I don't mean to be a wet blanket, but so what? There are some people who DON'T like PvP, and bought WoW because it was a MMO. I swear, some people think that WoW is PvP first with the PvE stuff thrown in as an afterthought (this aint Quake III or Battlefield 2 people!)What truly irritates me is that Blizztard forces PvE players like me to have to endure PvP action in order to get the goodies. I'll grant you the rewards for Halaa aren't spectacular, but they sure arn't bad either! I remember getting Splintermark for my Hunter with the marks I earned via the HH Fortifications.My point is, I didn't sign onto a PvP server for a reason, and I resent being forced into PvP by shoddy game design. If Blizztard wants to encourage PvP, by all rights do so, but at least offer equivalent content / rewards for those of us who don't wish to enable our PvP setting.

Agree. Sort of.I'd just like to see more balance.Getting an epic in a PvP situation (BG/Arena) takes little or no coordination with others. Want honor? Log on and sign into a BG queue. Play your match. You don't even need to chat. Just run around and kill ... or not kill. For arena, sure you need to coordinate with one, two or four others, but for just long enough for a few battles. Either way, you get your play in just a few minutes instead of over a couple hours.Getting an epic in PvE requires multiple hours of coordination and quality play from four, nine or twenty four other players. You can get S1 epics as a complete moron who hasn't bothered to talk to their trainer or replace their gear since level 14, but that's not the case for heroics or raids.Not that I discount PvP epic getters. If you like that side of the game, go with it. I don't want to infringe on other's ability to enjoy a game.But I'm tired of people looking at my gear and saying "dude, why don't you get Gladiator's Blechblabla?" Why? Because I get more personal satisfaction from prying a sword from the bloody grip of a slain monster than buying it from some goblin.I feel fine about world pvp. If I'm tired of grinding/questing on a Saturday, you bet I'm up for doing a Halaa run because it's a lot of fun. And it's nicely balanced for levels. Lowbies can bomb just as well as a level 70. Send up your lowbies to bomb down while the 70s keep the defenders in check on the ground.

Blizztard. Oh yeah...that'll get their attention.

you had me until you started saying "Blizztard."I mean, cmon, you might not like the current state of things in-game, but resorting to juvenile juxtapositions of the Blizzard name just ruins any chance of your point to be taken seriously.Seriously.

Milk, I bet you play Alliance. Cooperation is critical to willing BGs and not understanding that is the reason why Alliance looses most of the time in AV now.
