All characters now have a base Resilience of 65%.
Battle Fatigue now reduces the amount of healing and absorbs by 45%, up from 30%.
PvP Power bonus to healing is now based on class and specialization.
Healing specializations receive a 100% bonus to healing from PvP Power.
Damage specializations for Druids, Monks, Paladins, Priests, and Shamans receive a 70% bonus to healing from PvP Power.
All other specializations and classes (including tanking) receive a 40% bonus to healing from PvP Power.

Since "All characters now have a base Resilience of 65%." will it be easier for pveers with excellent pve gears(like Htot gears) to kill pvpers with pvp gears(like Tyrannical gears) ?

No, because PvP gear will still have PvP power.

And all gear in BGs/Arenas is normalized to the iLevel of Pvp gear, so you can't really use higher iLevel PvE gear.

Get ready for an outbreak of BiS double Blood dk's in 2s. All these changes are setting them up nicely.

I'm sorry, but that is bull.

Blood deathknights couldn't stand up to any double dps comp that has a frost mage in it.

And with the amount of CC and roots, you can effectively control one of the blood deathknights.

Just bc you dont believe it, doesnt make it untrue. And I suppose every single 2s comp contains a frost mage?

2s srs business.

And losing to double blood would be pretty embarrassing for anyone.

Apparently numbers were crunched and high end PvE gear will be BiS in Arena's and BG's by a small margin.

Yeah, actually.

Go look at the 2s ladders.

Unholy/Heals would be able to beat double blood deathknight as well.

Not sure why PVE gear would be better than PVP gear when it still has equal secondary stats AND pvp power. Sure.. it's getting nerfed but that PVP power sure as heck makes a difference. Also, unless your set effects are worth a loss of ~1200-3000 PVP power then I don't see the point.

Source?

BGs, Arena and RBG will have ilvl cap... making PvP gear superior to PvE gear.

What I think you are talking about is Wpvp. High End PvE gear is supposed to have a slight advantage over high end PvP gear.... but how many people you gank while questing will be in Heroic ToT gear?

Battlegrounds, Rated Battlegrounds, and Arenas now have an ilevel cap. All gear will be scaled down to ilevel 496.

You wont get to one shot people gearing alts because you worked hard capping points in 2s at 1400 mmr? Good.

2s srs business.

The hole in the new system is tanks

This is why we have new rules for flag carriers.


This guy knows what's up.

other than the exception of trinkets..no. pvp gear wins assuming similar ilevel. Most pve trinkets have been dealt with already for pvp scenarios though.

As others have mentioned...tanks will need to be watched. But preemptively..blizzard has nerfed the tanking roles...flag carriers substantially.
