Crafted PvP Gear... Better than BM/WH?

Hearing that you can obtain superior PvP gear via crafting vs. purchasing BM and WH gear through vendors. Is this true?

To get really high end mods I'm pretty sure you need to extract them from BM/WH.

So the crafting is just for the shell, really. (and the augslot! )

No you would still need to purchase the BM or WH gear to pull the mods out to put in the crafted gear

You need WH to use crafted shells while keeping the set bonus though.

It can be a tiny bit better due to the augment slots you can now get on orange gear. Basically you then would have WH gear with every piece having an augment on top.

The difference isn't really big though.

No, the crafted gear is Orange and has no mods in it. You can however remove expertise mods from Light-sabers but that can be really expensive. I'm sure there will be more expertise mods that are found / release soon.

Well you can get about 80pts to you main stat and 80 on endurance or same figures on power/etc secondary so it no that bad

Implant augment 2x
Chest augment 1x
Boots augment 1x
Helmet augment 1x
Gloves augment 1x
Legs augment 1x

Each +28 of the primary stat, that is not what I`d call "a tiny bit better", IŽd call that a hell of a lot better.

But that is only my humble opinion.

So someone who takes the time/effort to craft every single piece, pull all the mods from WH and augment each +28 will have a 196 point stat bonus to their main stat? Pretty good but only available to armortech?
