Place all your PvP mods into a Social Dancer outfit and the set bonuses will be there.
You can then Pvp in whatever outfit you want and not restricted to BM/Warhero whatever armor.

Everyone looks the same then if PvP people only wear PvP armor.
How boring is that?
If your PvP armor looks like crap, u still have to wear it.

Again, let the player choose what they want to wear, dont restrict people to anything.
I agree with you that the set bonuses should transfer into any piece of orange armor, but I guess they haven't figured out a decent way to do that yet.

This defeats the purpose of crafted gear.
If people are already valor 70, they probably would already have a full set of BM gear.
Why would they want to buy a custom set, except for the Augment slot?

The valor requirements limit it to an extremely small set of people.
How many people have the Valor requirements?
No? great thread...

well i understand from a pvp'er stand point that, hey! i pvp my way up those ranks so i kinda want to look a little unique (well to some extent). at the same time though, as a marauder, i want those bm gear cuz 1) they look awesome, 2) most of the marauder gear are skirts. so hell yes i would like to roll on the marauder bm gear. my take is that hopefully with each new tier gear coming, the old ones will drop the valor rank. so now it requires valor rank 60 & 70. so when the new tier come out and require rank 80, the rank 60 requirement will be removed. kinda like what wow did with their gladiator gear.

Being able to purchase and craft BM and WH gear was a feeble stop-gap measure only useful between pubs 1.2 and 1.3, where craftable augmentation kits were introduced. The schematics now serve no real purpose and should, by all rights, be removed from the vendors. If you are even considering buying one of those schematic sets: don't. It's a waste of your money and more clutter to an already unruly and unmanageable crafting window.

Getting to VR 70 is too much time-consuming for someone that players on PvE servers and it's actually Ops active. I have 4 L50 BH or mostly BH characters and the highest VR I have it's 22.
The only reason I would possibly want PvP gear is for it's very good looks compared to the PvE one, but that doesn't justify wasting time doing PvP.
Such VR requirements should be on the PvP servers, not the PvE ones.

This is an old post but i agree with OP the valor requirements are stupid it would make sense if the crafted items came with expertise mods and enhancements but they dont they are just shells. They should just get rid of valor requirements or the least they could do is make the valor legacy wide because having to take all your toons to valor 70 to wear certain "SHELLS" is beyond what many pve players are willing to do.

On the contrary now that you can't get them anymore the valor requirement actually means something.

You can get the shells of them but you have to find someone to craft them for you or look on the gtn.
