Warlock PvP Gear Guide

On this page, we will go over the Phase 5 best in slot gear for Warlocks in PvP.


PvP Best in Slot List for Warlocks

This is our recommended gear for PvPing as a Warlock. This gear will maximize your chances in World PvP, Battlegrounds and the Arena, although will also be largely dependent on your Composition.

You only need 3% Spell Hit to be capped in PvP, so we will not value Spell Hit highly when considering the suggested items.

Using PvP gear with Resilience is generally the way to go, but it can be useful to use some PvE items for increased DPS, especially if you have access to strong raid gear and no Gladiator gear for that slot.

Any piece you lack from the best in slot list below can be temporarily replaced by Rare-quality Honor gear or whatever questing or crafted gear you have.
