  • Holyfrog

    Any idea what the “several decorations have had there bind rules adjusted” means? Are you now going to be able to sell the oricanian warrior on the gtn? (Fingers crossed)

    • kkat69

      Some decorations become “bound” and remain in your inventory when consuming 1 and you have more than 1 in your inventory. For instance, If you have 2 Sandcrawlers in your inventory and they’re stacked, and you consume 1, the 2nd becomes ‘Bound’ and remains in your inventory.

      • ManDingoCC6901

        Is this what they updated to do, or is this what it was doing and they “fixed” it? It doesn’t seem that it should bind extras, even if they are stacked. Does the extra bind if it is not stacked?

        • kkat69

          “bind rules adjusted” to me would be an adjustment, meaning if they aren’t supposed to bind, they won’t.

          Some decorations are ‘bound’ like for instance the 1cr ones but most if not all other decorations shouldn’t bind. This was more or less the explanation a dev gave me when I submitted a ticket when my extra sandcrawler was ‘bound’ after consuming one.

          So without reading to much into what was posted, they fixed some bind issues.

  • Hmm, so.. those that already conquered CZ would have to conquer it again in order to get both the title and achievement?

    • ManDingoCC6901

      They did say they were going to find a way to get the title and achievement to those who did conquer it… In a previous dev post.

      • That’s a relief. *-*

      • Ancaglon

        Nothing to compensate those of us who lost Alderaan 3 days after we conquered it, and hence lost out on 50+ named commanders, and hence frameworks, in the weeks since. Great Job.

  • Dustbunnie

    Another nerf to the CZ flashpoints? Why even bother calling them hardmodes at this rate. The patch notes also don’t mention any fix for the guild ships becoming inaccessible 90% of the time.

    • Ree

      Do note that HMs aren’t supposed to be done with 180 gear, but rather with 162 gear. Usually people are overgeared when doing them, but that doesn’t mean that they should be changed for those people so that the people who it was intended for in the first place can’t do them anymore.

      Maybe they should introduce NiM FPs, so that better geared people will have something kinda challenging to do other than ops.

      • PlayLoud

        The only problem I have with that is the fact that it’s already hard to find a GF group for a FP at the moment. If they added another tier, it would distribute the people queuing even further.

      • Quasi

        148 blues.

  • Amer1990

    what Jean resp0nded I am bl0wn away that any b0dy can m@ke 7O11 in a few weeks 0n the c0mputer . M0re Inf0……..

    Click Here……….

  • Jerry

    They buffed the CZ FPs so they couldn’t be solo’d and now they nerf them back down again… erm…OK…

    • Quasi

      Healer with dps companion can still solo them like a champ.

  • Fabulous

    why making fp’s even easier? i want to see hard fp’s like Lost Island was pre-nerf 🙁

    • Bo Vanston

      they’re not making it easier, just making it faster. enemies with way too much health are just tedious, not difficult.

      • Fabulous

        I agree with you, but I think they should make some fp’s somewhat hard so you really get a nice experience from it not just a blend taste of simple boss mechanics.

        • Havran

          They’re not easy. You are just overgeared. Get some nice green equipment with your friends and you’ll see.

          • Fabulous

            Well, when you finish your oricon storyline you’ll be (almost) half purple geared. Why would u go for green eq in that case i wonder…

            • Ancaglon

              Doing that Oricon storyline with level 50-53 greens is no joke whatsoever…

              (I didn’t have any problem with it because my characters were mostly already 50 when Makeb was released, and the rest at least had Campaign gear in Legacy shells, but on my daughter’s Preferred account it was brutally hard solo).

              • fp

                you should be 55 with a decent string of mixed blues and purple from after you finish Makeb, then Oricon shouldnt be much of an issue since they give you Basic purple gear after every starting quest.

