Its no surprise to me that they release the new 40k trinket, THEN announce season 4 quickly thereafter. Money sinks before the expansion, honor sinks before the new season. Good thing I didn't fall for that trap like a lot of people I know...... my pvp character will thank me in 2 weeks.

What do you mean? The trinket has the biggest single upgrade of any S4 item. 22 resilience is massive considering you will gain 0 from the rest of the set.

I don't mean its not worth it by any means. I mean its no coincidence that they released it right before announcing season 4, so most people sunk over half of the max honor you can have at one time into an item. I think they are trying to fanangle us into not hoarding our points for the beginning of the season, and let the gear filter into the ranks, instead of everyone walking in with everything they could possibly purchase on day one.Its the same concept as the "moneysinks" they have talked about, it try to keep the hoarding of gold for Wrath down. The Shattered Sun name you can buy is an example of that. A place for money to flow out of the system.

I know what you mean about money/honor sinks and such, but you called it a trap :-/ Personally I thought it was good, as that is 40k I don't have to farm during next season, I can do it now when I have time and break up the grind a little bit =DIf you were at cap when the trinket was released you could pretty much make up the 40k by only doing the daily BG quests.

I bought the 40k trinket with no regret. I figure i will get a LOT of use out of it even through wotlk content. Lots of people still use the 5minute trinket which was from before BC.I was using the 5 minute trinket, but when I saw the epic trinket with 40 resilience and 2 minute cooldown, i peed my pants and grinded honor for 3 days to get it. It was well worth it.
