    Useful items for WPvP (including Censer Farming)

    EDIT: Since this list is rapidly growing, I'm going to actually specify my ground rules for these items:
    It cannot be an equipped item, unless it is a Shirt or Tabard
    It cannot be something used every day by raiders (hint: dps potions, main stat flasks, healing potions, far too obvious)
    If you normally have them in your bags, it's probably not for this list.

    I'm working on a list of useful items for world PvP, and figured I'd post what I have so far:

    Pandaria Only:
    Cursed Swabby Helmet
    Eternal Warrior's Sigil Doesn't work above level 94.
    Windfeather Plume

    Timeless Isle Only:
    Golden Glider (Max 20, Engineeringless Goblin Glider)
    Sticky Silkworm Goo (Max 10, short range root)
    Black Ash (90% healing reduction, short 20 yard range)
    Ash-Covered Horn Super fast 20 second duration land mount

    General Purpose:
    Aqua Jewel
    Hardened Shell
    Salyin Battle Banner
    Shard of Archstone

    Tailoring:
    Frostweave and/or Embersilk Net Embersilk does damage in addition to rooting, but is dispellable as a magic effect (and as such can be prevented with effects like Cloak of Shadows and Antimagic Shell)

    Alchemy:
    Darkwater Potion/Draenic Swiftness Potion (70% run speed, 200% swim speed)

    For the non druid/hunters.

    Food for gankers!

    And when you want to avoid people;
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=22823/elixir-of-camouflage
    Hunters can just glyph aspect of the beast. It works wonders that, esspecially in a flying zone; on my 70 hunter I can hunt 70-80s with ease in northrend, even if I have 10+ 90s on my thail. The chance of them actually flying into me at the right elevation is exeedingly slim (esspecially as I see them on my minimap long befoure they can spot me).

    ****
    Lw only but they are pretty decent

    I usually farm blood coins solo or teamed up with a friend. Since we're a warrior and retri pala, staying inland is a bad idea. Thus, staying on water and making quick precision attacks and then retreating back into the open water is how we get most of our kills. The stuff we find invaluable for this:

    - Darkwater potion (freedom/bubble + this + water nearby = escape from certain death)

    - Cursed Swabby Helmet (awesome survival tool + can be used on evermaw/vezuvius for mass coin farming while all the pve idiots are focusing on boss)

    - Water Strider mount (absolutely mandatory unless you got some other form of water walking)

    - Crystal of Insanity

    - that black ash thing you loot from ordos braziers that lowers healing by 90% on target (an awesome thing, will allow you to kill even heroic geared healers before they realize what's happening)

    - engineering nitro sprint thingie (escape tool)

    - engineering glider cloak thingie (escape tool)

    - swiftness potion (cheaper version of darkwater potion, but still viable)

    - Hook of the Master Angler (good escape tool if you're out of darkwater/cursed swabby + handy if you want to sneak up on someone by staying underwater)

    This looks like really good idea. Should try it later.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just to add specifics :

    Discomboculator ray dismounts ground mounts but not flying mounts
    Frostweave net should be used since embersilk does not work against magic immune targets (AMS, clock of shadows, etc)

    Oh and restorative amber for quick hp recovery.

    Just keep in mind, this method is not very action-packed. Depending on server, time of day, and luck, you can go a long time without getting any action.

    However, once you get the gist of it and learn not to get overly cocky, you'll often be able to go the entire 1 hour duration of the censer buff without dying, which is IMHO a lot more fun than spending 2 mins slaughtering people and then waiting 8 mins for censer to come off cd because you got zerged by 3+ pve-ers.

    Mr. Smite's Brass Compass. It's like an AoE player taunt in that they get jealous when they don't have it and want you dead.

    Slightly more serious item, Battle Horn. AoE pull that can keep people in combat, flying or on the ground. Cast time though.

    Might be an idea to check out the Going To Need A Bigger Bag achievement to see if there's anything else not listed.

    Battle Horn aggros all mobs in 40 yards to the user.
    As of my last check, all relevant items from that achievement are listed.

    what about those items that grant you a super speed ground mount for like 10secs, great for escape and catching people up.

    think theres 3, a mushan in valley, a goat in kun lai and a yak in dread wastes.
    Too cool for a signature

    Yes, as can Big Daddy, and Frost Grenade can root/freeze a 90 as well, but the damage component is negligible.

    That's still useful, no? It should keep a player in combat, and at the very least you can use it to agro critters or whatever to not get sapped, or a random mob to break CC on you.
