Well, Exemel has made it to 80 and she has a bit different gear than she had at 57. I switched her from Enhancement to Elemental/Resto at 70 so she would only have to worry about one set of gear. When she arrived at 80, she was already Heroic-eligible. But I still spent a few minutes seeing if I could improve hear gear.
Since Hallows End was running, it wasn’t simple enough to pick those up before she even hit 80.
Nice upgrade from Ritualistic Shield. And cheap, too, since you buy it with Honor.
It took me almost a year to get one of those for my Paladin. I got this from her first Heroic.
For around 19G from the AH

She is now Forge of Souls eligible. Not a bad 5 minutes work.
