How viable is PvP gear for early raiding.

5 posts in this topic

Also what would you consider the fastest way to gear up? In addition at what point would you consider changing from your PvP gear at what ilvl?

PvP gear is fine for entry level to be honest, in some cases you can get pieces with better stats than pre-raiding equivalent gear.

 

Thing is there's a few slots which depending on class/spec are completely dominated by the PvE options. Namely tier slots, trinkets, and the legendary ring. If you can get into groups and get lucky with drops for these slots, even if they're lower ilvl than your PvP gear; you're all set even if the rest of your gear is PvP stuff as long as it's properly itemized.

I'm not sure about what kind of raiding you are talking about: LFR, Normal, HC?

 

Anyways, it's a pretty big difference in approach to game: gearing from PvP or PvE.

People that like and want to raid would rather prefer PvE way to gear up and there's a lot of possibilities to do it fast at this moment.

Mythic Dungeons +695 Baleful + HFC LFR + craft may easily bring you to 700-705 ilvl in one week. Including the possibility to upgrade this gear with Valor, while 700 ilvl PvP gear couldn't be upgraded.

That's right, before HFC and Tanaan, PvP gear was really better and faster to obtain but I wouldn't rely on it this far into expansion. 

Regarding the question at what point to switch from the PvP gear to PvE in raids, I would say - immediately. PvP gear has PvP bonuses so despite of ilvl, is not a big gain.

Currently the pvp gear will give you the ilvl and base stat boost you need to start with Normal mode raiding, you just need to quickly replace your trinkets with the ones from the world boss Kazzak and get your Set pieces & other trinkets from the raiding.

I think as a pally or deathnight u should get the pvp armor set bonus because it gives u a dps bonus but get the trinkets from kazzack until u can get some gear out of mytic dungeons or normal raids
