There's another thread on this but I thought the title needed to be more accurate. People need to know that your opponents may be doing this, at least until they (hopefully) nerf it. I don't even think this is really a bug, and I definitely don't think it is an exploit (obviously, or I wouldn't be posting about it.) I think this is the current intended behavior and it is simply silly and a bit OP.

With the current state of bolster, the DvL XP suit bolsters to insane levels. For leveling toons, this makes sense since the the sole purpose of this thing it to speed up leveling. At max level, that becomes a bit OP, though.

Here's a comparison. I went with a DPS spec to avoid overly boosting HP. Vengeance Jugg in a mix of 230/234 for most slots with 240 saber hilt and armoring on the focus, at the bolsterizer:

Mastery: 6066
Endurance: 7367
Power: 3480
Crit: 1845
Damage (Pri): 3397-4039
Damage (Bonus): 2114.2
Crit chance: 42.27%
Crit mult: 71.18%
Health: 113515
Armor: 7798
Damage Reduction: 35.70%

After swapping in 5 of the XP suit pieces (all but boots and gloves) with only green 210 mods:

Mastery: 6222
Endurance: 7960
Power: 3973
Crit: 1811
Damage (Pri): 3549-4191
Damage (Bonus): 2266.2
Crit chance: 42.25%
Crit Percent: 70.98%
Health: 120464
Armor: 7798
Damage Reduction: 35.70

Yeah maybe this weekend I'll try that for the lulz (probably busy until then). And yeah obviously no set bonus this way. Still, damn.

I always thought Bolster was weird with this suit on in lowbies but this is simply ridiculous.

It almost feels like BW is trolling with this one.

It's pretty clear they patch stuff in without checking and cross checking everything before it goes live.

I understand the scope of things is huge regarding a change to bolster and the gearing system because of all the gears and pieces that are in the game, but let's be honest here. They are their own worst enemies.

They patch in such huge sweeping changes it's no wonder so much is out of whack when it goes live.

Couple that with the fact often times the huge changes are not wanted or enjoyed by the masses, it just makes these giant sweeping patches even more disappointing and frustrating.

I respect the devs for the type of work they are capable of doing. I do not like the changes they are adding to this game though.

It just seems like a blind man is steering this ship. He is totally ignoring all the weathercasts that are informing him that unless he turns the ship around, he is doomed because he is heading straight into a gigantic tsunami.

I should have time to try popping in some higher level stuff later today. I've heard rumors of 135k HP (which is what my DPS Jugg was bolstering to in 5.0 when bolster was 250).

This thing is so wrong.

Swapping in 240 mods (Lethal Mod); enhancements are still 210 green Adept, augs are 208 power, and remember this is just 5 of the 7 pieces:

Bolsterizered Vengeance

Mastery: 6527
Endurance: 8207
Power: 4228
Crit: 1811
Damage (Pri): 3674-4316
Damage (Bonus): 2391.7
Crit chance: 42.59%
Crit Percent: 70.98%
Health: 123454
Armor: 7798
Damage Reduction: 35.70

Bolsterizered Immortal

Mastery: 6463
Endurance: 8561
Power: 3639
Crit: 1509
Damage (Pri): 3519-4161
Damage (Bonus): 2236
Crit chance: 40.51%
Crit Percent: 68.97%
Health: 127743
Armor: 13647
Damage Reduction: 49.67

For comparison, from the OP, this is my normally geared Vengeance Jugg in a mix of 230/234 for most slots with 240 saber hilt and armoring on the focus, bolstered to 232 at the bolsterizer:

Mastery: 6066
Endurance: 7367
Power: 3480
Crit: 1845
Damage (Pri): 3397-4039
Damage (Bonus): 2114.2
Crit chance: 42.27%
Crit mult: 71.18%
Health: 113515
Armor: 7798
Damage Reduction: 35.70%

Well, that's enough of this thing. I could easily see people topping 150k HP with endurance mods, augs and enhancements.
