Gear Changes
To accomplish the goals of making PvP more accessible and less punishing, gearing more consistent and flexible, and flattening the power curve out over the course of a season, there are some significant changes in the works:
  • 2200 rating requirements removed from all PvP gear. (5.2)
  • Gear will be available in four tiers:
    • Dreadful Gladiator’s gear will be crafted. (5.2)
    • Malevolent Gladiator’s gear, including weapons, will be purchased with Honor Points. (5.2)
    • New tier of PvP items: Tyrannical Gladiator’s gear will be purchased with Conquest Points. (5.2)
    • Tyrannical Gladiator’s gear can be purchased for Honor after 27000 Conquest Points are earned for the season. (5.3)
    • Elite Tyrannical Gladiator’s gear can only be purchased with Conquest Points after 27,000 Conquest Points have been earned for the season. (5.2)

The 2200 rating requirements on gear will be removed in patch 5.2, and when that happens, the only barrier to acquiring top of the line Elite gear will be the 27,000 Conquest Point seasonal currency requirement. While highly rated players will still earn gear more quickly, there won’t be an invisible wall to progression at 2200 rating.



It's just sad... 2k RBG player will have earlier access to T2 than 2,2k Arena player...

so nothing changes then, you still had to get X ammount of conquest earned that seasson to be able to buy t2 gear.

overall a good change imo.

Except for the fact that 2k RBG player (=1700 arena skill) shouldn't have T2 or at least not earlier than 2,2k arena-only player...

Still doesnt change the fact that it changes nothing, it's been like that for a very long time.

I'm all for 3v3 and RBG giving the same rating cap each week, but why are you complaining about something that hasnt changed for a looooong time now? It's not like it's somethnig new they're adding this patch...

1) they already do get it before a 2.2k
2) why are you complaining about a change that levels the playing field in pvp?

Before we were forced to do pve for BiS gear and now we are free from pve but we need to do RBGs (just as lame)

It was a stupid idea @ the first place to reward people with better gear cause they have better ratings. How are the people with lower gear supposed to catch up with them and compete?Blizzard did a good thing here i would rather get an awsome tabard or something for 2.3k+ or so

hope the arena-cap (at least from 3s/5s) gets adjusted, so that you aren't forced to play rbg... but as i know blizzard this probably would never happen

i like how ppl are crying over the change , when most ppl have been complaining about the previous system.  TBH its not that big of a deal it will just even out everything and possibly make it easier to balance classes since most will have the same gear now.

Only shit change is that (if i haven't missed anything) there are no rewards for getting higher rating other then titles , would be nice to have the Elite gear for 2,2k players other then the weapons  or something like the pvp tabards.

I dont even know why they did this 2.2k shit again... Elitism does nothing for pvp but discouraging players that are not that good or want to learn pvp - or like me: coming back to the game and being both :P

If your not that good, you will lose over and over again until you get better.
but should you get punished twice for being worse and trying to learn isn't losing enough?
the learning curve stops when the point where everyone has a better weapon is reached.
And this is the case these days, for most of the playerbase.

On the other hand, when you are a good player, multiple glad or just a 2.2k player. this change doesn't change anything for you, you will still beat all the teams like before. It's just an e-peen thing... is your rating not enough for you to feel better? If not ... grow up.

If I am not mistaken isn't the conq cap being universally 1k a week, and it increases 1k each week.  So if you come in late you can farm all 10k conq points in one week, and be right back on track?

I'm not sure but last time I checked 1000 < 3000 points per week

... You know what I ment, you get conquest points faster from RBG.

2200 rbg player get t2 wep faster than a 2400 arena player, same thing- different numbers.
