I need someone who knows the answer to this question to please respond as soon as you can. Do you know for certain if the PvP set bonus transfers over when you move the mods, enhancements and armoring? I just switched to synthweaving so that I can craft augmented jedi gear for myself and a friend and it's kind of important that I get an answer to this question as soon as possible. I'm considering crafting augmented war hero gear but if the set bonus will transfer to any other orange gear set then I'll just do that instead because the War Hero gear for jedi knights looks kind of dumb. (stupid troopers getting all the coolest looking gear... )

Please let me know as soon as you can.

Awesome. Thank you. I'll look into this as soon as I've crafted my first piece of augmented war hero gear.

Set bonus is on the armoring for WH. So move that in and you can load up the mod and enhancement with whatever you want. You'll also note that the armoring has piece limitation on it (head/chest/etc) to prevent farming 1 piece over and over to get the full bonus.

Ya know, all in all I actually like the stats on my war hero gear. There's some accuracy but not too much and there is A LOT of surge and power. So Im happy for that as well. My crit may decrease by a small margin though but I'm willing to accept that for the significant increase in surge and power that I'm getting.

While you can follow the rule of "gear that is new in 1.2 or later has the set bonus on the mods," there are also a couple ways to tell if a set bonus will transfer by looking at an item you have:

1. Open the modification window for the item, then mouseover the Armoring. If the tooltip for the Armoring lists a set bonus, then it is the source of the bonus.

2. If the item is equipped, check the set bonus criteria in the item tooltip. Instead of seeing something like "War Hero Force-Master's Boots" you will see "War Hero Force-Master's Boots (Armoring)." The (Armoring) indicates that the set bonus is coming from the mod, not the gear.

I have a Battle Master Chest piece and the armoring has the (chest) tip when I mouseover. I moved the items from a Vendor BM chest to a custom Augmented BM chest and the tool tip is not giving me the bonus. This does not seem to be working for me.
It is not transferring the bonus.
I can send screenshots if needed.

Battlemaster bonuses are not supposed to transfer with the Armoring. (does the armoring say it has a bonus? no)
And crafted Battlemaster pieces do NOT have any bonus on the shell.

You misinterpreted the yellow text. He explained that the way to see if the Armoring has the bonus is NOT by seeing if it has the (chest) on mouseover, but the set bonus criteria should have (armoring) in it.

So working as intended.

I was certainly bummed that the BatlleMaster bonuses didn't transfer as well. I switched from Artifice to Synthweaving for the new craftable PVP gear for this purpose. It's my own daggon fault for not verifying beforehand.
