The Concept of Money in Star Wars Universe Explained

When it comes to money, our routine life and soft science fiction are kinds of antipodes. The first one is based on objective reality, the second is totally built on imagination. Being a crucial aspect of reality, money is often simplified in sci-fi movies, especially in those which tread a fine line between fantasy and adventure fiction. Their plot may revolve around social inequality, power, money-related crimes, or relationships between rich and poor, but never revolves around money itself.   Thus, it may be hard to grasp the role of money in a fantasy movie. Star Wars belongs more to a space opera genre rather than to sci-fi, being focused on moral, political and spiritual issues instead of revealing an economical side of the universe. But today we are going to uncover the concepts of currency, trading system, and making money in the Galaxy.   Currencies in the Galaxy First…

SWTOR Bolster Plans for 5.10 and Beyond

Whenever we introduce new gear to the game, there is an inevitable conversation about what changes will be made to Bolster. As I mentioned in this thread, our original intention in 5.10 was to take Bolster and move it to 248. That thread along with the rest of the forums led to a lot of great feedback from all of you on how you feel about the state of Bolster, should it be higher, or lower, etc. That brought us to sit down and really look at what we want from Bolster now and going forward and so we are going to make an additional change. Let’s talk about why we originally landed on 248, where we are going next, and why.

SWTOR Guild Leveling in 5.10

Eric Musco took on the forum, informing the community about upcomming guilding levering changes comming with game update 5.10.   Check it out Hey folks, In Game Update 5.10 we will be introducing a brand new system to the game, Guild Leveling.

SWTOR 5.10 PTS Refresh #3 Operations Notes

Here is more changes to the Machine operations coming in game update 5.10. The patch is currently playable on the public test servers. Onward we go, brave testers! There’s a skip button for Nahut down now, as well as delicious 258 gear! The components are a little trickier, but I have confidence that you all can handle the execution complexity. As a warning: This is likely the last refresh where Tyth will be playable. We need to start pushing forward and picking at the later encounters, so earlier encounters are going to start becoming unpullable as we go forward. General: Tier 5 Legendary Gear (258) is now available from purchase from ED-5E L at the Odessen landing area. There is also a vendor selling 258 components. To try and ease the total run time of the GftM operation in non-master modes, the health of non-boss encounters have been reduced by…

SWTOR 5.10 PTS Refresh #2 Operations Notes

Here are the latest patch notes for the SWTOR Public test server. These patch notes mainly focus on operations: Build system gremlins do indeed seem to be firmly under control, therefore we’ll be able to get back to a much regular update cadence. Still, due to the lost time we’re going to be accelerating the pacing of stuff a bit (at least on the operations side of things) just to make extra sure we can get eyes on stuff with enough time to iterate/implement feedback. Tyth: Apologies for the inversion nonsense, that should be fixed now. Ditto for the questionably functional skip button, which should also be fixed now. Inversion’s pull is getting a threat multiplier to offset the DPS loss to make tanking a little more stable. You may still experience some token panic for the first GCD after a pull (when multiple people are pulled), but it should…
