If you missed the SWTOR live stream coverage last week, or you’re just recapping things now, TORWars has the coverage available right now in this post.
Here’s a snippet:
Game Update 2.2 – According to Bruce Maclean, the main focus of Game Update 2.2 is guilds. Planned are new elder game crafting options and new guild bonuses as well as a unified fleet chat channel. Bruce also went on to say that while Guilds are the focus, the “centerpiece” of GU 2.2 is Nightmare Operations.
Double XP Weekends – Will be going live during the weekends starting June 22nd until July 2nd with an extension on July 4th weekend. He also mentioned that in addition to new graphical upgrades, we should be expecting a new daily area coming in GU 2.3 as well as a new recurring event for levels 15 and up. They emphasized that this is a very “cool event and are very excited”.

It is our greatest pleasure to be able to bring you great stories from SWTOR and Star Wars fans. It warms my heart to see gamers do good, especially when it involves children. So it is with my greatest pleasure that I get to bring you the story of TOR for TOTS. 4 gamers played SWTOR live for 24 hours accepting donations, then purchased tons of rocking Star Wars toys to donate to charity. How awesome is that?
This thread went up on the official forums to tell people about the event:
If you want some good karma, head over to this stream, or any of the streams that page links to; these guys are giving all donations to charity. Learn how to play your class and nerd out for the kids all at once!

We have some more datamined info for you courtesy of SWTOR Miner on Reddit. Again, keep in mind that data mined info is not guaranteed to be in the game. It’s mostly speculation and rumor.

However, a great number of things we see in PTS data mines do end up actually in the game. Either way, it’s fun the pass the time- especially when there is not a lot of other new info coming out.
So anyway… let’s take a look at this mined data.
