So Ive leveled my rogue to 90 last night and was wondering what to do now. He is almost honor caped full and Im not sure wether to gear him up or just wait for the new season. When is 5.2 comming anyways? So, I dont think I have a chance to gear him up decently for arenas this season and will only be wasteing my time. True?
I'd probably try and gear him up since Malevolent will still beat out the new honor gear being introduced but take it slowly. I wouldn't rush your conquest cap if you don't enjoy it. Do 2s with a good frost mage and you will do pretty good.
- Will honor gear be as good as current Malevolent gear?
- Will the current upgraded gear keep its upgrades in 5.2?
- Will there be an honor weapon introduced?
Right now Blizzard has said that the honor gear in 5.2 will have an item level of 476, whereas the current malevolent gear is 483. If the current gear is not scaled down, as well as the upgrades being kept at their current item level, there will be a big gap in gear: 476 gear vs 491 gear which means a 15 item level difference from day 1 in the season. That's pretty fucking huge, and will put a one giant cock block on anyone who plans on rerolling, keeping alts active, starting to pvp in next season, or coming back to the game to pvp.
If no honor weapons are introduced (malovelent t1/t2 gear), and if upgrades are being kept, it will also put a big entry block on competetive pvp, which could easily mean a 15%-30% output difference based on weapon upgrades alone.
Hopefully Blizzard will realise these issues, and make a honor weapon avialable, downscale current gear to honor gear item level (476), and potentially remove/reduce the item level difference the upgrades are making.
My suggestion to you would be to get tier 1 and upgrade it twice (which means capping CP 3-4 weeks), and after that do something else until 5.2 arrives. It will take a lot of time in 2s to cap, because you can meet players in 485 item level + at 1500 playing healer/dps, which makes it almost impossible to beat with no gear (unless you counter comp it). But capping in 2s is mostly the only choice unless you plan to wintrade RBGs. If you are really dedicated you should do this.
If you don't bother getting tier 1 all you can hope is that Blizzard will make a pvp weapon buyable for honor.
Yeah cheating always works, in my opinion you should be banned from here for even suposing something like that.
I should probably haven't written it like that. Easy to misunderstand, and I am not suggesting to wintrade. I meant if you are really dedicated you should be capping points every week, and 2s is the only solution, unless you are one of those wintrade guys in RBGs. I don't wintrade, but a lot of people do, because it's the only way catch up in gear, assuming you aren't being boosted by geared players in the 3v3 bracket.
