Careful. Pretty soon we'll be seeing PvP gear available through PvE encounters and vice versa.Wait a minute...*cough*

Unfortunately that's only one way around, discrediting PvP efforts completely.With PvE obtained badges, you can buy the PvP gear:T4 -> S1T5 -> S2T6 -> S3So if you're nicely going in black temple, you need no worries in getting your almost full S3 arena set (except shoulders), having an amazing 1200 rating in PvP.However, the arena points don't allow you to buy the PvE items. So if you're a high skilled player getting ~1000 arena points / week and having nothing left to buy with them, blizzard doesn't think you're worthy enough to skip some of the farming and at least allow buying some T4-5 gear.

Trust me, if you're in full S3 and worried about getting farm content raid gear, you haven't been introduced to the concept of purposeful re-socketing.S3 gear is very competitive with (if not flat out better than) T4-T5 raid gear when gemmed and 'chanted for PvE content. That means filling them up with +Hit, +Spell Hit, and whatever stats you as a PvPer need until you get the desired effect for entry level raiding. No, you don't get amazing set bonuses or anything like that, until that high level PvP gear easily carries you through the content, thatis. ;)But aside from all of that, you're right, in a sense. We won't ever see PvE gear available to the PvPer in the same way that PvP gear is available to the PvEer. PvP gear comes just a bit too quickly, and giving players fast access to top end raid gear would be just incredibly wrong on so many levels.But who knows? Maybe we will see it happen someday. Blizzard isn't known to be a completely "fair" company, are they? ;)- HWL "Still pissed about the burning shoulders issue" Jagoexhttp://jagoex.blogspot.com
