Update: Hi everyone! Thanks to Community Representative Parali, we now have an archive of all the Q&A questions that have ever been asked. Please take a look here to see if your question(s) may have already been answered.

Thanks! - JG

Hello and welcome to the official Q&A thread for questions to be answered for the May 25th, 2012 Q&A blog post.

As a reminder, we’ll be starting up a Q&A blog series in which we will select ten questions from the community and post answers to them on Fridays. We’ll have the next set of answers in two weeks on May 25th, 2012, but before that, we need your questions!

For the next Q&A, we will be focusing on questions regarding Game Update 1.3, so please keep your questions limited to that topic.

Please use this thread to ask your question (one per community member, so make it count!). On May 22nd, 2012 at 2PM CDT (8PM BST/9PM CEST/5AM AEST), we will close this thread, select ten questions, and get answers to them for May 25th's blog post.

In order to increase the chances of having your specific question answered and to help us keep the thread manageable, here are some guidelines on asking questions:
  1. Keep your question relatively short. Background details are welcome, but don’t go overboard.
  2. Please actually ask a question. We want to hear constructive feedback elsewhere in the Forums.
  3. Use common sense – we cannot answer everything, especially on far-reaching content.
  4. This should go without saying, but be respectful.
  5. Limit yourself to one question in this thread, please. You can always ask another question next week!
  6. And finally, as a reminder, this is not a discussion thread. Do not comment about what somebody else has posted.

As development plans are always subject to change, questions about future features will often get vague answers which can be repetitive and sometimes annoying. With that in mind, the development team is more interested in questions about current in-game features or systems, or questions about why development decisions were made. You’re still welcome to ask questions about future features and we’ll continue to answer them where appropriate – just expect the occasional ‘soon.’

Any other posts apart from questions in the thread will be removed.

With that being said, please ask away!

Should we expect to see fixes for item display bugs ( rakata forcemaster's chestpiece and many more ) ?

Roleplayers make up only a small portion of the game community however do you have any plans to promote more role-playing mechanics into the game down the line?

Currently, most (all?) of the [Daily] quests are written with a story background more appropriate to a one-time quest. I've killed Torvix at least a dozen times, collected enough Esh-ka weapons to outfit the entire Imperial army, and have corrected a certain Imperial Officer's errors so many times that I'm beginning to suspect he's a traitor, not merely incompetent. It's somewhat jarring for a MMO that prides itself on it's Story content to not have considered this for quests that are designed to be repeatable.

Are there any plans to make future [Daily] quests have a story that actually makes sense to be doing it every day (Or even just more than once)?

As an aside, is there a reason there won't be a Q&A for the 18th?

Is your revamped open-world PvP coming with update 1.3, or can you at least give us some insight into what you are currently working on for open-world PvP?

Since the need for server transfers and the group finder has caused 1.3 to be a features patch, has the
story Ops and FPs content been cut/postponed? (If it was real in the 1st place)

Will Jedi Knights ever get to lower their hoods? I spent a while designing my character for a reason, not to just see a hood.
