I really dislike when mmo's have seperate pvp gear, IMO if i wanna go in with gear I earned from pve I should not be penalized for it. It really kills pvp when they seperate the gear, because it makes the pve gear pointless, since there ends up being no more use for it (like wow, where raiding is completly dead ended due to 0 uses for the raid gear) I'd prefer it if, the best pvp gear is the best pve gear, that way everyone is equil in the pvp area's. I never understood why devs cannot understand that basic principal.
Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:
A. Proven right (if something bad happens)
B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)
Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!
