Artifact Relics in PvP

Will there be PvP specific relics? How game-changing will they be?

Why are the artifacts on PvP realms without relics? They alter abilities by as much as 10% dmg, from some low level green relics.

I'd imagine this is important to how the balance of the game plays out...

Can we have a relic vendor for PvP testing?

We are considering disabling relics in PvP instances (battlegrounds, skirmishes, arenas, and rated battlegrounds) due to way gear is handled in PvP in Legion. Item level will not have as much impact in PvP which throws off the balance of relic itemization.
