Here are a collection of Bioware response to the major bugs of Patch 4.0.

Help I lose all my C2-N2 affection | 10.22.2015, 04:04 PM

The 1 C2 that I had a customization on is no longer able to equip that customization.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble! We are looking into remaining companion issues following 4.0a now (I’m looking at you, too, Xalek).

Two questions for from the team: Have you started Chapter 1 of KOTFE yet? Which Customization are you not able to equip?
Thanks!

Ability Missing after 4.0A Patch (Medical Probe) | 10.22.2015, 04:05 PM

Hey Medical Probers!

We’re looking into this. Thank you for your reports!

Glad you were able to find a workaround! We’ll still look into the overlying issue so that you don’t have to reset the Chapter, though.

Utilities cannot be set after a spec swap | 10.22.2015, 04:10 PM

Hey hey!

Re-logging does appear to resolve the issue, and it’s a solid workaround while we investigate.

Thanks!

Companion Locator Terminal | 10.22.2015, 04:14 PM

Hey everyone,

The Companion Locator Terminal is bugged as many have guessed. We didn’t have a fix ready for it in time for 4.0a, but are aiming for 4.0.1, which will most likely be on Tuesday with the release of the expansion.

Andronikos Revel Cannot dual wield blasters any longer? | 10.22.2015, 04:23 PM

We are currently working on getting Andronikos and Corso looked at! I don’t have any ETA on a change, but it’s on our radar.

  • I like new story very much, but not Star Fortress “FP”. I thought kuat was boring. What were they doing all the year. Disappointed pretty more than satisfied with expansion.

    • Confused

      So the story you like very much but not the new FP so that translates into more disappointed than satisfied about the expansion? The FP is such a small part overall in the scheme of the xpac. The story is the majority. How does that translate to an overall poor rating? That’s like saying “The pizza I bought tasted awesome, but the little plastic holder in the middle I didn’t like. So overall, I’m not a fan of the pizza”

      • Frebu

        The holder makes or breaks the presentation. If it is just an inch off center the whole pizza may as well be thrown away.

      • Holyfrog

        Hey without that plastic holder the box touches the top of the pizza and when you open it the cheese goes with it. So if you don’t like that thing your stupid and are no longer allowed to play SWTOR.

  • Naq

    Crap…I sold Torchy. I am going to be in deep poodoo if Corso finds out. Which he wont, cause he’s a droid now.

    • TMDarth11

      Don’t worry. Here’s another spare *passes an extra Torchy to you*.

    • Darth Twinge

      Just blame Gus Tano

  • Swelke

    Seems like Vicious Slash is gone for marauders. I don’t know if this is working as intended or a bug, but I don’t remember reading any developer notes saying that ability was being removed. Also, I’m pretty sure Juyo Form was available regardless of your spec, but now it’s disappeared from my quickbar too.

    • Darth Twinge

      Not sure how far you played but for me (as a Corruption Sorcerer) several skills were removed from the quickbar at the start of kotfe but by chapter 2 or 3 they were restored. Some were class combat abilities, some were legacy (ie sacrifice) some were cosmetic (like pets and stuff) So probably just buggy.

      • Swelke

        Nah I’ve finished chapter 9 and all, but Vicious Slash (and Juyo Form) have been gone all the time, from beginning to end. Not that it’s a very relevant ability when your spec is Carnage, but I’ll check tonight if I still don’t have it as Annihilation.

        • torplayer9000

          it will be there when you switch to another spec

          im vengeance jugg and my shicho and smash dissapeared but came back when i switched to rage

          they removed abilities that get replaced by other abilities

          massacre replaces vicious slash so thats why it dissapeared :]

          • Swelke

            That’s good to know, I guess they’re following the “Mastery” path to simplifying things for new players, so they always know which stance and ability to use, stuff like that. Thanks for the info!

      • Darkojin

        If you activated the optional tutorial (clicking the green checkmark when the help pop-up shows up) the game will do that. They remove abilities for a little while and slowly give them back to you as a sort of ‘new to 60’ tutorial in case people want to use it if they just started with a fresh lvl 60 character. It is so they are not overwhelmed by all of the abilities you would have at 60, and can be turned off at any time. Also, this was in the patch notes.

        • Darth Twinge

          No, I did not activate the tutorial and the abilities it chose to remove seemed odd and random, like Like Legacy Sacrifice was gone but Legacy Unity was not. some pets were removed from the bar, but others not. There was no logic or reason to it.

    • Corwin

      People who are screaming about disappearing skills – do you even realize that there are replacement abilities from dicipline tree? Madness sorcs screaming: Oh, where is my crushing darkness? Well bro, you have Demolish… To OP: Vicious slash is gone because you have Massacre! Are you serious when asking where is vcious slash? So you are saying you wanted to use vicious slash as a Carnage marauder? I don’t like saying this but… L2P, for god’s sake. One time, read your discipline tree.

      • Swelke

        Quoting myself from an earlier comment: “Not that it’s a very relevant ability when your spec is Carnage”. Just like I don’t need Juyo Form either. I’ve never said I needed those abilities, I was just wondering why the devs hadn’t notified these changes before doing them, and therefore that’s why I thought it was a bug. So next time, before accusing someone of not knowing their discipline tree (even though there have been no trees per se since 3.0), try to pay a bit more of attention.

        • Unperson

          Actually, they did notify them. The ability replacement system was explained back when they posted the Combat Changes Blog (http://dulfy.net/2015/10/02/swtor-combat-changes-in-fallen-empire/) and possibly earlier in the livestreams.

          Also, the Massacre description clearly reads “Replaces Vicious Slash”. So, “try to pay a bit more attention”. ๐Ÿ™‚

    /ducks

  • Jeid

    And yet again so called “Early Access” turned out to be nothing but a glorified beta test

    • Corwin

      Heh, I haven’t expected anything else. It was like that every time.

    • Frebu

      Why else would they give you an extra week with the game? Most Early Access last 2-3 days and are down for 50% of that because the servers couldn’t handle the load.

    • Kenn

      Welcome to internet gaming in general. You must be new here.

  • Donut

    ;_; fix the 51+ artifect gear and cc crystals for prefs and f2p already plz ;_;

    • Holyfrog

      Saying that here gets you nowhere.

      • Donut

        it doesnt where we prefs say it the devs will never hear it guess it will be broken forever

        • Donut

          *matter

  • Akaiah Magnus Trismegisto

    Another thing that broke was the decoration Minefield Marker, as does the red light. ๐Ÿ™

    • Darth Ji’inx

      My GTN Terminal and both banks can’t be clicked in my Yavin stronghold. Could these be related? Try the light in a different stronghold and see if it works there.

      • Darkojin

        I just added a wall mounted GTN terminal to my Yavin stronghold earlier today, and it works fine. Ditto with guild bank and legacy storage (didn’t have a cargo hold to test). Have you tried picking up those items and placing them again? Might fix it.

        • Darth Ji’inx

          Tried it, didn’t work. Been using the ones in my other strongholds for the meantime.

  • DaGhostDS

    I guess they still have quality issues in this patch.

  • Adam Wright

    All my companions spawned weaponless and without pants on. I guess they all decided to have an orgy during the 5 year time jump. The weapons and pants were mailed to me via item recovery. Still a funny bug.

    • Az

      Do you recall if the mail had an expiry date?

    • Kenn

      Ya know, I had the same problem and thought the same thing. Until I looked at Skadge. I refuse to believe he was involved in any orgy whatsoever. >.<

    • Sarigar

      All companions RSVP’ed to the Pants Party.

    • Delphine

      I decided that my companions had fought and crafted well, and thus had now earned the right to wear pants.

    • tigs

      Even more fun; as they are supposed to be geared without gear for visuals, I had taken all of theirs. It was an interesting dream with all of them in their underwear.

  • Joe Falittie

    Still no responses about all the bugs with Legacy Datacrons, Voss Endurance is not shown but still shared, missing 10 Presence, and ~26 mastery missing from Datacrons collected and shown collected in Legacy.

    • Biofail

      For the datacrons just log in with all your different toons. It then showed that all were unlocked for me after I logged in with each toon that had gathered them.

      • Joe Falittie

        Read my post again, where i said…from Datacrons collected and shown collected in Legacy.

        • Holyfrog

          I love it when people are dicks to people that are trying to help.

          • Joe Falittie

            You must be his white knight, next time you see him tell him to read posts fully before responding. It will keep him from looking like an idiot. 8)

  • pt4life

    solid work around having to relog to set utilities? are you fucking joking bioware… how about do some QA you fuckin sorry ass developers

  • Iain Brown

    Apparently 4.0a allows Imperials access to the Senate District. I suppose it makes it easier for them to gank lowbies as opposed to waiting on Tatooine. /facepalm

    • Joe Bauer

      there isn’t really ganking anymore unless you get caught up against a group…they should all be within level range of you in general with the level system updated.

      • Frebu

        Except the companion scaling, a real “new” player wont have the presence buffs.

        • zenight

          The there’s the whole “I have expertize gear on and you don’t” factor.

    • Lineinfantry

      It’s resacking of the coruscant

    • Darkojin

      Still trying to figure out how that works, cause even on my Jugg I don’t have access to any Pub worlds after finishing the expansion story.

  • KaymakliBlue

    Any one else having a weird bug with Mako? she keeps giving me All Work and no Play as a quest but its blank and I can’t continue to talk to her even though she’s got the talk icon, also Vector is saying Kaliyos lines in combat

    • zenight

      Have the same issues, I believe the Makon one is related to the fact conversations are unlocked based on progression and not influence.

      The other is likely a result of homogenising all companions combat skills, they probably share a code and the lines were added to Vector by accident.

    • Kat

      I am also having having the quest issue with Mako. When I looked it up on the forums it seems that female BH’s are having the issue.

  • I had a hilarious bug where treek had my C2-N2 customization equipped. I did a few conversations with Treek I hadn’t unlocked before, before I realized it was the C2-N2 customization that completely replace Treek.

