finally I can set a plan on spending my arena points ...Don't all the S4 pieces require personal ratings? If so, you will have to re-earn your rating before you can buy them as every toon (and team) will get reset to 1500 when S4 is released.

Though I guess you could buy S3 without issue. I wonder if the S3 shoulders will loose their 2000 personal rating requirement?

well I can get the healing off-hand and gloves ... also the S3 pieces are cheaper ... Since I cant get lucky for a leather healing helm to drop I will buy the S3 helm.

Shoulders will be 1900. Weapon will be 1750.

*edit: S3 that is. S4 has its own weird ratings tier, with the shoulders requiring the highest arena rating at like 2150 or something

I just heard that all bg honor will be reset to zero upon s4 release? Anyone know anything about that?

no way!

but if they DO, imma be pissed! better have all your BG marks saved up... im sitting on about 40,000 honor and 90-100 marks from each bg...

I may go ahead and spend it on the vindicator's stuff for healers ahead of time, and then grind for the S2 mace and shoulders for my feral set... <sigh> it looks like i'll be going resto or dreamstate healing for my 3's team... Blizz needs to release a bag with more slots

you GOTTA admit that it looks better than S3 gear though, right? :)

meh ... this time around we look like a mixture of a rogue/lock ... still nothing compared to the Dreamwalker look

Is S3 the same look as T6? If so, I really prefer S3/T6 to the new S4.

yea, S3 is the same as T6... those shoulders look just plain ol UGLY and the look all together looks way too voodoo/hippyish for my taste... lol

Dreamwalker was rad. Best name for a set, best look for a set. Ah I miss prebc.

okay, i'll give it to you, the dreamwalker set definitely looks pretty badass... being a relative noob, i had no idea what you were talking about, so i had to google image it... i still like the S4 set better, not to mention the S1/T1 set... i think that set is the bad-assest looking (for us taurens, anyways)

I think I like the look of dreamwalker a lot purely for pre-BC nostalgia. I miss when everything wasnt all super uber glowy, and the days when not every person on the server had their arena set and looked the same.

That's one of my biggest complaints about how blizzard is doing things now. They are so concerned about pleasing the masses that this game is losing it's identity. I have no problem with putting in new ways for people to gear up (raiding/arena/battlegrounds/heroic badges), but why does the gear have to look the same? What's wrong with making gear look different?

What's wrong with making gear look different?I've never understood the need for good looking gear. Especially from Druids who spend 99% looking like a tree, bear, cat or a weird chicken.

Frankly, I never really look at my toon other than when I'm sitting at the login screen. He could be a big green arrow and I'd be happy.

I really like S3/T6. I think the shoulders and helm look awesome, and I can't wait to get my hands on 'em. ;)

S4 is a trainwreck though. I wouldn't mind all of the sets of the same armour class looking similar if they actually looked good. S4 is by far the ugliest set to be released by Blizzard. Ever.

Raiding armor sets and PvP rewards sets will look different and won't share the same model anymore in Wrath of the Lich King.

S4 set looks are a joke, but the stats are ridiculous.
