Here are the patch notes for Star Wars The Old Republic Game Update 5.4 named “Crisis on Umbara”. The gameupdate is launching tomorrow August 22nd. Check it out below:

Highlights

  • New Flashpoint “Crisis on Umbara” - Prepare to lead the ultimate covert assault: battle your way across a moving train, brave the wilds of a dark new world, and more in a high-stakes new Flashpoint! When a deadly traitor is tracked to the shadow-world of Umbara, you’ll need to lead a strike team to confront the betrayer before the galaxy is thrown back into war. Available in [Solo] Story, Repeatable Story, Veteran, and Master Modes.
  • New Stronghold “Umbara Mobile Base” - Once you’ve uncovered the traitor, expand your command with a new Stronghold, the Umbara Mobile Base! For the first time, personalize your very own moving train and enjoy the sights as the shadow world’s eerie landscape passes by.
  • Ranked Season 9 Begins! With Game Update 5.4, Ranked players will be receiving their rewards for the end of Season 8. That also marks the beginning of Season 9, so get in there and go berserk!
  • Senya Tirall Customization – Senya can now have her appearance customized and take advantage of your favorite armor sets!
  • Item Rating Display – A new addition has been made to the character sheet which displays your average item rating. This will help a player determine their overall power level. Additionally, the new Crisis on Umbara Flashpoint has a minimum item rating requirement to queue for in group finder.

General

  • The amount of damage which is shielded will now be displayed in the combat log as intended.
  • Corrected an issue where the player would be unable to interact with a Stronghold hook while using a filter in the decoration UI.
  • The Manaan Stronghold is now properly set as a rest area.
  • The Conquest Objective “Critical Missions: Galactic Flashpoints” now correctly states that it requires Veteran Flashpoints. The objective has not changed, this change addressed a typo.
  • The Guild interface will no longer jump to the top of the list if a member note or rank is adjusted.
  • Accidentally entering a space as the first character in the decoration UI will no longer stop the search from returning results.
  • Companions can now be summoned while moving.
