Original post & title: Bliz Confirmed:best PvP gear from PvE in xpac


Statement starts at 10 minutes in, takes about 30 seconds to get to the admission.


Follow up post:
Hold tight, per Lore's posts #50 and #55, they're going to do some more explaining, and do not intend that we'll have to raid to have even odds in PvP.

Misleading title is misleading.

What Tom said was that someone wearing the absolute best PvE gear in the game might have a 7% advantage over someone who had just hit level 100 -- and thus, had not collected any gear at all. There was nothing about his statement at all that could be taken as "the best gear for PvP comes from PvE." I have no idea how you could have gotten that from what he said, unless you're purposefully trying to stir up trouble.

Our intent -- as it has been for several expansions now, and as it is currently in Warlords -- is for PvP gear to be the best available in PvP. That has not changed in Legion.

I'm curious how you guys will accomplish that with the complete removal of "pvp gear."

Hopefully more info soon to clarify this gray area.

Yep, definitely something that needs clarifying. At the moment, we're just waiting for developers to get back from gamescom so we can be sure we have all of our facts straight.
