I didn't read this in the patch note but spending 2 hours wiping on EC nightmare is costing us close to 200k now. Did anyone realize this and is this an intended change?

Yes, this was apparently an intended change.

It's like BW wants us to stop raiding altogether. It's obscene how high repair costs are now, especially for anyone in 61+ gear.

They fixxed a bug and increased the repair costs immensely by doing that

Doing the dailies costs nearly as much as they give as a reward

This is almost like a tax on doing progression ops.

Give me a break. There was no reason for this fix other than someone's OCD going off.

You mean you wipe while doing dalies? How bad can one be?

Gear gets damaged even without wiping

Yeah, exactly. I just did a full set of Ilum event dailies last night and had a whopping 843 credit repair bill for my Dread Guard gear.

Wiping on operations during a progression run I can understand. During dailies??

In fact the tanks should get even rarer than before, because they have to take a lot of dmg which leads to high repair costs.
So tanks should be paid the repair cost by the group

Did you have a tank companion by your side, taking all the dmg?

Repair costs used to be this high if not higher, but they changed that to what we've been used to.
Now they are back up in cost.
