I really don't have issues if people want to shove a few PvP pieces into gear slots, but there's a definite difference in threat generation between a PvE- and PvP-geared bear. Otherwise, it all comes down to -- compare it to your current gear, and if it's an upgrade, bung it in. I'd be the world's biggest hypocrite if I didn't acknowledge this, given how much use my main's gotten from the stuff.But my biggest worry is seeing bear tanks who are reliant on PvP gear tanking for DPS who are advancing through Firelands. The more PvP gear they've got, the more that threat tends to be an issue, particularly for DPS rocking the more godlike weapons and trinkets.I'll start adding PvP gear if people really want (and you're entirely right about the two-piece bonus), but I still think the slightly higher ilevels per tier makes it look deceptively useful in relation to its PvE counterpart, and I don't want a preponderance of PvP gear in guides to be construed as a wholesale endorsement of it.Granted, misses/dodges are also like nails on a chalkboard for me...
