I have both but haven't noticed any issues when it comes to not being able to unlock them.
The first part of this is accurate - it was an issue we found internally and have fixed prior to the pack coming out. Normally we don't note things we fix before they're put into the game (such as bugs found and fixed on the PTS before a Game Update) but occasionally they make it into the notes.

Korriban Lore Week | 03.17.2014, 01:36 PM
Hey everyone!

I haven't forgotten our Lore Facts of the day! This week will be about the history of Korriban!

After years of fighting among themselves, the Sith tribes on Korriban were united by Adas, who held power for centuries.

Absolutely free! The only thing that could cost you money is if you wanted to keep drinking after the drink tickets we give you.

I can totally understand why the maintenance window seems long based on the Patch Note contents. During maintenance periods, we also have changes beyond updating the game - hardware maintenance, website back-end changes, so on and so forth. This is why the maintenance seems long vs. the Patch Notes.

Ok TaitWatson - You've been johnny on the spot - how about this bug? | 03.17.2014, 09:23 AM
This is something the dev team is aware of, but I don't have any ETA on a fix. I'll keep everyone update if I hear more!

We're actually addressing this bug in Game Update 2.7 - Assassin's will no longer have to take Impose Weakness to pick up Voltaic Slash.

Double Experience Weekend - What Happened? | 03.17.2014, 09:19 AM
Hey everyone,

I know that there was definitely some unhappiness that came out of this past double XP weekend and I wanted to address a little bit about what happened, and we are doing about it. There are two main issues which plagued the weekend:
  • In certain group compositions, no experience is granted during a Flashpoint.
  • The Kuat Drive Yards Flashpoint was awarding only normal experience for NPC kills, it was not being doubled.
Understandably, many players look to Flashpoints to level during our double XP weekends and so there is quite a bit of frustration that these bugs were present. Let's take them one at a time. The first bug, where no XP is being granted at all is something that we are aware of, and it will actually be fixed tomorrow in Game Update 2.6.2. The KDY issue, unfortunately, was only discovered after double XP went live and as such, there wasn't much that can be done.

Why not just cancel double XP until the issues are resolved?
I understand that if you intended to level through Flashpoints, this past weekend may not have been the best. However, there are many folks who were looking forward to the double XP weekend who level outside of Flashpoints and it would have been unfair to them to move the weekend out.

Why not just bring the servers down and fix these issues on Friday?
We would only do this in situations where there is a very critical issue present, such as a major exploit or an issue preventing players from playing at all.

What now?
I have spoken to the dev team and we are both in agreement that we should do another double XP weekend. Again, to readdress the issues from above, after tomorrow non-KDY Flashpoints should no longer have the issue where no experience will be awarded. As a note, I am still trying to get a timeline on when we would be able to address the KDY issue. Although it will be our goal to have both of these issues addressed before we have our next double XP, it is possible that KDY may not be addressed by then. However you will definitely be able to get double XP out of our other Flashpoints.

I know the big question right now is "when is the next double XP then?" I do not have that answer at this exact moment, but I am going to try to get that answer to you as soon as possible!

I apologize to those of you who were looking to "Flashpoint your face off" this weekend. We are going to work on getting you back into those Flashpoints with some double XP at your back soon™.

KDY FP not granting double XP for NPC kills | 03.14.2014, 05:12 PM
Hey all,

As many of you suspected, we were able to confirm that experience is not granting as intended in Kuat Drive Yards. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the bug, we won't be able to fix it during this Double XP Weekend.

Thank you for your understanding,

I hope the devs can realize this and work on it.
We did find out that there was a problem with how XP was granted based on group composition, but we sorted it out and this will get taken care of in 2.6.2!

Community Team Livestream - Friday March 14th | 03.14.2014, 08:33 AM
Hey everyone!

This afternoon we will be having another livestream on our official Twitch channel. The stream will kick off at 4PM CDT and run until 6PM CDT.

Right now I am unsure if I will be the one playing or if Tait will. It depends on my availability towards the end of the day. If I play, I will be continuing to play my Operative on the Prophecy of the Five server. If Tait plays, he will be playing his Jedi Knight on the Bastion.

Tune in and we'll see you there!

April!

This was discussed a bit in the most recent TOR Insider video, but the dates have fluctuated a bit from what was said in it. Musco actually posted about this on the SWTOR subreddit.

Double XP + RestXP + BonusXP boost... | 03.13.2014, 12:13 PM

Is RestXP + DoubleXP + BonusXP (25% buff) going to give us 325% total, or is it more?

Hope that question made sense.
I saw some folks asking for it in another thread so I thought I would post this here. During our original Double XP event I made a "mathy" post explaining a bit about how it worked, you can find it here.

Here is what I said:

My understanding of the system is that all of our boosts will multiply from the new base of 200%, so now is the perfect time to get those Legacy perks and XP boosts. I will show you why.

Let's say you planned to level during the March to Makeb entirely through... Flashpoints.

200% base experience
+25% Flashpoint Boost
+30% Flashpoint Legacy perk

*THIS BONUS DOES NOT STACK WITH RESTED EXPERIENCE

Since both of the boosts are being applied to double base XP, they are also doubled. Do you know what that means?!

+310% bonus experience! That is over triple the experience. Enjoying your leveling my friends!

TLDR, yes they stack and for the math nerds it is multiplicative on top of the new base of 200% (assuming I understood it all correctly)

Thanks!
