So it seems there is some confusion around this stemming from issues on the PTR combined with some assumptions based on other problems about unintended boost restrictions.
In short though:
- The Gear Update shouldn’t remove your eligibility to unlock heritage armor
- Currently we have no evidence that the Gear Update does remove eligibility
So any characters that can’t unlock this likely already had eligibility removed by one of the other things mentioned here.
EDIT: Quick update to say we’re taking another look at this, just to make sure. Thanks all!