    • Bradley Seefeldt

      Same here lol what not funny is I never got the trek customization back and the butler customization didn’t work on c2 anymore

  • Carsti

    Treek is missing the customization she wore before the update. The other two from the pack are safe and sound in the bank. Funny thing: I reported a bug via /bug and some obviously automated answer-droid suggested to file a ticket via /bug. Viscous cycle…

    • Underdawg

      I have the same bug with Treek. Every one of my Treek customizations are
      gone. I was using three from the pack and one from the Bounty Hunters
      Guild… as well as a bowcaster from the Bounty Hunter Guild. All items
      gone. Sent the bug report and was told to send a bug report from the email response. I am peeved at this. I paid cash to buy the customizations. I want them back.

      • Carsti

        Mine were in the mail today. Chances are, you’ll get them back, too.
        Look for mails with subject “Item Recovery.” As far as I understood it,
        all worn customization were bugged away, all those in the banks stayed
        put. But they seem to have fixed it in 4.0A

  • Kenn

    Had a situation where a couple of lvl 56 crafted barrels suddenly became lvl 60, and my lvl 56 character could no longer use the weapon until a new barrel was placed. Makeb platforms are a bad place to be when you suddenly discover your gun is too sexy for you.

  • Sarigar

    I think they should celebrate the “Treek Abomination” bug by doing a cyborg customization of Treek. Which I’m sure they’d put in a Cartel pack as a Gold Rare.

    • Holyfrog

      They could put it with that new vendor in the Bazaar next to the Hutt, that sells an orobird and a fighter model. Sell it for 1 credit.

      • Naq

        :O NEW PETS! *runs off to the bazaar*

        • Shannon Thalhammer

          lol ive never understood why people love the pets in this game…I loved them in SWG but there they had a point.. everytime i get a pet I sell them cheap, im sure that makes someone happy

          • Holyfrog

            They would be cool if they stayed with you. I always forget them when I die or qt or go to the fleet or whatever it is that makes them leave. It would be cool if they buffed you in some way.

            • Vess

              They used to stay with you. Then, at some patch, they broke it (or maybe intentionally changed it) and now they disappear at phase shift (e.g., when you board or disboard your ship).

        • Holyfrog

          Did you get them? It’s kind of a weird vendor I’m not sure why he’s there just for those two pets.

  • Sadriel_Fett

    I keep reading about all the companion gear problems people are having and keep thinking to myself, I’m glad I didn’t listen to Bioware and decided to strip off all my toons and companions gear before the patch. So far, everything did what it was supposed to, sitting inside my inventory and cargo bays, on the toons I’ve logged on to. This stuff would have driven me freakin’ nuts. I feel for you guys. This kind of sucks right now.

    • Infernus

      I did exactly the same thing…only problem I had were the ship droids with customization’s that I left on and that fixes itself once you hit chapter 9.

      • Sadriel_Fett

        Sometimes it pays to be a little wary and cautious. When they usually specifically say “this thing” won’t surely happen (everyone knows that just jinxed it)…..yeah, better off to prepare for it, then.

  • Aiko

    Companion Locator Terminal? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Erm.. where? I didn’t finy anything like that.. and what is it for?

    • Holyfrog

      Uhh its to locate companions. It literally says it in the name. Do you think it makes your alt fresh coffee in the morning?

      • Frebu

        Which isn’t what it does at all. Basically it is a work around to get your previous class companions not introduced in the first set of chapters(i.e. the chapters we currently have access to). The companions being with you is considered non cannon and will (probably) be introduced later in the story. This is not a way to unlock new companions. Also Holyfrog is a dick.

        • Holyfrog

          I NEVER said it was a way unlock new companions. Show me EXACTLY where I said that. It does what I said it does, it LOCATES your old companions. Also Frebu is an idiot.

          • Frebu

            Right and it is not like there is another system in place to locate new companions and this could be confused as part of that instead of the workaround that to regain old companions early that it is. Oh wait, there is. But instead of explaining that you decided act like a superior dick when somebody asked a question.

            • Holyfrog

              It’s not a “workaround”. A “workaround” is a way to do something in a different way then is meant. Like the respec bug, where if you respec your skills don’t stay selected you have to log out, log back in and then select them. The companion locator terminal is for “locating companions” the way it was intended, there is no other way to locate them. It does what I said it does. Nothing I said was wrong.

              • Frebu

                It is a workaround, they are not releasing the entire story for several months so to allow you to use your no longer currently obtainable companions they created a terminal to non cannon bring them back into your party. It is a work around for the story not being complete which causes your companions to be locked away for future installments. It is not in any way used to obtain cannon characters as there is an entire other system for that and the terminal has nothing to do with it. But GG lack of basic logic.

    • RandomDancingMan

      If provides you the ability to re-acquire your pre-KotFE companions (Kira, Ashara, Vector, etc). But you will have to complete a small, possibly short, quest for each to get them back. It’s bugged right now, and we’ll have to wait for the 27th for it to works.

  • MasterSaim

    hei! i spent a lot of credit to acquire the hawkeye +41 lvl10 crystal and a lot of CC for open in the collection to my alter. I’m preferred and you now “block” this crystals with the auth artifact. I can accept it, but give me back my CC, i have payed with real dollars for that CC,

    • Naq

      • MasterSaim

        u have right, sorry i was just angry ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Secundum

      It was to bring them inline with other +41 crystals, which are all artifact authorisation.
      Basically, if you’re not a true player (sub) Bioware don’t give a fuck.

      • Darth-Robin

        no its not, its a bug that bioware acknowledge it on reddit

        • Secundum

          Oh, that’s a huge shame. Would have been nice for +41 Crystals to actually be hard to use again.

    • Holyfrog

      You NEVER have to spend CC to unlock a crystal in your legacy all you need is a legacy weapon. Put it in the weapon and send it to your alts, take it out for like 10k and its unlocked on that alt. Rinse, repeat. 10k is a drop in the bucket in this game do 2 dailes and you have it plus a little left over for the next time.

  • Naq

    I didn’t even like Iresso, even while romancing him, he just seemed super plain. Then I did Rishi, hit the class quest and there was something the voice actor brought to it that just suddenly brought him into the realm of interesting. Then I got an ingame mail message and was like “Omg he is the best companion ever!”….I am almost sorry I turned him into a droid now.

    • Secundum

      How can you turn him into a droid?

      • Holyfrog

        Cybernetic gear. Not really a droid but some people like to play.

  • Cathrine Wendt

    I am bailed on Darth Marrs destroyer on one toon and now keeping him around. Having fun slapping him and fought Revan with 2 Darth Marrs lol

    • Joe Bauer

      how do you keep Marr as a companion. I was under the impression he died at the beginning of the xpansion.

      • RandomDancingMan

        Have not tried it yet…but maybe he used a Fleet Pass to go back to Fleet when he got Marr on his flagship?

        • Cathrine Wendt

          Just leave to your guild ship or stronghold. Of course you won’t go on to the story and gain anymore of the new companions but you still can level to 65 buy new gear. You still can travel to zakuul and I Odessen with starship and keep original companions but you can’t access the content like star fortress ect. And you can’t go back to the chapter by pushing play and it takes you back to where you left off in chapter. I got Marr on a toon I don’t plan to right away take through the chapters. :p

  • Dรดt

    Any word on what the new crit curve is?

  • Harvst
  • Miriah

    Day three, and the pain is real. I am slowly going through withdrawal from Corso, and it’s every bit as painful as I thought it would be. When I read the letter he sent, I broke down. The wanna be’s they stuck on my crew suck, and now I’m being told that even as the Commander of the Allied Forces, I can’t see my love until next week. I am seriously considering hunting this Musco fellow down, as he blatantly lied to me about my Corso.

    Until Tuesday, I am forced to continue my sad campaign with a small astromech, as he is the only current companion I can stand to have around.

    • Secundum

      Where is your love for Pierce?

    • Cyanocitta

      I know your pain, I miss my Khemy-poo…. ;(

    • Ben Fleuss

      I am shaking with fits. Every time I log onto my sorcerer, he has random fits of Dark Side-itis and lightbulbs and glass panes explode around him. I need my padawife Ashara back :c

  • michael fearless

    Got my companions back sans pants and weapons. And after today’s patch I suddenly get all their gear in the mail. Which was never missing, so now I’ve got a lot of gear twice over. I’ve been selling it and wondering if it would get me in trouble, but it was their idea, so not likely? But still okay money on some cases.

    It’s been fun dressing them all in each others clothes though, and surprisingly more often than not, it looks better on someone else.

    I’m kind of glad I started the new expansion with my one auto lvl 60 toon until the kinks are more worked out with it. Just talking to (and finding pants for) all these companions who won’t shut up has been keeping me busy enough…

    • Secundum

      Everyone got the original starting gear of all companions in the mail (it looks like you kept them in their starting gear-a lot of players ditched it due to needing to gear them).

      • michael fearless

        I actually did gear quite a few of them, but there’s clearly some I didn’t.

        In retrospect, I’m glad.

  • Kiri

    I’m hating this new stronghold companion placement. Why can I place some new companions or followers that I get, but others I can’t? And some of the ones I CAN place, randomly disappear and turn into holoprojections!! Wtf?!?! WHY?

    The story is really good but a lot of stuff in terms of companions, gear and strongholds is pissing me the fuck off

    • Secundum

      Companions turning into holoprojections has been a thing since the start though….Companions are fine, gear is fine, and strongholds still function as per normal.

      • Kiri

        No they haven’t. I’m a stronghold master. The only time they used to turn into holo’s were if they were currently summoned or if they were laid down by another toon.

        NOW you lay them down, you don’t have them summoned and they turn into holo’s.

        Companions are clearly not fine because there’s no real clear reason of having an “alliance” with as many characters as possible.
        Their gear isn’t fine because you can only customize half of them. If they won’t let us customize the main toons’ appearances, they could at least give us some Customizations like they did before, except instead of changing the face they woud change the gear.

        • Secundum

          Ah, gotcha. Misunderstood what you said. (Holoprojections were dumb anyways).

          • Kiri

            I use them for holocalls. I have Talos and Scourge standing on Hypergate rings talking to Malavai and the Pureblood Sith, respectively. I wish you could switch them on and off

            • Gabo

              Calm down, that’s called a bug :/ It’ll be fixed don’t worry

            • Secundum

              Yeah. I put treek in a cage, but it looks bad if she’s a holo.

