A REAL Solution to gear imbalance in level 50 Warzones

  1. Blue quality level 49 augments are providied with the recruit set.
  2. All Recruit Pieces are Augmented with Mk-6 Slots
  3. Recruit Gear is at Champion level, so that instead of about a 10 level difference, it becomes a 5 i level difference.
3 would also make it so there is a reason to want to gear up, but the gear is not massive stats away.
*ALSO, to encourage alts, war hero gear cost is reduced by 5% per item purchased.
*when i am comparing i levels, i am assuming that recruit is currently at level 51 mods, and that the comparison is to WAR HERO gear, not ELITE WAR HERO.
*Lastly, better itemize PvP gear to have ONLY stats that are beneficial to a class, or create a codex entry that shows the best stats for each advanced class.

Reason for purchase reduction: it is faster to gear up alts, and the cost reduction is account-wide, but must cap out at a reasonable level (so that way you could not get 100% reduction).

If you're planning on pvp theres a lot of things you can do to prepare for 50+ WZs if you don't it's your fault and yours alone.

Oh my......

It takes so little time to get War hero armor now, and we still see these posts. Everyone has to pay their dues ie. take a beating as Henry Hill once put it. Man up, and deal with it until you get the gear. It does not take long.

I had to wear recruit mk-1 which was more poor in stats than what you get now and I had to pay 300k credits for it. Then I had to grind a week's worth of comms to get my battlemaster gear. Then I had to grind literally a couple months almost to get my War Hero Gear. Then many many more months to BIS the gear. Others before I started playing had to grind battlemaster pvp bags to get gear. All random mind you. So, Seriously quit your complaining. You have it easy now.

Play the damn game.

I really hate threads like these. Most people who propose ideas in them either don't think them through or are just mad at something that happened earlier in the day. Recruit-geared players especially need to take a chill pill, play for 7 days, get some gear, GET BETTER, and stop posting these threads.

BUT then there is this comment that I quoted here.

This is actually an excellent idea, one that the game should implement to some extent or another.

I can understand that there might be some reasons why you would not want ALL WH/EWH gear to be automatically given to a new character. But some of those pieces should absolutely be inherited through the Legacy system. This would give strong incentive for players to reroll new 50s, and would make the lvl 50 PvP scene more dynamic and diverse.

Great idea DrewFromPhilly!

I'm doing the same thing for my Sorc (Got a 50 sage pimped out). The sorc will get my left over WH mods, armorings, etc from my Min/maxing all in a set of legacy gear. It won't be perfect by any means, but it'll be better than recruit.

umm.... it IS in the game already. just buy some orange legacy gear from the legacy vendors on the capital planets, have a higher geared 50 (that's been collecting comms for months with nothing to do with them) purchase your alts gear, rip the mods out of WH or whatever and put them into the legacy gear and mail them to your alt. it's been in for a while now, since like 1.2 or something.

anyways, OP, please don't complain that the free recruit gear mk2 that you get isn't enough. seriously we had to farm champion bags (which may or may not drop the piece you need, i opened 25 bags and got 2 pieces of gear) just for gear that was basically recruit mk1 with set bonuses. then it gets given to new 50's while i'm farming comms for BM (which i was HAPPY about because it was still way easier than it had been), about the time i start collecting WH recruit mk2 comes out, basically bringing every new 50 up to my gear level (almost) and just about the time i've finished WH they replace the BM i had been using with WH making it that much easier for you to close the "gear gap". i fully expect to recruit mk3 to come out as soon as i finish getting EWH (which would naturally be the same stats as WH without the set bonus)

so, it a nutshell, stop complaining about not getting enough free gear that's better than what the rest of us have had to put A LOT of time and effort in to get. please, take step back and just play the game, get some comms and earn your gear the old fashioned way.

Not even close to the same thing as that guy was suggesting. Or rather, not close to my interpretation if it; he didn't say much beyond a single sentence.

Under his system (at least, as I guess it would be implemented) just by virtue of getting a full set of WH or EWH (plus maybe some Legacy perk), you would get your new 50 toon mailed a fresh set of gear, or a piece of gear. The details would have to be worked out. The point is to minimize the gearing hassle as much as possible just by sending your toons the whole set. You earned it on one character, you might as well just get it on another.

there is no gear gap if you actually participate in PvP.....
