You can't. If you think a player in random greens will have their bolster equal EWH you are fooling yourself. The Dev's have alreay stated that the Bolster equals you out to the Recruit set. This is why they are removing the Recruit set from the game. Players in EWH will still have a big advantage over players in lesser gear.

See the pertinent comment from the patch notes below:
Didn't they also mention that expertise should be close to 2k by bolster? Maybe im mistaken, but if so it quite beyond current recruit gear...

Even Chicken Little thinks the nerdrage is strong with this one.

Except that naked bolster is 2.0's recruit gear level. Those with PVP gear will have an advantage over nakeds.

It still doesn't really work right. I don't have any EWH, just regular WH but I get my best stats by mixing PVP and PVE gear and without using any relics. Using relics makes your stats lower.

TTk is going low in a controlled scnario (Healers that heal, Tanks that Tank and DPS that DPS)

That is a bug that will be resolved. Bolster system is not perfect, that is why it is being tested

If the players are stupid enough to not get recruit gear, then remove gear progression altogether. Why not just set everybody's stats to equal in performance?

Oh yeah, that would take the game away from actual PvP. MMO players need their cookie, because it sucks if you don't perform better after spending some time doing something. Learning is stupid!
