View Full Version : upcoming changes to PVP bags

02-03-2012, 12:22 AM

If you don't follow the dev tracker on www.swtor.com (you should!) one of the designers made the following post about changes in the PVP gear system that will most likely go live next week (they're on the test server currently):

"It's obvious from comments here that the patch note is not specific enough, so we'll get it updated before the patch goes to the live servers. Here are some specifics:

Champion Bags now always contain 15 Centurion Commendations AND 7 Champion Commendations. Battlemaster Bags now always contain 15 Champion Commendations. So Centurion gearing up progression for new level 50s is increased significantly and Champion gearing up progression will be steady.

We do still intend on adding more intro level 50 PvP items as well as change how Battlemaster Commendations operate toward the same 'steady' goal. It's just the scope of that change was more than could be done in a weekly patch as it included vendor changes, conversions to existing commendations on players already, etc.

That being said, the current interim 'gearing up' system will change significantly when we introduce Ranked Warzones (aiming for Game Update 1.2). Stay tuned for more details on that.

Basically, if you hit 50 recently or just have not had that great of luck with champ bags, you should grind out as many champ bags as you can before the patch goes live, otherwise you'll be stuck needing 7+ champ bags in order to have enough comms for gear. At least now with the RNG element, yeah you can go 7 bags with no loot, but then your next 4 can each have a piece each.

At least that's the way I look at it.
