So, PvP naked until Tuesday and enjoy the breeze, then after maintenance, put on your full set of Partisan. Got it.

If you want the basic info here is a quick synopsis, read on for the full debrief:

TLDR: Going into a Warzone completely naked will now be worse than wearing gear. War Hero and Elite War Hero gear is viable again.


Our current plan is that you will see all of these changes after our scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, April 16th. Note that these changes are NOT to address the time to kill issues. We are still actively investigating that and will get back to you as soon as we have more information.

You do realize that you have been selling +41 expertise crystal on GTN too, to people in levels 10-49? There are WAY MORE people than just the ones using wh/ewh who have these crystals, and now you tell things some people have bought with REAL MONEY are a disadvantage? Couldn't you give us an option to corvert our crystals to endurance/critical rating/power ones of the same colour? I just want to keep my level 27 operative shooting pink bullets without buying huge amount of cartel market items/buying one from the GTN for over 100k.

Oh and by the way, I hope you have removed those items from cartel market.

Well, it isn't exactly obvious. I wasn't sure if they fixed naked right off the bat (today/now) and will get the rest of the stuff on Tuesday or all of it was being done on Tuesday.

I'll do my laundry when I get home so at least I'll have pants if I need to wear them or not.

In typical BW fashion,
"if you didn't remove the mods from the original set"


I would please like Eric to tell us otherwise, but I am 99% sure, only non-moddable pieces will be changed....

It does seem fair to add a line of crystals to the PvP vendors that will give you exactly one crystal of any other stat, of the same color, in exchange for one Expertise crystal. The crystal you receive should be BoP, of course. This would not introduce any new crystals into the game or affect the larger market in any way, but it would let people who had the rug yanked out from under them after buying Expertise crystals trade them in for something they can use under the new system, without giving up the color they had. The "exchange program" should cover all crystals currently in game that have +41 Expertise as their stat, regardless of the source.

It was obvious after reading the entire post, however obviously not for some

Tuesday? Good grief, you can really see what kind of priority PvP has in SWTOR.

Shame it wasn't tied to the cartel market somehow. Hotfix in 20 minutes HO!
