I might actually start pvping so i can do rated bgs with my guild now.
yeah, I always like coming here over the official forums. The Official forums has tons of trolls, griefers etc. As for the pvp changes it seems good i just wonder how many ppl that are going to complain. Besides its not like ppl are going to be getting the high end pvp gear from this (arena pvp gear)
I'm really, really OK with this. Since my server just about never runs RBGs and I've barely been able to find arena partners, I'll be more than happy to run random BGs for conquest points, so I can actually keep up with people on gear.
Its not like everyone is going to swim in conquest gear two weeks after patch. It takes like 3 full weeks to even get enough conq points for a two-hander (which prolly will have a requirement anyway). And (good) pvpers will still have the elite gear to themselves.Personally i love the 2v2 arena bracket, and this is not gonna effect me much, but it will allow me or my arena buddy to gain points even those weeks one of us aint online.
FL=50 VPs per bossHCs=140 VPsDS= 100 VPs per bossLOL?
Interesting. I hope this change will attract many weak PvErs and new 85s into BGs, ive got some achies left to be done.
i hope i can get the same with valor points system - no gearcheck for getting cap at valor points, just join a normal ;) but thats just a dream ^^
The CP changes are awesome. The VP changes worry me. The more we rely on boss drops, the more we have a potential to create a system like this:How do you get gear? Kill a boss.How do you kill a boss? Get in a raid.How do you get in a raid? Get gear.Not fun.
I think this is essentially putting bg's in line with the weekly limit on valor point gains via heroics, I guess for people just returning or who just recently hit 85 setting foot in pvp with their current gear is a deterrent. You can run heroics in pvp gear with only a slight reduction in performance, you can't however do pvp with heroic blue gear and hope to stand an chance against someone in full conquest gear.I know that people might question the whole pvp gear in a pve instance but my battlegroup....well I'm less than impressed with my repair bill after some of my zandalar runs.
This is a good change. PVP should be about skill not gear. However, I do wish there was an alternative way to gain a large amount of honor such as BGs. Maybe Unrated Arena Skirmishes that reward honor, say 150 honor per win. An ilvl MMR would determine your opponents.
this is a very nice changewas praying for something like thisi as a prot paladin with pve guild cant do RBG's and it's hard to find 5v5 or a 3v3 partners in my server so was stuck with mostly honor gear.and oh yes no one wana go 2's with a retri or prot paladin cause every1 want a mage or a rogue . :-)
Add the MoP resilience change with 4.3 too and you've got a deal, I'll start PvP'ing again!
