Is it just me, or are these pieces a downgrade from regular War Hero? Especially the implants. I am losing a ton of power and a significant amount of cunning for a small amount of endurance and more crit/surge. When it comes to raw numbers, I am actually taking a reduction with the implants. Has anyone else noticed this? Am I missing something in the grand design or should I just keep my original War Hero pieces?

Yes.

The stats are simply LOWER, making the upgrade from WH to EWH on ALL THE REST TOGETHER useless.
Therefore I decided simply to not buy EWH implants/earpiece and just keep the WH ones

I posted about this the moment they came out, but people said i was wrong. They made me lol

This is true for most classes' implants.

I undertand that they want to lessen the gear gap, but at the very least give us +1 to each stat, not negative for every stat...

Zero logic was used in their creation.

From what I have read, and cannot substantiate with links, originally they had planned on EWH having a small expertise boost on every piece of gear. The change to a flat expertise tier between EWH and WH was last minute.

Thanks for the input. I decided to stick with my WH earpiece and implants. I was thinking that maybe the earpiece and implants were designed to enhance the rest of the EWH set, even though they didn't appear to do so. But I honestly don't think it was that well thought out. I think they just suck.
