Sawbones repair bill last night was 179 credits. Not really upset about it.

Maybe this will teach people to use defensive cooldowns and interupts.

Or it will teach tanks to give up tanking

I thought they already quit....

Trust me, a healer tanks plenty in HM FP and heroics. So it could affect them too.

In fairness I really didn't pay attention to my other 4 toons repair bills last night, none were anywhere near 10K (I would have remembered that). I just remember the 179 on the sawbones because I was amazed it was so low after soloing the Gree Heroic with HK. (which BTW is stupid - Since you can't use flyby with all the flagged imps around trying to get you flagged. So I do not recommend it. It take forever and a day).

No, I had a dps companion 'cause I like things to die fast. Two dps == time saver.

I'll bring my tank out tonight and see what his repair bill is like.

Well, it seems none of You did TFB HM or EC NiM recently.

Just wipe there and if it costs You at least 100k / evening, You will really get upset.

On tuesday my repair bill was a whopping total of over 150k!!!!!!!!

!
and you must not have been raiding in this game for long, because you would have remembered when doing HMEC in Rakata cost that much or more.

I did hm ec on a alt last night. Reapair cost were outrages in a raid with all alts and newcomers, but still way cheaper than the first time I went there way back when.

That doesn't justify them being high again

The are not high again, they are higher, but not at the level they were originally,

It was a error, they just fixed the error. We should face it, before they fixed this error there was really no penalty for dying, other than you had to do whatever killed you over again. I was more than willing to stealth my way to a chest solo after a comm run in EV. I would do CtS or EoT solo on any character with stealth. Even when people were looking for healers just because I wanted the loot/credits or didn't want to deal with a PUG. Less likely to do that now.

We should be just be thankful that they took their time fixing this error too. Pretty much made progressing though HM EC, HM TFB and most of NIM EC very painless. Now they just need to up the credits in EC to the same level as TfB.

now they made everything even more painfull for anybody and tanks get hit even worse.

I could imagine the very high costs to be a big reason for people not to tank but to play dps

Cost was higher before and we had more tanks back then. Outside of most flashpoints without tanks there is no endgame content.

BioWare releases good, challenging, regular progrssion content and repair cost will have nothing to do with the number of tanks. Tanks will be there because without all three; tanks, healers and dps, there is no way to do progression content.
