2200 Rating Weapon Availability* Updated 2/22

Community Manager
As previously announced (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1567814533?page=1), Conquest weapons requiring 2200 rating were to be made available today, January 25, but have been delayed. We currently plan to make the 2200 weapons available approximately two weeks after the release of patch 4.0.6.

The decision to further delay availability of weapons requiring 2200 rating was not made lightly. Currently very few guilds are clearing PvE content that drops weapons of this caliber, which would make rated Battlegrounds and Arenas the primary source for top-tier weapons. We of course don’t want players who are pursuing PvE content to feel as though they must engage in heavy PvP to obtain these weapons in order to be competitive or successful.

We do have some plans to help avoid similar situations in the future, and we’ll share more details when they become available.

That's a fairly lame reason to delay it.

WTF! Nice double standard, don't want PVE players to have to PVP to be competitive even though PVPers have always had to do PVE.


Yea... this x10000000.

Just what was made available today? NOTHING. Conquest items requiring 2200 were already there and all they have are different color skins (photoshop much). Yet again, PVP is screwed by PVE. Good job.

Anyone who enjoys PvP and PvE enough to "just get to 2200" is most likely 2200 already.

Why wait after the patch? Do all the nerfs make you think some people won't be able to maintain 2200 after the patch? People will just sit on the rating if that is your goal.
