    You do realize the plaque cost is exactly the same, it just means you won't be holding out for the full cost of the T2 item?

    When did they do that? I have to go see this for myself.

    ...and people would still skip T1 instances.

    Can't see any point to that change as all it does is forcing you to spend marks acquired from T2 run for useless T1 gear before switching to T2 counterpart right away. Click on vendor twice instead of once is sure great change.

    And no, it is nothing like PvP tiers, as in PvP you also have prestige locks and stuck to lower gear until you rank up.

    Oh, and if, for example, I have full tanking T2/3, I sure need to buy T1 pieces for my dps offset before T2, even if all marks earned from tanking T2? Yes, very logical.

    T2 dungeon gear will have synergy crystals now, too. I think it makes sense. I hope they add more dungeon tiers

    It's a good change, I can't see why anyone would have a problem with it. The cost is the exact same, all it means is that my new level 50 alts can buy their T1 sets and then upgrade it once I acquire more marks. Instead of having to hold out and stick with an inferior item until I have enough marks to buy the T2 piece.

    Actually what people fail to see is that this is a good thing, if you lets say are going for the legs and you have crapy blue legs from questing or what ever, than you gos some t1 or even 2 and as soon as you get 75 marks you buy the first t1 piece. You get to use it, whiich is an upgrade from what you already have till you make up the diference to buy the t2 piece. So i dont see the problem really.

    The problem for PVPers was that ppl skipped to rank 5-6 in greens saving up favor and the price of r6 was not the price of r1-5 + something extra.

    With the prices of t2 lowered by the value of the t1 piece some people will get to wear that piece while working for the better one. For some it will just be an anoyance of having to click twice, but its a small price to pay imho.

    I like this change! No more debating if I should spend marks on the small upgrade a T1 item would provide. Now I buy it and then get the T2 when I can. I like the way PvP gear works and I'm glad to see it was passed to PvE. It also stops me from accidentally buying a dup T2 item (that only happened once! I swear!)

    This is a fantastic change in every way. It makes it so players don't need to hoard plaques under the perception lower ranked gear is a "waste".

    Total cost is the same. Gear path is quicker and continuous.

    Wonderful change.

    I fail to see any reason why someone would complain about this change? This is a great change, end of story.
