In the news, we cover what’s in the just released Game Update 5.1.2, and the announcement of a new gear tier and 100 more Command Ranks. Then in our discussion, returning guest Dr SWTOR provides some professional insight into last week’s topic of gaming as a way of dealing with depression and anxiety.
We now know that The Last Jedi is referring to multiple Jedi, not just Luke Skywalker.
Chill announced his upcoming new podcast, CryptoBiography. It will be about people’s stories. It will not necessarily be SWTOR- or gaming-related. He will need people to talk with! Please send your stories via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to him in audio form, in written for him to read, or for longer bits we can set up an interview and record it via Skype or other means. The website is under construction, but you can find out more about the show on Facebook and Twitter (@cryptobiography).

- Game Update 5.1.2 was deployed on Tuesday during regular maintenance. This includes the addition of Unassembled Components to PvP missions, and increased Unassembled Components from warzones and GSF matches.
- Unassembled Components are not yet bound to legacy, but it’s being considered.
- If your DvL event armor has apparently gone missing, here’s where you may find it.
- In Game Update 5.2: War for Iokath, a new tier of gear (Tier 4) and 100 Command Ranks will be added. More about that on the next show, as a wealth of information was released on the day after we recorded.
- Details about the Community Cantina to be held at Star Wars Celebration will come in the next week or two, though we do know that it will be off-site (not within the Celebration venue).
