Ruby Sanctum Hunter Loot

06/24/10 – Ruby Sanctum Loot Table Update: Post updated with announced heroic loot. Scroll down to see the goodness. 🙂

Here’s a look at some of the hunter loot that will be dropping in Ruby Sanctum. Although patch 3.3.5 is scheduled to go live this week, Ruby Sanctum is not. The instance will be included in the patch, but it won’t be available until a later date. Blizzard is delaying the release of Patch 3.3.5 outside of North America, which means they won’t be allowing access to the instance until all realms worldwide are ready to go live with it.

Anyway, here’s a look at some of the sweet hunter loot dropping soon in a Ruby Sanctum near you…

Returning Footfalls (Boots)

Returning Footfalls Hunter Boots

These boots are basically Rock-Steady Treads V. 2.0. For those of you who can’t afford to craft the aforementioned boots, well… you’re in luck because these are free, provided you’re lucky enough to win the roll. 😉

The itemization is practically identical to that of the Rock-Steady treads, but just a little bit better. Also, you get a yellow socket in these bad boys, in place of the blue one on the Rock-Steady Treads. All in all, a slightly better pair of kicks.

Hunter Power Auras

Note: Visit this page to see my current Power Auras configuration, along with a complete listing of the Power Auras strings. Last updated – 06/08/2011.

The most common question I’ve received thus far concerning my UI is, “wtf is that starfire-looking buff smack in the middle of the screen, and more importantly, how do I get rid of it..?”

Dragonhawk Power Aura

If the one in question is the aura displayed above, then that would be the one which tells me when I’m not in Aspect of the Dragonhawk. Since I’m in that aspect 99% of the time, I rarely ever see it. For those of you that have downloaded my UI and wish to remove that one, just bring up the Power Auras config screen by typing in /powa. Click on the Dragonhawk icon and then ctrl-click on the Delete key.

Alternatively, if you want to try it but are using a lower level Hunter without Dragonhawk, then just change the aura to Aspect of the Hawk.

Since some of you may be unfamiliar with Power Auras, I figured I’d give a quick rundown of the ones I’m using and why.

Here’s a quick reference chart for the Power Auras I have configured for my Hunter.

Hunter Power Auras

This looks like a mess, but in practical situations only a few of them are visible. If I’m doing my job properly, then there are typically only a handful that appear on the screen at a given time.

So what are Power Auras?
