    Mage PvP - PvE items viable as of 5.3, similar to in Cataclysm?

    Alright, so with the upcoming patch of 5.3, PvP resilience has been removed from most gear, and every level 90 has 65% baseline resilience. Does this make the 2 piece bonus of the tier from 5.1 (483, 496 or 509 il) viable? Seeing as these two pieces combined gives 12% damage buff to Ice Lance.
    This is a similar effect to Cataclysm, where the top players would be rolling PvE trinkets, legs, and in some other cases other pieces.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Pretty sure that's going to happen, especially with the high Itemlevel PVE Pieces. (535, 541)

    Despite the fact that every item will be scaled down to 496 for PvP?

    If mathematically a 12% buff to Ice Lance can beat the cca 1k PvP Power you'd be missing out on, then yes.
