Can't wait for dextroy videos after Shadowlands is out :).
Let me clear it out for anyone,first of all Honor level and Honor are 2 different things,one is just the Honor level we got now and we can keep leveling,other one is new currency used to buy honor gear and upgrade Honor and Conquest gear(Yes Conquest gear is gonna get upgraded by Honor).Honor gear can be upgraded up to 190 which by my math it actually does make it BiS for many slots before Week one for Season 1 in Shadowlands.About Conquest all we know is it starts at 190 and it is going to be upgraded by Honor currency.We dont know by how many levels they are gonna get upgraded and we can only assume upgrades will be available when you reach each of raiting points as Challenger/Rival/Duelist/Elite.PS: For PvE players,yes for now it seems if you want full max Ilvl before first week of raiding you got to get fully upgraded Honor PvP gear
remember the pve players that said they dont want a specific pvp stats, so they dont have to farm pvp gear to play pvp.Well now enjoy farming pvp to play pvein addition 5 ilvl is suddenly more important than being stuck with a covenant
thats cool, even if i dont do that mutch pvp i can pick one item with stats i like and just put all my honor i get into that item then, nice
So we are basically going to jump 30-50 iLvl at the start of this expac. Great... I still won't care about gear then, Torghast it is.
Nice, make pvp gearing great again
As long as I can do war mode invasion/incursion type quests and get the occasional gear upgrade (like the 500 conquest reward on live) without having to do arena, I'm happy with this.
If they add something like this for PVE I'd be happy
No, the currency is called "Shadowlands PvP Honor". Honor to level your honor level up remains unchanged.Now that PvP is back to the way it should be they should rename the PvP experience points from honor the something else and your "honor level" becomes your "PvP level" or some other more interesting name that doesn't conflict with the currency.Bottom line is that PvP gearing is once again enjoyable!
nothing is required
Assuming you can get enough honor to upgrade a piece before raid release, that is. Conquest used to be capped, so I imagine honor will be the same.
this pvp gearing system is even worse than bfa.nobody in their right mind would run 50+ BGs to max out ONE piece of gear. i much rather run mythic 0 dungeons for gear that is 7ilvls lower, trust me.