              • Holyfrog

                Lol One of those Massasi cages, or the BH cage. If it was the Massasi one I’m sure she could get out. She left that hologram to try to trick you. She’s not too bright after all she is just a little smarter them the average bear.

              • Secundum

                Massasi. Yavin stronghold, so gotta go massassi.

        • Holyfrog

          Lol stronghold master. How long did you have to be an apprentice before you became a master?

      • Patrick Cross

        I thought the only time companions turned Holo-Projection were if they were companions not of your current class. For example my SW stronghold on Kaas physically shows my placed companions, but when I visit with my Sorc those companions appear as holos. So maybe the one’s turning into Holo’s are from other classes than your originals?

        • Kiri

          not anymore. Now even some that are from your current toon turn holo

  • Kiri

    Also, can someone tell me if there are bonuses/drawbacks to recruiting as many/little amount of followers as possible? What’s the point of them anyway? It hasn’t really been explained as far as I know.

    • Secundum

      The point is for the story-no drawbacks/benefits for having anything other than 1.

      • Kiri

        That literally made no sense.

        • John Kosto

          It made perfect sense. If you want it rephrased, here it is: “YOU HAVE NOTHING TO GAIN OR LOSE, REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY COMPANIONS AND FOLLOWERS YOU HAVE IN YOUR ALLIANCE”

          • Kiri

            it didnt make perfect sense. What you wrote made perfect sense.

            • Secundum

              I’m guessing that English isn’t your first language?

                ^You tell me if that’s the answer of someone who’s first language is English. That’s catastrophic sentence structure. What you wrote is something you’d expect from someone who was dropped on their head repeatedly as a baby six year-olds.

                Maybe if it was written clearly and concisely, without misusing hyphens, and without using numbers in place of words…… then I would have understood it without having to re-read it forty times.

                What you wrote is more of a math equation than a sentence.

              • Secundum

                And yet somebody else understood it perfectly.

    • Holyfrog

      The point of more then one comp is for crafting/gathering. Since they can all tank/DPS/heal you only need one for killing shit.

  • SupRun

    Will any influence I have with a companion (say, a trooper with Yuun or 4x) stay the same when acquired afterward or is it reset?

    • Becca

      I ran a trooper and with 4X I got my 10k influence, but Yuun got bugged and was at zero.

      • SupRun

        Noted, thank you.

      • Bantherny

        Same here. 4X was still were i left him but Yunn was at 0. I worked like crazy to get them maxed for the achievements and now this……..

  • KShrike

    I like how Bioware expects players to be able to do tactical Korriban Incursion without high level heal skills.

    No puddle? No roaming mend? Wonderful! Heal for the second boss! Enjoy hell…. and unplayability….

    • Achrius

      Yeahhh I had no issues with this at all. My heal character has all abilities, and when my friend and I went in with just us and companions our companions healed us so much we barely dropped 1/4 hp. Not to mention if its your first time through you can summon the solo bot and your like God mode.

      • Chyron HR

        Yes, companions with any significant amount of influence and/or other large presence bonuses are now vastly more powerful than actual player characters. That doesn’t really help people queuing for FPs because you get stuck with four human beings (who can be as low as level 15) and no room to summon a companion

        • Vess

          Actually, that’s a bug. The companions are so powerful because their mainhand weapon is not scaled down. Expect them to be nerfed soon.

      • KShrike

        >All heal abilities
        >companions

        But what happens when you queue up for a tactical flashpoint as a level 38 sorcerer and get Korriban Incursion, a flashpoint clearly intended for endgame even in tactical mode?

        • Holyfrog

          Let me ask you this on this Tact FP that you were healing. Was it during the boss fights that you had a problem healing? Because you are not supposed to need a healer for that. That’s what the kolto stations are for. You should be able to run it with 2tanks and 2 DPS if you want. It amazes me how healers come into those FPs and heal rathe then use the kolto stations that give full health to everyone.

          • KShrike

            So since everyone’s being derogatory, yes…. I was using the kolto stations. In fact, because the DPS’s were standing in fire the whole time, I had to use them on cooldown….
            The bosses was not where I had a problem. The problem, surprisingly, was trash. The bosses were exhausting though, because the DPS was just… super low.

            Also, I had to switch to heals because we could not do it as four DPS. Whichever DPS had the first boss would take way too much damage for the kolto stations to keep him up. Only with sustained single target heals (which I could do) could I keep the current “tank” up.

            Perhaps the next time I do it I will stick on DPS and just solo the boss after everyone dies by running to the kolto stations every time and maybe get a single GCD off before being brought to low health again.

            • Secundum

              Sounds like it wasn’t an issue with the healing, it was just DPS stupidity.

  • Verloder

    Another awfull bug concidering companion placement in SHs, old companions are now new old companions.. Example: Two versions of Pierce, Leutenant and Major. You can gear him up, then you place him in the SH and.. he’s naked, because game thinks that it is Leutenant, basicly another character via game logic. Companions shuddering and turning, vanishing on their spots when placed in SH as well as new companions are not customizable, which is funny concidering how much BW publicly made a huge inclanation towards gearing up companions visually… disappointment. I want to get loads of companions, gear them up and play SIMS in my SH. *Nods solemnly*

  • Strew

    this game is a joke they release a patch and they break 50 things at the same time close this game or change the engine already what a disgrace…

    • LorgrenBenirus

      Better then anything you’d make. And don’t make up problems, most of the things, and really by far most of the things work. There have been no game breaking bugs and aside some minor bugs I encountered myself, everything and worked well and expansion is very good.

    • Unoshi

      Every content a developer releases brings bugs regardless of engine. Look at wow, gw, aion, wildstar, rift etc… Every patch that goes into live will run into problems that didn’t exist while being scripted and tested. With that said not every bug existed after live some already while being scripted and have been overlooked but changing an engine won’t ever stop a patch bug free.

      • BookerT

        Andryah, is that you?
        PTS is up for ages, but most of the people that are there are wanking on shiny stuff instead of reporting bugs…

        • Unoshi

          yeah I know pts people just play instead of looking for bugs and what not. But I was more referring to the developer testing phase before they bring it up on pts.

          Now who’s this Andryah you mistaken me for? ๐Ÿ˜€ another dread master fan?

          • BookerT

            Nope, some chick on SWTOR official forums that was always defending Bioware ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Still, each early access cannot be released with game breaking bugs (this one wasnt so bad but Rishi… huh…)

            • Unoshi

              Lol no I’m not her I’m just bit tired of seeing clueless people jumping on the blame train wit out any knowledge of said subject or whatsoever.

              But yeah rishi was one hell of a cluster fuck shah specially the tree wit food and stuff to summon the raptor

      • Ser JuJoo Guppy

        While I agree that bugs happen, I will politely disagree that this level of bug-inducing patches is common in the industry, as that is simply not true.

        New content updates, like 4.0 itself, are definitely bug-filled in many cases, as they are making drastic changes to the core game. Other studios still tend to out shine the TOR team in that respect, too, but one must consider the poorly constructed engine, as well as the relatively small dev team still dedicated to TOR.

        That said, they would be wise in the future to possibly delay release even an extra week if they are noting as many bugs as there were with 4.0, rather than just releasing as is. It’s bad for the players and the devs, as it discourages players which can lead to people quitting, which in turn leads to less profits & funding for the dev team to continue.

        Where I was disagreeing, though, was that patches addressing bugs like 4.0a, that ended up creating more bugs than it fixed, are a common occurance in the industry. I simply don’t buy that. In my experience, bug fixing patches generally do just that, and at most cause a couple directly related issues that are easily corrected. TOR patches, for whatever the reason, often end up causing fairly large bugs that seem to have no relation at all to the bugs that were fixed, and that is concerning.

        Sorry for the long-winded post (novel), I tend to try to make sure my point is clear heh.

        • Unoshi

          No I wasn’t referring to patches as 4.0 a those usually are being brought in to fix bugs and not create and yes other companies have better experience in downsizing the bugs that make it to live. I was more stating that no content being brought out comes without its bugs and the contents in referring to are mostly 4.0 and then all the way up to 4.1 4.2 etc.. Those will have bugs and some should never make it to live.

          And yes trying to exceed on an engine that not really to the standard we need it to be will create more bugs and a new engine will stabilize the game bit more but a new engine can never prevent bugs at all.

          Since it all depends on the team experience and the new patch being merged with live.

          My point is bugs happen and not in the way you thought i was referring to patches such as a b c etc but more the more the patches #.1 #.2
          And while bw seem to be making a cluster fuck of getting more bugs in then fixing it. Changing engines won’t really matter much as u said its a small team.

          But considering the transition from 3.0 to 4.0 in ways as addressing bugs listening and responding fast enough makes it seems that there’s still hope. Just hoping with kofte going live officially everything will be fixed . Fingers crossed. And don’t mind that. Not really a tldr post for me

    • Saplaks

      As i heard they don’t plan to upgrade engine at all…

    • Holyfrog

      “This game is a joke…..close this game or change the engine already.”

      A. If it’s such a joke and you think it should be “closed” why do you even bother to play?”
      B. They have already said they will never change the engine.
      C. That comment shows how ignorant you are about game development.
      D. Can I have your credits?

      • Strew

        A. I don’t play anymore since 2014 when they released shadow of revan the biggest shit I have ever seen full of exploits and broken as fuck. I only come here to see news in hoping they fix queue with pvp and since they only care about story now Seems I will never come back to this game. B. Everyone know that the hero engine they use is shit they keep adding content on top of content and break tons of things.. It’s clunky and can’t hold more than 10 people in one place without some problems.. They add a patch and armors disapear headwear bugs and people loosing their pants ?? That is just fucking stupid no other games break 50 things that they already fixed in the past then it comes back.. If you can’t see that the engine is the problem along with bad devs they don’t know how to fix things for good. C. You’re just another Bioware fanboys no point arguing with you.

