Bug rewards free and discounted PvP gear [UPDATED]

The mail debacle isn't the only strange thing coming out of today's maintenance. PvP armor, both honor gear and arena gear, have had their prices all screwed up.
  • Select Season 4 weapons have had their rating requirements removed.
  • Select Season 2 weapons have found themselves bearing rating requirements they didn't previously have.
  • Warlocks and Priests can purchase full sets of Season 2 gear at absolutely no cost whatsoever.
  • Select Season 4 accessories can be acquired at no cost.
  • The Brutal Gladiator's Hatchet is completely free as well.

Those are only the things we know of right now, the problem may even go farther than that. I've checked the Tiers 4, 5 and 6 vendors with a few friends of various classes and haven't run into any oddities there yet. It seems exclusive to PvP gear.

Wrath 101: Level 70 PvP gear


If you were looking forward to getting gear upgrades through Honor at Level 70 when Wrath of the Lich King finally arrives in a few days, you probably shouldn't hold your breath. I know I advised doing a lot of PvP, but I meant that you should be keeping all that Honor for Level 80 rewards. Blizzard has stated that Season 3 rewards will not be available for Honor points, and that Brutal Gladiator items will retain their ratings requirement.

Zarhym explains that there are no plans to make Season 3 gear available through the Honor system because there will no longer be any new rewards for Arenas at Level 70. Since all Honor gear available through vendors are two seasons old, all current Level 70 rewards will remain as they are. In another post, Wryxian explained that the personal ratings requirements for Brutal Gladiator gear will also stay in place, pointing out that the gear will last well through the Northrend leveling experience. To that end, Blizzard intends for the gear to be "somewhat limited in availability."

Season 4 arena titles awarded incorrectly

The top arena teams of Season 4 have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of their rewards since the launch of patch 3.0.2, but things haven't turned out quite right. The Customer Service forum is full of reports of titles not being handed out correctly, and an ongoing Blizzard investigation into the matter. A little digging of our own (and a firsthand account from our Rogue guru Chase Christian) confirms that there's a problem, but obviously we don't know the cause.

In a lot of cases, the top (the tippy-top, the #1) team in a bracket is receiving the title of Duelist, when they should be getting Brutal Gladiator and their Netherdrake pets. Players with a rating of 2100 or higher are earning only the Challenger title in some cases, and I think it's very, very safe to say that those players would be in a bracket higher than just the top 35%. Season 4 is not exactly known for having a glut of people nearing the 2200 needed for shoulders.

Insider Trader: Armorsmiths vs. weaponsmiths

I received a question over the tip line from an armorsmith this morning who is considering switching to weaponsmith because he is dissatisfied with his profession.

Player regrets surrounding a chosen specialization, or even profession, are common and happen to almost everyone at one time or another.

JDT writes that he is "extremely disappointed" with armorsmithing and what he is able to make, and that one of his reasons for possibly switching to weaponsmithing is that he theorizes it would be helpful to be able to pass down weapons to his alts that cannot wear plate.

Unfortunately JDT, anything that you craft as either a weaponsmith or an armorsmith is not only bind on pick-up, but it also requires you to have that specialization in order to wield/wear it.

That being said, there are blacksmithing plans for weapons and armor floating around that are bind on equip and can be passed along, but those can be made by any blacksmith regardless of specialization.

This week I will begin comparing the various armorsmith and weaponsmith pieces to the first non-crafted upgrades in order to illustrate the value of each item and help each class and spec come to an informed decision when it comes time to choose blacksmithing specialties.

Next week I'll finish out the comparison, as there is more than I can fit into this week's edition!

Breakfast Topic: Class vs. content


Responding to a shared blogging topic over on Blog Azeroth, Aendi from the roleplaying blog Voodoo Ventures recently wrote an entry on how to choose a class. This is certainly a subject that's gotten a lot of play in the WoW community, but Aendi's is an unusually thoughtful look at the problem that results when a player's poured a lot of time and effort into a class that might be a bad choice given the player's goals in the endgame. In one of most succinct and painfully accurate points I've seen on the subject, Aendi asks -- is seeing endgame content so important to you that you're willing to play a class you enjoy less, or is the class you play so important that you're willing to sacrifice a possible shot at content?

It's no secret that classes and specs are not the same when it comes to the likelihood of getting Gladiator or raiding all the way to Kil'Jaeden. You may love your Hunter, but arena's not that kind to them at present. Your Warlock might be endless fun to play, but the guilds on your realm are probably swimming in them. And if you've ever cruised past the recruitment forums, you've probably noticed that they all seem to want the same thing: healers (and lots of 'em). If you were the sort of person who sat down, looked at the content in the game that you wanted to see more than anything else, and picked your class and spec solely with that goal in mind, your path forward would be fairly clear...but you might also become one of those people who logs off their primary toon as fast as they can after raid, or after their 10 games for the week, and goes to play the alt they'd secretly love to be playing as a main.

Ideally we get the perfect intersection of a class we love to play that's able to accomplish its goals in content we want to experience, but it doesn't always happen -- and if you have to choose, the decision is a pretty personal one. So I ask you: class or content?

Blood Sport: Arena-weary


It happens from time to time. Players get tired. Whether it's from raiding or PvP or just playing the game in general, there comes a low point where you just feel like taking a break. Right now, I'm just about tired of Arenas. This comes after a long wait for Season 4 to start. It just doesn't feel as fun anymore and even a little stale. Nothing significant has changed from the last Season, with the biggest -- if it can be called that -- class balance change coming in the form of a nerf to Cheat Death. Class representation hasn't changed, with Druids, Rogues, and Warriors still generally on top of the 2v2 and 3v3 food chain.

