sorry if this does not seem relevant to the roadmap at this time, this is my fist time using the forums and i just wanted to ask about companions. Have you yet considered adding additional companion conversations as i feel like we didnt get enough of them in the expansions due to other companions and story being in the way. And why do they not retun to our ship when we get them back?

I agree with this sentiment, the companion conversations in the original 8 class storylines was always something I really looked forward to. It was always a great way to develop romances, to get to know them and to help their in their little quests. It was such a unique and lovely feature which I do miss quite a bit in KotET and KotFE. The companions have lost their uniqueness a tad as they have become a little bit of interchangable furniture as someone pointed out in another thread, which is a pity. Having those companion conversations back would be great, especially as it could also enhance the romances a little bit as they are a bit... underdeveloped in my opinion in the two new expansions. You only get an interaction ever so often and you can't take things really serious with your partners, like marry Theron or Lana for example. I do miss that quite a bit, yeah.
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!

Some of us have an addiction to getting these pets, so... :P
Good question. I'll have someone look into it, but certain exclusive pets will unlikely be made available.

Agreed, plus the amount of coordination it would take with any 3rd party developers could be horrifying. And, if they coded it wrong, it breaks the game. I think we do well enough on our own there. But, definitely interested with improving the UI to make it easier for us healers...I mean for everyone.

Hi,

Will issues regarding bonus series quest chains being broken be looked at? I had an experience with Balmorra Bonus Series 2 - and have seen similar comments regarding other bonus series quest chains online (but have myself not experienced it). My character is locked out of the questchain and unable to continue because she was able to complete it earlier, unaware that it would lock her out from the bonus series quest chain.

Please see: http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...&postcount=326 (a post I made else where) for further details.

Thanks for your time.

Is there any chance we could see the Valkorion/Acina-style Dark Side Corruption Eye Colour anytime soon on the Cartel Market? It would be amazing if it was an appearance option that was made available to all species with humanoid eyes, but maybe even the Cathar could get their own special version of it? The design of the Eye Colour both mentioned characters have is just so insanely beautiful. The first time I saw it I was really enthralled by it!

Hi Keith,

respectfully, you've been a GM for WoW and they have 10 times fold SWTOR player base. We both know the addons aren't that much of an issue as long as we are not speaking of automation but graphic UI and positioning tweaking.

You guys can certainly allow players to edit the UI frames

For example the companion UI buttons are mostly useless but maybe for 2 of them and they are taking room for nothing. Then the raid frames aren't convenient at all. The long term class buffs are not useful and the triggered combat icons effects aren't that visible. I don't need 6x12 quickslot bars but 2x16 and 6x6. So why not allowing players to edit them and do your job?

For some stuff we don't need to see the icon, just be able to bind a hot key to it, so allow us to bind directly hot key to skills, pets, companions, emotes, toys without having to put them in quickslots.

Then most certainly you can add macros for RPer emotes, tells and such without opening the Pandora box

But before anything else, we are in a dire need of a one button ignore/report a character, at least characters wide for a player and even better ignore the account. Oh and for god's sake please have someone fix the gear preview window.
