New PvP gear and why ?

After we had all the issues with stealth rings and coward rings and then stamina and AP drains. Why do the devs go and make PvP gear that now gives the players a damage bonus against players when they dodge or block ? Just seems so silly as we need them skills in game and should not be punished for using a dodge or block. What we need is a simple PvP system not all these crazy bonuses that players can find ways to exploit.

    That new armour will create balance issues with and to all classes, if you look at them, some pieces benefit some classes more than others so in the end it's like a buff/nerf to everyone, I can see that + rank 14 enchantments further widening the gap between low/mid tier players and the top ones.

    All of these changes make me wanna puke.
    I came back to this game some time ago after a long break hoping that priv queue would make PvP scene better - and it did for awhile, its dead again though.

    Now all of this, stupid gear bonus, stupid r14 enchants and being forced to spend 50mil AD if you wanna be BiS, without ANY chance to make any proper AD in dungeons..

    Time to leave again lol

    Piece bonuses does seem a bit too strong. It would be better if they focused on fixing the issues at hand instead of introducing new ones.

    i greatly disagree, i cant see a bonus in favour of HR/DC/SW

    You also get several seconds of CC immunity in those cases, assuming the new and glorious cc resist bonus is not gained at one stack per encounter/at will.
