3. Holofeed

  • The equipment removed from vendors due to their stats being redundant (there was huge overlap once the primary stats were merged into Mastery) will not be returned, though the armor appearances either exist elsewhere in-game or will be added over time.
  • Patch 4.0a was deployed on Thursday.
  • Insta-60s can be deleted and re-created if you do so before reaching level 61.
  • The “Face Your Destiny” trailer was released along with Knights of the Fallen Empire being made available for all subscribers.
  • Game Update 4.0.1 was deployed on Tuesday.
  • Extra hardware was added to increase server capacity.
  • BioWare is asking for feedback about the new Cartel Market pack design that came with Game Update 4.0 in this thread on the official forums.
