I notice the vendor for Grand Acquisition Race is only selling weapons useable by Agent/Trooper, have they announced anything where they may be adding melee/blaster pistols to the vendor? Or maybe even some color crystals, or anything worth having? Dont get me wrong sweet quest, just curious to see if anyone has heard about the vendor at all.

Nothing on the dev tracker, though you're not the only one who's noticed I'm sure.

It is a little weird. I would expect them to add to it, but then again I don't see why they would launch the vendor without all of the items.

Yeah i have a few 50's luckily one is an operative, and she isnt super geared yet. Only battlemaster. However the bow caster ended up being only 4 points lower than battle master blaster so i got one good thing. I just feel like they wouldnt neglect over half of the users. Im thinking/hoping they add something bigggg. They added stuff for rakghoul event didnt they?


a white/black color crystal would be sweet to add ( bioware )

It's the strangest design decision I've ever seen in an MMO. You hype up an event. People wait for it for months. It arrives. The rewards are ONLY for a small % of the playerbase? My mind is well and truly boggled!

3/8 classes benefit from this event.

Does no one else realize that this is a Bind on Legacy weapon? You can smuggle color crystals across sides now. Purple lightsaber on pubs, blue-black on imp, etc.

They didn't hype this thing for months. The put out a video like two days ago.

Not that I recall, no. Could be wrong but I don't remember anything being added after day 1.

The rewards for this event are absurd, and I don't just refer to the lack of melee & blasters. And if I finish it I get a new title (woo.hoo.) and an albino version of the free transfer pet? Meh. I'll just snag some sand people gear for companions and be done with it (for some reason the idea of Talos in the full set is bemusing).

But on topic- this lack of weapons for anyone outside a select couple classes is baffling how many threads on this is it going to take to get some kind of response one way or the other? Never mind, don't answer that lol...
