We are flooding the world with orange gear because everyone is just crafting to get augments. This is clogging the game and hurting the market. Please patch the game so we can RE the orange gear to get back some mats.. that way we don't have 50 pages of orange non augmented stuff that no one wants. The worst of them all is War Hero and Battlemaster non augmented crafted gear.. seriously who will ever want that? The only reason anyone would make that is to get the augment slot since it has valor requirements.

Thank you

I've heard tossing any ilevel Armoring into an Orange piece of gear will allow you to RE it. I have not tested this myself or gotten any form of confirmation.

I've heard this but I haven't heard WHAT you get back from the RE? I'm assuming it's just RE'ing the mod and NOT the orange item. The devs specifically stated they don't want people to RE orange items so the above has to be a bug.

This is not true. They are refrying to RE'ing campaign gear. With 1.2 you are supposed to be able to take the mods out of the new campaign gear and RE it to get a schematic for an Orange shell. It's not working as intended, you have to add a low lvl armoring to it to RE. You can not RE any orange items.

I've tried this with normal orange gear and it wouldn't RE but don't know about the campaign gear.

I would be nice just to be able to get some raws back from the stuff that doesn't crit, my wife just hit 50 on her Assassin and picked out the outfit she wanted from my synthweaver (who up until then had been critting regularly) I have spent over the last few days about 200k just on gathering missions and got nothing but a bag full of orange gear with no Aug slot that sells for about 300 credits each...

To be honest, I don't care. I feel completely duped by Bioware. From what they promised in 1.2 to what they delivered is a yawning chasm littered with bugs and, what seems to be their favourite tool, the random number generator. Secret World Beta weekends start in May so I'm swinging the lead until then and then deleting the lot.
