I didn't recognize this at first but well, I just did.

If you look at the stats of the Elite-Warhero Hilts (63) for Jedis/Sages it has the following stats:
+37 Strength (or willpower)
+36 Endurance
+50 Expertise

Now compare it with the Barrels (63) for Soldier/Smuggler. It's like any other 63. PVP Armoring.
+39 Aim (Cunning)
+39 Endurance
+50 Expertise

Could this be intended? I kinda doubt that. Opinions?

Just out of curiosity, what kind of bonus does 2-3 points grant, and have you compared the total bonuses applied by the full gear set? Maybe an implant or an offhand somewhere provides the missing points.

As far as i know (I just compared smuggler implants/ear with jedi knights') it's perfectly even.

I remember a buff for elite warhero armorings/hilts/barrels somewhen around 1.5 and for me it seems like they simply forgot to adjust the hilts since they still got the "old" stats.

People in charge of itemization don't really have a clue what's going. Remember tanking Rakata stuff with surge...?

It's kinda awful that entire gear sets are useless and players are better off with getting themselves custom modifications in order to get the optimal results.
Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not?

http://www.swtor.com/r/FsJS44 - Accept my referral to express gratitude for my years-long fight for iconic Jedi attire in this "Star Wars" game. You'll get some goodies on top of it, too.

True ... this seems to be a different kind of "mistake" though.

that is because the hilt gives min and max damage pri or second.
