Resto PvP Gear at 1800?
Return to board index
Hi, so I think I will hit 1800 soon, well here's to hoping anyway. My ques is what are you high rated arena druids getting for your main/off hand. I've been looking at the one hand mace with the off hand. But which off hand, the spell pen or the spirit? If you get the spell pen, does that mean you just need one gem with spell power/spell pen to get 75 which is what i've heard i'm suppose to have. In that case which cloak enchant do I pick up? Or do I keep my spell pen enchant on my cloak and my spell power/spell pen gems that I already have (sitting at 74 spell pen and I don't get resisted that i've noticed) and go for the extra spirit? Thoughts suggestions, Does it even make a difference?
Or Do I get the 2 hander lol?
2 hander lol? Numbers are very very close if you look carefully.
What I use for 2v2s (warrior/Druid)
I chose the hit staff for looks because it was either
+hit neck, cloak, ring, and Spirit Staff,
+hit Staff, ring, and spirit cloak, neck.
Numbers add up very close
The problem with not using your blue sockets for Spell Pen and getting it from elsewhere (i.e. OH) is that several of the blue socket bonuses are Spell Power, so you would seem to get a somewhat diminished result from gemming SP in them.
To me it's close enough that the Mace looking absolutely crap made me go for a staff. It's not 1.5% less Spell Power that makes me lose matches at 1800 rating.. it's me screwing up that makes me lose matches :-)
You know, I'd never even thought about getting my hit from my staff instead of from my neck/cloak/ring. another decision. So you don't find running with 0 spell pen causes you trouble?
profile linked has 75.
play with the profiler is all i can suggest.
ah i see it, show's up at 0(must be talking about armor pen) in the bottom, but you have 3, 25 spell pen gems.
Oh well I have you answering this post I'm going to throw one more out at you. I see you have points into living spirit and not empowered touch. I've been debating between the 2 for awhile but I keep thinking the bonus to my nourish might be better as i'm rarely in tree form to get the bonus sp from the spirit, or does my regen get enough bonus to warrent it? Thanks (this is my first season as resto) did a 1/2 a season as feral so any advice is great
I personally find it hard to cast Nourish much in 2s, but my team is not very good (1850 as war/druid is failing... apparently). Usually when i cast Nourish in a lot in a fight, and we look back and try to analyse wtf happened (which we often do, win or lose) me or my warrior had made some mistake prior to the situation where I started spamming Nourish, like not CCing the guy who was doing the damage that made me need to spam Nourish, or my warrior not using his cooldowns right (shield block, retaliation, etc...). If you see what i mean. However, I never seen a really high rated druid with any points in Empowered Touch for a 2s spec, so I guess we can take a hint from that :-)
For general tips I'd ask a high rated druid if you can find one, and watch as many PvP videos as you can. Most videos are diabolically bad (gladiators fail at making decent videos), but you can often learn things despite the poor quality.

It's the Penetration listed in the Spell section :-P
Fair enough, all comes down to play style I suppose. I find my locks felhunter needs nourish a alot, and outside of that I cast it quite a bit, but I notice my mana drains fast when I'm having to cast nourish. Thanks again
