Thread: how long does it take to catch up on S14 pvp gear?

1. how long does it take to catch up on S14 pvp gear?

I quit wow for half year, planning to get back in game around thanksgiving, i know s14 already started for a month, usually i am not going to join game mid season (i mostly PVP BG/RBG), but i read now you can catch up in pvp gear mid game? any detail about that? how long does it take to catch up?

thanks

2. I think you get like 5k conquest cap or something

3. theoritically you will only catch up at a later point in the season.

the reason is that an active player caps 1800 (2200 if he wins a RPG game) conquest each week,
while the inactive player only gets a bonus of 1000 conquest per week.

So assuming you need 20000-25000 conquest points to get BIS in every slot, a returning player would literally catch up around 5 months into the season.

4. The formula for calculating your cap is:

Weekly cap = (Week of season - 1) * 1000 – Conquest points earned this season + Cap received from your current rating

We are in week four of the season so if you started now you would have a cap of 4800 (5200 if you did a RBG). A player who has capped in arena every week with no RBGs and has the base conquest cap (1800) would have 7200 conquest by now so if you capped this week then you wouldn't be too far behind.
