It's ridiculous how nobody cares about this. I changed back to regular gear because I am actually managing without dvl. xD Most players are just that bad.

Juggs in this gear in tank spec do 4k dps in ranked.

But they have intentionally BUFFED the damage reduction in this gear because of people using this gear while leveling and dying quickly in regs.

Hope so, this clearly needs to be nerfed.

Dear Neoforcer, did you mean "soon" or "Soon™"?

I don't play ranked (I hate arenas), but given the last few weeks and reading here and elsewhere, all I can say about Season 8 is LOL.

BW needs to fix this ASAP, or give one of these to everyone and just call it the new PvP suit.

I refuse to use this thing on any L70, but it also bolsters L65s to crazy heights too. Then again, I'd say wearing it while leveling is legit regardless of stats - that's its sole intended purpose.

Yeah, they might as well revert back to how we used to get a full suit of entry level pvp armor as soon as we hit cap level, remember that? What was it called, recruit?

They already went back to how gear grinding was prior to 3.3, why not add in a bag that you get at cap level that grants you a full suit of PVP armors?

The weird thing is, I don't even think this is really a bug, and I definitely don't think it is an exploit (obviously, or I wouldn't be posting about it.)

I think it is the intended behavior. Since this suit is made for the sole purpose of speeding up leveling I think these effects are working exactly as designed. It's just having a silly and somewhat OP effect at max level.

I mention this because someone called out another person trying to report this in the bug report subforum. That's just wrong - people are using this in PvP now and everyone needs to be aware of what's going on.

And it definitely needs to be nerfed.
