Holy/Shadow lvl 90 Undead Server Arthas

I am returning to the World of Warcraft after several years. Many, many things have changed in the game and I am hopelessly trying to play catch-up. Most importantly is getting up to snuff as a PvP healer. So far, all I manage to do is tickle my teammates with my heals. I have looked into Tyrannical Gladiator pieces, but I've noticed there are quite a few changes to attributes.

I usually queue up for random battlegrounds as I want to maximize the frequency of getting into one. I tend to heal more with AoE with [Chakra: Sanctuary] enabled.

  • Buy contender gear(crafter PvP gear) on the Auction house, then farm BG's for Hounor with the hounor buy tyranical gear when you are full Tyranical start arena and get full new gear,

    Just bought 3 pieces of Contender, already seeing a major boost in stats. Thank you very much for the response!

As you just came back to WoW there is a certain route you can take to getting up to scratch with gear, It's a 3 step process.

Step One

Go to the AH and buy a full set of Contender Gear(crafted PvP gear)

Step Two

Queue for BGs and farm honor until you have full Tyranical Season 13 gear(24k Honor roughly)

Step Three

Queue for Arena and start getting your 3-5k cap and buy s14 gear with. Once you start getting s14 gear you are up to date with most players who are gearing still. I don't think it's possible to be fully geared yet but as I am not doing PvP this season, I'm not sure.

    At this point I'd sooner buy Crafted Malevolent gear, as it doesn't look like the Contender's gear was scaled up. Nov 22, 2013 at 3:54
  • I don't think you can buy crafted Malevolent gear.

  • Why not? It's all BoE and tailors, LW and blacksmiths make it. Nov 22, 2013 at 19:15