I write this knowing that two classes I play -- Paladin and Shaman -- are bottom-feeders in the 2000+ range in 2v2 and 3v3 brackets (along with, you guessed it, Hunters). That's fine. I know my classes' places in the hierarchy of Arena viability. Pro player Serennia's poor and embarrassing use of the Paladin at MLG Orlando only further exposed the problems of the class in the 3v3 format. That's the reality, and I've dealt with it for the past seasons. I concentrate on our 5v5 where those classes are more viable, get my points, get my gear, and that's that. But therein lies the problem -- that's that. Nothing more.

Blizzard updates armor sets page with Season 4


The World of Warcraft official armor sets page has been updated to feature the Season 4 or Brutal Gladiator pieces. Just as with past sets, you'll be able to review the armor pieces on each class and their respective races as well as view the stats for each item. Season 4 started on June 24, after a long 30 week wait since Season 3 began, finally opening the floodgates for Sunwell Plateau-level PvP gear. Check out WoW Insider's extensive Brutal Gladiator gear guide and comprehensive gallery for more detailed information on Season 4 gear.

2000 means nothing in Season 4


"2k rated <insert class here> looking for Arena team."

For once, that statement doesn't hold quite as much weight anymore. In Season 4, where new personal ratings requirements are in place, a 2000 rating doesn't amount to anything but bragging rights. Sometimes not even that. After two weeks of the new season, more than a few players are running around with their helm graphic on, proudly displaying the fact that they've hit the first benchmark of 1700 personal and team rating. An even more select few are standing around the major cities brandishing Brutal Gladiator armaments. This is where the new distinction lies.

With 2000 personal rating qualifying a player for nothing in Season 4, the more accurate statement for any sort of Arena self-validation is now "<insert class here> with S4 weapon looking for Arena team." Because the requirements are so strict -- necessitating both team and player ratings to be at the minimum upon purchase -- Arena gear has never been more indicative of skill. I know many of you will protest at this generalization, and you'd have a point. But now more than ever, the system has proven effective at weeding out the chaff from the grain.

Armory updated with Season 4 gear

The World of Warcraft Armory has just been updated with Season 4 Brutal Gladiator and Guardian -- or Honor-bought -- gear. This update comes hot on the heels of the new Arena season, which began last June 24. This probably isn't what Robin had in mind when she asked if the Armory needs more information, but it's a timely addition to Blizzard's extensive database and may help players plan out their gear.

For a more extensive overview of all the class armor sets, however, you can go check out WoW Insider's Season 4 gear guide.

Breakfast Topic: How's Season 4 going for you?

The first day of Season 4 has come and gone, and with it, I'm sure a lot of players spent a lot of time recovering from the switchover and beginning the climb to Gladiator rank for the end of Season 4. Arena players rushed out to buy new Season 4 gear -- at least the stuff that didn't need a high rating -- while many battleground regulars probably went to get their hands on the Season 2 gear for Honor points. I'm sure a lot of teams started play today if only to try to push up their rating and get more gear earlier.

If you're a little overwhelmed by all the Season 4 hubbub whipping around, let WoW Insider get you squared a way a bit better. You can check out our Season 4 Information roundup, chock full of useful articles that will help you get the most out of this season, or you can check our Season 4 brutal gladiator gear roundup for information on all the new stuff you can spend your Arena and Honor points on.

If you plunged right into the thick of things, how did you do? Did you fight enough Arena battles to get a set of bracers, or are you waiting for the teams to settle into proper brackets before you dive in? Did you just stick with buying some season 2 gear or a new belt with some saved up Honor points? Or, did you just sell armor patches and gem cuts to everyone looking to kit out their new gear? Let us know how the new season's treating you!

Brutal Gladiator's Raiment


The Brutal Gladiator's Raiment is the armor set for Shadow Priests. It is a satin, or cloth armor usable only by Priests and is usually matched with Guardian's Silk or Dreadweave armor pieces. The armor set can be purchased from Big Zokk Torquewrench in Netherstorm and Ontokk Shatterhorn in Shattrath City. The matching Guardian items may be purchased from Doris Volanthius in the Hall of Legends and Lieutenant Tristia in the Champion's Hall.

Brutal Gladiator's Satin Gloves
The Brutal Gladiator armor piece for the hands are the cheapest and easiest Season 4 Arena gear to obtain. With no personal rating requirements, most players will be able to purchase this piece and is the Arena gear likely to be most widespread as soon as the season begins. The bonus is the same for both Priest-specific sets, reducing the cooldown to Psychic Scream. The gloves have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
306 Armor (+13)
+55 Stamina (+7)
+27 Intellect (+5)
+25 Resilience (+0)
+41 Spell Damage / Healing (+6)
Reduces the cooldown of Psychic Scream by 3 secs.
Classes: Priest
WoW Insider says: These gloves are low-cost and have no rating requirements, making it the ideal purchase specially for starting Arena players. Shadow Priests, in particular, need the best gear possible in order to stay competitive in an Arena environment that tends to be harsh to their spec.


Brutal Gladiator's Satin Leggings
The leg armor possesses a personal rating requirement of 1550, which isn't too difficult to obtain, even for underrepresented Shadow Priests. While not as accessible as the gloves, the leg armor is highly visible on a character and is also likely to be a popular purchase, even at 1875 Arena points. The leggings have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
442 Armor (+18)
+82 Stamina (+9)
+39 Intellect (+7)
+34 Resilience (+0)
+66 Spell Damage / Healing (+9)
Classes: Priest
WoW Insider says: The lack of sockets mean that the only customization that can be done will be through Tailoring or Leatherworkingenchants. The Satin Leggings are loaded with Stamina and spell damage, which a Shadow Priest needs in abundance. The low barrier of entry makes it a perfect purchase for Season 4.


