I'm thrilled to see Bioware keeping up it's momentum, and I always jump onto PTS as soon as I can.
Here's a list of purchasable Ship Armor
from the Fleet Vendor.
Heroic Space Combat missions are very difficult
, requiring the new Grade 7 ship armor.
As a bit of a surprise, the full Elite War Hero sets are in 1.6 and here are the stats and prices
(in images) for the Assassin DPS set.
Lastly, a first glimpse at the new Ancient Hypergate Warzone
shows promise, once I figured out the mechanics. This is on a lowbie Marauder because max level queues weren't popping at the time.
I hope you find some value in what I've dug up.
