Wow.. just wow. You "need" to fail? It's not possible that someone who is a skilled player, veteran pvper from other MMOs should have any chance for success until they waste hundreds of hours to get geared max?
I lol'ed ! you can get a pvp char full 61 in on week just with 2-3 wins per day and doing the daily - and now you can also transfering pvp stuff to alts.
