WoW BHA Player vs Player

What item set will that make?

That is for the plate set-Bloodied or Ornate Pyrium , there are similar sets for cloth, mail, and leather.

My main bitch was the mail sets for dragon leather workers needs those orb thingies that only drop in heroics. I am decked out in full gladiator gear already, but that is a big barrier to leather and mail wearers.

But if you can make or get a guildie to make a set, it offers a great leg up over your 316 blues and greens.

Finally, Warhound made a full set of Bloodied pyrium. Ornate Pyrium, the resto pally set uses water instead of fire. Shoot me a tell Enix when you hit 85. Bloodied would make a good Shockadin or Ret set for you. Or we can get water and such for Ornate, and maybe I save the Bloodied for my warrior or give it to a DK.

I was playing in 2v2 with Act today and I think that is really the realm of melee classes. There is just not enough time or space for a hunter to do anythin. I'd probably excel better in 5v5 or larger.

Alrighty, I've got all the elementium that I need for a full set of bloodied pyrium, but I'm short about 60 volatile fires. Anyone have some they'd like to sell me? I'll gladly pay market value, but I'd rather the money go to a guildie.

Big thanks to Karmajay, Carganthem, and KingGorilla for the help gearing up tonight!

And thanks to KG for putting up with an arena noob for a few matches, showing me the ropes... And how to take down a team of two pretty much by himself

There's a couple of maps that are hard on hunters if the other team use it correctly. The graveyard one is extremely annoying.

Still TK and I have been somewhat successful regardless of that.

With all of you superstars stepping up to the ranks of the PvP world, pretty soon we're gonna need to roll on some Rated BG's. We've probably got some 12 of us that have shown interest in the past and are still doing so now. I'm wondering if we want to take Grinds up on his offer and put up a signup for getting rated BGs on the main forum raid page, or whatever he mentioned in an earlier post...

Will do. I hit 84 over the weekend, mostly by doing laps in Deepholm. I mined a ton but I'm still short by, well, a lot. Eighty fires for the whole set?! Lord almightly, I was glad to see 4 in an hour. Guess I need to put on my asbestos waders and do some fire fishing in Hyjal.

As for gear, I'm eyeing the Bloodied set for a prot build. I went with ret gear in Wrath, and it let me do a decent amount of damage without getting smoked right away.

Look for the set on the AH. Most of the pieces are needed to level BS to 525. They are pretty inexpensive due to a flooded market.

legs and chest were still a bit pricy last week but everything else was cheap.

Also check the guild bank last i look we still had shoulders in there.

I have everything but legs, chest, helm. Fire can be fished in Twilight. I am not sure how much fire Warhound has left at the moment. I sent him like a stack of 110 last week.

But if we can get you decked out and can get you saving for your 2 hander, you should be OK. You can round out the lot with honor gear for jewelry. If you can take maybe an hour or two and get your daily battleground win, and play a Tol Barad, you should be able to get 2 or 3 honor pieces each week. Run those TB dailies whenever you can. That rep is very important for PVP as far as getting their new inscriptions.

Saw belts today for 50g and less. So, ya, check the AH for people throwing them away. Its pretty common to see several pieces for less than the price of the mats, hell, less than the price of the v. fire. The prices pogo up and down, one week its profitable to sell the armor, the next you buy it and wait to resell it. Worse than the ebonsteel belt buckle market.

Fishing for fire: Lord Cannon sits on an island in a ring of lava, in Twilight Highlands, NW corner. Hard to miss. Around him spawns some fire elementals and 4 pools of fire. You only need enough fishing skill to equip a fishing rod, i.e. 1, as long as the bobber lands in the pool. The elementals can drop some too, there are also some air and water elementals nearby. Probably the best place to farm those three, and there are some earth elementals in the zone as well, but given the drop rate and the prices on the AH, I'd rather run dailies and buy any earth I might need.

Oh, I wanted to add. Don't forget rep. If you can get to revered with Wildhammer or Baradin's Wardens, you have access to some good armor and weapons, even better at exalted. Wardens are tough due to having to get marks.

In my AH trolling last night, the belt was the only piece of the Bloodied Pyrium set that was significantly below the mats costs. I picked one up for about 50 gold.

