Yeah, he is much anticipated by many. Hence, he has very high "tease value" and one thing all MMO companies do is tease with some of their future content. HK-51 is the pefect tease IMO.

Anything over the next year or two for solo players?

What are the chances that a new tier of PvP gear will be released along with the new Warzone and new PvE tier?
I talked to David Hunt (Systems Designer), and he shed some light upcoming gear. He said that (for PvE), Terror from Beyond's Hard Mode will include a new set of gear that is a sub-tier of the larger tier that started with Campaign gear. It will also have non-slot restricted armornings. Nightmare Explosive Conflict will speed up the acquisition of the new set and provides new challenges for Operation groups.

For PvP, new mainhand and offhand items will become available from the PvP vendors when Terror from Beyond is released. These will be included so PvP players don't feel the need to get the hilts and barrels from PvE items to get the highest weapon damage in some cases. The rest of the set will release when Ancient Hypergates becomes available. We also have plans to release a new Recruit MK-2 set.

Thank you Allison. Great follow-up!

Wow - this is fantastic info. I have to say, I was very dubious about the decision to cancel the weekly Q&A to give more frequent feedback and developer info, thinking that it was an excuse to communicate less. All I can say is that the last few days have definitely proved me wrong! (so far)

I particularly like the new format of "I talked to [insert name] who is [insert title]..." - it gives the posts life as there is an actual person who is working and answering our questions. Keep up the good work!

Also, thanks for the info on gear

We will definitely still be releasing bug fixes, balance tweaks, and other similar changes as part of our updates. You'll want to keep an eye on our blog for more info, as we will continue to make updates to it explaining things like class balance changes, just like we have in the past.[/QUOTE]

I most certainly would not hold my breath on this. The amount of time it takes bw to push content and BUG fixes is really really really slow. Which patch was it you all claimed to have monthly content up dates? 1.1 - 1.2? Here we are in the month of August with a EVENT which correct me if I am wrong but it will be gone after a set amount of time passes? So that in my eyes is NOT a content update. To me so far this month BW has failed again to deliver content as said.
The dev team should be know as "Mother Goose", full of fairy tails that are make believe.

I'm afraid I don't have much more information about upcoming content right now, but we'll continue to work to bring you more information!

ya know I just realized something...with new content only coming out every 6 weeks it makes more sense just to do monthly sub and only play a month sub then 2 weeks free then resub for another month of content...You actually end up saving money off a pure sub even the 6 mo version plus you still get to experience the new content. Pretty confident that most guilds should be able to handle any new content within a month.
