Can I ask, is there any word on when the patch notes will be available, or when the patch will make an appearance on PTS?

I know many who are very anxious to hear this news.

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.
Hi Allison,

Thank you so much for clarifying this topic around new gear.

Could you also, if at all possible, tell us if his Recruit Mk-2 tier will be equivalent of Battlemaster gear? If so, then I assume WH will be available by Warzone commendations and the New Tier that will be offered when Ancient Gates goes live will be available via Rated Coms. Could you confirm or deny?

Thanks.

Do you know if there are any mayor tweaks when it comes to class balance in that patch ?

Hmmm, more Gear Over Skill dominance on PVP, this is not looking good.

Man, screw all those trolls, haters, and negative nancies. Always trying to turn everything into a negative, never happy with anything...it seems they've even infiltrated the CMs! As you can tell, Allison here is obviously compromised by these twisted individuals. Burn her, I say! Burn her!!!!

Seriously though. You're wrong Andryah, as usual.

Good luck with that
Edited because the devs appear to have fixed at least 80% of the crap that was pissing me off.

I can't be the only one who is confused about what exactly a "new set of gear that is a sub-tier of the larger tier that started with Campaign gear" actually means. Could we get some clarification with specific item levels? For example, most of my gear from Explosive Conflict has level 61 mods, enhancements, etc., which is Campaign level. Will the new Operation continue to drop level 61 gear that is just differently itemized? That's how I am reading this post but I could definitely be reading it wrong.

If so, I am very surprised that a new Operation would release with what seems to be sidegrades in terms of gear, given how long most guilds have been farming Explosive Conflict and in some cases even getting their alts into best in slot gear.

I could be wrong as I'm completely guessing here.

But I think what it means by the larg tier is that they'll look the ame visually but different colours. As in maybe Tionese Columi.and Rakata are all considered sub tiers of one big tier.

And now there will be Campaign followed by Whatever EC Nightmare and Terror Drop, Hazmat or whatever it was called. My only confusion is regarding the armourings.
