    Default Level 50 Bolstering not working anymore after last update.

    On tuesday i was fine in WFs as a freshie 50, but on wed and today getting 1 shot as a cleric, the healing nerf didn't bother me,I just used a different soul, but no bolster makes me 1000% useless.

    I'm yet to be convinced that it ever worked. Send feedback in-game and cross your fingers for matched warfronts.

    Bolstering works up until Rank 12, or when your gear passes a certain power level. Once the quality of gear you have surpasses the first set of PVP gear, you won't gain any benefit.


    It looks as though between Tuesday and today you've replaced a few pieces of gear that put you just outside of the Bolstering power range (Void Lightning Footguards, Crescent of Night, Uncorrupted Ancient Life Wand among others).

    My r14 has never had more than 686 valor in any warfront she's entered.

    Laugh about it all you like, but, it won't be much fun when there's no one left to wtfpwn.

    My bad then, I thought It went by rank only.

    Yes it works, if I go to a WF barefoot and with a t2 staff i get my 1k valor back. And I can survive enough to contribute to the match, TY.

    Is it really going to keep you alive long enough to do anything though?

    How much do you pvp anyway?

    You can get to p14 in about a week of casual play, so I'd suggest that you don't play enough for anyone to miss you.

    What? Clearly you must think "casual" means 5+ hours a day. It's more than 240k Prestige to P12. At an optimistic gain of 120/min, that is 2000 minutes of play time. Or over 33 hours. Casual players do not do that in a week.

    The Prestige grind is soul crushing for most primary PvErs. That's why we see the same 50 or so people that make a difference in matches in a sea of scrubs. The scrubs wash out fast, and are just replaced with new ones where the cycle repeats. I'd love to know what the median Prestige rank is for people with at least 10 PA levels. Bet it is really low.

    Well Mr Know Nothing, I also have two r40's and one r34. How many do you have?

    Really not a good idea to assume stuff tbh.