        • Holyfrog

          You are not playing, you have no real knowledge of any bugs, you are here commenting on something you know nothing about. You’re saying they should change the engine, go ahead keep beating that dead horse. Like I said they have already stated THEY WILL NEVER CHANGE THE ENGINE. Call me a BioWare fanboy all you want if I wasnt I wouldn’t be playing this game. I don’t understand these people that think that is some kind of scarlet letter. I’m a realist, If I don’t like a game I quit, move on to something else and leave the community be. I don’t go on sites and bitch about a game I don’t play anymore. You are not invested in this game in any way, take your ignorant comments somewhere else.

          • Strew

            I seen enough and know enough since this game launched but thx. It’s simple people will always bitch about things to let people know things need to change because star wars need something better than this skeleton crew game.. I paid money for this game I can do whatever the hell I want if I’m not happy about how this game is handling things. You not understanding and thinking the game is perfect is the less of my concern.. In my book you’e the ignorant one still paying for this game when with your money they laugh and release broken ass patch.

            • Ser JuJoo Guppy

              Strew,

              Despite your poor grammar and formatting, and irate nature, you do have some valid points, mainly that this is one of the few games I can recall in all my years of gaming where simple patches fixing bugs generate more bugs than were fixed, and seemingly completely unrelated issues at that. I have to believe this is due to the Hero engine, and not dev incompetence. Which really sucks, because they are not about to swap the engine out, so in order to keep enjoying the game, these “fix 5 things break 15” type of patches are a fact of life sadly.

              You might try being a little more respectful & doing a little formatting of your post, and using at least basic grammar to make it less of a ‘rambling incoherent rant’ and more of a thought-out complaint. Its clear by you posting here that you care about this game regardless of whether you are still playing, most likely because you love Star Wars and want to see a virtual world like this be successful, populated, and running smoothly. And I think that’s something we can ALL agree on.

              You are not the only one frustrated by the Hero engine and its constant struggles to function sir. Just think your post out a bit and don’t be disrespectful to people, hopefully they will do the same to you and actually read your point(s) of view.

              • Naq

                I googled WoW bugs when I read this. They make the same complaints. They bitch that Blizzard never fixes their bugs, they complain that bug fixes make new bugs, personally I left that game for the community, but I remember them having some pretty game breaking bugs on new expansions and even just random updates. Its just mmo’s. Its a gargantuan unwieldy monolith of user interface, systems on top of systems and code crammed and crushed into other code. Worse, is that the staff on an mmo has higher turn around than on other games, and it suffers more updates and changes to code than other games….so yeah. Bugs. That’s a thing.

        • EyesOfGehenna .

          So if you stopped playing a year ago, why exactly are you still coming back here? I mean, sure it’s a free world, but if you hate it so much, why waste your time on it here?

          • Strew

            Maybe you should read what I just wrote you seem blind

  • Majkls

    Anyone having issues with the datacrons? I thought they were supposed to be legacy wide and retroactive, shouldnt it mean that once you collected all crons prior to 4.0, regardless on which toon, everyone in your legacy should have the stats from all crons? Or am I mistaken, cause i have half of the crons missing.

    • Stephen S. Bowman

      have to login all your characters first before they show up

      • Majkls

        cool ty

    • Gr3yStar

      you need to log in with the character that collected them for them to unlock in your legacy.

  • darksider

    i did the Nico alert but cant summon him as companion why?

    • Rob Ferret

      I used the instant Nico token before I read there was an achievement to get him in the story, but he is perfectly summonable for me. Need to click on the Fist icon to summon companions now.

  • Paulo Gomes

    LOOOL… I did the expansion once on my Mara. Been doing menial tasks and dailies and stuff on my Operative… Turns out I started running with Kaliyo, but decided to try Vector… Now he sounds like Kaliyo… I now have a custom transexual Vector following me around… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • DCeased

      The guy wears a bra, so this doesn’t really surprise me.

  • BookerT

    And again, as expected, early access turned out to be closed beta. GG Bioware…

    • Paulo Gomes

      Yeah, it’s actually worse to have Early Access, since by the time the expansion officially launches some of them will be corrected… But nothing I wasn’t expecting…

      • TattooHero

        Yes it was.

    • LorgrenBenirus

      Cry some more. Yeah there are issues, but most things work and the important things and only issues I’ve come across on my 3 plays so far have been minor. People are always so keen to whine, but keep their mouths shut to compliment something. Sad, really.

    • Holyfrog

      Everyone knows this already so why bitch about it? If you thought it would’ve different from SoR that’s you own fault.

      • TattooHero

        I have less issues with this than SoR when I needed a guildmate to beat Revan or instance hop to get the meat tree to work.

        This update in early access is cake.

  • Achrius

    Sucks they have thi s many bugs, but at least they are catching them before official launch comes ๐Ÿ™‚ So far I have loved all the changes. Even with level sync im OP as hell on low level planets. and that Jaessa as a healer…..DAMN!!

    • Secundum

      Yeah, considering that comps now do waaay more damage than players, level sync is almost pointless.

      • TattooHero

        The BBA bosses, not Kingpin, but the henchmen are easier now than before.

        Sorta sad in a way.

  • Vess

    Since 4.0 I’ve been unable to play at all. The launcher launches the game which then crashes to desktop with no errors. Repairing doesn’t help. Bitraider is disabled. Updating to 4.0a doesn’t help. My OS is Win7 Pro 64-bit. Judging from the 20+ pages of bugs in the SWtOR official bug forum, other people are having this problem as well, although in some cases they do get an error and some of them are experiencing it on Win10 machines. Support is not responding (gee, what a surprise).

    Man, I’m so glad I stopped giving money to these morons…

    • Secundum

      Run a virus check?

      • Vess

        LOL. I’m a computer virus expert. Seriously, that’s my job in real life. I assure you, my machine is not infected. You just have to browse the official bug forum and you’ll see several messages about the game crashing to desktop.

  • Rob Ferret

    The bugs come with having a fixed release day instead of saying “sorry guys, we need a bit more time”.
    I do hope they fix the companion summoning terminal, as this is one of the main reasons I have not played the new chapters yet, despite having early access. Also I did note I lost all my max affection with the ship droids too.
    Not to mention it has taken me two days to sort out my toons with crafting changes and all the gear I had no room for.

    • Holyfrog

      They have to have a fixed release day. I can just imagine the backlash that would occur if they pushed the release back saying ” there are some bugs we need to work out.” It would be a nightmare.

      • Rob Ferret

        It worked for CD Project Red with the Witcher, so if they come up and say we need a bit longer to make sure it is polished, fans tend to understand.

        • Holyfrog

          I would totally understand and appreciate that, but just look at the comments here and you’ll see how on edge a lot of people are over the tiniest things. That would make a lot of people explode even though it is a smarter thing to do.

    • David Lister

      What I don’t get is that SOR had some bugs sure, but they weren’t *nearly* this prevalent- nor this high-profile either. Same thing with Makeb, CZ-128, Oricon… etc, etc, etc.

      Kinda glad I only tried this on one of my “toss away” alts…

      • Rob Ferret

        Yeah, I am not taking any of my crafters into the new stuff until they fix the companion bug. I’ll just use my gatherers to try it out.
        I may wait until the official release when they give us another patch.

      • Naq

        This prevalent or high profile? Revan fight. Meat tree bottleneck…high profile enough it was commemorated with a piece of furniture. There is nothing so far that stops you from being able to complete the chapters, I’d say we’re ahead of the game. Ship droids not at max affection? Meh, nothing lost, you have like 19 companions now. All 6 of the ones from Star fortress join you at 10 Influence (equiv to old max affection)

    • Secundum

      Well, that’s pointless. Even if it was fixed, you lose all your old comps till you finish all the chapters anyway.

  • Serrot82

    Anyone noticed that Corso now can’t equip it’s loved Torchy?

    • errant_mind

      Yes, this! No pants, no Torchy. Poor Corso.

  • Matis

    I hope BW noticed that cartel market and expansion items now need an artifact authorisation and give no stats to people that have them. It’s really annoying bug, as you have to pay to use items you PAID for. I plan to sub near Christmas, as now I lack time to play, but I sometimes log on my alts, and they all have their weapons disabled. I’m sure that’s bug, ’cause crystals gave BW tones of money, and since you need authorisation to equip them most of the prefs and F2P will stop buying them. Also, most of the prefs bought expansion, so why should they pay again just to be able to play it.

    • errant_mind

      Tait confirmed on Reddit it’s a bug, yes. Hope they’ll fix it soon.

    • Holyfrog

      None of the preferreds “bought” the expansion. You have to buy a subscription to get the expansion. Therefore they would be subbed and be able to use that gear.

      • MatiS

        I was talking about SoR and RotHC. I bought both of them and can’t use level 51-60 gear now.

        • Decadus

          Same happens to me with my Section X Authorization for my WHOLE account,still waiting ticket since months ago.

  • Naq

    Solo’d my first Star Fortress last night, I didn’t read the whole guide cause I wanted to figure it out for myself…that last fight is pretty intense(took me a while to realise I needed to keep my solar buff up and use that other widget to debuff the boss). Dropping a note though because of the loot I got. The boss dropped a 208 tank barrel, so, there is definitely a way to get starter quality hilts/barrels outside of ops, just need to farm with a friend or solo star fortresses.

    • Sarigar

      Was that solo mode SF, Naq, or Heroic? What gear were you wearing?

      • Naq

        I wanted the Ithorian, and it was late at night, so I had to do Heroic, but I solo’d it. Before heading in, I grabbed my elite implants and earpieces, I picked up my ultimate offhand, and then replaced the mods and enhancements in all my gear with up to date 208/214 pieces. I kept my 6 piece set bonus armorings. I was still using my 192 hilt, and felt my contribution to killing things was pretty underwhelming, but I was still out healing most dmg(sage,healer). I brought HK at influence 14, and used him as dps, I found this useful on a lot of the boss fights with circle based aoe, most of the bosses don’t have boss immunity (the exarch does) so you can slow them, kite them, stun them, knock them all over, and interrupt them. And you will need too, they hit like a damn train. If I lost agro, HK was in deep trouble, but with the bosses focused on me, I could run em all over while HK casually evacuated their skulls with laser fire. There was a few fights where about 20% in HK would pull hard agro, I’d try using rescue but no dice the boss was locked in, if he died, I’d combat rez, he’d get up agro free and the fights were way easier like that. That is how I ended up beating the exarch at the end, she killed hk early on, I got him back up, had full agro, spent the rest of the fight running in circles avoiding aoe, interrupting her big cast “visions of Shazla” which summoned ghosts with low hp, force wave could clear them out a few at a time, so HK was free to keep up the dps while I handled the adds, and kited the boss.

