Since arenas are so great now, can we please get some prot pally and prot warrior PVP gear? WTB gear with block value AND some resil on it. Shields with block or at least some strength to make up the lack of offensive stats on it. Weapons that will allow for swifter rage generation i.e. something at the slowest 1.7 (I dont know what a prot pally favors: fast or slow).I mean for christ sakes, rets dont have to share set bonuses or glove bonuses with holy, DK's have an awesome set of bonuses no matter what spec, and neither do druids (glove bonus is the same on boomkin/tree, but the set bonuses are awesome from what I hear). No other spec has to deal with less than spectacular bonuses (glove/4 set).Warriors are the only ones it seems that has to take gear for an "unpopular" but "viable" spec and make it work even though nothing about it works (i.e. how do you hamstring and then attack if you are constantly dumping all your rage to attack or defend.)Lets not even acknowledge the lack of weapons or properly itemized shields for prot pvp'ers.

Didn't you hear? Prot pallies in healing gear are the new best healers in arenas now.

@iceThat shield has no block value stats on it, but it does have block rating. What we need is a shield more like these: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39276 (Skull of Ruin), http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40400 (Wall of Terror), or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45877 (The Boreal Guard).High stam, a nice chunk of str, and most importantly, additional block value. Shields might be considered armor for most classes, but for prot warriors and paladins, our shield is actually more of a weapon. Until then, pvp is not really going to be actually viable and we will be forced to continue to use PVE items to PVP
