I noticed these restrictions were wrong/inappropriate. I don't think they were intended:
1. Disruptor Beam Array Mk II (T1 PvP reward). This item is restricted to Lieutenants. All other Mk II gear is unrestricted
2. Disruptor Beam Array Mk IV (T2 PvP reward). This item is restricted to Lieutenant Commander. All other Mk IV gear is restricted to Lieutenant
3. Antiproton turret Mk X (Mark of Honor reward). This item is restricted to escorts and BoPs. All other turrets are available to all classes.
Is there a plan to fix/change these? As a cruiser captain, I'd love some of those Antiproton turrets on my T5 bird.
