50 Million Credits for Guild Ships

Posted by on Aug 11, 2014 in Galactic Strongholds | 0 comments

If you want a guild ship, you better be ready to open up your pockets. SWTOR will charge 50 million credits for guild ships. Eric Musco, Community Manager for Bioware, announced recently on the livestream that this is how much it will cost for guild ships in the Galactic Strongholds expansion. It’s not surprising that it will cost credits. I think all players were pretty much expecting that. The real question lies in how much and whether or not it would be “too much” for your average guild. While moderate to large size guilds will probably not have any trouble with the 50 million credits, it could pose a problem with smaller guilds. I always played MMORPGs with a partner and we would often name our guilds “Just the Two of Us”. In some games like WoW and EverQuest we would even have to get other people to sign our charters to start the guilds and then boot them out later so it truly was “just the two of us”. But the amount of credits they are...

GSH Master Artisan Guide Compendium

Posted by on Aug 8, 2014 in crafting, Galactic Strongholds, Guide | 0 comments

If you’d like to know more about SWTOR crafting, we have a fantastic guide for you. From Lowku, we have a 3-part guide on 2.9 Galactic Strongholds crafting, as well as some basics in crafting in general. As we have mentioned here, 2.9 is bringing a lot of (hopefully good) changes to crafting. Some items that were once considered useful junk will now be highly sought after. Gathering lists, items and other crafting supplies now might be a good idea if you plan to do any 2.9 crafting. He tells us a little of what you can expect in these guides: “To help myself prepare, I’ve compiled my old gathering list, my credit guide, and all the new crafting information for the Fabrication Kits traded for decorations and War Supplies. What’s left is an absolutely massive amount of information that I had to break up into different parts just to get it done.” In addition to sharing the guides with us all, Lowku also offers some tips for getting the most from the guides....

Galactic Living Ep3 Livestream Q&A Notes

Posted by on Jul 18, 2014 in Galactic Strongholds | 0 comments

BioWare had another livestream yesterday, showing of gameupdate 2.9. This time Eric Musco and Courtney Woods showed how decorating will work. You can check it out below, but if you are more a reading type of person, Dulfy have put together the Q&A notes. These are readable below the video. Tomorrow the team will do a First Look Preview on Customizing a Dromund Kaas Skyrise Apartment with SWTOR Fansite OotiniCast. Q&A Rooms already exist inside a house but you cannot access them unless you unlock them first by interacting with the door of a specific room and pay the unlocking cost. Stronghold items that give you buffs? No items like that. Strongholds do give you rested XP. Fleet chat in strongholds or riot? Our current decision is still planetary chat. Can you become Kephess? Yes All strongholds have massive hooks to fit in ships. Some of them have roofs that may not fit the ship perfectly. Can we choose which room we unlock as the subscriber rewards? No, it is static and same...

Legacy Storage Info

Posted by on Jul 17, 2014 in Eric Musco, forum post, Galactic Strongholds | 0 comments

With the upcoming game update to Star Wars the old Republic – Galactic Strongholds, BioWare will be introducing new legacy storage. Eric Musco took some time yesterday, updating the community on the official SWTOR forums on what to expect: here is a C/P: Hey folks, I know there are a few questions surrounding Legacy storage and although I can’t answer everything here are some of the bigger answers: How do I get Legacy storage? You will get Legacy storage for free with the completion of the “Introduction to Strongholds Mission” upon acquiring your first Stronghold. Legacy storage will also be craftable and is possible to appear on the Cartel Market. (In both cases this means it would be available on the GTN for credits as well) If I add another Legacy storage to my Stronghold, does this add more storage space? It does not. Adding more Legacy storage “units” will simply add another access point, similar to how the cargo hold works right now. You can...
