Hello again everyone,

I've got some updates for you!

We do indeed. There is full solution going into place for this to fix those who have already completed the mission as well as to fix it for folks in the future. With tomorrow's Game Update, we'll be starting the implementation. Here's the corresponding patch note:

• Players who have completed Uprooting the Last Seed (Republic)/The Alchemy of Evil (Imperial) can now dig up both the Star Forager and Dreadseed armor pieces from the treasure dig sites, regardless of the Light or Dark Side choice made during the mission.

Additionally, the current plan is to finish the solution in Game Update 2.2.2. We'll be updating the mission itself and adding the ability to dig up each of the Titles as consumables. If the time frame changes, I'll post to let you know, as the testing for the 2.2.2 changes has not been completed.

The primary reason this specific problem isn't listed is because there are a series of things that combine to cause issues with this mission in relation to the alignment choice, group status, and mission rewards. If a bug is sufficiently complicated such that the conditions and resulting behavior are confusing and/or inconsistent, the communication around it is better suited in threads such as these.

Thanks again to everyone who reported this issue and for your patience while we get it fixed for you!

I don't know how others feel about this but I really don't want the ability to dig up BOTH sets on the same character. That will make it take even longer to get a full set of either armor variety. This seems to be a poor solution IMO.

Come on. You can do better than that! Just wait and fix it right please.

Same here, but it's too late for that now
So yeah, suck it up, because it was too easy to find your whole set already

First off, thanks Amber for the update. Very much appreciate you keeping us informed, rather than just letting us figure out the change for ourselves tomorrow.

Second, I'll add my voice to the others in pointing out that this "solution" is mediocre at best, as it takes an already-slim chance at loot and makes it even slimmer, thereby substantially increasing the time needed to assemble a complete set of gear.

Please pass on our concerns to the team designing this fix, so that it can hopefully be addressed in the future. It is, nevertheless, understood that this was a bit of an emergency fix to stop any further damage from being done.

Heh. Yeah. At this point they should just dump the sets into the Cartel Market for sale like everything else, cut the heroic from the questline, and be done with it.

Did you up the chance to find armor pieces as well? If I now have a chance to pull armor that I don't want along with armor that I do want it would sure be nice if I saw them more often.

Yeah, it's definitely been too easy. After getting seven belts on Makeb I gave up trying to finish my set. This change will definitely make searching for that last piece a more enjoyable process.

Hello Amber,
I just wrote a similar posting a couple of days ago over there in the german forums, I will tell it here once again. The Title was the most important thing to me as reward for finishing this quest. My char is a full light side played jedi, so I also gave the light answer in this quest, and what did I earn? Yes, the dreadseed-title. This is annoying in first. Now the solution for me to get the right title (I just want to use it, it has a bit mystic style in german translation) is to dig at least hours and hours for broken bones, rusty cans and at least some mobs to receive the title I choosed finishing the quest? This sounds like a really bad joke, sorry.
I hope, you and your team will find another solution for those people who has already earned the wrong title. The armor-set as a abylity to dig for is okay for me, perhaps I will do this when I have some spare time. To do this with the title by the small dropping rate in the digging grounds is really like someone wrote before like the middle finger.
I'm sorry, if I lost my politeness, but let me tell you one more thing: I was just a small tick away from kicking the char after this happend to me and after the first very negativ answer I received from the ingame support. This was the first time I lost all the fun the game gave to me all the time before, and I was a total noob to this genre of games until I started up with SWTOR.

Best regards from Germany!

I might be (slightly) off topic since this started as a thread that was supposed to be about the Heroic 4, but just in case anyone's wondering I managed to find both Headpieces (Dreadseed and Star Forager) with my Operative that had chosen the Dark Side option at the end of the Heroic.

I got both headpieces and the area didn't get depleted, although I later found a purple 28 enhancement, after which it did.

Personally, I don't think a 28 enhancement or anything like that should deplete the area, but at least you can find your armor pieces from both sets.

Thank you for this, Amber.
I've been trying to find a group for Alchemy of Evil with another toon for a few days now with no luck, just so that I could get the Star Forager armor.

This fix only makes it harder to get the set you want. I now have 4 star forrager pieces that I don't want from the seeker droid. Haven't gotten any Dread Seed. This thing takes way to long, even with the consumables you mostly get green gear for "something interesting" Why not make the rare 'special armor find' a box with a choice of either the star forrager or dread seed piece? At least that wouldn't further reduce you chances post fix.
