Does Elite War Hero make much of a difference?

I'm full War Hero right now, but it doesn't look like the stats for Elite are that much more impressive. The jump from Recruit to War Hero was noticable, but I'm wondering if it's even worth picking up the Elite War Hero or to keep augmenting my current set.

Well everytime you update a piece is more stats than most datacrons gives you.

It's not much but optimization is the way to go if you want to perform at the best.

Upgrade stuff like relics first. But it's not really worth it if you're already min/max WH gear.

the armor piece from ELW is a boost, so you could yank those out of the ELW gear as i've been doing, not much of an increase, but every bit helps

Looks like I'm just going to continue augmenting my War Hero and pull out a few mods from some EWH and allocate those.

Having to RE min/max since of course the stats are completely jacked sounds like more trouble than it's worth. Especially considering I've used mods and enhancements from several different classes. Like most I'll do it as it comes along but it's definitely NOT a priority.

So far I've only bought a few pieces and have used one item modification from each. Simply just to keep from jacking up my stats.

Sure... a piece might have +1 crit vs the war hero piece.... but I already switched out the crit mod like 6 months ago for MOAR POWAH!!!!

Just as an example of why it shouldn't be a priority.... Most of the pieces will hurt my stats more than help them at this point until I gather more pieces.

Relics and hilt. The rest isnt really worth it. Relay only gives you +1

I've bought some of the armor too though since I didnt have anything els to spend my comms on.
