    Default How to start gearing for PvP at lvl 70?

    Hey nerds!

    I just finished the story and stranded on 69 (halfway to 70). Since I'm only looking to PvP at max level, I thought I'd just start up now. I'm kind of at a loss where to start however, and I didn't immediately find any guides to help me.

    I haven't spent a considerable time at max level in the previous expansions, so some of these questions may seem silly.

    - In the online shop, the only pvp Gear for 70 under Favor I can currently find is a blue set (Slayer's Garb). Do I need to collect these in order to "unlock" further sets? Or can I buy those at an NPC somewhere?

    - Where can I find the PvP quests (assuming these exist for lvl 70)

    - Other than gear, what other things do you need? Can you enchant items? Do consumable buffs like food or scrolls exist and do they work in PvP? Same with healing pots.

    That's about it from the top of my head. Sorry if these questions seem dumb to most of you.

    Default "I'll define 'what is bis gears for pvp' for you all"

    Posting this here for you but you can thank Musclepig@Deepwood for writing this:

    PVP BIs means......

    Head : Slayers gear + bis dream orb
    cape : COA cape + rune + dream orb
    shoulder : COA armor + rune + dream orb
    Chest : 988 main stat (upgrade from 914 gear in wf box)
    hand : slayers
    wrist : slayers + dream orb
    leg : 988 main stat (upgrade from 914 in wf box) + rune
    foot : slayers
    earrings :
    rogue,war,prim - SPE earrins
    mage, cleric - 621 stats from wf box
    neck : Nighttidemare neck + rune + dream orb. (Don't need to be COA thing. don't ask why to me. it is)
    trinkets : I guess a thing from wf box. but I'm using warmonger's
    rings : 621 stats from wf box
    seal : 1000p thing in store
    weapons : slayers + rune
    focus : expensive thing + all pvp 495 main stat essences with CP (I don't know which is better AP or CP atm) or 505/360 green gears from Major rifts. almost same as I know.



    If you got all of these, you made 30~40% of bis for pvp. ROFL

    The way to real bis is getting nice "war" fragments from boxes and upgrading it to max level.

    As I know, there isn't single one who is even close to bis pvp gears because of dam fragments.


    This is not well known thing, but if you tested it, you could feel it easily.

    Geared 70 >>> bolstered low level for overall thing and even for damage only.

    Thanks! Some of these things will take some translating for me, but now I know where to start (somewhat).

    Slayers gear IS the blue gear you can just get from the shop, right?

    EDIT: And do PvP boxes only drop at lvl 70? I don't think I've gotten any up till now, and I won all games I was in (that's right, BOTH of them!!). >

    Slayers gear is purchased with challenger marks from the shop.

    Correct. Also your gear doesn't really matter until you ding 70 because when you are 69 you are "sidekicked" to 70 in PvP and your gear is replaced so you won't have to worry about gearing until level 70. You could simply PvP without having to worry about gear for that last half of 69-70.

    How do you earn those anyway?
    EDIT: Nvm, found it out myself.

    Still haven't figured out where to get PvP quests tho.

    But where are mah dailies though? D: I've been searching the net for a while now and the only thing I found out is that they exist, but not where I can find them, whether I need to hit 70 first, etc.

    Thanks for all the other info though guys, makes it so I feel comfortable that I won't waste recourses on the wrong stuff.

    For pvp, there are no weekly quests after 65.

    Oh, that's interesting. I guess the core items (like Slayer gear) don't look that expensive to come by anyway, so it doesn't matter much.

    Are the 65 quests still relevant in Prophecy?
