You have to be trolling because if you are serious then you have never been in HM EC or NiM EC. I am going with you are just trolling.

But just in case you are serious

1. calibrating shot
2. Cleave
3. Overload

Probably the Seige droids. Just a thought though.
Regardless, yes, it would be nice to have low repair costs, but this much of a public outcry is completely unwarranted. People have this mindset that if they make a huge fit about something it'll change and make them happier rather than being logical, calm adults. This truly is the scum of MMO Forum garbage at it's best. (not you specifically, just the extremely negative posts here in general)

Items and Economy

General
Item sell values and item repair costs now reflect the value of the items and any enhancements attached to them. Previously, items were incorrectly being valued without their enhancements.


How I read this is that now if your gear has augments on them that the augments factor in to the repair bill.
I don't care who you are. I don't care if you are male, or female, black, or white, gay, or straight, religious, or non-religious, old or young. I care about 3 things. Can you tank properly? Can you DPS properly? Can you heal properly?

Right now we're at TFB HM because we stopped raiding for about 3 months due to one of our tanks being hospitalized, so we're a bit slow.
Please list the abilities from Kephess and TfB that can be interrupted, also Z+T and FB+SC.
Also unless it's been changed Overload is uninterruptible in EC NiM afaik.
Calibrating Shot is a no-brainer and I'm not saying that you shouldn't use interrupts. You have to, but most of the time there are situations in ops that will wipe you that have nothing to do with interrupt or CC...

There is a difference I believe between consequences, and making it extremely difficult for some guilds to complete progression level raiding. I believe we have crossed that line with this recent "fix". It is going to stymie raid progression among a TON of guilds. Maybe this is intended to slow raid progression among players and keep them subscribing but honestly thats a pretty crappy mechanic to put in place in order to keep people subbed.

Moving the goal post far?

I never wrote anything about Kephess needing to be interrupted, I also never wrote anything about Zorn and Toth and Firebrand and Stormcaller. I never wrote interrupts should be used all the time. There are even times when you can interrupt something, you shouldn’t interrupt some things (you want one specific I can think of off the top of my head – Trash pulls in EC). However, if you use interrupts (when needed and appropriate), use CC’s (again where needed and appropriate) and use defensive cooldowns (again nice if you know the fight and don’t use up you defensive cooldown right before a lighting phase or right before you are doomed) then you can substantially lower your repair cost. (cannot believe I have to be so exact on comments for stuff anyone in a progression group should know).

You're in no position to complain about dishonest argumentation.

Incidentally, since you seem to be taking a ProerThanThou approach to things, when exactly did you clear NiEC?

Sorry should know sarcasm and the internet don't mix.

I have taken no such approach. TOR is my first MMO. It is my first time healing in any type of game. I was the worse healer in the history of TOR when I leveled and hit level 50 and started group play. I died more times than I can count leveling. At the time repair cost were even higher than they are now. So I know if I can do it, then 99.999999% of anyone in the game can do it. Now I can level a toon and count on my hands how many times I die while leveling. Not bragging, has nothing to do with my skill as a player, it has to do with experience in the game, knowing how to gear and learning about my toons abilities.

Never wrote I had.

I have cleared HM TfB a few times with other groups, but my main group is on Terror (haven't even attempted final boss yet).

I have also been in NiM EC with two other groups, but combined I have seen three boss fights and only cleared two bosses and I did cause at least two wipes on my own while in there the first time. So I have studied all the fights to make sure I do not do that again. First time in I was a last moment replacement healer, so I was not prepared. Second and third time I was there I was still last min replacement, but I was prepared.

Did you notice mike was arguing with a player snidely proclaiming "Yeah I'd love you to tell me what I'm supposed to interrupt in EC" in response to a valid point that using interrupts will help reduce repair cost?

What weird interpretation turned that into "ProerThanThou"?
