  • A blog with additional information and explanation for the reasoning behind PvP changes will be available very soon.
  • All characters now have a base Resilience of 65%.
  • Resilience has been removed from most PvP gear.
  • Season 13 Tyrannical gear had their item levels increased to ilevel 496, up from ilevel 493.
  • Season 13 Tyrannical Elite gear had their item levels decreased to ilevel 496, down from ilevel 512.
  • Battlegrounds, Rated Battlegrounds, and Arenas now have an ilevel cap. All gear will be scaled down to ilevel 496.

means like it will work like in challenge mode, all gear you wear in arena will have its stats scaled down as if it was ilvl 496 so if you go in arena with a heroic pve ring item level 540 something it will be scaled down to 496

the only issue I see is gem slots on pve gear

It means that if you enter an arena, bg, or rbg and you have a piece of gear that has an ilvl higher than 496, it will be reduced to 496.

This should help reduce the entry barrier for pvp but it also reduces the incentive to play.  I'm waiting to hear their solution to this.

It's actually really good, completely eliminates PvE items in arenas since not a single PvE item of the same ilvl is better then a pvp item of the same ilvl.

What that basically means is that the highest ilvl that you can have in arena is 496. Therefore, if you are equipping Heroic PvE items, they will be downscaled in ilvl (and stats) to 496.

Resilience has been removed from most PvP gear.

I am interested in how this will interact with PvE gear tbh.

So the new elite gear is now purely cosmetic. Really good change but it was moronic it made it live as "item upgrade 2.0" in the first place.

Rest looks pretty good, I'm willing to bet Resil will still be present on trinkets to help curb the usage of PvE trinkets in PvP as well as the down scaling. I'm actually excited to play this season. They just need to make RBG and Arena caps equal and merge some battlegroups now.

well I don't know about that, since resilience is almost fully removed off gear won't gem slots on the pve gear be very valuable? the neck with double sockets for example

from most PvP gear.

I assume that means the main sets since they have the set bonuses which makes them attractive enough, resilience & pvp power on offsets would make them better then downscaled heroic pve pieces.

you don't know that, if resil and pvp power gems still exist you could socket the neck with 640 resil.

I haven't checked but pretty sure the pvp neck doesn't have 640 resil

edit: but overall the difference will be minimal and it solves the problem of having ilvl 550 something pve gear vs ilvl 512 pvp

What this means is that you can either pve or pvp and still have the same gear more or less.

Eg a heroic pve raider will have almost the same stats as a pvp geared player while in the arena. This means you can play pvp without rly worrying for gear even if you explicitly raid. Really neat.

mye but it's kind of fucked up in one way since you can get 496+ pve gear much easier currently then you can get 496 pvp so dunno..guess they'll fix it

No pvp power on pve gear so people who try and use pve gear wont do nearly as much damage though
