Glorious Conquest Vendors Removed Until 5.3

Community Manager
The Glorious Conquest PvP quartermasters (Acon Deathwielder for the Horde and Ethan Natice for the Alliance) will be removed to refit the items that they sell before patch 5.3 arrives. Glorious Conquest PvP gear is being changed from item level 512 to item level 496, but this wasn’t a change that could be applied via a hotfix. In the meantime, we wanted to avoid a situation where players intending to purchase upgrades would buy these items, only to find that they had purchased cosmetic items when they are reduced to their new item levels with the arrival of patch 5.3.

You can read about the coming item changes in the PvP Gear in Patch 5.3 blog. See you on the battlefield!

What about the meta gem? Is that being moved to the other vendor?

Does this mean we will need to get 2.2k rating in 5.3 to get the cosmetic gear? I was really looking forward to the blue monk helm.

I am not looking forward to a blue DK set, I will most likely just purchase it just to say i have it.

I really wish I had more information/understanding of how rating is going to work in 5.3

Yes, I've read all the linked information. There's just very little hard information there considering we're getting closer to 5.3.

I think Elite gear will be 100% cosmetic and un-altering to our performance .

I'm more concerned about how inflation is going to work. Or if there will be any.

This is an un-expected change that in no way effects anyone who understood how the 5.3 gear was going to work. Don't try to turn this into another soap-box to stand on while you !@#$%.

Thanks for the heads up.

That's actually a valid point, can we consider this a two-week notice?

Funny you use that word, because it was people's £ª•¢¡ng which facilitated this change.

Guess you'll have to play well to get your cosmetic upgrades. Damn, how unfair.

So if you're removing gear progession from pvp... What's the point now?

It does seem likely that in the next 2-3 weeks, a large number of people will be in full tyrannical and CP capped, leaving the question open as to what, if anything, there will be to spend those CP on.

The should remove the cap is you can't spend the points, then put the cap back after the vendor is replaced.
