1.4 What are you looking forward to?
Well 1.4 will be out soon…What are you most looking forward to?

Crowd Control change?
Trooper interrupts?
Sorcerer/Sage getting buffed?
Changes to stealth classes?
New Ops?
Group Finder Improvements? (Sending you back to where you were being the biggest)
New Armor?
More Companion Customization? (Hid Helmet or Unify Colors)
Delayed Binding?

I’m mostly looking for improvement in DPS to my Shadow. Love that play style, but I feel like I am carried through many of the Ops she attends and even SM EV, even as over geared as Leyn’a is, she can hold her own, but she can’t carry the group like a good Trooper, Gunslinger or Knight can.

But…Brem is looking most forward to Moods. No more running around with that scowl on her face.

The GF stuff isn’t that big a deal to me. I have to go back to the fleet anyway to turn in the daily/weekly and after the last two nights, I don’t have the right to think about new Ops.

I am mainly just happy they are updating. I do look forward to my smugglers pulse detonator going off quicker.

Plus now my comp won't look like he/she dresses in their sleep :p

I am unclear on how Sage/Sorceror are getting buffed - but as of now, I'm not looking forward to any changes to my preferred class.
And you may feel the need to reassure me that it will be better, but from a strictly aesthetic point of view, I'm not going to like it at all that Force Wave/Overload are getting tampered with. I think it was perfectly fine the way it was - and I dont want the animations changed at all.
I read that the degree of affect is up from the original 120 to 150 degrees..but really, why would a Jedi or Sorceror limit the area that he uses the Force to push away attackers - to a 150 degree cone in front of him?

By the way, I have a technical question I might as well put here.
With updating to 1.4 (and with any patch or update), should I do a repair files scan from my launcher when the actual patch/update finishes?
Thought I'd ask just in case.

Most of the buff I was referring to had to do with healing. It looks to me like the are giving back some of the nerf sages got. Trust me I am not happy about the changes to my push back either, but I am excited the Shadows are getting a little love this time around. The people I usually run Ops with are so great that it isn't a huge deal, but I do at least like the illusion that I am pulling my own weight.

Some with better technical expertise should answer that question, but personally I do not run the repair file scan unless something is broke. I feel it is just another chance for something to mess things up. If it ain't broke don't fix it. :)

Ahh, that would explain why my Balance Sage didn't get any points refunded.

Shadows? I just re-distributed Thom'ell points back into Infiltration and it seemed like alot of it had to do with Force Speed cooldowns and consolidating that 5 point ability that is under Clairvoyant Strike (forgot the name of it) it's down to 2 points to do the same thing, so thats good I guess.
Also I noticed the new Companion unify colors thing doesn't even work. Tried to hide head slot on Zenith and ...nada, nothing happened. The unify colors button doesn't currently work.

At last Vette can stop wearing that stupid mask she has on...

Qui-Don Jorn 09-26-2012 04:25 PM

Force Wave and Overload now look absolutely terrible. Overload even more so.
Unify colors colors doesn't actually work at this time (for me anyway)...

You want BioWare to give you free stuff? :p

NO. I want them to put Force Wave and Overload back the way it was and stop changing stuff that isn't broke.
Yeah, I know WHY they did it. And I am not happy with it.

But why tell you?

*marches off to Bioware offices*

I am hoping that my numbers go up in longer fights with more/quicker force regeneration and shorting the cooldown on Blackout is going to help that. Also get it back right away when dropping out of stealth, which means in trash pulls after CCs I will already have Blackout ready. I am fairly happy with the spec, other than anything over 4 mins my DPS drops like a stone. Not going to put her up against some of the great players on Knight, Gunslingers or Troopers, but I will put her up against any average player. I just want more consistency for a little longer period of time.

my unify colors works for the comp. So does hide helmet slot. At least they work when I click on the little armor button. I can now see Risha's face all the time (which is a good thing) and since I found armor that actually doesn't include a coat or a cape for her I can see her butt as well (which is a better thing) :p

I did notice after the update that all of a sudden when I travel from an orbital station to the planet that Ilum and Black Hole are on my list of choices.

Is this part of the update or is it just because I am lvl 46 now I have access or what?

Lynk Former 09-27-2012 02:41 PM

It's part of the update. Those are all endgame destination you reach when you're lv50.

mimartin 09-27-2012 02:58 PM

I found the thing I hate the most...No more BH comms for SM EC or NIM KP. Even SM TFB does not give BH Comms. Now I can understand the logic behind the change, but why should we get BH Comms for a easy weekly or the joke that is HMFP and not get them for something that is at least a little difficult.

I guess I shouldn't moan, Brem is pretty fully geared to that level and Leyn'a isn't that far behind. Wondering if I even want to continue level Mar'ina now.
