“That's what this comes down to. You can use your PVP gear to raid, but you sure cannot use your raid gear to PVP.”Ok, some people already proved that wrong, so I won’t comment on that to much. Good pvp gear can get you through heroics… yay.. big thrill. You will seriously be underperforming in raid like SSC and TK with pvp gear. Can it be done? Sure. Can pvp’ing in tier 5 and 6 pve gear be done and win? Sure. But the moral of the story is… each set has better advantages in each scene. Quit making pvp gear out to be the holy grail of gear for everything in the game.“I have to disagree. Raiding gear is harder to get that Arena gear. And you get the raiding gear for what: to raid more? It won’t do you much good against arena gear in PVP. It used to be you put in all the blood sweat and tears of raiding to get great gear to PVP and raid in.”Yeah, exactly. So WHY are you raiding if all you are doing is spending massive amounts of time to get to illidan and then pvp from there on out?Understand that not everyone in this game wants to run instances with 24 other jackass’s just to get gear. There are tons of people that want to get gear faster and pvp only, and not be dependent on other people just to play this game as far as progression.I am extremely glad they brought the pvp gear into play and made it completely different than pve gear.I hated pre BC where raiding guilds could come into a bg and completely murder everyone in there. Now it’s different. You want to raid and get that good gear? Great, go for it. You’ll be able to PVE your heart out and do well. You want to run around the world and play other players? Better jump in arena’s and put time in like the other pvp’rs are.I love how pve’rs think they should have the best of both worlds just because they can organize a group to kill bots that have the same exact paths in their fights each time. QQ. Don’t get me wrong, being able to down illidan is a great accomplishment, but does that mean you should be able to dominate the pvp scene? They deserve to be 2 SEPARATE functions.

I guess there’s two sides here. As a semi-casual player, I like to raid and PVP. I simply don’t have enough time for that. Pre BC, I could do both and I enjoyed both. Now, I cannot take my raiding Destro lock into EOS and other battlegrounds without getting my head handed to me. The arena is out of the question, my Kara gear would not be competitive in there. Hence, because of resilience, I will never be a valid arena player. I’m missing out on part of the game.My solution is to level a PVP character to compliment my PVE character. But that takes time away from raiding and goldmaking from my lock. I now have two mediocre characters instead of one really good one.
