    Where to get pvp gear? PVP, Depending on if you are horde or alli, you can buy the pvp gear with pvp points in Org or SW. You can also do WG for Wintergrasp tokens and buy lower end pvp gear there. VOA also drops pvp sets.

    You need 130 spell pen for pvp, besides that continue gemming for SP.

    If you have access to very high end pve gear, it can be better then pvp gear. Mostly weapons/boots ( as they are crafted and easy to get), and dmg trinkets.

    Since you are going fire/arcane which has low surviability compared to frost, depending on what you are playing with, you can either do 1 of 2things. Wear full resillience (pvp) gear > try to mitigate the damage as much as you can. Wear full pve gear with pvp trinkets/3-4 off set pvp peices to get 130 spell pen to try to get as much damage out as quickly as possible. taylor_13112@hotmail.com if you have questions.
