elif Player[Total_expertise ] > 2018 then
     Player[Total_expertise ] = 2018
else 
   leave the bloody player expertise and other stas alone
this way people with no expertise get a minimum of 1800 in BG and people who have a little are nudged a bit, and then even more and more until they reach the 2018 cap.

if people have more than 2018 they get kept back in line at 2018.

Problem solved pvp is fair, itemization is safe. this bolster would give the following results
Out of BG expertise : in BG expertise
0 : 1800
300 : 1801
600 : 1805
900 : 1819
1200 : 1846
1500 : 1889
1800 : 1954
2100 : 2018
2400 : 2018
etc...
I have no idea what you are saying here but if its true and would fix the bolster I'd think that Bioware should hire you !!

Would that imply that if you are wearing the top pve equipment with 0 bolster you would get boosted to 1800? Thanks but no thanks.

concur, but yeah.


bolster at endgame is a stupid idea. it has proven to be more trouble than it is worth imo. just mail people a free set of Recruit Mk3 gear when they hit level 55, and be done with it.

You need to add a condition to your original code:

if Player[Avg_ModLevelNoExpertise] >= 66 then
Player[Total_Expertise] = 1338 ////which is what it's supposed to be wearing Arkanian or higher////

I am working with those guys on getting some math around it all to hopefully clear some things up.

I won't have any new information today, I just wanted you folks to be aware that I am actively watching the thread and working with the Combat/PvP folks on getting answers to some of your questions.

Thanks!
