OotiniCast Episode 164

Game Update 2.10: Forged Alliances is here, concluding the story arc that will lead us to the end-of-year expansion. In our discussion, we talk about some misconceptions that (hopefully very few) players have about SWTOR’s game mechanics.

1. Introduction

The guide authored by Teo is his GSH unlock comparison for building your Conquest bonus.

3. Holofeed

  • Game Update 2.9d was deployed on Thursday morning to implement the server-side fixes that should ensure that The Harbinger’s stability issues do not recur.
  • The short story “Remnants”, describing an adventure on Rakata Prime, was released.
  • Game Update 2.10: Forged Alliances was deployed on Tuesday morning. It includes the Legacy of the Rakata Tactical Flashpoint.
  • Ranked PvP Season 3 began with the release of Game Update 2.10. Our Leaderboards page has been updated to use the latest data; the archived results for Season 1 and Season 2 are also available.
  • A teaser for the upcoming end-of-year expansion will be released in a few days, with a full announcement coming before the end of September.
  • To avoid an issue that will prevent you from getting your personal Conquest reward (that should be delivered as soon as you reach the week’s personal goal), you should abandon a mission in your Mission Log with the title “Personal Conquest Reward”.
  • The reputation cap for the Binary Star Realty has been raised to its intended level.
  • The Selkath Console decoration appears to have changed such it cannot be repositioned in the same way that it was prior to Game Update 2.10.
