Now this one I find truly annoying... And still wishing they'd come up with a new animation for Overload.

This bug has popped up with game update 1.2 going live.
Interesting...so before 1.2 they didn't clip? I only fairly recently started using those kinds of robes, but I get the same thing with Traditional Nylite Vestments and the Diabolist robes, which seem to have the same hood mesh as Saber Marshal.

But if they previously didn't have a clipping problem, that's kind of encouraging...seems like it might be an easier fix than if they had always clipped.

I can tell you more, they already have a fix for this on their hands for a very long time. They just cba to implement it.
Here is my evidence:
Back when 1.2 was released, it was not just saber marshal type robes that have become broken. Same goes for elder battlemind type robes, which were having exactly the same hood clipping issue. But at the very moment when Revan's robes hit the Cartel Market, the clipping issue for the elder battlemind type (since this is the type of Revan's robes) has been immediately fixed. But not for the saber marshal type though, which remains unfixed till this day.

Yeah. For example, the Black Talon / Essels flashpoint hyperspace crash bug has been around just about this long. For a widely reported bug that causes the game to insta-crash in the midst of group play to endure for such a length of time suggests that they don't actually have the ability to fix it.

This was my customer service experience: I want the Gearhead title so I looked at what speeders I need. I see Aratech Nethian is not checked off the legacy list so I double check my inventory and there it is. I submit a ticket under Customer Service "Items" and I get the generic "This is not a game issue - it's a bug. Please submit a bug report". Ticket closed.

Hmm - so you don't walk the complaint to the next cubicle? OK, I will do as you ask.

I submit the bug report. I get the generic "Thanks for submitting your bug report. We will look at it. We don't reply to bug report submissions." Ticket closed.

Hmm - do I feel "customer serviced"? No. I've done what you've asked - my problem isn't fixed. My experience in other MMOs has ranged. But the better ones have Devs that can "hack" (I think would be the right word) into your character and issue you the update / item / title, etc. I'm guessing SWTOR doesn't have this feature.

So I submit a ticket under "General" explaining the above unfulfilled feelings I have. Could a real life person reply to placate me a little? I get a reply that says "please share your problem on the forums. Devs probably won't reply". Ticket closed.

I guess this post is my last outlet to get the problem fixed. As a previous poster alluded - hopefully this post will give the Aratech Nethian's "repulsorlifts" a little more squeak in hopes of some oil from the Devs.

Thank you.

It's a Cartel Market speeder and BW promised that Cartel Market items would not be related to Achievement Points.

So they probably made it so that it didn't count towards the AP (keeping their promise) but forgot to remove it from the Meta achievement - thus creating a bug.

I did a very quick check - the Longspur Sportster, STAP Royal and Pacer are also Cartel speeders. They are on the list for Longspur Collector Legacy achievement and are working no problem. I liked your thought, but it must be a specific bug.

Patch 2.5b has a bunch of Achievements that were fixed. Could you possibly include the Aratech Nethian Bug (where it doesn't show in the Legacy Achievements even though you have it) the next time you are rooting around in the Achievement coding?

I am still trudging along in hopes of getting the "GEARHEAD" title and I won't be able to get it if this bug is not fixed.

Thank you so much for investigating it.

Hmm - still no fix and no mention of it. I did find this entry in the "Known Issues"....

•The Achievement "Ilum Beastmaster" is not able to be completed due being unable to obtain the Bogwing Codex entry.

Would it be too much to have a similar entry like...

*The title "Gearhead" is not able to be completed due to being unable to have the Aratech Nethian Achievement register in your Achievement List.

Or - possibly just fix it? Please?

Apparently the issue is that CM items aren't supposed to be part of the achievement titles or grant points. So they need to remove the Nethian from the achievement.
