You are a Fury Warrior with Titan’s Grip and you are not sure how you should gear your toon for PVP. You want to have x2 2Hs.  You want to dual-wield the Greatsword.

So you were like me, looked all over the internet and found nothing.  You decide to ask your old Alliance friend from your first server who switched to Horde and currently PVPs, how do I gear my Fury Warrior.  You explain to him the whole reason why you rolled Warrior, you want to Transmog Armageddon x2, you figured PVP would be the easiest way to obtain x2 2H swords. You tell him your dilemmas(see below):

Dilemma one.

You don’t have Armageddon to transmog.

You need to run Naxxramas 25 weekly.

Dilemma two.

You need swords.

You need 7500 Honor before you purchase the aforementioned Greatsword.

Dilemma three.

You need to farm Honor quickly and efficiently.  You ask trade and receive a logical response.

Convert any extra Justice Points to Honor > Tol Barad(do the weekly quest) > Wintergrasp(do the weekly quests, destroy towers to speed up the process) > if possible solo Vault of Archavon 25 man > Alterac Valley or Isle of Conquest and/or Daily BG (depending if you are good or have a guild)

WoW 5.4.8: How To Get PvP Geared Fast and Fastest…: http://youtu.be/DAqmTxkpujI

Optional
Do the Grizzly Hill Dailies and the Thunder Isle Dailies for about 800 Honor.

Obtaining gear from Celestial and Ordos – Weekly
First go back to Timeless Isle before you queue cross realm raid finder. Queue and make sure you hit the world boss for a chance at free 550 PVP Gear. If you queue before you are at the boss they might kill it before you get there.

Dilemma four.

You need to know your gear priority but before you jump into BGs with a fresh 90.  Please obtain the following gear, not necessary in this order:

Crafted PVP gear (476 gear, optional, could be costly) > Timeless Isle Armor Tokens (a fast set of 496 gear especially if this is an alt and you have a bunch of plate tokens saved up) > Use Burden of Eternity on offset pieces(belt, feet, wrists, neck) first for a few 535s  > Timeless Isle Polearms x2.  The Yak-Herder’s Longstaff will cost you 40,000 Timeless Coin > upgrade Yak-Herder’s Longstaff fully to 505s for 2000 Valor Points total (don’t worry you will be converting Justice Points to Honor) > then Jump into the BGs

Now… your friend from your old server comes up with…

2 set > x2 2H Swords > 4 set > trinkets > offset (belt, feet, wrists, neck, rings, cape)

2 set Disarm Duration reduced by 50% and Increase PVP power by 500

Chest
Grievous Gladiator’s Plate Chestpiece (2250 Honor) >

Helm
Grievous Gladiator’s Plate Helm (2250 Honor) >

You can’t DPS without weapons

2H Sword
Grievous Gladiator’s Greatsword (3500 Honor) >

2H Sword
Grievous Gladiator’s Greatsword (3500 Honor) >

You can stop here (going forward is optional if you are only doing this for swords)

4 set Increases your speed by 70% for 3 sec after using Heroic Leap and Increase PVP power by 1000

Legs
Grievous Gladiator’s Plate Legguards (2250 Honor) >

Hands
Grievous Gladiator’s Plate Gauntlets (1750 Honor, reduces Hamstring by 3 sec) or

Shoulders
Grievous Gladiator’s Plate Shoulders (1750 Honor)

Trinket

‘Til next time…

XOXO Maevalivia

Skoll was my first Spirit Beast I ever tamed.  It wasn’t Loque’nahak or the bear or the tiger.  It was the wolf.  If you ever played a dwarf you know wolves are one the first beasts you can tame.  The most legendary being Timber, he is only level 5 now, but in the past he was a hard kill, especially with his body guards.

ScreenShot_111609_211247

I swore. I sometimes miss that dead old server, Dalvengyr. Then I was browsing some old screen shots and I found these…

ScreenShot_122809_005648 ScreenShot_123009_103650 ScreenShot_122509_150846 They were from December 2009 during the WotLK expansion.  That bow and staff would match so well with my current transmog.  Which leads me to our most recent selfie together. WoWScrnShot_070814_193212

We were both admiring our recently planted trees. Since MoP came out and BM was actually good again, I took Skoll out and we rocked up the Hozen, Yungol, some Pandaren, some rogue Jinyu, and a few others.  He has been almost a constant companion since the expansion released.  I also created a transmog set reflecting his blue and white hues. I can’t wait to explore Draenor with this loyal pet.  That self heal and Mastery buff will help me so much.  Now what was that name of that bow again? I am pretty sure it was from Pit of Saron.

‘Til next time…

My internet was down for about a couple of months. I am finally back. I logged in to Wow and didn’t know what to do.

I went on my Rogue and flew to the BMAH. Then logged out.

Maybe I’ll get my screws in order in a few days.

‘Til next time…

I rolled need on the Hydrocane while leveling my Fury Warrior. It is one of the earliest items you may obtain that will allow under water breathing. You can equip one 2H and this item as a Fury Warrior. You can swap out the cane for a weapon to reset your breathing.  You can also explore underwater areas without worry.  This is a must have item for any leveling class that is not a Warlock.  You can use it as long as you can equip a staff.  Good luck!

So you roll a Deathknight? Your main of another class has 2 gathering professions. Skinning and mining. You want to tank so you make your DK a leather worker and a blacksmith.

Wait this is not how it began…

You open your box, spend some time with the install disk, then spend minutes installing a giant game. You never heard of Wowhead or Wowinsider. You don’t even know what class to pick. You just know your friends told you to play horde on a specific server. You roll a toon, play it a bit, give up because warlock pets are so damn ugly.

Log out…

The next day you log back in and notice the dwarf with the bear on the Vanilla trailer. You like that. Log back on and play on your warlock. Level up some tailoring and enchanting give up.

Log out…

You decide to not to play with your Horde friends and roll a dwarf.

You run thru the snow your first 10-15 levels then meet some random dude in Wetlands. He tells you to level because WotLK is coming out. You are like “WotLK?”

Reroll on a different server because this guy just scared you by talking about some undead invasion and all that reminds you of are the zombies from the first Resdient Evil game.

Reroll your dwarf on one of those new player servers. You pick red hair this time and a long comfortable beard.

You level at your own pace. Don’t even hit level 70 until after WotLK comes out. You buy the collector’s edition because your Horde friend tells you to and your new guild is bad ass because everyone is online at the same time and everyone is leveling.

You decided to level Engineering because you are a Hunter and you can make your own bullets and range weapon. You also like the look of googles. Pre-transmog. You pick mining to help you level Engineering. You start a blog on WordPress to help you keep track of all the resources and blogs you discover.

You did not get 2 gathering professions on your first toon.

Min/Max is now entirely pointless.
