Check it out: Targeting GearWe talked about this in the last post but just to reiterate: we hear your concerns about gear dropping too randomly and so we are introducing mechanisms to work towards exactly what you want (with one change from last post). Here is what is available in this patch: New vendors will sell almost every set tactical and set bonus for tech fragments and credits.

SWTOR 5.10 PTS Refresh #3 Operations Notes

Here is more changes to the Machine operations coming in game update 5.10. The patch is currently playable on the public test servers. Onward we go, brave testers! There’s a skip button for Nahut down now, as well as delicious 258 gear! The components are a little trickier, but I have confidence that you all can handle the execution complexity. As a warning: This is likely the last refresh where Tyth will be playable. We need to start pushing forward and picking at the later encounters, so earlier encounters are going to start becoming unpullable as we go forward. General: Tier 5 Legendary Gear (258) is now available from purchase from ED-5E L at the Odessen landing area. There is also a vendor selling 258 components. To try and ease the total run time of the GftM operation in non-master modes, the health of non-boss encounters have been reduced by…

SWTOR 5.10 PTS Refresh #2 Operations Notes

Here are the latest patch notes for the SWTOR Public test server. These patch notes mainly focus on operations: Build system gremlins do indeed seem to be firmly under control, therefore we’ll be able to get back to a much regular update cadence. Still, due to the lost time we’re going to be accelerating the pacing of stuff a bit (at least on the operations side of things) just to make extra sure we can get eyes on stuff with enough time to iterate/implement feedback. Tyth: Apologies for the inversion nonsense, that should be fixed now. Ditto for the questionably functional skip button, which should also be fixed now. Inversion’s pull is getting a threat multiplier to offset the DPS loss to make tanking a little more stable. You may still experience some token panic for the first GCD after a pull (when multiple people are pulled), but it should…

Here is the latest PTS patch notes for Star Wars: THe old Republic   5.10 PTS Refresh #1 (25th of October, 2018) | 10.25.2018, 08:21 PM First, sorry for the delay in getting a PTS refresh out to you all. The server gremlins came out in full force, conspiring to keep us apart… While their eventual defeat was inevitable –for love indeed conquers all –it doesn’t lessen our longing in the meanwhile. Second, thanks a ton to everyone who’s been hopping on the PTS. We’ve had a loooot of activity. Thanks especially to those of you who have hopped on to take a moment to run through Story / Veteran modes, as it’s arguably even more important that we get those adjustments correct! Alright. Onto the refresh notes: General: The Ossus Daily Area is now ready for PTS testing, and for the first time players will be able to access the area! *pokerface*Just…
