The dev team has been very actively following all of the feedback that you in the community have been posting regarding this change. With that in mind, they are making one additional change… Starting in Game Update 4.2 all bosses in Nightmare Operations will drop 224 rating gear.

We saw a lot of feedback over the past few weeks where many of you felt strongly that Nightmare should be a guaranteed source for the best gear, even if that means the priority HM was equivalent. The reason that we did not make it this way initially is we had concerns about players ability to gain best in slot gear extremely quickly. However, if a group of players is skilled enough to run through multiple Nightmare Operations in a single week, we should reward that appropriately.

Again, just to remind you of the current timeline for these changes:
  • Game Update 4.1 (Chapter X) – The final boss of each NiM Operation is guaranteed to drop 224. All other NiM bosses have a chance for 224.
  • Game Update 4.2 (Chapter XI) – All bosses in each NiM Operations are guaranteed to drop 224.
The only reason we are not making all changes for 4.1 is the development time required to implement and test these changes. We want to make sure we get these changes implemented and working properly, and unfortunately we cannot complete all of this in time for 4.1.

Thanks everyone for your continued feedback.

Okay lets start off by how are u compensating us for all the lost repairs and gear?
Also what about the 224 offpieces??

IMO 224 is not nearly enough at this point. NIM has to be the final tier of gearing it has to drop a gear tier of its own which u cant get any other place in the game just NIM.

What about the tanking mods and enhancments? Im sure your dev team is clever on its own to realize that the only tank which is fully functional with defense is the juggernaut/ guardian. We want Absorb mods, shield mods, Absorb/shield enhacments. Shadows/ Assasins and Powertechs/ Vanguards DO NOT WANT DEFENSE, its an RNG based tanking stat that is useless to us!
