Quick note from the latest patch changes (source):
- All PvP 4-piece bonuses have had their flat stat values cut in half. Primary stats are very powerful in Cataclysm, so much so that players were considering using PvP gear in PvE just because of these primary stat bonuses.
Yes, we were one of those players. (Considering? Hah,) I figure this makes the 4pc PvP set equal to or slightly behind PvE offset gear. So, if you’ve been PvPing solely to build a 4pc gear set, you can stop now. If you already have the 4pc (and don’t have a replacement), don’t worry too much, but grab replacements from 5-mans when you can. (If you’ve somehow already acquired 4pc Vicious, keep using it until you get equivalent epics.)
I don’t want to even talk about Resto getting their root removal back; that just seems really odd, since they couuld already dispel them.
