Thank You Dark Horse Comics

Posted by on Sep 2, 2014 in comic | 0 comments

  We love Star Wars and we love comics. As fans, it can be difficult to picture a world without Star Wars and quite frankly, why would we want to? But such a time did exist and we have one name to thank for helping end that dark era in Star Wars history: Dark Horse EUCantina.net brings us some interesting news about Dark Horse Comics this week: This week marks the final scheduled release in the Expanded Universe, or as it has been rebranded, Legends time line.  Dark Horse comics has the unique privilege of closing it out with the final issue in the Legacy series. For those who don’t know, Dark Horse has been putting out Star Wars stories since 1991. It was Dark Horse comics that helped rekindle the Star Wars fandom after a dark period in the 80s when they stopped making Star Wars action figures and Marvel stopped making the comics. Again, EUCantina explains why this is so significant: It wasn’t until 1991 that a spark of life began to return to the galaxy far far away.  Timothy...

As you may already know, there are many rumors going around about the release of Star Wars Battlefront 3 and everyone wants to be the first to release some exciting news about the game. We try to bring you the news as we find it confirmed but sometimes it’s also fun to mull over the rumors. Sometimes speculation becomes fact when the game is released. Even when it doesn’t, it can be fun to imagine while we wait for official news. So here are some things we know about Battlefront 3. First, EA has the sole rights to development of all Star Wars games but they have brought in some subsidiaries like DICE, Bioware and Visceral Games to help them develop the popular, upcoming title.  We know that the game is currently in production and that...

Galactic Strongholds – Gathering vs Crafting Prices Spreadsheet

Posted by on Aug 29, 2014 in crafting, Galactic Strongholds | 0 comments

Are you curious what it will cost for gathering and crafting supplies for Galactic Strongholds? You are not alone and as usual, a member of the community has looked for a way to create a tool to help with this. The Gathering vs Crafting Prices Spreadsheet was created with data from just one server at one point in time so it is of course, subject to change, but it gives you a good baseline idea. In time, if it’s worked on a bit more, it could be a very good tool. You can also take the spreadsheet as is and then update it for your server and your own needs so you always have an up to date tool to help you reference costs. The spreadsheet lists the server of the GTN prices being marked, the date and time and detailed info about the...

Patch Notes – 8/29/2014 – 2.9c Patch Notes

Posted by on Aug 29, 2014 in Patch 2.9, Patch notes | 0 comments

  BioWare is adding a new patch today, that will fix the Conquest Flashpoints exploit, tha tsome players are using. Flashpoint Conquest Objectives are intended to be one-time only, not infinitely repeatable. The only Flashpoint Objectives that can be repeated are the Group Finder ones – and those can only be done when you have the Daily Mission for the Group Finder available. Below are the patch notes: General Flashpoint Conquest Objectives are now non-repeatable as intended. The Galactic Starfighter Invasion Bonus for Ilum now applies properly. I really don’t understand the point of this. PvP/GSF grinders are doing stuff and getting points all day long. This week we’re not getting easy points for the five-minute...

TOR TV: Opening 24x Gatekeeper’s Stronghold Packs

Posted by on Aug 27, 2014 in Cartel Market, TOR TV | 0 comments

The first in a series of Galactic Stronghold cartel packs have arrived… with more items AND they’re even cheaper than they used to be. With decorations now included in these packs, can Charlie find something worth keeping? We love these videos and articles where people open their packs for us and show us what they get. It’s a lot of fun getting caught up in the opening, hoping they will find something rare or at very least, some cool and useful stuff so the purchase is not unfounded. In addition to being fun to watch (although he’s slow), there is also a chance to win some packs for yourself so check it out and find out how. The verdict from this and prior experiences? Don’t open packs if you are looking for...

Dev Blog – WANTED: DEAD AND DISMANTLED

Posted by on Aug 26, 2014 in Developer Blog | 0 comments

BioWare just posted a new developer blog, in there usual story telling fashion.  This one is a conversation between the Assassin droid BH-7X, witch was used by the Bounty Brokers Association, and a guy named Kern. Story is really starting to build up for Forged Alliances. Like the last one, this one is also written by Charles Boyd You can read the full story over at the official Star Wars: The old Republic website, or you can read our copy paste of the full blog post below: “Your ambush failed.” The droid’s voice almost sent Kern out of his seat. He’d been lost in thought, hadn’t heard it come in. One more lapse he could blame on getting old. Make that two more, if the thing was telling the truth. It got impatient for an answer and...
