Purple MH pistol in my case gave me about 0.5% less expertise damage boost compared to the Conqueror. When I next go into a WZ I will properly check the values (I'm sure others will post values as well) but my first guess is that 23 actual damage boost is more than 0.5% less expertise damage boost) Looks like around a 2% gain in bonus damage from the crafted pistol for that 0.5% loss in Expertise Damage boost ...on my character.

not pvp related, but fyi don't send your current companion on missions. When you hop off your bike, it autocancels the mission/crafting in order to return him/her by your side (instead of leaving you alone).

I wonder if you can get around this by actually dismissing your active companion FIRST, then sending them on their mission/crafting assignment. That probably works.

From what i can tell, based on a quick test, we're actually losing some expertise by using PvE items now, as in non-55 items. My bonus damage was still higher and somewhat mitigated that loss though.

That approach is just inviting disaster, and its track record has proven just that.
Yep, been saying this since pts testing. They just need to set base values that everyone should be at at level 29, 54, and 55 to be competitive for each set of WZs for all stats and just automatically put everyone at those stats. Pvp gear is the only gear whos stats count towards any stat totals outside of the minimum amount. Once you get enough pvp gear to get one or more of the stats to rise higher then the minimum then that value takes over instead of the minimum.

So simplisitcally you join a WZ. If everyone was naked every single person would have the exact same stats across the board (obviously with main stats and secondary stats being change around according to class). If every single person had Underworld maxed gear they'd all still have the minimum stats across the board. Those who had pvp gear would have whatever values they added up to over the minimums.

Or am I just over simplifying this?

Bolster is such a fail... What was so bad about recruit gear anyways?