Brutal Gladiator's Satin Robe

With three sockets, the chestpiece is the most customizable Arena armor piece, and is the next best purchase after the gloves. 1600 might be a more prohibitive target for beginning Shadow Priests, who have had a tough time in Arenas in the past. In PvE, the chest armor is traditionally a drop from the final boss in a series (Magtheridon drops Tier 4 chest token, Kael'thas drops Tier 5 chest token, Illidan drops Tier 6 chest token, etc.). Arenas are different in this regard, but the item level of the chest is identical to PvE chest pieces. Sunwell Plateau breaks from tradition in that the final boss, Kil'jaeden, does not drop chest tokens or armor. However, the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is equivalent to the drops from Entropius and is the best combination of cost and restriction among all the armor pieces. The robe has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
476 Armor (+22)
+72 Stamina (+9)
+34 Intellect (+7)
+31 Resilience (+0)
+49 Spell Damage / Healing (+7)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Priest
WoW Insider says: If only for the sockets, the Satin Robe is the best Brutal Gladiator armor purchase outside of the gloves. The 1600 personal rating isn't extremely difficult to attain, and gives a sense of achievement specially to Shadow Priests, who need to be more populous in Arenas. Because of its PvE equivalent, obtaining the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is almost like killing Entropius in Sunwell Plateau. Well, ok not really, but if you don't raid, that's about as close to a raid drop as you're going to get.


Brutal Gladiator's Satin Hood
The helm is very likely the last Brutal Gladiator armor piece that many players will obtain. With the shoulders at an extremely prohibitive 2200, most players will only manage 4/5 of Season 4. Starting Shadow Priests might find 1700 a more lofty target for the head piece, which costs the same Arena points as the chest and leg armor pieces. With a personal rating attached to it, the Brutal Gladiator helm might be one helm graphic that players would like to leave on. It is also identical in model to the pieces that drop off Kil'jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. The hood has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
426 Armor (+17)
+79 Stamina (+6)
+28 Intellect (+7)
+32 Resilience (+0)
+50 Spell Damage / Healing (+8)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Priest
WoW Insider says: Unfortunately, the Satin Hood is inferior in every way to the equivalent Warlock's Dreadweave Hood. Considering the same Arena point cost and personal Arena ratings, Shadow Priests get the short end of the stick for an equivalent item.


Brutal Gladiator's Satin Mantle

The 2200 personal ratings requirement for the shoulders are almost Gladiator-level for most Battlegroups, and will likely be a very rare sight in most realms. It will be much more rare to see it on a Shadow Priest. Although it is the cheapest item after the gloves, it is also the most difficult to get. Blizzard's reasoning for this is that the shoulders are the most "visually impacting" armor piece, confirming Blizzard's opinion that PvP achievements should be on display. The mantle has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
339 Armor (+16)
+56 Stamina (+7)
+27 Intellect (+5)
+23 Resilience (+0)
+37 Spell Damage / Healing (+5)

Socket Bonus: +3 Resilience Rating
Classes: Priest
WoW Insider says: Brutal Gladiator Shoulders are peacock gear. This holds true even for the Shadow Priest's shoulders which aren't a marked improvement over the previous season's shoulders.

Brutal Gladiator's Wildhide


The Brutal Gladiator's Wildhide is the armor set for Balance Druids. It is a wyrmhide, or leather armor usable only by Druids and is usually matched with Guardian's Wyrmhide armor pieces. The armor set can be purchased from Big Zokk Torquewrench in Netherstorm and Ontokk Shatterhorn in Shattrath City. The matching Guardian items may be purchased from Doris Volanthius in the Hall of Legends and Lieutenant Tristia in the Champion's Hall.

Brutal Gladiator's Wyrmhide Gloves
The Brutal Gladiator armor piece for the hands are the cheapest and easiest Season 4 Arena gear to obtain. With no personal rating requirements, most players will be able to purchase this piece and is the Arena gear likely to be most widespread as soon as the season begins. The PvP-oriented bonus of Cyclone cast time reduction is the same for the Brutal Gladiator's Kodohide Gloves. The gloves have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
354 Armor (+25)
+47 Stamina (+4)
+28 Intellect (+4)
+16 Spell Critical (+4)
+22 Resilience (+0)
+49 Spell Damage / Healing (+6)
6 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Reduces the cast time of Cyclone by .1 secs.
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: These gloves are low-cost and have no rating requirements, and the high Stamina and good +Healing make it making it one of the best Season 4 purchases, specially for starting Arena players.


Brutal Gladiator's Wyrmhide Legguards
The leg armor possesses a personal rating requirement of 1550, which isn't too difficult to obtain, even for Moonkin Druids. While not as accessible as the gloves, the leg armor is highly visible on a character and is also likely to be a popular purchase, even at 1875 Arena points. The legguards have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
492 Armor (+35)
+65 Stamina (+7)
+40 Intellect (+5)
+27 Spell Critical (+5)
+31 Resilience (+0)
+67 Spell Damage / Healing (+5)
11 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: The lack of sockets mean that the only customization that can be done will be through Tailoring or Leatherworkingenchants. Even then, the low ratings requirement for these legguards make it very appealing for all the stats it gives, including a 1.72% spell crit from the +Intellect and +Spell Crit Rating.


