The gear available from pvp has 2 major flaws. First there are too many types of gear. This makes it impossible to assemble a set of a particular type in any reasonable time frame. Secondly, upgrade components are prohibitive for a person that does not run dungeons or raid.
First, I propose the base gear drops be converted to 2 base types-dps centric and survival centric with more emphasis on base stats than current drops. Make it possible to specialize on upgrade. Secondly, there needs to be a pvp quest for upgrade components. I think a weekly time would be fair for this quest. However, even 14 days would be hugely superior to what is currently available for pvp centric players..
