I feel like with a little research you could have investigated the EWH stats (rolling on PTS, checking Dulfy's site) and known you should have stocked up on gloves instead of boots or whatever.
I'd prefer it if we were talking about the supposed warzone xp nerf and pre-1.6 EWH weapon barrels/hilts not being properly updated, if this is indeed the case.
You are completely right, I should have researched but being min maxed in july/august kind of put me relaxed a bit and said to myself i got the gear, i just need to stack the comms. I did not bother to check the PTS and I should have. Guess ... it is my fault for thinking they would keep the cycle they kept so far.
