Below are my notes incase some of you would rather have it in text (done in notepad, there will be spelling mistakes ;) )
Resilience is no longer found on pvp gear. Instead all players have a base
65% resilience. Gems can still give resilience. This will even the
playing field quite a bit. PvP power is on pvp gear only. It doesnt cost
"itemization points" meaning that pvp gear is always better than pve gear.
Any item bonuses that used to give resilience now give pvp power
They are adding an ilvl ceiling for battlegrounds. All items that are over
ilvl 496 will be scaled down to 496. This means that players with powerful,
upgraded gear wont be able to faceroll.
PvP power and Battle fatigue will make pvp hear better for healers.
Conquest gear ilvl is being increased to 496. Elite gear is now ilvl
493 and is cosmetic only.
The seasonal currency req of 7250 conquest will be removed from weapons.
Once players get 27000 conquest tyrannical gladiators gear can be purchased
with conquest points.
Essentially these changes mean that gear is less important. The role of
skill has been emphasized which is defiantly a good thing. PvP geared
players will still be better at pvp than pve geared players.
You can upgrade items much luike in patch 5.1. S12 (ilvl 483) can be
upgraded. The season 13 476 gear cannont be upgraded. S12 dreadful
gladiator gear can be upgraded, however the crafted version cannot.
Any other S13 tyrannical gear cant be upgraded.
There is a new battleground being added called deepwind gorge. Its is a
mixture of both king of the hill and catpture the flag. Players can
gain gold over time by holding points and gain instant chunks of gold
by capturing objectives and returning them to the base.
There is a new arena called Tigers Peak. The key feature seems to be high
ground. There are rasied zones with fences at the edges. The fences don't
LOS but do collide with players, meaning that ranged can do a good job of
holding the position.
NEW VANITY ITEMS
There are two new vanity items that players can purchase with a rating of
2500 for 1000 conquest points. These are the tyrannical gladiators tabard
and greatcloak. You can also buy the new weapon enchants to give your
weapons a bloody effect.
There is also the new elite gear. This is for players that have earned
25k conquest points. Ill put up pictures of the gear.
