just a thought.

All your gear currently has a certain "rating." I believe the best gear is currently rated 63 for both PvE and PvP. The PvE versions have increased stats because the PvP ones have an expertise rating. Expertise is designed to prevent PvE players from acquiring the best gear without ever having played a single PvP match. Fair enough IMO.

However what tends to happen is that PvE players will still join warzones in full PvE gear thinking its better than recruit or, because of diminishing returns on expertise, PvP players tend to wear PvE items as a way of boosting their damage output.

What if expertise didn't exist but instead all PvP gear has a +2 rating. For instance. PvE 63 would be equal to PvP 61 + 2. PvP 63 would be equivalent to PvE 65. A similar system could also be introduced for PvE so that all PvE gear is considered +2 when PvEing. All you would need to do is set a base 63 and apply a bolster for PvE and PvP environments.
