Ranked warzone clarification

have to agree with Turbo, IDK why they just cant copy the previous sets gear (providing it was a somewhat optimized set) and just have the same bonus's on each piece, and increase them every set. kinda tired of grinding out the equivelant to almost 4 sets of gear between my pve/pvp set to have my set right. My dream be making the pve set truly viable in warzones, and have the expertise + the lower stats on pvp gear ballance out the difference the two sets kinda how they did in WoW, people in T2 naxx gear used to faceroll in warzones until they added a expertise like stat to PVP gear, (but it did make all the pot farming for that raid worth while facerolling peeps in warzones)

I feel pretty much obligated at this point to respond.

63 armoring: http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/gear/361...%28armoring%29
61 armoring: http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/gear/361...%28armoring%29

63 mod: http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/gear/350...ptitude-mod-27
61 mod: http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/gear/350...ptitude-mod-26

63 enhancement: http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/gear/375...enhancement-27
61 enhancement: http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/gear/375...enhancement-26

Gains from 1 piece from 61 - 63:
+8 End
+4 WP
+2 Power
+1 Surge

For the sake of saving time, let's say one's gear was setup in such a way where the other four pieces were output in the same way.

8x5 = 40 End
4x5 = 20 WP
2x5 = 10 Power
1x5 = 5 Surge

This is only the 5 main set pieces, which is excluding the belt, bracers and off pieces which can be upgraded even further. As meaningless as it seems, think about it - you don't die in one hit nor do heals get someone up in 1 global. So the longer the battle goes on, the more these numbers matter. The Min/Maxed EWH set is a solid upgrade.

Remember how bad BM was when it first came out? The upgrades have always been 'small', but the multipliers in this game are large.

Totally agree. The idea that the differences in EW gear are too marginal and not worth getting is stupid. In PVP slight stat boosts are magnified. Just my opinion but I think the EW gear is totally worth getting.

I agree with what you said, and knew the numbers before I posted. The mods and enhancements aren't enough IMO for the time it takes to put in to get them that is all I am saying. We are arguing semantics m'lady! I disagree that it is 'solid'. If mods and enhancements got the same love the armoring did, I would call that solid.

I don't know about other classes/builds but merc/commando healing set stats are ****ed. Basically you have to use WH until you min/max EWH into usefulness. The majority of pieces replace surge,crit or power for alacrity which is useless, it makes you over heat. Some pieces have less and I think it's the ear piece or maybe implants that actually have LESS stats on them, ***?

Why can't bh's/trooper's get some love?

yeah. i've just been swapping out the armorings and some of the mods. most of the enh have alac on them.

what really drives me crazy about it, though, is that the side stats change from tier to tier. e.g., I bought like 6 pairs of wh combat tech gloves for the enh. (crit/surge, iirc). now ewh comes out, but the ewh glove enhancements have acc/pwr instead of more crit/surge. omg! omg! omg! all that grinding I did and all those extra wh combat tech gloves are now COMPLETELY worthless. and to add insult to injury, I have to re-grind all new wh gloves/boots in order to purchase the ewh pcs that have the upgraded enh that should have been on the gloves as they were in the first place.
