    Question About Battle Orders - Switching Items

    Hello. If I switch to dual hotos to BO and then switch back to my regular weapons. And my regular weapons have +50 life. Will that +50 Life be bo'd?

    Same with other item slots. If I wear dual bk-rings and bo. Then take them off and wear some life rings, will the life on the rings be bo'd?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I guess I'll have to rethink some of my item choices.

    Are you sure? I was under the impression the +50 would be BO'd. I guess it's not so hard to just test...

    It would if it was equipped. It won't be if you add it afterward.

    It will be affected by BO, regardless of when you equip it.

    Yup. I think that happens because it's a % increase.

    This is the reason why people use prebuff gear.

    Lots of varying opinions. I am hoping Milb is correct. Otherwise, I wasted a lot of time getting useless BO gear.

    I just tested it with an SC of Vita. Milb is correct.

    Let's say that in your regular gear you have 1k hp.

    If your BO gear gives your 100% increase in BO, you will have 1k hp in your regular gear. However, If you take, say 20life charm away from your regular gear, you will have 980/1960 hp respectively.

    This is bluntly assuming that BO would increase your life in this manner. (Which is not correct because life granted by vitality is not affected by Bo

    Meh, never worked when I tried. Then again, it's been a while and used charms rather than gear

    Maybe best not to give answers as facts if you aren't sure then, I went and tested it with a charm first even though I was pretty certain.

    Life granted by base vitality IS affected by BO. What is not affected is +vitality gained from items.

    Just in case there was any doubt the answer is most definitely yes in both cases.
