Read the Q&A people!

Bobonar: Will we be able to take the modifications out of our endgame pvp-sets and put them into a set that we like better (design-wise) and keep the bonuses?

Emmanuel Lusinchi: Yes, the set bonus will be carried by Armoring mods that work just like regular mods except that they only fit into specific types of items, such as chest items or boots items. So, for example, the set bonus from a chest piece can be moved to another chest piece, and the set bonus from a helmet can be moved to another helmet.
The point is to actually locate an issue not just vent your frustrations, no one wants your frustrations, they dont help in the slightest.

Finally I can stop looking like one of those hundreds of same-looking troopers in pvp gear. Simple white pants from like lvl 15 or so are still the best, especially on "dat *****"

i want a whole lot of sets in game.

i don't mean sets i mean designs from drops as i run round and i look excatly the same as the next random person of my class.

i know they wanted you to look like your class but would a little variety help, how many inquisitors i've seem opf various levels with the same designed cloaks, belts, helms..

same with jedi's yes some has some armor on it but ... they are all clones.. same looking from one to the next, why not have diffrent color robes at least.

nmot every inquisitor wants to look black/red while leveling i bleedin' well don't

If so, what about the gear's set bonuses? Are there plans to put the set bonuses on the mods instead of the armor pieces themselves so we can port the bonuses over to orange gear?

If not, I'm not sure how viable orange gear will be for end game even with removable mods from end game gear.
i can't talk for all classes but for some of them the set boni are absurdly useless. the pve set ones are totally a waste for my sage and the 2 items set bonus of the pvp one is just a nice gimmick. i would prefer looking good.

1. why should it be more pve than pvp? considering that the pvp forums is more active and you find faster people for pvp-ing than for a 4 man fp i doubt most people agree with you

2. you ALWAYS need to blance first for pvp, no matter if the game is firstly pve intended or not! ther eason is simple: you can easily fix any pve balance issues caused by pvp changes in the Enviroment (the E in pvE). but you cannot do this for pvp!

never ever take pve into account when considering pvp changes. you can fix any issues pve related elsewhere but you can't fix pvp changes elswhere but on the classes and their dynamics!

That goes both ways, and PvE can be fun without escalating gear to kingdom come (even more so, since it keeps "lower-end" content challenging).

What about set bonuses? I worked really hard to get my pve sets and can't stand the appearance of the armor. Are you attaching the setbonuses to the armoring? Something like Columi warleader gloves on the gloves armoring or tionese warleader greaves on the leggings armoring.

If customization doesn't include porting over sets, then I'm still kinda screwed...

edit: Oh I see, good... good...
