There is one in General Discussion that shows up in a forum search, titled "Where to get Vial of Isotope-5 now?", and another entitled "Isotope-5 no longer buyable." There's a ton more that show up in a Google search. That's what brought me here in the first place--trying to find out whether Isotope-5 still being in so many recipes for milquetoast gear is a bug or an intentional PITA. And I would really like to know why I can't finish building my HK-51 droid's Czerka parts after I've already spent 750k on recipes alone (four of the HK-51 recipes, one of the tank droid recipes); are the Assassin/Tank droid parts really so much rarer and more special than 156 [Artifact] gear that they ought to still require Isotope-5? The stats sure aren't THAT special, especially compared to what any other companion can equip.

bump.

Are Bioware's developers aware that all 72 armorings, mods, enhancements, relics, ect...still require the isotopes as a mat to craft that stuff? If they do, are they planning to make it more available somehow? If not, why? This is absolutely ridiculous, the prices have already skyrocketed to over 300k per Isotope making all the recipes I've spent 10 of millions collecting virtually useless. If they remove it as a requirement to make the stuff, great, that works. If they put it back in the basic vendor, making it available for 60 basic comms, that works too. Even if they make it a more accessible drop in all operations, that works as well. The current setup is totally screwing the economy over and needs to be addressed ASAP.

Hey folks!

We are aware that all Basic Commendations Vendors have taken Isotope-5 off of their shelves as of Game Update 2.0. This is absolutely a stocking error, and we are working on getting a new shipment out such that they'll be back on sale at the original price very soon.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will be adding this to the Known Issues.

Thank you!

Roflmao 1st it was 4.0, now it's 2.0, So we've been to the future, the past, but during the presence of 2.4 the price will slowly sky rocket. Maybe...

Glad I didn't dump all my commendatins then, thinking they were useless!

It was a pain to find Iso-5 gone when I had a load of MMGs and EEEs ready to be crafted.

You have to have the patience of a Jedi grand master in this game!
