Uh you should have told everyone the conquest change a week ago

Lots of guilds will not be making 6.0's goals with this week limp conquest objectives.

  • The Achievements for earning Command Rank 300 on Classes will become Feats of Strength with Onslaught's launch.
  • Numerous currencies are being converted to credits at a low rate. Command Point Consumables, Alliance Recon Data, Command Tokens, Command Gear Pieces, and Unassembled Components.
  • All utilities will be reset on launch day so be sure to spend your points when you login.
  • All set bonuses are now on item shells instead of armorings, this change is retroactive.
  • Conquest Guild Targets for this week's Conquest will be judged against the NEW values, not the existing ones. You will also receive NEW Guild rewards for completing them. This has no effect on Personal Conquests.
  • No reason to stockpile Command Crates either as they will not convert into Renown crates and Command Tokens will become credits.
  • All Legacy Perks for GC will now affect Renown. The Commanding Legacy Perk has been adjusted, it no longer stacks but is a 25% increase for Renown gain across the Legacy.

Thanks all!

Some very good information here. I echo other's comments that the guild conquest should have been stated last week since many guilds may have chosen different planets this week since the 6.0 points are based on increased points for every objective as well to offset the higher point threshold. Expecting a guild to now make 5 million points instead of 1.3 without those increased objective points is completely unrealistic and highly frustrating.

A suggestion to alleviate this would be to ignore what size of planet a guild invaded this week and simply check the accumulated guild points against the NEW values and apply rewards accordingly. If this was already the plan, then good work thinking ahead about it. If it wasn't the plan, then it SHOULD be.

No thank you... just raise the GC Point Cap.

Considering the setbonus shells. Do you need to put the appropriate armourings and mods inside these to get the setbonus ? Or will they autofill? I have my gear in legacy gear and the pieces skattered among multiple toons? WIll they become legacy as well?

I'm assuming you mean the unassembled pieces that are primarily dropped in operations with 'command gear pieces' here but the choice of words is still a little ambiguous imo, can we get a clarification?

Eric, can you explain the thought process behind this change? This is extremely annoying, especially considering the expected cost of augmentation kits in the upcoming update since the crafting requirements are so high. I'm not so much worried about the implications on legacy gear, which I imagine are still fairly crippling for people that used that system heavily, but the credit cost this is going to incur to reaugment gear constantly is immense.

The options seem to be either sink millions of credits into reaugmenting gear at every step of the gear progression or go without augments entirely until you get your final set of gear. Neither of those options sound appealing to me for my main, who I've always kept in a single set of augmented armor that I could then swap mods into without needing to reaugment.

Am I looking at this the wrong way? This seems like a really bad change.

Thanks for the heads up. I can now completely ignore conquest for the week because there is no way I'm going to hit 500k, and the personal rewards are fairly useless, so, yeah, it's back to ignoring conquest. I'm so glad you told us before I spent all that time working on conquest this week (except for the hours I've already wasted). Thanks.
