When we first ran our story on the new Terror from Beyond Operation, some readers asked what gear would be dropped in Story Mode.
I asked Jesse Sky (Lead Flashpoints and Operations Designer) what kind of gear players should be in to attempt Story Mode and what kinds of rewards they’ll receive for doing so. He said that the gear requirements for Story Mode are similar to those for Story Mode Explosive Conflict. It’s balanced for Columi and drops Rakata, but will also speed up the acquisition of Black Hole gear. Hard Mode is balanced for players who have geared past Hard Mode Explosive Conflict.
So there you go!
Over to you: is that what you expected? It seems a fairly reasonable balance to me…
