"Instead of Expertise being a stat that you're chasing as you're getting better and better PvP gear, all the PvP gear no matter what tier it is will have the same Expertise level. It's just the normal stats that will be getting better as you getting higher in PvP gear."

Not bad, but rolling with 15000 hp against 20000 hp is still not very fun.

That's because people are too cheap or lazy to augment BM gear. That is their own fault.

This is a great change though, and one that I've been asking for since forever.

So....Expertise will do nothing besides give + x% healing to fight trauma?


Not sure if I see the point in keeping it around, then. Unless they make it reduce stun durations, or something....

Even with this change. People will still complain about how gear > skill. The complainers will always complain until all gear of all tiers are the same. Then they will complain about game mechanics.

That's not how I understand it, unless I misunderstand your question. You will still want PvP gear - with expertise - for PvP. But the different ranks of PvP gear will all have the same amount of expertise on them. The other stats are what will differ.

You still won't want to walk into level 50 pvp with 0 expertise.
