Inaccessible Honor Gear Vendors

One of my guildies pointed out today that there are now gear pieces that we will never be able to get. These come from Honor Point vendors in Obsidian Stronghold, Glory Square. There are 3 Common Front Offiicials that each sell 3 sets of gear. The Common Front Supply Officer sells gear that decreases Critical Damage; the Common Front Officer sells gear that decreased damage from Player Attacks; the Common front NCO sells gear that decreases Damage from Monster Attacks.

Thing is, the Gloves, Shoes and Belt set costs 277,200 Honor Points.
The Shoulders and Helmet cost 554,400 Honor Points.
The Shirt and Pants cost 831,600 Honor Points.

Honor Points are capped at 25,000.

How are we supposed to be able to buy these pieces without cheating somehow? These NPCs are still in game.

a) this gear sucks nowadays. its level60 chapter4 stuff.
b) localization issues - these "honor" points are world battlefield points obtained by running Osalon Valley and Bolynthia Rift over and over and over again. (dont remember... 2-3k points per fullclear in the 12man version or something like that... now try for 278k or even 832k ... yeah, right...). Its not the same currency.

the gear vendors for the honor points that are broken atm are the same where the old pvp gloves were available - there is level77 and level80 gear.

That's not the point though, even if it is outdated and more or less useless, its still there. The fact that they even left it there and yet you have 0% chance of getting it (not that you would want to..) is fail.

you made me chuckle about "outdated" stuff still in game. The only outdated stuff that you have a 0% chance of getting, as far as I remember, is the level 65 moa weapons.
