Anyways, I am still playing this game. 1.2 hits tomorrow, or the "Jesus Patch" as some call it. If you happen to make your way to Jung Ma, drop me a line here and we can swap in-game names.
1.2 hit today. Patch Note Here
im impressed so far with everything new added outside of PvP...as for inside of PvP im not that impressed..i mean sure the new warone is pretty cool but its just a fancy version of the alderaan warzone. endgame gear is even more annoying than it was before.
Champion gear = Gone
Centurion gear= Gone
Champ/Cent commendations are now useless so if you have been stocking up to get yourself a nice piece of gear its been a wasted effort..you can't even trade them in for warzone commendations or somthing so you are stuck with whatever you had pre-patch. battlemaster gear is now for everyone..it was level 60 valor required and was the top tier pvp gear but now there is no valour restriction and is the 2nd tier gear..War Hero being the top tier now, requiring you to be at 70 valor. however you still have to reach 60 to get the tittle "Battlemaster".
im not going to deny that the War hero gear looks pretty cool..a million times better than battlemaster, everything is now pretty much attaind through warzone commendations..there are two types now Warzone and Ranked warzone..(ranked PvP was pulled from 1.2 at the last minute so you cant earn ranked ones yet)
War hero gear requires ranked commendations but battle master gear is just plain warzone commendations and you need an obscene amount too..yeah sure ill grind for 1500 commendations for a fricken lightsaber...
Man, did they only add one new set of gear? One of my biggest problems with that game was the horrifically shallow loot variety. It seemed like there was only 4 different looks for each class just with a few different colours here and there.
I didn't realize the War Hero required 70 valor. Oh well.
Chip; there is one new set of PvP gear and two for PvE. They're kind of hit and miss. The PvP Jedi and Sith and Trooper stuff looks cool, to me. The Smuggler stuff is laughably bad. The PvE armor actually is pretty good across the board.
