When you hit 50 you should be capped on both, normal and ranked comms. Use normals to buy mainhand weapon, take mods out and use them in orange offhand weapon then use the shell and your ranked comms to buy an EWH mainhand. This is prolly what the person meant youre supposed to do. After that start buying WH gear until you got it all done.
So you're saying to buy the EWH MH before buying anything else? Is the increase of damage and expertise from EWH MH with the WH OH mods better than combined stats/expertise from full WH armor? I'm just assuming I won't be able to get everything right off the bat. Trying to figure out which way to start off.
