The gear you obtain from Lake Wintergrasp won't be as powerful as honor/Arena gear. As soon as I saw that statement, I shook my head, because that's the same problem with Halaa. Blizzard doesn't seem to learn from its mistakes sometimes. Why would people spend time to acquire subpar gear when they could spend their time elsewhere to get something better? WoW players min-max everything to death, and if there's something better and easier to get, that's where they'll be. This zone sounds like Halaa 2.0.

Wow, you must have failed reading comprehension...They said the rewards will "not be more powerful". It doesn't say it'll be subpar to the other gears, it could (and most likely) very well mean that it'll be EQUAL to the arena/honor gears.

ILikePvPbuthatePvPers:If that was true, they would have said it would be equal gear. Instead, they carefully chose their words and said it would be "less powerful," meaning it won't be as good. Thus, it will be like Halaa in that people will stop participating once they hit level 80 because there is better gear to spend time on. Again, WoW is a min-maxing hellhole where anything subpar is disregarded. As with Burning Crusade, PvP will be all about Arena, Arena, Arena--little instanced duels in tiny rooms. Thank god Warhammer will be out by then.

Actually they said it that it won't be MORE powerful. To me that indicates it could be tied in quality.

@Mullinator:I hope you're right, but I see no reason why Blizzard would say "won't be more powerful" instead of "equal" if the gear is in fact supposed to be equal. Frankly, I think we all know the Arena will continue to be the primary source of PvP gear, leaving Lake Wintergrasp in the dust.
