  • Game Update 5.1.3 was deployed on Tuesday 14 April.
  • Naming and shaming cheaters or exploiters is not permitted on the official forums; instead, contact Customer Support or PM Eric Musco directly.

  • Eric Musco discusses the ongoing war against credit sellers, and their recent strategy of compromising the accounts of players who have bought credits to spam others.
  • Game Update 5.2: The War for Iokath will be available on Tuesday 11 April.
