    • Isla Rose

      and it can heal OR tank. BAMF.

  • Sindariel

    Hey Dulfy. Could you post some pics of the new droid gear, if possible?

  • Sarigar

    Black/blue dye is excellent! I am making a mint on red/black, having a new cash cow on the horizon is good news for my artificer.

  • Reest

    I tried to get to the new CZ-198 area, but wasn’t able to do so either via the quick travel terminals or my starship. Is this a universal problem at the moment?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      yes

      • Daniel

        Is it possible to get their manually or?

        • Daniel

          Ahh i just read on the Test Server forums that its impossible to go their at the moment due to some issues, ohh yeah just need to wait then untill they fix it :)

  • Stippling

    Now that is a patch.

  • Rhabech

    “Role-neutral” flashpoints could be interesting. I wonder what the boss fights will be like….

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Nothing exciting really. The bosses don’t hit hard and there are kolto tanks in each boss area you can click to get a health thingie for the entire group. That is why it is role neutral :)

      • Rhabech

        I see. Are there any puzzle mechanics in place to make them impossible to solo?

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          Nope, didn’t see any.

  • Dormei

    when will be released patch 2.3 ? ;)

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Early august

  • The Guilty Party

    So is the Bounty Contracts week event the only way to get rep for the BBA?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Looks like it.

  • DarthGummiBear

    They still need to put in a Black/red dye in the game, as opposed to the red/black we already have.

  • Malagarr

    What does the new flashpoints drop gear wise?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Black Market/Arkanian on the last boss.
