In patch 9.2 PvP Gear Shadowlands kicks off the third PVP season, where the developers have added new rewards, reworked some accessories and added a new brawl map. In addition, Blizzard made a minor adjustment to specializations and brought back the long-awaited class item system that works in the arena.
Traditionally, players will start their march through the rating table from scratch. Again, you will have to look for a pack of 2-3 people to raise the rank to the “Gladiator”, open unique rewards, transmogs and mounts. Everyone knows that PVP is much more difficult to master than raids or Mythic dungeons. Battles take place on small maps against real opponents, so it is impossible to predict the actions of the enemy.
You can spend a lot of time mastering PVP, learn the features of all classes and still not achieve the desired result. Or you can leave it to the pros to make raising your rating seem like a cakewalk led by an experienced coach or player who has been among the first to take the Gladiator title for several seasons.
PVP Shadowlands Season 3 Major Changes
A New Solo Shuffle for 6 players – 2 healers and 4 fighters. Battles take place between groups of 3 by 3, but for this it is not necessary to collect a pack in advance. You can stand in a single search, the system itself will select other party members. Teams are shuffled, after which the battle begins. Depending on the results, you get a reward – points of honor and conquest. Solo Shuffle is available on an ongoing basis, not on a scheduled basis.
PvP Gear Shadowlands – Purchasing Items from Vendors
Gear can be purchased from brokers located in the central city of Oribos. NPC Zo’kuul sells items of the first rank, which can be bought for honor (ilvl 203). Next to him is another vendor, Zo’sorg, who sells higher-ranked equipment for conquest points (ilvl 249).
In the future, you can upgrade purchased items from the vendor Zo’dash to level 7 without being tied to the rating system. The last two levels will have to be unlocked as you advance through the ranks of the third season.
Here are the main items you can buy from the Honor Merchant if you want to play PVP:
- One-Hand weapons cost 1,325 Honor;
- Two-Hand weapons cost 1,750 Honor;
- Trinkets cost between 525 and 700 Honor;
- Amulets/Back/Wrist/Rings cost 525 Honor;
- Head/Chest/Legs cost 875 Honor.
The main consumable currency for upgrading items is Honor. You get it for participating in rating battles even if you lose. From rank 1 to rank 4, the upgrade does not require certain conditions. Starting from rank 5, the character must have 44 fame. To upgrade an item to the upper limit, you need to get 59 level of fame.
Equipping a character in PVP gear at the initial levels is not difficult. Just go to the arena or BG, you can even get into an automatic queue where there is no rating. Once you’ve built up enough honor, buy all the necessary items, accessories, and trinkets.
But further problems may arise. Conquest points have a weekly cap. It rises every Wednesday, adding 700 units. To buy all the items and upgrade to the maximum rank, you will need several thousand points. But even after accumulating the required amount, you will not be able to upgrade items to the upper limit. You need to achieve a certain rating in PVP, which not everyone can do. But if you are planning to play and get PvP gear WoW at the expense of boosters, then it will take much less time.
