I don't think so.

The grade 47 Magenta Crystal needed the Refreshed and Sustained Tat buff, then the Orokeet (later put into the game) once again required the same buff. If the buff idea had been scrapped, we'd still be wandering around with little eggs.

I wouldn't be so quick to cross things out, especially the Ice Thinner, since it is very related to where and what we are looking for. The MGSS grapple node things are really easy to spot tho, and I'm sure if there was a visible one on Hoth, one of us would have seen it for sure, so I'd say thats a no-go.

Yes, and the Tattoine moisture buff 'was only' used to get the magenta crystal pre 1.2. Now it's also used for the orobird. Bioware has and will continue to use existing items/areas/whatever for multiple things.

Also, I seem to recall when I first landed on Hoth with a Toon I got an item that 'protected from environmental issues' or something. It was snow-gear of some sort. I had never known what it did, and sold it soon after, entirely forget the name as well. Does anyone remember this item, or know what its used for? (Was a long time back so I apologize if it was just some buff or something, but I just remembered about it).

If it does protect against weather conditions, could it protect from highmount ridge debuff/some exhaustion zones? Cause that would be a huge stepping stone.

I doubt this is involved, because you can only get this item once. They would not make the tauntaun require some kind of unique item which anyone who has leveled past Hoth has possible (even probably) already used.

If I remember correctly it was just a stim pack that increased your elemental damage resistance.

The MGGS is used resp. usable in several places. There is another place on Alderaan where it can be used and there is a place on the fleet station where it can be used. It seems pretty versatile, so while I wouldn't cross out anything in general, I especially wouldn't want to cross out this particular item.
