Long-time WoW PVPer here that just restarted his sub in November and is obviously behind in gear. I have full honor gear and 2 malevolent pieces (head/shoulders), but now I need to save for two weeks to have 7250 conquest for the season for my weapon and now I'm kind of "stuck". Should I just hoard conquest and honor right now or continue trying to gather Malevolent pieces as I can hoping to hit the ground running in 5.2? I'm running into a massive gear imbalance right now and with these imposed "must acquire 7250 conquest before you can get a weapon" roadblocks it's quite frustrating in the arena.
Any advice would be helpful and I'll be happy to send you my character and server to look him over if you would like.
