Is completly and absolutely retarded. Thanks Blizzard! In all honesty PvPers are forced to exchange their set TWICE in a single season both with the same currency. Let alone the fact that collecting two entire sets with conquest point will take an incredible ammount of of those, it forces people to buy gems, enchants and other stuff twice just because they are doing PvP.
Blizzard is completly screwing over PvP players for the sake of keeping PvE people and their dirty little hands of PvP gear so they can't use it to bypass the gear grind they would have to undergo normally.
And that is not even taking into consideration that with 5.3~ the upgrade option is most likely coming back. Something that is a complete non issue for PvE people while going to be nigh impossible for PvP people having to buy two sets for conquest points.
The only solution to this would be making the elite gear buyable with honor once 5.3 hits and one has earned 27k conquest points. Change like these make me really loath Blizzard.
