    Exclamation Battlegrounds PvP gear

    Dear All,

    im looking at grinding a lot of honour to get ranks and upgrades for my teams later.

    However do I need to be concerned rolling my teams into places like AV?

    Is there anyone doing heavy farming of bg’s in mass public areas and no issues?

    This is more of a risk Assessment!

    just like on retail, if you can prove yourself useful without follow there shouldn't be any problems. The shaman 4 warrior team does fine in av but i place myself mid and farm kills with IWT only. I dont play offense/defense due to the lack of multipassenger mounts and tbh, most of the time horde wins anyway before the afk debuff would remove you.

    On a side note, I've experienced less hostility in classic battlegrounds than back in the follow-working-days on retails, despite being way less useful here. Most conversations I have are either how much time I spent on arena runs or wether I am that shaman from wotlk.

    If you just world PVP you should be fine. I run a 10 man MMMMP x 2. Recently hit rank 8 just from doing pvp an hour or two a night. If you went to silithus and BRM you'll find more than enough honor to get you to 10 quickly.

    im struggling with gearing the shaman as i run a 5x shaman compilation and limits my access to gear, i am not 60 yet as this is a new team on a new server.

    However, how do we address this without a multi mount? i am hugely limited to dungeons since follow went.

    Ideas?

    I dont really want to bin off a shaman for a tank

    How many kills per week do you think will get me to what rank?

    I am struggling to see if i can get out of green gear and if its going to take me weeks or months.

    I'm compiling a list of gear (and taking my sweet time doing it too) that weighs effort spent / value gained of pieces with elemental shamans in mind. Stuff like t2.5 should be the end goal, but you would have to be an absolute mad lad to raid AQ 5x a week.

    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=218...elemental-fury - Helmet
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=206...mail-legguards - of sorcery - Pants
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=206...-mail-sabatons - of sorcery - Boots
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=206...al-mail-clutch - of sorcery - Waist
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=206...ail-handguards - of sorcery - Gloves
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=218...t-kris-of-zedd - Weapon

    I'd also start solo pugging ZG as a resto shaman - no one really needs the ZG pieces / heart of hakkar anymore

    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=198...augurs-bracers - Bracers
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=198...augurs-hauberk - Chest
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=198...ar-augurs-belt - Belt
    https://classic.wowhead.com/item=199...ian-hero-charm - Trinket

    Also, the rare caster gear from ZG is solid.

    All these pieces are the low hanging fruit of "good" gear. I need to put some more thought into this, though.

    Edit: In reference to your "risk assessment", I got a temp week ban for AFKing AV to exalted 5x at once when it first came out. This was before you could group queue so they were all in different BGs. If you're gonna play AV - make sure to play. You will get spam reported. My ban was immediately overturned without any input from me, but honestly, I should have had to deal with it. No idea why blizz flipped it.

    Thanks for the time you put into replying and the gear links, a huge food for thought. I will consider my options knowingly this is going to be a task.

    ive been doing this since and I’m rank 4 already, this is what I will have to do for now.

    is there no way I can enter bg’s like basin or wsg and just fight in the open lol? not sure if it would mould well with everyone else being crippled and less effective without mobility.

    world PvP is ok but I do at times struggle to find players at my level.
