Clarification on SWTOR Season 4 Weapon Rewards

Posted by on Apr 16, 2015 in pvp | 0 comments

  SWTOR developer Alex Modny responded to some questions regarding the upcoming season 4 PvP weapon rewards. Season 4 Weapon Rewards | 04.16.2015, 01:58 PM Originally Posted by Jinre_the_Jedi Two questions: 1)Will the weapons have particle effects like the S3 ones? 2) Will we get off hands too? Specifically vibroknives and generator/shields? 1) There aren’t any fire-esque visual effects on the Swashbuckling weapons but they do have visual effects that adjust to the color crystal attached. In the teaser blog you can see the circle/gears on the side of the blasters, those rotate and glow pretty fantastically. On the lightsabers the crystal glows at the base of the hilt and right above the guard. More extravagant visual effects are great and something we want to do more of for season rewards but creating ones that fit into the lore and aesthetic of the game is a delicate process.

Know your Enemy: The Simple Guide for Class Symbols and Stances

Posted by on Apr 14, 2015 in pvp | 0 comments

If you want to have one great visual source for everything you need to know about the different class symbols and stances, you are in luck! While it is color coded and contains images and icons as well to help you know, the main goal of this Know Your Enemy guide is to match the stance to the spec. Have you ever struggled to figure out what your opponent’s spec was so you knew how to properly combat it? Some hybrid classes can be really challenging when it comes to figuring this out. So now you have this handy dandy chart to help you Know Your Enemy! From the creator: I tried to keep it simple. So if a Discipline have a number of AoE skills i marked it as a AoE. Focus/Rage is close to Burst, but as Smash still have some minor AOE capabilities and some AoE buffs in Rage ive put it as a AoE spec.. Sabo/Engi still have grenades, probes and other AoE buffs in skill tree and as it is less bursty than MM/SS i marked them as AoE. Though the main goal of the guide was to match a stance...

Posted by on Apr 7, 2015 in pvp, Stronghold | 0 comments

Stronghold Labels sold by the Warzone Decoration vendors will become BoP when patch 3.1.2 goes live today. This is to prevent players from trading them for warzone commendations between characters. PSA: Changes to Stronghold Titles Coming in 3.1.2 Tomorrow | 04.06.2015, 04:18 PM Hey PvPers, Heads up on a change that some of you spotted as being in Game Update 3.2 on PTS, it is actually a part of 3.1.2 which is coming tomorrow. The change is around three Stronghold titles, which some players are using to move around Warzone Commendations in a way we did not intend. Here are the changes: The following Stronghold Titles are now Bind on Pickup: Stronghold Label: Imperial Sanctuary Stronghold Label: Republic Sanctuary Stronghold Label: Starfighter’s Lounge If you have any of these titles unbound, they will bind to you as of tomorrow.

  BioWare just announced the complete SWTOR season 4 ranked PvP rewards. Season 4 will end on April 28, 2015. The culmination of Season 4 is fast approaching so batten down the hatches! The end of Season 4 will come with Game Update 3.2 and your rating, when the servers come down for the update, will determine which tier you are in and what rewards you receive. The higher your tier the more booty you will plunder! Just like in previous seasons, the Highest Earned rating that determines the tier you are in – not Current – so no need to feel like you are risking Rating by going after the next tier up! To see your Highest Earned Rating, check the Warzone Rating and Stats page in the Warzone Queue GUI. Please note that the Rating displayed on the Leaderboards are the Current Ratings, not Highest Earned. Once Season 4 has come to an end and all Ratings have been reset, the Season 4 Leaderboards will be archived off so you can always reference who was tops in previous seasons.  ...