        • Sarigar

          If you want to run any of them Empire side, let me know, be glad to help. I only have one character past Ch 9 right now, my Warrior. He can definitely use a hilt upgrade!

          • Naq

            I think I will do my sorc next then, will probably start them through this weekend. Then I can use their comms to finish upgrading my legacy armor that they both use.(sage an sorc)

            • Sarigar

              I’m not feeling a frenzy of motivation for this expansion (which is good), so I’m taking my time and focusing on one character for a bit. Not being able to craft near-endgame mods from schematics means there’s no reason to spend a lot of time on my crafter characters; I don’t have enough surplus comms to waste them trying to RE stuff.

              • Naq

                I just want one on each side so I can hang out with people on both sides if they need me for ops. I got lazy and didn’t find a guild before exp, so I gotta do that still too. Conquest.

              • Sarigar

                Eh… the tedium of having guildmates outweighs any possible benefits from having a guild. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t ever plan on having better than 216 gear on any character, and I can get that with drops and comms.

                I’m going to run a Rep side character through the story as well, just not sure who yet. Tank trooper or tank knight, most likely. Probably do that tomorrow night.

    • guest

      Solo’d the alderaan one on slinger in auged 192’s with a 40 inf ship droid. Took several tries as a 40 inf comp heals like a sonafabitch and i kept losing aggro chasing down the adds, and the boss would burst him down cuz he couldnt evade her big hits/got stunned.

      Moddable 208 purple belt dropped for me..

    • Secundum

      The way to get them is the way you get all starter equipment, ever. Just buy it from the Vendor using basic comms.

      • Naq

        Is that how you got your 186 weapon? Because last I checked, there were no vendor starting weapons last expansion. Same with this one, although yes, you can just plug offhand parts into your mainhand, I have my doubts that will still work after tuesday.

        • Secundum

          Oh, you mean mainhand? No, that can never be got from a vendor (just buy it from the GTN). And again, no, aside from the hilt, you can put all offhand parts into a mainhand.

          • Naq

            You have to stop correcting me incorrectly. Currently, you can pull the hilt out of an offhand and put it in a mainhand. This may be corrected in Tuesdays patch, but right now I have a 208 mainhand on my sage thanks to mastery, and sentinels I might try it with the 220 offhand. Also, mainhands were purchasable from vendors back in 1.0 and Makeb(needed faction).

  • Rammlog

    They better fix that i can add cosmetic gear to these new companions!

    • Vincent Uchiha

      indeed mate ๐Ÿ™ i wanna give lana adative gear ๐Ÿ™

      • Ironheart

        At least they need to make so we can dye and unify comps gear, like my Sorc crew always wears purple or purple and black, so…..

    • Vincent Uchiha

      hate it how everyone has the same looking lana

    • Holyfrog

      I’m kinda thinking that they aren’t going to change that. ๐Ÿ™ it eliminates the weird things that happen in cut scenes where they are wearing their headpiece when you have it toggled off or the dye doesn’t show up. It eliminates code if everyone’s comp is wearing the same thing. More streamlining like no class missions.

      • Paulo Gomes

        Yeah, I changed Lana’s lightsaber crystal to a Purple Cartel crystal I have unlocked… It didn’t show in the cutscenes, wich leads me to believe they are not going to let you change gear on these new comps…

        • Holyfrog

          Hmm , I think that confirms my suspicion.

        • Secundum

          Yeah, Blue saber Lana didn’t show qq.v(Also, what happened to the Orange saber she used in SoR?)

  • Matarile25

    Well, I knew BioWare would introduce new companions, but I didn’t knew that Slender-2V-Treek would be in the game. This is what happened to me when I summoned treek yesterday. I hope they fix this bug.

    • Naq

      “Greetings master! I just want you to know I found these rusty spoons to rub with my Salad Fingers!”

  • nefastus

    What about our companions losing ALL their unique skills, even in their primary roles? When will that “bug” be fixed? Some of the missing skills found by players:

    Lokin no longer transforms into a Rakghoul; Ensign Temple lost her
    Force abilities; HK and Treek are not even the same companions I and
    many others paid for; Vette lost her excavation charge ability, and
    therefore no longer exclaims “woohoo!” in combat; Ashara and LS Jaesa no
    longer have their force burst abilities; DS Jaesa no longer has her
    force lightning ability; Xalek no longer has his mini-thundering blast
    ability; Andronikos can no longer dual-wield pistols; Zenith no longer
    has his AoE sticky grenade ability; Lord Scourge, Xalek, and Khem Val no
    longer have their lightning punch or mini-death field abilities; Lt.
    Iresso lost his incendiary round ability; Bowdaar, Skadge, and Broonmark
    lost their ability to throw targets across the room; Akaavi and Torian
    lost all their fire-based attacks; Kaliyo lost her shotgun ability; last
    but certainly not least, Blizz can no longer use a zipline to get to
    his targets; Nadia no longer has her AOE signature move from the
    cinematics, that fit her theme of “ultra powerful but uncontrollable”

    Right now companions are just diferent skills and voices (sometimes when not bugged). It even ruins the point of the alliance system.
    They could just remove all and keep only the ship droids this way.

    • Cameryn

      Lokin does transform in DPS or tank mode, just not heals. Andronikos and Corso weapons are being revisited by Bioware. Other items are actually there in certain specs just not all.

      • nefastus

        actually mostly arent, i think only the ragkghoul is kinda there, of sorts.

    • Naq

      Some of this stuff is a shame. Vette’s “woohoo!” is almost as good as Guss’s “Wheeeee!” Blizz’s zipline charge, and missle launcher attacks were so good. It would be nice to see that addressed, my only concern is that they probably just cant.

      • Charlie Richards

        They are too lazy to fix it.

      • Joe Falittie

        I heal you with Jedi Power

    • Bennett A Sawyer

      Heck Blizz used to have a rocket launcher ( I know technically it was a missile launcher ) which was the coolest animation- I stunned a fellow player once when I activated this move since I was use him to tank heroics and mobs sometimes. There is no uniqueness between them now and do wish we could switch spec’s in combat

    • Paulo Gomes

      This. Very well put. Expansion is great as far as story goes, but I’m getting bored ALREADY of running around planets doing Heroics… With comps that make no sense story wise, lore wise. So we play an epic story only to come back to meaningless comps then???

    • Vess

      Yeah, my HK-51 is busted. I want my credits back. What good is an assassin droid that can’t Assassinate?!

    • Sayaendo

      You missed a few. Yuun has forgotten how to use a techstaff. I’m not sure what exactly 4X can use since it didn’t like the weapon he had. And all of mine at least were missing their pants! ๐Ÿ˜›

    • disqus_F4PaJWYSz1

      BioWare: Companions are a big part of the game, we’ll make them more awesome!

      How will you do that?

      BioWare: We make them all the same, we make them less unique, we make them more boring.

      Uh, well. This isn’t more awesome companions.

      BioWare: Listen. We say so, it’s awesome.

      Um. No!

    • Van’zan

      Yep companions are total FUBAR right now.

    • AbsolutGrndZer0

      Okay, you are wrong about Doctor Lokin. Put him in tank or dps mode then actually enter combat. Rakghoul form is his ‘weapon’ in tank/dps roles.

      The rest of your concerns though, I totally agree.

    • Caliyesca

      Blizz used to be a perfect tank and only companion my mercenary ever used, now he is a terrible tank constantly getting me killed and I can’t switch to melee tank instead of ranged tank but now they are all exactly the same and they all suck.

  • SupRun

    If anyone cares, Commando Eliminator’s 6 piece set bonus is broke, Boltstorm does not proc auto-crit demolition round.

  • Deshik

    I just found out that if you click on a referal link and become someone’s link you will get a free inventory module and crew skill slot along with other character unlock for every character. You can become referal even if you are already a suber. Is anyone interested in becoming my referal?

    • Secundum

      Don’t try and con people here-go to fleet if you want your free 600cc.

      • Deshik

        I’ll try that, thanks ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Emprah

    Please fix the companion terminal!

    Also, please let us still summon HK and Marr for general PVe content. I would pay real money cc forthat.

    Hear it, BW? Real moneyz.

    • Deshik

      You wont find bioware here lol Only Doofy

    • Cameryn

      Eric Musco at Bioware said the fix for the companion terminal didn’t make the bug patch yesterday but would be part of the patch next Tuesday.

  • pve dude

    and wasn’t the companion( hope the new ones too ) able to wear gear for cosmetic use instead of having us all looking alike ?

  • Migali

    If someone could tell me if you also have that bug : ability replacement between specs force me to relearn replaIced abilities.

    Exemple : Sins have a move called “trash”. In deception this move is replaced by Voltaรฏc Slash, but if i change my spec for hatred, if don’t get “trash” back, i see to get a holo hutt or my class trainer in order to learn “trash” again

    ps : sorry for my bad english

    • Migali

      Edit 1 : i have the same bug with every replaced ability, on every class (tracer missile/power shot, magnetic blast/flame burst, aegis assault/sundering assault, etc…)

      • Naq

        I think this is on their “to fix” list coming up.

    • Sarigar

      Your English is better than my whatever! But if I may note:

      Thrash = beat or strike violently

      Trash = garbage, waste, refuse

      Sorry you are having an issue, but it did make your post sound funny. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Migali

        ahahahahahah i just got it, nice. I’ll go hit people with my garbage now

      • Raemann

        Once while ordering Chicken I was told that I was ordering puppy by our German waitress…

      • jcdane

        I went to Mexico a long time ago as a volunteer. I had two partners helping me. We stayed with a family named Viegas. When it came time to thank the Viegas family, one of my partners thanked “las viejas”, which means “the old ladies”.

