All the systems for 6.0 seem unappealing. Bioware you need to pay attention.

The 20 levels of gear should only happen once, if you approach it optimally.
You misunderstand. I said 3.0 was less of a grind than 5.0 and 6.0 will be more of a grind than 5.10.

And on top of that, main stats are not very consistent in same "Named" (like the countless variations we have now with mods and enhs): https://imgur.com/a/UhOcXrB

As for why can't we have mods and enhacements in ear and implants. I always saw those as "extra" enhacements.
Yeah, I personally don't like having swap around gear because I won a really good piece of gear with completely wrong stat. It's almost as bad as winning an Ephemeral Mending relic in 5.10.

Cutting waaaay back on the material and time costs of crafting while boosting the RE chances back up again would make crafting a viable path for at least the early stages of gearing. Right now it's insanely bad.

Static, non-set piece gear should only be BoL after being equipped so it can be sold on the GTN.

Vendors shouldn't be RNG. Just no! It's fine having Kai Zykken have a random selection, like the old Diablo vendors, as long as you know exactly what you are getting and it isn't exorbitantly priced. And he should be available all week long. Just give him a weekly reset.
I think I would rather have specific loot tokens too. I'm trying to imagine my satisfaction with gearing in this new loot system 6 months after launch. I already blindly destroy the items in my GC crates without even looking at them, so it looks like I will be doing the same thing on a larger scale in 6.0. Good thing for the little "up" arrow on the dropped gear that signifies the piece is an upgrade -- or I might auto-destroy every piece of green garbage I come across.

lol the arrow thing was probably because they saw most of us just destroying everything in the GC crates.

My apologies, correct my original post, even though the context was accurate.

Couldn’t stay away from the testing 😳 (FYI, not logged into main game, only PTS) because I feel the more testing the better and I don’t want to be one of those people who moan about it after it’s done.

Currently testing graphics as it seems this has been missing in the testing. I will start a write up in the PTS forum.
