So does this mean it is certain that there will be no other uses for the tokens? Because I will spend them on companion weapons and pets if thats the case.

It is a bit strange for rewards to be geared for such specific advanced classes.

Your feedback is definitely appreciated and we’ll look into different ways to improve our item selection in the future.

Thanks for participating!
What about the reasoning behind the mount not being 110% speed? I can understand the weapon thing (even though I think its a poor choice) but the speeder not being top speed? Weird.

I read someone else post this and it changed my thinking: "It makes sense that it is only 90% when you factor in that it is down a motor and pouring smoke and sparks."

So people at 50 may wish to have the 110% on their travel speeder, but when you look at it as a novelty item and not a means of travel it all makes sense. It is not logical for the person who needs a Tier 3 speeder to get around. It does make sense to people that like odd speeders.

To me it wouldn't make sense for a broken down old jalopy moving at the same pace as a Porsche.

IMHO you're going to be able to upgrade the speeder through RMT.

I still find it unfortunate, but what I really wanted to say was:

Thank you for the explanation. At least it makes sense. Blaster Pistols and Lightsabers will have to wait. I just hope it's not another 3-6 months for both. Honestly, I'm kinda of glad. The grind for this one is far more tedious and pits players against one another far too much.

Oddly, there are people who still don't think it's a good idea to group up or make an ops group and would rather stand in line, be angry when people cut, and then cut themselves. All solved by joining a group.

Speaking of which, I would like to thank someone for allowing us to complete these objectives in an Ops group. That was a great idea. It would have been best to not have to depend on people being civil to reach your objective, but the few times I have had people willing to join a group, it's worked very well.

Funny. I thought the implementation of the Cartel Store was the Rise of the Hutt Cartel. And no, I do not like what that story has to offer. I keep getting screwed in it.

Come on BioWare. With nearly every decision you make it seems you just don't know what the heck you're doing.

You've done 2 events over the life of the game. To tell people to wait for the next event is nothing more than an admission of failure on your guys' part.

You should just make sure that the reward item types are fairly distributed for all advanced classes for every single event.

By the way, with Bound on Legacy Wookiee Bowcasters in the game, does that mean we may see Wookiees as playable species in the future?

Ok 1st. This is poor reasoning and its thought process like this that anger the players and have resulted in what TOR has become.

2nd, MONTHS ago the quest rewards were data mined and posted on these very forums players gave feedback that said "I hope there are rewards for other classes"
It would have been nice if you guys had read that thread and added rewards for ALL CLASSES!
The Crew Skills button must also be a UI bug like the HIGH setting for textures.

Wookiees still can't speak basic... so the answer is still no.
