Lots of changes at endgame.  I know a lot of people are bitching on SWTOR forums (mainly high-end raiders) but I think I will like the new system for end game gear.  I don't like the fact that PVP gear is going away as for a casual it will be difficult to get "best" gear for PvP now quickly.  I do think in the long run it won't be too bad considering all the other stuff they say they weill be balancing including the next round of class combat balancing.

Nope. Another reason the raiders are pissed.    I have a gut feeling that there is something in the works but time will tell after the release

another expansion that doesn't bring a new raid.   The decisions being made are like they are trying to drive folks away from the game.  Hope this means the rumors are true for a new Star Wars MMO; but then again since EA has the exclusive license maybe I shouldn't have that hope.

In all the time I've been subscribed to this game (since launch) I haven't once taken part in a raid. I don't even know what TOR raids look like, I just enjoy the stories. I'd hate to see them drive off a chunk of their players this way, though. Bad for everyone.

You will love he expansion then.  Expansion is 9 chapters all released at same time.  After that it's about the grind.

Yeah, and I don't play the grind. I'm weird with this game, I play it like a gargantuan single-player KOTOR game. I pick a class and I play solely for the story and when I need a break from that story I pick up a different character. I've been doing this for years, playing casually, slowly building up dozens of characters. And I definitely do not grind. That BS is what finally broke my WoW habit.

But I understand the appeal of end-game raiding, I did it for years, and I completely believe that a game like this can't remain successful without love for both styles of play. You just can't afford to alienate players, especially when you've got new games coming out regularly, nibbling away at your player base. I hope they give raiders some love ASAP, I'd hate to see SWTOR shrivel up and die.

I miss raiding in SWTOR but being on the same raids for a year or more was pretty rough. Actually I think it's still on the same raid it was two years ago  :-\

I hope those still playing this game have enjoyment. I do not regret my decision of coming back to Warcraft. It's a 12 year old game that constantly pushes out new content. SWTOR has the same raids for 2 years, same gear, just ramps up levels by 5...wth is that. Same warzones, same 8 classes...only thing they ever do new is Cartel Market stuff, and that is because that is their cash cow...But I wish you all the bestes....wish I could give you my 80mill creds, but everything is in escrow because my account is F2P =-P

PVP gear going away?  I need to research that.  Getting bored with WOW thought about coming back.

And..  Hello everyone!  :D

Yes, starting in Dec, gear is just gear, you get it from whatever you choose to do and is good for whatever you choose to do.

Uprisings stream was today. I thought these would be just silly rehash of content. It turns out they are random type of actions with different challenge levels for 4 people. They say Master mode will only be done by the best players. It is like a 3 man nightmare raid. These uprisings in my opinion are all new content.  You can watch the stream recording about uprisings. It looks like it will be fun.

Unofficial List of Class Changes:  https://swtor.jedipedia.net/en/news/5-0-class-changes
Looks like they are making major changes such as NO MORE base classes.  You start at your advanced class at level 1.  No more channeled abilities for Melee, everything is instant.  Interesting list of changes.  Some will like, others will hate.

I saw this.  What's your take on what they're doing to the Shadow/Sin?  At first blush it felt gimpy.  Thoughts?
