    Gladiator's Medallion vs Relentless/Adaptation

    Is Gladiator's Medallion really a must have for any serious kind of PvP? Even as a Human, Orc, Undead or Dwarf you would take it over other two Talent choices? Why?
    I know Adaptation sucks vs Sap, but Relentless is not bad at all for some more tanky specs, who can survive a stun or two. What do you think? Which class, spec or race is less "Gladiator's Medallion dependent?"
    I would say Human Paladin could play without it, Orc Warrior maybe and Holy Priest with that CC removal Talent every 30 seconds.

    It depends. Always trinket in bgs, but orc relentless and adaptation human are both alright in arena as well. It depends on the comp though.

    I generally only use adapt in BGs or in mongo arena comps when we don't face a rogue. There are generally instances in which you want to just sit a CC, but for those two instances I like it better. For BGs I like it better because you can stay mounted if you get hit with a poly while traveling. In the arena mongo comps it is just about getting that initial damage out as fast as possible and I use it there.

    Of course, as you mentioned rogues present a problem with sap. I almost never use relentless though, I play a human and I switch between adapt and 2min as I see fit.

    As a general rule I have relentless as a default choice for my healers. Especially my orc healers.
    When playing DD specs I instead use medallion most of the time simply because being able to break cc's on you while bursting is hella strong. The only exception to this I can think of atm is on my orc shaman when playing ele - again simply because relentless + hardiness is really strong.
    I could imagine any human running with adaption is also just fine since you have EMfH. Less so with undead since it feels like there is less fears in the game.
    I think Blizzard has done a good job balancing those three talents as they fit different situations and I personally will be changing them all the time according to which comp I'm facing.
