Oracle Talisman of Ablution

We continue our spotlight on some leveling gear for you to hunt down as you make your way up to 80 with this rep trinket you should start working on right now.
Name: Oracle Talisman of Ablution (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Trinket
Damage/Speed: N/A
Improves crit strike rating by 71.

Restores mana, energy, rage, or runic power when you kill a target that grants honor or XP. That proc look familiar? It should -- it was on the Power-infused Mushroom that probably helped you out right around Zangarmarsh the last expansion. Pretty helpful for leveling -- it's helpful in PvP too, obviously, but the XP add makes this helpful for leveling as well.

The old trinket gave back about 200 mana (or 20 energy or rage), but we're not exactly sure how much this one gives back. Probably more in terms of mana (since we probably all have bigger mana pools), but you'll probably have to do some testing (or just check the comments below) to find out exactly how much it gives.

And you probably thought I spelled "Absolution" wrong, but no -- it's actually the Talisman of Ablution, which is the act of cleaning yourself, ritually or for hygenic purposes. And now you know.

How to Get It: This requires Exalted with the Oracles, one of the two new "choice" factions in Northrend. The other is the Frenzyheart tribe of Wolvar, and while the Wolvar have a nice trinket too (it gives a nice damage boost after a kill, though it seems meant more for PvP, since XP doesn't proc it), the Oracle one is the one you'll really want for leveling. You can find both factions in Sholazar Basin, and unlike the old Aldor/Scryer choice, you'll get to choose your faction at the end of the grind, not the beginning, so if you decide you'd rather have the other one, you can do that.

Do the quests, go Oracle, and once Exalted you can buy this from Geen, the pretty-looking Oracle above, for 42g 93s 75c.

Getting Rid of it: I still have my Mushroom in the bank, and you'll probably have this in your bank after Northrend as well. In fact, while I'm thinking about it, why have I not been wearing that Mushroom since I first stepped foot in Northrend? Missed opportunity! Vendors will give you 10g 73s 43c if you do want to sell it, and it probably won't disenchant -- nobody's tried yet.
