I was surprised and pleased to see this--I reported it about a year ago, and while I doubt I was the only one, it was an obscure case that I can't imagine got a huge number of reports.

But yes, it comes after you marry Vector, and like most romances, he sends a couple pieces of mail after the fact, which includes a bit of conversation and a gift. In the mail, he mentions having a conversation with, I guess I'll be sensitive to spoilers and just say the final tanking companion the Agent gets.

The problem is that if you have affection maxed early enough, you can trigger all of his conversation quests right after you complete Chapter 2. So you can get mail from him where he talks about an on-ship conversation with that last companion even before you ever set foot on the first Chapter 3 planet of Belsavis.

"Players now receive a warning when extracting a modification that will bind the item to the player."

Does this mean that we can't rip the mods out of end game armor and mail them to fresh 50-55 alts?

Pre-Game Update 2.0 gear that had the same set bonuses (or affected the same abilities) as Post-2.0 gear no longer stacks the bonus effects. The first set bonus placed on the character will take affect but the second one will not.
So with this change, and its direct affect on the DPS of Commandos and Mercs (gunnery and arsenal). Can we get the old 4 piece bonus put back on the Eliminator gear? Because the only reason Commandos and Mercs were using the old/new 2 piece bonus and stacking them, is because the new 4 piece set bonus, well, sucks.

It was a change that was never asked for, and change that was never even documented in the 2.0 patch notes, and a change that received a lot of negative feedback on the 2.0 pts, which was never answered as to why it was changed in the first place.

Do I need to throw more money?

The Huttsbane Armor Set is now discounted by 50%. Cost: 450 Cartel Coins

Lol. Probably because nobody requested and nobody bought it. Can we finally get appropriate Star Wars and Jedi outfits?
Well, for me the problem is more with the orange arms. I really like the outfit but very few of my characters look good in orange, not my favorite color. Unfortunately it is part of the armor that cannot be changed when you apply dye.

+1 This change means we are falling further behind in DPS. We barely do 3k on the dummy as it is, very bad change.
Please bring back the old set bonus.

Nice work patching in the middle of prime time on a night that lots of APAC guilds raid. With minimal notice. Whatever happened to a regular patch schedule on Tuesdays?

I note there are no major bug fixes in the notes that have to be applied ASAP so really all you're doing is making people annoyed. I appreciate it's a big patch but cmon guys, this isn't rocket science. Pick a schedule and stick to it except for out of band emergency patches.
