STAR WARS: The Old Republic - PTS Game Update 1.2 Patch Notes

I'm not even going to try to format that. It's like 30 pages long.

"Game is dying" LOL. See you in April.

Amongst the large number of fixes, should've beens (from release) and additions, content is king when keeping people.

1 Operation
Only thing that would keep me playing for a few weeks, though no nightmare mode.

1 Flashpoint
Done in a day and never to be seen again

1 Warzone
Good enough, but they removed all rewards from Ilum;
New Dailies, so I can pretend I have something to do everyday for all those credits I don't need to spend.

Also, for existing players and those who filled up every character slot and level a fair bit, the legacy system isn't really going to be worth it that much.

Depending when it's out I might give it a go but my server is dead, there were actually NO guilds recruiting in game or on the forums since the only nightmare raiding guilds quit and mine was one of them. HM guilds was down to 1 who only needed one person.

So it's very likely I'd resub, do the flashpoint and pvp until I might happen to find a guild then curse at myself for wasting the money.

edit: I just checked, one guild on republic on niman recruiting since I left

Probably a bit optimistic there. A lot of sages/sorcs and commandos/mercs are rage quitting on this patch. They buffed or left alone the top 4 pvp classes and nerfed the bottom 3.

Personally I can't wait to see this patch in action. The massive flood of tears once people see the marauder rage bombs in action will be hilarious.

That's the change you choose to single out? It really only affects PvE, since force is rarely an issue in WFs/world PvP anyway and making all healers heal about as good as an Operative in PvE only hurts the raiding guilds.

The change that cripples sorcs in PvP is taking away the ability to reduce the good heal to 1.4-1.5 secs. Now all they have is innervate which channels for for 800-900 ticks normally and crits for 1.5-1.6k, the **** HoT which ticks for 300 and is only ever used for the force bending buff and the even ****tier "fast" heal which no one ever used for anything but interrupt baiting, which does 1.1k-1.5k normally and crits for 2.2k-2.5k.

They basically took away the only heal worth casting under pressure from a class has no defensive cooldowns and wear cloth. Sorcs are already my favorite class to pick on when I play a conceal Op, it's just gonna get even easier after this when they won't be able to get a single heal off that heals for more than I hit back per GCD.

Ops heals are definitely a joke, but why are you lumping mercs with them? Mercs heals right now are definitely not ****ty in PvP once they get to Battlemaster/Rakata gear. The good ones takes quite a bit more effort to kill than Sorcs healers. Although after the 1.2, Merc heals might be worse than Ops. They also got an unwarranted nerf.

Not sure why you're celebrating the sorc nerfing this much though? Don't you also play an Op? After this the only remaining spec worth a damn for them in PvP will be deep madness, which means more and harder hitting dots that Ops can't cleanse.

Meanwhile, Marauders, Powertechs and Assassins continue to wreck the **** out of everyone at rank 60+. With BW nerfing Ops dps again and buffing Marauders, I'll definitely be switching to Marauder from Operative for ranked pvp.

they either brought ops up or brought sorcs and merc down... i think we can all see what they chose...

i have a 50 sorc and a 50 op... the difference between the classes is borderline comical esp with regards to healing.

im just enjoying the mmo nerd crazy crying... it doesnt make a difference to me, my account expires in a week or so.

but anyone dumb enough to think that the healing classes didnt need realignment... well i'd jerk off using their tears for lubricant.

the changes to healing are needed b/c you can't have these dps classes have such an advantage over dps classes with no healing. if i'm a gunslinger vs a merc and i get him down to 30% and he gets me down to 50% he just pops his 20% dmg reduction, spams a few heals and he's right back at 75% while i have nothing but a pot with no ability to get OOC. So i can flash him and he can trinket it and or i can use an interrupt that doesn't seem to lock him out very well.

Sorcs might need help with defensive abilities vs melee after this but any way you look at it the healing dps classes need a healing nerf. You can't say we want all dps classes to be close on dmg but then give 3 of them healing and not the rest.

so is it going to be worth crafting once 1.2 is out? Right now i'm just slicing, treasure hunting because its still good $$ but if armstech ever got interesting i'd do that as a 3rd and maybe drop treasure hunting.
