Below is an excerpt from a Dev Blog:
The new 224 SWTOR 4.0 EndGame Gear will drop from each boss in the “preferred” operation for selected week
Every week a different Hard Mode Operation will be designated as “High Priority”. Inside each boss will drop the highest gear available in Fallen Empire – items level 224 in addition to the normal item level 220 gear. The rest of the HM Operations for the same week will drop gear for “standard Hard Mode” item level 220. Furthermore, each boss will has a special token assigned to them, the loot will not be random!

Let me take a crack at some of these!
- Great question. Each week, one hard mode Operation is designated as a “High-Priority Target,” players can see which Operation this is by visiting the fleet and visiting the FP/Op section. There you will find a Target Analysis Computer with a holo version of the last boss of the Op with text specifying the Op, the boss will also have a buff indicating this inside the Op. Under normal circumstances, a HM boss will be dropping ilvl 220. If they are the High-Priority Target, they will also drop ilvl 224 in addition to their normal drops.
- THE HOLOGRAM IS ON THE VANGUARD SHIP WHERE YOU DO OPS NEAR THE ENTRANCE TO EV.
