Obviously she's going to get clobbered by anyone with some type of gear, especially as a Rogue.
My question is.. why should a player have to go through this? Yes, the 5.2 changes will make this easier, but it will NOT make it any easier grinding those first four pieces. It's hell. I'm practically useless outside of throwing in a good opener for OTHER people to take advantage of.
Doing Silvershard Mines.. DK grips me, he wasn't red so he didn't pop his trinket. He walks over to me, I use Feint because I KNOW inc stupid damage. Instead, I'm met with a 106k crit. I was around 70% health so I know it wasn't an execute type ability (I know DKs got some kind of execute this XPack).
Now what annoys me about this is the fact that I have to build so many combo points to do awful damage to someone with better gear, all this guy has to do is Outbreak and Obliterate (that's the only ability that could've even hit that hard, I'm guessing?).
I'm not complaining about class balance.. but jesus, can we add some gear brackets for PVP? Perhaps if you're below a certain item level, you're only grouped with people of a certain item level, and only face people of a certain item level (it'd obviously be an interval)? I feel practically useless, and I hear our survivability problems don't exactly get that much better later on.
I'm trying not to come off like a whiney noob here (I'm sure I am) but something should be done about this. We wonder why PVP participation is so low right now, I'll give you the definitive answer. It is WAY too frustrating to build a character for PVP nowadays. Let me elaborate.. the gear grind is the same as always, but the GAP between players with gear and without is truly disgusting, ESPECIALLY when Blizzard said something along the lines of...
"We plan on fixing the gap between players with and without gear" - Blizzard, Pre-MoP
Yes, they added some baseline resilience, but it doesn't do anything. My health is 50k below everyone else's. Why not add a system that, anyone below a certain health value is normalized to 350k health? They're just random BGs. It's not competitive, it's not destroying anything by letting other players get a chance to have fun.
EDIT: This is in the Arena forums because it is the closest sub-thread related to PVP that Blizzard will actually take a look at, for that is my goal here, to get Blizzard's attention.
