Shadow PvP: Warlords Season 16

(Sticky)



I'm gonna check those numbers myself when I find time. I need to find out what the stat loss and gains are though by socketing like this. Thanks for your help!


Whoops, I meant to use Purified Demonseye for the blue sockets.

There may be a rounding error since I assume Blizzard rounds reforging to the nearest whole number, but that should only affect the spirit total by +/- 1. Here are the stat differences (assuming the +int/sta blue gems were originally used):

+77 haste
-17 spirit
-60 stamina


I'm gonna buy the 4-Piece Mooncloth Blue set by weeks end and check. I haven't been able to get the numbers that close so I'm not sure about how they round off. It may just display the rounded number but maintaining the actually math to the hundredth.

I am also doing mathematics for an Int set using full Epics. I regemmed for the pure offense spec and with the addition of the 2200 items today, I pulled 8836 Spell Power fully buffed. It was... nice.

Please continue to request a sticky.

sweet guide, really helping me get into shadow pvp

might be handy to do a gear-up order

like starting from a base of pvp craft gear then going up from there as to which ones you should get first

Actually I'm working on a Epic set. I cannot justify creating a Crafted Set guide though.

Sono,

When leveling tailoring, the following items need to be created. So if you level tailoring you should have some. Alternatively, you might be able to get them cheap on the AH. If you're casual like I am, they're definitely worth it. I do pretty well in non-rated bgs using them.

Emberfire Shoulders
Emberfire Gloves
Emberfire Belt
Emberfire Boots
Emberfire Bracers

The boots may be skipped when leveling tailoring by creating dreamcloth if the tailor is not in a hurry to get 525, so you may or may not find them in the AH.

There's also fireweave stuff, but it tends to be more expensive to make, so I personally didn't make any. Don't bother with anything that requires 525 tailoring (robe, legs, hat) unless you have money to burn.

As Merrik says, make sure to reforge any master/crit and excess spirit/hit to haste.

I prefer double 2 piece over the 4 / 1, you should add that as an option.


The original guide was for double dipping. But most Priests have said they prefer the 4 Piece Mooncloth. And with the removal of double dipping next season, it made sense to have just one guide.

I too use 2/5-3/5 in my gear. But that is mainly due to me investing way too much into my gear by the time they changed Mooncloth's 4-Piece bonus. Next week I'll be in full 2200 itemization, so I'll begin buying the gear needed for 4-Piece Mooncloth, as an option I can switch too.

yea i had my crafted set built awhile ago, opted for fireweave robe, belt, pants because of the haste on 2 of em and crit over mast on the other

i'm talking more in terms of how you should spend your honor points at first while gearing up to get maximum bang-for-the-buck while running bgs. I opted to get my medallion first because its an additional 301 res + its use. Then i went with shoulders (since i already had the gloves from BH) to get the hit from spirit and 2 piece 400 res bonus. Then got the other trinket for an additional 301 res + spellpower

then i went with cloak for spell pen, rings, and recently got the neck...all because those slots didnt have any res. I dont know whether that was the best path or if i should of got the 4 piece first, but i enjoy the ~30% dmg reduction. The difference is MASSIVE, i was getting ripped apart to begin with, crafted gear made a big difference, and the rest since then has really made it so i can actually kill people. Every once and awhile ill get ripped apart (a certain fury warrior comes to mind, plowed through my like i wasnt even there lol)

so ill be going for the 4 piece now, once i have that i figure i can step into arenas

So apparently a chicken has to be sacrificed and its entrails read by a witch doctor for a Sticky to happen. Someone find a chicken.

Hey Merrik, if you have a second, could you critique my Priest? Pay no mind to the trinkets, I forget to switch them sometimes. And after reading your guide, I will be reforging into haste, and respeccing into Twisted Faith for hit.

I just want to make sure I make all the right choices from here on in.

Thanks!

For starters your gear is all over the place as in what stat you have there now will change later (ie PvE Hit Neck will become PvP Haste neck). As long as you pickup the items listed earlier on, you'll be fine when you are done grinding out the Honor.

Until then it is hard to critique you. You are missing multiple enchants and gems all over or have the wrong gems slotted. Just follow the Guide.

As for Specs, you can copy mine I guess. But you also need to alter your Glyphs.

You must have SW:Death, it isn't optional. (PRIME GLYPH)
Also drop Shadow Protection and replace it with Fading. (MINOR GLYPH)

If you need more specifics, please ask. Good luck to you.

Thanks for your time, I will most likely message you in-game from here on.

Great thread! If you have tailoring should you still enchant greater intellect to your upgraded cloak or go with lightweave embroidery? thanks

I've reported this post for Sticky like 4 times. As for the chicken thing, heading to KFC right now. That'll do, right? Or shall I find a boomkin?

The funny thing is the Cloak being censored also has to do with Penetration.

Coincidence?
