    There's nothing wrong with being 100 over 99, it's just the PvP stat ilvl baseline should be lower at 90-99. I think it's 600 or so at 90-99, and (supposedly) you get 0.1% stat improvement for every average ilvl over that baseline... so if you have 99's with 730 average ilvl, they should get 13% stat improvement over the base PvP template. 130 average ilvl x 0.1%. If the baseline is 700 at level 100, that same ilvl would only get 3% stat increase, down from 13%.

    I dont know how it actually works, but that's how it was explained.

    Also, the clearest benefit of twinking at 99 is having the artifacts themselves. You cant get them until 98 so anyone below that level will not have one, and odds are most above 98 will not either. That's a big advantage... of course, being 100-only bracket would likely mean that most players in that bracket dont have legion, and therefore dont have artifacts either. So same thing, mostly.

    Everything else is "better" or at least the same at 100. It's like 6% secondary stat loss for the extra level, but you have access to mythic HFC gear items and raiding, so that's a PvE benefit not available at 99. Like i said tho... i could see that BG queue getting really long as people legion up or eventually unsub.

    By the way, i wasnt trying to dissuade you from going 100, just offering up the main differences.

    I cant say anything more than i got from playing that one game, as it's all i've done at 100, but he's only ilvl 701 and did just fine with no artifact and non-BiS. I wouldnt worry about anything else too much... ret paladin is quite strong. I am not "good" at ret and did fine in that particular BG, anyway. The 2 deaths were just due to us 5 capping the horde back to spawn and me getting slammed there (twice) trying to hold farm with only 3: http://imgur.com/57K2Aai

    Get your artifact if/when you can tho, the difference should be quite noticeable.

    Yea i know you didn't want to force me to make a 99. I should make another char for 99 purposes because it seems cool. With my DH level 99 it seems a bit op, any class suggestions? Also ty for the detailed comments

    I've got temporary access to my 100 for another 6 weeks. Treated myself to a game card for Christmas ;)

    Here is my old main and current 100 :-

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/gundrak/Icebear/advanced

    I stopped playing probably after the 1st PvP season in WoD so I was undergeared. What I've done so far is buy the WoD latest PvP set but I don't think they sell the neck and trinkets anymore.

    Any ideas guys how I can lift the ilvl of the neck and trinkets? I don't have Legion so I only have access to WoD.

    Also should I be looking to put a Legion chant on the neck for extra dps? Is it worth it? For questing / rare killing, not iPvP.

    I've done some arena and bg's and confirm it is only a 100 bracket. Some do have Artifact weapons though in this bracket.

    Any other items from WoD that would help increase ilvl? I only have access to LFR as I'm not in a raiding guild or anything like that. Also I'm very poor gold wise so can't afford big purchases.:(

    Any help or assistance in working out how to gear this 100 would be appreciated.;) Or with my limitations am I a lost cause :eek:

    Auction house. Legion epics should be cheaper at 100 than at 101. Also Kazzak in tanaan drops both neck and trinket slots, one loot and one bonus roll per week - 720 ilvl and chance to upgrade all the way to 740, 2 valor upgrades regardless. PvP gear stays at 700-710 now in BG's, just so you know. Everything i mentioned is better.

    Just to confirm some of the questions in this thread I'm now fairly certain 100's have their own bracket. I've done several bg's on my 100 and haven't seen any other level other than 100's in there. BG pops are also every 5 - 10 mins and that's even at the horrible hours I play.

    One thing I would like confirmed though is what is the base ilvl for 100's in iPvP? I'm thinking 700 could be it, but it doesn't match the ilvl of 100 heirlooms which show ilvl 605. Also the greens from the crates are ilvl 690. I'm thinking the base ilvl is likely to be 700 but I can't find any confirmation of that.

    I've been having some good fun on the 100. Only thing is though those who have the Artifact Weapon have an advantage over the WoD 100's as they also quite often have higher gear level as well as some extra stuff from the Weapon. Even so, I don't believe the gap between Legion 100's and WoD 100's is that significant so it's a fairly even playing field.

    It's 100 for right now. Blizz will probably merge it with the 101-109 bracket similar to how they merged 90 with the 91-99 bracket a couple months into WoD.
