Bolster is pointless...
I hardly notice a difference from people coming in with pve gear to what it was like coming in with recruit
A set of PVP gear doesn't even take long at all to grind anyways, which is why I was confused as to why bolster was such a big deal when it came out

Now the majority of the pvp'ers are losing interest in this failed attempt to appeal to the pve'ers, ftp'ers, and people that want this game to be a first person shooter with this bolster experiment. Many subs are waiting to see if they bite the bullet and scrap lvl 55 bolster. I just hope they realize people will look elsewhere pretty soon if bolster isn't removed.

lol yeah, saw some guy in full 72s or close to it in pvp, had like 1500 expertise and 2000 max weapon damage, hardly a handicap due to bolster. He got top damage too.

That's cause pve gear is still BiS for pvp.

Funny that skill matters in PvP right now. At this very moment -- I've NEVER seen PvP as balanced as it is. Does that mean they should stop working on it? Absolutely not. But 99% of games I've been in recently have actually been 50/50 and difficult fights.

Pre-2.0 -- I knew within the first 5 minutes who would win. Because being hit by smash once shouldn't kill me.
LOL i dont know what game you have been playing but pvp is far from skill now. Someone who can come in with 55 blues will rape ANYONE with anykind of pvp gear. Because of bolster.

This is a huge problem. WHy is there even PVP gear if PVE gear is better in warzones..at this point pvp gear is good for open world pvp but in a PVE server....really? So stupid.

Bolster only serves to give people who havent leveled up or earned pvp gear an advantage.
