View Full Forums : PVP gear in PVE question

10-01-2008, 12:39 PM
I'm a sort of Dreamstate spec, 35/0/26, and mostly Merciless Wyrmhide gear. I'm looking at enchants and stuff to put on, I've started to do some PVE now so I've been considering enchanting for Spirit because it's nearly non-existent on PVP gear. My Spirit sits at a depressing 173 but in most Heroics I don't know that I really need it. I'm at a tossup between enchanting Spirit or +Spell Damage like the spell power enchants.

I've been considering collecting a set of Restore PVP gear to help me when I'm healing. It's a toss up on that though cause I'd have my daughter do it while I'm at work LOL.

What do you guys think? Yes I am going to do some PVE in my PVP gear cause I don't have time to collect much other gear.

Ignore the pvp gear bigots. No, the stats are not optimal for pve, but that does not mean you can't do your job if you have a reasonable amount of skill.

Do you mostly heal or do damage in dungeons or raids? Spirit is good if you mostly heal, if you mostly do damage get spell damage.

In instances and raids I'm usually in Moonkin form. I will take a regular instance run and heal in it though I have a mostly blue/green set of healing gear for that.

I remember we used to stack spirit when I was a Resto spec but don't really do it as a Balance spec.

My advice would be to keep your pvp gear optimized (in terms of enchants and gems) for pvp. You will eventually find pve gear that is better for pve anyway :>
