If Exp(pieceofgear) < Exp(correspondingpartisanpiece)
return(correspondingpartisanpiece)

If Exp(pieceofgear) >= Exp(correspondingpartisanpiece)
return(pieceofgear)

Noone is in worse than Partisan, everyone can jump in to WZ and have a good time.
If you invest in earning PvP pieces, you can optimise, augment, upgrade to Conqueror, and gain a meaningful (but not WH-vs-recruit-type) advantage with time and effort.
No worries about raid hereos outgearing dedicated PvPers.
No concerns about PvPers needing to do PvE ops for PvP BiS.

Right, now that problem is solved.

Let's move on to establishing cross-server queues to allow a healthy Ranked PvP game!!

So your solution to bolster is to....add more bolster?

Over to you, Bill.

Did you even read the solution?

It's not 'more Bolster'; it isn't taking OP PvE gear and then adding Expertise to it (without reducing the non-Expertise stats) which the current version of Bolster does.

I read "no one is in worse than Partisan", that sounded a lot like more bolster to me.

And they are reducing the expertise on end-game PvE gear in less than five hours to make sure that the expertise it is given in combination with the superior PvE stats won't result in gear that is better than the actual PvP sets. I'm not saying that this fix will work....but that's what their intention is atleast.

Sounds a lot like Bolster to me

PvE gear + Partisan expertise.......why get Partisan gear at all then?

You don't understand what the thread starter is trying to say. This of it like this:

- If you don't have expertise on your gloves, then the stats on your gloves gets completely deleted, and replaced with the stats of default Partisan gloves

- if your gloves do have expertise on them, then use the stats for the gloves the character is wearing.


If they actually did this, instead of trying to enhance the stats of gear, it would fix the bolster issues.