Brutal Gladiator's Wyrmhide Tunic

With three sockets, the chestpiece is the most customizable Arena armor piece, and is the next best purchase after the gloves. In PvE, the chest armor is traditionally a drop from the final boss in a series (Magtheridon drops Tier 4 chest token, Kael'thas drops Tier 5 chest token, Illidan drops Tier 6 chest token, etc.). Arenas are different in this regard, but the item level of the chest is identical to PvE chest pieces. Sunwell Plateau breaks from tradition in that the final boss, Kil'jaeden, does not drop chest tokens or armor. However, the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is equivalent in item level to the drops from Entropius and is the best combination of cost and restriction among all the armor pieces. The tunic has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
541 Armor (+40)
+62 Stamina (+7)
+33 Intellect (+5)
+18 Spell Critical (+5)
+27 Resilience (+0)
+59 Spell Damage / Healing (+6)
7 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: Although 1600 personal rating might be restrictive to some beginning Moonkin Druids, the chest piece is worth the grind because it's a decent upgrade over its Season 3 counterpart. Because of its PvE equivalent, obtaining the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is almost like killing Entropius in Sunwell Plateau. Well, ok not really, but if you don't raid, that's about as close to a raid drop as you're going to get.


Brutal Gladiator's Wyrmhide Helm
The helm is very likely the last Brutal Gladiator armor piece that many players will obtain. With the shoulders at an extremely prohibitive 2200, most players will only manage 4/5 of Season 4. Moonkin Druids, although not very popular in Arenas, can manage 1700 for this helm, which costs the same as the chest and leg armor pieces. With a personal rating attached to it, the Brutal Gladiator helm might be one helm graphic that players would like to leave on. It is also identical in model to the pieces that drop off Kil'jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. The helm has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
447 Armor (+32)
+65 Stamina (+7)
+35 Intellect (+6)
+22 Spell Critical
+28 Resilience (+0)
+59 Spell Damage / Healing (+13 / +5)
8 Mana / 5 Secs (+3 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: The spell crit on this helm isn't quite as good as on the legguards, but Meta and Yellow Sockets give enough options for customization to make it a worthy purchase.


Brutal Gladiator's Wyrmhide Spaulders

The 2200 personal ratings requirement for the shoulders are almost Gladiator-level for most Battlegroups, and will likely be a very rare sight in most realms. It's not certain we'll see many Moonkin Druids sport these. It is the cheapest item after the gloves, but it is also the most difficult to get. Blizzard's reasoning for this is that the shoulders are the most "visually impacting" armor piece, confirming Blizzard's opinion that PvP achievements should be on display. The spaulders has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
416 Armor (+30)
+49 Stamina (+6)
+24 Intellect (+4)
+13 Spell Critical (+8)
+22 Resilience (+0)
+41 Spell Damage / Healing (+5)
5 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +3 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: Brutal Gladiator Shoulders are peacock gear. The stats for the Wyrmhide shoulders are so minimal to even warrant a 2200 personal ratings tag outside of showing off.
Guardian's Wyrmhide Belt
Because it is a visual match for the Brutal Gladiator's Wildhide, and because it comes with no personal ratings requirement, the belt is most likely to be the most widely distributed Season 4 gear. It is purchasable with Honor points, so even players who do not participate in Arena PvP can obtain it. The belt has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
322 Armor (+22)
+49 Stamina (+6)
+35 Intellect (+5)
+26 Resilience (+0)
+44 Spell Damage / Healing (+4)
11 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: Even though it has no spell crit, this belt has a low Honor cost and is ratings-free. It's a must have item for all aspiring Moonkins, definitely the best Season 4 purchase even for players who have no intention of stepping into Arenas.


Guardian's Wyrmhide Bracers
The only other Guardian piece with a socket is the amulet, which doesn't have a personal rating requirement. Coupled with the fact that bracers are visually insignificant, being hidden under gloves or robes, most players feel that there's little urgency to get them. A 1575 personal ratings requirement also requires decent performance in Arenas. The bracers have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
253 (+17)
+35 Stamina (+4)
+23 Intellect (+3)
+18 Resilience (+0)
+27 Spell Damage / Healing (+4)
8 Mana / 5 Secs (+1 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +2 Resilience Rating
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: The great thing about these bracers are the Red Socket as opposed to the typical Yellow Socket for bracers, although the upgrade from last season's version is very moderate. If a Moonkin can manage 1575 and spare the dirt cheap 11,794 Honor, why not?


Guardian's Wyrmhide Boots

The most visually important match of all Guardian items -- although it won't be seen on Tauren feet, the boots are a big jump from a 1575 personal ratings requirement and is as demanding to get as the head piece at 1700 personal ratings. It is also as expensive to purchase as the belt, which has no ratings requirement. The slippers have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
385 Armor (+28)
+49 Stamina (+6)
+35 Intellect (+5)
+26 Resilience (+0)
+44 Spell Damage / Healing(+4)
11 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: 1700 is the highest personal ratings requirement outside of the weapons and shoulders, and might be a challenge for Moonkins only starting to do Arenas. A decent item, to be sure, but players looking for more spell crit for more burst should look at better raid drops if they can manage it.

Brutal Gladiator's Refuge


The Brutal Gladiator's Refuge is the armor set for Restoration Druids. It is a kodohide, or leather armor usable only by Druids and is usually matched with Guardian's Kodohide armor pieces. The armor set can be purchased from Big Zokk Torquewrench in Netherstorm and Ontokk Shatterhorn in Shattrath City. The matching Guardian items may be purchased from Doris Volanthius in the Hall of Legends and Lieutenant Tristia in the Champion's Hall.

