Last time I gave a list of all the items that were available for purely honor points (i.e. pvp gear for honor) and without any ratings attached to it. After having dabbled a bit in PVP recently, I've found that a few games of arena a week with a good friend was pretty fun, and had done slightly further research upon the types of gear available. I've also completed making a list of all the wow honor and arena gear for you to use!
Thankfully, unlike end game PvE, PvP gear is really really simple, having only a handful of choices at the most for each slot, and having all the possible gear being available from only two vendors. Of course, I'm discounting all the hardcore PvPers that PvE to get vold'rethar to be used inside Arenas.
The two vendors of which I speak of lies within Dalaran Sewers, rather close to the arena master in the region, and also the faction specific gear vendor, which will be in Orgrimmar or Stormwind respectively.
The other by which I'll go about this would be to start with the physical locations by which you can acquire them, and then by pure honor, followed by rating requirements.
For people who are just starting off, I had previously recorded all the pure honor items in a post over here (with pictures), but I'll do a short recap.
Orgrimmar is where you go to purchase all the pure honor items, and you can purchase the Hateful Tier Pieces for a total of 212,000 honor points
If you are interested in their individual prices, they are
For 31600 Honor
For 49600 Honor
Other means of acquiring this include paying half arena points and half honor, or by burning emblems of valor into the respective gears. There is also always Vault of Archavon 10 lucky drops.
From the same area, you can also purchase all the Deadly Offset gear for pure honor. Besides Emalon 10 drops, this is the only way to purchase those items
Their prices are as follows
For 31600 Honor
For 38000 Honor
For 49600 Honor
Now that you've gotten a bit of starter gear, and perhaps you've dabbled in a few arena games and traded a bit of ratings, what do you have in store for you in the future?
With climbing ratings, you'll be able to start accessing deadly series tier gear!
In order of ratings, here's how they line up:
Deadly Relics/Sigils/Idols/Librams at 1250 rating, 350 Arena points, 6400 Honor
Deadly Gloves at 1300 rating, 400 Arena Points, 7200 Honor
Deadly Legs at 1350 rating, 700 Arena Points, 12000 Honor
Deadly Chest at 1400 rating, 700 Arena points, 12000 Honor
Deadly Head at 1450 rating, 700 Arena points, 12000 Honor
Deadly Shoulders at 1500 rating, 550 Arena Points, 9000 Honor
If you've reached all the way up here, or even halfway there, you should probably consider the arena-less honor currency only gear purchasable in Org/Stormwind that requires rating and honor points only.
Furious Gear (Rating requirement, Honor required only)
Furious Wrists 1400 rating, 39400 Honor
Furious Waist 1450 rating, 62000 Honor
Furious Feet 1500 rating, 62000 Honor
Furious Neck 1550 rating, 47400 Honor
Furious Ring 1550 rating, 47400 Honor
Furious Cloak 2000 rating, 47400 Honor
With the gear and a good team composition, you're probably on your way up the ranks, so you'll want to look at the gear buyable with arena points at that level of rating too!
Furious Offhands, 1850 rating, 1100 Arena Points
Offhand weapons counts under this category
Furious Wands/Librams, relics etc, 1850 rating, 1150 Arena points
Furious Weapons Tier 1(2handed), 1850 rating, 1400 Arena points, 50000 Honor
Bows count as 2H in terms of costs
Furious Weapons Tier 1(1handed), 1850 rating, 1200 Arena points, 35000 Honor
Furious Weapons Tier 2, All requires 2350 rating
2 Handed, 4250 Arena Points
1 Hand caster, 3585 Arena Points
1 Hand melee, 3000 Arena Points
Side Arms, 1245 Arena Points
Furious Tiers (ilvl 232)
Gloves 1600 rating, 1300 Arena Points

Chest 1700 rating, 2150 Arena Points
Head 1750 rating, 2150 Arena Points
Shoulders 1800 rating, 1750 Arena Points
And that should be a complete list of all the mainstream pvp gear in the game at the moment, don't hesitate to tell me if i've made any mistakes in the compilation!
