Begin Your Legacy with Game Update 1.2!

The big day is here! Game Update 1.2, also called the Legacy Update is here. It’s live today and while the center focal point of the update is the Legacy System, that is not the only thing new you will find in the game as of today.

Here’s an overview from SWTOR.com news:

In addition to the many new gameplay systems, Game Update 1.2 adds a brand new Operation Explosive Conflict and Warzone Novare Coast, both of which take place on the never-before seen planet of Denova. Furthermore, players will be able to experience the new Flashpoint The Lost Island, the second part of the Rise of the Rakghouls storyline introduced with the Kaon Under Siege Flashpoint.

Game Update 1.2: Legacy also includes new in-game items, such as new armor sets for every character class, and a number of game fixes. You can learn about all of the new content and bug fixes in detail by reading the Game Update 1.2 Patch Notes.

The Legacy Update gives us Guild Banks, User Interface customization, unifying your armor colors, and late-game crafting and additional game systems to make your experience in the game more enjoyable. While it’s not without bugs, as we are seeing being reported throughout the day, all in all it was a pretty smooth deployment of the game update.

From BioWare:

“You can learn more about the Legacy system in our Developer Dispatch: The Legacy System.”

So tell us what you think of 1.2 so far?
