PVP gear can be bought with commendations and tokens, earned by doing warzones, world PVP, and PVP daily/weekly quests.
The system to acquire PVP currency and purchase the gear is a bit complex. The basics are as follows:
- PVP activities can earn you Valor (rank), Warzone Commendations
- There are 4 levels of PVP gear, in order of quality: items from the PVP Armor vendor < Centurion < Champion < Battlemaster
- Acquiring the various commendations and Unassembled tokens confuses most people. Here's the scoop:
- Warzone Commendations can buy other commendations from the PVP Items Vendor:
|Commendation Type||Cost||Commendations Received|
|Mercenary||30 Warzone||10 Mercenary|
|Champion||120 Warzone||1 Champion|
|Battlemaster||1000 Warzone and 1000 Mercenary||1 Battlemaster|
- 200 Warzone Commendations and 200 Mercenary Commendations will buy you a Champion Gear Bag from the PVP Items Vendor. The Champion Gear Bags are unique (only 1 in your inventory at a time)
- The Champion gear bag will contain 15 Centurion and 7 Champion commendations, as well as a chance to have an Unassembled Champion token.
- Battlemaster bags are rewarded from doing weekly PVP missions and require a Valor rank of 50. Those bags contain Champion Commendations, as well as a chance for a single Battlemaster Commendation.
