    Shadowlands PvP Rewards

    Shadowlands PvP Rewards
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    Since we implemented an updated design for Shadowlands PvP gearing into the Beta this week, we’ve seen several requests for a more-detailed explanation of the intentions behind the system.

    Previously in the Shadowlands Beta, we tested a design where Conquest served as both the currency for the Great Vault and the currency for purchasing PvP gear from the vendors, with a weekly cap. From the outset, two of our main goals with PvP gearing in Shadowlands were:

    • Give players more direct control over their gearing by spending earned Conquest at PvP vendors, with an accessible cap and catch-up system.
    • Allow the Great Vault to supplement PvP gearing for Rated players, with a rewards track that is closely aligned to other organized endgame activities (Mythic Keystone dungeons, Raiding).

    However, in Beta testing, we found that because by definition Conquest can’t be earned after hitting the weekly cap, using the same currency for both systems made capping Conquest and earning Conquest gear take much more effort than had been the case in past expansions’ iterations of the Conquest system.

    In the live game, we recently updated Honor to be a currency that is rewarded by all PvP activities, including Rated ones. So in this design, we’ve shifted the Great Vault to require Honor from Rated activities only. Earning Honor through Rated PvP each week will result in a valuable reward from the Great Vault, and that allows us to detach Conquest from the Great Vault and place the Conquest cap much lower.

    This means that players who do Rated PvP will earn their purchases from the PvP vendor much faster, and since Honor from Rated activities is uncapped, those who are really into PvP can continue to progress towards unlocking the second and third Great Vault options after capping Conquest for the week.


    As the Beta winds down, please know that we greatly appreciate all of the testing and player feedback we’ve received since focused PvP testing began in the Shadowlands Beta. Thank you for all of your forum posts and tweets and bug reports and Youtube videos. We’re really looking forward to the PvP scene in this expansion.

    I DO play Alliance for faster queues And even if i play horde, i go mercenary mode!
    Faster queues are king when u just want to PLAY the game and not caring about winning/losing.

    I just want to spam random Bgs and be rewarded for it T_T

    I'm with you! It's the main reason I've stuck to wow for about half of my life. I've got about 400k hk's on my account from many years of just queueing bgs for fun. Wish they'd get some more love.

    There must be a few more, but yeah brain dead content usually aren't that appealing to most gamers.

    Not really, it says "we’ve shifted the Great Vault to require Honor from Rated activities only". Seems like it should just be a different currency then.

    I wouldn't mind it so much - but I just wish they let healers into my team of random BGs. If that happened - it would be a much more fun experience.

    Nope, if you read it you can only unlock the Great Value via Honor you earned in Rated Content only. Battlegrounds will give you nothing.

    So you will either have to do Arena's or Rated Battlegrounds if you want Great Vault rewards. Where as before you could do regular battlegrounds daily and get a Conquest Points for the great vault. So this basically removed that option.

    Well fudge lickers. Third expansion in a row I won't be playing. Not sure why it's such an inconceivable notion that people who play random bgs be able to gear up and not get facerolled by raiders who use 10 addons to play the game for them.

    I would like them a whole lot more if they were actually RANDOM, as of right now there's no point playing them because you just get shit on by premade teams the entire time

    So this crashes Random Battlegrounds participation?

    Looks like I'm starting up my Random Rated Battleground Queues again...

    What're you gonna try to claim raiders actually put in effort in now too? It's a game, get the fuck over it. Oh noes someone has the same gears i have in a videur game mama!! I'm not special no more!!

    I wish some of you would get lives outside of WoW. Then it might turn back into a decent fucking game. Stop looking to a video game for life fulfilment.
