Back in WOTLK and CATA, i didnt gem or enchant gear that wasnt at least epic or honor pvp gear. kinda felt like am wasting my gold when i was replacing those pieces in like an hour.
Even now i refuse to gem and enchant heroic gear, epics are too easy to get. I will reforge to get to my hit/exp caps but thats about it. Crafted PVP gear gets replaced so quickly i dont see the point.
Now if you are running around in conquest / honor gear with no enchants/gems/nothing reforged, your either a fucking bot or an idiot who just loves those corpse runs.
Gems/enchantments just dont exist on my server (Horde zangarmarsh), if a guildly isnt online am boned out 150g (gems) to 700g (windsong)
