SWTOR: Nightmare 224 Loot Drop Changes Patch 4.1

Nightmare Operations

Eric Musco informed the SWTOR community that starting with patch 4.1, the final boss of each nightmare operation will drop a nightmare token loot. January Producer Live Stream Wrap-up | 01.15.2016, 03:37 PM Hey folks, One of the questions that came up on the stream was around Loot in Nightmare Operations. I said I would post the answer on the forums after the stream, so here is the update that I have. Starting in Game Update 4.1 (with Chapter X) the final boss in a Nightmare Operation will now have a 100% chance to drop a 224 item. All other bosses in the Op will still have a chance to drop 224, but it is not guaranteed. -eric Join the forum discussion on this post

SWTOR concerns regarding accessing future Companions

SWTOR  concerns regarding  accessing future Companions

Eric Musco posted some answers to some of the growing player concerns on companion recruitment. These 4 threads all ask the same questions,can we get answers? | 11.11.2015, 09:53 PM I talked to Matt about Alliance, Companions, and your questions specifically related to accessing future Companions. Between this thread and the ones linked in the OP, I think there are two main questions you are looking to have addressed. Will I need to complete currently available alert Missions to unlock future alert Missions? As of right now, the answer to this is yes. Inside of each Alliance Companion type (Military, Underworld, etc), the Companion recruitment alerts are very much looked at like a Mission chain. Generally, you must complete one alert Mission before you will receive the next. Note that you only need to complete the Mission itself, not necessarily recruit any Companion associated with it. There may be exceptions to…
