550 conquest max per week, 5000 to be able to purchase a weapon (5000 req removed, woo!)

Blizzard hates PvP and wants you to stop asking for PvP changes because they want to remove it. More at 5.


No it wasn’t lmao. Please don’t spread misinformation.

Strong words for someone with 300 arena wins and 1550 max rating.
You couldn’t gear through PvP if you wanted to.
Mind you, you don’t lose rating until 1500.

He’s obviously trolling, to have 1550 max rating after 300 arena wins, and probably 600 losses on top of that, shameful, must be pretty bad.

Ok you’re right.

That sucks for PVPers, but it’s heroic raid tier 226 gear and you get all your weekly great vault gear too, so it’s not that bad.

Are you telling me you could buy your conquest weapons first season? No, you had to wait until you got a certain amount of conquest before you could buy them. That cap was the time gate and around week 4 or 5 people could buy them. You could buy other conquests pieces and time your conquest to get a weap. Like for real dude :joy:

Here’s the quote for you lazy people.

So people dedicating their time to it don’t increase more. It’s 550 conquest a week, per week. No way to increase it.

5,000 conquest required for an achievement to earn weapons.

  1. Whole. Weeks. To get weapons. Weapons used to be a week two thing. Maybe a week 3. The points you earned were gated by how high or low your rating was. Earn a higher rating. Get your weapons earlier.

No such thing now. Now you just sit with a honour weapon you’re also time gated to upgrade. Or be forced to pve just to enjoy pvp.

The problem with this is PvE players aren’t forced to PvP for anything.


True, there’s vault, but it’s RNG again, and only 1 piece of the 3 piece choice is of highest ilvl for your rating. If you can upgrade the other 2 choices for free, then it can work.

Well since you never hit over 1550 rating, you couldn’t buy anything for conquest, it was always for some actual ratings. So honor gear is your tool.

Or do some M+ or raiding and get an easy weapon week 1, afterwards go PVP like crazy.

That is not great

Great assumptions but that still doesn’t change anything about how the system works.

This was not the case at all.

The upgrades for conq gear are for honor which might as well be for free.
I think the system will be picking one of three conq items you want a week + getting to buy targeted ones slowly, and with honor gear getting better as renown improves, pvp gearing will be kinda viable. It wont be as good as PVE but it never is is it.

What assumptions? Go to your achievements, 300 ranked wins achi, and only 1550 rating. And you can’t lose rating until 1500. So you never hit 1700 rating in your 300 wins ( and at least 300 losses)

Do you lose on purpose or are you just that bad?

Then you need to get lucky to get a weapon, 4000 conquest is too much, 2500 would be upper limit for how long it should take to get a weapon, that’s 5 weeks.

Buddy I’m not the one crying about not getting my pvp weapons on the first week lol, keep going it’s making me laugh!

People are neglecting to mention the multiple, upgradable conquest rewards you can earn each week via the vault.

Maybe a weapon can drop in the weekly cache?

You come in my thread, trolling about how pvpers should pve to get gear as excuse for poor pvp vendor design, and then are surprised when I point out how riddiculously bad you are at pvp to not get over 1550 rating (50 rating over no rating loss for losing) in over 600 arena matches.

We had people getting cloaks for several weeks in BFA, so there better be some bad luck protection for weapons in the cache.

Exactly, but they don’t want to bother with doing the expansion and literally just want to pvp all day.

You. Can. Choose. A. Weapon.

PvErs have to pray a weapon drops for them. My friend went LITERALLY The entirety of Patch 8.3 without a new weapon because one never dropped for them. THey only ever had an emissary weapon.

At least you’re guaranteed one.

On top of that, you will get the Great Vault rewards based on your rating, and GASP that can have a weapon too.

Are you sure? I read the article and all it says is that the cap increases by 550 each week. I mean, judging from past things they’ve done, it does make sense as a catchup mechanic, but the way this is worded it doesn’t say anything about a catch up at all. I think it is additive.

First season of what? Which expansion?

You could earn weapons by week two or three for the majority of conquest vendor weapons existing. With arena points the grind was longer but still not even remotely 10 weeks.
