Back in the old days...

- People were allowed to hit kids
- School was a priviledge
- You had to walk OVER 9000 miles to get to school
etc.

The amount of comms you get to save up pre-50 is fine.

BW just needs to change the valor cap (so it doesn't follow char level)
put a hard cap on Valor pre-50 (Then you can get rank 50 valor in the lowbies quite early)

When you hit valor 40, you get to buy (not equip, just buy) BM stuff.

Nobody cares about PvE. Don't even know why you thought that was a good comparison.

He would have loved it. Before WH was introduced it was easier to get the top gear back then.

War Hero
25,575 ranked warzone commendations, 600 warzone commendations
Ranked War Hero
A specific rating for each piece, and a total of 1890 ranked warzone commendations for all pieces

Are these full-set prices correct? No matter how much I PvP before level 50, I can't save up more than about a quarter of the commendations that I'd need to get a full set? It seems like, no matter how much I PvP before level 50, I'm going to be at a distinct disadvantage for quite some time once everyone else starts getting gear with more Expertise on it.
Prior to yesterday, the limits were 2k for regular warzone commendations and 3.5k for ranked.
When you hit 50, you will also get a turn-in mission from the PVP terminal that gives you a full set of Recruit Mk-2 gear, which apparently includes 2 Battlemaster relics. With the new limits, you could buy both the War Hero mainhand and offhands (2k each), and probably the Battlemaster boots, gloves and legs to get a 2-piece bonus. This still leaves 25 ranked and 1000 unranked commendations -- I would recommend you complete the 4-piece bonus by getting Battlemaster helmet next. (The War Hero relics are also awesome, and in many cases are better than the best PVE ones you can get).

(For some classes, it won't ever be worth getting the Battlemaster or War Hero chest, belt or bracer, because you can get better results by using the armoring, mod and enhancement from an offhand, and putting them into an orange chest/belt/bracer).

Finally, the "rated war hero" set is only orange shells, and don't add any stat advantage whatsoever -- they are not part of the gear progression.

So, while you cannot save up everything you need to be fully geared at 50 just in the process of levelling to 50, you can be an awful lot more competitive than many people that had to do this during 1.2 or 1.3.

Is this really right? I'm pretty sure that, while you can convert WZ comms to Ranked WZ comms at Valor 40, you can't actually BUY any of the level 50 gear till you actually hit Level 50.

(If that's changed yesterday, my currently-42 Vanguard is going to be ridiculously well geared even before she enters her first level 50 warzone).

Simple fix is to allow you to trade WH comms back for BM comms in a way that gives you what you paid for them. 3 BM comms per 1 WH. Right now; that is what it is to pay for WH comms, but you get just 1 to 1 if you trade it back in.

If you got 3 BM comms for 1 wh, you could get full BM at 50 I think.

I don't really think it's fair that 1-49 warzones are basically "fair", but then suddenly you get to level 50 warzones and you're suddenly just have to live with getting ***** for a while before you can finally get enough commendations to buy "equal" gear. If I PvP like crazy from 1-49, I should be able to just jump in at 50 and go to town.
