PvP just feels too punitive.Would comment on the forum, because the OP is articulate and clearly means well, but the thread is already 20 pages deep and attention spans just can't hold on that long. But I will say this - it would be nice for it to be easier to get into PvP. For as long as I can remember, I've despised PvP - not because I don't like a good test of skill - but rather because of the vast imbalance between a character who's geared and spoiling for a fight, and someone who's just starting out.Part of the allure of pvp is that no two fights will ever be the same, but that's also a huge drawback. With PvE, you have predictable outcomes that allow you to learn and grow, and ultimately achieve. In PvP, you have to suffer through continuous deaths, over and over and over again, often learning nothing from them, simply because of a gear imbalance. It's just not fun.I think Cataclysm actually made this worse, and I'm really hopeful that Mists will develop a way to encourage people to PvP. Maybe an after-action report, like what we get through raids now... "Get out of the fire!" could turn into "Use your trinket now!" Get people to learn in a similar way they learn in raids.

Please put your thoughts on the forums, We need people like you stating exactly what you are stating here. I also agree that there should be a new tier from like 0-2.5k resilience (or however they want to do it). It would be like having well geared heroic players have to run heroics with fresh max level toons. Not that it can't be done, but is this fair? Is this how we want to be subjected to PvP? I know I wouldn't I love pvping while I level up because it's more pure. Sure there are those who totally gear up for it, have the heirlooms, etc. But once you hit max level, I think there are more high end tuned players feasting on the fresh ones. And I don't think it is right. You have a voice and it is a good one. You should post, no matter how many have posted. They will take the time and read through the good ones. I beg you, and anyone else on the fence about it. Please do so.

They already did this in Cata. With the exception of your weapon and trinkets you can get crafted pvp gear for every slot that is comparable to last seasons honor gear. If you go into a bg with a full set of crafted pvp gear you'll find yourself having a lot of fun.
