Without Campaign armorings, you will have to resort to buying player made 63 armorings, which won't have a set bonus. And because after 2.0 armorings will provide set bonus and not the shell, you can't fix it with putting the crafted armoring in a set bonus shell.

So it's either under par stats, but set bonus, or sane stats and no set bonus.

This is really dumb, IMHO.
I read a thread in the PTS forum, some weeks ago, that any armoring put into tionese/columi/rakata shell would add the bonus set to said armoring . Someone even posted a pic with a green might armoring 2 having bonus set.

If that still works that way, you could have your crafted armoring 63 on tionese shell that would give the bonus set after tomorrow. Would be cool to know if this still works like that

Would be kind of hilarious to legacy smuggle a set of armoring 2s like that to your alt and have a set bonus at level 9.

haha, no kidding, boosting abilities you don't even have but at some point on the PTS that was possible.

I agree. I can somewhat understand not allowing others to save up for very high level gear, but I don't.. I'm currently questing on an alt who had 82/50 plan. comm's; however, the stuff he needs is one-two lvls above his own and can't get them><. If I turn in quests, atm there's some crap greens or comm's that I won't recieve. Therefore, I have to do something else to get to this level first, so I don't feel like I've wasted something in the game, before I can continue on questing

This is my opinion. I just think it makes things far more tedious than they need to be. We should all get what we earned.

The planerary cap needs to be raised indeed. Just completing one planet I got more than the limit, similar experiences with my other alts.

Infact, one of the reasons why I subscribed was the commendations limit (that used to be 20) for f2p. I don't want to be worried about this and be forced to spend them in nonwanted stuff while I'm playing.

Maybe there should be a legacy approach. So you get to add all the caps together of all your toons and have a shared pool. That would be nice.
Ultimately I am a much more reasonable person when people reply to what I actually wrote instead of what they decided I meant with it

On one hand they encourage you to level quickly with double xp weekends and xp buffs and then cap the classic comms....I want to know what genius made this decision?

I had a few Rakatta pieces in inventory and opened them to help gear my sage's healing companion. No warning and the weekly cap was full and I wasted a couple of 75 com boxes before I noticed I wasn't getting them added to my total to use later on. I for one don't want to raise all 10 alts immediately to level 55 because even new content gets old quick if it's done immediately over and over (I got my main to 55 in 10 hours and my next over 2 days not trying hard. ) Now I have been sitting in 55 hm/fp queues for hours with my all 63 Dreadguard BH and no luck so I am forced to guess what????....level another alt to 55.

I love the new xpac and appreciate all the work they did to create it but for heaven's sake, take the dang com cap away so I can at least gear up my companions in Camp gear to make them viable at 55!
