So it's 70k total from the start to legend ? I've already got that saved up , hmm , still I might still play the event as it gives daily coms and money , the odd level 50 orange armoring piece for companions. Good to know but yeah we would like a screenshot though if possible.

If you can get everything with one level 50 in 2 weeks, then that's ok.

But the design of this is just... strange. You make it so difficult to determine whether people can get the weapons or not by making it hard to calculate. It is best to keep it simple. Don't make people "save tokens" in order to reach champion. And what is the purpose of the weekly caps in conjunction with tokens?

It is best to just make it a traditional rep grind, where there is a weekly cap, but what you see is what you get.
Give a flat rep increase rather than save tokens to be used in weeks to come.

I've already heard some people say, oh you don't get rep for killing world bosses. Yes you do, you just need to loot the token off the boss. But why this extra token step? Why not just give a direct rep from killing the world boss? What purpose does this new method of getting rep accomplish? Why this strange innovation that confuses people more than helps people?

That would be much appreciated. I thought my grind was over because I had enough stockpiled to get over 60k total (20k for legend). So....I guess not.

Also, people seem to ignore the possibility of farming reputation outside the Dailies. The Ancient Gree Destroyers (the ones you have to kill for one of the PvP-dailies' bonus mission) can be found south of the pvp-area. 8 spawn points in total, 7min respawn, grant 1 270-reputation tokens per fight (with a chance of getting the L1-L Defender -pet) and they are easy enough to be soloed (I've done it on a Watchman-Sentinel and a Hybrid-Sage multiple times, no companions available). They only drop 1 rep-item, so grouping seriously degrades the amount of farming you can do.

You can hit Champion in 3 weeks.

Anyone who says otherwise is misinformed.

Interesting, is the Weekly cap going to be reset even though the Event will be gone? I'd imagine it to remain at 0 till the next Event.

If I'm mistaken, then I'm already Legend.

From what I have been told, you can keep popping those core/chip/artifacts each week following the event. If you maximize each week you will hit champion just barely, followed by legend three weeks later.

~13k max max per week to get to 30k for legend.

All of you stop ************! If there is any one ************ it should be me since today i get my 23 Helix and i`m short of 1 to get my weapon and all of this because is a pain in the *** to find a grp to kill Xeno and i mist it on the first week so THX BioWare for showing us what good items you made but just SHOW us you might as well make a glass stand near the NPC and put them like an exposition .

And this is my feeling regarding the limitation to a 2 week only event
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.
