Hi Eric!

Please tell us when a new bugfix-patch arrives. I ask, because for our guild its almost impossible to raid, because half of the members have chosen the "wrong" side and can not form an OP-group for Tyth. This bug is the most annoying one!

Please, don't let us hanging!
Thank you in advance!

As a temporary workaround that my guild has done, you can organize everyone to choose the same side (after they've done the story). You can change it once per day as long as you haven't done any quests for the day. It won't affect the story, so the members that care about that won't have that affected. Yeah it's a pain, but at least until they fix it, there is a workaround.

Many people? Are there actually people that can change sides? I mean, i know that after story if you played empire you can choose Rep after you finish. But after that choice, has someone been able to change? If so, any Iokath mission still active? I tried removing everything exept the Op and the Weekly.

Now, i was expecting a patch this tuesday. The number of bugs and issues that 5.2 started seems too high to ignore for over a week.

You have to remove the weekly quest, and possibly the ops quest too. You can't have any quests you accepted while being attuned to the 'wrong' side in your log. Otherwise you'll just get kicked out of the group when yout ry to enter the ops.

If you STILL can't change faction after removing all Iokath quests from your log, then you're affected by the bug, sadly.