Brutal Gladiator's Kodohide Gloves
The Brutal Gladiator armor piece for the hands are the cheapest and easiest Season 4 Arena gear to obtain. With no personal rating requirements, most players will be able to purchase this piece and is the Arena gear likely to be most widespread as soon as the season begins. The PvP-oriented bonus of Cyclone cast time reduction is the same for the Brutal Gladiator's Wyrmhide Gloves. The gloves have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
354 Armor (+25)
+49 Stamina (+6)
+39 Intellect (+5)
+21 Resilience (+0)
+88 Healing / +30 Spell Damage (+9 / +3)
10 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Reduces the cast time of Cyclone by .1 secs.
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: These gloves are low-cost and have no rating requirements, and the high Stamina and good +Healing make it making it one of the best Season 4 purchases, specially for starting Arena players.


Brutal Gladiator's Kodohide Legguards
The leg armor possesses a personal rating requirement of 1550, which isn't too difficult to obtain, particularly for Restoration Druids. While not as accessible as the gloves, the leg armor is highly visible on a character and is also likely to be a popular purchase, even at 1875 Arena points. The leggings have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
478 Armor (+35)
+65 Stamina (+7)
+50 Intellect (+6)
+31 Resilience (+0)
+114 Healing / +38 Spell Damage (+13 / +4)
16 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: The lack of sockets mean that the only customization that can be done will be through Tailoring or Leatherworking enchants. The leggings are an excellent Brutal Gladiator piece, with over 100 +Healing and massive mp5 as an added bonus.


Brutal Gladiator's Kodohide Tunic

With three sockets, the chestpiece is the most customizable Arena armor piece, and is the next best purchase after the gloves. Furthermore, 1600 should be relatively easy for Restoration Druids, who do extremely well in 2v2 and 3v3. In PvE, the chest armor is traditionally a drop from the final boss in a series (Magtheridon drops Tier 4 chest token, Kael'thas drops Tier 5 chest token, Illidan drops Tier 6 chest token, etc.). Arenas are different in this regard, but the item level of the chest is identical to PvE chest pieces. Sunwell Plateau breaks from tradition in that the final boss, Kil'jaeden, does not drop chest tokens or armor. However, the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is equivalent to the drops from Entropius and is the best combination of cost and restriction among all the armor pieces. The tunic has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
541 Armor (+40)
+69 Stamina (+14)
+40 Intellect (+5)
+27 Resilience (+0)
+101 Healing / +34 Spell Damage (+13 / +4)
11 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: With +Healing that actually breaks the 100 mark without the benefit of sockets, this chest piece is easily one of the best purchases for healing Druids in Season 4. The additional Red Sockets can be used to pump up that healing even further, not to mention that it's a whopping +14 Stamina over its predecessor. Because of its PvE equivalent, obtaining the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is almost like killing Entropius in Sunwell Plateau. Well, ok not really, but if you don't raid, that's about as close to a raid drop as you're going to get.


Brutal Gladiator's Kodohide Helm
The helm is very likely the last Brutal Gladiator armor piece that many players will obtain. With the shoulders at an extremely prohibitive 2200, most players will only manage 4/5 of Season 4. Restoration Druids should conceivably have no trouble getting to 1700 for this helm, which costs the same as the chest and leg armor pieces. With a personal rating attached to it, the Brutal Gladiator helm might be one helm graphic that players would like to leave on. It is also identical in model to the pieces that drop off Kil'jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. The helm has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
447 Armor (+32)
+65 Stamina (+7)
+45 Intellect (+6)
+29 Resilience (+0)
+103 Healing / +35 Spell Damage (+13 / +5)
11 Mana / 5 Secs (+3 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: Over +100 Healing on a single armor piece is a great purchase for healers, no matter how you look at it. Coupled with 11mp5, this Kodohide Helm is works well for PvE if you don't raid the endgame.


Brutal Gladiator's Kodohide Spaulders

The 2200 personal ratings requirement for the shoulders are almost Gladiator-level for most Battlegroups, and will likely be a very rare sight in most realms. It is quite likely that more than a few Restoration Druids will be sporting these through the season, however. It is the cheapest item after the gloves, but it is also the most difficult to get. Blizzard's reasoning for this is that the shoulders are the most "visually impacting" armor piece, confirming Blizzard's opinion that PvP achievements should be on display. The spaulders have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
430 Armor (+30)
+49 Stamina (+6)
+29 Intellect (+5)
+20 Resilience (+0)
+66 Healing / +22 Spell Damage (+9 / +3)
7 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +3 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: Brutal Gladiator Shoulders are peacock gear. While it has the rare mp5 for shoulders, it is stat-wise a very modest upgrade from the previous season's shoulder piece which is a full 250 ratings easier to obtain. Fortunately, more than a few skilled Resto Druids will be able to obtain these.
Guardian's Kodohide Belt
Because it is a visual match for the Brutal Gladiator's Refuge, and because it comes with no personal ratings requirement, the belt is most likely to be the most widely distributed Season 4 gear. It is purchasable with Honor points, so even players who do not participate in Arena PvP can obtain it. The belt has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
322 Armor (+22)
+49 Stamina (+6)
+35 Intellect (+5)
+26 Resilience (+0)
+84 Healing / +28 Spell Damage (+9 / +3)
11 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: The belt has a low Honor cost and is ratings-free. It's not even a question. Even outside of PvP, this belt trumps most PvE healing belts outside of Sunwell Plateau, comparable to the Belt of Primal Majesty from Gurtogg Bloodboil in the Black Temple where haste takes the place of this belt's mp5. It's the best belt that casual players can get for this spec.


