    I don't think they need to lower the gear at all, currency systems like this work wonders to fill in bad RNG, I just feel it needs a cap and to not be account wide, much like Valor back in the day.

    As a reward yes, but not to roflstomp people who have no gear.

    Also, they implemented a half assed system. They never really tried the complete gear normalization.

    They should. The only thing that stops them is their horrible hardcore gamer bias.

    except benthic vendor gear is not a currency system where you get what you are spending for, stats on the gear are random so bad RNG is present here too, same catch up mechanism different expansion, this is nothing new.

    "Benthic gear have predetermined stats, meaning there is no RNG to which stats you will get on each slot."

    the only reason that it is a "creates" item is so they don't have put an item for each armor type of the vendor, it's just cleaner.

    That's a sentiment I see repeated pretty often in any multiplayer RPG. People don't want fair PVP. They want to be able to basement dwell and have their 587 hours spent in the game let them smash someone who hasn't spent as much time as them. And not because the time was spent practicing and getting better as a player, but because their gear is higher level.

    It's complete nonsense. PVP is player vs player. Which means that PLAYER should be the determining factor, not "my gear is better than yours so you always lose and I always win." It would be like wanting a chess match where your opponent always starts with less pieces because you've been playing chess longer. I mean...wtf, how do people think that's a good idea?

    But the game design in MMO's has always been Gear > Skill
    Should we put an end to this design? Its tradition in MMO's.

    I am a "fighting game" addict.
    If i lose constantly in WoW because of item level or because its an unfavourable matchup...i just play Tekken for a while to clear my frustration.
    (im rank Mighty Ruler in Tekken)

    Do you really feel we should put an end to Gear > Skill in MMO's ?

Exclusivity in past came from content it self. By doing raids you get to see content and get exclusive gear which was huge drive for playres to do raiding. Than they removed see content by adding diffuculty levels ala LFR and now even they removed gear as inciative while Blizz didnt add any exclusive rewards to high end content. Why there isnt exclusive seasonal transmog rewards for finishing +15 mythic+ or mythic raid? Blizzard get rid of every single inciative to do high end content just for sake some entilted casuals can get their hands on gear what they dont need at all. Throwing at people free 430 heroic loot for sake of progressin without any challenge or effort is absolutly insane and it do not keep players longer becouse they have no emocional connetion to effort vs reward. It is hollow feelling and makes people dont care. And if people dont care they start quiting game.

    Imagine League od Legends had raiting system what will allow pro players reach high rank in 1 week. Than you would have casuals what are not that good or no willing to put effort but those people could still reach high raiting just by playing longer. That game would instaly die.
    You won't be seeing anyone stuck in heroic in a guild that does progress on mythic bro. What I agree with you tho, is that mythic should have something that you can't achieve after current content, they should at least start with a cutting edge for mythic. I don't aprove of a really cool mount or anything like that because it's not really fair, I'm sorry that I'm being selfish here.

    It should be something like 80-85% player and 20-15% gear. Gear would serve as an insentive to have an advantage and a progression but not completely meaningless, at the same time, with that ratio a very good player should stomp a bad one even if they have a big ilvl difference.

    Only in the games where gamers with the best gear designed the game. It is nothing but a bias. Also, the reasons why they do it are complete bullshit. Mainly based on ideas they never proved.

    "People want to be able to kill everyone only because of gear".. what a dense bullshit considering the fact only a very few have the best gear.

    You do not talk about the people, but about the elite. Actually, catering PVP to ilevel is nothing but elitism.

    And surely not really accessible. Everyone who plays pvp without a high ilevel is cannon fodder. Which means 80% of the players.

    What do you mean pick? I got 2 different items from the same token, pretty sure you can get different stats... this RNG by definition.

    You cant pick the back you want?

    But there are several backs with different special abilities...and i was told you could pick one of the many different and interesting backs.

    I could be wrong...but thats what i was told.
    You know more than i do since you are logged in PTR though :S

    EDIT:
    It says on frontpage this

    "Benthic gear have predetermined stats, meaning there is no RNG to which stats you will get on each slot."

    But i was wrong in thinking you could pick the special abilities. I THINK there is RNG there.

    So...

    9x5=45

    9x20=180

    9x60=540

    total: 765

    10 per day = 76 days?
    also remember people will most likely buy a few of the tokens to try and get the best stats, so yes if you want LITERALLY just 430 sure it will take 76 days, but if you want full BIS 430, then you will need alot longer.

    Your choice is "slot" not "i want this specific item"
    so while yes it does remove alot of RNG it does not remove all of it, but thats fine, if the entirety of RNG was removed it would be WAAAAAY too powerful

    Speed is a random added stat, the gear from the vendor can gain avoidance, leech, speed, indestructable, but i dont think they can titanforge, and i dont think they can gain a socket.
    but the items i think have random stats. would need to do some more testing.
