EDITING IN PROGRESS. Please be patient.
-This Guide consists of Posts #1 and #2.
-All 6.0.3 Primal (Lv100) discussions begin at post #390 on Page 20.
-No idea why my avatar's picture, level and achievement points are out of date.
-This guide is meant for general PvP and is not tailored for any one RBG/Arena and team composition.
This guide should offer the path to the best gearing and enchanting based on several different resources. However some of the information can be subjective, therefore your input is ALWAYS appreciated!
This updated guide uses Primal iLv660 PvP gear.

Popular Major Glyphs
- Glyph of Mass Dispel, Glyph of Psychic Horror, and Glyph of Silence.
The three above are usually the most popular for your common PvP situations.
It is always important to always change your Glyphs when you enter a BG, RBG, or Arena based on what the opposing team has, plus what your team makeup is.
For example if you are in an arena in which the opposing team does not have a Paladin or Mage, you will not need Glyph of Mass Dispel.
Before discussing Talent choices, I'd like to point out a few things.
Our Lv100 talent [Clarity of Power] focuses on direct damage without the use of our DoT's. Our Mastery no longer affects our DoT's and only affects Mind Blast, Mind Spike, and Mind Flay; two of which are the primary rotation for a CoP build. In my opinion a CoP build is the way to go in both Arenas and RBGs, regardless of the unique factors such as team/enemy composition. When we factor is Mastery to this, it is that much more appealing.
I am certain there are situations in which a DoT build using SI and AS would be a better choice, I just haven't encountered them yet. So keep in mind what I said in the beginning, this guide is very generic and not iron clad. You must make the best choices based off what you know and the situation.
