Would be awesome if the Devs combed through these types of threads and found some cool ideas for puzzles later on in the game.
No promises... but we're always watching!

Here I go, killing your buzz again....

'Queen of Sands' is indeed not in-game... yet. I would venture a guess that you discovered that boss through a datamining site. As a general hint, do not assume everything you read on those sites is currently in-game, especially if there do not seem to be any quests linked to the item.

Again, confirmed by development - 'Queen of Sands' will make an appearance eventually, but we cannot confirm exactly when or how at this point.

Buzzkill!

In all seriousness though, thank you for telling us this as well. It will save many pointless hour of searching for no reason. Only one thing to ask now. What other mysteries are in game as of now or have we figured them all out

Yes its a buzzkill.But nonetheless i appreciate u replying to my post and confirming that it is not ingame yet.I know it will spare some the time of searching for yet again something that isnt ingame yet.

On another note.Some people might say that TOR lacks endgame content.But imo,puzzles like these,and like the +10 datacron and Magenta crystal ARE endgame content.And as far as i know,a type of endgame content no other MMO has.Feeling like a treasure hunter is exciting and a rare adrenaline rush.Keep the puzzles coming

StephenReid, while you are commenting, can you confirm or deny that reverse engineering items that require alien data cubes or biometric crystal alloys for the cybertech earpieces can generate better versions of the item?

You mention datamining sites. These items have better versions on those sites. I CAN reverse engineer them, but I've never learned a better recipe. I've used 12 biometric alloys so far on BoP earpieces with no luck.

Am I wasting my mats? I would really like someone to answer this....

Game's been live for seven weeks. The drama festival over the last day is just the tail end of this situation. If they could discern the legitimacy of that one incident within 24 hours, they were easily capable of figuring it out at any point within the last seven weeks and simply saying so. They didn't do that. They waited until it blew up in their faces, then addressed the problem. They created the situation by not telling anyone that there was no white crystal in the game yet, they compounded the situation by allowing speculation, interest and frenzy to grow about it... and here we are, almost two months later, just now learning what they should have told us in the first week that this thread sat on the first page of the Crew Skills forum, bumped over and over again by players desperate to find that one thing that they wanted most, that lovely, perfect white crystal.

I'm just not cool with that, and I'm not buying the "they were investigating" or "they couldn't mention it yet" reasoning. They knew how hotly many of us were anticipating a white crystal, they had plenty of time to say something before it came to this and they just didn't. Not acceptable.

Wonderful to watch and follow the quest for the white crystal. I'm sorry to see it end so, but it has happened in the end. Thank you Wraith for the great crystal guide.

Did you ever stop to think that today is a Monday and that the devs perhaps do not work on the weekends?

They are doing the best they can. In my opinion, I think they did a GREAT job here. I'm actually from that server and it appears as though his entire guild is defending him. They have been thought of by many to be exploiting the game for a while by duping or other methods. This confirms it in a way.

I find it telling that one can go back through and see every post this guy has posted and notice that he has continuously and continually been venomous to the devs of the game...

then he turns around and exploits it.

Real winner.

Datamining sites dont fictionalize data. It means that it's in the game/developed but rather than releasing it at launch, they've held it back as to justify our sub.

HK droid anyone?
Crafting?
Appearance tabs?
Missing ops?

Really, release the game, then improve it. Dont hold back content and expect applause when its released.
