Hey,
Is there really a point in having current Malevolent upgraded to 491 since the amount of pvp power and resi on the new 476 Malevolent is a bit retarded. New 476 has got approximately 25% more resi and pvp power than current 483. Do the other stats outweight pvp power and resi? As an example:
Malevolent Gladiator's Felweave Trousers:

491 (old upgraded) vs 476 (new)
+45 Armor
+73 Intellect
+110 Stamina
+49 Haste
+49 Mastery
-111 PVP Power
-111 PVP Resilience


What are your thoughts?

The Patch 5.2 Malevolent gear may have more PvP power and Resilience, but Patch 5.1 Malevolent gear has higher Item levels and as such stats. To have more clarity on this you can read the below comparisons:

  • 5.1 Malevolent Gear has a higher ilevel than 5.2 Malevolent Gear.
  • 5.2 Malevolent Gear has more PvP Power/Resilience than 5.1 Malevolent Gear.
  • 5.1 Malevolent Gear
  • 483 ilevel (491 with 2/2 upgrades)
  • ~30 ilevels of PvP Power and Resilience
  • 5.2 Malevolent Gear
  • 476 ilevel
  • ~36 ilevels of PvP Power and Resilience

In the end, the effective Ilvl of patch 5.2 and 5.1 Malevolent gear puts them at about equal. The reason for lowering the item level and increasing the PvP stats for the 5.2 version of Malevolent gear is because we want players to run 5.0 LFR, this means that the Ilvl of honor gear needs to be lower than the entry requirement of 483. The result of this was lowering the Ilvl (stats) of the gear, but increasing it's PvP power and resilience to compensate. That difference in power you feel is going to be extremely prominent, is actually quite minor.

i got a question , does elite weapon this season will be better than t1 weapon new season?
The Season 13 Malevolent weapons will be the same as the current season 12 non-upgraded weapons. So if you have an elite weapon from season 12, it will be better than the Season 13 honor version.
Here you can see some of the comparisons for the difference between the season 12 and 13 weapons :)

Season 12 Normal - Malevolent Gladiator's Pike
Season 13 Malevolent - Malevolent Gladiator's Pike
Season 12 Elite - Malevolent Gladiator's Pike
Season 13 Tyrannical - Tyrannical Gladiator's Pike
Season 13 Elite - Tyrannical Gladiator's Pike

Edit - Whoops, forgot to add in the season 13 elite :O

My apologies, it would seem that the numbers shown above for the S13 T1 weapon are incorrect. The S13 Tyrannical weapons you can purchase for conquest have an Ilvl of 493, which increases their stats by a drastic amount. You can find more accurate numbers for the stats of these weapons here on WoWhead: http://ptr.wowhead.com/item=91307

Do ignore the upgrades it lists as them having though because as we have mentioned before now, they are taking a break in 5.2 :)
