Decided to give arenas a whirl after seeing all the people in greens with T6 looking helms. The paladin protection spec is easily the least arena viable of them all, so I dumped my talent points and did the unthinkable..specced Holy. Now without going into too much detail, let's just say that my heal gear is somewhat..lackluster. It's not bad stuff per se, but it's a lot of mail and one piece of leather from Hyjal and BT, so I look pretty much fucking ridiculous in it. How to counter this? Bulwark of Azzinoth. There's no armor in this game that doesn't look good with this shield, and it serves a dual purpose. They see that shield and people leave me alone, which is great because I weigh in at a powerful 0 resilience.

My teammates Obelinux and Neloran have significantly better PVP gear than I do, but they seem willing to drag me along while they blow people apart and I press my heal buttons.

Update! Tried a new setup, with Neloran, Avere (resto druid) and myself. Linking to her description with illustration!

I take it your strat works. Go in looking like a tank and ppl will leave you alone till last, but lo-and-behold.....a healer. Kinda wanted to try it, but don't pvp much at all. Guess i will have to give it a try if it works.

What a clever disguise!

Not that people should be DPSing the pally anyway. >.>

I love your healing gear! It's so cute. Especially the bird hat.
