Is there some sort of mistake? The Elite War Hero main and off-hand weapons (or generators) seem to have a net loss in stats when compared to their War Hero counterparts. Even looking at the mods and enhancements individually, the level 61 components (War Hero) have higher overall stats than the level 63 components (Elite War Hero).

If this is NOT a mistake, then what is the incentive to ever purchase the Elite War Hero gear?

I was wondering the same thing actually. I mean, really. The only reason I'm planning on buying the main hand is because the hilt would be a slight upgrade...

Yeah, the sith warrior weapons were also disappointing as none of them have any power on them; A very expensive hilt. indeed!
Something pretentious.

I have no idea what bioware does when they create gear. The new elite weapons are pointless. I know technically it might be a slight increase in PvP only but reducing the main stat and endurance is a general loss all around.

I would have had quite a significant loss if i 'upgraded' mine, in the end i just bought it and took the mod out to stick in something else.

If there were significant stat increase consider how big the gap between Recruit and Elite WH will be..
You dont want to be killed in 1 gcd, are you?

Since Recruit is almost like BM now, no, not much of a difference actually.
