So, there is something that confuses me...

For TfB NiM it states:

Conquer these nightmarish enemies for a chance to earn a brand new set of Kell Dragon gear, the most powerful PvE gear available, as well as an exclusive “Helix Hyperpod” Vehicle!

and for S&V NiM:

Defeating the Hutt Cartel’s ruthless mercenaries and beasts will require more coordination than ever before. Put your endurance to the ultimate test in this nightmarish battle. Rewards include a new “Titan 6 Containment Mode” Vehicle and the elite Kell Dragon gear set!

So, there are 2 sets coming? Kell Dragon and Elite Kell Dragon? If that's true, it makes actually no sense to run TfB anymore once S&V NiM is available. Why should you go and farm a lower level gear set?!

Any word on this, BW?

You've misread it. If the 'elite' were part of the name of the gear it would be capitalized In this case it's not, meaning that it is being used as a description rather than the name of the gear. The gear sets dropped from the two operations are the same.

Well yeh, still confusing when you remember that we used to have warhero and elite warhero. :P

Thanks for clearing this up though!

Since both of the game updates for nightmare mode (2.2 and 2.2.2.) are built around the new content being the new tier of gear. Can you please make it so nightmare mode TFB and S&V have their own lockouts and do not share one with hard mode anymore.

Because as you put it:
Quote:
Rally your guild and prepare to progress through a total of twelve nightmarishly challenging bosses at Level 55 and earn great rewards! This update will be released in two parts, starting with Terror From Beyond
There is no reason that an update that exciting and nightmarish and offering great rewards should share a lockout with hard mode.

Any chance, for once, that when you introduce a new operation, we have the Storymode, Hardmode and Nightmare mode added together? Adding nightmare mode in a later patch and calling that a content patch is pretty retarded

They usually don't post metrics that aren't conducive to supporting the game, so probably not.

The only data we have is that 38% of players have ever played an operation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEYp0pZd2ag#t=3m19s), though the data is a little old.
But it seems like the percentage of HM/NiM is a little higher than progression players would like.

Yes, and that is data pulled from 1.1... I should hope that more of the population has been exposed to ops by now, and that data is basically worthless at this point.
