You mean 240 augments? Stuff I can get from the GTN is a none-issue.

I never understood why expertise AND bolster existed, and I still don't. bolster doesn't require expertise to level the stats in WZs. So getting rid of expertise gear isn't fundamentally a problem. But the way they've done this, it seems min/maxing requires you to do heavy pve grinding.

However, the biggest gearing absurdity I've encountered since coming back is that mods and enhancements are locked to slot. It made sense for armorings because set bonuses are tied to them. But doing so for mods and enh is pure pettiness.
Augments:
The iokath purple you can just use a few Comand Tokens (everyone has spare of these) and crodits. You trade it in the same vendor that you get purple Comand Boosts iwhen you run out of drops from comand crates.
The expensive Mat for augments is the purple one CMT. It goes for arround 1.5M each single on GTN (they also drop from command crates). You need two of those for each 236 augments (what you should aim) or 4 for 240 (no really whorty in most cases). Or you can buy the augments: arround 3M for 236 or 6M for 240.

Mods and Enhancements:
I agree, it is absurd. This is the worst along RNG from 252 boxes.

I'm still pissy the gear was added in the first place. Because the studio interprets participation in an activity as enjoying it, I will not participate in any activity that gives 252 or 258 gear. There will be no misinterpretation, Musco. I think adding gear without increasing the rest of the content's difficulty is almost as idiotic as thinking that I was playing the game for gear grinding, which is almost as stupid as adding in a NiM mode of an op that, by your own statement was already scaled to NiM.

My guild largely died because of pvp changes, and this ludicrous gear system (difficult to obtain or not, for our purposes it doesn't matter, its the fact it exists and is not tied to the previously existing gear system, that I might add, Musco, took you 6 months to begin to get to a tolerable level of rng and grind) ensures I spend most of my time elsewhere. On the odd occasion I play swtor, I pointedly ignore any content that gives the new gear. Your response to the broken mission that didn't give me my lightsaber was the final straw.

In short. Musco, even you and Mr. Kanneg cannot confuse participation with pleasure, because I refuse to participate in any content involving the new gear. At this point, if I got a piece in a crate I wouldn't use it out of sheer principle. Yes, I'm stubborn. I have also been one of your loyal customers for over half a decade. Where is the retribution for my loyalty?

Reputation is easy to get, the tokens come from the dailies and weeklies on Ossus and also from PVP daily/weekly.

There is yes. You need Legend (highest) for some of the gear.

solo ranked weekly I believe provides you with a purple rep. do say 6? maybe in a week and you max your rep cap.



I've personaly completely stopped playing. the only content I llogged in to do was solo ranked and now every match I get its me and 3 globalables vs 1 good player and 3 globalbles. its just whos nubs die faster that decides the win, not cc, tactics or dps counts.

there's a weekly cap on one's legacy as per every other rep in the game. so...I guess it depends on what you want to buy.

still, it's worth doing the weeklies on as many alts as you can stomach just to pass gear/weapons to your main(s).

stockpiling rep tokens is w/e. you're going to do the same amount of work whether you do it all at once or week by week.

it's purely individual preference, but I like the swtor system for rep grinds and rewards much more than the wow system and the fact that rep gear in wow is useless by the time you unlock it or that it forces you to grind rep just to use the flying mount(s) you already own. then there's the whole thing in BFA where you have to grind rep just to access abilities in your gear that you'll trade up from before having the rep to unlock them...but I digress. heh.

I mean, this gear is only needed for the raiders going in to nim gods, otherwise you don’t really need it and it will take you more time it get it... it’s how his tier was designed, if you don’t do gods it’s slower to get.

I used 3 alts because I have no time to farm on a lot of chars. I started in december after 5.10 launched and I will b full 258 next week after I buy the offhand/mainhand weapons+ the last 2 relics.

Was fast ? Not really... but it wasn't any less painful than getting 242 or 248 back in the day.
If you read what he said, he said he was only wanting to pvp, not do pve dailies, which is reasonable because we shouldn’t be forced to do pve so we can gear up for pvp.
