They said the new elite gear will just be a prestige upgrade and with this itemlvl cap stuff I guess there will be no point in replacing tyrannical t1 or male 2/2 t2 except for the styles.

Once the 27,000 Conquest Point seasonal currency requirement is reached, players will be able to purchase Tyrannical Gladiator’s gear with Honor Points

So you'll be able to purchase that on your other chars that has not yet met the requirement? Or is it only for the one char you got it on?
Also how will honor gear vs male 2/2/tyrannical be, no different?

okay so far as I'm aware, the current gear will be 493, then the elite gear will be 496.  So yes, when you upgrade to elite you get 3 ilvls.  That's not huge, but it is an obvious upgrade when you go all the way across the board.  May not be understanding your question, but so far as I know, yes there is a difference.  The difference will be 3 ilvl's.

If you are asking about the fact that t2 weapon from LAST season is 498 ilvl, I would assume they will either drop that down a few ilvls (below 496) or ignore it and allow those who have t2 from last season to keep it for all of this season as well.

edit: just reread, conquest being UPPED to 496, elite gear also 496.  So yeah.  There will be 0 difference other than epeen in any upgrade to elite.

If thats the case, one of the greatest changes in the history of pvp was just made

Don't think you can gear alt once you reach 27k points. But it works for off-specs of course.

Fml that would have been so great...

Edit: Tbh why don't they make it like that though? I realise maybe you haven't quite earned it on your alt but its nothing else than a long farm to come up to 27k anyways, it would increase acitvity on the ladders as they seem to care about now. It would make so that people who have alts can compete on them without farming their asses off for that cap on loads of chars.

The difference is not only a "label", they are cosmetically different. They will also have a rating requirement in 5.3 which gives them a bit more prestige and they will be something that you will need to aim for a certain rating to achieve

The changing of Conquest to Honor points after 27000 is the smartest thing ever.

I follow a lot of what GC and Holinka say on Twitter, so here are a few answers for things people asked here (that were confirmed in tweets):

1. Yes elite is just cosmetic - it will have 496 ilvl
2. reg gear is being brought up to 496 in the patch as well
3. They are aware of rbg tanks maybe favoring pve gear so they are looking at ways to fix this
4. Honor gear will hit harder than heroic pve gear in a pvp setting, due to the amount of pvp power (pretty awesome IMO)
5. In future seasons, elite gear will again have 2.2k requirement on it, so it will be a prestige thing.  This season it's too late to go back so some players will have access to the elite gear before 5.3 is released and it will still have no rating on it.

I think that covers all questions, feel free to ask more if I missed anything!

Looks like Blizzard is (starting) going the GW2 route; cosmetic/fluff for PvP rating prestige rather than better ilvl gear. Fully support the change in philosophy, will be interesting to see where they go with this.

Tyrannical t1 is 498 ilvl with equal stats meaning it's not better or worse than malevolent t2.
