Actually, that's all Bolster will ever do. That's the main problem with the mechanic. It's not an "objective" perfect system. It's a normative system, and as such, has its own built-in norms. Not only that, but the norms are not static. They will change with each new introduction of gear tiers. So LolbolsterPvP will always be a bolster chase.

I actually disagree with this. Lolbolster is doing exactly what it was intended to do, and that is to make PvP more accessible and easier for casual PvErs.

Not with all PvP gear. My BiS build clocks me in at 1250. Please point me to an all PvP gear build with 1400 bd. I would like to see it, regardless of class.

Was wondering when this one was going to finally see the light of day. Took longer than expected. I know of another bug/exploit that I haven't seen mentioned on the boards at all. So there's more...

Bolster is a good idea, just poorly implemented. The Devs will always be chasing bugs/exploits with it due to its normative design.

That's why Bolster should be REMOVED from Rated War Zones. I've been advocating this since Bolster beta, and I'll say it again. Take Bolster out of Rated PvP. Not only would it eliminate the potential for exploiting, but it would make the endgame PvP gear grind worth doing.

Why do you use commas, where you should use periods, when typing your numbers? There is no "u" in color!
