Here are the Class Changes in KOTET for the Bounty Hunter / Trooper Classes: Along with the 5 new levels coming in Eternal Throne each of the Classes are receiving changes including new abilities, new utilities, and more. For this post, let’s talk about the Bounty Hunter and Republic Trooper. This is just a sampling of the changes that are coming with Eternal Throne and are subject to change. Bounty Hunter Powertech Knights of the Fallen Empire left Powertechs in a good position as one of the most well-rounded classes in the game. With Knights of the Eternal Throne, we wanted to push the Powertech fantasy in a way that really made it feel unique and different from the Mercenary. Here are some of the changes we have made: Deadly Onslaught: New ability exclusive to Powertechs, replaces Death from Above which is now exclusive for Mercenaries. Searing Wave: New ability exclusive…

Commando/Mercenary Top 3 Answers

Eric Musco started a new “top 3 Answers” thread on the official forums. This time about Commando/Mercenary. Here is a Summary made by bstr413: 1: Sustained DPS for Gunnery Assault. Gunnery/Assault will get a (small) boost to its sustained damage after all AC’s have at least 1 good sustained damage spec. (Commando/Mercs have Assault Specialist/Pyrotech already.) Devs are looking for feedback on how to do this. Being able to heal should not decrease DPS. Many off-healer DPS specs are able to do great sustained DPS. 2: Defense in PvP. No new “emergency defense” move for Commandos/Mercs. Instead, current defensive moves will be improved. Devs are asking for inputs on how this should be done. Devs are looking to make Commandos/Mercs better in Ranked Arenas. 3: Assault Specialist / Pyrotech suggestions. Thank you for your suggestions for changing Assault Specialist / Pyrotech. We do not want to do the first few due to the…

Commando / Mercenary Changes Coming in 2.7

Eric Musco have been updating the community on the official forums, about the changes that are coming to Commando’s and Mercenary  in game update 2.7.  And I have to say this is great changes. Evening out the Full auto ticks was something I’ve wanted for so long too! I never understood how you open up with full auto and have shot probably 15 bolts at the target already and no damage has registered! If I had it my way (and I know this isn’t Burger King), I would have it do damage every .5 seconds so that even if you get interrupted in any way, you get as much damage possible on the target up to the moment you get interrupted. Hopefully this brings us up to par with the new shiny assault spec. Check out the full announcement below: Commando Source EricMusco Commando Changes Coming in 2.7 | 02.26.2014, 10:03…

“This is the last one before your posts go back to normal right?”“Yep!” I was excited to finish this last article, new ideas, the podcast, so much to do.“Did you figure out a name for the podcast?”I nodded. “Not a pun like Kai wanted, but still good.
