Hey folks,

With the 5.8a Conquest changes out the door, let’s talk about what we have planned for 5.9. We hope to address concerns over the viability of completing Conquests on alts, points for crafting, and ability to run Operations more frequently. We are going to address this through a few different changes:
  • Increasing points gains for Objectives for repeatable and daily repeatable Objectives.
  • An additional buff for GSF, Warzone, and Flashpoint Participation Objectives.
    • The “Play a Flashpoint” Objective is being changed to “Play a Flashpoint or Uprising.”
  • The “Kill X Enemies” Daily Objective will now be split into three Objectives. Kill 50 / 100 / 150. Additionally, progress on this Objective will not reset everyday (if you killed 40 enemies, it won’t reset back to 0).
  • We are going to introduce a new repeatable Daily Objective for completing 3 and 5 Activity Finder Activities (FP, Op, WZ, GSF, Uprising).
  • We are introducing a new Daily Repeatable Objective to “Defeat the Final Boss in an Operation.”
  • We are introducing a new repeatable Objective for “Craft 50 items."
    • This Objective gives another path for crafters to earn points and is also a mechanism for characters of any level to participate. We will monitor the number of items required to craft closely and will make changes in the future if it is too high, or too low.

The goal of these changes is that if you complete the bigger value one-time Objectives on a given character, you have a lot more ability to earn points via repeatable Objectives. Not only are there more Objectives to work towards, they are worth more points as well. One of our goals is to encourage that you play multiple types of content and so that will always remain the most optimal path to Conquest points. However, these changes will allow a player to more easily get their Conquest points even if they just play one type of content on repeat.

As always, keep your feedback coming! We will continue to monitor the state of Conquests and make changes as needed. Thanks everyone.

PS - Usual disclaimer that these could change prior to 5.9, but I will let you know of any updates I hear.

Well that doesn't actually seem to do anything much at all for Alts.

So like ALL the Conquest Changes so far it fails to meet the objectives you claim it will.

Those seem like reasonable changes and steps in the right direction. Thank you for listening, and thank you for the update.

Daily per legacy or daily per toon? Could you please address the question anyone with an alt actually cares about?

And if the answer is per legacy can you just go back to the drawing board, because then you still don't get it.

That tells me you already know its too high. So why not just fix it now.

What about the weekies that used to be able to be done with your alts. Those you can't do anymore.

And please fix Makeb. It has been quite some time that the Makeb stage weekly was in the game but yet the conquest still states that and if you do the weekly that we have now it doesn't work for the conquest. This has been long pass time to be fixed.

Are these new objectives going to all be a part of every conquest? If so, that seems at odds with your stated goal of fixing how homogenized the conquests were pre-5.8.

So rather than just allowing us to do these PER CHARACTER, you're sticking to your once per Legacy stance and just throwing more points at us...until you fix the alt issue Eric, this is an utter waste of your time. Stop pretending to fix it when you aren't.

One time objectives are BAD...

^ This.

This is the issue they are ignoring at their peril.

Today is a Bank Holiday here in the UK, no work, and I haven't even logged into SWTOR.

Did just update LOTRO and sub for 6 months though - because guess what, they've actually added new content.
