Update: I updated the list to include my new valuation of Haste Rating.
Update2: Made some changes to my BiS selections because Vaenor on Moonrunner pointed out a better way to pickup the Spell Hit I needed.
Update3: Onyxia's Loot has been added.
Here is part 2 to the gear ranking. This post focuses on the jewelry and weapons available to moonkin. Please refer to part 1 to see how the list was built.
Edit: This is the Alliance Version of the List. You can find the Horde Version here.

|Cloak of the Dormant Blaze||Ulduar10||104||104|
The Tribute Run Cloaks are awesome, but lets face it. They are not going to be easy to get. Blizzard hasn't been great about getting us many good cloak options in the past couple of patches, but the ones that are there are good sources of Hit. Therefore you you want to switch some stuff around this is a great place to do it.
|Darkbane Pendant||Twin Valkyrs 10 - H||237.9||161.4|
|Pendant of Fiery Havoc||Flame Leviathan25 H||237.9||154.1|
|*Wail of the Val'kyr||Twin Valkyrs 25 - H||222.1||222.1|

|Titanium Spellshock Necklace||Crafted||120.4||120.4|
|Veiled Amulet of Life||Gothik10||112.9||112.9|
There are not a lot of good necks in ToC, and that makes Wail of the Val'kyr an easier choice.
# The value of the Onyxia trinkets is the value of the set divided by 2. If you do not have the set, these trinkets are virtually worthless in terms of DPS. On top of that I don't have any hard numbers on the damage proc. I assumed the DoT has a 25% uptime.
As usual, I urge you to use this trinket ranking with a little bit of skepticism. Most of the new trinkets haven’t been tested to my knowledge and how their procs work is unknown. In most cases I assumed that they would work in a similar manner to the trinkets we had in the 3.0 version of WoW.
That said, when it comes to the best trinkets available the debate is very one sided. Both versions of the Reign of Unliving are clearly the best choices available. The best thing is, it looks like you can equip both of the at the same time.
Finally, I want to make one little comment about hit trinkets. I generally don’t recommend using hit trinkets after early raiding. The reason is they just have way to much hit on them. A single trinket can provide 45% of the total hit rating you need. Unfortunately that makes you very inflexible and forces you to skip some other awesome trinkets that provide a ton of Spell Power, Crit rating or Haste rating.
|Firestorm Ring||Jaraxxus 10 - H||260||158|

|Timeworn Silken Band||Maexxna10||112.1||112.1|
|Signet of Hopeful Light||Reputation - Argent Crusade||107.8||107.8|
Originally I would have equipped both versions of the Band of Deplorable Violence, but my revaluation of haste really helped the Nebula Band. You will also notice that the Emblem ring is very highly rated, but I would hold off picking it up until you have all of the tier piece you need.
|Symbol of Transgression||Jaraxxus 25 - H||275||171.2|
|Chalice of Benedictus||Twin Valkyrs 10 - H||247.3||168.9|
|Symbol of Transgression||Jaraxxus 25||242.9||151.9|
|Chalice of Benedictus||Twin Valkyrs 10||217.6||150.2|
|*Chalice of Searing Light||Twin Valkyrs 25 - H||190.4||190.4|
|Leviathan Fueling Manual||Flame Leviathan25||182.6||107.9|
|Chalice of Searing Light||Twin Valkyrs 25||168.7||168.7|
|Ward of the Violet Citadel||25 EoH||161.7||92.5|
|Watchful Eye||Steelbreaker10 H||137.6||86.6|
|Antediluvian Cornerstone Grimoire||Onyxia25||117.5||117.5|
|Handbook of Obscure Remedies||25 EoH||106.9||106.9|
|Antique Cornerstone Grimoire||Onyxia10||100.8||100.8|
I'm back to favoring a Main Hand/Off Hand combo and the Symbol of Transgression is the best Off Hand if you can use the hit. The two Onyxia offhand are a little better then what I've listed here due to the skeleton. Unfortunately I have no way to evaluate the DPS of the Skeleton. That said, I doubt it will be good enough to make these offhands that good in terms of DPS.
|Blade of Terasque||Northrend Beasts 25 - H||878.4||785.5|
|*Misery's End||Anubarak 25 - H||816.3||816.3|

|Blade of Dormant Memories||Patchwerk10||476.9||476.9|
|Dagger of Lunar purity||25 Champion's Seals||460.8||460.8|
Again, I am back to favoring MH/OH combos and this is the best Main hand without Hit rating
Two Handed Weapon:
|Clemency||Tribute Chest 25 - H||956.1||956.1|
|Enlightenment||Twin Valkyrs 10 - H||933.6||933.6|
|Cold Convergence||Anubarak 10 - H||914.4||914.4|
|Enlightenment||Twin Valkyrs 10||822.3||822.3|
|Staff of Endless Winter||Hodir25 H||806.7||806.7|
|Cold Convergence||Anubarak 10||800.3||800.3|
|Greatstaff of the Nexus||Malygos10||768.4||595.4|
|Icecore Staff||Hodir10 H||763.3||763.3|
|Pillar of Fortitude||Ulduar Zone Drop10||617.1||617.1|
|Staff of Restraint||Sartharion25||604.6||604.6|
|Staff of Draconic Combat||Eregos5||557.8||557.8|
I am back to favoring MH/OH combos but Staves are still a viable option since Blizzard now seems to be itemizing them better.
Currently the best Moonkin idol in game is the [Idol of Lunar Fury]. The others don't even come close, so buy it as soon as you can. If you can't get your hands on that one right a way the [Idol of the Shooting Star] is your best bet. It is of a higher ilevel then the [Idol of Steadfast Renewal] and you get a little more damage from using it. The last idol you will see is [Idol of Crying Wind]. It is not a good option in my opinion. The problem is that you will not be using IS enough to really make use of the idol. There may be some situations where it is better then the SF or Wrath idol but it will never beat the Idol of Lunar Fury.
I also don't recommend using any of the idols from TBC. All of the WotLK idols currently available will be purchaseable with Emblems in 3.2 and are much better then anything we found in Outland.
