    PVP 5.4 - First Impressions

    So, for those of you who enjoy PVP, what are your thoughts on Hunters so far in 5.4?

    I'm a total BG Hero, so I can't speak to much in terms of talents and strategy for Arena compositions, but I did quite a few BGs last night as Marksmanship.

    So far, my damage output seems incredibly low. Like a good DPS player, I was focusing healers as much as I could, but even with Rapid Fire, Heroism, Stampede, and Widow's Venom on an enemy healer, I couldn't put up enough pressure to get him low enough to Silencing Shot -> Kill Shot -> Kill Shot. I'm sitting in item level 516 PVE gear (which may be part of my troubles: it gets normalized to 496 with no PVP Power), and I think the highest crit I saw all night was around 35,000.

    Does anyone have a full set of PVP gear to see how much PVP Power is making a difference with the new 72% base resilience change? I'm curious about how to gem gear as I earn it. Agility only? PVP Power only? Mix of both to match socket colors?

    What about specs? Has anyone tried BM or Survival and had any impressive results?

    I am asking other hunters if it makes a difference.

    I've started farming it, but I can't do it overnight. I just wanted to know what others with more gear are seeing.

    its around 35% extra damage if you switch to full pvp gear from the pvp power and set bonuses alone.
    There is NO reason to use pve gear in pvp nowadays unless you want a specifik OP trinket.
