OotiniCast Episode 249

We cover the news, and discuss some great tips on how to be the best raider (operationer?) you can be!

1. Introduction

Jeremy’s post on the official forums lists his ideas for things to improve in SWTOR.

If you’re interested in joining Jeremy’s raid team (Australian east coast evenings), contact Jurrasto on The Harbinger (Empire), send him a PM on their guild site or apply to join.

Here is Teo’s Eternal Empire Recon Walker, a rare drop from the Exarch in all the Star Fortresses:

Chill pushed his stream from our Ootini Race onto YouTube.

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Garin! Thanks to Java Doggy, Gilront, Jessa’k, Drnaturalist, Kahz and Iggnacio for entering.

The mount manager mentioned by Swtorista can be found here.

Please send your tips to ootinicast@gmail.com by next Tuesday for a chance to win a Taunfawn or M8-3R droid code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.

3. Holofeed

  • There was server-only maintenance on Tuesday, with no announced change to the game.
  • As predicted by Andrew in last week’s show, BioWare are under-promising and hoping to over-deliver: there is the possibility that the boss-turning issue in some Operations and Flashpoints will be fixed in Game Update 4.2 (early March), rather than the previously announced Game Update 4.3 (early April).
  • If you haven’t received your Valentine’s gift from BioWare (code for 1050 CC and a friend referral code to trial Chapter 1 with an insta-60), check your email again, especially your spam folder!
  • While the Producer Livestreams with Ben Irving and Eric Musco will continue, the story livestreams will not; instead, there will be story vlogs posted to YouTube.
  • Team Negative1 has restored the original theatrical release from 1977 of Star Wars (not yet identified as episode 4 or named “A New Hope”).
  • Apeiron is a reboot of KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic), being built from the ground up using the Unreal Engine 3.

4. Community

All the details about the remaining Ootini Event that Djredd has organised for February can be found in his forum post.
