All of these changes to PVP in 5.3 are supposed to lessen the so-called "PVP gear gap," which is apparently so oppressive to new 90s.
Am I the only person that thinks that the premise underlying this is false?
You can buy a set of crafted dreadful for a few thousand gold. You can skip that and grind enough honor in 2 days (WG, TB, IoT, Krasarang Wild PVP rares) for the malevolent set.
Where is this punishing gear gap? It seems to me that earning a viable set of PVP gear is easier than it's ever been.
