A Mother’s Hope – SWTOR Story Blog

a-mothers-hope-swtor-story-blog

If there is one thing BioWare is good at, it is story. Actually I’ll go as far as saying that it is the best story creating video game creating company in the industry. Here is the prove. a short story on Vaylin and Senya written by our main man Drew Karpyshyn. Senya braced herself as she began her descent; the polluted atmosphere of Ord Mantell made turbulence common. Tightening her grip on the controls, she fought to stabilize the shuttle as it rattled and bucked. A sharp, high pitched beep rose from the back of the ship, the various machines hooked up to Arcann’s unconscious body in the makeshift med-bay signaling in protest as they were jostled by the rough ride. She was coming in fast and steep, making the turbulence worse. But the longer she stayed airborne, the greater the chance sensors from the surface would pick her up. The…

How SWTOR Could Compromise on Galactic Command

swtor-producer-live-strean-17th-october-galactic-command-overview-3

Are you sick and tired of the game of chance lottery that is the Galactic Command system? You won’t be alone in this thinking because many fans of the game have spoken out about how this system frustrates them. While we know it’s not likely they are going to change it at all, our pal Xam Xam from Xam Xam Says has an idea about how they could compromise. While we don’t expect them to do it, it can be fun to talk about the possibilities and who knows? Maybe Bioware is listening and will decide to give it a try! You can read the full post here but here’s the basic idea from Xam Xam: “If SWTOR brought back Commendation/Crystal vendors into the game but kept the Galactic Command system as it is, would that be acceptable? Reduce how many Commendations we earn a little but still have them as a…

swtor-hoth-uprising-developer-gameplay-livestream

If you wanted to learn more about Star WarsHhoth Uprising, there was a developer life stream on November 10th that cleared up a lot of things for us. The hosts, community manager Eric Musco and the 2 hosts from The Bad Feeling Podcast show – Chuck and Brian, used this lives stream event to show a live playthrough on a test server of Firefrost. Firefrost is one of the new Uprisings, found on Hoth. They mixed up the format a bit from what we are used to in resent producer live streams and it worked out well. There wasn’t a lot of especially new info or details released but it’s a great overview for anyone who hasn’t been following along, and the game play is always fun to look at. Here are some highlights or takeaways from the event: We saw one of the new non mod-able 242 item level…

SWTOR Crafting in Eternal Throne

swtor-crafting-in-eternal-throne

We saved this story a few days, but Eric Musco updated the community  on the details of crafting in 5.0. Crafting in Eternal Throne | Hey folks, As we discussed yesterday on the livestream, one of the goals of crafting is that it will be a mechanism where someone can gear up an alt, catch up to their friends, or even gear an off-spec. With the launch of Eternal Throne you will find that there is a new grade of materials and higher level items which can be learned from your Crafting Trainer. For endgame crafting, the intent is that you will be able to craft items which are within 2 item rating of the best gear in that tier, but without a set bonus. The exception to this rule is tier 1, where you will be able to craft items equivalent to the best item rating in that tier….

screenshot_2014-01-06_19_20_28_758488

Eric Musco had another update on the official forums today, as he just infomed the community that that all cartel market passes will be bound on legacy from tomorrows patch 4.7.3, and removed with 5.0.   Important Information About Cartel Market Passes | 10.24.2016, 08:03 AM Hey folks, One of the things that we have talked about last week is our new Galactic Command system, only accessible to subscribers at Level 70. Galactic Command will serve as the single point of access for subscribers to earn rewards playing endgame content such as Operations and Warzones. As of the release of the Knights of the Eternal Throne, rewards from this gameplay is gained via Galactic Command, therefore passes are no longer viable. For example, a preferred player with a Weekly Pass: Operations would be able to play an Operation, but would not earn any rewards for doing so. Due to this change, we…
