For one thing, we allow individual piece matching against chest color in 1.2.
On top of that, we full mod customization of all purple gear in 1.2, including the ability to extract and transfer endgame set bonuses onto custom gear.
I recall seeing that set bonuses are going to be attached to the Armoring, is that right? If so, why is this the case? What if I liked a set bonus from a previous tier, or maybe the DPS set bonus on my Tank gear for various reasons?
