WoW Shadow Priest // Ultimate PvP gear (70)!

Filed under: gaming, MMORPG, shadow priest, the burning crusade, World of Warcraft — brainclutter @ 11:57 am

This article is old… SEE THE LATEST VERSION HERE!

My other posts about shadow priests can be found here:

This is a new listing of “ultimate PvP” gear for level 70 Shadow-Priests that can be gained SOLELY through PvP (ie. bought with honour and battleground/arena marks). Additionally, I’ve included a list of gems to place into your socketed gear. This set aims to provide a high:

  • +spell damage rating (+healing is also respectable in case of emergencies)
  • +resilience rating (less chance of getting critted)
  • +spell crit rating
  • +stamina and +int (ignores spirit since it’s a PvP build and you won’t have time to regen in battle)

Achieving a higher stat-sum is possible through raiding or rep-grinding, but that’s not the focus of this template. This is pretty much the best of the best you can get from slaughtering player-controlled enemies rather than fancy shmancy dragons or 1000 demonic underlings!

The Chart!

Stat/Effect Summary!

  • Stamina – 496
  • Intellect – 217
  • Spirit – 0
  • + Spell Damage – 540
  • + Healing – 493
  • + Resilience – 348
  • + Spell Crit – 65
  • Psychic Scream: duration increated by 1 second
  • Weakened Soul (effect of PW:S): duration reduced by 2 seconds
  • Spell Reflect: 1%
  • Medallion (use): dispel Fear/Stun/Poly
  • Talisman (use): instant heal 877-969 *self

The Links! (…some are Horde-specific but Alliance has equivalents)

I hope this helps! If you can find anything that fits better, please leave a comment!

  2. Wow this is great! I’ve actually done this myself and came up with the same exact armor results – although it doesn’t look nearly as clean and neat as yours does XD But would it be possible to open the pool up a little? Instead of focusing on only pvp gear what if you compared the arena rewards with tier 5? and even the Battlecast and Shadoweave sets? This way, let’s say you’ve put up the Gladiator’s Satin Gloves, but the gloves from the Avatar Regalia set has WAY better stats? Then your not getting the utlimate pvp gear. The spreadsheet you made *is* of only PVP stuff but what if you just made the ULTIMATE SET!!! With different items from different sets combined when one was better than the other? You could make a priority system – Which is more important? +dmg, +int, +stam and then +spir? I realize I’m asking for a lot, and I probably should do this myself, but it would be a nice addiction to your webiste. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh, thanks for the thoughtful comment!

    I’ve definitely thought of this and have some half-cocked spreadsheets in the works. I find that the spell-damage from this PvP set is severely lacking compared to what you can get from raids and heroic 5-mans; however, I don’t think you can beat it in terms of +STAMINA.

    I’ve been on the forums lately, and the *general* consensus is that you really need survivability in the arenas/bgs, and that means you want to go for really high stamina. The catch of course is that you need to actually be successful IN the arena to buy the Gladiator set and going in with weak stuff will hinder your chances at increasing your arena rank.

    You could look at the flip side of the argument and go for really high spell-damage to kill your opponents quicker, and that gear would definitely come from raiding and enchants/inscriptions/glyphs etc. It all comes back to: the best defense is a good offense vs. the best offense is a good defense system. Both can be correct in the proper circumstances.

    However, the original intention of this particular post was to show gear that can be gained ONLY through PvP. The reason is that many PvP-enthusiasts detest raiding over and over again to get that 15% chance at a good item. I wanted this post to be for them.

    In a future entry, I will certainly comply with your request for an ULTIMATE set, regardless of where you get the items from. Bookmark and I’ll have something up within a week or so.

    Thanks again for your interest! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hey, it’s the same guy as the guest that posted before, I decided to post as my character name this time B^) Anyways, I have created a spreadsheet that shows exactly what I posted about – with a ranking system. Can you post your website e-mail so I can e-mail you, then get your real e-mail address (without posting it all over the web) and send you the spreadsheet? You could actually probably just use the e-mail that I am required to give to leave a reply. It looks pretty neat.

    Thanks again!

  7. Hey – great guide. Any suggestions on gems/enchants?

    I’m thinking +crit is pretty much essential as much as we can pack it out, but what do I know? ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. This is a nice guide. After looking for such a guide on the optimum damage gear for PvP armor that can be obtained only through PvP, this is probably the only one that comes up. At least it’s the most credible one.

    One problem though – it’s now out of date … You should update this with the new rewards you can get from the Hall of Legends and it’s alliance counterpart.

  9. I’ll try have an update posted by next week at the latest. Thanks for the feedback! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I am looking forward to that. :]

    Why don’t you post this on the official World of Warcraft forums? I’m sure it would have a good chance of being stickied.

  11. You can only post on the official forums with an active account and I cancelled my WoW subscription about 6 months ago. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I have the new post half-written!

    Comment by brainclutter — November 1, 2007 @ 7:06 pm

  12. Ah, I see. I’ll see if I can post on your behalf ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Can’t wait to see the update. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I noticed that this is not the first time you write about this topic. Why have you chosen it again?

  17. Kicking off 2010’s mixed martial arts is the amazing UFC 108. It’s definitely going to be a great event with the kickoff being Evans vs Silva going head to head. You can watch evans vs silva fight video for FREE in full HD without paying that grotty $55.95 PPV cost.

  19. I really enjoy this new WoW guide I found while searching on Youtube. It has some great tips, and now that I reached 60 and need an epic mount, am planning on using it all that much more. It has graphic maps and is just wonderful. Some of the stuff is really fleshed out and given walk-throughs are really easy to follow. Shameless plug I know, but in case someone else is looking for a guide like this I found one.
