    They have not made a final choice on this for arenas/battlegrounds but remember most of the PvP will be open world where no gear scaling will be.

    Everytime i read "pvp" my heart fills with evil and joy

    Welcome to the forums btw. Don't know your level of knowledge on it, but there will be no difference in PVE and PVP armor. It will all be PvX. Once game is released I highly doubt there will be gear scaling in arenas, would go against most of what they have expressed as the "plan."

    No PvP gear.
    There will be PvP potions. A few other PvP related items for arenas... I'll have to see if I can find the dev quote sometime this weekend.

    I understand stand that pvp gear will not be a thing but will they scale player stats to make a leveled arena for example... my stats outside of arena are top tier vs. yours that's  beginners gear ... we go into arena, will they buff your gear and nerf mines or just buff everyone to top tier ?

    No one knows yet, but most likely not. The PAX demos will all be using the same tier of gear, so we won't know how arena/bg will work till they clarify. Very early days yet.

    Ok I'm just trying to make sure I'm up to date thank you  unknownsystemerror

    I don't think they mentioned anywhere that pvp would be scaled, which is why they are adding the system to ding players that grief lower level players.

    Wait !!! ding you for killing trash players... WHY !? It's not my fault they trash lol ????

    Not trash, just lower level than your character.

    Not "trash" players, but PKing in the open world will gain you debuffs. Here is an outline of how the system has been explained currently.

    Did someone say PvP ?!?! I love Pvp! Hehehe....anyways, so far no indications of scaling have been noted. Not saying that couldn't change, just that so far nothing has been shared to indicate it would occur.

    A lot of the people will mainly play in the Open PVP, so I highly doubt they will do this as well as the arenas or battlegrounds they decide to implement

    Gear scaling is for trash players playing a Trash game made by Trash Devs. 
    I say NO to scaling. 
    PvP isn't something casual PvE'rs do on the weekend for fun. 
    PvP is for the true elitists who seek to climb to the very peak of the player base. 
    As such they should all grind & craft the best gear. Not just step in there 5 minutes after creating a character &  somehow obtaining the same stats as someone who's spent thousands of hours grinding his skills & gear.

    u know most games nowadays have gear scaling for arena pvp? even WoW.
    true PvP Elitists dont want to grind PvE to be able to have fair and skill based PvP Fights.
    Only Plebs need to Outgear their Opponents.

    I kindly yet firmly disagree. the reason i out gear other players is because i fought against other good players and won BG'S/ARENAS i kicked butt and deserve the gear i wear to show it. I went up against great players that out geared me and WON and scaled up the ranks and bettered my skills along the way! gear scaling is for the weak of hearts, the lazy, and the cry babies! no hard feelings tho :]

    I don't want my gear to be scaled up to someone else's nor theirs to mine, nether do I want to have to pvp to get gear suitable for pvp

    You won't have to. All gear is for everything, there is no specific PvP gear.

    Roger. I completely agree with you. I hate having to have multiple sets for PvE and PvP.

    I feel the exact same way.  I'm coming from a game where they had pvp armor separated from traditional armor for years, and it was always a barrier to entry for new players.  I'm glad that they finally did away with that system.

    What about, not all that much stats on gear to begin with? To take WoW as an example. Let's not have 1k stamina 1k agility and 700 haste/crit on gear. 

    That way, you can still have your good gear, without it massively overpowering other gear. But it is a sign that you're good at your particular function, be it raids/pvp. Just make the gear look good.

    Also, a stat allocation system, like Ragnarok Online for example, allows for some lovely customisation.
