Correct, 5.10 is still just 5.10. There will be no additional patch to download before we come back online.

All characters will be rolled back to when the server came online. You will need to start the Mission again and in your example, yes you would need to purchase from the vendor.

The simplest way to think of it is that when we bring the servers back online, it will be identical to when we brought the servers online this morning.

Servers Back Offline - 5.10 | 12.11.2018, 11:03 AM
Alright folks here is the current status of things. First, we believe we have a way to fix the Ossus starter Mission overwriting choices without a patch. This is good because it means we can prepare it fairly quickly. We are working on getting that fix in place and tested now.

Second, for players who were impacted because of starting Ossus, we believe we can also fix that before we come back online. Our plan is to basically set each characters status to what it was before the servers came back online this morning. Basically a 30 minute rollback on your progress.

Right now tentative ETA looks like 2-3 hours. As the team is going through each process I listed above I will give you status updates on how things are going.

Yup, you're fine here. The patch files themselves are not the issue, it is an in-game problem. Patching up is safe!

Right now we are trying to work out a few things:
  • How to resolve the issue to prevent it from happening when we bring everything back online.
  • We figure out a way to correct players who had choices overwritten.
  • What we can do to get the game back up again ASAP.

Hey folks,

We are going to be bringing all servers back offline. We quickly discovered an issue that was potentially impacting players previous story choices. We are going to keep the servers offline until we can understand what is happening to players and how we can resolve it. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. Look to this thread for updates.

Good catch! I will clarify the note, it STARTS dropping in Tier 3. So they drop in Tier 3 and 4.

Someone should proofread this, at least now after releasing it. :-)

Appreciate the heads up, I'll pass it onto the team to get corrected.

Hey folks!

For those who are interested in a bit more info on the current affairs of the galaxy as we head into Update 5.10: Jedi Under Siege, Lana Beniko has prepared an intelligence summary on that very subject! Click here to read the full article.

Thank you all for your patience while we put this together. If you have any future story article requests, feel free to share them! I know that an updated timeline of events over the last few expansions is much requested, for instance

See you all on Ossus very soon!

Launcher Patch - November, 27 2018 | 11.26.2018, 01:31 PM
Hey folks,

Just a heads up that tomorrow morning (Central time) players will receive a update to their SWTOR launcher. This in a back-end change and will have no impact on gameplay, if you are already logged into the game it will simply apply the next time you launch the game.

Thanks everyone.

Masterwork Gear Changes in 5.10 | 11.21.2018, 04:33 PM

That said, any thoughts on how crafting 258 works on PTS with the Forgotten materials or how to acquire alternative item modifications such as the 258 versions of Warding Mod B or Lethal Mod B?
I will verify but I am pretty sure that alternate mods at 258 (such as what you described) are crafted with the schematics learned from reverse engineering.

*snip*
258 weapons will not be available with Game Update 5.10. They will be available early next year to coincide with a new piece of group content.

Current respawn time is 15 minutes. The team will monitor to see if it needs to go lower as they are very sensitive to the possibility of multiple groups trying to kill them for the Weekly.

The rotating Mission will contain one of 4 objectives:
  • Story Mode Ops
  • Master Mode Flashpoints
  • Galactic Starfighter
  • Ranked PvP (the team is exploring changing this to unranked instead)

Will there be with 5.10 also the Ossus reputation token included in the commando crates?

Would be interesting to know, now this rank matters for the vendor to get the MW gear.
Currently Ossus Rep tokens will not drop in Command Crates. However, there are a large number of sources both on and off Ossus to earn that Reputation.

You can spin this however you want, but lets be clear -- 258 gear is now harder to obtain unless you are SIGNIFICANTLY increasing the drops of MWS in T3 and T4 crates.

Dasty
Totally hear you on this, so let me try to provide a specific example of how it worked on PTS, vs how it will work now. For this example let's say your goal is to acquire a 258 chest piece.

PTS
The purchase from a vendor costs 5 Masterwork Data Crystals
  • You could not purchase the 252 chest at all, and it was not required for the 258 purchase - Total cost of 5
Now
The purchase from a vendor costs 4 Masterwork Data Crystals and the 252 chest.
  • If you purchased the 252 chest from the vendor for 2 MW Data Crystals - Total cost of 6
  • If you have the 252 chest from a Command Crate or Ossus Weekly Mission - Total cost of 4
You are correct that from PTS if you only use MW Data Crystals to acquire gear it will cost 1 more Crystal per piece of gear. However, for any 258 that you purchase using a 252 piece acquired from a Command Crate or the Ossus Weekly it is actually 1 Crystal cheaper.
