This whole thing is an amazing idea and i wholeheartedly support it.
Once you hit character level 15 command 100, as i have with several characters now, you get nothing out of PVP except a poultry amount of credits. You stop gaining loot packs from exp level ups and dont really gain enough credits atm to really earn gear packs if im playing PVP, and i dont wanna spend all my time repeating the same missions over and over just to get packs. the grind for legendaries can take its toll on the enjoyment of this game.
I’ve played the sentinel mission 11 times now, and not a single legendary for any of the 3 bosses have i earned. taking on average 40 mins to safely complete advanced per run, thats a LOT of time i’ve invested for no return of legendary gear.
Being able to earn extra credits now im maxed out in PVP, which i adore, would allow me to buy epic/faction packs with a chance of legendary gear from a limited loot pool, i fully understand and support that the onyl way to get certain legendaries is to fight the bosses that drop them. But dont make PVE the only real viable way of earning gear for those of us who love the game enough to have maxed command rank and have fully mastered characters.
