You sure on those numbers? that would make 1000 expertiese about 40% boost, which is not.
for 100 exp is 2.44, 1000 is 19.83
edit: my numbers are % of dmg bonus*

There are Diminishing Returns on Expertise, meaning the higher it gets the less value you get for each point. Getting max expertise (around 1400 nowadays?) isn't encouraged anyway, you will do much better with around 1150-1200 expertise and the rest of the pieces switched out for Campaign/Dread Guard -equivalents.

//Also, as to the topic, have any of you ever heard of the Bolster -system that is present in the low-lvl warzones? Each piece of equipment and modification is boosted to match lv49. And Bioware isn't so stupid to overlook the lv10 +41 crystals as getting the bolster as well, meaning they do not scale. Conclusion: little to no advantage at all.

I'm always confused.. math doesnt suggest that dimishing returns (dmg + reduction) would be so hight that it would not be good to stack expertiese over power. but this is not topic for that, just had to add my 0.03€ since you mentioned magic 1200

"Bioware isn't so stupid to overlook" that leaks with sarcasm once my newbie hits anything where I can get her expertiese, I will check if bolster affect expertiese.. but yeah, I forgot bolster system could touch expertiese, still, even 10% dmg bonus to lvl 10-20 is still nothing compared to amount of skills L 40 has to offer.

bolster? I twink out my toons in all crafted purples, and I rofl stomp lowbies. I did this on multiple toons. bolster is nice, but there's clearly some scaling going on with gear, cuz better gear definitely has an impact. i'm curious how the crystals actually scale.

Of course better gear gives you an advantage, otherwise it would be just stupid. It only attunes your gear to 49. If you are wearing under-leveled gear and they are green, of course you're going to have less stats than someone wearing all purples of their level.

im pretty sure a L20 toon has the same abilities than a L40 toon, and the same damage per ability

I know on my level 30ish scrapper; missing both my opener I wont get until level 36 as well as a huge part of DPS I can't get until level 40 on a class that is dependent on an opener and to kill quickly; a power crystal is really what does me in. :smileyiserious:

I think they are walking a dangerous line.
As long as this type of item is not available in endgame PvP, it is not P2W.

LWZs are the most unbalanced PvP mess I've ever seen. They are just good as a leveling alternative to planetary questing which is horridly dull. Who cares what happens in them.
