This was posted in another forum.
There was a TON of great information, but this stood out.

Quote:
Every member of your ops group requires an item that costs 30 Daily Commendations called "Rakata Alphawave Inhibitor" (Buff Mental Protection), which is a 4 hour flask type buff that is required for the final boss of Explosive Conflict. You'll need this weekly to beat the boss as it protects you from "mental attacks"
It's hard enough right now to get people in our guild online outside of raid nights.. (Yes, I know, its a problem for us. It's hard to fix. We are trying.) Anyways, asking our members to farm 2 full days of dailies just to buy a buff for a 4hour window to kill the last boss? That's insanity. I am HOPING this is just a PTS ruse to get people to test the dailies, and it doesn't make it to live.

Otherwise.... this is a fail of the highest order. I can't imagine many guilds putting up with something like this. If you changed some of the dailies to repeatable (unlimited per day) so a handful of people could farm the items, that'd be acceptable... but forcing 8 to 16 people to all do their dailies 2 days a week OUTSIDE of raid days?... come on now.

EDIT: I am praying the person who posted the information was trolling, but the post was so detailed it's hard for me to believe that this isn't legit. Feel free to confirm or deny if you happen to know any information.

If this is true, I really don't see anything wrong with it. Sort of a throwback to the world boss buffs (ony/DM tribute/blasted land foods) of Vanilla WoW. At least I'll spend more time in this game than the 2-3 hours it takes to clear every boss on 16 NiM per week. =\

There is a reason WoW did away with that sort of requirement for raiding and moved to freely craftable and tradeable consumption items as the out-of-raid "requirement" for raiding.

And its two days just for 4 hours of trys. So your getting a max on how much you can try the boss a week. Granted 12 hours is a lot of time but thats only if your raid puts in the time....


And whos to say the dailies wont be broken. Seems to be a popular thing with them.

I don't have a problem with requiring people to run dailies. I feel like I have to run them anyway to support my crafting missions. If you get a good group, you can complete all of them in about an hour (both planets). And this way the fresh 50s will have an easier time finding daily groups to run with, which encourages them to invest the effort to get geared up instead of slacking and waiting for a run-thru. It's a win-win as far as I'm concerned.

There's a big difference between running them to fuel crafting, and requireing 8 or 16members to ALL do them to have a 4hour window to clear content, that cannot be cleared any other way. Not everyone has 2 spare nights a week they can add on top of raiding to farm these things, which is why it'd be nice if they weren't BoP so other people could help the process.

Please tell me this isn't serious. This is horse**** if they do this. Man, i still planned on playing for a long time, but if you "require" me to do those boring dailies each week. Hell no, I ain't staying.

Not only is this a ridiclous way to make ppl do daily's.
I heard from someone who been at the guild summit the new Ops only has 4 bosses.

Im afraid its a done deal then, and with that i mean the game.
No real end game in SWTOR.

Sad story.
Do that which you fear most, and you will find
the courage which you seek

This is not a good idea. I hope this does not make it off the PTR.