Guardian's Kodohide Bracers
The only other Guardian piece with a socket is the amulet, which doesn't have a personal rating requirement. Coupled with the fact that bracers are visually insignificant, being hidden under gloves or robes, most players feel that there's little urgency to get them. A 1575 personal ratings requirement also requires decent performance in Arenas. The bracers have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
253 (+17)
+43 Stamina (+14)
+25 Intellect (+3)
+18 Resilience (+0)
+46 Healing / +16 Spell Damage (+6 / +2)
8 Mana / 5 Secs (+1 / 5)

Socket Bonus: +2 Resilience Rating
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: The mediocre +Healing makes this piece less viable for PvE than other pieces, but possesses a Red Socket as opposed to the typical Yellow Socket for bracers. It also has a massive +14 Stamina upgrade from the Vindicator version. Definitely worth the purchase if only for the Red Socket and mp5.


Guardian's Kodohide Boots

The most visually important match of all Guardian items -- although it won't be seen on Tauren feet, the boots are a big jump from a 1575 personal ratings requirement and is as demanding to get as the head piece at 1700 personal ratings. It is also as expensive to purchase as the belt, which has no ratings requirement. The slippers have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
385 Armor (+28)
+49 Stamina (+6)
+35 Intellect (+5)
+26 Resilience (+0)
+84 Healing / +28 Spell Damage (+9 / +3)
11 Mana / 5 Secs (+2 / 5)
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: Although 1700 is the highest personal ratings requirement outside of the weapons and shoulders, the boots are among the best healing boots before Sunwell Plateau gear. It is comparable to the Enchanted Leather Sandals from Kaz'rogal in Hyjal Summit and is a good option for those unable to raid the endgame.

Brutal Gladiator's Dreadgear


The Brutal Gladiator's Dreadgear is the armor set for Affliction and Demonoloy-specced Warlocks. It is a dreadweave, or cloth armor usable only by Warlocks and is usually matched with Guardian's Dreadweave armor pieces. The armor set can be purchased from Big Zokk Torquewrench in Netherstorm and Ontokk Shatterhorn in Shattrath City. The matching Guardian items may be purchased from Doris Volanthius in the Hall of Legends and Lieutenant Tristia in the Champion's Hall.

Brutal Gladiator's Dreadweave Gloves
The Brutal Gladiator armor piece for the hands are the cheapest and easiest Season 4 Arena gear to obtain. With no personal rating requirements, most players will be able to purchase this piece and is the Arena gear likely to be most widespread as soon as the season begins. The bonus is the same for both Warlock-specific sets, giving a bonus against spell interruption when casting Fear. The gloves have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
306 Armor (+13)
+58 Stamina (+7)
+33 Intellect (+5)
+21 Resilience (+0)
+47 Spell Damage / Healing (+6)
Gives 50% chance to avoid interruption caused by damage while casting Fear.
Classes: Warlock
WoW Insider says: These gloves are low-cost and have no rating requirements, making it a good purchase specially for starting Arena players. These gloves have higher +Stamina than the Felweave Handguards at the expense of +Spell Crit.


Brutal Gladiator's Dreadweave Leggings
The leg armor possesses a personal rating requirement of 1550, which isn't too difficult to obtain. Warlocks, specially in the popular SL/SL build, can outlast their way to that rating. While not as accessible as the gloves, the leg armor is highly visible on a character and is also likely to be a popular purchase, even at 1875 Arena points. The leggings have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
442 Armor (+18)
+85 Stamina (+9)
+39 Intellect (+7)
+33 Resilience (+0)
+67 Spell Damage / Healing (+8)
Classes: Warlock
WoW Insider says: The lack of sockets mean that the only customization that can be done will be through Tailoring or Leatherworking enchants. As with past Dreadweave items, the leg armor is loaded with Stamina, even higher than that of Warrior Battlegear. A good purchase even in comparison to the chest piece, which costs the same Arena points.


Brutal Gladiator's Dreadweave Robe

With three sockets, the chestpiece is the most customizable Arena armor piece, and is the next best purchase after the gloves. 1600 should be a relatively achievable goal for Warlocks, who are popular in many Arena formats. In PvE, the chest armor is traditionally a drop from the final boss in a series (Magtheridon drops Tier 4 chest token, Kael'thas drops Tier 5 chest token, Illidan drops Tier 6 chest token, etc.). Arenas are different in this regard, but the item level of the chest is identical to PvE chest pieces. Sunwell Plateau breaks from tradition in that the final boss, Kil'jaeden, does not drop chest tokens or armor. However, the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is equivalent to the drops from Entropius and is the best combination of cost and restriction among all the armor pieces. The robe has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
476 Armor (+22)
+84 Stamina (+9)
+28 Intellect (+7)
+24 Resilience (+0)
+57 Spell Damage / Healing (+7)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Warlock
WoW Insider says: Because of the sockets and massive Stamina which gives close to 1k Health, the chest piece is the best Brutal Gladiator armor purchase for most Warlocks. Because of its PvE equivalent, obtaining the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is almost like killing Entropius in Sunwell Plateau. Well, ok not really, but if you don't raid, that's about as close to a raid drop as you're going to get.


Brutal Gladiator's Dreadweave Hood
The helm is very likely the last Brutal Gladiator armor piece that many players will obtain. With the shoulders at an extremely prohibitive 2200, most players will only manage 4/5 of Season 4. Warlocks should conceivably have an easier time obtaining a 1700 personal rating to get this hood, which costs the same as the chest and leg armor pieces. With a personal rating attached to it, the Brutal Gladiator helm might be one helm graphic that players would like to leave on. It is also identical in model to the pieces that drop off Kil'jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. The hood has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
426 Armor (+17)
+82 Stamina (+9)
+32 Intellect (+7)
+33 Resilience (+0)
+50 Spell Damage / Healing (+8)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Warlock
WoW Insider says: Clearly intended for survivability, the Dreadweave Hood even at 1700 personal rating, is a good target. +82 Stamina from a single item is substantial, even if it doesn't have the fancy demon wings.


