3. Holofeed

  • This week the DvL meter indicates that the light side is gaining (51.6% vs 48.4%).
  • SWTOR’s Twitter account polled its audience to determine which of the potential DvL reward companions players prefer, with Master Ranos beating Darth Hexid by 55% to 45%.
  • Getting the DvL achievement for the Depths of Manaan Flashpoint requires killing the final boss, and it turns out that credit is not granted if the environment, not the player, makes the killing blow.
  • As of Game Update 4.7, there will be three DvL achievements that were intended for Legendary missing from its prerequisites. This will be fixed in Game Update 4.7.1.
  • Chapter 16: The Battle of Odessen now has a press release and a teaser trailer.
  • We now have a news article about the next SWTOR expansion Knights of the Eternal Throne (KOTET), along with the landing page at www.swtor.com/eternal-throne.
  • There are six Star Wars movies released, in production or planned through to 2020. This includes the Han Solo movie coming on 25 May 2018, with Alden Ehrenreich to play Han Solo.
  • According to the original Star Wars movie script, revealed by Peter Mayhew, Obi-Wan Kenobi originally survived his encounter with Darth Vader.
