Sounds like it should had been out before 1.3 and not after, now it is just a waste of time... hope the next podcast will be better again (or at least not feel like it only contains old news).

I heard the Devs encouraging the players to go into the PTS to test the 1.3 features? I think you guys release this Podcast a bit late, I know it can take some time to get things "approved" in big companies, but try to release the podcast a bit sooner next time.

-_- Anyway, moving on....

I agree with everyone else. It would have been nice to release this before the 1.3 patch dropped, maybe the week before. That said, I always enjoy hearing what goes on behind the scenes for the game. I also, can understand that there is a lot going on, but, maybe a more concrete release schedule would be a good idea?

Best question would have been "how much delay is there with the art pipeline for what the operations design team wants to do?"
Yo. Droid companions need an operations vendor, too. My extra coms have to go somewhere, and I'd prefer SCORPIO to Kaliyo.

One thing about the legacy perks:

They do not allow you to level a character the way a player wants to at all. The XP perks certainly smooth a bit the levlling curve but certainly not enough to make it so you can level doing only one type of content, and do it as fast as you would by doing the rest too.

BTW it has to be mentioned that while we can now buy 30% Xp increase in WZ it has been reduced by much more in 1.2. So we're not even coming close to where we where before.

Now regarding the Operations and Flashpoint when are we getting something that feels more heroic: like going away from huge boss being ganked by many players? Or tank and spank mechanisms?

The state of end game raiding for your selected few guilds that push through progression is pretty bleak because there is a lack of difficult content we can cut our teeth into. Guilds are falling apart as people move onto other games, with several top tier guilds quitting completely and went back to WoW.

If we have to continue to wait months for new content, or even Nightmare content, more guilds will fall to the wayside and you will be left with the handful of guilds to test this content, and a majority of lesser skilled players that will complain the content is too hard. Sorry if anyone finds this offensive, I call it as I see it. All the server merges did was delay the exodus for a little while longer, but unless something is released "soon", or a timeline is released, it will continue to be the downfall in end game raiding.
I agree with this somewhat, seeing as we've had a number of raiders drop off over the past month or so. But I do think Nightmare is the solution and a clearer distinction between gear stats. Also not allowing the same tier of gear from non-raid content as the hardest raid currently in the game would help, since Black Hole Comms have just made the gearing process considerably shorter (I built my entire off-spec set and half of my main spec set with BH comms, sans mainhand). As raid leader I've been running HM EC for the past two months and taken little loot, and that's fine for me, but for most it's about the shiny loot and if it's either not shiny due to being a small upgrade, or the time it takes to get all of it is too short, then problems arise.

I always wondered what happened to Musco. It was all downhill for Torocast after he left... Can't wait to give the podcast a listen after I get off work.
