Just my luck, returning to the game again, and again I miss out on the packs that have the Revan Gear in them. Hope this pack makes its return soon.

What's so special about Revan's armor? It's ugly as sith. Especially around the shoulders.

The mask, and the name, are the only things that are "specail about it.
If it is the first you are after, *newsflash* many masks have the same geo.
If it's the second you are after, man, get a life.
Blunt logic and common sense are my specialities. Handy weapons, those.

For me, I never bought the packs from the CM -- I hardly ever buy anything from there -- but I watch the GTN, and I can say this; the Grand Acquisitions Pack dealt a big blow to the economy.

Apart from stuff like Bastila's armor set - which usually goes for 1.2 mil, all told -- that I got for 200k, there was an overabundance of low-value items, like innumerable "Stately Dress", "Organa Loyalist" and "[somethingorother] Dancer's".

If the GAPs are to be implemented, I say the items they should "drop" (for lack of a better word) should be of higher value, I will not dish out 900 CC for a green rep item, a JM-27 Assault Cannon and a "Fancy Reveller's Armor Set".
BioWare, not the way to appeal to players.

If it's gonna drop something, make sure it drops varactyls instead of Ubriki bantha poodoo, high-value sets like Thana Vesh's instead of the umpteenth Zealot's one, and the "special item" that is special, not a model defender, but, ya know, a primordial assault cannon, per se.

IN short, I like the idea of a set in one box, just make sure that that set is worth buying.

So when you say "get a life"...that's an example of you arguing with what the person is saying, not them personally?

...Or they simply have a different taste and don't find it ugly?

Also, I don't think I've seen another skirt with that model that was moddable on the gtn, so I snagged two for just 123K for both together. My Revan fanboy SI gotta have something nice to wear, right

And eh, it's a game. I wanted the Revan statue because it's Revan too, for example, and why not? I happen to like Revan. I'm not so keen on what they did to the upper part of his armor in this game either, which is why I'm not gonna bother going to ridiculous lengths to get the full set, (not even for that SI), but I was rather happy when the statue did drop in one of the packs I got (even if the Satele or Malgus statue would have been more practical xD well, at least I won't have to wait for my comps to come back from selling items when my inventory is full any more). Now, if only I could manage to get one of those hoverchairs...

The speeder economy took a huge hit as well. Although I did manage to flip a few erroneously underpriced items...

For example, I found a Volatile Conqueror's Saberstaff for 25k and flipped it for 3mil. Good times.

What's so good with that ? Making friends happy is far better, in my opinion.

If I had a close Guildee that needed it, he or she would've got it. Other than that, why does it bother you so much that I make a profit on sales? Heck selling it for 3mil was still half of the next cheapest one. Who did I hurt?
