What to Wear: A Shadow Priest’s Guide to 10-man Icecrown Citadel Gear

As a follow-up to the 25-man list on Tuesday, I bring you the 10-man flavor.

Your boss-by-boss gear guide, after the jump.

The Lower Spire

Lord Marrowgar

  • Cord of the Patronizing Practitioner(251). Your first available belt upgrade, and better than your prior 10-man and badge options for this slot.
  • Sliver of Pure Ice(251). Despite it's on use effect of MP5 restoration that is targeted to casters, the pure +158 spellpower is very attractive, and doesn't require you putting your faith into simcrafted tests of the value of procs.

Lady Deathwhisper

Gunship Battle

Deathbringer Saurfang

The Plague Works



Professor Putricide

The Crimson Hall

Blood Princes

Blood-Queen Lana'thel

Frostwing Halls

Valithria Dreamwalker

  • Lich Wrappings(251). Thanks to its hit component, this is not considered to be as desirable as the Emblem of Frost vendor cloak. But it's the only DPS caster back in the 10-man unless you are doing hard modes.
  • Leggings of the Refracted Mind(251). Solid upgrade for this spot, although not as well-itemized for shadow priests as the legs from Festergut.
  • Sister Svalna's Aether Staff(251). Another hit-infused staff. If you need hit in this slot, it will be your best non-hard mode option for a 2-handed weapon.


  • Robes of Azure Downfall(251). This is your best chest upgrade in this instance unless you are doing hard modes, and is better than the Basic T10 Crimson Acolyte Raiments.
  • Bleak Coldarra Carver(251). The +61 hit spend n this item makes it be considered to be less desirable than the other weapon options in 10. But if you can shuffle items around to put its hit to good use, it will be a good piece.

The Frozen Throne

The Lich King

Loot tables TBD.

  1. Thanks for the list!
    When linking wowhead items like this, it’d be helpful to have the following line in your code to give us the mouseover tooltips (taken from the Powered by Wowhead page on their site).

  2. Okay, it took out the HTML code. I should’ve have known. Replace the [‘s with the angled brackets.
    [script src=”http://static.wowhead.com/widgets/power.js”][/script]

  3. I purposefully don’t use javascript on the site. I do have the links set to open in a new window though so you don’t have to navigate away from the page then back.
