Quick question for the Queue:It says everywhere that dying does not damage your equipment in PvP.I have just started to do Tol Barad battles, and after every battle I need to repair my equipment. Isn't there a contradiction there?

Are you doing the dailies too? Fighting NPCs? If not, submit a bug report.

You being killed doesn't result in the 10% durability loss, but the damage your items suffered while fighting, is what you are paying for

You still get normal wear n tear. The dead thing is a 10% durability lost on pve death which doesn't happen in pvp.
Your equipment takes damage due to fighting (hitting something, getting get). You just don't lose the "extra" 10% durability reduction like you would from dieing to a mob.

Check your log to see what killed you and if there is a message telling you that your equipped items sustained a 10% durability loss. If the killing blow came from a player and you suffered the 10% loss you should definitely submit a bug report.

On this topic I have a Q for the Queue:Has Blizz ever talked about implementing a damage-taken visual effect on your armor? Similar to how a character gets scars or ages in the "Fable" franchise games? It could work by taking into account how many points of your durability loss you've accumulated on each [major] piece of armor. If not a permanent effect (someone who's had armor for years looks more banged up than someone who just bought the same kind) then at least deteriorate as the durability approaches 00/xx then gets shiny after repairing again.
