Battlemaster gear

Yes I'm absolutely sure I'm fighting one vs one and not getting ganged up.

Well I see you play mainly tanks and as a Mara you have stealth so it can be a deciding factor as a PT Pyro doesn't have really much going for defense and asides from some END traits I don't pick much endurance. I'm roughly at 27k if I'm not mistaken.

On a word of notice, have you tried using regular PVE gear instead of the WH one?

No I haven't, but that goes back to the augmenting discussion. I was basically broke on every toon from just doing pvp, I'm only now getting into a couple hours of pve to get a few pieces augmented a night. So I never really had any credits to spare for messing around with gear.

I do change barrels and hilts to the blue 66's though (the level 53 junk on the GTN). They have higher values then the WH/EWH. I do the armorings in the wrist, waist and gloves and leave the other 4 WH/EWH for the old set bonus.

I do get the blue level 53 ear and implants if they're cheap on the GTN though, they are superior in stats compared to the WH/EWH.

Go buy the cheapest level 10 greens you can find on the GTN. Bolster works wonders. trust me. That'll be enough to get you to level 55, at which point you can start replacing the lowbie greens with real gear.

Yes that's precisely what I'm saying. I get more effect at lvl 54 wearing lvl 10 greens than I get with WH gear.

I understand what you're saying, we pvp players are always broke but oh well.

I do advise you to try then and use any pve gear pre 55 instead of the WH set and you will notice the difference. Even better, make sure you dont have any expertise on you.

Well yeah of course. I guess I can't see the harm/difference losing 116 expertise to gain 103 power on one relic and 57/57 surge/crit on the other compared to level 50 green relics with 36 endurance and 20 power or W/E.

And yeah I heard that about the level 10 green stuff. Again, I guess it sounds so silly to me that I'm afraid to try it. Perhaps I'll do just that on my scrapper who is in all recruit gear, it couldn't possibly be any worse than showing up in that.

level 10 greens, dude. wouldn't cost you more than 10k for an entire set. if you don't have 10k to burn on something like that, you have WAY bigger problems than just low expertise.

I tried to play PVP with an alt that is still level50 with Battlemaster gear, but my health remains 25k only.
If expertise was removed from War Hero, why did it remain on the Battlemaster?

I do not have comms I could exchange PVE gear with and in a certain way it is absurd that I would need to buy green or blue items that are significantly worse than my BM (on the fleet), so that those might become better in WZ.
I worked for that BM set and I think it should be superior to all but WH below level55.
It is not right that one's efforts are undone like this.

Any hints how to solve this gear issue?
The devs response was that this gear was not in the game anymore for month pre expansion and they did not want to invest effort in fixing it. You can view that however you like. Currently, buy lvl 58 gear from Makeb vendors for planetary comms. Once you get to 55, buy conqueror gear.

Just make sure you do not judge the developers for it because Bioware fanatics are watching .

LOL man, no my version of 'broke' in game is like 50-60k credits. So yeah, like I said I'll give it a shot on the toon I have that *needs* to replace gear before joining a WZ rather than screwing around on one who I am comfortable with, gear wise. If I see remarkable stats then I'll consider changing the others.

I guess it's a mental thing with me. "How the hell can level 10 crap be better than level 50/53 stuff", that was my reservations with it.

Oh and BTW, I never once got called out on a gear check either, and I've been on teams where other teammates were called out. So I'd say it wasn't for a lack of checking me.
