LOL, Conquest PvE rewards just got decimated

Just logged in expecting a little note about "once per day" around the flashpoints.


Oh no, now it's got the one-off symbol. So you can now only do a certain FP once per week.

At least my guild didn't invade those planets, thank goodness for that.


Edit: Just checked, there's now only TWO to FOUR repeatable PvE objectives total. All the others are now one-off!

Is it per character or legacy-wide?

If the latter, may as well declare victory for the GSF and PVP people immediately.

I dont do PvP, nor do I do GSF, yet I will still EASILY be able to hit the 35k mark in the 5 days or so the event runs

.......... so?

Good luck conquering a planet with about 10 once-per-week objectives at 1000 a pop.

Just invading a PvP planet gets 1000 for showing up, discounting everything else.


This exploit fix was like doing surgery with a sledgehammer.

I couldn't do the 250 kills on Balmorra on multiple characters - I can only assume that this (flashpoint once a week) is therefore also a legacy wide thing.

Man, two weeks of whining (first, commander farming, and now flashpoint farming) has leeched the fun out of doing conquests REAL fast.

EDIT: yep. It's now once per LEGACY that you can do the flashpoint. Unbelievable.

Just zerg WZs with your guildies and go afk. You'll earn points fast and, if enough pvp'ers complain by this, BW might review things... Who knows...

Lol! Decimated? I'm sorry, but I think I finally understand and yours is a L2P issue.

Why did your guild invade a x2 PvP planet if you didn't intend to do PvP?

Wait, the change only effects the conquest rewards, correct? Otherwise flashpoints have not changed. In the past you could farm FPs like BT/Esseles for light or dark points, and the Foundry for mats. Has that now changed?

You can still do gf for repeatable dailies i thought. That is 3 a day you can do. They do need to tweak the pvp and gsf values though.
