Custom SWTOR Topps Card

Custom SWtor Topps

If you’re not familiar with Topps cards, the company, founded in 1938, is famous for creating collectible trading cards, candy, chewing gum and other collectibles. Growing up in the 90s, baseball cards were the big thing (at least in my circles) but the company also makes other sports cards and even non-sports trading cards. They worked with the Disney Channel, for example, to create trading cards for Hannah Montana and High School Musical. They also made Pokemon trading cards, not to be confused with the Pokemon Trading Card Game from Wizards of the Coast. So what if they were to create Star Wars themed cards? What if they made SWTOR cards? What an awesome idea! Someone already had this idea but I cannot claim it as my own. A Reddit user named loststormtrooper came up with the idea and then made his own SWTOR Topps card. It’s not perfect and his logo actually says “The Force…

Eternal Empire Recon Walker changes comming to SWTOR

Eternal Empire Recon Walker

Eric Musco just informed the community that The Eternal Empire Recon Walker, previously a rare drop from Star Fortress, will drop in Eternal Championship and become bound on legacy. Hey folks, I wanted to pass on some information regarding a change to the Eternal Empire Recon Walker that is coming in Game Update 4.4. Currently, the Walker is a rare drop from The Exarch in Star Fortresses. We are making two changes to the mount. First, the Walker will now also be available from an Eternal Championship vendor. Second, we are changing the item from Bind on Equip to Bind on Legacy. If you have an active GTN sale at the time of 4.4’s release, this will behave normally. However at the time of sale or expiration, the item will become Bind on Legacy. Thanks everyone. -eric Join the forum discussion on this post

The Academy Ep 10 & 11 -“Gearing and Stat Optimization in 4.0”

swtor academy

Gearing and stats can be a confusing concept to a new player. This is just one more great benefit to follow The Academy series from swtorista. In the latest episodes, 10 and 11, she talks to us about these specific points. These are great episodes that delve more deeply into important aspects of enjoying SWTOR. If you know someone who is new to the game, or thinking of picking up SWTOR, we highly recommend you point them in the direction of the Academy. Even if you’ve been playing for a long time, you might still appreciate these videos so go ahead and give them a watch/listen.  Here’s what these two episodes are all about. Gearing up your character can be one of the most daunting tasks in the game. The first half of this episode talks about how to mod your gear, and the second half talks about stat optimization…

SWTOR: Actions Taken Against Patch 4.3 Exploiters

swtor exploit

As we mentioned yesterday, there is a major exploit going on in SWTOR right now. Eric Musco took on the forums and informed players on the patch 4.3 exploit that was going around and has since then being fixed. Current Exploit Action | 04.19.2016, 04:18 PM Hey folks, As many of you may have heard rumor of, there was an exploit which was introduced in Game Update 4.3. We have since addressed the issue and the exploit is no longer possible. However I wanted to share some details on what happened and what action we are taking. Without going into too much detail, there was an issue tied to certain players accounts which allowed them to very easily create large quantities of credits through use of in-game mail and trading. We got reports over the past few days that players randomly received very large sums of credits and this was instrumental…

An open letter to the SWTOR players

i-3vkFbxG-2100x20000

SWTOR Producer Ben Irving posted a rally nice open letter to SWTOR Players on the official forums. This letter address some of the concerns players have had with Knights of the fallen empire. Hi there! My name is Ben Irving, Producer for Star Wars: The Old Republic. I don’t often make posts in the forums, in fact, this may be my first ever post. Despite that, our whole team, myself included try to digest all of the internet for SWTOR information – The forums, Reddit, Facebook, YouTube, etc. Recently there have been questions and concerns around the quality of our releases and the ongoing support for SWTOR and I wanted to stop by to address those concerns. First off, I want to apologize for some of the issues you have experienced in the last couple of months. The monthly chapter release schedule is new and it has come with some…

Chekc it out: Character Transfers – Important Update | 04.19.2016, 12:49 PM Hey folks, Heads up on a change that is coming next Tuesday (4/26). Leading up to the Fallen Empire launch, we greatly reduced the cost of Character Transfers from 1,800 CC down to 90 CC.

This was a limited time offer which will be coming to an end. Starting Tuesday, the new price will be 1,000 CC which is adjusted to below the former rate of 1,800 CC. We feel this gives our players the option to Transfer at a reasonable rate while being in line with other services we…

BioWare teases new planet in SWTOR

BioWare teases new planet in SWTOR

BioWare just tweeted a screenshot of what looks like a new planet in Star Wars: The Old Republic. It is still unknown if it is a fully new planet for players to explore, or how it fits in to the story. The planets name is “Vandin”, and so far we can’t find any info on it in the Jedi achieves or on wookieepedia. That means we might have a new Voss on our hands. BioWare tends to be really good at building up new stories, so I am excited. Here are the official news: Prepare to journey to the mysterious planet of Vandin on May 5 in ‘Profit and Plunder’: https://t.co/8uBfvbBsS8 pic.twitter.com/rOsHdhlQo6 — The Old Republic (@SWTOR) April 18, 2016 Join the forum discussion on this post
