Are you serious with the Tomes?
I'm sure I'm late to the party on this one, been gone for pretty much a year. I hit 85 and think I should upgrade my tome and find that the Eastemnet Tome of Wind-rider (level 80) gives +54 power over its level 60 counterpart. That's about 1 quick-shot. My captain friend links me one of his standards, and the passive morale bonus has about doubled from 60 to 80 and the physical mastery rating has increased by about 30%.
