Official Blizzard Quote:

The reason it's not simply removed is because with this change we are making it so that there's a difference in stats between the normal and elite versions, while it is not nearly as big as the difference between the Malevolent and Tyrannical gear, it's still desirable. The problem that lies in the current system we use is that you have 2 sets of PvP gear (Honor and Conquest) comparatively to there being four levels of gear for PvE (LFR, Valor, Normal and Heroic raid).

They want to make more people PvP eh? Seems to me like the exact opposite here.
So, we will farm the CP gear, then farm so we get all the ELITE gear and when 5.3 hits we would have to keep farming in order to get 2/2 upgrades (they clearly stated the upgrade system is going to be back). Why even bother playing this game anymore?..

Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible cunt...

ME!

They also said the gear upgrade may be different to how it is currently, and definiely won't be in until at least 5.3. We'll have to see how upgrading works

I'm not sure I understand. Are they keeping MALEVOLENT Elite gear in the game or is the topic name just a typo?

They already said that is not 100% sure that they will be bringing back upgrades in 5.3, and with all the negative feedback doubt it

I have a feeling the rating "inflation" system is  going to be crap and so minimal it won't matter... Just play the first couple weeks, then quit for rest of season- saves the hassle from this nonsense.

You hit level 90 on an alt.

You craft Dreadful Gear from a Tailor/Leatherworker/Blacksmith.

You then do BGs to farm Malevolent Gear, which is purchaseable with honor.

You then do arenas or rated battlegrounds for conquest to earn Tyrannical Gear.

Once you hit 27,000 conquest earned for the season, you unlock Elite Tyrannical Gear.

The idea behind it is that you go from 458 > 476 > 493 > 512 in terms of ilvl. Currently, you go from 450 > 458 > 483 > 491 (2/2 upgrades).

It seems to be smoothing out the upgrades a bit. As when the season begins, people will get the full 476 honor set and start to get 493 items, while the people in 491 gear will begin to start to get the 493 items. Then nothing will really change until the 3 month marker with the 512 items being introduced once you reach the 27000 conquest mark.

When someone comes into the season 12 weeks late, they'll be 36 ilvls behind with Malevolent gear, where as currently there is a 33 ilvl difference between someone with dreadful and someone with 2/2 malevolent.

In that sense, the new system is actually worse for people coming into the season 3 months late, but better for people who enter the season before people reach the 27000 conquest marker.

idk what to think of it. it's rewarding people who play the game basically. upgrades didn't seem to work, so they're trying another option?
