Obviously this would be hard to track.. so it would be honor system.
You dont grind, you just copy a char from Live over with some ranked comms (4000+) multiple times, buy the gear, send it per legacy to your "main" char, equip and have fun. Delete the chars you dont need anymore. Rinse and Repeat until fully equipped and modded.

It's common that people simply sit on 4000 ranked comms on their Live chars? II haven't saved a comm since it became possible to re- for stabs.

Is this true? Can anyone confirm? I don't even know how to use that exploit as I never really cared for it.

EDIT: Apparently it is true if you play naked.

We could get past this if we all have a Gentleman's Agreement to queue in our gear from the live servers. This way the new bolster bug and the top gear from the PTS problems would be solved. But somehow I get the feeling people will not play along...

Or we could just play naked for the lolz, at that would be balanced too!

I was just about to suggest that, lol. Naked PvP with only main hand and off hand would probably be pretty fair to keep the gear balanced between teams

actually, it looks like using the bolster naked only gives you a very small and insignificant stat increase. In turn you lose your set bonus and, you know, you're naked. So this may not be such a big problem after all.

Of course they already farmed lvl 55 gear.... We're going to have to decide if we expect each team to farm a full set or if we expect the teams to only use their 50 gear.
