So, with the news that you can get a tabbard for completing a battleground and a pet if you win one, it got me thinking. Why cant you make any money in PVP? Sure you can get a small amount of copper from killing and looting players, but that doesnt add up. Why cant there be a way to make money in PVP? People have to make money thru pve to respec so that they can pvp. They PVP for their gear, but then they have to turn around and PVE so that they can gem and enchant their shiny new purples.
This doesnt really make alot of sense to me. You dont have to PVP to be good at PVE, but you do have to do the opposite. This got my thinking....why cant corpses of players drop a bit more silver (not out of their own pocket) or some vendor trash. Also, why not make the drop rate for greens, blues, and epics slightly worse for PVP and make them drop from players. To make it so that the game does not get slowed down, there will be no rolls on these items. Whoever has the right to loot it (much like PVE) is the one who get the item. Whoever loots the body, the item goes automatically to who it was supposed to go to like auto loot.
This would make it a bit more profitable for players who prefer PVP to do what they want. PVPers dont have to run BT or SWP to get PVP gear, so why should they have to PVE for money. Well thats about it for my rant. This comes from someone who has septn much more time in the PVE aspect of the game. I have done my share of PVP and enjoy it, but there is really no profit to be had.
