At what point is it not worth using pvp gear?

I mean like. I have the dreadful helmet, but I'm currently using the engineering purple goggles. If I replace it with the dreadful, I lose like 240 strength and a 240 stamina, yet gain about 400 pvp power and resilience.

I'm not so sure about the weights for those stats so is 400 pvp power better than 240 strength?

for pvp, use pvp gear.

If you're good at the game you're fine in PVP gear if the ilevel is adequate. No one will know or care provided you keep your DPS up.

It really depends on the stat. If you are in heroic gear and Sha of Anger drops PvP gear it will always be better then what you have. My feral druid is using Malevolent Gladiator's Boots of Alacrity and I don't play PvE.

^ Clearly didn't read the topic

And to the other people, i'm not talking about using pvp gear for pve, i'm talking about using pve gear for pvp, if that pve gear is a much higher item level than the pvp gear that I have available. So basically, I lose a lot of other stats, but only gain some pvp power and resilience.

A lot of PvP gear is actually pretty good when gearing up now, since they have secondary stats on them outside of PvP ones.

If you're in a heroic, it's fine to use pvp gear. In LFR, who cares. Bring it to a raid, though, a you deserve the kick.

Not really. Basically everyone is telling him it is ok to use pvp gear in pve. That's not what he is asking. What he is asking is ilvl 480 pve helm better for PVP than a 450 pvp helm. If not, what is the threshhold?
