Someone mentioned this in the General Discussion forums and I would like to bring this topic here for larger PvP feed back. As it stands now, both Endurance and the Main Stat on Hilts, are lower than that of Barrels. Unfortunately, I do not have screenshots to prove as I am not on my home computer, but I can prove some information.

EWH Hilt
Endurance +36
Willpower / strength +37
Expertise +50

EWH Barrel
Endurance +39
Aim / Cunning +39
Expertise +50

I'm just curious about the difference in stats. Was this intentional or were some mods forgotten? If I am incorrect about something please let me know.

Bump in support of this thread. Curious for an intelligent answer.

How are the stats on the other pieces of EWH gear? Are those stats from the hilt made up for on another piece or are the hilts and barrels the only pieces that are off balance like this?

If a Jedi/Sith gains those stat points back on another piece of gear then it's not an issue. If they don't however, then it should be looked into.

Link the rest of the mods on the weapon for each, might be selective. If the WH weapon for WP gives 100 END 100 WP 40 crit and 50 surge, and the Aim weapon gives the same overall stats, then I dont see an issue.

It's an issue if the rest of the mods have useless stats like accuracy. No way I'm slotting in hilt+mod for +3 main stat if I lose 50 crit and gain 50 accuracy.

Which was basically the disappointment I was confronted with when I saw the itemization on my Elite War Hero saber.
A classic sig that should not be lost:

If anyone can post the others so we can view them, that would be nice.

I'm bumping this because barrels still have higher stats than hilts of equal rating. I would have thought that after this patch that things would even out but apparently not.

Totally agree.

It's a bug and needs fixing asap.

They must be under-staffed. Stupid mistakes.
