Seems as if it doesn't? As there are no expertise items I can think of that are pre-level 50, doesn't this just seem dumb?

It keeps things interesting. If gear had more of an impact, a level 49 would be untouchable for a level 10. Or at least more so than currently.

Also there ARE items with expertise below 50. I believe weapons, at the very least, have some expertise on them. Don't know what level, I think 38-42 or thereabouts and up. Not much, but they have some.

no, but the boost you get takes into account your stats vs your current level and then boost them to 50. for instance, a 20 lvl player with full 20 lvl pvp gear will have better stats that a 49 lvl player with lvl 45 gear.

not anywhere as much as the 50 bracket

the big difference maker is talents...a lvl 40 has many more abilities which is just as bad

There are a few weapons you can buy pre-50 with expertise. But really, it's not going to make much if any difference.

Just for the record, it isn't QQ at all. I do just fine with my 23 sniper. It just seems odd that I should have the same type of stats as a level 45 and be able to potentially kill them when they've worked harder (cough, in some cases) and longer than I have.
