finishing a second set, fixing the "You can't stack two 2-piece bonuses, sneaky Rogrux!" situation any more.
While I'm not terribly upset by this, I think the "Whoops guys, our bad." is a flippant and arrogant response. I know it wasn't likely Bash who did this, and it's unfair to put him in the spotlight to be directed all of this anger.
Also, mostly what people are upset at is that a valuable currency (Honor, Conquest, Justice and Valor points) were converted early into a worthless currency (in game gold). Those who worked really hard to get enough currency to buy what they were told was going to be available, then couldn't, feel offended.
The differences between PVP and PVE in this game are becoming staggering. Some play the game specifically and only for PVP, some do the same only for PVE. Why they decided to give the PVP side a week grace period? Not sure, but they decided to do it.
It would be like saying, "Next week you'll be able to purchase all of your Cataclysm Tier-1 raid pieces with Justice points, but only for one week." and then instead completely removing those items from the game. People who wanted to finish out a second set, or in some cases a third set, are left holding currency they didn't really want in the first place.
