So I have full grevious gear fully gemmed/enchanted/reforged for challenge modes. I do have pve trinkets, legs and weapon with socket.
If you look at a pve item it usually has 4 stats: stam, int, crit, mastery (for example). If you look at a pvp item it has the same 4 stats + pvp power. You don't lose any other stats because you have pvp power. So for challenge modes where every item is ilvl 463 it's not any difference between pve and pvp items. The only difference is some small socket bonuses which gives pvp power, but I just lose around 300 int because of that, which is nothing when you're just going for gold medals. It's not like we're going for realm best.
After quite many tries they got frustrated and just needed to kick someone and ofc I was chosen, even though I was not lowest on dmg. The reason: "You got pvp gear. Fuck off". I tried to explain how pvp geared worked, but their mind were already set.
I enjoy both pve and pvp, but why do always pve'ers hate pvp'ers and refuse to understand anything about it?