      • Vess

        Yeah, killing the Jedi/Sith at the end of KDY is always long and tedious, without being challenging. His health really could use some reduction…

      • Julmay

        the HM droid boss in labs was just too long. it wasnt that it was difficult or mechanic heavy. it was more like cutting down a redwood with a butter knife. i am glad they took off some of his health. make the fights interesting, not long. cut his health in half and have some droids come heal him along with the attacking droids. do something other than have us beat on him forever.

    • Vess

      The PUG groups I am in regularly have problems with the CZ FPs on HM. Especially with the droid. SM is easy, but nerfing it a bit on HM is a good idea.

      What I don’t understand is why nerfing the cores in Meltdown. They already die very fast. They should have nerfed a bit the mini-bosses there, instead – their mechanics are challenging enough even on SM.

      • piackanamepickachu

        I never wiped with a PUG group (and I play flashpoints always with PUGs) at these bosses.

        Wipes only happen at Chief Zokar and Enhanced Duneclaw.

        “They should have nerfed a bit the mini-bosses there, instead”

        You are right. If you want to speed up the meltdown fight, you have to nerf these. Reduce their number or HP.

      • Ta

        Seems like those PUGs need to get better gear or need to learn their rotations. The boss is terribly easy, no need to nerf him just because some players are bad. If the group doesn’t work out, get a new dps.

        • Vess

          LOL. Well, good luck with that. Like it or not, the vast majority of players are average or bad – not good. So, that’s what I get in the vast majority of PUGs. (The other day an incompetent tank caused us to wipe SIX TIMES on Cademimu, HM. Had that been a dps, we would have kicked him out after the second wipe, but tanks are so difficult to find…) So, Bioware has a choice – dream that the players will get much better and have the majority of players not use the content they consider “too hard” or dumb down the content so that it matches the level of the vast majority of players while the “elite few” rage. Guess which choice is a more realistic one?

  • Vodorlo

    Nvm.

    • Not with this patch, it is with 2.10.2

  • Drool Bear

    No mention of the slot machine in this patch. bummer

    [Edit] Just found out Slot macines are coming 2.10.2, from the dev tracker. Woot

  • Strew2203

    WTF with the jedi knight mail are they trying to hide that they really intended to make Revan die in that Foundry fp ??

    • Graf von Geiger

      The mail in question refers to one of the major plot NPCs of the Jedi Knight Arc on Corellia. Light-side choice: They live, Dark-side choice: They Die. or something to that effect.

      It’s has nothing to do with Revan.

    • p4v7

      silly you

  • Havik79

    4 hours for that?.

    • Chakra Kusanagi

      Probably not… they had alot of problems with lag and latency yesterday and the day before, so that’s probably why they have the long downtime.

      • Hiroshi Perez

        That is true as I have experienced this issue frequently and ended up having a loading screen.

  • darkfather

    Could the Bounty Contract week die already so we can have other events instead? Really tired…

    • Vess

      Well, I happen to enjoy it.

      • darkfather

        The same event over and over again when there are 3 other events they could be cycling in instead of the SAME one every month? Seriously…what exactly is there to enjoy about traveling all the way to planets just to kill the same few guys, a wasted time sync, then traveling back to fleet to turn in? It’s BORING. I’d rather do dailies.

        • Vess

          It is short, easy and available only one week per month. I guess you prefer ops or FPs that are long and the same day in, day out? To each their own.

    • Quasi

      Its darkmoon faire for swtor, just enjoy it for what it is. It has no effect on the availability of other events like gree or rak, and sometimes even comes up at the same time.

  • Ben Fleuss

    Yay for the fix to the Makeb bonus missions. Nevermind that they should have noticed that when first reducing mob numbers …

  • piackanamepickachu

    A patch without any exciting fix.

    • Sivis

      A bug mainly with stacked items. Consuming 1 would bug and make the other(s) bound, when it shouldn’t have.

      As usual for the EU we’re screwed over as BW will likely take longer than 4 hours (as usual) and it’ll be way past 15:00 (UK time) before we can contemplate logging in.

