Your class role and spec? - Combat Sentinel
Your toggled role (if different)? - current
Current item rating? - 302
Where did you receive the item? - weekly (Light side token vendor) equipment crate
Exactly what item did you receive? - Trishin‘s Resort belt

At least the 1000 tf surprise item from Kai had a tactical for the sentinel, so yay me I guess

And why is the culling blades set not available from the class vendors?!?!

    • Conquest Crates AND renown crates, both all as below
  • Exactly what item did you receive?
    • Out of Band loots: Bolblaster's Generator (something only powertechs have the ability to equip) "Tech Medic" set pieces.... tons of them
    • In Band Loots: "Hunter Killer", just a few
    • absolutely nothing specific to Arsenal, ever.
Addendum to the above, Personalized boss loot in Operations (most recently Eternity Vault SM) is ALSO dropping "Bolblaster's Generator" which is completely unusable by any Mercenary Discipline... it literally cannot be equipped, because only Powertech has the required skill on imperial side.

This has caused a huge imbalance in offhand drops... which reduces the availability of mods (specifically barrels) that can be found/equipped)

Here's a fun one...
BH > Merc > Arsenal 306
Lost Island, MM
I received a blue, static "Baktoid Efficient Cannon" 276

yup that's right, an ASSAULT CANNON, on the imperial side, absurdly below level.. just... why?

Nvm just confirmed the issue doesn't happen.

So, i can say the tooltip on the tank trinket with chance of absorb says it absorbs 1 damage. Maybe something to fix.

New report from the last few days


Your class role and spec?


Arsenal Merc

Your toggled role (if different)?

Arsenal Merc

Current item rating?

Player level 73
IRating 268

Where did you receive the item?

Rishi Flash Point
Personal Conquest Crate

Exactly what item did you receive?

Experimental Ossan Relic of Imperiling Serenity (rating 252). This is a Tank item with shield and defence
Experimental Ossan Relic of the Fortunate Redoubt (iRating 252), this is also shield and defence spec
Masterwork Ancient Relic of Shield Amplification (iRating 258). Also with shield and defence stats.

Can you please fix it so lvl 70-75 characters receive green 268 gear if they are in fact iRated 268. This is a really bad system dropping gear well under you iRating.

Mercs as a class do not have a tank spec. We should never receive any tank gear in any part of the game

Another new report from the last few days


Your class role and spec?


Lightning Sorc

Your toggled role (if different)?

Lightning Sorc

Current item rating?

Player level 75
iRating 306

Where did you receive the item?

Weekly Conquest Crate

Exactly what item did you receive?

Revitalized Mystic’s Headgear (this set bonus is specially for healing Sorc because it’s to reduce the CD of the innervate ability, which is a healing Sorc ability. Lightning spec does not have innervate as an ability

Please, let us know what is happening to address these bugs. Will they be fixed in 6.0.2 or will there be an emergency patch before then?
It is nearly a complete waste of time trying to get drops if they drop the wrong stuff. Which means not playing the class or possibly not playing the game till it’s fixed

Telekinetics Sage, level 75
current
305
weekly guild conquest crate
2x bracers of Revitalized Mystic (as Trixxie stated: telekinetics DON'T HAVE HEALING TRANCE!),
1x feet of Empowered Restorer

and Onderon & Mek-Sha world drops only ever drop Items between 270-276 - so totally useless (except for deconstructing into Tech Frags)

unfortunately I don't see this happening, since 268+ is all min level 75 to use....

which is a problem since level synch severely punishes you for being over content level if you're under 306 irating.

Why can’t it drop 168 gears between lvl 70-74? Also, why not make it so the 252-258 gear starts dropping at lvl 65. It doesn’t matter that it’s high gear now because it’s obsolete and all the content is now capped at planet sink stats.
