No mention of Honor Gear? Sure it's got Resilience on it, and excess stamina but it can be bought and it can fill a slot with something decent.

PvP gear is a waste of time if your goal is PvE end content, unless you happen to have a large stash of honor lying around. Best to grind your heroics and emblems first.I have a mage I got to 5k gs in a week after ding, getting lucky with some dops and rolls, crafting a few higher end (ToC patterns). Gearing up is the next step of levling after level cap and I always have fun seeing how fast I can get geared up to a respectable point/as far as I can go without raiding the big stuff.

@ ChevelaSeriously? Can you name a better caster cloak deal than http://www.wowhead.com/item=51332 because I sure cannot think of one. In fact, for caster dps'rs, i cant even think of a non-raid cloak that compares to this one...and that includes the (poorly itemized) frost emblem cloaks. 52k honor is a freaking steal but it gets even cheaper if you've been running instances as you can exchange your frost shards for wintergrasp commendations which convert to honor. Look, I get the fact that, as a general rule PVE gear > PVP gear for pvp, but by no means should you hobble yourself (and your dps) by strictly adhering to such generalizations.

Actually, Hoggersbud has a point. Depending on how many dungeons you ran leveling to 80, you may have a small stash of Stone Keeper's Shards, which can be converted directly into gear or into honor for gear. It won't be a ton, but it might be enough to get you a piece. Better than a kick in the pants, anyway.

LOL, meant to say: "as a general rule PVE gear > PVP gear for pve..."

So that's a rather silly objection. Besides a large stash of honor? That's really easy to get. Especially if your faction is dominant in WG, but even if not, you can get a few BGs done and build up enough honor to fill a slot or two with no trouble.

And don't forget, Wintergrasp Commendations are Bind-on-Account; it's the one way to have one character buy another's bind-on-pickup gear. Get your main to do the Wintergrasp weeklies while you're leveling the alt, then convert the shards to commendations and mail 'em off.It's also useful for twinking out your alts at low levels with gear from the battleground quartermasters.
