Uncap that Conquest Cap!

Uncap that Conquest Cap!

Since we are currently in between arena seasons, the cap on the amount of conquest points a player can earn each week from arenas and battlegrounds is much higher than normal!

Look at that HUGE weekly conquest cap!

Of course, once the new arena season begins, you will most likely be able to buy the current conquest gear (Tyrannical set) with honor points (as this is usually the case).  So, if you really want to get a head start on next season’s honor gear, cap out your conquest each week before the new season begins and get all your Tyrannical pieces now!**

Further Explanation

**For those who may be confused by what I mean by this, please see the following explanation:

– The previous season’s gear that could be acquired via honor points is called, “Malevolent” PvP gear.  Note that even though we are between seasons, you can still buy this gear with honor points and there is no cap on the amount of honor a player can earn in a specified time period (however a player may only hold up to 4,000 honor points at one time on each character).

– The previous seasons’s gear that could be acquired via conquest points is call, “Tyrannical” PvP gear.  Note that even though we are between seasons, you can still buy this gear with conquest points.

– When next season begins, last season’s “Tyrannical” PvP gear (the gear that previously required conquest points) will most likely be sold for honor points and a NEW PvP gear set will be introduced for purchase via conquest points.

Also note that there is normally a very strict weekly cap on the amount of conquest points a player can earn in one week per character, so the acquisition of the current season’s conquest gear is paced out.

Since we are currently between ranked arena seasons, this weekly conquest cap is much more liberal since it would not cause an unfairness to those who “did it the hard way” each week, so to speak.  This because the ratings and rankings for arena teams last season have already been finalized.

Think of this current time as the off-season in professional sports.
