    Default New upgrade tier for PvP gear on PTS: Frenetic

    In case anyone was curious:

    PvP gear received a new upgrade path beyond Dreambreaker in the latest PTS patch. Resist/wDPS values are on par with T1 quality raid items but they retain their current 125 hit.

    New upgrade tier for PvP gear on PTS: Frenetic-frenetic-gear2.jpg

    Items still have only a single tertiary stat but since all 3 variations share the same values for primary/secondary/endurance they are placed inline to save space. Listed upgrade cost is upgrading from current max level. Greater Essence procs do not gain an increase with the newest upgrade unlike they do for the first 3 tiers.

    EDIT: Essences still use Void Source Accelerators; NOT Abyssal Crusader Accelerators. Ooops.

    g ****ing g, the frenetic gear is bis because loads of tertiary stat. If they don't raise the top bolster of course. But by now all the hardcore/dedicated pvpers are in full t1 so this is ********. Oh well I'm not complaining lol now I can quit raiding.

    i'm assuming t2 gear will be unbolstered in 3.3

    tbh im hoping they'll let t1 relics be used in pvp now. i'm doubting it but it'd be nice not to have two different sets of weapons.

    sounds like it will be much quicker and easier to just go do some raids and get a set of t1 gear rather than spending an absurd amount on upgrades to get something which is on par with t1.

    ecru do you actually want t2 gear un-de-bolstered? i certainly don't can you imagine the nightmare it will be for players who are bolstered (bolstering sucks) and players in just dungeon gear or basic world or pvp gear.

    Awesome! Finally some decent use for all those favor accelerators in my bank and 150k abyssal crusader marks in my currency tab...

    If t2 gear isn't going to be downbolstered in the next patch then they really need to up the upbolstering threshold a bit.

    Full bolstered gear as a fresh 65 sucks enough as is. Full bolstered gear vs t2 would be...

    Eh...

    I don't even want to know what that would be like.

    Or, WTB warfront brackets again.

    The juciest part of this is that now I can replace all of my "Raid drop only gear" with PvP gear, as it will now be better.

    ...now if they could be kind enough to remove the murder chest and put all gear that used to drop from it in a shop with nice price of ingame currency....(yeah, sounds familiar a bit)

    1 step back , but leading to 2 steps forward.

    If you pvp'd until this point from the beginning of nmt you should have every item and it's variants if you saved them... Too late for this change.

    cool on adding a better pvp gearing option

    the overall grind still seems a bit steep using a pvp only approach for currencies though imo, if that were reduced as well it would help create a healthier competitive playerbase.
