Hey folks,

I am seeing some confusion in this thread about how Command Crates determine what gear to give you, so I want to provide some clarity. The spec that is selected via the dropdown in Galactic Command has nothing to do with gear, that only determines what spec you have selected when queueing for content.

When you open a Command Crate the Discipline that you are currently in is what determines what drops from a Crate. Ex: If you are in a tanking Discipline when you open a Crate, tank gear will drop.

I hope that clears up any confusion.

Different DPS classes need gear specific to their class, i am getting accuracy gear on a sage and alacrity gear on a sentinel.

I thought it was just me.. my guardian tank has gotten a grand total of one tanking ear piece and an implant.. on the other hand.. she has accuracy and crit to envy!

edit: Also.. She's gotten 3 sniper rifles and an assault cannon. Yay?

i dont run as tank on any of my toons, and i have been opening crates on my merc main, so why are 90% of the schematics dropping for tanks? i might as well roll a new toon as a tank because now i have gear for one, even tho i hate running as tank

I can tell you that its not working.. My tank is not getting very much Tanking gear from her command crates. I feel sorry for the healers who are going nuts trying to keep me alive with her DPS gear.

I'm DPS spec on my Guardian, but all my drops (which have been relatively plentiful compared to some reports) have been endurance heavy. To be fair, most have been upgrades in some form any way
Okay, how about everyone puts their in a bowl....?

So to answer a few questions people posted after the yellow text:

Your spec does not effect the schemes or random empty oranges you get from the crates. Those are random. You'll note that the schemes are legacy bound and the random oranges are BoE. As for the question of End heavy gear, unless it is a purple set piece, they will not be fully balanced mods. Now Blue 230 enhancements for what ever reason are equal to purple enhancements but the Mods are not balanced and are many times end heavy. As for the question of why am I getting Acc as a sage, unless you are a healer or a tank you need Acc regardless of class. I have openned 70 packs so far and I have not gotten the incorrect gear as a tank. All the pieces, set and not set, have been the correct type of gear. Guildies who I have asked (healing, tank, and DPS specs) have received the correct type of gear each time they have opened a box. Make sure you are in the correct spec when you open a box. I for example often do my dailies as a Veng Jugg and change back to an Immortal Jugg when I open my boxes. The boxes are NOT tied to the spec you were in when you earned the box.

Can I make the suggestion to change the gear from the discipline to the spec selected from the dropdown menu? It's already intuitive and sometimes I solo things on a healer in dps spec for gcp but I want healer gear.
