    Default New PvP Ranks, but no new gear?

    Came back after a couple month break, saw there were new PvP ranks, got to 40...and no new gear? Really?

    There's really not any new ranks, they just broke 1-8 up into 1-40 for smoother progression.
    Look at your post, now back to mine, now back to your post, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine, but if you stopped being nonconstructive and dumb and started posting about something that makes sense, it could look like it's mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a page with the post your post could look like. Anything is possible when you post like me, and not like an idiot. I'm on a forum.

    When I left, there were no PvP weapons on par with what could be gained from HK PvE content...it seems that hasn't changed, and this would have been a good opportunity to do something about that.

    There is a new improved PVP crystal you can buy for ~64K favor, but it's only a slight upgrade over the previous R8 crystal.

    Pretty sure PvP gear will always be a tier behind PvE gear. The majority of the population likes to PvE so they need to be pleased.

    That and the fact that you can snooze your way into PvP gear.

    Once infernal dawn comes out, likely the lowest PvP tier set will be scrapped and everything else will move down a tier. The rank 40 gear will PROBABLY be equivalent to ID purples.

    Actually now every single piece of pvp gear has valor making it BiS for pvp, and the r8 weapons aren't too terribly far behind hk relics, if you consider their vengeance

    Sure, because taking 30 of your friends to farm a scripted boss is much more challenging

    I can snooze my way into pve gear. I mean really, how hard is it to adjust to something that is guaranteed to happen? I wish they would add an element of randomness to pve, like perhaps a boss mob summons a bunch of pvp'ers of the opposing faction to aid it in its defense.

    For DPS Rogues, the ranger crystal 2pc > PvP gear
    For DPS warriors, the champ 4pc > PvP gear
    For DPS clerics, the inquis 4pc > PvP gear
    For DPS mages, the pyro 4pc > PvP gear

    For warriors, PvE tank weapons > PvP weapons
    For warriors, PvE shields > PvP shields
    For rogues, PvE tank weapons > PvP weapons

    For every class, relic weapons > PvP weapons


    So yeah, no.
    If you want to be the best you can be, PvE or bust unfortunately.

    I second the OP. I've been PVP gear maxed since July of last year, that's a lifetime to wait in an MMO for a gear change. Even subtle changes that would allow me to tailor gear to a specific pvp build would be a huge step forward.
