The blue set isn't welfare gear because it's full price (honor wise) and it's blue; once season 6 starts and the middle epic sets/accessories become available for honor, that will be welfare gear.

Lol, you judge it only on the color of the item? Tard.

Newsflash: many, many players do.

I never thought PvP gear was welfare...I have a much easier time PUG'ing heroics and raids and getting my stuff than I do griding PVP. I get much more frustrated PVP'ing than doing dungeons, because of all the AFK idiots, or people who can't follow simple instructions. Sure, every now and then I run into a crappy raid/instance group, but that is actually a pretty rare event.I find it easier to get geared by doing instances/raids.

There IS no welfare gear period. I would grind BGs for 1 week straight for 1 piece of gear. How is that welfare? In between BGs I would run Kara and get a upgrade here or there. 1 night I got 2 pieces of my T4 on the same run. So what is more welfare? The 3 hour Kara run I got 2 peices of T4 or the 1 week spent grinding PVP against season 2 and 3 pvpers?

Naix, it's referred to as welfare because anyone can get it, regardless of skill. You could completely fail at every BG you go into, but you're still going to get honor and eventually collect that piece. If you go into dungeons and never make it past even the first boss, you're probably not going to get much gear, if any at all. That's pretty much all it boils down to. :)

One week for one piece? Wow, I gathered all the honour I needed over a weekend in AV, and the marks equally fast in the weekdays after - resulting in a full set of welfare epics, and it took me less than three hours a day on average. And I didn't land a single Killing Blow. In fact, the last games in WSG, I set up a picnic and danced with a couple of Hordies instead. And all this while watching Farscape and Firefly.
