    Well all your gear gets bolstered so the 50 pvp gear wouldn't help you anywhere outside of open world pvp.If you're going to play by only doing warfronts you should just wear lvl 1 gear with no stats, it's just as useful as the 50 pvp gear.

    If you have any of the level 50 raid gear+crystals use those. Even though the raid gear will get replaced when bolstered the crystal will still grant you the bonus.

    Use your pve gear when tagging a boss, just dont get flagged. Had my rebuke hit for 10k on one tick on a guy. Felt bad.

    Don't listen to that guy, he didn't understand you're not talking about level 60 and he is a fool if he thinks bolstering is a lie. Bolstering works as Trion said it would. Sub-60 you're going to have whatever gear you equip replaced with gear normalized for your bracket with the exception of a few things like crystals and trinkets. The crystal actually applies its bonus even if your set pieces get bolstered into something else.

    Once you reach 60 you will be bolstered with basic merc armor any time you enter a WF. Continue wearing 4 pieces of crystal set gear if you have it until you can afford a 60 crystal, while filling the rest of your slots with merc gear so you can enchant them. If you don't have a crystal set then just go for merc gear. Favor comes fast.

    I mean the PvE raid crystals, like the HK crystal or Blighted crystal. That's only a solution if he has the gear or at least the marks/ISS to buy them already though... if he doesn't then he shouldn't bother trying to get them and just go up with whatever gear he finds.

    Well atm the bow and weapons are a big upgrade then what i got, and even the armor, but more so weapons, the chest i have now gives me 25 hit, the pvp 50 done's have hit.

    By all means grab them then. As I said favor comes fast so even if you do replace them with PvE gear soon it won't be a big loss. Even my sub-60 chars have already bought their complete merc set and have it sitting in storage along with a bunch WF powerstones/whetstones, simply because they kept hitting the favor cap and I had to spend it on something or I'd keep getting that red "you are at max favor" screen warning anytime one of our enemies died.

    pve gear gets bolstered in warfronts and conquest. not in wpvp, this meens that your pve gear without valor is absolutely worthless in wpvp.

    It saddens me to see what Rift pvp has become. The laughing stock of the gaming world.

    Just get a few pieces. Anything that's an upgrade, get. It's hell cheap now favour wise.

    On my alt, I was disappointed to find that the top tier level 50 gear still gets replaced by the bolstering system. All I wanted was to be able to use runes! I guess it doesn't matter though since everyone's gear is normalized until 60.

    what is bolstering? and I already bought the bow and one dagger so far, not sure if it's just me but it was a upgrade for me then what I had, but when I was using the new bow and dagger I seemed to do less damage at the end of the wf.

    I can see what people are saying about it gets replaced, i was going to buy another dagger, but I got a mace from the box which is good as the dagger, expect for 24. more dps and 15 vengeance. It seems to me vengeance means nothing now?
