1.2.0c Patch Notes 4/19/2012

Servers are now back up after some Unscheduled Maintenance.  Considering that this patch was more or less done for the event fixes alone I’m glad they tossed in a pile of extra fixes. As we talked about a few days ago, BioWare did some fixes to the Warzone also this time. The warzone commendations are significantly increased. Even for a win. I just won a Voidstar, Novare Coast and an Alderaan. Got 154, 141 and 120 warzone commendations.  Check out the patch notes below: 1.2.0c Patch Notes 4/19/2012 General Corrected an audio issue that could cause a loud, perpetual “jet engine” sound that is most noticeable on the Republic and Imperial Fleets. Corrected a rare issue that could cause players to be unable to access their guild. Classes and Combat Bounty Hunter Mercenary Heatseeker Missile: This ability will now only gain extra damage from your additional stacks of Heat Signatures and…

Rakata and Battlemaster itemization changes reverted on the PTS

Now Rakata and Battlemaster itemization changes are reverted on the PTS and you keep the extra expertise. This post on Reddit explains: I was working on some PvE stat comparisons last night and found something odd: the rakata set on the PTS and live were giving me identical stats. At first I thought it was just a glitch but then I went and double checked both Rakata and Battlemaster on Live and PTS. The re-itemization they were doing on the PTS got reverted back but you keep the extra expertise on the Battlemaster. Not sure if it is a mistake or intended but I didn’t see much on the patch notes about it. Here is an image to illustrate what I am talking about.. http://i.imgur.com/nxR8O.jpg For those who don’t know the background story. When 1.2 came out on the PTS, many players saw their Rakata and Battlemaster stats changed –…

SWTOR Guild Summit Legacy Presentation

The Legacy Presentation was one of the most important parts of the Guild Summit. This is because we learned that what is currently just a pretty bar was actually intended to be the very lifeforce of the entire game! The Legacy System will be intertwined in everything else that happens in the game. It will affect each system of the game and the wait is almost over! The devs explain that they were sad to have to launch SWTOR without the fully working Legacy System in place but they had to pull it back to get the finishing touches on it. Now it’s finally nearing completion and ready for us all to experience. It’s a labor of love and they are hoping we will love it! Here are the highlights of what the full Legacy System will bring us: Family tree: decide your allies, kids, wives/husbands – its super cool…
