    Default PVP essences: PURPLE Conquest essence can't overwrite BLUE Mercenary essence?

    So

    I bought the Conquest trinket upgrade
    I bought the conquest Seal upgrade

    (Yes I have way too many conquest marks)

    I kept saving and purchased the "Freelancer's Ignition" lesser essence.

    And I'm trying to replace some POS phys crit essence in my pvp sigil called "Mercenary's Core"
    (I'm a rogue)

    I keep getting the error:

    "Only one essence of this type can be slotted in a single focus!"

    Umm.. blue vs purp, earth vs fire.. conquest vs non conquest...

    NOT. THE. SAME.

    Fix it so we can upgrade our PVP essences or stop making us waste our marks on useless stuff.

    NOTE: When I try to overwrite my blue FIRE essence with this purple FIRE essence, I do not get this error. Are you serious? We can not mix and match essences? I can not choose 3 AP blue and 3 AP purple, I must be HAND HELD, becase i don't know what's good for me. And I must replace FIRE RESIST with FIRE RESIST? Really?

    Is that what is intended, or what is an itemization issue Trion?

    KK, Thanks Trion.

    Its true.

    And you shoulda noticed that when you tried to mix and match the rogue AP lessers with the warrior AP lessers or cleric/mage sp lessers. (You did try, right?)

    It would've given you the same error.

    Apparently all pvp lessers of the same element type are considered to be the same family of unique-equip items.

    Noticed it ages ago when I built my pvp core w/ the blue lessers. Kinda expected the purple lessers to work the same way.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    you are trying to replace an air essence with a fire essence (or something similar.

    this wont work.

    you can only replace an air essence with another air essence.


    eg: that fancy purple you now have will only replace a blue of the same element

    That's... terrible.

    Guess I definitely won't waste time on the grape CQ essences. I mean, if I get there incidentally, great, but I won't prioritize them over a second trinket and/or seal now.

    The conquest trinket that does damage only seems to be around 2% of total dps as well. The healing i gather is much better. If you are going for something to burn marks on I would say use it on the cq seal and upgrade and rune it up instead.

    is the upgrades and runed seal better than a crafted one?

    Default My guess to that would be

    Depends on whether or not you want to prioritize mainstat, or pvp spellpower/attackpower. That equation, whatever it is for your spec and calling, will tell you which. I would be surprised if there was a general rule. Though it wouldn't be the first surprise in this expac.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    Seal gives 2% more mitigation and around 1k of health and around 64 vengeance.
    DPS wise its probably inferior but keep in mind it isn't a warlord seal which may end up being better than a crafted one for PvP purposes.

    I would still get it if I were you.
