Since grinding for pvp gear no longer even requires winning, i want to know what operation i can join to go and wipe on bosses without downing one and get my rakata anyway. You dont have to win why should i?

So tired of bioware loving on pve and loling at pvp

You get PvE gear for questing, and leveling up....

you get Flashpoint gear for doing flashpoints
you get Operation gear for doing operations
you get PvP gear for playing in PvP..


what's the problem? you get gear for the activity you want to do, by doing that activity.

OK, i'll bite.

Is this meant to be sarcasm? Only you're making a point about being able to get PVP gear just by participating, then turn around in your last sentence by berating BW for loving PVE and laughing at PVP?

You may want to edit to make more sense. Right now, there is none.

Since PVP balancing has in almost every respect made pve concealment operatives and bodyguard mercenaries either quit or reroll to other overpopulated classes your argument is misguided at best.

Off topic, but if you have people doing that, they need their heads examined. We have one Scoundrel putting up healthy numbers, compared to a Watchman Sentinel & Hybrid Balance Sage, every week. Also, our two best healers (and the ones we full cleared EC HM with in the first 24 hours of patch 1.2's release) are Commandos.

Reports of their death are greatly exaggerated.

Heres the problem...

You get Flashpoint gear for completing (winning) flashpoints
You get Operation gear for completing (winning) operations
You get PvP gear for PARTICIPATING in pvp

if i go into a warzone and get my teeth kicked in and we lose 6-0 i get rewarded.
if i go into an operation and wipe on the first boss for 2 hours i get nothing because i did not win.
so its okay to fail hard at pvp but not pve?

Grind dailies every week and get one Black Hole piece a month.

Rakata belt and bracers can be crafted.

Rakata-level BoE mods drop in Operations.

Campaign gear can be REed and sold.

So there's your answer. You can pretty much get BIS for every slot in PvE without ever doing an Operation. Wasn't the answer you were looking for though was it?

Yes let's make it so only the winners in PvP receive the rewards. that way only the good players can receive the advantage to win the next time around! I'm sure the rest will continue to enjoy that unfair advantage, with little hope of reaching that goal themselves.....

only giving winners gear seems to work in pve
