Hi everyone,

Here is an inside look into an update coming to gearing in 7.0. Legendary Items is a new way to customize the play style of your character! Expect to see some of these in an upcoming PTS patch coming in the very near future.

Thanks Jackie, this looks like a nice change and I'm excited to see how it plays out

Same, I hope we also get some pre 7.0 setbonuses with these new legendary items I miss some of the assassin ones.

I am not sure how to feel about one expansion throwing a metric ton of set bonus gear at us, only to completely omit that feature moving forward...

I do at least hope you don't accidentally destroy the Victorious Pioneer's XP set bonus though.

How will this affect achievements for sets?

As long as those new Legendary items are as good or better as curent ones, like Powertech Tank's "Emergency Power" Set, which is mandatory to have right now...

So what happens to set bonus gear in 7.0? Existing in tandem?

What happens to tacticals?

Will we be able to have multiple active set bonuses active to create player agency similarly to what tacticals gave us, and what we would have had in 6.0 if gear sets were set to 3/6 piece bonuses instead of 4/6?

As I mentioned in the other thread, will there be any responses to the stuff that's on the PTS now in addition these new updates? Because there's a lot of concerns about the current state of certain classes and a lot of bugs and question marks and ambiguities that have been completely ignored for almost 3 weeks at this point. What's the purpose of the PTS at this point if you guys aren't engaging with it? Why should we put in that effort if you won't?

Does this mean we won't be able to use DvL XP armor to level from 75-80?
