I’ve Got Friends

This post will focus on reputation rewards for the restoration shaman. There are lots of factions to look at in WotLK. Most of them have at least something for the aspiring pre-raid Shaman. Some of the equipment is as good as you can get in raids currently. This will probably change as Blizzard ships content patches out with higher level content. This is going to be a fairly simple list with some comments.

Alliance Vanguard
Lordaeron’s Resolve

Horde Expedition
Warsong Stormshield

The Items from Kalu’ak are starter items and should be replaced quickly… except for the cool fishing pole of course.
The Kalu’ak
Cuttlefish Tooth Ringmail
Totemic Purification Rod

There is no tabard for instance rep grinding, and the quest line to start getting Hodir rep is long. I assume this will be a requirement in raid guilds as things mature, much like the shoulder enchants from Aldor and Scryer were in BC.
The Sons of Hodir
Lesser Inscription of the Crag
Lesser Inscription of the Storm
Giant-Friend Kilt (leather)
Greater Inscription of the Crag
Greater Inscription of the Storm

Outside Naxx, mail belts are hard to come by. I would consider the one from Ebon Blade rep.
Knights of the Ebon Blade
Dark Soldier Cape
Kilt of Dark Mercy
Belt of Dark Mending (cloth)

Argent Crusade
Battle Mender’s Helm
Signet of Hopeful Light

Personally, I wouldn’t go for the cloth chest. I include it because the stats are nice tough. The Spell Power/Crit arcanum is for those who are doing more LHW spamming.
Kirin Tor
Helm of the Majestic Stag (leather)
Shroud of Dedicated Research
Arcanum of Burning Mysteries
Ghostflicker Waistband (leather)
Robes of Crackling Flame (cloth)
Pattern: Sapphire Spellthread
Design: Runed Scarlet Ruby

Again, I’d pass on the cloth sandals, but the stats are not awful. The Spell Power/mp5 arcanum is for a more traditional mostly chain heal healing role.
The Wyrmrest Accord
Arcanum of Blissful Mending
Gavel of the Brewing Storm
Grips of Fierce Pronouncements
Sandals of Crimson Fury (cloth)

Frenzyheart Tribe
Scavenged Feathery Leggings

The Oracles
Design: Sundered Forest Emerald
Sharkjaw Cap
