@Annika, I'm not sure what you are saying nor am I sure of the actual numbers, so you could be right, but you really can't break down by spec. Regarding needing 800-850 res, how can a Warlock even get this now though? Arena ratings of some sort are needed for any worth while gear, but if you are getting beat so that you can't get the ratings need you can't get the gear needed. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. Also just because warlocks with DK and Pallys in 3s are doing well, doesn't mean Warlocks are fine. Its sort of like saying "boy X always (and only) gets good grades when he sits next to boy Y, so he must know the material."

@Kelerton-800 res is not an insurpassable goal to pass. I'm a priest (shadow) and know all too well about exploding in PVP situations. Getting the res is a bit more of a committment than getting PVE gear, but arena is probably not the best way to get the gear.Firstly, wintergrasp is an honor goldmine. This gets you the 3 available pieces of WG gear, plus honor for hateful ring, neck, cloak, belt and bracers. Then you can either get crafted gear, EOH or honor savage gladiator gear, or EOV hateful gladiator gear.I went from my BC resiliance set (pretty sad) to over 800 resiliance in 3 weeks (plus time invested in pug naxes for emblems that I hadn't been using). Gearing up isn't trivial, and it sucks that some classes can just jump into arena and other cant, but that doesnt make it some impossible goal.

I haven't spent a single arena point and max out at 1047 resilience. Take away the 2 vault drops (213 chest, 200 gloves) and the 3 JC res gems, and I'm down to around 1k.Again, no arena points spent, no rated honor gear either. (Gritz Eldre'Thalas)
