    Upgrade or buy more Mal Gear?

    I started playing a Monk at the start of the year and I absolutely love healing on it. I plan on taking this character into 5.2 and staying with it for RBG/Arena. I do not have full Mal however, maybe about half and with weapons of course. With about 2 or 3 weeks (guessing) left in the current season, should I continue to buy Mal gear or upgrade my current Mal gear seeing as upgrading won't be around in 5.2?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm in nearly the exact same boat as you (except as a WW Monk :P). Anyway, I hear upgrading is best because it's better than the honor Malev next season but slightly worse than Tyrannical. Seeing as weapons don't have a required conquest cap to unlock buying them though, i'd advise upgrading your armor before your weapon unless you plan on zerging up your rating in the first week or two...

    The honor malevolent gear will have more pvp power and resi than even upgraded current malevolent gear. (trinkets might be an exception)
    There is slight stamina and main stat difference though.
    Weapons dont get any changes though, so you might want to upgrade those.

    Buy as much malevolent gear as you can by capping conquest points each week. Also, get ready to have honor cap and jp cap ( to change it to honor ) by 5.2 to buy the rest of the gear. As you know, 5.2 will bring no more upgrades to gear.

    That's not true.
    Upgraded Malv gear will be better than honor malv of next season.
    There's like 400 blue posts saying it.

    def upgrade. pvp power ain't that great compaired to pvp power for dd.

    just to help you out a bit

    2x upgraded malv chest for monk
    http://www.wowhead.com/item=84903
    non upgraded malv chest for honor in 5.2
    http://ptr.wowhead.com/item=91618

    diffrents between them http://ptr.wowhead.com/compare?items....0.0.0.0.0.0.2

    the honor chest has 70 res/pvp power over the upgrade live chest.
    but the upgrade live chest has
    140 Int
    229 Sta
    89 Spi
    141 Armor
    101 Haste (0.24%)

    so the upgrade malv is better simple.
