    PvP gemming for DPS

    What's the best way to gem for PVP? I've seen and heard of a lot of different theories on this.

    I'm a warrior, so I'll use that for example.

    How does STR compare to PVP Power? I've been gemming +325 PVP Power in every single slot, regardless of color and set bonus. I know Pvp power slightly outperforms straight STR in terms of pvp damage output, but I'm giving up on a lot of set bonuses that reward resilience and strength. I've seen warriors take STR and PvP power in red and yellow slots, and pvp power in blues.

    Eldacar has done the maths in his Resilience thread, and I believe he ended up with:

    *PvP Power being roughly 25% better than main stats point for point, and
    *PvP gems grant double the amount of points in gems than main stats do.
    37 + (3*7) + (3*7)

    Gem for straight pvp power, unless you get tunneled and need more resil
