Regene, maybe there are some great players out there who can be competitive wearing ilvl352 gear in a bg where everyone else is ilvl390. But that's not a game most people want to play, and Blizz shouldn't set it up this way. It's absolutely ridiculous to offer this kind of pvp experience.

That would be nice. My shadow priest has 5/5 season 11 cata gear, but I had to go with the crafted off set pieces for everything else. I did end up buying an iLvl 440 necklace, 417 wand, and a 409 trinket so I can have better stats and damage more on par with someone geared in full season 11. I'm capped on honor, converting extra honor to justice points and hoping they bring the gear back soon so I can upgrade my crafted pieces and start gearing for my disc spec. I have to do the same for this toon's holy spec and about 6 other toons lol.

Just wanted to point out, this affects not only players who are level capped at 85, but also the entire leveling experience for players who purchased Mists. Many players enjoy PvP as they level up, some even level up entirely by PvP. How fun is this going to be if they aren't able to purchase the most current PvP gear? I don't see how can Blizzard call this a PvP expansion but not allow players access to the PvP gear being used by levels 85-89. Buy Mists...make a new monk or Pandarian...and have fun PvPing in season 9 gear when your opponents are wearing season 11??? That's an offer I've already refused.

You guys are overlooking something, there is Cataclysm level PVP gear but they decided this time to not make it the final seasons armor

Go to dalaran, talk to the Legacy Armor goblin and you'll find vicious 352 gear. Whether it's better than the crafted 85 sets, I'm not sure. When a set goes outdated for PVP always look to the legacy armor vendors :o

Hope this helps someone


This. Most if not all of the PvP sets from Wrath are available for JP in Dalaran, check there for any Cata sets as well. Push comes to shove just use the crafted gear. It isn't ideal, and it's kind of a dirty trick, but it's a good marketing ploy. Nobody's going to rage quit over this, let's be real.


I will ... i have no desire to be forced to buy mop or lvl to 90 just to pvp with non-outdated gear , pve encounters are a joke if i wanted to pve allday id go back to eq

If I were a developer I would take that PVP Gear out all the way to 90. Then you get it.

Go level, then PVP. If you don´t like it unsubscribe.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention this.

Since apparently some people want to twink at 85, I'm warning you now that you will be in the 85-89 bracket. That means you will be facing people(level 89s) with somewhere around double your health, way better gear than you, and their level 87 abilities. I wonder what will happen when you get 1 shot by some Warlock/Frost mage who has popped all his cds.

How about you play the game your way, and we'll play it ours.

Don't like it? Pay my sub.

at the people belittling the desire to actually wear the gear at 85, this is likely the reason it was removed in the first place - because it is actually viable (not awesome against 89s, but viable) in the 85-89 bracket.

also, TRANSMOG

bump.

i asked a gm about this, if it was taken out on purpose or it's just a time thing. waited like 3 days to get a response.

anywho, from what the gm told me the vendors for 85 pvp gear should be in the same place. i was very specific in asking as well. unfortunately i think the gm is just as clueless as i am :/

the thing is, i'll get mop when i want to get it. which is eventually. why push customers into buying the next expansion when they aren't done enjoying the previous one yet?

Lighthouse! I believe I may have run into you again, but on my priest, Khyra, in AB a few days ago. You were using mind vision on me when I was at LM. When I saw it was you (or thought it was you lol) I was like OMG and I waved and danced at you like I said I would do....only problem is that it was the wrong toon lol.
