So I was looking at the Elite War Hero Stalker's Generator (shadow) vs the Regular War Hero Stalker's Generator and I noticed this.

The armoring (63) has these stats (Elite War Hero)
34 Endurance
34 Willpower
48 Expertise Rating

The armoring (61) has these stats (War Hero)
34 Endurance
36 Willpower
50 Expertise Rating


umm.....

What the?

Is it a bug or something? Whats going on here?

I have never looked real closely at the pieces inside the gear but now I wonder if I should start looking.

I love the people who say they don't take the game too seriously but post on the forum from sunup to sundown.

I would definitely look every time. Sometimes it will be obvious like this and sometimes the secondary attributes will be more essential to you rather than the +1 gain to main stat (i.e. I'd rather have power/surge than crit/alacrity and only give up 1 WP to keep that mod).

I noticed this on the Warrior EWH stuff. Perhaps there is an armor difference.

Extra armor would indicate the one with lower stats might be superior?

That makes sense, but when it's in the generator it doesn't actually give you any extra armor. At any rate, I replaced the armoring with a Force Wielder 27 (would prefer a Resolve 27, but I haven't seen any crafters with them yet)

Doesn't make sense, no, but the force power is higher on the EWH one It comes out slightly ahead in output. Take the armoring out your WH one before you trade it in. Buy EWH. Then put WH armoring in...

It's a bug. If you look at the EWH armorings on other pieces of gear on askmrobot, they have more stats than WH armorings.

But yeah, its still better to use the EWH armorings in the offhand for the bonus power.

yep. mainstat power isn't displayed on the hover over, but it's always an upgrade attached to the armor just like max dmg is always attached to the barrel/hilt. so that's always an upgrade with ever tier. the other mods can be gauged situationally. I think someone opened this very topic a few weeks ago dealing with the main hand/weapons.

Another thing to note regarding Elite offhands in case you didn't know...

The regular war hero offhand has a generic armoring. The elite war hero (at least for bounty hunters) is bound to offhand so you cannot use it for belt or bracers.

I found this out because I checked the regular one after I bought it. When I bought the elite, I didnt check and just assumed. /facepalm Can't get my item back because I altered it by removing the armoring.

What is the bug?

The armoring is worse in 2 out of 3 stats on the elite. And that's true for several classes (i've only looked at a few but they all were the same way.) If you mean the bug is that they have the wrong stats, I havent seen that confirmed by a dev anywhere, just the usual deafening silence.

Yes, I know the all of the offhand armoring has lower stats. What I was referring to is other slots have EWH armorings with higher stats.

For all of the previous tiers, the armoring stats on the offhand and the other slots have identical stats. That is why I believe it is a bug.
