So as the title suggests. I coudl get the mainhand and the offhand war hero weapons seeing as I have 3500 ranked and 2000 normal comms. But would they be better spent getting the war hero mainhand only and a selection of battlemaster jewellery?

Thoughts appreciated!

1. next week you will be able to stack a bit more
2. it's said to get mainhand and earring, then while getting BM stuff from WZ comms, gathering RWZ from daily/weekly for offhand, and so on..

If you have 2000 warzone commendations as well (full cap on both, that is), here's what you would do to get the best results: Spend 2000 ranked commendations on the mainhand weapon. This leaves you with 1500 ranked commendations and 2000 regular ones. Now exchange 1500 regulars for 500 ranked and buy the offhand.

Yea I thought both weapons would be a good start then farm up BM which wouldn't take too long.

Intrigued about the comment about stacking up more next week though - the cap increasing is it sub 50? If so I'll hold out doing the daily missions just to stay in the 10-49 bracket a wee bit longer. Plus it's still not boring 3-4 shotting noobs :P

Yes, mainhand and offhand are the most important pieces because of the Tech Power and maximum Expertise gain.

Nice that they're increasing the cap - will make pre-50 WZs more useful.

I get a feeling that it'll be hard to max up to 4500 ranked comms between 40 and 50, especially if you have WZ exp legacy perk

You need Valor 40 not level 40. so should be possible. Imo to much trouble, I always got 50 with no pvp on it (with exception of pre 21 lvl where exp is huge bonus) and started as fresh recruit (since you get rwz comms much faster with daily and weekly quests)
