Campaign Armoring Set Bonus?

I have read all of the info regarding the set bonuses changing and all that on this site and dulfy and anywhere else I could find, I am just so confused by how this is being handled. I bought the Campaign Armorings from the BH/Campaign vendor on fleet and placed them into Orange Moddable gear, giving these Orange pieces the Set Bonus.

Now with 2.0 and all the tionese/columi/rakata sets changing, will my orange armor still have the set bonus? This is the only question I have had and can't find an answer. Thanks all!!

To my knowledge, the set bonus should remain confined to the armoring mod, so yes, your orange gear should retain its bonus as long as you keep that Campaign armoring slotted in

I have read everything from 'the set bonus is tied to the Armoring now' to 'the set bonus is on the shell until you remove the Armoring, and once removed the bonus will transfer to the Armoring'.

The latter is what scared me, cuz if I needed to I would put in 61 or 63 armorings into my old rakata shells and just rip those out for the set bonus after 2.0. Really hope my gear doesn't change tho!!

It's my understanding that everything will remain the same as it is now except in the case of existing Tio/Columi/Rakata gear. Currently those gear sets get their set bonus features from the shell and not the armoring. If you move that armoring to an orange currently you don't get the set bonus.

The only change is that post 2.0 removing the armoring from a tionese/columi/rakata shell will transfer that set bonus to the armoring so that the lower level armoring act the same way as the Campaign & Dreadguard do now. All future armor pieces will carry the set bonus in the armorings instead of shells like Campaign and Dreadguard do now.

You should not have to worry about your campaign armorings in your orange gear. The only change will be that ppl currently wearing Tionese/Columi/Rakata gear will be able to move those mods to custom gear and retain their set bonuses, which is something they can't do currently.

To MY knowledge, set bonus will be available only on 55 level gear. BH/Campaign will not have it so it will not matter to you since you will have BH drops on HMFP...
First one that will have it will be Arkanian – Rating 162 dropped from level 55 operations.

Well there you go. 2 conflicting ideas of what the patch notes on PTS said. Well guess we just wait and see. I don't THINK they are removing the set bonus from campaign, but at this point it's a crap-shoot

From PTS notes, so this could change....

All set bonuses are now stored exclusively on Armoring mods instead of equipment shells. Players will now be able to transfer set bonuses shells between equipment shells by simply moving the Armoring mod. The rules are as follows:

Set bonuses can be extracted from a shell by removing the Armoring mod.

While Armoring mods are not applied to any items, they retain their extracted set bonus. The bonus is tied to the type of gear the mod was extracted from (Chest, Legs, Head, etc).

When Armoring mods with a set bonus are placed in another item of the same type (Chest, Legs, Head, etc), the set bonus will then be transferred from the mod to the piece of armor.

Modified gear with a set bonus applied will receive a notification when attempting to overwrite the Armoring mod with another Armoring mod with a set bonus. If confirmed, the new mod’s set bonus will overwrite the original set bonus.

Some Level 55 Set Bonuses have been updated from their Level 50 counterparts. All Level 55 Set Bonuses are now listed without their "Rakata" or "Battlemaster" prefix.

This still leaves my question a bit unanswered, I'm just keeping my fingers crossed. The Jedi Sage PVE set bonus is a MUST and I would hate to lose it while leveling.

Which really sucks since all of us have loads of commendations and not clear idea whether to get Campaign armoring and BH pieces(to have set bonus), or to get Hazmat implants/ears since price will be significantly higher...

Where did you get that information? That is completely ridiculous. All current level 50 will retain their bonuses, stats and everything, level 55 set will have new set bonuses. I played on PTS and I still had my Trooper in Columi gear with bonus.

I think I have read it on Dulfy.
And also there is absolutely no logic for level 50 to have set bonus, as its no longer end game gear. Equivalent would be to have set bonus on level 45 gear now, which really doesnt make any sense. In any case we will wait and see.
