Ok, we waited 3 months to get the first set of gear, can you please tell us when to expect the jewelry / weapons for PVP?  I think having to wait an extra 3 months past expansion release you owe us that much Oilhin...   an ETA? a rough estimate? months? weeks? never? something...

It takes ~3 months to patch in fixes and make changes to PVP, so if we are very lucky we might see DoV weapons and accessories perhaps in August, just a couple of months before the new expansion releases in November.

Sounda bout right, just as people earn enough tokens to get the new gear, they make it completely worthless with a new expansion....  Why do I play this game still?  SWTOR cant come out soon enough

Low-hanging-fruit prediction based on past performance by SOE: I anticipate PVP will be broken and horribly exploitable once again with Age of Discovery release, and it will be ~Feb to release AoD pvp armor.

It appears that SOE is too understaffed to keep pvp current with the rest of the game.

Once again.. as much as I loved old school pvp.. it is time to flip the switch on Naggy and make us blue.

It is harsh but true.. they will never fix PVP and never make it better.. They do not have the people to do it and they do not have the know how to do it. And as more and more stuff is added to PVE.. more and more will break in PVP.

Good point:  the new incoming class Beast Lords will likely also break PVP in huge and exploitable ways for months before a fix can be scheduled.

I would assume they already had the weapons / jewelry designed, they just decided to put them out in different GU's like they did last expansion, without thinking about the fact we had to wait 3 months already just to get the first set of new PVP gear... that stuff is already made and waiting to be put live... they need to tell us when.

Question Still stands, since there are no PVP updates in Test Server Notes.... we getting PVP jewelry / weapons with GU?  Would love to hear from someone, maybe put it on TestCopy so people can test the stuff out and you know, like get the bugs out before it hits live? god forbid?

Heard from a friend who said he heard from an "official source" that there would be NO pvp weapons / jewelry until the new expansion....

Oilhin, this is truely getting ridiculous, are we getting new PVP weapons / jewelry with GU or not... just a simple Yes or No here... thats all I'm asking now... are we getting new stuff with the GU...

I'm pretty sure we wont get any new gear next GU.  Best thing you can hope for really is that the fix to PvE crit bonus nerfs the op nature of raid jewelry / weapons.

Must Not Be Engaged In Pvp Combat.

Please remove these off every effect that can be obtained by raiding. its the only way to not be using gear from TSO and SF. Really hurting PvP gear progression to comply to people whining about how the cant obtain raid gear then not even offer the effects to people who pvp. I raid and pvp. I cant get them either way? Seriously bogus.

Raid gear should not be a better choice for PvP than PvP gear.

Raid gear should be equal to wearing the MC PvP gear in PvP

PvP gear should be equal to wearing T1 current content Raid gear in PvE

For those of oyu who do not follow the above statements try this

For PvP

Open world Token Bought PvP gear > T4 Raid gear

T4 Raid gear = to MC PvP gear

For PvE

T4 Raid gear > Open world Token Bought PvP gear

Open world Token Bought PvP gear = T1 raid gear

This is basicly how it was set up in TSO and it worked.  Yes there were still problems but it was better than what we have now.  No I did not include the BG gear cause well imo its not PvP.  Yes I did BG's when they first came out and it was fun for about 2-3 weeks then not so much.  Open world PvP has always been better than BG's even in its current state or lack of it as you can still find fights out there and its the thrill of the hunt or the reaction you get when you get jumped.  That is PvP not OK you grab the relic and hold onto it while we taunt and heal you.

I am sure not everyone will agree with me but tbh the KP zerg was more fun than BG's ever will be.

PvP is broken and has been for years.  No matter what they do to try and fix it, it just gets worse.  The only reason I don't leave Nagafen is because everyone I know plays here and I just can't stand the idea of starting on a new server again.

Unless it is the PvP locked server at KoS or EoF...
