Interesting tidbits:

New flashpoints include all-new role-neutral Story Mode at Level 55, where Group Finder will match the first four players of any role for fast queue times!

Desirable dye color available in a method that's NOT cartel market gambling packs. Primary Black Secondary Blue Dye module schematic is available for players with Champion Rank with the Ordnance Acquisition Corps (Empire) / Adjudicators (Republic).

Complete Bounty Contracts Earn Galactic Reputation with the Bounty Broker's Association by completing bounty contracts during Bounty Contract Week! The Bounty Contract Week Event is not available on PTS.

Oh, looks fascinating! Cant wait to see what the new missions will be like! And the graphics change sound intriguing! ^_^

Hopefully this will also show some players that the game is going forward, and not just concentrating on the Cartel Market!

Incoming complaints from players about how the graphics vibrancy change affected the color of their favorite item/armor/mount/tree/revan robe.

Sounds like it's just environmental, not gear.

I wonder what the role neutral flashpoints. does it mean that a party of 4 DPSers would be viable for it?
Also, new daily zone is cool, especially with all new environment, I was expecting a new zone on old planet, like Section x or Black Hole.
New Reputation to grind is always great, I hope there will be some macrobinocular/seeker missions attached to it.

Damn, looks I will have to install PTS again to check it all out

Black-blue a desirable dye...? What planet did they fall from?
Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not?

Those role-neutral flash points really piqued my interest, and I hope that's exactly what it means - super brain-dead easy mode to see the story. That way, the hard modes can (hopefully!) focus more on the fights and mechanics and we (hopefully!) won't be forced to sit through endless exposition.

Heck, maybe for grins if we're geared enough we could take a companion through those solo. Now THAT could be interesting!

To be fair, the "desirable" was my editorializing. Black + anything that's not lame seems like a desirable color for many, no?
