Best Professons for Arena
Professions are without a doubt one of the most overlooked aspects of arena and pvp. Too often players are so concerned with gear, enchants, and gems that they completely overlook just how much professions can add.
So why enchanting? Simply put, the ring enchants. What we’re looking at here is:
Now, a lot of people just flat out overlook these, or don’t consider them worth dropping one of their current professions for enchanting. For a melee player I can see the argument, +2 melee damage is pretty lackluster and +4 stats isn’t stellar either.
That said, for casters I don’t think there is a better option. +40 healing or +24 damage is just insane.
In addition (though it’s not related to pvp), you have a ton of potential to make some serious gold with the profession. Tuesdays are great for offering your services in Shattrath City, as there are always people needing new enchants for their newest piece of arena gear.
With the addition of the badge vendor through Sunwell Island dailies a whole new realm of gem socketing was opened up to the masses.
Beyond the fact that we can all get epic gems cut, any jewelcrafter with a bit of time and gold can have the best gems in the game…
Since these gems are BoP you’ll only be able to use a couple of them depending on your spec and class. But even so, this gives you just that extra edge that could be the deciding factor in a game.
In addition, you’ve got various figurine trinkets for each spec and class.
And quite frankly, if spending gold equates additional wins, then I’m more than willing to take on the expenses, and considering how easy it is to farm gold so should you!
When the burning crusade released I was very disappointed in engineering. They basically destroyed everything that I loved so much about the profession pre-BC.
However, I think we can all say engineering is back and better than ever. While some of the items aren’t really viable for arena, there are a few in particular that really make the profession worth it.
- Rocket Boots Extreme | Rocket Boots Extreme Lite
- T5 / T6 equivalent goggles (depends on accessibility and talent spec)
The two I’ve listed above are just straight up domination for arena, the goggles specifically. With those type of stats and improved stealth detection! That’s just insane.
