3. Holofeed

  • After Game Update 5.1 is deployed on 24 January, the lass boss of an operation is guaranteed to drop an unassembled gear piece for a specific slot, with the bosses leading up to the last boss having an increasing chance of dropping an unassembled gear piece for a random slot.
  • The discipline your character has determines what type (tank, DPS or healer) of gear you will receive.
  • The top 96 players of the various Advanced Classes will be finalised by Game Update 5.1 as BioWare eliminates those players from the running who were cheating.
  • Last Tuesday 20 December was SWTOR’s 5 year anniversary.
  • Dulfy has an excellent guide to the 5th anniversary and Life Day events.
