Re: Gearing for PvP

said by Jobbie:

When do you think 5.2 will hit?

Two weeks.

said by Jobbie:

I think we are safe to go for Dreadful off set pieces like neck rings trinkets?

Of course. If you're honor capped, spend it. Don't let it go wasted. However I do suggest trying to be at 4k honor when patch drops to have a head start. Outside of that, spend whatever.

Ok, I will one week away from WoW so that will give me one more week to get offset and cap honor to start getting the Malevolent pieces.

My GF and I run BGs all the time.. already decked and just do it for fun. We also have a few guildies that run and we usually have some spots. If anyone is interested shoot me a PM. We're on Shadowmoon but I think you can still queue cross server BGs.

Edit - Alliance that is...

Also as of 5.2 the dreadful gear will be crafted. So if your not doing arena's now and capping conquest the best way to get an advantage is:
Get 4k honor buy item say ring
Get 4k honor again upgrade ring
repeat this with all the off set items as once 5.2 hits the upgrade system is gone so that way your offset items are just below Malv. Then when 5.2 hits you can buy the crafted set items with gold and then buy the Malv weap with honor.
Then you will be able to kill stuff in 2s in the first week, you will still be behind but not giant amount like now. You will still need to grind out honor to get full malv fast as most ppl already have that.

I found my dk was pretty fun to grind honor with as frost does a ton of AOE and single target dmg. Also in a group i am seldom the first targeted.

My Unholy DK is in a pretty good place for not doing RBG and arena. Fully upgraded dread/gemmed/enchants with three pieces of Mal plus sha-weapon. Usually top three in damage.

The ele shaman is finally in full dread with mal ring. Only have the 463 crafted healer shield and green 429 mace though. I'm still getting blown up quite a bit and my dps isn't that great. Fire mages, rogues, warriors, kittys counter me hard. I'm stacking resil as much as I can, just under 60%currently.

The blanket silence nerf will be a welcoming gift though.

One of the things I've noticed lately is that Ele is kinda squishy. Im just going to honor cap and wait for malevolent to become honor bought. Me and Jobbie were just destroying people in ToK. So funny watching a couple go in panic mode when getting hit from both sides. But then again, we tried that on a battlemaster warrior and both of us got wrecked. Still hella fun though.

You just need to win like 10 games. Try it towards the end of the week when everyone in there sucks.

^this
it will be much easier to cap 2's toward the end of the WoW week.

For 3's..i prefer tuesdays. only because of the wait time issue

Do you guys not have contacts in game that can/will carry you to a 2s cap?

I don't and I don't want to pay 2k gold per win with the farmers.

100g per win is pretty typical, 200g per win is generous. It's well worth the 1k-2k you'd pay for cap the first couple of weeks, after 2 weeks hopefully you'll have enough gear that you could find a partner to play with you. Keep in mind that your MMR begins @1500 and 2s are used just for points by people with full mal and they often stilll play in the 1500 bracket. You will have to lose quite a few games to bring you MMR down. Once it gets down to the ~1100 range you'll find people with similar gear/experience (or lack thereof). Actually the very first thing i'd suggest to any person new to arena is to find a friend that's willing to lose like 20 matches with you to tank your MMR - this will make it easier for someone to carry you later since it averages your MMR and your partners for game matching. Good luck!

any insight on the patterns for the pvp gear being something we can purchase or will they be drops?

Honestly I would just get a basic feel for playing your toon in PVP for the time being. If the patch is somewhat ~2 weeks out, there is no need to bust your ass to try to get gear when everything will be changed up after the patch. I would do some BGs here and there and maybe work on getting atleast your Mal shoulders/gloves and then helm. The shoulders and gloves are 1750 conq and both provide a great start. Epic shoulder enchant and socket and the gloves always give a boost to an ability as a passive effect. Either one of those can be achieved in 2 weeks from doing BGs. By the time you work towards your shoulder/gloves you should have enough honor to purchase a few pieces of honor gear. The honor gear will not be obsolete once the patch hits and will still provide some value in BGs. Arenas... I wouldn't even hassle with it until after the patch if you are fresh into PVP.

If they did it like Cata, Contender's will just turn into Dreadful. Who knows, maybe they'll smack a rep grind on it that will take you 5 months to do like the old world people ones....
