You're a moron. I have two bachelors, three masters, a fantastic job and am working on my phd and that does not in the slightest take away from the fact that to acquire BiS gear in this game takes effort and is work.

I think his point was more like... it's a game, it shouldn't be -considered- work. Right?

No one cares. But if a game feels like work, find a new hobby.

Every time you all "adjust" pvp gameplay, you **** it up. You've essentially rendered all the time and effort that those of us spent to obtain and optimize top level pvp gear a total waste, with your latest "fix" (removal of expertise). Who's to say you won't do the same thing with Partisan/Conqueror come future updates, again making the grind you currently intend for us to embark upon pointless in the end? Why don't you just leave **** alone? It's a wonder this game is still being played by anyone, especially pvpers, since you all clearly are intent on maintaining a predominant pve focus. How could you not foresee the imminent nonsense that would come with your grand idea of "bolster?" Thanks a lot for nothing but headache, which seems to be the only constant in each and every patch/update you all drop on us. Way to go.

Is it just me or is it kind of comical that the Devs are replying to a "lol bolster" thread and didnt take the time to make an "Official 2.0 pvp concerns" thread?

Getting Partisan is already pointless. I can take my armorings out of my EWH gear now and have better stats then with my full set of partisan gear on.

So I cant say "Im working towards getting my pvp gear" without you coming on telling me "its not your job"? You dont understand how that word can sometimes be used to describe hours spent on trying to achieve a goal, wether its a fun activity or not?

Yeah, he really needs to grow up for using that word to describe getting his gear.

Anyway...

I agree that EWH gear should be out dated by current gear. If you are whining and crying about having to gear up again, you are playing the wrong game. And NO ONE CARES if you have 7 bachelors, 12 masters, and a PHD in quantum physics. That's doesnt give you any credit here.

MMos are about the journey, not the goal. If they were about simply competing in the best gear then we would all be given the best gear, for free, when you log in. These games are about gearing up, the time, the energy, the fun that comes from PvP and PvE.

Every major expansion that introduces new gear will force you to gear up. Unless the game is a horizontal progression game or some other type of experience, that is how it works.

That's said, all gear should receive some nominal expertise value when in WZs. The gap between some expertise and zero expertise is too great to even be considered fair or competitive.
