The reputation system will be fantastic, I had a good time with it in swg. I just wonder if the reputation grind will bring any amount of xp or legacy xp at all.

But isnt the Ilum faction based, whereas the Den is FFA?

However, unlike the Outlaw's Den, you cannot be attacked by Players of your own side.

Really? I don't remember that at all. Then again, my memory isn't the best on things like that. Thanks for the info!
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!

They said to expect 8 or 9 this time due to holidays. Still I hope it hits PTS soon as well. Also I hope they will finally allow character transfers to PTS again

Exactly but it seems developers these days think those that sign up on PVE servers secretly want to be forced into PVP just to see some new content. Content everyone wants to see but with the goal to make sure PVE players get ganked through forced PVP when trying to see new content.

It would be nice if BW would just label this portion of content for PVP (if it actually is more PVP orientated) so the ones that dislike PVP can just skip all the talk about it cause they would then know it's definitely not for them.

Maybe BW will enlighten us with more information sooner than later.

Please please please.. just stop this horrible and unreasonable complaint every time new content is announced. It is getting old and has been pointed out many times that this logic is completely flawed.

An MMO that stops to either fix bugs for new content, or stops making new content to fix bugs, has basicly admitted defeat. The game needs to continue doing both to stay healthy.

Man, that this is the first response to a long awaited announcement about the last content patch before RotHC just really rubs me the wrong way. How much of a whiner can you be.

Show me a game without bugs, and then you can make this complaint.

Good to know. Not that it will cut down the number of griefers to zero... but at least I'll have an idea beforehand.

Yes, I realize I can avoid going there - my point is that if they are putting PvE objectives and rewards there, I can't avoid it if I want to complete them. I rolled on a PvE server for a reason - so that I could have a complete PvE experience without PvP.

If they are all PvP objectives with PvP rewards, then that's cool - I don't need to obsess about what I'd be missing since I wouldn't miss it. And I certainly don't begrudge PvP folks an event, please don't think that I do. If that's what this is, I think that'd be great - too little love for straight PvPers, especially in non-instanced spaces. A strictly PvP event would be awesome for you. But that's not what it sounds like.
