5.3, Gear is now pointless to get.

So here's what people may think through:

Take a class, rogue for example, and give him 4 peices tier 15 gear. get him the pc bonus. Now socket all sockets with pvp power and gear the remaining gear slots with pvp gear. U wont lack that much pvp power, you might even come out pretty even. U will, however, depending on your class, have an amazing setbonus to pvp with. Think about it ...

Oh and healers dont need pvp power, they might go fully pve then.

Good, gear is what's holding this game back from actually being fun.


I concur.

For World PvP it might be worth to get heroic raid gear ;-)

pve gear won't be better..


you sure?

for healers pve trinkets will be better
for rbg tanks pve gear will be better
items with more gems slot can actually be better

just dps wont have to worry, but wouldnt count on that for long.
there needs to be some adjustments for pvp power/healer and new trinkets


Healers will benefit more from pvp power than they do now, go check us forums.

But ye for sure fcs will still use 1 pve trinket

What makes you think they will equip any PvP gear at all save the cc-break trinket and perhaps PvP gloves unless something changes?

Are you just that convinced that Blizzard will address it in an efficient and balanced way?

Didn't read the whole thread as I couldn't be bothered but what caught my attention was the 65% resi baseline, some classes already benefit a lot from PVE stuff but sacrifice some survability for it, e.g. affli locks destroying stuff with double PVE haste trinkets. This is gonna let them and similar classes do this without having to worry too much about the resi.

We don't want to see flag carriers running around in full PvE gear either and this is something that we are looking into sorting out. When we have more information on this, we'll let you know.

That is wrong actually, our intention is for PvP power to be much more useful in PvP than PvE gear.

Understand that we don't want PvE gear to be the best in PvP either and are these changes should ensure that this remains so. The feedback that everyone is providing regarding these changes to gear is great and it's offering us a lot of useful information. Please continue providing all of this great feedback and positive discussion, but do so in a single thread. :)
