Farming random BGs on my alt to gear fast, but unlike on my main warrior the honor i gain for wins isnt nowhere near this time.
I used to get about 700 per win which seems pretty alright considering how much of that you gotta farm to even enter arena. But today only around 200-300 per win??? WTF? thats not even close to enough for gearing. specialy half season in when there is no form of catching up fast …
you are right about that, but since this expa is absolut slowest gear farm ever and they are trying to pull more ppl into bgs. Maybe increase the BG rewards double as catchup, and same go for arena.
Takes forever fillin up that cap bar with honor gear only, so maybe some conquest from bgs could help ppl feel more able-…
What you say sounds bad but you are absolutly right. You enter arena at full honor gear of 197 item level and get smacked around by 226 players who just sell boosts.
This system made it harder for all players to push their rating on alt playin PVP only. I myself like to play around 2200 most of expansions without any high problems.
This expansion I started to play very late, and as Warrior was always my main, seems kinda chunky meeting only higher geared players or gladiators with low gear and having aids time pushing to 1800 just cause the gear diff is absolutly messed up.
That’s more due to the ilvl- and power gap than the currency not being granted that much in unrated content. I am all for better gearing for the non-high rated players (like me) but much more conquest from unrated bgs? I don’t think that is the way to go.
Mwa, as long as the unranked gear is 200 it won’t help much anyways. 200 instead of 197 won’t do much against 215+ players.
I’d say that honor gear should start at like rank 4-5/7. 197 is pretty much the bare minimum by now. Having to upgrade all the way from 151(ish?) is half of the problem.
The other Conquest problem wouldn’t be such a big deal if the power-gap wasn’t that big. Since I think the current catch-up is not thát bad, we actually are able to get all the conquest from the entire season - that is a big step forward compared to earlier expansions (pre-BFA). However, even if you get full 200 or 207 gear, you still get slaughtered.
Thát is a problem they should fix. Make Honor gear viable again by reducing the gap in power (and/or ilvl).
