We had many seasons destroyed by too strong PvE gear. This time at least the legendaries will not be an issue as Blizzard made an awesome decision and set the legendary cloaks (obtainable in patch 5.4) to not proc against players.

In addition PvE gear will be scaled down to ilvl512 compared to the ilvl522 of conquest PvP gear. It's up for the debate if the very strong PvE trinket procs will outwheigh the new PvP trinket setbonus or not but there is reason for hope that the next and probably final season of MoP will not be based around PvE gear like S4, S8 and S11.

Thank you Mr. Holinka!

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

Been enjoying the TR with some friends and it feels so much better than live. Here is to hoping they make live arena similar. :)

I think he talks about the previous version of the legendary cloaks wich are already available in game.
Anyways the actual version will just grant 140 of your primary stat since they all have 602 of the primary on them when they get scaled down to 496 item level and not 682 like the pvp cloaks.

Gem slots are counted in to the item budget, so they've got less intellect / stamina etc on them then the PvP once and they're lacking PvP power too

Isn't TR 5.3? I mean if they are still changing classes and such, they would have to keep updating it.

yes but it's not 1:1, a socketed item will ALWAYS be better than a non socketed piece, assuming same ilvl from a main stat perspective, and thats not counting in a possible socket bonus

The current season is at a very good spot balance-wise. There is a comp variety that hasn't been seen in the game since s8.

No so bothered about the stats - its not insanely higher (though correct me if I am wrong, but the PVE items will be dropped below PVP items in terms of ilevel - may well have just imagined I read this though).

However stopping the procs is a good precedent to set - shows that bliz are willing to make that barrier between PVE and PVP and how the power levels vary and how the rewards are/need to be different.

I've always liked the option of PVE in PVP - but more just in terms of customisation not just a freeroll on power level.

http://ptr.wowdb.com...r-boss-x-loot-x is crazy atm on the PTR.

I have 21.81% crit baseline, the trinket procs with EVERY hit and gives me around 1.96% crit, I go up to 60.98% crit in 20hits, and it procs of both white hits and special attacks...

what are the ratio's for gear downscaling to 496 exactly? for example, reduction of 1 ilvl = reduction of ??? percentage of stats

they now have a downscale of stat provided with an upscale of duration.
i know the duration is + 100% (so doubled duration) but does anyone know the percentage of stat reduction? i dont think its halved.

I don't really know how much stat you get from one itemlvl, I just joined arena and checked the stats on the cloak after the downscale.
