For example if I take the Battlemaster Elimnators chest mods and Stick them into the Vindicators BM crafted orange chest will the Vindicators have the eliminators set bonus?

Set bonuses are not transferring at the moment, tested with my BM supercommando chest. very frustrating since this has been on the wish list for forever. Right now if you have a 4 piece bonus you need I would recommend getting a chest piece crit crafted so you can match the look or your remaining gear. Also the jet black color scheme from the BH eliminator set DOES NOT work with the "unify colors" option

Only the new armor sets can transfer their set bonuses to orange gear. That means only WH, BH, and Campaign transfer over to Orange as they are post-1.2 armor sets where as everything else was pre-1.2. Not sure if Bioware is looking to fix this issue for at least the BM, Rakata, and/or Columi, but a lot of people at least want the BM gear set bonuses to transfer as there are specific orange BM gear that can be crafted.

I understand only the gear obatined in 1.2 will transfer the set bonus. Tehe question is will the set bomus to any orange crafted armor....ie BM elimnintors chest to say the BM vindicators chest will the vindicators have the elminator set bonus?

I guess ill just suck it up and spend the credits and try it myself. lol If not BW did not really give us they ability to custimize our toons w/o taking a set bonus penality...which is beyond me why they didnt

1. I had to actually get the pc of pvp armor with the mods in it. and spend a ton of creds in modding.
2. The pvp armor still has to be earned( BM or WH) to get the mods you want and still spend lots of credits to do it.
3. The most important reason. The community wants the ability to change appearance. Does not give an ingame advantage to allow it infact it would make the game look better. Instead of a bunch clones running around .

Well through an expensive test ...the answer is yes the set bounus will transfer to any orange crafted armor for those who wanted to know. As long as the Armoring mod has "(Armoring)" after the name of the mod.

Are you certain the set bonus goes over?
