Okay so I know this is about balance but.... let's talk about all the possibilities of gear.... There is 11 different odds for Armorings and 60 for mods and 120 for Enhancements.... I thought Vanilla SWTOR gearing was rough but this takes the cake.... I get you want Play your way and all this flavor etc but c'mon really? Also do you realize how much it's tilted to the favor of the wealthier player? I am just sitting here mind blown with all due respect can we just have a gearing system that is like Vanilla and or 2.0 please?

Play our way with this many gear possibilities would mean a vendor that wasn’t RNG and just let us choose,

Ya crafting was way better back in the day. They added a bunch of steps and basically required an alt for one of the gathering requirements which wasn't a thing before they started changing stuff.

Hey all,

We are going to bring PTS down briefly this AM to deploy a new patch. That patch is going to be putting crafting materials on the boost terminals to allow for easy crafting of high-end augments.

Thanks all.

Requiring alts to have complete independance while crafting is something i see in other games. But here in SWTOR it did not feel restrictive mostly because of two things: leveling crew skills is fast and for the most part not tied to character level. Progression inside a tier was also very good requiring rarest mats as rating increased. Exotics only for the top.
The new exotics requirment for green fillers along the huge mats inflation are the biggest issues i have with new system.

Putting crafting mats on the boost terminal does not address the fact that current PTS crafting costs are ridiculous.

the gearing system is horrible, there are too many variations of armourings, modifications and enhancements, it will be a night mare to get BiS. And set bonuses are tired to the clothing. Well, how are people supposed to gear alts now?
