The set bonuses will most likely be tied to the armoring.

The only thing I'm curious about is how the set bonus will work after that (i.e. will it be tied to the armour or the armoring mod - if it's tied to the model we will still see most people in end-game looking exactly the same as each other).
I think it'd make far more sense to make the set bonus tied to the number of armoring you have. I think only the 5 set piece slot can have armoring anyway? There's some orange gear I want to wear but that's not an option as long as set bonuses is tied to the base item.

Just becauce i could not see any graph on the link, here is mine:

Expertise graph

The marked intersections are at:
700; 12,62%
1400; 17,28%
2100; 18,99%
2800; 19,63%
3500; 19,86%

So as long as you are not at 700, its wise to go on with it.

The maximum amount of Expertise in the game right now is 703.

BoE armoring 25s (the ones in rakata gear) drop in operations and can be fitted into orange gear.

This doesn't give a set bonus but afaik they are all 2 and 4 pieces and you have 5 slots.

My Powertech uses an orange chest with an advanced reflex armoring 25 giving 140 armor rating and looks different to all the clones in full pvp gear.

ATM it's champ gloves & legs for 2 piece, orange chest and boots and columi helm (all non-visual & weapon / offhand slots are champ, giving almost 500 expertise, with all armour mods swapped out for champ / columi quality mod / enhancements with +crit & surge)

When I can replace all the champ gear with BM gear (59.45 valor currently) I'll have better stats but retain my unique look.

Considering changing the boots & helm for a 2 piece pve bonus but might not if the item mod changes are coming.

so anything above 703 Expertise is not worth it then?

was hoping to stack mine to 800+ and see is it was worth it since they nerfed surge...

well not really 800 more around 750 or so and justhave 200 surge or so...

Re-read what Astarica said. Only temporary buffs/adrenals can bring you over 703 at this point it looks like.
