Kiwibird has posted the latest developer Q&A answering questions about Bug Bash, Cymatic synergy and more.
Welcome, ark hunters! You’ve asked, we’re answering. We’re back with another action packed Defiance Developer Q&A!
We have no plans for a Shrill Expedition at this time, currently we are working on a storyline mission for the Shrill. After that we may revisit the possibility of a Shrill Expedition.
We are still looking at the Halloween Hulker Hell event, more news on Extra Life will come up as we near the event.
We are currently sorting through the reports and organizing the reports with the most information. We hope to get a release date set for after October.
We have thoroughly tested this, both internally and externally, and can say with certainty that this is not a balance issue, it is a bug. While fixing this bug will indeed lower the power level of the shield break effect, it is something that is more wide spread than JUST Cymatic Empowerment. In particular, Special Delivery also suffers from this same bug.We have read all of your feedback, and we feel that Cymatic Empowerment is in a good place damage wise. Unfortunately, there is a bug with how that damage is being projected, which needs to be fixed. When we fix this issue, many of you will notice a difference in the damage output of the  set ability, and some of you may not.
The change for increased rewards and a reduction in difficulty is currently on PTS. Hop on and give it a shot!
We are currently testing a new feature for the ability to page up and down the clan list in the Clan Social Menu. If the feature is successful there we will migrate it to other parts of the UI including the Quick Menu.
At this time, we will not be adding another playable race.
We just started to discuss with the artists about possible new models and textures, if it does happen it will still be a while before we will see them. For the time being we should be releasing weapons with the less frequently seen textures.
We are still working out the loot drops from the updated event, as far as the rarity type of the weapons, at this point we are still planning to keep Supreme drops to Expeditions.
We’re not planning to change the rolls on existing weapons. If you prefer the min damage roll over the velocity roll, you can use the reroll feature to receive it on your weapon.
We will be adding a few more things to add some exploration elements into the game, there are a lot of unused spaces in Paradise, and of course as we add new content we will add more pursuits. We are saving some of the shrill pursuits for when we have more content to flush out a more worthwhile pursuit (we had problems releasing pursuits related to each other in stages in the past).
We’ll take a look at the rate, I believe it is much higher chance for that specific Arkbreak in Silicon Valley, we can double check the other parts of the world.
Just fixed this yesterday – will be fixed for when Solstice comes around again because the Armistice event is ending this weekend.

That certainly doesn't sound like it should happen. You are better off reporting it to Trion directly. http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?222712-Defiance-Bug-Bash was a good place for it.
