Season 12 Sets Part IV: Malevolent Elite

This is the final article our series highlighting the Season 12 PvP sets to be released in Mists of Pandaria. Part IV focuses on the Malevolent Gladiator Elite sets.

            Part I: Contender’s Sets (ilvl 450)
            Part II: Dreadful Gladiator’s (ilvl 458)

            Part IV: Malevolent Gladiator’s Elite (ilvl 483)

As with the regular Malevolent Gladiator’s sets, Elite armor pieces are of epic quality and item level 483. The regular and Elite armor items have identical stats, the difference between them is purely cosmetic. On the other hand, Elite weapons are item level 490, twenty item levels higher than the regular Malevolent weapons. As such, the Elite weapons have both a different colouration and higher stats.

Each 5-piece Malevolent Elite class set is accompanied by a matching belt and boots, but not bracers. All armor pieces may be traded with a vendor, at the cost of regular Malevolent pieces, once a player has achieved at certain rated battleground or arena rating.



Elite Malevolent Gladiator’s items may be purchased from two vendors, one for each faction, both of whom are located in Pandaria:

AllianceEthan Natice is located atop the Serpent’s Spine wall in the Valley of the Four Winds, close   to a flight point named “The Lion’s Redoubt”.

HordeAcon Deathwielder is also located on the Serpent’s Spine, but in Kun-Lai Summit. The nearest    flight point is called “Hellscream’s Fist”.

After having obtained the required arena or battleground rating, the total cost for the regular seven Malevolent items for trade comes to 13200 Conquest Points, broken down into 2200 each for the head, chest and legs, and 1650 each for the shoulders, gloves, belt and boots.

Season 12 Sets Part I: Contender’s

This is the first article in a series of four, showcasing the Season 12 PvP sets that will be arriving in Mists of Pandaria. Part I focuses on the Contender’s sets.

            Part I: Contender’s Sets (ilvl 450)
            Part II: Dreadful Gladiator’s (ilvl 458)
            Part III: Malevolent Gladiator’s (ilvl 483)
            Part IV: Malevolent Gladiator’s Elite (ilvl 483)

There are eight Contender’s sets in total, each comprised of eight rare quality item level 450 pieces. The sets are not class-specific, but are infact crafted by either Tailors, Leatherworkers, or Blacksmiths, in the same way that Catacylsm had craftable entry-level PvP gear.

Interestingly, unlike previous crafted PvP items, this set is actually labelled as being a part of a PvP Season, with the green “Season 12” tag in the tooltip.


Each of the Contender’s sets fills a specific combat role, according to each armor type. The sets are listed below, alongside their role, and seperated by their respective crafting profession:

Tailoring
– Satin (Spirit Cloth Priests)
– Silk (Caster Cloth DPS)

Leatherworking
– Leather (Physical Leather DPS)
– Wyrmhide (Leather Casters)
– Dragonscale (Physical Mail DPS)
– Scale (Mail Casters)

Blacksmithing
– Revenant (Physical Plate DPS)
– Spirit (Holy Paladins)

The Tailoring and Leatherworking sets currently require at least 590 skill in their respective professions, in order to create the full set. For some reason, the Blacksmith crafted sets only require 575 at most to create.
