On the PTS all level 50 gear kept the set bonus.

heh, they're not going to nerf your old gear that you worked hard to collect and then tell you to slog it out to the new level cap.

Campaign armoring bonuses will stay on the armoring mod*. It's up to you to decide whether to replace your mods with higher grade ones on your way to lvl 55 or whether you prefer to hang on to the set bonuses and be a little more squishy. I seem to recall reading on these forums somewhere that L61 mods should be viable to use through most of Makeb's leveling content.

When you hit 55 you'll want to start working on the new end game mods with set bonuses again.

*BUT: Once 2.0 hits, you won't be able to get L61 armoring with set bonuses on them anymore (at least not as far as I understand it). Here's the info from Dulfy: "Campaign/Black Hole Rating 146 with L61 mods. Black Hole pieces do not have set bonus. (Level 50 starter gear purchased with Classic Commendations)"

Any armoring that currently have set bonuses are keeping them. The big change is that if you have a Tionese, Columi, or Rakata set that currently has the set bonus on the shell it will be transferred to armoring IF you have armorings in the armoring slot. If the shell is empty in your storage or whatever then the set bonus just goes away.

SO...

If you want to use one of those sets then instead of buying campaign armorings which are level 61's, you can buy or have level 63's (which are the armoring 27's) crafted and put them into the Tionese, Columi, or Rakata. Those armorings currently DO NOT have set bonuses. But if you put them into that gear prior to 2.0, when the patch goes live it will transfer the set bonus from the shell to those 27's. Which is a pretty easy way to get dread guard level armoring with set bonuses.

On the PTS I lost all my set bonuses from purchased campaign armorings, might differ on live though.

Except that level 50 gear is end game gear for those who don't buy RotHC. Every MMO I have played that introduced a level increase did not remove any set bonuses on the prior end game gear.

There is absolutely no logic that only end game gear should have set bonuses.

To help set minds at ease Aries_cz is correct! The set bonus remains attached to the armoring mod so as long as you keep the Campaign armoring in your armor, you will receive the set bonus.

I have a question that a guildie posed and i really didnt know what to answer him

If you have a tionese set with any armoring mod on it, once 2.0 hits our servers, if you remove the armoring mod it will now carry the set bonus correct?

What's stopping people from putting a level 10 armoring mod on a tionese set and once 2.0 hits, give that armoring mod to a level 10 alt and pvp with a set bonus? is there a 50 or higher only restriction?