    • Liftedplane

      I had a very similar issue with this on my shadow switching from Kinectic Combat (tank stance) to Infiltration (DPS stance)

      When switching from DPS to Tank it all worked as it should, then when switching back from Tank to DPS I lost telekinetic throw (assassin it is force lightning) I fixed this by switching back into tank then straight back to dps… I got the ability back without having to visit my trainer, this was super useful

  • guest

    Dear Musco-Claus: All I want for Christmas is to be able to give a whole stack of 99 gifts to a companion in one click. Tis the season for giving after all.

    I promise if you just give me this one thing I will quit saying bad things about the toys I got last year.
    Signed Charlie Brown.

    • Holyfrog

      You Lie you will just change your name and keep saying bad things. Of course your name is guest.

  • Gabriel Mican

    Anyone else having trouble zoning into the Nar Shaddaa Heroic 2+ Star Fortress?

  • Adam Wright

    Anyone else noticing a bug where you can’t donate decorations dropped from Star Fortress to your guild? The Rakatan Decorations from Crystal purchase also can’t be donated.

    • Secundum

      I think I read something about new decos being undonatable till the full launch.

    • AbsolutGrndZer0

      I successfully donated and set down in my guild ship the new Tattooine planet display. So it seems it’s not all of them that can’t be donated?

  • Adam Wright

    Also no Legacy Powers from completing a storyline…wth?

    • They are there… They just only appear in that new magic toolbar thingy that only shows up when you make certain actions, like Heroic Moment.

      • David W

        That was a nice touch.

  • Travelering_swordsman

    can they fix the datacron on legacy because on codex the datacrons are all not there…. just letting u know and i hope they fix the codex probelm not showing all the datacrons either because the fleet one is still not being reconized…

    • Sayaendo

      I found that I had to log in the character that had gotten the datacron to get it to recognize that, yes, I have the achievement.

    • Secundum

      You need to log the character that actually GOT the crons. If you can’t remember, just log everything.

    • Joe Falittie

      There are a lot of bugs with Legacy datacrons, I’m missing 10 presence and 26 mastery from Datacrons shown i have collected in the Legacy window, also the Voss endurance datacron is not shown in the Legacy window however its stats are still shared on all toons.

      • Durdens Wrath

        Having the same problem. Does anyone know what the max numbers are?

        I have 57 end. 48 presence, which I think I am 2 short.

        No clue how much Mastery is max.

        • Joe Falittie

          They are… 224 Mastery, 57 Endurance and, 58 presence total stats you can get from datacrons. I have all presence Datacrons in game shown in legacy window even fleet and I’m at 548 bonus presence when it should be 558. I even have proof that there is a bug, before patch i had +550 bonus presence on my Sage and after patch my sage was my very first toon i logged on and it went down to +540 bonus presence.

          • Durdens Wrath

            You mean 50 presence?

            It looks like you are two short.

            Is 224 confirmed on a new toon? If it is confirmed how do you get that much? I would only have 168 with Rishi

            • Joe Falittie

              58 Presence total in game your toon can get, 40 open faction, 10 Fleet, 8 faction specific that work for both factions when unlocked.

              • Durdens Wrath

                So i discovered the fleet datacron isn’t giving stats for presence.

                Are you getting all 224 mastery?

    • Caliyesca

      After 4.0 I noticed I was missing all the republic datacrons and on a different server my republic characters were missing most of the imperial datacrons. So I transferred a republic character over to where my imperial character is and now have all of the datacrons on that one server.

  • Vulpis

    Related to the datacron issue…anyone else lose all their collected matrix shards?

    • jcdane

      Yes, I did.

    • Yes

    • Secundum

      Yup. But who cares? They were worthless anyway.

      • they are not worthless if u can’t afford to buy a relic from the old pre-4.0 Alignment vendors…. now we cannot even do that! so they are definitely not worthless now!
        Supposedly we can craft them but i do not see how, yet.

        • Secundum

          No, they really are. You can get a crafted relic for next to nothing on the GTN.

    • David W

      I didn’t even know what the hell to do with them in the first place

      • p4v7

        You made out of them the best possible relic for 1-50 levels.

        • Liftedplane

          they should add new relics in with them that are for current level… or even new matrix shards.

          • John Kosto

            Or completely remove shards so that we don’t have to go through this trouble again, especially some of us who had gotten all of them ๐Ÿ˜›

  • jcdane

    I put in a ticket for my HK-51 questline. I lost all the parts and the whole questline was reset. All I had left to do was Heroic Foundry. It’s all gone now.

    • Secundum

      It WAS announced that that sort of thing would be reset before the patch hit.

      • Liftedplane

        there were no specifics as to what was and wasn’t going to reset, and that’s a pretty retarded thing to reset. I had to kill gargath 2 more times for the aratech ice and he was being farmed so damn much last week I never saw him there, and I would check every two hours for 3 days.

        so thanks bioware for resetting shit that didn’t need to be reset

        • Holyfrog

          You’re right there was no specific list of things that were going to be reset, but they said finish all missions that you wanted to do. So you were warned.

        • Secundum

          iirc they just said ‘all active quests’

  • JeSs Riot

    Hey there. It is rather shameless of me for using this space for my personal ‘gain’, but here is the problem. I quit SWTOR before first expansion. There is no problem figuring out how to play them, itis rather simple path but KotfE..

    I have questions if you don’t mind.
    1. Do you regain all of your companions? some of them?
    2. What are new companions? I’m playing as juggernaut mostly, can I meet Vette?
    3. Can you romance new companions? who exactly?

    • John Doe

      You better hit up torcommunity and the official forums for that info , everything will be gathered up there. GL

    • Secundum

      Yes, once the bug is fixed on tuesday.
      No, not unless you were already a sith warrior-and there are too many new comps to list here.
      Yes, Lana, Theron, and the new guy.

      • Jaako

        can’t forget about Senya

        • Secundum

          Oh yeah, I forgot about her. And HK-55 I suppose, but imo he doesn’t count.

        • Darth Jadus

          Senya <3

          • Darth Twinge

            The emperors sloppy seconds XD

    • Unoshi

      As far as its been mentioned you don’t get all old companions not sure if The new one is a must or a choice haven’t played yet. But not all old companions shows up in the chapters so far yet. Maybe future patches. Hit up dulfy blog about alliance something something. It list the companions u get so far. Beware spoilers

    • TattooHero

      I know this much, the trooper loses one companion. Not saying which one, run through the chapters and find out.

  • Isla Rose

    I had this issue. To fix it, you just go to Odessan (even without the expansion active) and in the cantina you can reacquire the droids (They have quest icons). After completing two brief quests (just dialogue), they are added to your roster, and can again equip their customizations. No word on the sensors though.

    It seems there’s a conflict between existing C2N2 models and the “new” model in KoTFE. I’m guessing this is because of the storyline conflict (pre-outlander and post-outlander) and issues in identifiers for the droids in code. Also part of the reason why upon signin after patch, Treek was glitched and wearing C2N2s customization.

    The issue of droids can be completely resolved by going to the Odessan cantina and talking to both droids, for players at any level. You can use your ship to travel there, the planet is accessible in Wild space.

    • Dave

      I imagine the sensors are now trash too due to the influence/companion changes and how they scale for crafting.

    • Fionxxi

      the sensors are returned to you and you can turn them in at the vendor for 100k the price you paid for them ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Carsti

    My interface designer is stuck. Meaning the designer’s own UI, can’t move it anymore? And yes, I switched “Enable Movable Secondary Windows” off and on again. So, at the moment I can’t move any elements behind the designer’s own window.

    That’s a known bug, too? Or just my luck?

    TIA, Carsten

    • Holyfrog

      I’ve had some issues with that too. I also moved the temp ability bar and don’t like we’re I put it so I went to move it again and now it’s not in the UI.

      • Carsti

        Somebody in /1 solved my issue: that window is the only one you have to move in the middle, not on the frame like all other windows. No idea if that has been the case all the time or has been introduced with the most recent patch.

        For the temp ability bar: before you move it, it’s a little square. After you moved it, it’s a long bar. So maybe it’s still there, but you don’t recognize it? Also, there is a option to not show elements that are ticked off (red frames), so maybe you accidentally unchecked it?

  • Heavensrun

    They need to fix mats on space mission gear for cybertechs. I know it’s low priority, because most people don’t care, but I enjoy running the heroics for fun and prizes, and I like gearing up my alts.

    • Dave

      Kind of a moot point now…the gearing of alts.

      • Heavensrun

        Um…How d’ya figure? I still have a dozen characters, and only 5 of them have a full set of level 7 space gear, and I seriously do not plan on buying that shit off the cartel market.

  • Rob

    aside from the dual wield issues, the abilities window for companions doesn’t say which weapons are allowed to be equipped any more.
    mobs still disappear into the floor and keep one in combat, even tho we can’t fight each other. also,
    i can’t redo the companion quick bar like i was pre-4.0 as i prefer smaller tray with more rows kind of thing.

  • darkfather

    I am just doing the daily raids to get gear drops and coms for now until some of these bugs are fixed. You can get from 60-65 in one Groupfinder Ops.

    • Jaako

      Yes doing the same to be ready for HM OPS, currently at 4-set + MH, OH + Implants

  • Kenn

    Out of curiosity for those using the auto-lvl 60, I’ve noticed that you don’t get the <60 class titles. Any chance that that gets restored, or will we have a lot of not-Darths and not-Masters running around?

    • Liftedplane

      shouldn’t get the title, didn’t earn it, just bought it. just like it shouldn’t count towards legendary unlock.

      • michael fearless

        Except that it does count towards that, apparently.

        • Student5656

          I’ve bought 2 but wasn’t counted towards legendary

          • Liftedplane

            good, this isn’t a pay 2 win game…. if you haven’t actually done said quest achievement etc etc you shouldn’t be allowed to buy it.

            • Student5656

              I don’t agree with buying the legendary status as well, but I don’t see how that could even be pay 2 win. Unless you define winning swtor as completing all class stories. The class titles should be granted for RP reasons, it’s not like class titles provide any in-game bonuses.

