A lot of the things we talk about relating to gear being relevant to your character, such as targeting your item rating, are mostly referencing end game gearing only.

The reason for this is that throughout the rest of the game, the vast majority of Mission rewards, especially story, already drop gear intended for your character. Some content also already drops "relevant" gear such as from daily mission crates. What we are talking about is improving the gearing experience at endgame, there are not many changes planned for the rest of the experience.

That being said, if there are particular places that you feel lower level gearing is particularly rough, let us know!

Thanks for the definitive answer, Eric.

Regarding lower level gear, I think the stat distribution per spec and with each slot is pretty rough to this day. I know tertiary stats like alacrity and absorb aren't necessary in leveling but it does highlight the importance of experimentation or trying to maximize on specific builds. It could simply be the scaling, as smaller stat points equal smaller gains but if someone could really feel the change in going for alacrity, absorb, shield etc, I think it would help guide newer players and make leveling more than just having enough HP and DPS. I know it's not a priority and no one in their right mind would be aiming for min-maxing lowbies at this point but it sort of negates the point of lower level gear stat variation and augments entirely, no?

Also, lowbie/sync tanks could use some dps loving!