Brutal Gladiator's Dreadweave Mantle

The 2200 personal ratings requirement for the shoulders are almost Gladiator-level for most Battlegroups, and will likely be a very rare sight in most realms. Although it is the cheapest item after the gloves, it is also the most difficult to get. Blizzard's reasoning for this is that the shoulders are the most "visually impacting" armor piece, confirming Blizzard's opinion that PvP achievements should be on display. The mantle has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
339 Armor (+16)
+55 Stamina (+6)
+18 Intellect (+5)
+21 Resilience (+0)
+20 Spell Hit (+4)
+44 Spell Damage / Healing (+4)

Socket Bonus: +3 Resilience Rating
Classes: Warlock
WoW Insider says: Brutal Gladiator Shoulders are peacock gear. The Dreadweave Mantle has a low point-for-point improvement from its predecessor and it also uncharacteristically doesn't have higher Stamina than an equivalent Warrior piece. However, it is the only Dreadweave item with +Spell Hit and among the few PvP shoulders to have a Blue Socket.

Guardian's Dreadweave Belt
Because it is a visual match for the Brutal Gladiator's Dreadgear, and because it comes with no personal ratings requirement, the belt is most likely to be the most widely distributed Season 4 gear. It is purchasable with Honor points, so even players who do not participate in Arena PvP can obtain it. The belt has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
219 Armor (+11)
+56 Stamina (+7)
+37 Intellect (+5)
+31 Resilience (+0)
+47 Spell Damage / Healing (+6)
Classes: Priest, Mage, Warlock
WoW Insider says: Usable by all cloth-wearing classes, the Guardian's Dreadweave Belt might be one of the most popular Season 4 pieces. It has substantial +Stamina for a cloth item and has no personal ratings requirement, making it a great PvP starter purchase.


Guardian's Dreadweave Cuffs
The only other Guardian piece with a socket is the amulet, which doesn't have a personal rating requirement. Coupled with the fact that bracers are visually insignificant, being hidden under gloves or robes, there's little urgency to get them. A 1575 personal ratings requirement also requires decent performance in Arenas. The cuffs have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
183 (+10)
+38 Stamina (+4)
+24 Intellect (+4)
+17 Resilience (+0)
+34 Spell Damage / Healing (+5)

Socket Bonus: +2 Spell Damage
Classes: Priest, Mage, Warlock
WoW Insider says: Although there are better purchases in Season 4, the Dreadweave Cuffs are the only pure +Spell Damage cloth bracers for all cloth wearers and is a good option for players who have no need for +Spell Crit.


Guardian's Dreadweave Stalkers
The most visually important match of all Guardian items, the boots are a big jump from a 1575 personal ratings requirement and is as demanding to get as the head piece at 1700 personal ratings. It is also as expensive to purchase as the belt, which has no ratings requirement. The stalkers have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
253 Armor (+15)
+56 Stamina (+7)
+37 Intellect (+5)
+31 Resilience (+0)
+47 Spell Damage / Healing (+6)
Classes: Priest, Mage, Warlock
WoW Insider says: These cloth boots have as much +Stamina as the Season 4 Warrior Plate, and stamina is always good. Although the visual impact of these boots is irrelevant considering most cloth classes wear robes that cover it, it is the best choice for pure spell damage boots this season.

Brutal Gladiator's Sanctuary


The Brutal Gladiator's Sanctuary is the armor set for Feral Druids. It is a dragonhide, or leather armor usable only by Druids and is usually matched with Guardian's Dragonhide armor pieces. The armor set can be purchased from Big Zokk Torquewrench in Netherstorm and Ontokk Shatterhorn in Shattrath City. The matching Guardian items may be purchased from Doris Volanthius in the Hall of Legends and Lieutenant Tristia in the Champion's Hall.

Brutal Gladiator's Dragonhide Gloves
The Brutal Gladiator armor piece for the hands are the cheapest and easiest Season 4 Arena gear to obtain. With no personal rating requirements, most players will be able to purchase this piece and is the Arena gear likely to be most widespread as soon as the season begins. The glove bonus to Maim is one of the best of all PvP gloves. The gloves have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
368 Armor (+25)
+35 Strength (+4)
+36 Agility (+4)
+48 Stamina (+4)
+25 Intellect (+4)
+13 Hit (+4)
+22 Resilience (+0)
Causes Maim to interrupt spellcasting and prevent any spell from that school from being cast for 3 secs.
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: Although Feral Druids have traditionally been underrepresented in Arenas, these gloves should be freebies. Incidentally, many Feral Druids also find these gloves excellent for tanking. The armor is higher than the Kodohide or Wyrmhide gloves, but relatively low compared to PvE gloves. Some Druids find that the Resilience and +Hit more than make up for it.


Brutal Gladiator's Dragonhide Legguards
The leg armor possesses a personal rating requirement of 1550, which isn't too difficult to obtain, even for Feral Druids. While not as accessible as the gloves, the leg armor is highly visible on a character and is also likely to be a popular purchase, even at 1875 Arena points. The legguards have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
478 Armor (+35)
+40 Strength (+4)
+41 Agility (+4)
+61 Stamina (+6)
+34 Intellect (+4)
+17 Hit (+5)
+18 Critical Strike (+5)
+29 Resilience (+0)
84 Armor Penetration (+0)
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: The lack of sockets mean that the only customization that can be done will be through Tailoring or Leatherworking enchants. Hit rating, armor penetration, and other good stats make this leg armor almost as good a purchase as the chest piece.


