With new Dread Forged PvE armor (rating 180) now on PTS, and likely coming out when 2.4 hits live, it's only a matter of time before 75 Mods with Rating 174 are available for crafting. It would be nice if they could fix the stats distribution on the droid gear at the same time (since the equivalent mods will be available anyway). Then maybe it will be worth buying these schematics.

3 points:
  • BW/EA will not admit they made mistake; if the mistake is popular they will claim working as intended, if it's unpopular they will remain silent.
  • Crafted gear (anything un-modable) has always had poorer stat distribution than modable gear, e.g., crafted armortech and synthweaving pieces vs. cybertech armoring/mods. The crafted droid gear is no exception.
  • They're not going to fix it.

If like me you bought these schems without doing the math and comparing them to level 66 or 69 mods, then you were as foolish as I was. Worse I should have known better because the math on the "artifact" armormech and sythweaving schems were a joke compared to the better-than-arkanian artifact ears and implants - which are now being given away for free with the weeklies on Czerka (and subsequently destroying the artifact ear and implant market, but that's another rant entirely).
Mal: Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
ZoŽ: Big damn heroes, sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

Nope, I was not like you in that I didn't purchase these schematics in advance of comparing the stats.

As for the first and third point that's for BW/EA to decide. It looks to be an obvious error but whether they'll admit to that and fix it is entirely on them. Nothing I can do about that but ask for clarification. If they want to come out and say "Working as intended" again that's up to them.

As for the second point droid gear was the exception. When they added the Mandalorian War Droid and Assassin Droid gear their stats (and rating) were arguably better than the available comms gear at the time. So the current droid gear, made from schematics bought with comms, is a departure from how they have implemented the same previously.

Whats sad, is I knew form the start these would be some what like the ones before , i will buy the Schematic but not why you all do it , to me i can stil gear all pets better in moded custom gear, and untill i see better,which will never happen unless they make it so we can't mode pet gear ,i wil buy the Schematic only because i like to cellect Schematic and the only real useable schematic to me wil be those from raid gear , untill the day they don't let us make raid gear of some kind ,i will make it and gear my pets in it and buy any all schemaitc i can as i go worhless or not .


I do raid and enjoy it very much but also like crating gear, making the next to best gear is great, atm, and no one seems to be complaing . ...

SO, if anyone wants some made im on the JC Server , Pst me on the forums and i will give you my toons name,i would rather not tell who iam on the forums ... for Driod armor , all i need is mats no tips in fact you will get back any tips i get .. I never take tips . unless you keep givnig it to me, then i only take them, to not be rude . dont beve me,well then dont know what to say other then : pst me and find out , i do it that way for any thing, all wys have, all ways will, including relic, but haven't had much luck reing relics .

atm that might be true but after the 2.4 patch it will not be as far as droid armor goes .. driod will allwys be just below the bis in till the next set etc . i mean is it may seem like driod armor is better at the time but is it really because of mats etc , you can just buy the mods no cost to some extent just run raids and farrm comms, to me the mats, can be better used .

Ok so I noticed with the new update I can not seem to find Isotope-5 on any vendors. Whats with that I can't even craft the CZ droid armor because i cant find any isotop5? Anyone know where to get this stuff anymore or is it even worth buying this stuff anymore since it seems to be a waste of time to craft anything anymore since bio-ware is screwing over every craftier out there
