Resilience Quick Facts
  • 1% resilience reduces all player-caused damage by 1%
  • 310 resilience rating required per 1% resilience at level 90

PvP Resilience is a PvP stat found on pre-Warlords of Draenor items that reduces damage taken from other players and their pets and minions. It is the counterpart of PvP Power, which increases damage dealt and healing done to other players. Resilience affects only damage taken from players, and is of no benefit against non-player characters. Resilience can be gained through various below-max level external sources, primarily enchantments, gems, PvP rewards and PvP heirlooms.

As of Patch 6.0.2 Resilience is no longer found on max-level PvP gear, and is not innately possessed by characters, essentially removing it from the game.


One percent of resilience reduces damage taken from all player attacks by 1%.

As part of the combat rating system, the amount of resilience rating needed to get a certain amount of resilience increases with level. A higher level player will need more resilience rating to get the same effect as a lower level player. At level 90, players need 310 resilience rating to get 1% of resilience.
