Is this Renown and Exalted Legacy gear "fact" true?

I saw someone in general chat say that the point of legacy gear is to make it easier for your alts to get Columi mods, according to what they typed since Legacy gear Binds to Legacy you can buy a Columi Weaponmaster's chest rip out the mods, put into the Renowned Marauder's chest and then mail it to a Mara alt.

Is this true?

Cause if it is I'm going to go buy a full set of legacy gear, and put in Columi mods, so I will have 2 characters that can actually be useful to my guild rather than just one.

Wouldn't it have to be at least Campaign to transfer the set bonus?
I'm sorry, master, there were COMPLICATIONS. Please don't deactivate me!

Yes it would, but sadly I'm not 1337 and haven't done HM EC yet. My guild is going to try and down the Nightmare Pilgrim next week - wish me luck on the Campaign boots!

I believe columi/rakata mods, armorings and enhancements are all BOP which wouldnt allow this.

That's the point... the legacy gear is Bind on Legacy, so you mod it up with BoP mods you'd normally be unable to trade, and you can then mail it to any alt. I geared my fresh 50 sage in full Rakata this way. May as well, if you're already letting the stuff rot.

so what happens if you transfer the gear to your alt and then decide to rip the mods out of the legacy gear and put them in a different piece of orange gear

Then they go into the other piece of orange gear, same as always.