    • Chakra Kusanagi

      There are also some decorations that couldn’t be sold on the GTN despite not being bound to you.
      Like the Holokiosk.

      So it might be a fix for that.

  • George Blair

    How about fixing the loading times? Good Lord, I can log on, click a character on Tatooine, start lunch, brush my teeth, let the dog out, and STILL come back to a loading screen.

    And really? That droid was “too hard”? Huh?

    • copper

      its just like lost island, nerf it till no one wants to do it any more. I like LI before they changed anything in it.

      • Malkin

        prelude to nightmare fps? i wouldn’t mind a real challenge, maybe do hm tactical? really the whole flashpoint system in this game is still weird… since they are reinventing interfaces already, it would be nice if the devs took a serious relook at the whole queue screen. how about clearing up the whole dps backlog in the queue with 8m fps with a single tank, and support roles for those that can offheal, and allow a reverse bolster (diminish? or maybe less interesting mentor) to allow someone overleveled to queue and be brought down to level of the flashpoint. just ideas.

    • Ethior

      seems like it’s your HDD that’s the problem

      • Chill

        Nope. I just played a few other games just to compare… wow, eve, lotro, … ok, except for eve those games don’t look as good as swtor, or have the same supersmooth animations, but the loading times… sheeesh…

        I blame the 32 bit client. If they could just use all that memory…

        However swtor:unleashed isn’t really improving the loading times by anything measurable.

  • JustLilMe

    All this nonsense while sage is still broken and textures are still garbled…

    • Kyuzo

      don’t forget mount mud flaps…. honestly the preview shows it correctly but they can’t make that the reality look as well?

      • JustLilMe

        I`m not forgetting 🙂 . But one “no collision” issue isn`t quite equal to sage`s Force Potency charges getting consumed when other dots are present – since 2012, Unfettered Trench Coat “big butt” bug on body type 2, which is since August 2013, the new Xoxaan set and the gloves which show gloves, but on actual equip you have empty hands AND garbled textures on the Sanctified Caretaker boots.

  • Kyuzo

    this game has been out for awhile and butt/mud flaps while riding mounts hasn’t been fixed… simple code switch is all they have to do… the preview of the mount shows the correct look.

    • Chakra Kusanagi

      Physics is disabled in preview, that’s why it’s “working” there…

      So are you suggesting they disable physics when we are mounted?
      Because that’s the “quick fix” you are referring to.

  • Al’arra

    The server maintenance has been extended with no ETA … Not a good week for BW, not at all.

    • Sivis

      Week? Year(s)* 😉

  • George Blair

    Wow. So 4 hours + simply to reinstate old content (BH)?

    • Ancaglon

      BH week doesn’t require a patch. They just “fixed” other stuff (translation: broke stuff that was working, e.g. the transport cooldowns).

  • Ibn

    infinite loading screen anyone?

    • p4v7

      It’s been going for 3 months. Since the last patch some people say that they disconnect more than usual. Bioware still not addressed this issue. That’s sad. It’s one of the issues that is ruining the game and they don’t even respond :/

  • Certz

    is anyone else having QT cooldown issues? I bought the three Legacy Travel levels to reduce the CD to 10 minutes and it has worked right up until this patch. Now it is back to 30 minutes.

    • Usagnoir

      I am having the same problem and several of my other friends… Hope they fix it soon

      • They are fixing it tonight

  • Letsjet

    So when do we get Stronghold Slot machines?

    • Sivis

      In 2.10.2

      • Nozyspy .

        How do you know it will be in 2.10.2? Did the devs say when it would be?

        • Yes Eric mentioned that it would be in 2.10.2

  • Furiel

    Has anyone else experienced a recent 1% increase in accuracy? Maybe after this patch.
    I now have a 5% buff. 1% comp + 3% sage skills + 1%?
    I’m not complaining, just wondering if I should re-gear or wait for a fix. 🙂

    • It is a bug with double companion stats buff causing you to get double the HP, accuracy etc.
