Back into WoW after a looooooooong time, so wanted to start it light by playing some PVP. I was thinking of joining Blackrock, but I'm wondering if that is at all possible without donating for gear? Is there anything separating high gs players from low gs in BGs and arena? How is the gearing process? Smooth, even or just 1 shots?

Also, saw an article on Horde always being losers in BGs. Is that true?
