Another thing... is valor used for anything now? The vendor pvp gear doesn't seem to have any valor requirements..

Well they simply have made our previous work useless, some people say pvp gear dont work in open world pvp, which i think is not true, but anyway seems devs have clearly no idea what are doing so.. lets see what will happen, unsubs or whatever..

Interesting seeing alot of blind/incompetent people thinking they're good in pvp when the game itself caters towards people with BiS gear against those with no gear.

Not saying you're blind or incompetent personally but seriously.. if you thought the pvp was fair to begin with.......


............... lol.
If you think bolster did anything to make pvp fair.....then lol. BW could have re-done the stats on pvp gear to make them closer without bolster. BW set up the gear grind, set the stats on gear, then is going to invalidate all that gear, hahaha, then explain the reason for a gear grind if it doesnt produce better gear. BW is stupid.

So, how screwed up is bolster now?

Those people are idiots. It does work in open world.

Some folk have paid around 2million credits for a purple expertise crystal on GTN and I have personally spent quite a lot of warzone comms on baradium flux to craft quite a few purple expertise crystals for my alts. If I can at least exchange them for same colour of other stats I won't feel cheated out of quite a lot of wz comms.

Please take this seriously, those crafted crystals are not a trivial investment of resources however they were acquired.
I would also like to see this (I have a white crystal that I am going to have to pull now.)

Yeah, this is my concern also. Although its not like I threw out my partisan mods....I just preferred my old WH mods/enhancers, being they were statistically optimized for my style of play and marginally worse (Just a loss of endurance)

Apparently not. My first games with the new expertise-less gear seemed fine.

But I am confused about valor now. Apparently its not used for anythign at all anymore, if you don't count wearing the old crafted WH gear?

Valor has been meaningless since.... 1.2?
