Arena Season 3 Gear PICS + STATS!!

Posted by Smith on October 17, 2007

World of warcraft has different styles of play that gets you different types of gear. One style is called the Arena system, its a player vs player aspect where a set roster of players will duke it out with other teams the same size and skill. About every 4 months a new and more powerful set of armor is released for arena players to stride toward. The new installment for season 3 is out! The armor is the same skins as PVE armor tier 6 but it is different colors ie: instead of blue and silver for the priest set, it’s silver and red. The new feral druid weapon is a staff with wings and has over 1100 attack power, and also the warstaff this season is going to be blue not reddish pink. Something else to consider is that blizzard feels it is necessary to require a minimum personal rating to receive the weapon and the shoulder pieces for season 3. They want the fancy armor for the skilled players who have a high rating and really work toward it, not just the normal player who just saves up a bunch of points. take a look at season 3!!

  1. […] The season 3 arena gear for patch 2.3 links are hereย  […]

    ty for posting them so nicely.

  3. Ben said

    hey smith, are back in Whistler on or near Bernie’s birthday? I’m gonna be home then, too

  4. Smith said

  5. Matthews said

    Hey all,

    Just wondering about the stats for the new Shield Wall (or something like that) the warrior shield, anyway just wondering what stats it has.

  6. Ciasto said

    Omfg why dont hunters need rating for their frikkn axe BS

  7. Smith said

    Ciasto i was reading the PTR forums and it says that its a glitch and there is supposed to be a rating requirement for the hunter weapons too. They’ll definitely fix that before the new arena gear goes live

  8. Ave said

    When will this go live?

  9. Smith said

    Well Blizzard will give us 2week notice before releasing this content… It is probably going to be released the same time as patch 2.3 but you never know. looking at the timeline between the other seasons this season would have come out mid Oct… but it didn’t… so i’m inclined to say that it’s 4-5 weeks away and at the very least 3 weeks… but I’m could be wrong (as i’m just guessing)… and I’m probably gunna get flamed for making such a wild prediction.

  10. Garrett said

    Hey, since the season three weapons now feature slow offhands, are similar slow offhands also being added in for season 1/2 gear?

  11. Smith said

    ummm i’m not sure… i haven’t heard anything about it. If you find out plz let me know on this blog.

  12. Peanutdog said

    Poor mages hahaha… so lucky im a Shadow Priest Wooo!

  13. Smith said

    hehe yea you said it…

  14. […] Season 3 Arena Gear […]

  15. Yes said

    God, why do humans look so damn gay.

    Response to:
    “Omfg why dont hunters need rating for their frikkn axe BS”

    That’s because their ranged weapon is their primary weapon. Check the crossbow, it requires 1850 rating.

  16. Brekin said

    The mage arena season three is the worst looking gear, The season two looks really cool and i dont know who the hell made the new stuff, i hope it gets changed cus i dont want to look like a lighthouse

  17. metalman said

    once you meet the requirments for the amour do u hav to maintain that pvp rating in order to be able to use the item

  18. spaz said

    nope, just need to have the rating to buy it

  19. ashenskye said

    “They want the fancy armor for the skilled players who have a high rating and really work toward it”

    you mean any team with a MS war, Holy Pally and SL lock

  20. veryheavy said

    cant wait for my vengful glads 2h wep looking forward 2 the patch r u sure it requires an 1850 arena team i was told 2k…

  21. Ineria said

    how much Arena points will it be to get one of those . and how Does the Personal Rating Works ??

  22. Smith said

    to Veryheavy:
    The weapons will require a personal rating of 1850 while the shoulder pieces will require a rating of 2,000.

  23. boz said

    Are they going to have new Honor Epics or just rings and ammys?

  24. Smith said

    the Season 1 arena gear will be available for honor once Season three comes out on November 20th

  25. selvmord said

    why do the mage and war sets look like theyre taken right out of halo?

  26. Gav said

    Is the pic above the correct graphic for the war axe? i bought it for my hunter on the PTR and it looked completely different

  27. yabba said

    To Gav, nope blizz changed a lot of skins, and one of those being the skin for the axe, tho it looks even more evil now >=)

  28. Smith said

    ook thanks for the info i was not aware of any skins being changed.

  29. gav said

    yeah thats cool, the other skin was the same as some other axe (cant remember wat it was) so its better to have a completely original look i think

    cant wait to get that axe for real, /vender Crystal forged war axe lol XD

  30. veryheavy said

    ty smith 1 more question once ur in an 1850 team adn u get the 2h wep do u ahve to stay in that team to use it or can u leave straight after u brought it?

