I just hit 60 and was curious what the warfronts would be like, and was disappointed to find that I was getting a buff that significantly increased my valor, vengeance, hp etc. I had leveled mostly through warfronts, so I have over half a set of the level 50 pvp gear, but the buff was still giving me a rather large increase in power.
It brings me to the question, is PvP gear useful in this game anymore? How much power does the buff really give you when compared to each "level" of pvp gear. Have they basically made it so that those who want to PvP can do so while upgrading their gear and being useful in both PvP and PvE, and those who want to PvE can do so and obtain their gear, then experience the highest level of PvP in that very same gear without issue?
I could understand the case to make it this way, so I ask, is this the case?
