    You're playing an MMO.

    It's fine that there are overlaps in sources of BiS gear between pvp, raid and dungeons.

    There's nothing to fix.

    I would rather make sure that there is always some source for most of the stat combinations.

    Reforging is shit. There's nothing interesting in "always reforge worst stat to best stat". Plus it sucks havin to spend gold before being able to use an item.

    No, never bring that shit back.

    I would agree if we were still in MoP where stat weights were pretty much set in stone. But this isn't the case and there's a lot of misinformation running rampart here.

    - Is reforging annoying? To a degree, yes. I remeber having to sim/recalculate every single item to get the most out of an item and not being able to just slap it right away.

    - is reforging a thing to the past based on outdated design? Again, yes. Hit/expertise aren't a thing anymore, and reforging was basically a crutch to make so you were always capped. Guess what, they removed the stats shortly after and with them reforging.

    However. Talking about stat weights right now is nonsense, mostly because their relative values are so close to each other that a lot of specs have values wiggling all around all the time and it's more than possible that once you have enough of one others become better (not the case for everyone ofc but for most). You never know when because it depends on all your other gear. I mean, you can use Pawn and its pretty green arrows and % upgrades, but to make it work correctly you have to get your weight every time you change an item. Otherwise they're useless.

    There's a reason why Raidbots "Top Gear" is really good - because it literally sims your character with all the options you choose and gives you the answer for that specific moment. Right now, it's the easies way to see if an item is an upgrade (but it's still simulations). Reforging can have a place as a "very endgame" thing where you basically have more or less all your gear and you want to squeeze out that few more % from it. And it'll end with an addon doing the calculations for you and zero actual interaction from the player.

    Anyway, to answer OP's question: yes, reforging can be interesting, but the problem now is literally getting the gear. Too scarce and too RNG dependant. VP for M+ are a good addition and they need to do something similar for raids.
    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.

    the only reason people think pvp has the bis gear is because the internet told them so

    it would be a nightmare to sim item with reforge so not thanks

    Here are your obvious forum options:

    -They suck and never could design a good game
    -Ion Hazzikostas
    -They don't care
    -They want to force their ideas down our throats
    -They are idiots
    -They just want to milk us
    .....

    ......


    .......

    -It is not that simple
    -there is no fix needed for the vast majority of ppl outside the forum circlejerk

    Obviously it cannot be one of the last two options ^^

    I dont agree with the proposed solution but it really is not a difficult problem to solve. Put it all on a vendor for a currency you earn from whatever activity you participate in. Its so simple they do this in half the fucking game already.

    Lol plz i had to do at least 30 M+ to get to 202, if blizzard had to do something is nerf WQ gear, it totally trivialize the 1-9 bracket in m+ and ppl are just trying 10+ knowing absolutely nothing.

    Some of us find shopping list gearing boring.

    FF exists for those that prefer that style.

    I actually agree with this. FFXIV's gearing and content is also incredibly dull but that's another matter.

    My idea:
    MoP minus rep gating badge gear + more dungeons and keep reforging out.

    Literally no one would lose out.

    At no point would you stop getting gear from bosses. I guess you all ignored pvp gear this expansion as well. Too good for pve I suppose.