Brutal Gladiator's Dragonhide Tunic

With three sockets, the chestpiece is the most customizable Arena armor piece, and is the next best purchase after the gloves. In PvE, the chest armor is traditionally a drop from the final boss in a series (Magtheridon drops Tier 4 chest token, Kael'thas drops Tier 5 chest token, Illidan drops Tier 6 chest token, etc.). Arenas are different in this regard, but the item level of the chest is identical to PvE chest pieces. Sunwell Plateau breaks from tradition in that the final boss, Kil'jaeden, does not drop chest tokens or armor. However, the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is equivalent to the drops from Entropius and is the best combination of cost and restriction among all the armor pieces. The tunic has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
569 Armor (+40)
+34 Strength (+4)
+36 Agility (+5)
+61 Stamina (+7)
+26 Intellect (+4)
+16 Hit (+4)
+23 Critical Strike (4)
+26 Resilience (+0)
84 Armor Penetration (+0)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: The best Brutal Gladiator purchase outside of the gloves, some Druids will use this to tank even in raids, as some Druids will take Resilience to compensate for the reduced armor. Because of its PvE equivalent, obtaining the Brutal Gladiator chest armor is almost like killing Entropius in Sunwell Plateau. Well, ok not really, but if you don't raid, that's about as close to a raid drop as you're going to get.


Brutal Gladiator's Dragonhide Helm
The helm is very likely the last Brutal Gladiator armor piece that many players will obtain. With the shoulders at an extremely prohibitive 2200, most players will only manage 4/5 of Season 4. Feral Druids can conceivably achieve 1700 for this helm, which costs the same as the chest and leg armor pieces. With a personal rating attached to it, the Brutal Gladiator helm might be one helm graphic that players would like to leave on. It is also identical in model to the pieces that drop off Kil'jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. The helm has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
461 Armor (+32)
+36 Strength (+4)
+35 Agility (+4)
+64 Stamina (+7)
+28 Intellect (+5)
+17 Hit (+5)
+31 Critical Strike (+4)
+25 Resilience (+0)
84 Armor Penetration (+0)

Socket Bonus: +4 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: More than most PvP pieces, the Dragonhide set works very well for PvE, and many Druids can make use of the helm, particularly for DPS. It's one of the best cat DPS helmets in the game, so Feral Druids would do well to strive for the 1700 personal rating.


Brutal Gladiator's Dragonhide Spaulders

The 2200 personal ratings requirement for the shoulders are almost Gladiator-level for most Battlegroups, and will likely be a very rare sight in most realms. It's uncertain how many Feral Druids will be able to achieve that rating in Season 4. It is the cheapest item after the gloves, but it is also the most difficult to get. Blizzard's reasoning for this is that the shoulders are the most "visually impacting" armor piece, confirming Blizzard's opinion that PvP achievements should be on display. The spaulders have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
430 Armor (+30)
+34 Strength (+4)
+34 Agility (+4)
+47 Stamina (+4)
+20 Intellect (+4)
+21 Critical Strike (+4)
+21 Resilience (+0)

Socket Bonus: +3 Resilience Rating
Classes: Druid
WoW Insider says: Brutal Gladiator Shoulders are peacock gear. Considering that most players who will obtain these items will be Restoration Druids who have Arena points to spare, it's not even worth considering.
Guardian's Dragonhide Belt
Because it is a visual match for the Brutal Gladiator's Sanctuary, and because it comes with no personal ratings requirement, the belt is most likely to be the most widely distributed Season 4 gear. It is purchasable with Honor points, so even players who do not participate in Arena PvP can obtain it. The belt has the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
322 Armor (+22)
+34 Strength (+4)
+33 Agility (+3)
+46 Stamina (+4)
+24 Intellect (+4)
+25 Critical Strike (+4)
+26 Resilience (+0)
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: With the low Honor cost and no personal ratings restriction, this belt should be among the most widespread Feral gear come Season 4. It's a no-brainer purchase once you have the Honor for it.


Guardian's Dragonhide Bracers
The only other Guardian piece with a socket is the amulet, which doesn't have a personal rating requirement. Coupled with the fact that bracers are visually insignificant, being hidden under gloves or robes, most players feel that there's little urgency to get them. A 1575 personal ratings requirement also requires decent performance in Arenas. The bracers have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
253 (+17)
+25 Stength (+3)
+25 Agility (+3)
+33 Stamina (+4)
+24 Critical Strike (+3)
+18 Resilience (+0)

Socket Bonus: +2 Resilience Rating
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: The best bracers most Druids will get outside of Sunwell Plateau, it is also an excellent choice for Rogues. The higher armor, resilience, and crit coupled with a Red Socket make up for losses in attack power, agility, and stamina. Probably the best Guardian bracers available due to the versatility.


Guardian's Dragonhide Boots

The most visually important match of all Guardian items -- although it won't be seen on Tauren feet, the boots are a big jump from a 1575 personal ratings requirement and is as demanding to get as the head piece at 1700 personal ratings. It is also as expensive to purchase as the belt, which has no ratings requirement. The slippers have the following stats (number in parentheses are the improvements over its Season 3 equivalent):
385 Armor (+28)
+34 Strength (+4)
+33 Agility (+4)
+46 Stamina (+4)
+24 Intellect (+4)
+25 Critical Strike (+4)
+26 Resilience (+0)
Classes: Rogue, Druid
WoW Insider says: Although 1700 is the highest personal ratings requirement outside of the weapons and shoulders, these boots are also good for tanking, making its usefulness extend outside of Arenas. Definitely a good purchase if you can manage the ratings.
