Should I Spend Honor on PvP Gear Between Season 10 and 11? - Why It's Bad!
November 30, 2011
A reminder regarding honor gear and purchases in the s10 to s11 interseason
With 4.3 hitting live I’d like to give you all a heads up and remind you about what new gear will be available to you from different currencies and keep you from making the mistake many of us did in the s9 to s10 transition.
Last season many of us spent our honor on iLvl 365 Vicious gear that were made available to us through honor after the season ended only to have them replaced by half a tier higher iLvl 371 eqvivalents introduced as Season 10 Vicious gear. This very same thing will happen in this interseason, our current 384 Ruthless will be available for purchase through honor points but when season 11 starts they will be replaced by a 390 ilvl counterpart, the season 11 Ruthless gear.
In addition to this the 371 ilvl season 10 Vicious gear will become craftables replacing the current Bloodthirsty patterns and of course the season 11 Cataclysmic Gladiator’s gear will be implemented. Which will leave you with the following gear for the following currencies;
- Vicious ilvl 377 gear which is crafted
- Ruthless ilvl 390 gear for honor points
- Cataclysmic ilvl 403 gear for conquest points
So remember to not buy any gear inbetween the seasons that isnt labelled with season 11 in order to not end up buying gear which will become obsolete when the new season begins!
The only reason you should want to go ahead and spend the honor now, is if you cannot craft or afford to buy the crafted gear, and are in absolutely terrible gear. This is still a matter of a quality of life decision. You will be grinding for gear this week, and then grinding later to replace it.
