Since the release of patch 5.4 in the Vetern Flashpoint Hammer Station isn't dropping
any of the Refined Isotope Stabilizers off of the bosses.

https://torcommunity.com/database/it...pe+stabilizer/

These are a tier 2 exotic crafting material and are used for many different
Enchancements and Mods. Artifice Items, Weapons, Armor etc.

There is no mention in the 5.4 patch notes that there was going to be any
kind of a change to these. Prior to the 5.4 patch this morning they would drop
off each one of the bosses in the flash point.. now they are just totally gone and
the only thing the bosses are giving out are the CXP packs.

Can some one please look into this I do believe that this is a bug as
your 5.4 patch notes make absolutely no mention of any change that the
Vetern Flashpoints would stop dropping these Refined Isotope Stabilizers.
This has only happened since the release of the 5.4 patch this morning
(August 24 2017)

They nerfed it down to 1 per boss rather than 1 per player last update with no patch notes too. There has been no response to multiple posts and bug reports.

Oh horsepoopy
Why are they taking my crafting materials away?
That's just annoying. I hope this is a bug that will be fixed fast and not a stealth nerf.

I can confirm, zero isotope drops in veteran FPs after the patch today!

Yes, no drops from veteran flashpoints, and not noted in the release notes. And, the items crafted from Refined Isotope Stabilizers still require the same number of items. Make an item rarer, but not reduce the number needed for crafting. Thanks Bioware. NOT!

EDIT

I also apologize for not reading the release notes more carefully. It is indeed noted now.

My comment about making a crafting material resource much more difficult to acquire, yet not reducing the number needed for crafting many items stands. Okay, the goal of making crafting items more costly and difficult has been met.

Hey folks,

I apologize for missing this in the patch notes. I verified with the team and this is an intended change. It is intended that the Refined Isotope Stabilizers only drop from Master Mode Flashpoints and Operations of all difficulties, as indicated by the Stabilizers tooltip.

I will get this added to the patch notes right away.

So what then encourages people to run VFP? CXP? People hate GC, that's not an attractive option.

Good job making the game less fun though BWA ... really awesome design choices.

Ugh! Ya'll are just making it more and more difficult for me to continue my sub and continue playing the game. The way it was before was perfect! But nope, lets continue screwing the community of players. Thanks guys. The game is starting to feel more like work and I'm having less and less fun playing it.

They found out players liked that, so it had to be changed. OMG really, *** this is the dumbest change since 5.x launched. Might as well just take refined isotope stabilizers out of the game, if mass majority of players will not have ability to get them anymore. Great job, it almost seems like you are trying to make the game less fun sometimes.
