Orange Items - Looks and PvP

I am going to roll a Smuggler Scoundrel and I do not like the look of some pieces of endgame pvp gear as it is now..
I read here and there that you can have the stats of the PvP piece put on an orange item with a different look, so to customize your charachter to your taste.

My question is, can i basically get ALL the stats/base values and benefits of ANY PvP piece and put it in an equivalent orange piece? (example PvP BM Headgear -> My orange headpiece with BM PvP stats)

you can get the stats, yes. but as far as set bonuses go, no, i don't think so. the only exception i know of is campaign gear where the set bonuses are tied to the armoring piece. i dunno if they have the same thing for the high ranking pvp gear or not.

for the War Hero gear, the set bonus will transfer with the armoring mod to your custom orange gear.

Thanks for the answers, sounds awesome.

But now I am confused a bit more. Only when I will get to War Hero gear will i have also the set bonus?

And why not for BM gear? Will this be implemented at some point?

All modable PvP gear retains set bonuses. (I believe it is tied to the armoring)

Only campaign-level and beyond PVE and war hero and beyond PVP gear carry the set bonus in the armor (i.e. would transfer to your orange). Anything below and the bonus is tied to the shell itself. There are no plans to modify this in lower tier gear.

only gear available after patch 1.2 have the set bonus tied to the armoring:
- campaign & war hero (1.2)
-dreadguard (1.4)

It was probably too much work to redo all previous sets...

Or it would give to much freedom or not enouth.... BUT it's not as bad as you think. Sometimes you WANT it to work that way. My sniper,PT dps set and operative healer uses 2/4/2 of pvp Battlemaster for PVE since pve is worthless (arguable). (so on BM I put BH armoring and I dont loose set bonus).
So it aint all bad.
