Swapped over to confirm that, then swapped back and confirmed that I was in fact under the accuracy cap by about 250 points. Interestingly, the 330 gear that I picked up on Mek-Sha doesn't seem to have this problem and my Accuracy was correct for what it was in that gear. It's only my original 306 gear that has this problem. Tried this on Ziost, Tatooine, and Mek-Sha as well, same result.
The weird thing to me is that it's the same number. Whether I'm on Tython or Mek-Sha, I go from exactly 2692 Accuracy (on the fleet or in a SH) to 2447. So while it does seem like my accuracy is being scaled down, it doesn't seem to be based on the planet I'm on. Is there a stat penalty for wearing pre-7.0 gear on level shifted planets? I know it's not coming from anything like augments or my stim, I've been playing around with the numbers to see and I'm just not getting the full amount of Accuracy from each piece of my gear. Removing my pants on this set, which have 431 Accuracy, should have dropped me to 2016, but they dropped me to 2059. So effectively, I'm only actually getting 388 of the Accuracy I should be getting from that piece.
The biggest question I have after looking through all of this: is this intentional? Are you intentionally penalizing older gear sets in level synced content? If so, why? If you say Accuracy isn't being scaled, it shouldn't be touched.
EDIT: Editing this to add, I checked on another character, and it's happening there as well. Was also able to notice that the amount per piece is the same. So it seems like I'm just having exactly 43 points deducted off the tertiary stats of any 306 gear I wear. Maybe it applies to Endurance/Mastery/Power/Crit too, but there's no solid way to test that since those stats are all intended to be scaled. You're telling us Accuracy and Alacrity shouldn't be, so why are they being lowered?
