    Default Question, Is spec'ing into physical migration worth it in pvp?

    Can't really find a direct answer on this.

    So sinking points into talents that increase your armor worth it? What classes actually use physical dps thats useful in pvp?

    Warriors do a lot of it. I get crit for 2.5K+ by some finisher (forget name), and I am wearing chain, have 6% armor boost buff most of the time, and have 1250 valor.

    Nope, it isn't worth it.
    Primarily because alot of the damage used in pvP tends to be elemental.
    They also nerfed the amount of physical mitigation you receive in PvP.

    Things that increase armour? Not really. Talents that reduce physical damage taken? Yes. Classes that do physical damage often have big armour penetration bonuses (in addition to the reduced efficacy of armour in PvP), but that doesn't affect raw mitigation talents.

    Given that usually there are other things to pick, most often other things to pick are better. But it's all about what there is to choose instead, I have no idea how to spec a cleric so can't help much with that. Physical armor mitigation is lowered in pvp settings as well, I don't know if that curve plays into armor increases being even more unhelpful. Overall though, no, most are right, it's not as great as it sounds...%/# increases to armor value.
