It has come to my attention that many players seem not to be gearing right.

DO I NEED PVP GEAR?
Absolutely not! Bolster will provide all the stats you need! Start off with your pve gear like this scoundrel: http://i.imgur.com/Q7wcYaV.jpg

WHAT PRIMARY STATS SHOULD I STACK?
With the extremely low ttk current in pvp and underpowered healing, endurance, even for dps, is everything. Regardless of other stats on a piece of gear, you're going for max endurance. This lowbie's even figured it out at his tender level http://i.imgur.com/y1YhX3K.jpg

WHAT SECONDARY STATS SHOULD I STACK?
Critical rating and alacrity seem to be the most effective stats. I believe these are called quick savant enhancements or something. remember always that these mods must be extracted after buying partisan shells. Alacrity is especially useful for warriors and knights because it a) helps their resource generation, and b) helps their casts go faster.

WHAT AUGMENTS SHOULD I GET?
With the involvement of new augment tiers, it's all about money. Regardless of the type of augment, or even level, go for the cheapest. This 50 marauder knows what's up. Note the willpower affects his force moves http://i.imgur.com/LrmhvVs.jpg

WHICH AC SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Because each class has two very good ACs good in every department of gameplay with three viable trees, it's up to you. I suggest playing AC-less a few matches to see how you like to play your class. Be this guy http://i.imgur.com/OIt9B8i.jpg

I'm sorry but, may I ask why you're taking screenshots from another thread, and just posting'em on your own for no reason but an attempt to be funny?

I'm not fortunate enough to find gold min/maxers like the above in my games.
