So I have an low geared alt that I decided to toss a PVP offhand to. Then I noticed something odd.
If I have Lei Shen's Orb of Command (502) and compare it to Grievous Gladiator's Endgame (522) and calculate the value as if I put a typical red +160 intelligence gem in the socket, those 20 ilvls only give 8 intelligence. Not a typo. "8."
When Mists came out it was a rather important change that PVP gear was equivilent to PVE gear (in PVE situations) of the same ilvl. Did this get reversed?
