... Another brick in the wall ... Oh, wait, wrong movie ...

I'mn more and more beginning to lose respect on Bioware. First, "percepton problems" and "H2F", then Sages not supposed to use the bubble, now this ...

I have no good reputation.
I never will.

Necro-ing this thread because it seems like 3.0 has implemented a use for The Mysterious Ancient Tome. Has anyone else discovered new leads?

What is your basis for saying 3.0 added a use for it?

Overheard from some people that on the 3.0 PTS, there is a Yavin 4 world boss you could summon involving the Tome. But I also heard it was removed to be added in at a later date. Don't know if the Tome is still there as of 3.0.

I have a toon logged out in the room where the tome was, it is no longer in there. If the tome is still in game its been moved elsewhere.

Could it have something to do with this riddle : http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=779801

No-one knows yet what this "complex access card" is for, any why it immediately disappears again after the ordeal. The schematic even gets "back" tto the vendor at one point.
My personal theory is that it has something to do with the smuggler's gambit coin being sold by Felusia Stato since 3.0 ...

A friend and I tried to find The Ancient Tome today in Outlaw's Den, and we can confirm it is not in the expected location. I had the 3 vendor buffs active and this did not help.

We tried Macrobinoculars and Seeker droids in the room at the very top of that building (having both finished the respective heroics) and this also did not reveal any hidden tomes or clickable objects.

I tried the HK-51 scanner unit, but had to go to my stronghold to get it, and hence the 3 vendor buffs dropped before I returned. The scanner without buffs revealed nothing.

We scoured the room for a good solid 5-10 minutes, and found no indications of any clickables or hidden objects.

Seems like it has indeed been removed, presumably to be added back (at possibly a different location) once they decide to add the hidden exploration achievements for Yavin 4.

It's funny that you guys are still trying to make something of this. BioWare said it was nothing, and now they've removed it from the game it really is nothing; give it up already.

Anyone who posts info from the closed beta is breaking the NDA (which never expires, btw). If there is something related to the ancient tome, the beta participants are not allowed to talk about it.

You will notice that page contains the following disclaimer:

"Several world boss sections and secrets were submitted by a third party who did not write the actual content. If you recognize those sections as being paraphrased from your work, please contact us so we can properly credit you."

In other words, the people who wrote that page stole the work of the testers who actually respected and obeyed the NDA. It's sad because the testers who respected the devs and abided by their guidelines get their names dragged through the mud by someone else who copy+pasted in violation of their legally binding agreement.

In light of that I've removed the link. No need to give such things views.