        • Secundum

          No, it doesn’t. You need to actually finish the class quest story.

    • Secundum

      You get the title for clearing a certain quest. Your level 60 did not clear said quest, therefore does not get said title.

    • michael fearless

      I have noticed however, that if you didn’t have that class story finished, taking the auto 60 for it will grant you completed status in it. So there’s that.

  • Fuzzypaw

    So with all these bugs going on, are there any “exploits” that I need to know about?

    • awesomea doubleOhseven

      How about all the imperials hanging out on Coruscant, Tython and Ord Mantell.

      • Kyrri

        I went to Tython and cleaned it up, killed a few of those invading Imp bastards xD

      • Darth Jadus

        Watching pub scrubs get killed by the Legacy Vendors on Dromund Kaas never fails to brighten my day.

        • Unoshi

          WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so when i saw this message in Gen Chat bout republic in front of Korriban academy that shit was real? wth man

    • Naq

      Never seen anyone so dead set on a temp ban.

    • frerf

      heroic reward boxes can be mailed to and opened by toons of any level and the gear in them is equal to the level of the toon who completed the heroic (example: lvl 56 finish heroic, sends box to lvl 1 toon. lvl 1 toon opens and gets 178 gear. lvl 1 toon can wear lvl 178 gear)
      *sits in hutta with 23k health and 20% alacrity huehuehuehue*

  • Ben

    I would like to add another bug, it seem cartel crystals need authorization now.

  • KShrike

    there was a lot of gapcloser positional update glitches (or whatever you want to call it) where an NPC is in a position server side that is not the same position client side.

  • /Shrug

    Why is the reward on some of my characters Alliance lockboxes while on others it’s normal lockboxes like “Yavin lockbox” etc Is there some pre requirement you have to do in order for them to give the alliance ones? Yes all my characters are 60. And I only did KotFE on my Guardian, but even without doing the story on my sorc, she was eligible to get the alliance box rewards. My scoundrel is not though.

    • Shadowofdeath

      I had that initially so I think it might be that any character not done the story arc get lockboxes to gear you up, they stop after 4 or 5 turn ins

    • Rob Ferret

      You have to be L61 to get the Alliance Boxes. I had the same thing of getting Yavin boxes until I hit L61 and then they all changed to Alliance Boxes.

  • Vampire-SSV

    Found bug on Quesh, cant land, because cant take planet quest at orbital station.

    • Darth Jadus

      That’s not a bug, the devs just hate Quesh as much as the rest of us do.

      • Vampire-SSV

        Its all cool, but now my assasin stuck on this useless planet:(

    • Secundum

      That’s not a bug-you need to be a certain level.

      • Vampire-SSV

        Well, im 35 lvl, and its unavailable, but still thanks for answer, ill try it when i will be 37 or 38.

        • Secundum

          Yeah, it’s level 37 iirc. (Because Quesh is level 37-38). Just do a couple of Kuats.

          • Caliyesca

            It’s 33 to be able to set foot on Quesh

    • Bobby Hendrawanto

      if you have the sufficient level, you will need to get an injection to survive quesh toxic environment. talk to the quest giver near the shuttle that will give you the injection and start the planetary quest.

  • Raansu

    Is anyone having to retrain their abilities every time they respec?

    • Secundum

      No.

    • Shadowofdeath

      I’m having to retrain some abilities, such as retraining Crushing Darkness each time I switch between Madness and Lightning

      I think It might have something to do with replacer abilities eg, crushing darkness is not used but Demolish is instead so It untrained Crushing Darkness??

  • redrage97

    hmm.. i notice if i field respec i can’t assign skill points again. i have to go back to stronghold then back

  • Nocebo

    Companion issues, too many to possibly list. No real killers since there are many companions. An odd one is that Mako is giving my female character a courting quest (All Work and No Play) for male characters. Looks like maybe Mako is not quite out of the closet yet, Bioware may have jumped the gun ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Darth Jadus

      Heh, I wouldn’t complain.

  • Dreskan

    I just did the Jedi Consular story this week and it seems Zenith bugged out as after Balmorra he never joined my team. He appears neither in my companion or crew skills windows.

    • Cyrinia

      Same thing happened to me,torian bugged out on my bounty hunter,he doesn’t appear on my companion or crew skills as well,I heard some people lost their companions like( kira carsen),so I hope bioware will fix this bug in the next update

  • MasterSaim

    hey, but the barrel/hilt mod, are now artifact?????

    • Bagern

      Its not bug, they made all End-Game main modifications (barrel/hilt) and all end-game armors artifact and also all max stat crystals , they wanted to made them artifact….And now they want to make you pay for it…

      • MasterSaim

        Fantastic…count me out from this game… ๐Ÿ™‚
        there is a way i can gift my last CC?

        • Batorr

          He is trolling you, its a bug Bioware is aware of.

          • MasterSaim

            This change all.
            So I only have to wait(hope not too long, cause this fault for bioware is considered minor) for a patch…
            Thanks for the good news Bator:)

            • Unoshi

              Doubt its a bug. The initial move was to make artifact gear req sub or artifact authorization, the item is on the CM for a reason but since at a certain point all rewards from high end dailies. And what not were epic rewards i have not seen the requirements for artifact authorization anymore since Oricon. Could have been earlier but cant recall but with 4.0 rewards have been sacked back to premium (blue) (h2 weeklies at least, haven’t played kofte story yet ) so if this is the case that only ops/hm fp and ops equivalent crafted gear are artifact quality then I’m pretty sure this will be intentional

        • Secundum

          The cartel market crystals are a known bug, the rest is intended.

  • Varak’sas

    Does anyone have the following bugs so I know it’s not just me?
    -Artifact Force Lord MK-2 Gear for consular (got it on the Esseles) has no stats, just armor.
    -Some scannable crafting items aren’t scannable on DK (Desh Junk)
    -Certain perks can’t be chosen for certain disciplines.

    • Holyfrog

      I was on Belsavis and tried to scavenge and it told me that I needed 350 to salvage it. I’m maxed on all my alts. So yeah there is a bug with crafting.

    • Darth Twinge

      Yeah, somebody on fleet last night linked an implant that had no stats and a level requirement of 177…

    • Xaices

      I still continue to get gear without any stats on them. Even after 4.0.1a patch.

  • Beynal

    Hey, look on the bright side guys – it’s still beta…*cough*…early access… Hopefully they’ll fix most of the bugs with tomorrow’s patch.To be honest I’m concerned about what they did to the companions’ abilities…I know that they’ve announced it long before 4.0… but it’s just horrific ๐Ÿ™

    • Secundum

      Why? Now you can pick the comp you like, rather than the one you NEED to have.

      • Dan Hodgson

        But they all are invincible. You could just stand there and watch your comp kill everyone

      • Beynal

        This feature I do like, but they’ve kinda lost their uniquity…now they’re just like different skins running around with the same abilities…and today they’ve removed Corso’s rifle…and that’s sad – he loved that rifle so much…

  • Darth Darth Binks

    – Purple quest markers aren’t always immediately visible on the map (not just subjectively, they really don’t appear on the map sometimes).
    – Boosted characters don’t have their class story titles, even though they “completed all previous content”.
    – Flashpoints which were not tactical not being tested for tactical format (for example, Maelstrom prison, specifically Kilran).
    – Usual lag and even a crash to desktop(!) I experienced today.

    • Holyfrog

      Boosted characters do not get their class story titles because they DID NOT complete all pervious content. Getting the Darth title is a reward. They shouldn’t have them.

      • Darth Darth Binks

        Bioware used a similar wording to describe boosted characters – “they completed all previous content”. They don’t have access to it anymore, being in KotFE story right away, so it is only fair to give them the titles as well.

        • Holyfrog

          It is not fair to give you the title of Darth if you did not do the mission that gives it to you. There are missions that you can skip that give you titles. Should you be given those titles also?

          • Darth Darth Binks

            Class storyline is a special case. If the class storyline titles don’t become available, then the boosted characters are crippled and inferior compared to the regular characters.

            What’s the big deal anyway? It’s not like it is that much of a feat to level up a character from scratch and obtain the title normally. Character boost is just a convenience item, and the additional ones have an adequate price in CC on the market. It’s not equal to a world first kill of an operation boss or being in the top 200 on the ranked PvP ladder. Jesus!

            • Cyanocitta

              “Crippled” and “inferior” simply because you are missing a five letter word in front of your character name………? In terms of flavor- maybe. In terms of actual game play, I fail to understand this statement.

              And if it isn’t a big deal to level a character from scratch, why are you complaining about this and not leveling a character from scratch?

              • Darth Darth Binks

                Yes, of course it is in terms of flavor. Story and flavor plays a big part in this game.

                It isn’t a big deal, but character boost is a convenience and a quality of life feature, and it is in game (despite those like you, who probably objected to it). Why not make boosted characters equal to normal characters in every aspect?

              • Cyanocitta

                Did I say that flavor was unimportant? I don’t remember saying that. What I said was that I believe you are extremely exaggerating calling a boosted character “crippled” or “inferior”. As a RPer, I believe that flavor and story are some of the most important aspects of the game, contrary to your assumptions. I highly enjoy titles and the depth they add to the game. However, the game was developed with the decision that some titles could only be accessed by completing certain content. Fine. But now we have the possibility of situations where new characters can no longer access the content in order to earn the title. A pain, but that is how it is, and as it an issue that is not currently affecting a players ability to play that character, I’d rather have the devs spend their time correcting higher priority issues that have actually been crippling characters.

                As for the second point, you stated yourself that leveling from scratch wasn’t a big issue. Yet you are complaining about not receiving rewards for content you haven’t completed (on that character). I find the thought of expecting or demanding those rewards to be presumptuous and greedy. Now, should a title as character defining as “Darth” continue to be locked behind content that some characters no longer have access to? That question begins up a valid issue, but also one which can wait to be addressed another day.

              • Darth Darth Binks

                The issue is currently unresolved. That is a fact, no question about that. But if boosted characters don’t get at least an opportunity to obtain them, then they are crippled. They are objectively inferior to normal characters. It is not an exaggeration. If they don’t get the titles, or the opportunity to obtain them, they lack one of the features of the normal characters. You can try to neglect the importance of having or not having access to the feature, but they objectively won’t have it, nor the means to obtain it.

