    Oh they've got the next stages of recruitment firing without the previous one completed, bit late for Lokin...but a damn good change, I really can't see myself completing some of these especially more then once.

    HK-55 looks amazing.

    They broke artifice, at least hilt making requires gun maker mats. Unless of course that's the new plan of requiring artifice to have another craft group make their base mat.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Yaaaay my patching finally finished!

    Except it needed to repair and I'm pretty sure it's redownloading the entire game now.

    Getting rid of BitRaider seemed like a great idea 8 hours ago!

    I finished the new chapter. Have to say it was disappointingly short. I was hoping with all the wait for new chapters that they'd extend them a bit.

    Still just as good writing, plot and characters as before. I was never a big fan of that companion, but at least I have an idea of how they'll treat other companions that I'm more interested in.

    Collecting salvage around hoth to raise his reputation with you to 10...another grind.

    Are there any new Star Fortress based companions?

    For the new chapters is it worth running through it multiple times? I had intended to run through a couple of class stories I hadn't done before, but having spent a few years away from traditional MMO's the combat just wasn't doing anything for me anymore. I played a ton for two weeks and then lost the interest in playing anymore. I did at least really enjoy the 25-30 hours I played and it filled my need for some Star Wars content after seeing TFA.

    If the class stories are all the same in the new content apart from a few conversations maybe I'll figure out how to play my Bounty Hunter or Agent again and just run one of them through.

    It's not worth running it multiple times I'm afraid. At least as if right now, the changes when you make different decisions are fairly inconsequential. The game acts like it's going to remember your choices for impact later, but who knows.

    Koth can leave you depending on what choices you made earlier and the choices made at the end of Chapter 10.

    So, choices kinda matter, but it takes awhile for it to play out. I know some choices will again matter come Chapters 12 and 13 due to datamining.

    With all of that said, a LS run, a DS run, and a gray run probably will cover all your bases.

    I'd add in an Agent run, too, if your LS/DS/gray run don't include an Agent..

    Neat. So if you qualified for the HK-55 perma-companion, you get a spiffy new armor look for him by way of a costume, differentiating you from people who are merely dragging him around from the middle of the previous chapter.

    And the tradeskill window now sorts by highest influence first - about time.

    Here are the current Known Issues for Game Update 4.1! This list will be updated as we come across other issues.
    • The Alliance Alerts "Reclaimed Treasure" and "Shining In The Darkness" are present in the Alliance UI but are not usable.
    • The Outlander gear has changed colors.
    • Schematics can be missing from Crew Skill Crafting lists for some players.
    • Lokin's Influence amount is not appropriately reflected until the item turn-in step of the Mission "A Kindly Old Monster."
    • 212, 216, and 220 Craftable Relics are Bind on Pickup instead of Bind on Equip.
    • Rating 200 and 208 Artifice items require Armstech Components when they should require Artifice Components.
    • Crafted 200 and 208 Armstech Items require Underworld Trading materials when they should require Investigation.
    • Grade 9 Cybertech Grenades require Armormech Components when they should require Cybertech components.
    • 200 and 208 Armstech & Artifice weapons are missing color crystal slots.

  • Crippl3Crippl3 oh noRegistered User regular
    Yeah, I found that missing schematics bug after I spent 100k on all the recipes :/

    If they had done some public/invite-only beta testing, I don't see one of those slipping by...

    [edit] Maybe this one would.

    Very disappointing chapter, a whole lot of the same two mobs and samey environments broken up by all to brief conversation with a character I didn't like...even more then I did the first time round.

    Could of been some what saved if I'd gotten a choice at the end to:
    Kill her off...she's a consummate liar and betrayer, hell she betrays a handful of people in the 30~ minutes this chapter takes. It's only a matter of time before she tries to stab me in the back....

    Should of been more.

    And TOR just went down for an hour and a half to apply 4.1a. Not stated what's getting fixed in this one, but hopefully they're getting a handle on the bugs introduced with 4.1.

    Their process could use some help, or their QA department needs more people. Or more authority to stop the release.

    I feel like they might give us the chance to kill of a bunch of companions so I wouldn't rule it out.

    It definitely feels like BWA's process or resources are insufficient for releases.

    Chapter 10 stuff:
    I wish Kaliyo had gone through with the bombing despite you trying to talk her down. It would have made the aftermath so much better and reinforce her "Whateva, I do what I want!" attitude.

    Fucking hell, the Unstable Arbiter's DUALSABERs are going for 33.5 mil.

    The cheapest Lightsaber is an eye-watering 50-mil.

    I have a feeling my goal of obtaining all the weapons out of the new packs isn't going to work this time around.

    Since the patch, has anyone else been unable to do the Blizz mission? Like, it's not appearing in your alerts? (It was in my Knight's companion panel and I got him, and then it hasn't been in any of my other characters, even my Bounty Hunter.)

    Just finished the Gauntlet assault. I thought it was super rad that I finally got to do something with all my companions! And I got to choose who did what, like in Mass Effect!
    Aaaaand then the whole mission was done in like 10 minutes, and I didn't even get to do anything with the bridge team. So close guys, come on uggggggh

    I feel like the helmet thing is a hint that they're going to be doing some year-long thing where staying subscribed throughout the year will give you one bit of HK-55 inspired gear per month.

    Wait, cross faction warzones? If that's for real, the PVP crowd will love it. They've been asking for that since day one practically.

    Edit: wait, I was thinking of that as cross-server pvp. Cross faction I don't think anyone's asked for, but I don't think it will be complained about. could be fun.

    Finished the new chapter. Liked the story elements and character interaction/development. Did not enjoy the combat at all, which was kind of puzzling because my sorc has always been decent fun.

    I think the problem is normal mobs taking too long to die along with shitty rewards, never saw anything over 200 credits on a drop. At least with heroics I feel like the money is worth the effort and I tend to go through most enemies fairly quick. Plus I kept pulling enemies from halfway across the map, making a lot of combat mandatory that I would have preferred to skip.

    Anyway, the fact that there were actual consequences for going dark side has convinced me to play through everything again with my Jedi Knight. This really is KOTOR III.

    Yeah I actually started my Inquisitor on the new chapters, which I hadn't initially intended. This is my 'kill everything' character, I'm going to see how many lightsiders I can straight up disgust out of my rebel group.

    I haven't decided about Xalek yet though. On one hand he's a murder machine. On the other hand, I can tell him to go fuck himself which you can't do with many companions it seems.
