@3, well yes. But the problem is that resilience addressed a symptom, not the real issue. In some ways, the T6 raider SHOULD be able to kill someone with lower level gear - presuming skilled players on both, that's a consistent outcome. Of course, the problem with that is that high end raiders had the advantage over high end pvpers since the raid gear was so much better. I wonder what would have happened if Blizzard had simply given high end PvPers similar gear at a similar level of accomplishment and not introduced resilience. Final thought - should a high resilience toon in a cloth robe *really* be hard to damage than a new toon in plate?

Cloth armor is susceptible to Physical damage, as that's what Armor mitigates. A fresh 70 in Plate will still take less damage from Physical sources regardless of Resilience. One thing we must keep in mind is that Resilience only affects crits and crit damage (and DoTs, of course) and offers no mitigation whatsoever to non-crit attacks. Insofar as Physical damage is concerned, it's a reasonable assumption that cloth simply won't mitigate as much as plate, even with Resilience.
