Hey folks,

This week I learned about some incorrect information that went out on our flash drives which we gave away during the LA Cantina Tour. I wanted to highlight what was incorrect and to provide the correct information, including some updated screenshots with the correct rewards!

The first thing which led to some confusion is that the new event coming around Game Update 2.3 is called Bounty Contract Week, not the Bounty Hunter event. We didn't mean to have the added confusion around implying an event was named after a class. Bruce gave a little bit of information on the event, here.

Now, onto the screenshots! First was some incorrect armor screenshots. There were two new armor sets shown. One of them is not actually present in the game in that color variation which you can see here. The other, is in the game in 2.3, but it is a part of the new daily hub reputation not the Bounty Contract Week rep. You can see that armor here. As a note, this armor has changed slightly. The colors are a bit more vibrant and it has some new "attachments," I am going to work on getting an updated screenshot.

What you will want to see are the new armor sets that are rewards for the Bounty Contract Week Rep! Here they are, reward 1, reward 2.

We sincerely apologize for any confusion.

Cool though I'd love to see more rewards than just those armor models.

Armor 1

Armor 2

Armor 3

Armor 4

Armor 5

Would all look great as adaptive gear.

Eric.
Can you also comment if the reward weapon is going to be a main hand only weapon?
If it is, it's a waste. As mercs and gunslingers want matching guns that can be duel wielded. It needs to be a main hand/off hand weapon.

Those armor sets do look much better than those that were previewed on the flash drive (but still would have rather seen a T-visor Mandalorian helmet, not the bug eyed one ,on #1).

Thanks.

All of those sets are already in the game. They should never be re-used as a reward armor set.

I implore you to please add legacy 'knife' 'scattergun' 'shield' 'generator' and 'focus' with this event.

Its quite a pain currently that only Mara/Sentinel can use both weapons legacy (discounting Mercs and Slingers due to the opposite factions class having a different weapon system.)

+ That gear looks great, nice to see some of the old set styles (columi etc..) coming back in along with some hopefully new ones.

First one looks great.

Btw, what's up with the traditional Jedi robes? D:

It's kinda lame that recolors are being added as new daily hub rewards, though. Helmet might be new but the rest... Awfuly familiar.

But are all of those sets presently available? From little I've been able to find most of the armor models I linked were from previous tiers of raiding / pvp gear. None of which is presently available or adaptive.

I'm fine with the armor models not being rewards for the event, so long as they are available.

Great update, love the armors. Hoping this is a cool new story-driven event. Looks totally slick so far.

Please, please make sure to add Vogga the Hutt to the event if Hutts are involved. I always liked him, and Hutts can live several hundred years, and he wasnt killed by GOTO or anyone else in the events of KoTORII so he could still be alive and dealing out there.
