I seem to remember an built-in penalty to utilizing PvP gear. Perhaps it was sometime around the introduction of Cataclysm. Something about the gear has a reduction somewhere on it if being used in PvE. I'm sure it was something. Or perhaps it was the other way around? But I definitely remember it! Something you couldn't see on the items.

I remember they slashed the set bonus to primary stats in 1/2 because it was such an attractive option (especially for the shoulders and helm). Maybe that is what you remember?

That may have been it...its been a while.

Finally somewhere I can point to the math regarding this. Thanks!Too many newbie bears who don't understand the benefits of pvp gear while gearing up.
