Posted by on May 4, 2015 in Developer Blog, Eric Musco, leveling | 0 comments

Community Manager for Star Wars: The old Republic Eric Musco, posted a developer blog about the new The Epic Story XP Boost. This XP boost is a subscriber only bonus, that will let you run through level 1-50 doing only your class quests. Check it out:   Hello everyone, let’s talk about the Epic Story XP Boost and how it’s an improvement over our 12x boost that we gave prior to Shadow of Revan. Our Epic Story XP Boost allows all subscribers to level from 1-50 by playing only their Class Missions and from 50-55 on Makeb by playing only the Rise of the Hutt Cartel main storyline. This Boost does not affect Shadow of Revan as it was already designed to be a more streamlined leveling experience. If you have never played the original 8 Class stories, there has never been a better time to dive in! With the Epic Story XP Boost we have made some exciting improvements over our initial 12x offering from last fall.  These improvements include travel, itemization, and quality of life...

New SWTOR Story blog: The Sixth Line: Part One

Posted by on Apr 25, 2015 in Developer Blog | 0 comments

BioWare just posted a new  SWTOR story blog. This one is focusing on the Sixth Line of Jedi and their leader Master Surro The Sixth Line: Part One The once-ripe fields of Balmorra lay barren, pockmarked by heavy artillery. The defaced bedrock was the handiwork of not only the Sith Empire but the Balmorran Resistance. One would hope each side might be more careful with the object they were fighting for. The desperate do not possess gentle hands… and these were truly desperate times. Master Surro stared across the open land from the relative safety of her makeshift mountain encampment. Her eyes were sharp, catching even the faintest movement of charred grass in the afternoon breeze. The air was dry and warm. A sheen of sweat covered Surro’s skin beneath her heavy armor. Three Jedi waited with Surro on the overlook. Garault, her second in command, was tall and broad shouldered. An angry scar marred his chin — a present from the Imps. Landai, a Mirialan, paced behind them, arms crossed....

Developer Blog: One Night in the Dealer’s Den

Posted by on Feb 14, 2015 in Developer Blog | 0 comments

BioWare posted a new roplaying developer post at the official website. In case you are wondering who Jonas Balkar is,  he is from the Trooper’s class story. This is the SIS agent that Havok Squad teams up with a lot. Below is a thoroughly entertaining read. I love the idea of Balkar being this annoyance that Theron can’t get rid of. Check it out: Theron Shan sat shackled to a jukebox in one of the backrooms of the Dealer’s Den. The air was stuffy, smelling of body odor and spilled drinks. His lip was swollen from the first punch of the evening and he counted at least two broken ribs. In retrospect, all of this was inevitable. He could blame the Twi’lek who had falsely accused him of cheating at sabacc, or even his Houk captor, but they were merely side effects, a consequence of a larger mistake. No, there was only one person to blame for this. The one who had put him up to a “night on the town.” Jonas Balkar. “Hey!” Theron recoiled as the Houk’s fat finger poked the...

SWTOR Story update: The Price of Power

Posted by on Feb 5, 2015 in Developer Blog | 0 comments

BioWare posted a new role play update ion the official SWTOR Website. Not sure who wrote it yet, but it is definitely worth a read. Check it out below: The Imperial Guard stood at attention as Darth Lachris strode down the hall to the Dark Council Chamber. Red sand clung to her hair and robes, the color an intense contrast to the sterile walls of the Academy. She did not presume to know why her master had summoned her. Assumptions were dangerous, an acolyte’s move that she had long outgrown. The door opened with a hiss. Darth Marr sat alone, still as the statues of dead Sith carved into Korriban’s bedrock. Upon reaching the middle of the room, Darth Lachris kneeled. Sweat ran down her back despite the cool air inside the chamber. “Master,” she whispered. The cords and spikes of the armor encasing Darth Marr’s body gleamed in the chamber’s blue glow. He remained seated and silent, but she knew he was aware of her presence. Her master possessed the shape of a man, yet his voice was...

Dev Blog: Welcome to Shadow of Revan!

Posted by on Dec 10, 2014 in Developer Blog, Shadow of Revan | 0 comments

Shadow of Revan expansion is now official live. Technically opened last week, but for non-subscribers, the formal digital launch date was yesterday. With that Associate Producer For Star Wars: The old Republic, Andrew Horwitz, wrote a blog update over at the official websites, and of course BioWare also released a new trailer to coincide with the official launch. Check it out: Welcome to the launch of our latest expansion – Shadow of Revan! The Shadow of Revan Digital Expansion is the grand culmination of the Forged Alliances story arc. Revan is ready to make his boldest move yet, and we are excited to share it with you. When we started developing Shadow of Revan, we wanted to go back to our BioWare roots and focus on the story. We know that BioWare story is at the top of the list for things players want to experience in Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, and we think we’ve delivered that with Shadow of Revan. This expansion is the effort of a lot of dedicated work from people who care...