  31. Smith said

    nope… once you buy whatever piece that requires a minimum rating you do not have to keep your rating above it… once its yours its yours no springs attached

  32. veryheavy said

    kk ty for all the help u have been very insightful lol well ty

  33. Smith said

    np, comment whenever you like ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Smith said

    you guys might want to read one of my newer posts for more information on patch 2.3 and the new season


  35. JAX said

    Smith, are you sure there will be a requirement of rating on the hunter axe, have you got a blue post that says that?

    Here is a blue post that specifically says that there will not be one:


  36. Ness said

    If nothing else I’m glad they made these season 3 sets look even more distinct (Color wise) from Tier-6. Tier-5 and Season 2 looked so close to the same you usually couldn’t tell at quick glance. I like the fact that the Arena players can take pride in their distinct colored PVP gear and the Raiders can take pride in their own gear, Hopefully without noobs mixing the 2 up.

    My only complaint is I have a alt who is pretty well geared with the exception of shoulders which I can never seem to get to drop, and go figure thats the 1 armor piece I need a bad a$$ arena rating to get ; ; oh well thats just my luck, Season 2 shoulders will have to do:/ .

  37. Jayson said

    I have alot of arena points but not a very high rating. (1700 or something)

    If I wanted to, couldn’t I theoretically ask another team with a rating higher than 2000 to let me in and then I purchase the desired items then leave.

  38. Sufferable said

    That would be nice wouldnt it. However if I’m correct then the arena team rating requires you to actually be a member of that team with that rating in order to equip that item. Such that if you were to leave…or someone was nice enough to boot you… you would no longer be able to equip the item even though you’ve paid for it in blood sweat and deaths in arena…. rendering it useless. The final pieces are designed with the true hardcore pvp’rs in mind to distinguish them from the rest. I for one would love to see the entire set on my priest but yeah I’ve had difficulty getting any number 2, 3 or 5 team above 1750 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    That said… I’ve already horded arena points in anticipation of the patch and cant wait to sink my teeth into the first piece of gear when it comes out!

  39. LoGiK said

    This is just a thought and i might be wrong………but this could be a solution to getting high rating,please before u leave and comments in regard to what im about to write atleast go and read up how personal rating works if your going to hurl some abuse.For example ill use my 2v2 on my warrior,i play with a pala,if i were to play from say 1500-1700 rating on my warrior,then let my healer play with a different member of my team and lose purposely back down to 1500,and then i play it back up to 1700……….would that be a way to get personal rating pretty high with the minimum of effort lol?If anyone has any feedback or ideas let me know.Cheers.

  40. Smith said

    well there seems to be many different theories on how the “personal rating” issue will play out. We do know that its not just the rating of your highest team or why would Blizzard give it a different name. This is just a guess but I’m inclined to say that personal rating is just the rating you have from only the games you play with your highest ranking team. That makes sense to me, but the other ones make sense too ie: switching out and into a new team.

    To Sufferable,
    I also know that once you are able to purchase a piece of gear that requires a personal rating its yours to use forever, whether or not your rating drops below the limit to “buy” the item.

  41. LoGiK said

    Smith there is plenty of info available on how it works,you have an individual personal rating for each team,its the same as ur team rating except it doesnt count games u didnt play in,when swapping a team your personal rating for that team size resets

  42. Smith said

    ahh well i was half right ๐Ÿ˜›

    if you can find a link to this info post it here if you have the time ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. LoGiK said

    dude its in a comment posted by you abit further up LMAO ๐Ÿ˜€

  44. Smith said

    great… don’t i feel smart now ๐Ÿ˜›

    thanks for clearing things up and keep commenting ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. LoGiK said


  46. LoGiK said

    ah nvm that wasnt@you smith,was some spam post but looks like its been deleted :p

  47. Smith said

    lol i just deleted that doofus…

  48. Jimmy said

    im at school cant really look at the links from the gear cuz its all blocked…but what pieces require 1850+ rating? all the weapons? i also heard that some chestpieces and helmets require it too.

  49. LoGiK said

    majority of weapons are +1850 rated with a few exceptions,and shoulders are 2000 rated,although do remember that is personal rating not your highest team rating

  50. calib said

    Are there going to come out new PvP Trinkets / Rings / amulets rewards aswell?!

  51. Anub said

    Hey where can i find prices on the gear :-P?

  52. Smith said

    i don’t know about the prices yet but we’ll find out on the 27th.

  53. :O said

    Fox its Personal rating not arena rating !!!

  54. SteelWolf said

    Personal rating
    My guess on this is you join a team, you stay, it builds up. win or loose. Rather then having it match your team rating. Catch is you have to be active. No matches no ratings. Because it would suck if you had to have 1800+ team rating and personal rating every time. Spend the points, and have to earn them over again. That would keep you on the team.

