All I would like bioware to do (which I think is pretty fair) would be for the people that have BM pieces and have spent hours getting those pieces is to be able to turn said pieces in for war hero equivalents when 1.6 goes live. PLEASE!!
Uhhhh. What about the people who have WH pieces who have spent dozens of hours getting those pieces. Should they be able to turn said pieces in for elite war hero pieces when 1.6 goes live? Of course not!
No. There's a progression element included for a reason. WH gear will be all but given away next patch. Rejoice; there's very little difference between WH and EWH, so they're fixing the gear gap.
BM gear will still EXIST; it just won't be sold any longer.
