Personally never bothered with the relics because they seemed like a hassle and it was easier to just keep one loadout. Not bothered by the relic change, but (especially given the timing) it would have been a good idea to have a replacement for the anti-viral kits. A reusable vaccine, as has been suggested by others, is a decent idea.

Make an special (additional) aug slot for relics, convert antiviral relics to be a new aug that fits into the new relic aug slot.

Boom. Everyone's happy.

As long as it doesn't require biochem to use i think either a crafted schematic or a straight vendor buy would be fine, a THORN reputation requirement to use seems logical and fair however.

How about an ilvl 306 THORN Relic so we don't lose out on stats when wearing it

And when you guys do stupid crap like this you always are "looking at ways to make it suck less" DO THAT PART BEFORE YOU CHANGE CRAP THAT DOESN'T NEED CHANGING!

This is wasted dev time that should have been spent on fixing some of the plethora of real problems in this game, like the horrible server performance in ops that leads to massively buggy encounters, or the broken Social bar that won't stay where you freaking put it that was taken out of the UI Editor for no reasonable reason. Or the terrible controls and settings for trying to manage Buffs/Debuffs as a healer. Or a Hood Toggle or literally anything that makes the game better. This change DOES NOT MAKE THE GAME BETTER. It feels like some busybody needs better management direction in the office.

I am so freaking frustrated with the development of this game, So many systems that could be massively improved with some seemingly minor tweaks, yet it feels like you add things, never improve them, then make annoying "fixes" like this.

Just replace the kit with a reusable Rakghoul Vaccine and be done with wasting time on it.
yup, just another stupid change no one asked for.

i like the idea of a special type of augment on the tactical item, you only get one so its almost like an extra tactical slot.

I would support any of the suggested ideas:
1) A new MK-whatever Antiviral Kit which is Item Rating 306
2) A Legendary reputation-associated re-usable Vaccine
3) A Legendary reputation-associated re-usable Vaccine crafted by Biochemists but doesn't require biochem to use. This could be a great use for some of those rakghoul material drops that we're not using.
4) Or even something we haven't thought of. We already have items that grant permanent abilities ... like the Macrobinocular and Seeker Droid items you get at the end of those quests, which when consumed grant you the abilities permanently. Perhaps something similar for this? A THORN reputation item that, when consumed, grants you the ability to apply the vaccine to yourself, which is instant and without a cooldown or energy requirement.

The goal is to have:
1) Something we can keybind or otherwise place in our toolbars to re-apply the vaccine during the applicable fights
2) Something that doesn't negatively affect our item rating

When swoop came out, I liked the idea of a Qol tactical slot, the speed boost tac could sit in. If they could do that, maybe just make a vaccine tac. Only these kind of tacticals could be slotted there so no doubling up on combat tacticals.

Or maybe just get rid of the stupid plague that annoying players can bring back to the fleet over and over to try to infect others, it serves no purpose in the game other than to be an annoyance, so just get rid of the damn thing.
