The gear dependence is out of control. It makes battlegrounds a horrible experience, arenas exponentially harder, and RBGs? Have you ever seen a leader looking for players WITHOUT gear?
My cousin started a RAF account with me 2 months into MOP, he actually quit because the pvp grind was too frustrating for him. The argument I made was, "It will get better after a month." While true, he decided it wasn't worth it, and I do not blame him.
Also, I'm trying kitty cleave for the first time with my long time 3's team. We are all playing alt characters and tried arena for the first time this week. As a double melee team with no pvp weapons, we won around 15-20% of our games. (Some wins were from enemy disconnects) The gear disparity was too great to overcome.
Pvp items are rarely used in pve, as long as this stays consistent, why should pvp gear take so long to obtain? I only pvp and would love to have 2-3 toons to play on, but it's too hard to keep them geared and competitive. It's hard to even LEARN a new class correctly in the current system. Waiting for next season shouldn't be the only good answer.

This is exactly the boat im in. Levelled alts and its daunting to step into arena with dreadful gear and heroic weapon. At least Arena games should be quick for me, either quick loss or a lucky win
