    I think that's new. i'm being lazy (or smart) and I just linked the main thread to the top of the first page for now. After E3, I'll update the main page. =)

    Well, the reason you wouldn't switch to the other faction, is that LS/DS doesn't have to do with factions. You are supportive and a huge part of your faction, and do believe in it. but, you may have different ideals and ideas of how things should be done than the leaders of your faction. So a Jedi may think taking a life is worthy of the greater good, but the coucil would disagree. That's more how it works. As for gear, there are LS/DS gear that are the same, but have that different requirement. You may get lucky and get a drop that needs lightside, and you can wear it. You might get the darkside version though, and can't wear it because you are lightside.

    Don't like how the camera wasn't auto-centering. Please be adjustable! Please be adjustable!

    so being say a darkside republic might result in you getting much more loot? if everyone is is playing as lUk3 5kYw4Lk3R full light side

    ah another thing that worries me - if we are equipping our companions as well as ourselves are we going to see people 'needing' on your items to equip their companions?

    also does anyone know if there is a shared storage? the endless logging and mailing drives me mad in wow, I really hope theres some sort of shared bank.

    They won't get more loot, because the amount of loot that is not dependent on LS/DS is far, far more.

    Oh the companions. /sigh As awesome as it is to actually equip them, there will be problems with pugs. They will roll on your gear because the companion is an extension of your character, and thus, can be thought of as your character and able to roll on it.

    Yep. It'll happen.

    I won't need to worry about it, because I run a guild that doesn't put up with greedy pricks. But I really do feel sorry for people pugging.

    but with 5 companions arent greedy people going to be needing on everything? I like to pug, ive never really been lucky with guilds, either im in a big guild with little social cohesion or a small friendly guild where hardly anyone is online same time, or wants to do same thing.

    Well, maybe companion gear is a separate drop, and appears differently and maybe is obtainable separate from the main groups loot table, and able to be picked as such.

    yeah that would be nice. Maybe im jaded from years of pugging in wow where you meet many selfish people, its hard to know what the community will be like. Other games I have played like DDO and atlantica have great communities I guess only time will tell on that point.

    solution to companion gear: make it unique and drop along side player gear.

    No, Daniel even said it today that companions get regular gear to equip. It's the way it is. =(

    Where will the boss fight stream be at? Anyone have a url? <3

    Phew. It's hard keeping up with this thread lol.

    I agree though. Companions should get their own gear. If they don't I will likely just have a droid as my main companion as there will be less competition.

    If people think OS "ninja looting" is bad in WoW, I can imagine the huge issue this will pose in SW:TOR.

    from what i've read, crafted gear is the gear that will get you into starter raids and etc., but after reading trollsbane's dev quote saying it's the best gear on the server. did i misunderstand, or is crafted gear going to be best in slot over raiding gear? if that's true, i'm not sure about having crafted items be bis over raiding items.

    if i'm totally wrong here, correct me please!

    Crafting gear is what you will want your guild to wear when they start raiding. Crafting gear will be under raiding gear by a small amount.

    I'm not positive, but I think it will be the gametrailes.com feed. It'll be posted all over this thread around that time though. =)

    wow i leave for a few hours and miss like 7 pages! i caught a bit of the demo this afternoon and i liked what i saw. that rocket punch for the BH looks cool lol. Everything is looking pretty good so far and kudos to them for being tight-lipped about everything. I'll bet it's hard just not to blurt out some things haha.

    so what's on tap for wednesday and what time? i think i missed it since it's late and im exhausted. i think I saw something at 3 PDT??

    also looking forward to the operations and having a real story involving the raid seems like a killer idea. that trailer looked interesting but very much a tease and I kinda wanna see a group in action.

    bed time now, keep the updates rolling guys! I'll check back in the morning

    Also i found this video snooping around on gamespot idk if it has been posted but it was new to me, http://e3.gamespot.com/video/6318093/
    Paradox, Alliance, U.S Guild Site.
    LF 1 Healer and 2 DPS for WoD Mythic raiding.

    A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

    gotcha, thanks trolls.

    It looks like the BH will have a lot of mobility. Rocket Punch and a Grapple type skill. Plus the jet pack bombardment skill. Excited to get my hands on him.
