    5.3 PTR: Can't upgrade PVP gear?

    So, right now on the PTR you can upgrade your gear 2x for 250 valour per hit (woot!), and justice gear for 750 justice per. Checked out PVP gear and nada. No upgrade. Not sure if this is just because the PTR hasn't been updated, or if it's a real ongoing thing.






    Patch notes make no mention of it. Is it possible this will only affect PVE gear from now on? I'm not sure how I feel about this. Well. Actually. No. I'll be pissed.

    They're not allowing it because it threw off balance even more-so before with PVP.

    They did say however the lower iLevel PVP items (like the blues and pre current season items) would possibly be available for upgrade.

    IMO it's a good move. It's honestly a good decision to keep the balance between gear, especially in PVP.

    No reason to upgrade the best pvp gear because it all scales to 496 or 498 w/e it was
    I play many games. WoW, Rift, D3, PoE, SC2 I will not criticize your game choice if you don't mine.

    It has been mentioned that you won't be able to upgrade s13 gear, give me a second to find the source.
