Given the unexpected arrival of Game Update 1.7, we discuss the various additions and changes, including our initial experiences with the Relics of the Gree world event.

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Frankie (a.k.a. Drako)!
3. The Holofeed
- Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree was deployed during Tuesday’s regular maintenance.
- It included the new character perk “Priority Transport: Personal Starship” which is intended to have a default cooldown of 24 hours, with global Legacy unlocks allowing it to be reduced to an hour. This isn’t quite working as intended.
- GTN searches are temporarily limited to 4000 results (i.e., 500 pages), and all search terms must be 3 or more characters. Unfortunately this means that numbers (like those used to distinguish between mods) cannot be searched on. This restriction should be lifted in a future patch, as an alternative solution to the performance issue caused by broad searches that were previously possible is found.
- Star Wars: The Old Republic Insider Episode 4 was published (also on YouTube).
- Cartel Market Update: February 12th, 2013 lets us know what’s changed on the Cartel Market.
- Game Update 1.7 Developer Blog: Relics of the Gree Event gives us an overview of the new world event.
- BioWare likes the idea of a barber shop, but no promises on when it’ll be added to the game.
- SMS billing has been added for a number of European countries and Australia, to allow the purchase of the smallest pack of Cartel Coins (450).

Ryan (a.k.a. Grav) has written another article, titled “PUG”. It may encourage you to be a little more forgiving (or at least understanding) the next time your Operation group or Flashpoint party PUGs in an extra member.
Just a reminder to check out Jacob Hausman’s article, “Enduring Shadow, the PvP Tank Guide”, if you are interested in PvP tanking.
Finally, Dulfy’s SWTOR titles guide may be just what you’re looking for, to find that perfect title that suits your character’s personality.
