Sweeping Conquest Reward Buffs in Upcoming Hotfixes

by - 2 years ago

Most Conquest Point sources will be increased by 50% in yet-to-be-applied hotfixes, Blizzard says. The increase will affect Random and Rated Battlegrounds, Arenas/Skirmishes, and Rated Arenas.

As latecomers and current PvPers grind their gear faster than ever in Warlord‘s final PvP season, the sweeping increases might give a little taste of what’s to come in Legion PvP. Remember, in Legion, iLevel will have very little impact on player power, around 5%.

Read today’s hotfixes below. Refer to the official post for the complete hotfix list for 6.2.x.
