I don't see why PvP'ers cant still earn their iLvl 512 Elite gear and have it scaled down in "instanced' pvp like the PvE geared players.
Wouldn't this solve the wPvP issues and well as give PvP'ers something to work towards?
Only issue with this I can see is when 5.4 rolls around there's a chance that the 512 gear will barely be edged out by new conquest gear, which means less incentive next tier. Also, they said they were going to slowly increase the ilvl cap for pvp so that new PvE gear wouldn't be an advantage (due to how slowly players aquire conquest gear compared to PvE gear.) Which would put 512 pvp gear at an immediate advantage, which would just contradicts the changes made in the first place.
PvE set bonus not work in instanced PvP
By the Gods, yes; please.
"which means less incentive next tier" -
I'd take less incentive next tier than alienating my core pvp'ers by giving them no incentive this tier. They are going to lose subs over this.
They could add fancy enchants, gems or even the OP PvE trinkets for CPs that could add incentive in the next tier.

Even if this does happen, dodge/parry/mastery on the PVE gear will still beat out the PVP gear stats for tanks. What Blizz needs to do is make the PVP gear more attractive to FCs, like maybe actually giving them set bonuses to increase thier survivability vs other players. In the case of warriors removing the disarm set bonus and replacing it with battle stance dmg reduction does 0 for warrior FCs...
And they shouldn't add anything that is truely OP. I think we are trying to get away from anything being too OP.
But I think players who have grinded CP should be on level playing fields gear wise in instanced PvP so you don't have that hump to pass if you got in late the season or had to take a break.
The ilvl cap for this season would stay at 496 for all gear. The 512 gear would be only viable in open world for wPvP and farming purposes.
Unfortunately I really don't see them adding PvP set just for FCs. The disarm effect is also really going to hurt me FCing. but Dodge and parry still won't help much against spell cleaves but is def better than the alternative. I'm pretty much stuck running LFR every week hoping to get a FC PVE set till 5.3 it seems.
Please do not force us to do PvE content to be the "best" at PvP "instanced" or non-instanced.
Yes I am sure troll, I only have 5 malv pieces and the rest are quest greens. Hence me complaining about gearing my alt. DURYou said "honor set"... that's malev gear. Not "trolling" at all. Also if you are doing arenas in half PvE greens you deserve to be 1-3 shot (that screams "I don't care"... at least get some dreadful).
