Wow. I never really sat down and shifted through what was available (just looked at AtlasLoot). I was disappointed at the lack of gear, but apparently I forgot about the PVP gear would be what I would use for tanking ( a PVE ONLY function). Which come to think of it, I fail. I used the s3 (I think) PVP chest for the latter part of BC.Playing my feral druid just makes me angry (partly due to I can never win rolls on him, while my priest is rolling in loot). Maybe subconsciously I knew I would have to PVP again to get the gear I need for tanking raids. I will have to check out this guide again, when I get home, so I can what kind of honor/emblems/marks I have.Is there any other class that a good portion of the best gear for PVE comes from PVP gear?QQ rant over.

This isn't too uncommon, sadly enough. Even for a less than fully represented class, like Spriest (woo! free HK!), some of the PvP pieces are very good. The Deadly head is ~7th BiS (just below the Engineering craft, Sarth 2D and Naxx-25) The Deadly waist is ~4th BiS (just below Naxx-25 drops) The Deadly shoulder is ~5th BiS (right in the middle of Naxx-25 drops) The Deadly spell 1H is ~5th BiS (just below Malygos-10 drop and Naxx-25) The Deadly spell OH is ~5th BiS (just below Naxx-25) In general... the Deadly gear is better for PvE than almost all the current gear, except for Naxx-25. There are some slots where the PvP gear falls pretty far behind in PvE utility, but if you actually can gather this gear as an Spriest, you won't find upgrades until you're well into Naxx-25. Which I think is kinda sad. PvP gear should be great for PvP... sure... but it shouldn't be so great in PvE that I have to try to push my rock-bottom-performing instagibbed/freeHK class through Arena to get upgrades... to my raiding gear.
