SWTOR: Trading Scars – A Short Story on Umbara

If there is one thing BioWare does right it’s the story. No other MMORPG has the same depth as Star Wars: The old republic, and the team seams to be determent to keep this up. So with a new game update, comes a new story to explore. Here is a short story on Umbara: Veesh was scaring the rookie again. Nira watched as the Umbaran commando glanced to make sure the train compartment was sealed, then pulled back the edge of his sleeve to reveal a series of ugly welts snaking across his wrist. “Got this escorting a shipment last month. Banshee swooped in out of nowhere, right as we were crossing the canyon.” He smirked, his voice muffled by the visor of his helmet. “Latched onto my wrist long enough for the poison to seep in. The medics say I’m lucky to keep my arm.” Nira noticed the rookie…

SWTOR Change to Cartel Color Crystals and Weapon Tunings with Legacy Weapons

SWTOR Game Producer Keith Kanneg, had an interesting statement on the forums today, regarding the changes to legacy weapon color crystals, and weapon tuning swapping. Check it out: Change to Cartel Color Crystals and Weapon Tunings with Legacy Weapons | 07.11.2017, 10:42 PM Hey all, Let’s review today’s Crystals and Weapon Tuning change and what caused it. With Patch 5.2.2, we made a change so everyone could take advantage of the Weapon Tunings across their account. We did that by adding them into Collections. This is the same process we use for Flairs, Armor Sets, Mounts, Crystals, Weapons, Pets, and more. This appeared to be a very welcomed change, but over the past month we found out players were subverting the collection system by using an exploit related to Legacy Weapons. Sure, you can argue it’s been that way for a long time, but Weapon Tunings were new and being able to…
