We don`t know if their metrics tell them the vast majority is doing a mix of top 2 tiers or not. Split decision . But 2 mistakes about itemization start to look suspicious.

Or they are just THAT bad and all this is redundant.
Pretty sure they are that bad...one would think a higher ranking modification or enhancement would be better than something that is lower and easier to get. Bioware needs to stop relying on some program some person made that tries to determine best stat itemization and actually play the game at the end game level to see what it really should be like...looks like another Mod/enhancement shuffling up debacle...oh and for healers and melee folks they get to shuffle hilts/barrels around it seems

I still like this game and will continue to play it. This "new" gear being awful looking is not a make or break thing, but it does seem like they just threw this in with the OP so when people complain about no content they can say, "We just gave you a new operation AND new gear. What else do you want." It could not have taken that long to re-color this gear, so what were they talking about several months ago when they said they were already working on some new gear that they think we'll like. It can't be this.

Well... for 2 of my armor slots Rakata is better than both Campaign AND BH; main stat higher Rakata, that is. Let alone the fact that I`d need to cross-mod really hard to actually get to min-max level. But yes, you may be right... sadly.

Players have expressed some dissatisfaction with endgame armor sets can you comment on your plans for future endgame appearances?

Daniel Erickson: We have heard the community loud and clear when it comes to armor sets. What weve heard the players say is, I dont care how high level I get, I still want my core sets to look and feel like Star Wars and like my class - cooler but not crazy. Keep the crazy to optional gear. I will warn that creating new armor is a part of our game with long lead times so it will take a set or so before players see a strong shift in direction but were already working on some stuff I love and I think players will too.
Yeah i remember this post. Strange how everything have to take forever and ever.

The thing is most of the armor skins represented by the greens/blues in the game are already in game as oranges from world drops and/or crafting. There are not many gaps in the collection that are not yet modable purples/oranges. Which is why I really don't get all the angst about what the armor skins on the top tier gear is. If you could not pull the mods and put them in the gear of your choice, I would understand.

So simple styling, as well as a good assortment of more flamboyant styling, are already in game as modable items.

There are some nice armor styles on some NPCs which are not in game at all yet. It would be nice to see these at some point, but I bet they are going to be cartel coin purchases (which is fine as far as I am concerned).

Like I said in one of the many other threads on this subject, I'm making a bet that they've already abandoned the idea of creating the coolest (aka most ugly/awful) looking ****** tier pieces and devoted their design resources to creating new social/adaptable gear that will be available through CC's, questing and event rewards. Future operations will drop mod sets. This tier set is a holdover because they're just not going to be doing this kind of stuff anymore but they don't have the new system in place yet.

I could be proved wrong there, but seeing as how they've shifted set bonuses to mods, it seems like a fair assumption. And this is how I think it should be. I've had a lot of conversations about this subject with other gamers and we've always been in agreement that with this being a Star Wars game and having limitations on gear "craziness", they kind of painted themselves in a corner with tier designs and it'll probably never work.

I had my husband look at the new costumes. He does not play any kind of computer game, but he has a very good taste in clothing.
The first word to come outof his muouth was "Yuk".
And then he said "And you are paying for this? You look like a Heinz ketchup bottle wearing the red!"

I prefer something I can make myself, or something that looks better like the saus isle at my local Wallmart!
