    Default A question aout bolster

    For reference, I'm level 51. I currently have the Virtuous chest, feet, main hand, and neck.

    I've been looking at bolster when I join a warfront. The question I have is: What is the deciding factor on how much to bolster and what to bolster? I ask this because if you mouse over the bolster buff it lists the gear pieces that are effected. Sometimes my Virtuous pieces are affected and sometimes they are not.

    If you have something in that slot and it is not PvP gear (no valor = not pvp gear even if you bought it from a PvP vendor) then it is bolstered to the merc gear.

    Below that everyone is bolstered to the same level. Apparently some SL essences can break this in the 10-19 bracket.

    You must have something in every slot for it to be bolstered, this includes the 6 slot sigil. You need something in every slot.

    The slots that aren't bolstered at 60 are:
    1. The runes on your gear if you're wearing at least mercenary gear.
    2. The set bonuses of your gear if you are wearing a synergy crystal.
    3. The synergy crystal itself.
    4. Trinkets.
    5. Seals.
    6. Greater Essences do not work at all except some ones from level 50 (Hailstone Tideshard works last time I checked)
    7. Planar Attunement
    8. Consumables on PvP gear such as Whetstones.
