Title says all. Please CG, consider to add this gear back to the Haat rewards box. At this very moment I need 5400 pieces of this salvage...

  • Why? I always have plenty of those. The prototype needed to complete the piece, not so much.

    Do you have all the legendary, journey toons? One or more GL?
  • Nope, but don't we get 50-60 of those a week from challenges? Didn't they remove it from HAAT and put it in the challenges? Unless you're lucky, 50 a week from challenges is more than you would get from HAAT.
  • CG response: Deal with it or get out the credit card.

    That’s why you have a lot - you aren’t even keeping up with the game

    You get about enough to craft one gold ball every 2 weeks

    Try going after a GL and you’ll easily lose about 2k of your horde — how much do you have right now?
  • I was militantly against and vocal when they were being taken out. These days I scrape by. I need 71 full balls total and have enough for 8 balls. As long as I don't gear stuff too fast, I can manage. There was an intermediary period about a year ago I farmed/bought some.

    The JKL g11-g12 jump removed all of my store chest

    I did that too. Stock of 8 is like nothing, I may fall to 0 on any upcoming chase. I need 3780 more xD.
  • I bought the hyperdrive bundle when it's been released and those 500 extra kept me on the surface for a while but the GL farm was the last nail in the coffin lol.
  • Yeah I’ve been asking for CG to put those STR challenge gear back when they removed it and still have the same stance as I did back then

    The other two challenge gear can stay removed
  • There are 3 types of people...

    1) those experiencing the mk8 implant salvage crunch
    2) those not yet experiencing the mk8 implant salvage crunch
    3) same as 2), but for some reason think it won’t happen to them.
    in my experience those not experiencing the crunch don’t have all legendaries / journey toons yet and/or horded the gear for next GL but haven’t applied yet or have a GL yet

    JKL and his prereqs eat a lot of gold balls for example
  • Good luck with this. People begged for this crunch. Remember all those "remove challenge gear from raids" threads?

    I'm genuinely curious...why would anyone ever ask CG you remove gear? Aren't we always begging for more of the important stuff (stun guns, carbs, eyeballs)?

    Also, Ultra, what other two pieces are you talking about that can "stay removed"?

    I've been playing less than a year, so I'm not familiar with the history.
    Cheers,
  • Very interesting history there. Probably a lesson to be learned as well. Thanks @Ultra 👍
    Cheers,
  • I don’t understand? CG helped us remove gear crunch with the introduction of Kyros and then further alleviating our gear pain with the relics. They are the masters of balancing the economy in this game to keep everyone happy. So it was said and thus shall it be.

    This is what you get when you go for the Light Side, it's your own fault! Going Dark is so much easier! I don't have any of these Clones, Skyguy, GLRey or JKL and i don't need it, my SLKR, Sith and the almighty Empire will overcome the galaxy!

    Never make the mistake of believing forbearance equates to acceptance, or that all positions are equally valid.

    Or you just don't have enough things geared. You may never have and that's fine. But calling yourself a ds player with lowbie seps... xD

    The issue with the challenge gear portion of the eyeballs is two-fold: One, you need 60 of them for every 50 of the non-challenge half, two, they are relatively cheap in shipments so what happens is people buy those whenever they see them and then are short on the challenge gear portion.

    I think having been used to getting them from tank, people are used to farming the clear kind but not the solid kind. So to need to buy the solid ones from shard shop or wherever feels like a punch in the gut given it's challenge gear that used to drop frequently in tank. Carbs are also challenge gear, but I think we'd all like to see more of those in raid drops.

    Tank rewards are still mostly useless now though.

    That's what everyone says until they inevitably run out.

    To the detriment of your guild in LSTB, from the looks of it.
    The CGDF is recruiting. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    We focus on DSTB anyway and nobody is forced to gear or level toons they don't want. So we may not be top notch but that's fine.

    That's a good roster. That said yeah, you are not the point where this bottleneck will hit you hard, you are getting close to it. Here's how many you need in total vs. I need in total and what I have. You'll also hit this point ds player or not. Or you'll just restrict your roster growth speed merely to not hit the bottleneck. I'm f2p.

    I don't go for any alignment at all

    so there is no such thing as a stun gun, carbanti, gold balls, and kyrotech crunch at all! If anyone is lacking any gear its their own fault
