Guardian battalion commander
There are new items at the Armory.
The upgrade section features two sets of new items:
Reputation: you will be able to purchase these if you meet certain reputation levels (House Sima).
Honor: you will be able to purchase these if you meet have enough Honor (PvP Arena).
The objective for the new items is for you to have something to look forward to (carrot) but also be a test for a future feature - "weapon specialization".
Each archetype will get two (or three) choices when it comes to weapons and armor.
The third slot give you more choices - some trinkets will unlock skills.
