I recently asked a question in the Queue at WoW Insider that got answered on Wednesday, 9/12. The answer from Alex Ziebart pretty much matched what I was thinking and the answers I got from other WoW Insider readers.
I want to run BGs when I first hit 90 (and probably while leveling a bit too, I suppose). Will I be using my current PVP gear (what was conquest gear before the patch) when I first 90, or will I be using quest rewards?
You’ll probably want to use the level 90 quest rewards. The iLevel on the new items is a big enough jump over level 85 gear that it’s worth it. Plus all players have built-in damage reduction now, so you won’t instantly die repeatedly in the level 90 stuff.

The reason why I asked was because I was wondering if I should bother enchanting or gemming my newly acquired PVP gear. No, I don’t think I will. I’d rather auction off my remaining mats and get new gear as I quest to 90. I’ll be at a very slight disadvantage at first I suppose, but I’d rather have the gold.
I can’t wait to try those new battlegrounds!
