@ HoggerI agree, but I wasn't asking where is the logic in the need for a solution, i was asking where is the logic in making that solution be a whole separate stat requiring a whole separate set of gear/gems/enchants when they could have simply made the solution be a BG/Arena/Wintergrasp-wide buff or debuff.The problem is that, in PvE gear, our damage output gets to the point where it far exceeds the damage we can take. For example, my mage can hit for 10k, but he only has 17k health, which means i can 2-shot myself (or any other equally geared DPS, the same as they can do to me). That doesn't make for good PvP, so to counter this, Blizz came up with the stat Resilience to reduce incoming damage. This in turn requires us to farm a whole separate set of gear, gems, and enchants and ends up dividing a lot of the WoW community between PvE and PvP cuz most people just don't have enough time in the day to do both.What i'm suggesting is that Blizz use a HP buff or damage debuff in BG/Arena/Wintergrasp instead. It would be a percentage which would scale with your gear, so gear would still matter, it just wouldn't have to be a whole separate set of gear anymore. Blizz could then focus all the man hours they spend creating PvP gear and apply it toward something else and more players would be able to partake in both PvP and PvE, it would be win-win for everyone.
