Thanks for your reports regarding this mission and the associated fishiness where your light side and dark side choices are concerned. We’ve been working on a comprehensive solution to ensure that you receive both the Title and armor that are most appropriate for your character’s chosen side of the Force. These will be integrated into an upcoming patch, though we don’t have any definitive time frame yet.

What we’re doing first is modifying the mission itself for players who have not yet completed Uprooting the Last Seed (Republic)/The Alchemy of Evil (Imperial). The mission will still grant light side or dark side points in the conversation while recovering The Final Seed. Upon mission completion, players will be presented with a choice between one of two containers and can have either the Star Forager or Dreadseed armor and Title as the mission reward.

Secondly, for those characters who have completed one of the missions listed above and selected the light side or dark side choices, digging will be modified to allow for the desired armor and Titles to be obtained. Players will no longer be restricted to digging for gear associated with their alignment choice. Instead, both the Dreadseed and Star Forager armor will be available in the digsites and will be Bind on Legacy. Additionally, players will be able to dig up Bind on Legacy items that grant the Star Forager and Dreadseed Titles.

We appreciate your understanding while we work to get these updates implemented.

Not sure that I agree with that solution but at least you answered them on it and are trying to make it so people can get the armor choice they want.

It happened to me.

Got the cutscene, darkside points, and title. My reward was the starforge chest.

Turned in a bug report and received the correct item, the dreadseed chest. Went digging and received the starforge gloves, threw a fit, and gave up on that toon.

It is bugged for me I could not get past the shield part my group kept feeding the turret generator but it stopped at 87.5% no matter how many power cores we put in it. After 3 tries we were done trying please take a look into this

Happened to me last night. I have the screenshot with the quest completion window to prove it: 100 DS points (indicating I did, in fact, select the correct option for the Dreadseed chest) and a Star Forager chestpiece as my reward.

And if I'm understanding the planned fix, it's going take the already-slim drop chance of the seeker droid finding Dreadseed armor and HALVE that by doubling the number of possibilities (1 duplicate Star Forager piece for every Dreadseed piece)?

That's absurd, and a bit of a middle finger to the folks who did nothing wrong here; it's not like I clicked the incorrect option and want a do-over. I just want the piece I chose, with the correct seeker droid loot table implemented on my character (i.e. Dreadseed drops, not Star Forager drops). Please, just take responsibility for this mistake and don't impose an even greater burden on your player base.

Waiting on a response from an in-game ticket, but I'm certainly not hopeful. Fingers crossed that someone will do the right thing here.

So what are you supposed to do? My log says I have to click on the seed to complete the mission. If I leave the instance without clicking on the seed is it going to update the mission, or am I going to have to re-do the whole thing? Or can I break group and then click on the altar solo, would that work?

Yes, it is SW(KO)TOR. I like it that way, except when I don't.

I can confirm this bug as well. Our group had 2 LS characters and 2 DS. The LS roll won and the altar was not clickable afterwards according to the DS players. One of them turned in the quest and got a Star Forager chest to just confirm that this bug exists.

For the other guy, we turned in the quests, asked him to reset it and did it again for him.

Workaround: Only one group of people (LS or DS) should interact with the altar at the same time, the group that made the choice can go to Coruscant/Dromund Kaas and turn it in for the armor. Then they can return to Ilum, reset the quest and let the other group pick the other morality choice.

So if this is a known/acknowledged issue, when can we expect to see it listed on the known issues thread? http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=641546

I'm still sitting around, waiting to be able to acquire the set I CORRECTLY chose but was denied access to, all due to BioWare's faulty quest design. Do we have an ETA on a fix for this yet?

As an update, the first ticket went unresolved. On the second ticket, they swapped my Star Forager chest for a Dreadseed one, but failed to correct the loot table for my seeker droid; so now I have 100 dark side points, a Star Forager title, a Dreadseed chest, but a Star Forager loot table (confirmed by unearthing a Star Forager belt) with no way of completing the rest of my Dreadseed set.

I still believe the proposed solution is the wrong one, as it reduces an already-slim drop chance by doubling the number of options.
