Common Problems

  • I can't upgrade my PvP item because it has an incorrect rank
  • Unable to Upgrade PvP Item obtained from the Great Vault
  • I receive an error that Renown is required to upgrade, but I am already above that Renown level

You can only upgrade PvP items if you have completed the combatant story line with your covenant. This is available at Renown level 7.

Upgrading unranked PvP gear requires specific Renown levels with your Covenant. 

  • Rank 1-3 has no Renown requirement
  • Rank 4-5 requires minimum Renown 43
  • Rank 6-7 requires minimum Renown 59

Note: After a patch, your character must win a PvP match at that rank before they will be able to upgrade their items.

In addition, upgrading Conquest gear requires you to have reached a specific PvP rank and have won a match at that ranking. If you earn the achievement for reaching a rating but your rating drops below that level, you will not be able to upgrade to the achievement level.
