Heh, heh, this came at just the right time for me. As a freshly minted L70 I've spend the last few weeks getting smashed in the arena, often by players in S2/S3 gear (at 1300-1400 rating, why?). Anyhoo, I sucked it up 'cos I knew I'd eventually get the gear that would make the fights a little more even. Now it seems that won't happen.
I enjoy PvP. I don't enjoy getting crushed into the ground by players in untouchable gear. So now I have to beat more experienced players in order to get the gear which will allow me to beat them? Sounds like a catch 22 situation to me and I'm glad it happened before I wasted any more time in pursuit of the impossible.
Maybe I'll give this PvE thing a try... ;-)
