It’s great that people want to PVE but the idea of bringing PVE gear into PVP is ridiculous. That conversation has been going on a long time (since T4 gear was introduced!) and arguing over what needs to be changed on PVE gear to balance it out is beating a dead horse at this point. We know this will never change.
So instead of trying to balance item stats, let’s consider a different solution.
Create a separate mini game mode like tournament mode where everybody is stripped (Disabled like when path of asura is blocked in a mini now) of such things as OP runes, p2w crit pots, RF rings, and PVE armor/accessories and placed in class specific PVP T1 gear where changing equipment is not allowed once you’re in the mini. If you’re melee you get the combat rings. If you’re a mage you get the magic rings. The back and neck pieces are the default protection ones.
AA can stay in and allowed since it would break many classes without it. Food and standard HP/STAM/MANA pots can be used as well.
The PVP gear was balanced for PVP (a long time ago) – why don’t you let the community play on a balanced field.
