SWTOR: Masterwork Gear Changes in patch 5.10

Here is a new post by Eric Musco on how Masterwork gear will work with SWTOR Patch 5.10 Check it out: Masterwork Gear Changes in 5.10 | 11.20.2018, 01:50 PM   Hey folks, For those of you who are familiar with current Masterwork gearing plans from PTS, you will notice some changes. Otherwise, this may be an introduction to how all of this will work in 5.10. Throughout this post when I refer to Masterwork gear, I am referring to the new 252 and 258 item rating gear being introduced in 5.10.

SWTOR Patch 4.1 Maintenance Delayed due to External Networks

BioWare are having trubles with SWTOR Patch 4.1. SO far the maintenance has been delayed due to external network issue. There is currently no ETA on when the servers will come online.   Maintenance: 9 February 2016 | 02.09.2016, 05:28 PM Hey folks, We are nearing my “best case scenario” of one hour. We are not ready to bring the servers live yet, but we are still looking good. We are continuing to push the update out across our live servers, where we will then test these changes again. Assuming at that point, that everything looks good, we will bring the servers online. I am being told that it is possible that all of this can be complete within an hour. So, another best case ETA of one hour from the time of this post, or 6:30 PM CT. Thanks everyone. -eric Maintenance: 9 February 2016 | 02.09.2016, 04:33 PM…

Patch 1.3 is coming this summer (soon) and we have a bit of information to get us started regarding what we can expect from the game.

How did you expect players to react, and how did that compare with the actual reaction? What are your plans for future world events? Daniel Erickson: We were hoping for three things: to surprise the players, to create community interaction, and encourage open world PvP on the PvP servers. All three were far more successful than we had any right to hope for. The…
