I just wanted to point out that all savage gladiator gear is available for massive amounts of honor points in stormwind. 50-60k per is expensive but not impossible. Could you guys here at WoWInsider please make a post explicitly stating this? I don't think many people know about it.

also, any news on if the honor cap has been raised?

If I'm not mistaken the cap for honor is something like twice the amount of the most expensive piece of gear for your class. If this is true then I'm sure its been raised.

50-60K honor is not "massive amounts", it's the same amount, proportional to honor gained, as honor pieces always cost.

However, all the research I have done contradicts this. For example:http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41949The Savage Gladiator mage set requires, according to wowhead, and everywhere else I've checked, either honor and arena points, or Emblems of Heroism, which only drop off Heroics and raids.I am in a casual guild of my friends from real life. We occasionally will run an instance together if we happen to have 3-5 people together online in the same level range, but that is by no means commonplace.I'm often more motivated than my casual friends, but don't want to quit the guild to join a group of strangers, which is why I was always glad Blizzard had a set that I could get by hard work I put in alone.If I can grind honor in the BGs and get a set, I'm completely happy with that. I don't care if it takes me 20 times longer to do than it would in a dedicated raiding guild or arena team. But if what I'm reading is true, it seems impossible for the solo player to gear up.

It requires Arena... some 350 for the http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41848 for example.Not much admittedly, but still, you have to do Arena for blues... or else blow 45 emblems of heroism on it

According to wowwiki:The savage gear costs 50-60k honor OR 12k honor + some arena points.

Guys, I'm telling you, go to the Champion's hall in Stormwind (I don't know the Horde equivalent). On the left side near the back is the apprentice armor vendor. He sells these items. My Death Knight is currently wearing the shoulders purchased this way. WoW Insider, please, help me spread the word.
