I hate PvE farming, will do an instance once or twice a week and rest of the time doing PvP and playing alts. I need x3 Biometric Crystal Alloy to craft Rakata Biochem items and it is driving me up the wall doing all the PvE HM farming for a CHANCE!!! Luck based Asian MMO crap...Remove luck please it destroys gaming experience!

Make them traded or purchasable for PvP Commendations or better yet A GUARANTEED WIN FOR EACH PLAYER with daily or weekly!

Luck..luck..luck so much of that crap in this game .... GOD did NCsoft make this game?

Actually, in a typical Asian MMO, that alloy wouldn't drop 100% of the time.

The boss that drops it wouldn't spawn 100% of the time.

The dungeons would have more trash mobs.

The bosses would have harder hitting abilities, shorter enrage timers, and more punishing enrages at that.

You wouldn't have even hit 50 in the first month.

Your crafting skill would still be around the 200 mark rather than maxed out.

And that's just a few things.

he wants 1 stim, 1 medpack, and 1 adrenal
1+1+1 = 3

They do really need to make these able to be traded and sold. They also need to add a 25% chance for them to drop from the PVP daily quest. You would get a 25% chance of getting one in a PVE zone you ran for your daily from the boss.

They really need to add another option to get the Alloys, be it lots of commendations, daily tokens, whatever. Having to do PVE just to get the chance at something you NEED for your crewskill is frakked up.
We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

you are not FORCED to PVE, you choose too, you are not FORCED to use stims in PVP, buy the ones from the GTM they are better than Rakata anyway, and the Rakata medipac is crap, use your PVP BADGES to buy PVP MEDIPAC.. quite simple

I also think you should be able to purchase crystal alloy with centurion comms since after you gain all of your champ/centurion gear, centurion comms are useless before valor 60. I am not yet valor 60 but i have most of my champion gear, so i can only get champion gear bags, therefore i have a lot of centurion comms that i do not need.

Why cant all the pvp ppl accept how the game is made? ppl who like PVE over PVP i ralrely see whining about how hard it is to get all Rakata-loot, but if u rly like pvp you just haveto grind WZ and illum to get battlemaster gear.

Isnt there 3 more ppl to help you in the FP?
taral V and Kaon under siege is done under an hour, sure u can spare an hour or 2 from pvp farming.
