I can only agree, that our tier 3 gear is horrible stat wise.

Just been looking up what I would gain/lose, going from 5 piece columi to 5 piece rakata.
I got the following numbers:

Total:

Armor: +76
Endurance: +34
Cunning: +2
Accuracy rating: +111
Power: -18
Crit Rating: +86
Surge Rating: -96

This dosent really seem like any upgrade to me.
I already have over 100% accuracy rating, so why gain another 111?
Only +2 cunning?
Losing power and surge rating? Whats the point of the crit rating then?

The rakata set dont make any sense at all.
3 pieces take away your power but gives you crit rating.
2 pieces take away your crit rating and surge rating, but gives you power instead.


Time to hire some brains BW?

The base armor (the part you can't take out) and the mods are the only things worthwhile on the rakata. Like we have already discussed, you have to take out the garbage 58 enhancements, that is where all the useless accuracy is, and replace with 56 enhancements from OTHER classes gear to get upgrades for crit and surge. When that is done, the rakata pieces are the best, its just alot of dumb work to do it.
