7.3 Gear Progression Changes

Some changes are being made to reduce the complexity of Gear Progression in the Legacy of the Sith Expansion. Here are the changes as announced by Bryant Wood on the forums. These changes will be on the PTS when it is up and they will be opening the forum then for feedback.

Daily Resource Matrices

Daily Resource Matrices will be removed and all activities that used to reward them will now reward Conquest Commendations. This removal makes it easier for players of PvP, Flashpoints, and Operations to upgrade their gear without having to do Daily and Heroic areas.

Players will not need to do anything for this change. When they do maintenance for 7.3, all the Daily Resource Matrices and their boxes will be converted to Conquest Commendations. You will receive 1 Conquest Commendation for every Daily Resource Matrix.

New Currency Caps

They heard us and are raising the weekly caps for progression currency as follows:

Fewer Currency to Upgrade Gear

They are also reducing the currency needed to upgrade gear, allowing players to focus more on the content than the “grind”.
