SWTOR: Masterwork Gear Changes in patch 5.10

Here is a new post by Eric Musco on how Masterwork gear will work with SWTOR Patch 5.10 Check it out: Masterwork Gear Changes in 5.10 | 11.20.2018, 01:50 PM   Hey folks, For those of you who are familiar with current Masterwork gearing plans from PTS, you will notice some changes. Otherwise, this may be an introduction to how all of this will work in 5.10. Throughout this post when I refer to Masterwork gear, I am referring to the new 252 and 258 item rating gear being introduced in 5.10. Based on our initial implementation there were a few key things we wanted to address: Getting Masterwork gear solely from PvP was more difficult than we would like.

SWTOR Bolster Plans for 5.10 and Beyond

Whenever we introduce new gear to the game, there is an inevitable conversation about what changes will be made to Bolster. As I mentioned in this thread, our original intention in 5.10 was to take Bolster and move it to 248. That thread along with the rest of the forums led to a lot of great feedback from all of you on how you feel about the state of Bolster, should it be higher, or lower, etc. That brought us to sit down and really look at what we want from Bolster now and going forward and so we are going to make an additional change. Let’s talk about why we originally landed on 248, where we are going next, and why.
