We know that you are all hungry for more details on itemization in 6.0. Stay tuned, that is one of the first topics we will start deep diving into.

Thanks all.

Please tell us as soon as possible about the fate of unassembled components. I'd still like to know whether I should be spending them now (for toons that don't really need the gear for anything) or if they're worth saving for 6.0

My Ideas for general set bonuses and tactical items are:

Two charges on stun breakers with the same CD or 25% less CD, that would be amazing for ranked, when getting stun locked and tunneled because your class can't stealth out, or pop a defensive which drops agro, such as reflective shield, or force barrier.
An armor rating buff a no brainer really, better survivorbility is good news to all damage and healer classes.
General speed buff, 20% more movement speed.
AoEs do X amount more damage.
Scorpio finds the starforge, becomes an immortal AI god, and gets worshiped by Ewoks.

You will not need unassembled components in 6.0, feel free to spend them. Most likely they will be converted to credits with Onslaught's launch.

Hi Eric,

Do you have an idea of what the Conversion rate to credits would be?

Eric, does this mean an end to Galactic Command? Should we be grinding those out for the achievements/schematics now?

Self-evidently, GC (in the form we see it now) is no more with 6.0. It's the progression system for level 70s to gear up (eventually, if you bother with it) *while stuck at level 70*. There will be something else for gearing at level 75 after the release of 6.0.

And that reminds me, I must crank on with my "all eight to CR300" achievement. (currently 3/8 done).

Like usual I wouldn't expect it to be a great conversion rate. We would encourage you to spend them and not rely on a big payoff from them or anything.

Same as above. It is a fair assumption that the currency you use to acquire gear now is not going to work in Onslaught. We'll be talking in more detail about how acquisition will work in the coming weeks.

If you're throwing everything we're doing currently away, then why should we continue to pay y'all in the meantime? Every time y'all get 'new ideas', do you think its actually 'fun' rebuilding what you've taken away? It isn't.
