What I'd (personally) like to know is how they are able to determine who got gear and who didn't. I think that most people would be extremely frustrated if they patched it for everyone and just gave us all a gear bundle - as some who have HK-51 will get double gear.

I ask this mainly because myself and 4 other guild members ran these quests and obtained our HK-51. 2 out of 4 of us got gear. What concerns me is moving forward if this is something that will affect us in other missions/etc as it was clear we all went through the exact same steps together, and the result was different for each of us.

Has SWTOR determined if maybe this is something that could be chronic for future releases? Was it a random roll of the dice if you got the gear - as you picked it up? It would be nice to see some semblance of direction on this, even if we can't get an idea of when the fix will be issued. I think the mob mentality is satiated when we can apply reassurances that this was a random drop issue and not based on specific accounts - that way we can continue to game without the worry of furthering our SOLness for other items.

How long? Who knows? If it were a matter of an "ALL Hks not having gear" bug, it'd probably be easy to find and fix. But there are several variations of HKs coming into play (naked, geared w/o mods, geared w/ blue mods, geared w/epic mods) and they need to figure out why and go from there.

Not good enough? Then go back to God-Mode "My Care Bear Island", where you get everything you want, whenever you want.

Exactly why i said send the gear out to EVERYONE on the server , alts included etc , just make it 1c to vendor so its not game breaking on the economy

Customer service.... that's what they call this...I asked about the gear, if they could just send it to me or if i could just Redo the quest i continued to ask if my time wasted would be compensated for or if my credits spent on the quest would be refunded because of not being able to use the stupid thing without sinking at least a million credits to fully gear the droid myself. Read the little note at the bottom about what they claim to be their specialism then everyone please take a moment to lol with me... this is sad. they shoved all my questions out the door and gave me a broad statement that i imagine EVERYONE who drops a ticket in will be sent. I MISS SWG. Sony come back to us!

Yeah I got the st00pid M0-T0 reply. Hey BW..... that does not cut it!

There is more to customer service than talking at us with some lame patch response.

Mail everyone who sent you the bug report the gear, making it BOP, requires HK-51, worth nothing so the only use it has is to be on a HK-51 droid.

Then move on to the dozens of other glitches in the game, fix the resolve system in PVP etc.!

Hi all,

Just for the record, I do have a Warrior named Entrox, but as our group needed a healer I completed the quests with my Sorcerer and received a fully loaded HK-51, but the Warrior Hardax in the group received an empty HK-51.

I did end up running the story again with my Jugg Entrox, right through to The Foundry HM mission, but after reading this thread since it started, thought I would use my Cartel coins to unlock a Legacy bound HK-51 to see how he rolled off the production line.... Sought of hoping that maybe, a legacy bound HK-51 might be immune...

Long story short, my Warrior HK-51 is empty. But the 3 other lvl 50 HK's I have also unlocked for some of my Imp and Rep toons are fulled loaded.

All in all though, I am right chuffed to have HK-51 on the scene so I will now get on and craft my Warrior's HK-51 parts whlst waiting for the patch.

This is ********. That quest isn't exactly a short one. The small amount of time I DO get to play, I dont want to spend it doing buggy quests. Every one affected by this bug should get compensation, to say the least. This almost makes me want to quit playing the game all together. Fix it.
