The game has supported many new mechanics during his lifetime. Alliance Alert Missions, Arenas, new cinematics styles, Starfighter... So I'm pretty sure HeroEngine, the engine of SWTOR, is capable of understand an "IF HEROIC QUEST TAKEN TERMINAL == AUTOCOMPLETE; ELSE COMPLETE_NPC;" Moreover, they achieved to introduce the Heroic Questgivers in a way you can pick the quests from the terminal or from the NPC, why don't code a different way to trigger the rewards window? The voice acting and the NPCs are there, the only thing is coding it.

Also, Section X Questgivers and the bonus series questgivers in the fleet... they could be in the game. Why remove them? People that have worked with HeroEngine here in the forums knows that there is a simple "toggle in/toggle off". It is quite frustrating for me at least.

I never understood that, either.

I actually fail to see any kind of logic behind that move.

According to the logic that sounds most plausible to me, the HK-quest chain quest giver should have been removed, too.

NOOOOOOOO! Don't give them new ideas to remove more content!!!!!

Indeed, but this topic is almost 10K visits. Some dev should have read this by now. I'm just waiting for a official response from BW.

First of all, sorry for double posting!
------------------------------------------------
As you all know, Patch 4.4 will come out tomorrow if everything goes as planned, and I wanted to do a quick update regarding this topic that concern me quite a lot (and a lot of people as well, more than I expected).

Here is the patch notes, if you want to check it out: http://www.swtor.com/patchnotes

Okay, so a quick sum up for what content we've lost so far (With a little bit of copy paste):

- Heroic Missions Return Dialog. This is the main thing we are protesting in this topic. I understand that for grinding, the autocomplete window for Heroics is a good thing, but we want to suggest an alternative for new players and for people who want to enjoy the true experience. There's been a lot of suggestions here, but I would say that if you simply pick the quest from the questgiver, you have to return it to him, and if you pick it up from the terminal, just get the autocomplete. Easy!! We don't lose content, and for the Alliance grinding is just more enjoyable. EVERYONE IS HAPPY!

- Section X Questgivers. They are still missing in both fleets. We will have to insist in this. The NPC and voice acting is already done, BW only have to toggle in ON. I'm a completionist, and I want to experience all of the content in this game. Black Hole, Oricon and another daily mission questgivers are still up, so I didn't understood the reason behind this. Please BioWare, add them again.

- Bonus series questigvers from Alderaan, Nar Shaddaa and Hoth (Voss terminal) have being removed. Can't understand this again. With KoTFE they promised more story focused, but they removed old content UNNECESARILLY AND WITH ANY WARNING AT ALL. This just makes me sad.

- Crafting Missions Changes. Some of them have being change to work for both factions (don't really know the changes) and others have being removed, with a promise of returning in the future. This quests were awesome in terms of history, they brought back some cool things of KOTOR if you took the time of reading them. But hopefully, they will eventually return, all of them.

- Kallig Mask Removed, as well as "Torchy" from the Smuggler questline. I'm quite outdated here. With the companions being reworked after a lot of people complainning about their weapon restrictions, I don't really know if Corso Riggs can wield Torchy again. Please, if someone knows, just let me know! And for the Kallig Mask, I remember this item reward from a Sith Inquisitor Quest was removed some time ago. Again, if someone has news about this, let me know!

"Hope is the last to die". So with this new patch, let's hope changes at last.

Yeah... let's see if there is a change in the near future.

-----------------------------------------------------

Hey everyone! I have news regarding the Section X mission givers in both fleets. A few days ago, I decided to contact the Custom Support Team answering where was the Section X questgivers, and if their removal was intended. I received this email from them:

Spoiler


Then, I opened a bug ticket explainning the same issue, and replied this message to Eugene thanking him for the time He took to write this message. General Conlath and Captain Gostel might finally come back after all!! This would be great news for the issues we are discussing here in this thread. Let's keep sharing our thoughs so BioWare can improve the game in a better way!

Just found this now, this is wrong. The Quest givers for the Alderaan, Nar Shaddaa and Hoth Bonus series are there. However and that surprised me as well they now require Level 65 to pick up. After completing them the also reward you with the boxes you can turn in at Odessen for your Alliance specialist. So this seems to be an intentional change. The lack of information about this change however is still a little bit surprising.

As I already said several times : They are sacrificing lowbie and midbie content to cater end content players.

Wait... What?! Could you clarify more, please? Where are the questgivers now? I know Hoth is in a terminal in Voss-Ka, don't know if the quest is active, but both Alderaan and Nar Shaddaa questgivers used to be in the Combat Area in the fleet.
