Hello and welcome to the official Q&A thread for questions to be answered for the June 8th, 2012 Q&A blog post.

As a reminder, we’ll be starting up a weekly Q&A blog series in which we will select ten questions from the community and post answers to them every Friday. We’ll have the next set of answers next week on June 8th, 2012, but before that, we need your questions!

Please use this thread to ask your question (one per community member, so make it count!). On Monday at 2PM CDT (8PM BST/9PM CEST/5AM AEST), we will close this thread, select ten questions, and get answers to them for Friday’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!

Is there any chance that BW will add single player dailies to the game? i really liked the Rakghoul dailies but they were only temporary. dont take this the wrong way the heroics are great but i would like some single player dailies just to fill in the blanks of the day.

I think it's time for some clarification on Cyan/Purple crystals, the same way you guys clarified the current status on Green, Orange, and Yellow.

Prior to the release of 1.2, we were told that the Cyan and Purple crystals would become craftable and/or obtainable in ways that did not involve end-game Ops or PvP participation and would not be restricted by faction.

Now that 1.2 has been released, there is no evidence that this has come to pass for anything other than PvP Expertise Crystals.

Just telling us "the truth is out there" is insufficient. The forums are filled with nothing but confusion and misinformation (largely because some people confuse Magenta ("Pink") with Purple).

Please answer the simple question: Is it currently possible in-game to obtain Cyan or Purple color crystals that contain PvE stats in a way that's not tied to end-game Operations or PvP, and are the colors available to both factions? As a bonus, can you give a hint as to how they are obtained (e.g. luck, space, world bosses, etc.)?

I'm glad to see that ranked warzones are still on track, but I'm still waiting on some specific information regarding the character transfer service (how it will be carried out, dates, target servers, etc.). Can you at least give us something to help plan for what will be an almost certain cluster****?

It has always bugged me that my bounty hunter cant use a blaster rifle like boba fett, why did you choose dual pistols over the blaster rifle and is there any chance of that changing in the future?

Was there ever, or is there a chance that Sniping Imperial Agents could get a Sniper Mode that would allow the Sniper AC of the Imperial Agent to be somewhat of a true/actual Sniper? Perhaps this could include being able to move into a Scope Mode where we look down the Scope of the Sniper Rifles and doing different amounts of damage depending on where we hit on the body of the enemy along with if they are wearing Armor, perhaps including type of Armor.

Some companions seem to make poor decisions at times. Healers choose to chain CC over healing and tanks break CC with their AoE skills, will we see any improvement in companion AI in the near future?

This may sound like a trivial bug, but it is currently the only bug that affects me and thus not trivial to sorely breaks my immersion.

I was wondering if we have a status update on fixing the igniting lightsaber/holstering a lit lightsaber. Currently when I do dailies, my companion appears with ignited lightsaber. Then when I zone, the lightsaber disappears, but the companion animates as though it were holding a lightsaber. Then if I unequip/re-equip the lightsaber, it reappears, but after the first fight, the companion holster's it while it remains ignited. Only after a second fight is the animations all synced up again where the saber is ignited/de-ignited as expected.

I realize there are work-arounds, but it just becomes tedious day after day.

Will we be getting a HK droid as a companion in game update 1.3?
