If you’re reading this thread you already know what’s up. You have to play PvE in order to play PvP. Yes, to a certain degree and yes, PvE also wants something in PvP, but that’s not the point. Point is if I want to reach high ratings and if it’s going to be locked behind gear then at least make gearing up better in PvP. I could go on an entire rant with various examples to prove my point, but that’s beside the main focus of the thread.
Here’s my idea: add a system that actually uses honor. In a more deeper sense you cash in honor to unlock ranks. Rank 14 allows you to buy the top end gear (gear is bought using conquest) whilst something like Rank 1 will allow you to buy blues.
Throwing this out there since I see SL’s vendor having potential, but it isn’t the hero we need.