                This has to change. We have character boost, which gives the character full gear appropriate for the level, which is much more important game mechanics-wise, and fully leveled crafting skill and two gathering skills, so why not everything else that a character of that level would have by completing the character story (as stated by Bioware; and not only that, but all “content” prior to KotFE) and arriving to that point?

              • Holyfrog

                I love that you say that by not having a title “cripples” you. The big deal is, that if you didn’t do the work to get the title you don’t DESERVE it. It is a reward. By your standards they should be Legacy titles. It’s just like getting a lvl 60 doesn’t count toward the Legacy completion. Instant 60 is not a quality of life feature. Legacy cargo hold, not having to click qt points, mount on the run those are quality of life features, they help every alt not just one, they make it easier to play. That is what QoL is, not a new alt. But Then again you are the one who thinks that lack of a title cripples you.

              • Darth Darth Binks

                What work? Wooow, it is sooo much work to level up a character and finish a chapter 3. *sarcasm off*

                Character boost is a quality of life feature because it eliminates a boring (*not* difficult), mechanical part of obtaining a high level character. Everyone can see that. You are either trolling, or are really that much blinded by your negativity and false elitism to not see it.

              • Holyfrog

                I never said anything negative about character boost. I don’t mind it at all. Face it you are not getting titles that you didn’t get and don’t deserve. If leveling a character is so easy and not work then do it and quite complaining about not having titles.

              • Darth Darth Binks

                You do mind it, haha. I just want Bioware to stay true to what they put in the game already – “character has completed all previous content”. ๐Ÿ™‚ Full consistency please. I want what I paid for. ๐Ÿ™‚

              • Holyfrog

                Show me where I said I not like instant 60s. You can’t! Because I never said it. Don’t put words in my mouth, fool. This is about titles you did not earn.

                PVP seasons 1-5 is pervious content. How about the original Rak event or the Chevin? Where are your titles for those on an instant 60? I guess they should also count toward the all classes legacy also. After all they completed “all previous content”. Why aren’t you bitching about that? You can’t even do what you want BioWare to do “Full consistency please”. You have 17 characters and only true the boost on your latest one, you didn’t pay for a instant 60, it was free.

              • Darth Darth Binks

                Bitch elsewhere, bitch.

              • Holyfrog

                Ohh looks like a hit a nerve. When people can no longer defend their position they resort to the classic “fuck you”. You are the one that is bitching about not having things you don’t deserve.

              • Darth Darth Binks

                Fuck you little bitch.

              • Holyfrog

                Again with the “bitch” and the “fuck”? You have nothing more to say then that?

              • Jeff Kraschinski

                Those are optional quests/events. The class story is not.

                The character itself has been a veteran of SoR/RotE and that cannot be started until the end of chapter 3 of the class story. So the insta-60 should be awarded the same titles accordingly. Just the class story related ones, mind you. Not anything else.

          • Jeff Kraschinski

            Ahhh but the CHARACTER DID do them. For example, my insta-60 Shadow specifically referred to herself as “Bar’senthor of the Jedi” to the cantina chick in KotFE. That was a title bestowed in the class story.

            The character has, for the purposes of story, done chapter 3 and at least SoR/RotE… up to and including Corellia, Yavin and Ziost. Not necessarily any of the side stories but at least the class story and probably the main planet story as well. (Plus one’s conversation with Lana at the freshwater spring implies Makeb as well for mentioning isotope-5)

            The character has done these things, even if the player had not experienced them.

            If the insta-60 were simply made a level 60 toon then given the OPTION to immediately start KotFE then I’d agree with you completely. You’d still be able to go back, earn the title, THEN start the new content. But the insta-60 does not get that option but is immediately shunted into the new content and automatically locked out from going back to earn the titles they should already have.

        • Secundum

          No, they won’t. To get the titles/rewards, you need to actually finish the quest (it’s a Quest reward). While the CHARACTER completed them, YOU (the player) did not, so you don’t get to show off your title.

  • Sarigar

    Not sure if it’s a bug or not, but my Vengeance spec Warrior gets only Tank-type (Bulwark) rewards and drops from missions and flashpoints. I thought the system was supposed to take spec into account when providing rewards, but it seems like if you CAN tank, then tank rewards are all you get.

    Not talking about the selectable Tank or DPS/Heals boxes, I mean like when you beat a boss in a HM or Tactical FP and get a piece of loot.

    • TGIF

      same here with my guardian tank. I only ever get pummeler gear in the loot

      • dawgbone

        My sentinel has been getting tank hilts.

        • TGIF

          hopefully they fixed it with the patch

    • Jerac

      My Sniper DPS has only been getting healer gear drops with ridiculous crit and alacrity stats on Ops. Its ridiculous!

    • Secundum

      No, it only takes basic class into account, not spec.

      • Sarigar

        So it’s either bad randomization (or no randomization), or the worst possible luck (since I have literally gotten no “Pummeler” type pieces on my DPS warrior out of 20+ drops).

  • dawgbone

    Anyone else getting an issue where they look at a new chest piece and they can’t see the stat difference because it’s below the screen?
    Every other piece of equipment shows up fine.

    • Nomissire

      Yeah same deal here, hopefully they fix it tommorow with the official release, for now I’m just assuming it’s more main stats and less secondaries (shield, absorb, power, etc)

  • Aric

    I heard a couple days ago that cartel pack drop rates were bugged, does anybody know if this is still a problem?

  • Caliyesca

    I keep hearing people in game say you’ll get banned for going to the republic fleet with imperial characters and vice versa but I haven’t seen or heard any warnings from Bioware. I’ve been doing it just to explore though.

    • Darth Twinge

      other than pvp novelty I dont know what would be to gain. Its not like getting opposite faction datacrons is a big deal now that they are legacy. Can you interact with vendors? Maybe getting the opposite factions dancer costume from security key vendor would be worth it for uniqueness, I dunno

      • Caliyesca

        I was hoping to be able to fight on fleet but you can’t so yea there is no point really. No fun killing lowbies, awesome idea about the dancer costume going to see if I can do that now

      • Caliyesca

        It says “Target Not Friendly” then the security droid walking by killed me, those things arent just for show lol

        • Darth Twinge

          ๐Ÿ™

  • Senya Tirall

    Anyone else getting an error where you get a Failed Mission warning every time you enter or leave a story instance?

    • Stephen Yarger

      yes abd one of my companions is not activating a conversation that should be activating by now.

  • ShadowNic94

    Anyone else’s romance companion been reset? On my Inquisitor, just prior to the patch, I had managed to activate my Romance with Ashara. Has this happened to anyone else?

    • BookerT

      Yup, Mako don’t want courting gifts anymore, even I did romanced her… I think on my operative is reseted romance as well

  • Pitt90

    Anyone else having graphic problems with companions? Specifically, my DPS jumper companions (like Kira or Kaliyo) don’t actually correctly jump to the mobs they’re fighting. They jump like half way then teleport to the mob. It’s making it tricky to figure out who the hell they’re fighting sometimes. I’ve submitted bug reports, but (surprise!) no response that I’ve seen.

  • Joliet Jerry

    Just got all Alliance Specialists to Level 10 but only got the achievement for one of them.

    • Evenmoardakka

      iirc, you have to get the crystals reward from the commander’s office

  • Guglielmo Oliveri

    I just realized that my Khem Val and Talos Drellik stronghold decorations are no more available, anyone found the same problem?

  • Kodar

    Damn, it’s freakin’ SWG all over again!! So, when does Fallout come out?!?

  • Mike Haydon

    Miss this MMORG after living and breathing it with Elara Dorne And Kaliyo in the Empire, cancelled sub and characters, nothing left to the game after 3 years of gearing up level 60 companions only to have their crystals and gear dumped unceremoniously by Bioware without a thought to players who take companions as a serious part of the game, especially those like me started out at level 1. RIP SWTOR I wont be back, nor will my coins or sub.:(

  • Job Dyer

    Hey, I got a problem also involving C2-N2, pretty much what happened is

    that I unlocked C2-N2 for the first time on a smuggler after the 4.0
    patch came out, but the stronghold decoration for C2-N2 was not unlocked
    it read as 0/0 avalible at it’s decoration listing. I’ve asked around
    and I’ve been told what may have happened is that a new version of C2-N2
    was bought in with the new patch so that Imp players could use it. I
    know this bug only effects C2-N2, because my first companions decoration
    works fine. having said that, I unlocked 2VR8 well over two years ago
    before the stronghold patch came out, so I cant really use it as a
    reference. Anyway, has anyone else here experienced this problem?

  • Beasthuntt

    I lost a chest piece when they unequipped all the gear from comps. My gree chest never came back to me. Lost the mods and augs. No biggie, but now when I go to click play to start Chapter 1 of the expansion I get kicked back to the fleet.

  • Matte Black

    Stuck on Chapter IX. Get through the intro cutscene, speak with Theron, go to war room, speak to Dr. Oggurrob….. tutorial window opens. Close that and my objectives in the mission window are all greyed out, (these are the ones telling me to speak with the remaining specialists). I have reset the mission, reset all instances, related, traded in Supply Crates…. nothing fixes this. We are currently wading through hundreds of corpses that aren’t refreshing from the screen, (i.e. despawning) so server lag is horrible. Wondering if that has created some sort of freeze. Only problem with that theory is the multiple attempts at resetting/restarting/relogging that have led to the exact same results every time. (I have completed all KOTFE content on two toons previously so I’m not missing something). So any who, can’t get to the Star Fortress arc or any of the Alert missions. Anyone know what’s happening here? No response to my ticket, (big surprise)

    • Joshua Wolsborn

      Im having the exact same problem. Can’t find a work around. I did the contact quest for The Hutt scientist, Orggorub I think. Can’t do SF because of it. I however can’t even reset the quest.

  • There is STILL MISSING MAIN QUEST storyline for some of my characters. Customer service does not even respond until you pay them subscription. Go to hell bEAware!
