-Rakgoul event will be returning! (not from Q&A, but from chatting with Blaine)
-Ready check will be here sooner than you think
-User created mods not anytime soon
-Moving bound, empty armor shells to other legacy toons is something interesting (see how they’re trying not to say soon?)
-Why does the warrior suck? (everyone laughed)
-Companions wearing event gear is a go
-No comment on Tauntaun mounts
-Everyone laughed when Damion failed to see the connection between “Tron” armor and Disney buying LucasArts
-Gray alignment coming soonish (does this count as soon?)
-Having a third faction would break stuff
-Duel spec is high on the wall of crazy (yes, it’s still on the wall of crazy)
-Armor dyes soon? Answer: That’d be really neat wouldn’t it? (yes, Damion answered a questions with a question)
-One-click switch from PvE gear to PvP is on wall of crazy
-Damion thinks Gault is the funniest companion
-There are plans to use social media etc. to stream community content (details were vague)
-What’s up with escape pod doors on ships? To let hijacked players escape!
-Appearance tabs are not in immediate future
-One free transfer when transfers go live? They know how important character transfers are
-Concerns for PvP? Go to PTS and test warzones!
-More Huttball maps? There are other priorities at the moment (still not sure what this means)
-I asked if datacrons/codex etc. will be added to legacy in future. Datacrons no, achievements yes.
-Will there be bikinis for men? (A good chuckle was had by all)
-Damion commented that if a new player completes the first planet they usually stick around

No-one asked about future expansions, continuing story or the secret space project?

I was suprised to see no mention of a same sex companion storyline like uhh chosing a companion between a guy or girl, with both having the option of going in that... direction...


Sad to see no mention of being able to get new ships, Trade my jedi fish shaped ship for the XS FREIGHTER any day of the week, even if it means selling Kira to the hutts.

Saddder to see they didn't even ask them if there was any luck with the hood toggle, even if their attempts at the issue. Because personally, I wish we had one so I can get rid of one of the two on Revan's Chestplate. xD

saddder-er to see no question about getting more different shades of hues for color crystals. Love a Dark Blue Dark Red, Bright Orange, Banana Yellow... ya know Real possible crystal colors. Dual Cores are cool, but I would like the variety.

I have to wonder why they even do such an event if they are going to remain as vague on answers as they already do on the internets.

At least the utter non-answer comment about transfers implies its actually at least still coming. Eventually. In some form. *sigh*

I really hate how tight lipped Bioware have become. Its one thing to not want to promise what you might not be able to deliver, its another to not even want to talk about what they are at least trying to accomplish. If we could just know how close we are to things like transfers (just the example im using, replace it with whatever you want), and what the issues are thats holding them back, it would go a long way to give people more patience and trust in the company. Instead we get a blank wall response to virtually everything. "Keep paying, keep playing, don't worry about the future."

Deciding a NO to legacy wide datacrons is 100% proof of sadistic developers.

-Armor dyes soon? Answer: That’d be really neat wouldn’t it? no damion, it would be really neat if this game had developers who actually developed things instead of just acting like a arrogant ***...

Damion Schubert is the worst thing to ever happen to this game he litteraly said the same thing about guild ships and pazzak. maybe he should get on developing these things instead of stupid speeders and the super awesome inventory sorting that is the most awesome thing ever and obvious why it took a year to get in to the game and was a huge priority over clipping issues, terraign bugs, companion lightsabers, line of sight bugs, respawn bugs... just add armor dyes now to the list to the things the community constantly asks about and wants that bioware austin will just ignore. but hey, it would be cool wouldnt it...
Just go riding right by me on the crest of the new wave
