I'm still gearing up my marauder for pvp and tho I have the WH weapons..My question is should I save up and get the elite WH weapons first or continue putting together the rest of my war hero set?


Thanks for your input.

they are s*** if you want to min/max with power, you should farm the vindicator offhand generator, it has the mod and enchancment you need for all you gear basicly.

only reason to get ewh to begin with is the hilts, wich is a +1 str and +2 end upgrade form wh hilt. Your better off getting mods/ench first. Sad part is you have to farm 5725 wz comms for one piece if you dont have it from before, wich imo no mara should have (the wh generator that is).

See this link for the ewh sabers and the generator:

Weaponamster Mainhand http://i.imgur.com/3k0Y7.jpg
Weaponmaster Offhand http://i.imgur.com/mvaZ2.jpg

Keep in mind that these are from the PTS server, id double check this once servers go live today !

On another note, i had 3k rwz comms last nite, thinking that 1.4 would'nt hit before next week, so i bought the last remaining relics to "complete" my wh set (dont have mh/oh cuz of 1.4 yet). only to find out like 2 hours after i got the relics that 1.4 is coming today, gg me and my 600 rwz comms

oh and gearing up your toon, you should farm the BM vindicator set and pull out the armorings/mods/enchans and put them in other shells. that way you can buy the wh vindicator set wich gives you 10% dmg inc after force charge.

farm the gear from cheapest and up, meaing, get boots, gloves, legs, head. Forget chest, its a TINY upgrade from the BM chest for over 3k rwz comms, wich is better used on implants, ear, relics and such.

Wrong. The mod included with the Offhand is not our ideal mod.

Our ideal mod is:

Mod
War Hero Vindicator's Handgear (Gloves)
51 strength (++)
32 endurance (+)
39 power (++)
30 exp

This Mod still has more damage than the 65 Strength and 13 power Modification that comes with the Vindicator Offhand.

Currently none of the weapons being released in 1.4 has this mod. So we have to buy the Mainhand Saber + Offhand Saber, then replace the Enhancement with the one included with the Vindicator's Offhand to Min/Max. When they release the next tier of Armor we'll have to find the gear item that contains that mod.

I believe that BIS mod is in the new focus or generator for either forcemaster or another sorc type. Atleast it looked the same to me earlier. Its 2k straight RWZ coms too, so it saves you from having to get the BM to trade in for the gloves.

Ill check again tomorrow, but im sure someone else can confirm before me.

i can confirm that you dont need BM piece to get WH MH/OH, they are straight up 2k rwz comms.

To OP and mega; i know the mod isnt ideal, but its better then what ewh has installed. hes better off getting wh vindicator mh/oh for 2k rwz each, then farming 5k+ rwz comms for accuracy and crit ewh weps.

Either way, the ewh are just a tiny upgrade from wh, only reason to farm them is to replace all your mods/enchs in your gear to 63 type ones, and thats a looooong grind !

I was wrong about this mod, it doesnt have strength at all on it. I must have been drinking... Or something.

But yeah, Im just going to upgrade one saber to EWH vidicator, and then continue to min max the way we have been. Doesnt seem worth it too me for 20k RWZ coms just to get another 14 STR with farming the armor out of the ewh focus.
However the focus is a good way to upgrade your legacy belt and bracers fairly cheaply if you havent already. The armor on the EWH Focus can be put in any piece.
