It's been a month and he still has not put up a single (properly working) biochem schematic. The same synthweaving set has shown up twice. One week he only has a single thing which is a set. Another he has two tacticals that were both bugged.

He is a failed experiment and utterly garbage design. Fix him. Do not wait until your crafting patch in december. Do it this coming week before he resets again. Make him always carry at least one tactical and one set or better yet make him carry at least one schematic from each crew skill.

Failed experiments are fine and how we learn. Sticking your head in the sand and pretending to act like the horrendously failed experiment is working perfectly is not fine.
RIP The Fatman.

Agreed. It was a fail idea because every week we see same garbage and not the thing we want. They should have put a restriction that same recipe won't appear 1-2 times in a row so we finally could get what we want. Better if it was an ordinary vendor with everything at once because this rng crap is getting more annoying each patch and results in players quiting the game

Of course it failed - it was idiotic to start with.

Had Kai been an OPTIONAL way to obtain items at a lower cost (e..g Kai's discount store) if and when they showed up in his selection, it might have been an interesting twist.

But no, they had to pick a couple of items that only affect a couple of classes and lock them behind absurd crafting requirements, then lock those schematics behind a random vendor, then screw all that up with bugged schematics.

ALL sets and tactical items should be available for purchase at all times from the regular vendors for the regular prices UNLESS they restrict the same number of desirable items for EVERY class.

Crafting should be used as a primary source for sets IF AND ONLY IF all classes have similarly desirable sets that are only available through crafting.

Crafted set schematics should be clearly labeled, available through multiple sources (again Kai should be for finding a discount, not the only source), and use reasonable materials in line with comparable vendor costs (e.g. a couple million in mats tops, not tens of millions when vendor items are one million).

Yeah, its not really working out, just triggering people. They should just make it all purchaeable and have us grind the Fragments for it.

Agree.

Either put everything on that vendor for every class, every crew skill, etc., or remove it altogether. Putting it up for a limited time frame was already a questionable decision, but having a very limited selection to choose from while it's available is just idiotic.

Keep the vendor's time frame and prices intact, but put everything on it, it's very simple.

Pointless mentioning it for they all left for vacation. It's going to be quiet until end of January.
