SWTOR: changes to Daily Missions in 5.6 and 5.6.1

Eric Musco just updated the community on some changes to daily missions in game update 5.6 and 5.6.1 Hey folks, Ok, let’s talk about what changed in 5.6 and what is changing in 5.6.1 since they are tied together. 5.6 – In this Game Update we removed the Galactic Command interface from the game along with changing Group Finder to Activity Finder. As a part of this change some Missions were removed from the game as they were explicitly tied into either Galactic Command or Group Finder respectively. This is why the Daily Mission to send you to the those areas is no longer there. The weekly is intended to be the “wrapper” Mission for all of the dailies in that area, which is a change we made coming off of the “bugged” CXP values previously. This was a part of the steps we were taking to re-balance CXP across…

Eric Musco informed the community that server transfers will be available again with Patch 5.6 assuming everything goes to plan. Alright folks, here are the updates as I mentioned yesterday!

After that time they will go up to their new standard pricing of 1,000CC. I will let you all know on Monday if we are still on track for transfers to go live again on Tuesday and the exact timing for the sale pricing. Thanks everyone. -eric Join the forum discussion on this post

More Info on Master’s Datacron (Instant 70 boost)

BioWare just posted a new blog updating the players on  how the Master’s Datacron will work in Game Update 5.6. Starting with ’A Traitor Among the Chiss’ (Game Update 5.6) on November 28th, there will be a new item introduced to the Cartel Market called the Master’s Datacron. This item will allow you to take any non-maximum level (70) character on your account and immediately move them up to maximum level. One unique thing about this boost is that it doesn’t progress your character’s story at all, meaning this is a great way to play through the classic Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ storylines without worrying about your character level!   The Master’s Datacron also comes with the Eternal Commander Equipment bundle. Once you have boosted to max level and chosen your character’s Discipline (more on this below), you can use the equipment bundle to have a full set of level 70…

SWTOR Server Merges Information

Yesterday the SWTOR servers was merged into 5 new servers. Below information is from reddit: Why are the servers being merged? There are not as many players actively playing as there were years ago. Players have requested server merges for years to help boost queue times for group activities and to make it easier for players to more easily find others to play with. The population of the servers had also become extremely unbalanced – some servers like the Harbinger and the Red Eclipse had extremely high populations, many others had “ok” populations, but there were a few servers including Jung Ma and Prophecy of the Five that had very few players logging in to play on them. Server merges will ensure that new and returning players won’t accidentally wind up on “dead” servers, and should help queue times for those who enjoy group content including flashpoints, operations, PvP and GSF….
