    Non-Hytbold 85 armour

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering what other armour sets there are that are good other than the Hytbold sets? I want to relax from grinding for a while and head into the moors. Are the crafted sets any good or is there another set that requires less of a grind?

    Thanks for any help

    Not sure of the exact med/mark cost, but you can barter for your lvl 85 BG class armor with just medallions and marks at a skirmish camp. Mind you they require 4 pieces worn to get the bonus, but they're fine and cheap enough if you just want stats.

    If set bonuses are what you want, do each Erebor raid once and you can barter Seals for one of your classes 3 Erebor sets (or mix'n'match for set bonuses that you want from each of the 3).

    Crafted stuff is great. Can be best in slot if you get the right recipe and crit.

    Lots of non-set-pieces are Bind on Equip, you should see plenty of 85 teals on the AH.

    Edit: Oh... if you want specifically to play in the Moors then you will very much need one of your class's 3 Moors armor sets. Really what you need is the Audacity stat that each piece of PvMP armor grants a slice of. If what you want is gear to PvMP in, just keep playing in the Moors. That's how you earn Commendations (which are required for your class PvMP/Audacity sets).

    I'm a bit mystified. If going to the moors (and at all serious or don't have a death wish) you need to grind out 6 pieces of moors armor anyway for the audacity rating... The crafted sets are OK, the various teal armor pieces that sell cheaply on AH are OK, but TBH nothing matches the 4 piece hyboldt healer set (with 2 perseverence) for non-moors generic use IMHO.

    Barad-Guldur Armor Sets (Level 65 & 85 Versions). No deeds required to acquire this armor. Available at the 'Classic' NPC in any Skirmish Camp.

    Erebor Instances Armor Sets (T1 & T2 Versions). T1 Set requires completion of Erebor T1 Deed, same goes for the T2 Set. You must have the T1 Set in order to barter for the T2 Version. Available at the 'Heavy/Medium/Light Armor' NPCs at any Skirmish Camp.

    PVP Armor Sets. These are gated behind Ranks, and cost a decent amount of commendations. Highly recommended for Moors play but will NOT greatly handicap you in anyway. Available at class specific NPCs at Glan Vraig in the Moors.

    Various Crafted Armor. Stats are not as good as raid sets (except for Horselord Helms & Shoulders), but they are perfectly fine for soloing or participating in T1 Raids/Instances.

    Loot Armor. This does not include Horselord Recipe Drops. Not as good as Crafted or Raid Armor, but still decent enough to get the job done solo & in T1 Raids/Instances.

    Note, the moors armor is no longer gated by rank you just need commendations. If you find a halfway decent raid you should be able to get at least a piece a night and if you actually find a good raid and your server is well populated for pvp you could get a couple pieces in a night.
