I did [Heroic 4] The Alchemy of Evil awhile ago and in order to do Dark side you had to click the alter a 2nd time. I did this and got the Dreadseed Armor. Today I did [Heroic 4] The Alchemy of Evil again for Star Forager’s Jacket. The guy that won the roll for choice was Darkside and now I have another Dreadseed Armor. Is this a bug or is this just huge FU to people. That not only do you have to find 3 more people to do this but also find 3 people of the same light/dark. This is ***** up that I stuck with another Dreadseed Armor. Took me a week to find this group. By the time I was doing this chain again its going take me month to find 3 or light side people to get my armor.

Not sure why that happened to you, but I did it with guild mates and two of us went LS other two DS and we all got are respective selections for our choice.

If you want to get the Star Foragers Jacket you can not click on the altar.

Clicking on the altar is the Darkside choice, not what option you pick in the cutscene.

I think this was changed last patch.

This happened to me, only the opposite. I was in a group with 2 lightsiders that won the roll. I picked DS and clicked the altar, but when we went back to the NPC on Coruscant we all got the lightside item/title.

I'm not sure what's causing it, the only thing I can guess is the separate instance for turning in the quest (not the instance for the heroic) whoever is the owner of that instance you get their choice if you participate in that conversation. The only way I could test it is to rerun it on a different char and I don't know when I'll get the chance again.

For what it's worth I tried sending in a ticket to see if they could switch the item/title and they were not able to. The problem is if they did the quest still flagged me for completing it a certain way, and that outcome dictates which other pieces you dig up on various planets. For instance, even if they gave me the Dreadseed chest, when I went to dig up bracers I would get Star Forager ones.

it worked form my group, one went LS, the other 3 DS and we all got what we desired..... I wold have been mad if it did not, its a long path getting through the missions, to get to the end, you want your reward. Sorry to hear it OP.

And you didn't post this thread in the bug report forum because you don't really want BW to look at this?

After killing Lord Tagriss the quest says recover the last seed. Which means clicking the alter. Which is what I did. I got 100 Lightside points for completing it and the darkside choice armor. Thanks for comment.

Posting in the Bug area or submit a ticket DOES NOTHING. You get a copy and pasted message saying we are looking into and can not give you any further information. Its not hard to see hey he made the light side choice but was given dark side armor. Mail him the light side armor and look into the issue. CS that deals with bugs is either a bot with an auto reply or someone copying and pasting a reply. None of the bugs I have report have I ever gotten a real reply. This is why none of the bugs get fixed. Don't enter them into the system nothing to fix.

The main reason I post here is let people know that is quest is jacked up so they don't waste all that time doing it.

The exact same thing happend to me, only i wanted the Dreadseed but got Star Forager... unbelievably sad because i just spent the two last days doing the Seeker Droid/ Macrobinoculars quest line, which was fun, but in the long run a real pain.

I made one ticket and a bug report ingame, got the generic reply that they were able to do nothing on the ticket, still waiting for the bug report to be answered... :/

Man i don't know what to do without Dreadseed armor. It was THE reason for making an ALT.
