Mixing PVP and PVE?! two set bonuses?!

Can you put the armoring from the PVP sets into the shells of the PVE armor and get both bonuses? Has anyone tried. The force mystic set of 4 armors could give the 15% alacrity and the sets of PVP could give more bonsuses. Has anyone physically done this to see?

You could take the cheaper tionese and battlemaster stuff and try. I'm working on it atm but I'm low on resources. 8)

It is impossible to have more than 2 set bonusses.

WH armoring in an PVE shell gives u the PVP bonus (campaign mod in BM shell is PVE)

But it is possible to do a BM armoring and WH mod and enhancement in a PVE shell to get PVE bonus(es).

Hope this helps

Has anyone actually tried it to find out? And looked to see if it worked beyond any display in the armor? Maybe it works without saying it does.

NO. You will have only one bonus.
WH (61 level) PvP Armor mods will override the gearset bonus.
With any other armor mods the set will retain gearset bonus.

That is nice for PvE. You can have Rakata/Columi gear piece, insert there the Campaign, BH mods and have the Rakata set bonus.

For PvP, if you want to use PvE set bonus and not sacrifice the Expertise, you should use only BM armor mods that have slightly lower stats than WH ones and what more important - have less Armor Rating.

There is no armor rating native to customizable parts? all the stats are in the armorings/mods? And they adjust as you switch parts?

The armorings with attached set bonuses override the set bonuses attached to shells. For example, if you put war hero armorings into rakata shells, you will get the war hero set bonuses, not the rakata set bonuses.

To the original posters question though you could have set bonuses from both I would think but it could only be the 2-piece bonus for each one (i.e. War Hero Head/Legs and Rakata Chest/Boots).

That has to be possible I would think.

I keep hoping they change it. I'm still waiting to check it out to see. And then keep an experimental set with just armoring to test every so often. You never know they may sneak it in someday and nobody notices. 8p

What do you mean about the 15% alacrity? Where does that come from - do you mean the alac bonus from the armour's enhancement module?