The mats cost average for all the pieces in the set is about 300 gold, plus or minus about 50 depending on how much elementium you need. (Each piece needs 10 fire.). Most everything else was at or above mats cost last night. I suspect prices will increase during the week and drop over the weekend, which might be the best time to shop.

As for the fire, there are only two places in the game where Pools of Fire will spawn: Twilight Highlands (as LtW) mentioned above, and Hyjal in the big fire pit to the south.

El's Anglin says each pool will give you (on average) 4.5 volatile fires. The problem: Only 4 pools at a time, and they take 12-15 mins to respawn.

If you fish in the lake of fire itself, but not in a pool, you've got a 5 percent chance to grab 1-2 fire -- in other words, it's better to mine or farm stuff that drops it.

There's apparently no fishing level requirement to catch 'em. All you need is an asbestos rod and the ability to fish.

The best way to use that farming spot is to fish all the pools, then kill all the fire elementals in the area while you wait for respawns. You should have very minimal downtime this way.

Raid schedule is up. Looking for non raiders to get in on some arenas and rated BGs. Newbies like Aries or Act can get milled in 2s for points as well. But for the 5 of us geared, we need to work on the 3 and 5 ratings. I want 2200 rankings by St Patricks day.

I'd be up for farming CP on Friday, and potentially Wednesday.

I am good for most evenings after 6:30 p.m. CST and most anytime on weekends with some notice. Would love to roll in some rated BGs with my ret pally (Ryobei).

10 server most nights is when I get on. Might be able to do some weekend stuff, but not too likely.

Just for reference. The pecking order is staff(or 2 hander or main hand weapon), chest, shoulders, helm. Save those tol barad marks for inscriptions too.

I also burn the late oil. Generally, I am on about 10:30 or so Eastern until 12:30(earlier on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the week), 1 am on a long night. If no one pops on, I run some dailies for maybe an hour and then I watch Hulu or Netflix movies or play another game(something is broken in me as I cannot get into the last season of Sam and Max). On an off chance, I will fire up my warrior in that time and level to see if anyone gets on later.

I will extend this as well. For those of you early risers, or if you have kids. I play a lot Saturday and Sunday mornings. I am usually on around 7 or 8 server(AKA 8 or 9 EST). I have found that a great time to run battlegrounds for honor, and to get a TB win for the week. And I am always up for company, and an audience for my dick and fart jokes.

Make sure you're hit and spell pen capped as well. Specifically, the cloak gives 178 spell pen which is about all you need. For casters, the two hand is better since the off hand intellect enchant was nerfed.

RL has gotten in the way of my playing time lately. I get home about 7 est but if people are around for arenas/BGs I can stay late. Resto druid and disc/shadow priest thats only about half geared.

I have mentioned this before. If you feel bad about not logging on for arenas, I am doing this wrong.

That said, so there are no surprises or hurt feelings. If we get more people interested, and geared I may have to start milling people off of teams in favor of them. We have not gotten there yet, but it may happen.

I'm scheduled to raid this evening, however I'm willing to stay up to work on our rating after the raid is finished. I need a few wins for another piece of the legit gears...

Tsk, Tsk. I do not think it unreasonable to hit 1500 this week. Let's get on it.

Ran 2s with Aries last night. Pro tip. Get one of your 6 bars set with an arena rotation. I have maybe 6 spells I use a lot, and then macros for 6 more.

With heroism gone, I picked up the Agility trinket. Next will be a new belt. Also, got my black ram. I already made Texas ranger jokes.

I'll be online about 7:30 est till whenever I pass out. BGs? Arenas?

Roll call time. This week is my " spring break" I expect to be around about 9 or 10 server. Work, gym, coffee shop, home.

We need to get some serious time in 3s and 5s if we hope to advance our ranks. Pick ups whenever just seems to spin our wheels. Let me know what you think of Tues, Thurs, Sundays at least an hour, most likely starting at 8 or 9 server time.

I expect a few more newbies. I will use them as a means to get a healing set of bloodthirsty gear.

I am at 74 pets, any chanters care to make me a lamp?

You do realize that all 3 times you listed already have raids scheduled, right?

Well, not everyone on the arena teams raids.
