Disappointing Other People

Ops Exclusive Drops – unique ops-only loot like rare mounts…

  • Which ones do mal and scya have?
  • Is it fair only one drops for the group for such hard content like nim mounts, and not even for the whole account who wins it?
  • Is it fair that solo players can not get this?
  • (End with, there were recently changes to master looter which we’ll talk about in the news segment later in the show)

What drops only in ops?

  • Mounts are the big one
  • Decos, but most can be on GTN or bought/sold via trading
  • Corruptor Blade weapon from Dread Fortress, that stupid hat from Karagga’s Palace, the mask that drops from Dreadtooth
  • Pets
  • Technically crest of the dread masters, that sparkly doodad that is also from Hateful Entity

This week in “You can’t make this sith up!”: using AOE on a single target. In a recent flashpoint, a gunslinger whose name has been redacted to protect their loved ones, only used one of their 45 gunslinger abilities: Sweeping Blasters throughout the entire veteran mode flashpoint. They used this ability until they ran out of energy, at which point they stood there until it regenerated and they could once again resume use of Sweeping Blasters. Perhaps the player in question was deep into some kind of RP. Perhaps they were unaware of the many other abilities SWTOR has to offer. There are many unanswered questions in regards to this deeply puzzling situation, but this reporter will ask just one: What the actual ****.


Lets talk about Datacron hunting because you just put out a great new guide about it!

  • Do scya and mal have them all
  • Do they enjoy looking for them
  • How do they feel about it being legacy-wide now vs per-character
  • Which ones were hardest for them
  • Is it worth getting all the datacrons?
