Stephen Reid has confirmed that the changes to slicing lockboxes in 1.2 were unintended. Another update confirmed that they're working to correct the issue. *Happy Dance*
Someone has successfully reverse engineered a Black Hole implant... and they're BOE! I'm definitely using an alt to gather some Black Hole commendations and slowly build up a chance to get the pattern.
I've RE'd a campaign relic. It lists a 20% chance to research a schematic. No luck with the pattern yet, but the RE gave a Synthetic Energy Matrix. The crafted version is rumored to be BOE, but I've yet to see an image of it. Now to go gather another 200 Daily Commendations. #yeahright
RE'ing campaign gear (the shells) requires that it have an armoring in it - any armoring will do, including a level 10 armoring.
Birthright and Inheritance kits (legacy armor) can be found on crits of 340 mission discoveries! So far, I've seen them with Diplomacy, Slicing, and Treasure Hunting... but that is only because I haven't run any Investigation or Underworld Trading missions since the patch.
UPDATE: Oh wow, I just got a Birthright item on a crit of a Grade 6 abundant mission. (My first after running 300 of them.) Woah.
