This subject has been posted a few times, but it isn't getting enough traction. Very few issues that aren't bugs are changed on the PTR, so I want to get this out early.

Remove the requirement to turn in the previous tier's gear piece for the newest tier.

An example of this requirement is purchasing a WH chest requiring a BM chest, and EWH weapon requiring a WH weapon.

The main problem is that the stats keep getting swapped each tier. If the *type* of stats remained constant, I wouldn't have any complaints.

Force-Mystic:
WH: surge + power
http://www.torhead.com/item/3XHdtfk/...ics-lightsaber
EWH: alacrity + power
http://www.torhead.com/item/1VMTExm/...ics-lightsaber

Force-Master:
WH: crit + alacrity
http://www.torhead.com/item/3jxdP3X/...ers-lightsaber
EWH: power + surge
http://www.torhead.com/item/8i4uji2/...ers-lightsaber

I had to completely re-buy all of the BM set on my Sage just to get the right stats on WH. Do not make me re-buy a complete set of WH just to get the right stats on EWH.

How is that going to help when I have the WH Force-Mystic's Lightsaber (power + surge) and want the EWH Force-Master's Lightsaber (power + surge)?

In order to get the mods I want... I have to buy the other WH saber just to exchange it.

Yes please remove this turn-in requirement. I have the same issue as mentioned and it sucks. I liked my WH power surge enhancement but the EWH power alacrity one is rubbish for a shadow.

This is the single most irritating aspect of gear in this game for both PvP and PvE. To be frank, I firmly believe that it is being done intentionally by whoever is doing their gear optimization as a means to keep everything as confusing and convoluted as possible. This is a no-brainer easy fix and there is NO excuse for it to still be this way almost a year after this game has released.

Get a clue, Bioware/EA. Changing stats on individual gear items every time you move to a new gear level is stupid and an unnecessary time waster for players. It isn't fun and it makes you look look either completely inept or completely masochistic.

im a go with that the ewh gear, (Armor) had its stuff swaped around to, and will even out and be normal again once there out, but there not yet.

Though I agree with removing gear turn in or atlest reducing the price of WH armor by 50% and EWH by 50%. as of now it just to much
