PTR realms will be coming down soon so we can deploy a brand new 6.2.2 (yep!) build. Expected downtime is around 6-8 hours. Many thanks for your continued patience.
I'll keep this thread open for general discussion and questions as long as posts remain civil and adhere to forum guidelines.
Misleading title is misleading.
What Tom said was that someone wearing the absolute best PvE gear in the game might have a 7% advantage over someone who had just hit level 100 -- and thus, had not collected any gear at all. There was nothing about his statement at all that could be taken as "the best gear for PvP comes from PvE." I have no idea how you could have gotten that from what he said, unless you're purposefully trying to stir up trouble.
Our intent -- as it has been for several expansions now, and as it is currently in Warlords -- is for PvP gear to be the best available in PvP. That has not changed in Legion.
