I just turned Level 50 a while ago and I heard that you have to get ER really high (mine being on only 550). I am working towards getting all the WH armour, but am also keeping my PVE stuff, having noticed that people keep two separate pieces of armour.
But what does ER actually do? And what is a good number to be at?
The free recruit gear should give around 800-900, no?
At any rate, once you get around 1200, you will notice a marked increase in your pvp performance.
