Currently using the 491 LFR Taoren with the 500 Agi gem. Getting back into PvP and was wondering if anyone had insight on whether the PvP 470 bow/gun is better to use. I have mixed feelings on it, as I don't know how truly powerful PvP power is yet(I know its good, but HOW good).
Is it worth losing 700 ranged weapon DPS, 540 agility, and some odd stats for 4800 PvP power, 700 resil, and disarm duration reduction? Gut reaction is yes, but would like a little insight from you other more experienced PvP guys.
when I started using the pvp weap on my mage I noticed a huge rise in damage over the course of a game, the pvp power was worth more than my 2/2 sha touched weps even tho stat wise the pvp wep was shit in comparison
Sad as it is to say it, you will probably see an increase in damage with the crappy honor weapon against high res opponents. In random bgs you can just roll with the pve weap though, most of them dont have more than a piece or two of melevolent (usually mixed with greens >.<).
Get the honor weapon, it's enough pvp power to outweigh the other stat losses, also resilience is really good, I mean REALLY good.

Yeah, god forbid current season pvp gear is better than pve gear in arenas. Why should players who are only interested in pvp have to play pve to be competitive? Also pvp power has the same effect on high resi targets as it has on low resi, it's a flat increase no matter how you look at it, it doesn't negate pvp resi or anything.
