I agree it should be more than 35 BH Comms, but not 350. Maybe 45-50 is reasonable for cost/increased stats.
yeah, honestly, with the amount of BH comms being dropped everywhere now, even 70 for one would be fine, that way it's still 10 more than the most expensive BH piece and basically double the price of the BH implants, but still reasonable. After all, once you're full BH geared, there's not really much else to spend BH comms on, unless you're gearing alts or gearing pets. 350 is a joke though, it really is, it's almost as bad as the 2000 fleet comms for the inheritence legacy stuff on the fleet vendor, which is still the biggest price derp in the game, imho.
Lightsabers, Force Choke, Force Lightning, Jedi Mind Tricks, what else could you want from an MMO? There may be other MMOs out there, but do they have Lightsabers?....Do They?

Once you're in the hole, what's a few more feet?

Why has Bioware not replied to this thread and issue yet?!

Really funny bit is that for some specs not one of the 3 variants is an upgrade over the black hole implants (base stat+power > base stat+crit/acc/ala).

BiS implays were way too easy to obtain pre 1.4. Now you actually need to put in a lot of effort to farm it. I agree on 350 BH comms being a bit over the top, but they shouldn't be cheap. 200-250 would've been fine.

To clear up some of the confusion we've seen in this thread, we asked George to clarify his answer. He was referring specifically to the relics that cost 400 Daily Commendations, which have been removed and are not available in 1.4. The Hazmat Implants, on the other hand, are priced as intended. I hope this helps clear up the confusion about the answer!

It clears it up, but it doesn't make it better. 350 Coms for a very minimal stat increase are really no incentive to grind them, and having them is still nothing special if that was the intention behind this strange price. It's only a grind.

Completely agreed. It's a bullsh*t price that doesn't reflect the value of the item. If it was awesome, an honest to goodness upgrade, then yeah, maybe that kind of inflation makes sense, but this is ridiculous.

Your itemiztion guys are doing a piss poor job. I have no problem grinding out comms for stuff that actually is worth the grind. This? This is just busy work and poor design.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
