Gear repair with gold

In expansion announcement, I noticed that gear upgrades and repair will be available with gold. I think its a great idea!! I think it will boost the pvp. I was wondering, would there be a chance of implementing it before the expansion? Maybe not full engineering but repairs? Trying to get the bd for repairs is such a hassle.

We will not be making any updates to the live game or existing clients. All new features and content are in the Expansion.
