Hey all,

Exactly as the thread said. I pre-ordered SWTOR late and haven't caught up on all the game mechanics yet.

I saw bolstering mentioned in another thread, and I'd really like to know how it works!

I googled STWOR Bolster/Bolstering but all the links were to the old forum and dead

From what I've gathered it seems like it's going to make PvP a MUCH more fun experience if you can jump in at any level and be on equal terms with people!

Cheers

everyone is saying low levels will be boosted to the highest lvl person in the warzone but that is far from the case EVERYONE gets a boost to damage hp and everything everyone have around 11-12k hp and hit like a truck

Everyone get boosted to Level 50 BASE stats... Same goes for your abilities they all scale to level 50 base damage

Think of it as being level 50 in crap gear and haven't bothered spending talents nor training skills. xD

What are the warzone level sets? I gather it's like 0-20 but I don't know what the others are?

Is this the case if you're in a lower level warzone too?

Bolster system works as following.

It boosts your stats up to 80% of a L50 increasing your dmg output / healing output ect. So yes everyone has about 12k life and hits like a truck.

Ah okay!

Thanks for all the info guys! The class I'm thinking of playing first supposedly (according to the guide I read) has most of it's skills in place by level 20, so I guess that's when I'll probably hit the warzones

(Thinking of playing a Sith Inquisitor: Assassin advanced role, just because the storyline at the beginning had me cackling evilly... *looks shifty, wondering if he's given away his dark-side tendencies*)
