That just leads us back to only needing one set of gear in the game because there would be no difference.
No, if someone does both pve and pvp they could gather only pve gear if they wanted, and use that for pvp too. The other way would only work on the low tiers of pve content. Having one same gear for both doesn't work because if there is to be gearing in pvp, it needs to be fast and easy to minimise imbalance. For pve however, gearing is part of the process, and much slower, the higher tiers at least. This new masterwork gear is being introduced for NiM GotM for example.

Why does pvp gear need to be better than pve gear for pvp? What would be so bad about pve mainly players jumping into some occasional pvp and having an equal footing, not being a stat burden to their team? Material rewards from pvp could be in the form of cosmetics. It doesn't have to be gear.

But again, I think we should have access to gear via pvp, if only for stat tweaking purposes and basic pve content. Something similar to 4.x only with a better bolster.
