Edit: Yes, the new tier (Elite War Hero) is now on the PTS.

Thanks as always Dulfy!

The full EWH set is supposed to be released with 1.6. Anyone know if it's on the PTS already? If so, what are the new costs of BM, WH, and EWH?

How about just stopping releasing new PvP gear so that the gear gap can actually close for once?

Ooo interesting...how do you get BM? Credits perhaps?

If so...gear gap looks like it's closing in and QQers will have to find another reason why they are bad.

So here's the thing they swapped Battlemaster with War Hero. EWH is the new WH.
If theres one thing SWTOR taught me about PvP is don't hope don't ever hope just start building up your tolerance level.

Thanks! The price reduction is par for the course, but I wasn't sure if they were going to make it so cheap or use a half-step like the current WH weapons.

It would be nice if you could post a few screenshots!

Lastly, did BW change the requirement to turn in the previous tier of the same name to get a EWH piece? E.x EWH Force-Mystics requires WH Force-Mystics.

You said cost. As in the WH gear will be cheaper (reduced ranked comms cost), it takes regular comms now, or both?
