From all indication … some adjustments have been made.

I am not sure that the difficulty has really risen. Other than the slight change to how the Comps heal, and I really don't think it is a nerf as much as a delayed start, I have have not seen much difference in how quickly i play through the lower levels. I can't just bounce into 7-8 mobs anymore because the comp takes a little longer to hit that first heal, but i can pull one, and then pull 6-7 more after the first heal is off, and not see any difference.


We will see if any other adjustments have been made once it is back on though.

We are aiming for a build tomorrow, so we'll report back and let you know the status of that.

Sorry for the missed time in Phase 3! We'll get it back up as fast as we can.

So what's happening? Is the PTS coming back up today?

I think there is a greater number of Solo / Story / conquest players than hardcore raiders, so adjust the game not to a minority which is load crying for more difficulty, balance the game for the mayority of players which are still paying there subscriptions and which are not the loudest in the forums.
Uh, no thanks. I wish they would make solo content much harder. Your companion can literally do everything for you right now.

So I ran a few missions, heroics, flashpoints, and pvp both arena and battleground.

Overall it was about as expected.
Hammer Station was a tad bit more challenging at level 70 veteran. Need to see if it can still be soloed, but not too slow or too fast. The gear drops are back to 4 per boss and all for DPS no more tank gear nice.

PVP.
The rewards seem to be lacking compared to the flashpoints. A few pieces and the medpacks and one isotope in the Flashpoints I got nearly seventy isotopes. Then again I think I was the only one needing.

Quests seem to be fine.
Heroics are not dropping the supply crates not sure if it is because I am level 75 or not, but we may still want to max out our specialists.

Other than the cone head *** on the Death Knell set I like what the set bonus does for my DPS.
Still, think new assassin slash is situational at best.
Emotion, yet Peace. Ignorance, yet Knowledge. Passion, yet Serenity.

Chaos, Yet Harmony. Death, yet the Force. Contemplation, yet Duty.

Are set bonuses not functioning in this phase?

I grabbed 3 different sets of gear, all where the 2 piece is 2% alacrity, but am only see 2% overall, even thought it should be 6% because it is 3 different set bonuses, so they should not override/invalidate one another.
I'd put a link here for you to click on, but my link is missing granny.

No, it only adds 2% to the total # of the stat, not the overall percentage. So if you have 1000 for the alacrity stat, the bonus is only 20 extra points.

So in otherwords, all the 2 piece set bonuses are worthless.
