Well I forget what forum or blue post I discovered this from, it's been some weeks, but the set bonus changes on Gladiator gearsets is designed to make actual PvP gear more desirable and competitive with PvE gear in arena (lol!).Yep, that's right. Blizzard has noticed a decided trend that many players and comps can and do perform better in arena when garbed in their finest raid dps gear (possibly re-enchanted+gemmed for pure SP/AP and/or ArPen than in PvP gear itself.Prot paladins and warriors are among the more severe examples of this, but rogues, ferals, rets, and mages can be quite a bit more dangerous in PvE than PvP gear depending on comp and skill.Short version: Now PvP gear has more dps stats. You can have resil and pew pew too.

I usually play a ret paladin, and I always found I got better results in mostly pvp gear. The much greater survivability more than compensated for slightly reduced dps. And I find that when I am in PvE gear I get targeted right away. I can see how it might be different for ranged classes, though.
