nice! a bit low on crit for my liking (i had 30 percent til recently, lowered by 1% for a bit more power bc the math supports it)

i get 6700k crits on blade storm too, i think ive even seen 7k hehe
(6900 for sure and i have a screenie of an 8k hit, think that was master strike though heh)

972 - 1141 primary dmg
222-333 secondary dmg
99.67 accuracy
29.05% crit chanc
78.80 surge
19006k health

Thanks for the guide, any plans on an Annihilation equivalent?

I would think it is likely very close to the same but you may could replace some of the stuff that has accuracy or crit with willpower/power combo to boost your dots and force scream.

Just guessing though. I'm combat spec.

So if I already got full Weaponmaster gear, should I just get 4 pieces of Vindicator gear for the set bonus and keep the other weaponmaster stuff or should I get full vindicator gear and totally ditch the weaponmaster?

A good useful thread, no posts in a while...

Ive got the Vindicator WH saber - what bout the offhand? Im looking at this in light of the Elite WH later on. Looking at the stats of the Elite WH sabers, is it still better to get a Vindicator for the offhand or should I go for a Weaponmaster offhand saber?

Go for Vindicator for main and offhad, you will only use the hilts from the elite weapons anyway

I have Full Vindicator WH gear with Elite Vindicator Weapons, currently spec'd Annihilation with 17xx str, 35.8% crit% and 78.8% Surge fully buffed with stims.

In preparation for specing into Carnage, I'm gathering enhancements from War Hero Force-Mystic's Lightsaber and mods from War Hero Vindicator's Lightsaber, both having high power. Is this a good idea?

What stat numbers should I aim for Carnage?

Correct. The guide needs to be updated for v.1.4. Not sure if he will get around to it though.

You can now save a tremendous amount of comms due to the fact that the WH weapons no longer require a BM piece to be traded in for them.

Previously we were getting the Mods from Vindicator Gloves, and the Enhancements from Consular Force-Mystic Gloves or you could also get the Enhancements from Smuggler Field Tech Boots and use the other items for your healer companion (Not a bad route if you don't PvE with a guild and get free Columi/Rakata drops for your companions).

However after v1.4 no one should be doing this. You will waste boat loads of comms.

You should now be getting your Mods from the WH Vindicator Saber (2,000 RWZ Comms) and your Enhancements from WH Force-Mystic Saber (2,000 RWZ Comms). Neither require a BM piece to be traded in.

If you go the old route and buy the gloves and boots you will pay 875 wz comms per BM glove + 2,000 rwz comms to trade the glove in on the WH piece. Which means the old route will run you 96,250 wz comms whereas getting your parts from the sabers will now run you 28,000 RWZ comms or 84,000 wz comms.

Even if you grind every day for several hours this still saves you about 2 weeks.

Its the same grind for either the weaponmaster or the vindicator... but the 4 piece set bonus is better on the Vindicator. However you won't get the set bonus until you can rip the WH armorings out since the BM set bonus is attached to the armor shell.
Hey guys, I know I'm doing kind of a thread-necro thingy here, but I really wanted to find this out:

From my understanding in this post, the set bonuses for BM is tied to the armor shell, while for the WH it is tied to the armoring mods. What if I were to take the Vindicator WH armorings and put them in a Weaponmaster BM armor shell? Would I get both set bonuses or just one? If just one, then how do I know which one will I be getting?

The reason I ask this is that I am already fully Weaponmaster BM-geared on my marauder (ouch, I know),and about to embark on the Vindicator WH gear grind soon. What do you guys think?
