Im pretty sure pvp players are making the comparison to show bw/ea how stupid bolster is right now.
Thanks for understanding - I actually have no interest in PvE gear, but bolster is crazy right now.
It isn't even about EWH gear being 'useless', far from it. It's that I just 'upgraded' 2 pieces of EWH to Partisan (The new tier 1 lvl 55 pvp set) and after the effects of bolster there was zero improvement.
But I need partisan in order to get conqueror.
It's like coming from full dreadguard, then being told you need to grind another
set of dreadguard before you can get the new set.
