OotiniCast Episode 19

This week is all about the detail in Game Update 1.2, which is now being tested on the PTS! Oni and Agi join your hosts Chill and Teo to discuss the changes that are coming.

1. Introduction
2. Question to the panel
3. Trivia question
  • This week’s challenge: Being stealthy on the Death Star is a good thing if you’re part of the Rebel Alliance. But in “A New Hope,” there was one Imperial who walked around silently on the Death Star, despite apparently wearing boots. Which Imperial, and why?
  • If you are interested in being entered in the random drawing for an in-game prize offered on Republic-side Space Slug, please send your answer to ootinicast@gmail.com

  • Patch 1.1.5c was deployed during Tuesday’s maintenance.
  • An unexpected patch 1.1.5d turned up on Friday morning. This was during early evening Friday night for Australia, with Stephen Reid posting about why this was necessary.

  1. Love you guys. Keep up the great work, I listen every week. Good luck to your first foray into ops Teo, look forward to hearing about the experience next week!

  2. Oh and btw Oni, cybertech is plenty viable atm. Granted, I’ve been running hardmodes and nightmare ops to get the necessary alien data cubes (and indeed the schematics) to craft Columi earpieces. I’ve proc’d, in total, 4 mastercraft Columi earpieces that sold for ~900k apiece on the GN, given that they are best in slot. Yes, with that augment slot their stat value is superior to even the Rakata pieces. Furthermore, the standard columi sells for plenty also, at roughly 300k apiece on the GN.
