I like the ability to mix/match bonuses. However, it comes at the cost of one bonus; where as with the current set bonuses players get up to 3 bonuses. But being limited to just 2 items, is again tying one hand behind the players' backs.

Also, with the bonus being tied to implants and ear pieces, implementation of this is 2-piece limit is going to be difficult for BW I'm sure. My advice to BW would be to let us have up to 3 legendary items and bonuses.

My recommendation would be to limit the Ear piece to +5% Endurance/Mastery/Shield/Alacrity/etc. Put other ability bonuses on the implants.

This keeps the players with 3 bonuses and makes BW programming so munch more simpler and hopefully fewer bugs. Because we all know BW never changes something without introducing a host of bugs.

Can you please provide us with a list including available items, and where they will drop.

I just want to add to the chorus of those expressing concern that this change will nullify the 50% XP boost for the Victorious Pioneer's armor set. However, if this means the set is broken, and it cannot be fixed quickly enough, this can be easily remedied by offering Victorious Pioneer's Legendary Items. The VP Legendary items could be a two-piece set with each one offering a 25% xp boost. Those of us who earned the set back during DvL should, of course, get these two items as in-game mail.

I am very interested in seeing just how we'll be able to level up these pieces in terms of cost and how easily needed mats or tokens will be to obtain. For those of us who have obtained gear sets or individual pieces, selling them to vendors should result in receiving some of these tokens/components--I'm not asking for a 1:1 trade, with us being able to immediately get the corresponding Legendary Items, but say at least 25% of what's needed. Is that reasonable?

This is a question I have concerns about.

I like the Victor's SET bonus on many Jedi, the 2, 4 and 6 piece SET bonus likely be desirable for many. There are several other SETs from Concentrated Fire 2/4/6, Established Foothold 2/4/6, Meteor Brawler 2/4/6 that also GREAT.

They also likely want to FOCUS first on at least 2-3 Healing SETs that work for various class based on Combat Style, as well as 2-3 Tank SETs based on Combat Style as well.

While there are some more desirable Assault SETs that also highly desirable for Jedi & Sith, similar to Apex Predator for Trooper's. I could see those being introduced a bit later? But can't really say, just wished the OLD SETs at least carry you thru to 75-79!

QUESTION IS
Will new GEAR sets have at least a choice of 1 SET bonus that requires all 7 pieces to enable?

All we really know is old SETs 2/4/6 bonus being moved to Earpiece, and at most 1 Implants that can be Legendary. Is that limited only to the Earpiece, and just the 1st Implant slot to enable the bonus?

All I can HOPE, is they move 1 SET bonus into Armor that requires all 7 pieces perhaps?

I agree, it's also a bit concerning!

Also HOPEFUL they allow removing of Class limitations for OLD sets, to be used as Outfit's on all classes so it's a reason to KEEP 1 of each SET in Legacy Bank.

Dear BW-people,

why can't you make one extensive article about 7.0 as a whole? I don't like all the small tidbits that are getting announced. It feels to me like you're just making things up along the way without a consistent plan.

WHAT EXACTLY IS YOUR FULL PLAN WITH 7.0, Mr. Kanneg?

What are you trying to achieve with all those many BIG changes which pretty much nobody had requested?

There are some good things in it, sure, but the overall cost is too high for me. Nothing about 7.0 entices me. Nothing. I dread the update. That ain't a good outlook for my future as a player.

7.0 doesn't appeal to me at all from what I learned so far through your short tidbits and the very unsatisfying PTS-builds. That's why I decided to unsubscribe after all these years. My sub ends in January. I can thus still play the new story fully for a couple of weeks. I lost all my motivation to continue helping to fund this game due to the direction this game is taking. I will continue as a preferred player. Money is not an issue. It's just that I really, really don't want to support Mr. Kanneg's vision for this game any longer. He so obviously wants me to play this game not my way.

I've been on this board since 2009, and in the game since summer 2011 (beta). Continuously playing and paying since early start 2011. I was happy until Mr. Kanneg took over. Since then it has been a constant decrease in quality. It is obvious that my way of playing this game is not how Mr. Kanneg wants people to play his game. I don't think I had one positive post here during the last year. By withdrawing my financial support, I hope that my mind gets more ease regarding this game. Good luck, Mr. Kanneg.

Please leave this stuff to WoW where it belongs! At least don't name it legendaries! Do we have to farm star ash and star cinders for it?

Hope those Legendary Items will hold the names of prior holders.
For example Darth Revan's Chestplate or Bastila Chan's Lightsaber

Not only "Legendary Chestplate" or "Boots" xD
click on it, you will love it

There is NO ear legendary. It was a mistake on the blog. They said so.

Of course not. It's GalaxyDust and GalaxyEmbers that we farm in Starghast, the new solo experience everyone never wanted! :P
