Malevolent Gladiator's Elite Version Offhand requires 2200 rating and you must have first earned 15700 conquest points this season before you can buy it.
Malevolent Gladiator's Offhand (normal version) requires that you must have first earned 7250 conquest points this season before you can buy it.
OMFG... all the honor gear is better than all the heroic dungeon gear... I'm not kidding. WTF
Are they really though? Pvp power doesn't count for PvE, i think they are just comparable, maybe SLIGHTLY better...but then again maybe im looking into it wrong
They've realised what a mistake it was so are now downgrading all 464 PvP Epics to be 458 Blues (and 450 JP blues to be 458 blues), but before that fix is in place this is the kind of ridiculousness that was in place. Compare:
Dreadful Gladiator's Silk Cowl
Socket Bonus: +180 PvP Power
Item Level 464
Equip: Increases your critical strike rating by 605 (1.01% @ L90).
Equip: Increases your mastery rating by 365 (0.61 @ L90).
Equip: Increases your pvp resilience rating by 362 (1.17% @ L90).
Equip: Increases your pvp power by 362 (1.37% @ L90).
Whitemane's Embroidered Chapeau
Socket Bonus: +180 Intellect
Durability 85 / 85
Requires Level 90
Item Level 463
Equip: Increases your critical strike rating by 497 (0.83% @ L90).
Equip: Increases your haste rating by 450 (1.06% @ L90).
Ya, I'm glad they're nerfing Honor gear. Whitemane's is actually better because of the socket bonus, but there were plenty of other pieces. Anyone know how long it will take to hit revered with August Celestials?
I think I might have to start working on conquest points for boots and bracers.
Why these pieces? Simple: some dumb-shit employee at Blizzard neglected the fact that Mogu'shan Vaults does not drop any Legs, Rings, Bracers or Boots for Mages and Warlocks!
However, T14 legs can be obtained from the Sha of Anger and a Ring and Boots can be obtained from Salyis' Warband, all of them at a better level than Mogu'Shan Vaults normal. Getting them, however, will be a stretch.
Going for the Robe next week, but I'm really tempted to get a ring. Robe is a huge DPS upgrade from the 463 with a double socket/bigger socket bonus. If Vaults doesn't drop these other aforementioned slots I might rethink that. Rings a safe bet.
Easyly obtainable... go play on a huge server... at least 7 to 8 raids every 2 hours try to tap Sha... really easy to get O_O
I'm playing on Stormscale EU. I know your pain, but the thing here is that you can do it 12 times per Day and doesn't really require any effort from you at all. Join a raid try to be there tapping Sha. Did your raid tap it? Congratulations you just got a free set of epic raid quality boots.
but depends what piece you need tbh also what spec you are hit/mastery is pretty awful(weakest stats) for frost/fire
Robe would give me about.. 100 more int, 126 haste,474 mastery.. but make me lose 560 crit.
Gloves would give me about.. 160 more int, 373 hit, 141 mastery but make me lose 478 haste (or 490 crit if I get the crit gloves).
The question is; Is it worth the int gain to lose the crit? For glove its a upgrade, but robe Im not so sure.
