You have seen it, you have felt it within you as you have traveled with me. The growing anger, the rage, and the power it brings. Yet the power does not build without struggle. Through small cruelties greater ones are born. Kriea/Darth Traya

For some reason, they wait and slip those in when it goes to live. Like the last anni marauder nerf. So keep your fingers crossed that its a buff and not a nerf to something no one is complaining about.

People that said there was no gear discrepancy and only skill in swtor, now are sad that they cannot maintain that advantage longer in 1.6

My name is Keith and I'm an altoholic.

I still play a lot but I've been mainly banking comms on my Shadow, leveling my Vanguard and Merc, doing raids and leveling crew skills. I don't know how people say there is nothing to do in this game. I constantly find myself with too much to do.

I should be PvPing on my Commando a lot more now since I'm going to wait until 1.6 to get my Shadow to 50. Now I can get him his WH gear as well as the rest of my alts so they have it ready for 50. If only I didn't just buy the whole BM Stalker /sigh.

I'm also really looking forward to the new WZ. You should check out Dulfy's site for the write up and vid. It looks like it's going to be awesome.

3) new lvl 50 players can save up more than 7000 commendations = almost full WH gear once they hit lvl 50 + augments = again less gear gap and suffering for new players, more competitive play.

4) with the price on WH gear; getting fully agmented remodded WH set will be very cheap and fast = getting competitive gear very easily.


PS: I have toons with full modded WH gear and yes I'd LOVE to see more properly equipped players in warzones. I do think that 1.6. prices changes are more than welcome for the most people. Especially for the true pvpers who seeks competition and proper fight. Yes teamwork and fully EWH equipped ppl will have an edge still, BUT average pvp players or smaller groups of them will be able to do much more in wzs.

PSS: New wz is cool, totally cool and will require some proper cooradination when two decent groups meet.


TL;DR - the cheaper the proper pvp gear gets and the smaller the gear gap is, the more equal warzones are = more fun. Hopefully.

Meh.

The new gear creates problems with players who are currently still grinding to WH, and still have several BM pieces. They'll essentially be knocked down a tier and be in a tougher spot than fresh 50's who have comms saved up to get the newer stuff. The same thing happened to players when they got rid of the last gear grind and the old Centurion sets.
