What exactly am I suppossed to be doing in WZ's with this trash Recruit armor? It is completely useless. I understand this game is all about progression and you need to earn the better gear, but seriously, at least allow Recruit armor to keep you alive for more than five seconds so we don't feel like we're dragging our team down all the time.

I returned to the game about 2 weeks ago, received the Recruit set aswell and went in for some action.
Yes, I agree your very squishy and die quickly. But on the other hand, you should try (I know you sometimes cant) to pick your battles. Dont rush in like Rambo, but take it easy and slow. You'll get there.

2 weeks of casually playing and I almost have a complete WH set + augments. You really just have to stick to it and get it over with and it will all get better.

(I still get my butt handed over to me, but hey, we all do )

So crafted War Hero gear with the War Hero mods DOES NOT equal War Hero when handing it in for Elite War Hero?

Nope... It is not worth the investment in credits to acquire the schematics.

And furthermore, when people see the recruit armor, they go right for you too. I swear I get target called because with 2 people on me, my assassin gets seemingly 3 shotted and can't break free of any of the stuns the put on me. It's terrible right now. I want to pvp, but it's impossible to break into it right now with the state of how powerful expertise seems to make you.

And you seriously think it's different in other MMOs? PvPing as a fresh max level toon can be much harder and more frustrating.

Just hit 50 with a new Guardian and while it's true that I'm very familiar with the game and the class, I'm doing just fine in Recruit gear.
It's mostly about what you should expect:
Wrecking people 1v1? No.
Making stuff happen on your own? No.
Acting as some sort of support? Yes.

I don't rush into zergs and I never initiate on my own - instead I use taunts and Guard from afar, pick off isolated targets and I actually use the chat for making calls and asking for help while defending.

It's not like you have to bear with Recruit gear for a month or so.

Question for those in the know:

I understand that they're capping the amount of certain kinds of commendations that you can receive per week. I am wondering whether this includes warzone commendations and, if so, will there be a limit on the rewards you can earn through pvp, or even on the amount of warzones you can play per week, even for subs? Thanks.

Im new to the game. So im wondering what the difference between PVP and PVE gear? ANd why is it a bad idea to go into a WZ with PVE gear on?
