As i told you, the new exotic element equalizer don't drop by reverse engineering modifications and enhancements, only armorings/hilts/barrels drop the exotic element equalizer. So you get 1-2 of those mats instead of 3-4 which in turn makes pvp less profitable, just as i said.
Less profitable compared to what? In live?
Ok, but the ease of acquisition is not changed so it will still be MORE profitable to go PvP since PvE has to live with the same "nerf" where armoring rewards only supplies the equalizers. Even the new op is only dropping 5 on an 8man.. In the same timeframe of a raid, you are guaranteed around 4 via PvP.
