ahhhh... here is the answer for my questions!
But WHY for goodness sake, is it all designed such a way, that if you are Shadow Infil, you HAVE TO use sages or tanks gear?
Not to mention the usefulness of WH gear in PVE.
WH boots have better stats than BH boots for PVE content.
WH stalker boots offer more surge and power (I guess) than BH ones..
WHAT is the point of it?
My guess is to keep the player busy reaching a goal so as to not unsub, hehe.
I'm just using straight EWH gear with overkill/power augments in all 14 pieces, and I do pretty darn well.
