"But it's fun."
"They will patch it, you just have to wait."
"But the game is still new!"

Pick one generic excuse. This is just terrible game design or pure laziness.
R2-D2 is the most underrated Star Wars character.

Main set is the same but the offset pieces are different. Normal drops Tionese offset, HM drops Columi offset, NMM drops Rakata offset.

Not that it matters since you can get everything rakata offset without touching a NMM. (Roll Armor/Synth get bracers/belt, roll artifice get relics, do dailies and get ear/implants)

Personally I think it's a good design decision, people can do Nightmare modes for bragging rights.

That said, there does need to be some kind of special title or mount, something immediately visible, so you can show off a bit.

There is a special title and a special mount >_> At least from Soa in EV.

Oh, just wait.

Most surprising are the upcoming changes to operations. In the past, larger populated raids were seen as the pinnacle in MMOs. However, according to Gabe Amatangelo:
Quote:
It is intended that 16 player mode is slightly easier than 8 player mode due to the fact that getting and coordinating 16 players is a larger hurdle in and of itself.
This indicates that smaller raids will be the new benchmark for world firsts in SWTOR.

There you go. I haven't done any ops yet, but I'm a raider in many other games, so I wasn't sure.

I believe the term you are looking for is "bad" and not "terrible"
Terrible is incredibly hyperbolic given the circumstances
is a gunslinger

I disagree, there should be areas of the game which are very hard to reach / complete / achieve. Nmm needs to be harder and it should have its own tier of gear.

This game might aswell be called Star Wars the old communist republic.
