    Shadowlands Beta - Upgrading PvP Gear with Honor
    PvP testing is currently underway on the Shadowlands Beta, and we are able to test a new system to upgrade PvP gear in a similar fashion to upgrading your Benthic gear in 8.2!

    PvP Vendors
    Shadowlands once again introduces the Honor currency, which is earned through PvP along with the more coveted Conquest currency. Honor currency can be used to purchase rare quality entry PvP gear with an item level of 158, while Conquest currency is used to purchase epic quality PvP gear that is item level 190.

    Upgrading Your PvP Gear
    Next to the PvP vendors is another NPC that will allow you to spend your Honor currency to upgrade the gear you purchase from the PvP vendors. Currently, only the Honor system is implemented, but we assume you will be able to spend Conquest currency to upgrade your conquest gear as well.

    How it Works
    Much like upgrading your Benthic gear in 8.2, you simply talk to the upgrade vendor and place the PvP item into the UI menu. You will be able to upgrade a piece 5 times, maxing it out at rank 6. Honor gear is item level 158 at rank 1 and finishes at item level 190, which is the equivalent of rank 1 conquest gear.

    • Rank 1 - 158 Ilvl
    • Rank 2 - 164 (+6 Ilvl)
    • Rank 3 - 171 (+7 Ilvl)
    • Rank 4 - 177 (+6 Ilvl)
    • Rank 5 - 183 (+6 Ilvl)
    • Rank 6 - 190 (+7 Ilvl) (Item turns from rare to epic)

    So now we have:
    Honor Points for our Honor Level
    Mark of Honor for PvP consumables
    Honor Points for gear / gear upgrade

    this won’t be confusing for new players at all

    Very cool of them to put so much thought into the system.
    Shame its a little bit pointless without the pvp power/resilience stat.
