My Mage is currently rank 24 with 5 pieces of tier 2 and the rest tier 1 gear along with 2 purple and 4 blue pvp essences in my sigil. I have 1307 valor but only 1100 spellpower. I been looking at the pvp upgrades to come with higher ranks and it doesn't seem like a huge increase in spellpower at rank 40. So my question is it possible to get upwards of 2k spellpower w/o using raid gear or is it required to raid to get to that lvl of power?
I'll be honest I have strictly pvped at 50 so I am in the dark on alot of the pve gear. If there are useful pieces that aren't on the pvp vendors, could someone kindly list them? Thanks.
