    Default Should I Buy My Rank 1 Gear Now?

    Just wondering because I have 30k favor and I plan on PvPing when I get to level 50 (level 37 currently).


    Don't get stuck in the hay.

    Buy the level 40 mount, or the 50 if you already have the 40.

    Yes, because in the end you will first need to buy that before you can go to the rank 2-6 items. (Technically the rank 3 and 5).

    Yes, with the new trade in system the days of 'should I skip directly to R2 or R3' are mostly over.

    Make sure to spend the favor before you hit the 150k cap.

    I'd say yes, buy all the PvP stuff you can (except the mount) with Favor. Since the Favor cap was increased and you can buy Marks anytime, and you need Marks for all of the higher than R1 gear, you aren't likely to cap on PvP currency anymore while getting to R8 no matter what lower than 50 toon level you start saving Favor at. Go look at the gear prices, it increases each rank. So if you can get the faster mount some other way then don't waste Favor buying a mount unless you manage to cap both Marks and Favor or think you will cap it before you can buy gear you must be at rank for to equip (since you must turn in the old piece too when you buy the new piece and so you of course need to immediately equip whatever you buy). Otherwise you might turn R6 without been able to purchase all the R5/R6 gear.
