    Default WF drops.

    Why is all of the gear that drops in WFs and off players PvE gear? Why can't we have extremely rare drops that are actually good in PvP? Why doesn't all of the gear that drops have valor on it?

    the idea behind it, is similar to in WoW how you can exchange PvP currency for PvE currency. They want players that like to PvP mostly, to be able to get PvE gear, so they dont feel underpowered when they try to queue up for dungeons with other players sometimes.

    Even if it was PvP gear, it would be complete crap, exactly like the gear that is dropping now. Only good as vendor trash so you can buy more pots.

    Yes it would be crap. Here is the beauty of it though. Even in level 50 WFs you get level 48 green items. These are the same level 48 green items that drop from level 50 NPCs. Now however if these had say 20 valor on them or so, every WF from 50 down gives you a small amount of valor. Not much to make a real difference but enough that anybody that PvPed before 50 has a small amount of valor and is a bit tougher than the fresh 50s. This could also lead to say relic PvP gear that has astronomically low drop rates.

    I dont think the drops are really intended to be drops but more of a way for wf pvpers to generate a little money from vendor.
