Season 13 Tyrannical Elite gear had their item levels decreased to ilevel 496, down from ilevel 512.

Battlegrounds, Rated Battlegrounds, and Arenas now have an ilevel cap. All gear will be scaled down to ilevel 496.

yeah kinda makes no sense at all because now why would you even take pvp gear over the pve gear if it doesnt even have resilience on the pvp gear to begin with....
@_@ HOLY !@#$
This is just what you think should happen.. right? RIGHT?!
This is really interesting. They still need to address the fact that the 2nd pvp trinket choices aren't optimal for many specs. If they don't I will be going to LFR and using a 496 scaled down Voodoo Gnome for my Arenas.

This solves the issue of wanting PVE pieces because of the extra Int / Agi / Str so good on blizz.
Is this a joke?

Oh. Let me see if there's a method to the madness.
5.3.0.2 Hotfix.

Base resilience has been reduced to 40% and resilience added back into Tyrannical so people stop bring 541 PvE into arena.
Odd

i think that addresses it. pve gear will become weaker in pvp i believe. arent they all in the 500s?

Pvp Item Upgrades

•Malevolent Gladiator’s Conquest (Season 12) items that have upgrades available are still upgradable at their original costs.

•Dreadful Gladiator’s Honor (Season 12) items that have upgrades available are still upgradable at their original costs.

•No other PvP items are upgradable.



and it looks like no more upgrades in pvp huraah!
With no PvP Power on PvE gear, this will kill using PvE gear outside of many trinkets, in PvP at all.
-rogues and mages have been deleted from the game, to make it more enjoyable for everyone else

PvP power.
This may open the possibility of players taking tier sets to take advantage of superior set bonuses. This would be particularly attractive to RBG FCs, as PVP power isn't important to them, resilience won't be on gear anymore, and no PVP sets are tailored for flag carriers.

I'll take a look, but as an example, the T14 set gives warlocks 40 seconds off the cooldown of dark soul, which is pretty huge.

Also, PVP weapons are already past ilevel 496. That's kind of odd, but I guess it means that weapons are no longer an excuse.

why wouldn't you? it has an ilevel cap of 496, i don't think this means all gear is auto 496, you can still be UNDER the 496 level.
This just seems like a bad idea....
