    Chest farming is probably the best way to go about obtaining those shoulders.

    In the case of a plate toon wouldn't wearing a helm just be better in general?

    What about something like Keeshans Headband or the Soul Trader Head Wrap?

    for horde I'd put Kalecgos' Gift, unless you're focusing more on bg's and ilvl

    Edited out the Love is in the Air dungeon necks as they are no longer available.

    Yes, if you do not have a armor specific helm it would be best to get LFH. I will do some more research on the 10% stat bonus but I believe that it is necessary to have your armor specialization in every slot.

    Okay cool. What Im wondering is if the headband will count since its just a "head" item and has no armor association.

    I ran a test to see if there were stat differences for gear... There are :\

    Balance Druid Full Leather: Intellect (164) | Stamina (259) | Armor (97)
    Balance Druid w/ Misc. Helmet (white quality): Intellect (156) | Stamina (246) | Armor (92)

    Even with a cloth BoA helmet on the stats still match that of a white misc. helm (top hat, keeshans headband, etc.). So yes.. Plate toons are shit out of luck at level 20 since the first available helmet is at level 26.

    Oops I forgot one thing though. Wearing any helmet is better than no helmet at all (stats drop even more). So as a f2p plate toon: LFH or anything else really.

    You are correct there are no helms available for level 20's, not even the http://www.wowhead.com/item=90896/straw-hat as we can't get rep with http://www.wowhead.com/npc=58707/old-hillpaw.
    However, fingers crossed if Blizz scale the Hallows End boss, we could have access to..........http://www.wowhead.com/item=117355/the-horsemans-horrific-hood&bonus=615. We'll see if they scale some of the other events before then but this could be a possibility for them sad Plate wearing F2P's that missed out on the Legion event!

    That is a massive bummer about the Straw Hat.. If only there was a way!! I think they need to add some green quality helmets to dungeons and BoE sets..

    Paladin (Retribution)
    Rogue (Outlaw)
    Warrior (Fury)

    This is an instanced pvp guide. Stat priority does not matter.

    I've been farming for the Greenweave gloves on my priest and after many many many rares I've had them drop. Since stat priorities isn't a thing in instanced BG's it's not a problem that they're: of the Whale (5 Stam + 5 Vers)? http://www.wowhead.com/item=9771/greenweave-gloves

    Just found out about this item but would Emil's Brand (ilvl 32, speed 3.1) be a good 2nd hand for alliance warriors? Wowhead says its obtainable from a lvl 19 quest in Ashenvale "Insane Druid" for Palladin and Warriors

    Outside of Battlegrounds sure. But in Battlegrounds weapon speed is king... There are 2 options: Bloodied Arcanite Reaper (3.8) or Haunting Blade (3.8).

    So, for world pvp stats is the focus and not the ilvl ?

    ilvl does nothing in open world. Obviously if you have the invasion gear you have a serious advantage over anyone else but stats > ilvl world pvp and ilvl for battlegrounds.
