Man, I should have written this guide.
I'm glad you think it's elementary, because it's designed for novice players. The experienced PvP'er should already know these things. What this does provide is a foundational platform to stand upon.

With all due respect, you're wrong about the mandatory purchase of cheapest pieces first. It really comes down to identifying your weakest link and biggest bang for your buck. I'm adding a section on this in the future and if you'd like to help edit/write portions of it, I would certainly welcome it.

If you want to identify portions of this guide that you want to write, please do so, and I would love to incorporate your knowledgebase with my own so that together, we can help increase the learning curve for the averge newb.

Edit: its a warzone strategy guide, not a beginners guide, but whatever.
Thanks for the additions, I'll read them through and either incorporate snippets or link the guide accordingly. Thanks a bunch, friend.

In addition to some of the other stuff you mentioned, I want to add a section dedicated to using markers. This is especially useful because now anyone in the group can use them, so you can mark the healers for insatnce and tell everyone in your group who to target, etc etc. All in due time. Trying to polish what we have before I add more chapters.

Thank you so much for the update. I'll see about updating it asap. If you know of an updated chart somewhere, that would be great. Thanks again!

EDIT: Actually, the chart isnt all that outdated, as it shows the basic foundation of how the tier system works. I'm not sure anyone has put together an updated chart yet and so the current chart will stay, however I will add a notation within the OP stating that some of the tier levels have been adjusted according.

Thanks!
