Ppl can what they want but filling out your gear with pvp epics is a very time consuming task....Sure it may not get the glory of pve epics, but it still takes dedication and time none the less.....I'm up to 4 pieces of my S2 set and have the S2 staff and I'm very happy with that accomplishment so far.
Yes, it's very grueling, especially when I don't really like PvP.
Anyways, completed S2 set, minus gloves, which I managed a while ago to get S3. Working on the off-set stuff now, but my hearts not really in it. I'm sure I'll burst into a PvP grind mood again soon.
I had a mage /point and /laugh at me, who was in full T6. As you can see from my sig, WoW is not my main game, so my time is spent mostly in FFXI. But I did have to wonder at how much time was spent getting that set that could have been spent doing something else....