  55. Smith said

    Here is what the personal rating will be guys


  56. Smith said

    I read in the “under development” tab on worldofwarcraft.com and saw the most recent patch notes in the forums for the PTR and it said some arena weapons were accidentally posted up without a rated requirement and that they were going to fix the issue.

    I’m not surprised that they changed it, Its their secondary weapon so it seems fair enough. Wands also don’t require a personal rating of 1850 either last time i checked.

  57. chaos said

    yeah i just veiwed this site my schhol comp wont let me veiw the damn links but could someone be kind enough to stick the chest and legs stats up i also wanna see does it require rating to get legs and chest (mage set btw)

  58. Smith said

    hes probably not at school anymore… that was nearly 8 hours ago

  59. Gharok said

    sounds kinda good, but even if your team is close to 1850 like mine (MS Holy Lock) doesnt mean ull get your armor unless your the only one that has played all the games, like i got the rating with my 3v3 from 1600 to 1750 but does that mean ill have close to 1850 personal?

  60. Smith said

    over time yeah, if your rating stays pretty much the same and you participate in a lot of games. You get points for the rounds you attend.

  61. Gharok said

    its coming out in december?

  62. Gharok said

    dunno if i should buy my 3rd set of season 2 helm or wait for the season 3 >.>>gharok human lvl 70 warr tell me what u guys think ^.^

  63. HUMAN said

    there are no human hunters…

  64. Skylore said

    Are you freaking kidding me? Feral druid S3 gear has worse stats that season 2! Isn’t the point of the new season to be an improvement?!!!!

  65. chaos said

    can someone post the sats on the mage set chest legs and shoulders cause on the school web i cant veiw em and il see them the next time i come on this site

  71. bigmac said

    i hate wow

  72. bigmac said

    but this was an awesome post

  73. gangsta*bunny said

    all i can do is cross my fingers and hope that hunt waraxe is not team rated =P if so then ill have to settle with an eyeball on my forehead 8 more hours!

  74. gangsta*bunny said

    so pretty much what everyone is saying is personal rating means i cant buy into a 2v2 or 3v3 team with 1850 team rating? if so then F**K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i know people will tell me to rely on skill but F**K that!

  75. Jerrek said

    Until they balance some of the class combinations it will NEVER be about skill at the high end it’ll be about how good of a paladin can you bring to the fight.

  76. NubLord said

    I’ll still own everyone with mix season 1 & 2 , frost mage, on my 2v2 I got a lock, rating 1950.

  77. Drudgern said

    ARGHGHGHG, I just read on Curse that it was delayed until tomorrow… I already was wigging out here at work itching to go buy my Hunter axe, Merc Gloves, and a few arena S1 pieces.

    Like dangling a carrot in front of a mule.

  78. gangsta*bunny said

    hey chaos, mage gear is the meaning of lame

  79. Smith said

    nope i’m at work too but my friend tells me Season 3 went live 1.5 hours ago

  80. SilviaSXV said

    now that fist weapons have the glow removed, does that mean that enchants will now show on them? if so /spooge WOOT? i got merciless ones and depressed cuase mongoose dont show on them and yeah but now ima have to save for these i guess ::)

  81. SilviaSXV said

    also just looking at the rogue armor set, why does it have buffed armor on the set peices? lol since when do we need armor ๐Ÿ˜›

  82. Blitzed said

    your forgettin that hunters got a bow too, along with the crossbow ^_^

  83. Blitzed said

    Hunters also got more then 1 ranged weapon to choose from now ^_^

  84. Smith said

    yea but they was released after i made this post. I added the pages with the new additions up on a newer post.

  85. Smith said

    @silvaSXV yea i expect that Bliz figured S3 pieces need more armor then S2. Even the priest and other clothie sets have an armor buff.

  86. chaos said

    omfg the S3 mage gear looks so gay i hate it make you loo like a cheap light house

  87. chaos said

    im getting S3 legs and glove and rest S2/S1 cause S3 shoulders and head look absolute gay il just get staff instead o the crap looking gear

  88. Himmel said

    Hey all,
    Got a question, is there a site or page that shows all the costs for the arena s2 & s3 gear? Im stuck at sea so i have not been able to check the new costs are for s2 and what the s3 cost since the 2.3 patch came out. Any help is appreciated.

  89. Smith said

    Yes the worldofwarcraft.com armory has the prices for all the arena gear


  90. rao said

    i added up all the resil for the season 3 for warlock plus rings and necklace and endgame,spellblade,and wand and its only just above 300. but i see people woth 500 with 4/5 vengefull and veterans gear. whats up with that?

  91. Smith said

    well there are some trinkets and gems that have lots of resil on them. the exalted trinket from the Keepers of Time has lots of resil on it. I don’t know about enchants but you see my point.

  92. fagsalot said
