With WoW: Shadowlands you can upgrade the PvP equipment you have earned with the recurring PvP currency honor several times and ultimately transform rare items into items with epic quality.

You may have noticed: With WoW: Shadowlands, the Blizzard developers are bringing back some well-tried things in the PvP area that have been canceled in recent years. The Gladiator's medallion as a normal piece of equipment for example, or those often desired PvP traders. And since merchants in the "player versus player" entertainment sector are not interested in disgraceful gold, honor as a currency is also coming back.

Thanks to the current PvP tests in the beta, we now know that we can not only buy items from retailers, but also upgrade PvP equipment that has already been earned. You can pay a total of six times for an upgrade. The item level of the parts increases from 158 to 190 – that's enough to turn a rare item into epic clothing. Item level 190, which also corresponds to the quality level of the gladiator armor.

Here the costs for the individual upgrades or the respective item slots (via Wowhead).
