Companions Cannot Wear Gree Armor | 03.05.2013, 11:08 AM
Hi there,

I wanted to stop in and give you an update about this issue. We have a fix implemented to be deployed with the next patch (1.7.2) that will allow your companions to wear gear earned via Galactic Reputation.

As with any fix, testing could provide us with information that requires a delay, so please know that time frames are always intended but never promised. Thanks for your patience on this!

As for the last part, this would be fantastic if we could get any news. It's been since June 2012 since Rankeds went Live...and well...I think peeps are tired of seeing "Pre-Season". Even if Season 1 doesn't come around soon, it would be awesome if they could just put in the ladder system into Pre-season. I'm not sure if those who working on Rankeds are even still with the current Development it has some of us worried. Any help would be great.

Thanks again for your time.
Hey Pistols-GS,

I talked to some of our PvP Devs. Unfortunately, we are still deep in the development process and we don't want to release any details till things are more "final." As soon as we have any updates, we will be sure to post them. Sorry I couldn't give you any concrete details, but keep checking back!

What happend to Cartel Coins in retail stores? | 03.04.2013, 05:26 PM
Hey everyone, wanted to pop in and clarify any confusion on this!

What we released previously is that Cartel Coins would be available for purchase across 6 countries in Europe. I believe that is the announcement everyone recalls seeing before.

However, if you are in North America, fear not! I spoke with our Marketing team and Cartel Coins should be available for purchase now'ish in both GameStop and BestBuy. From what they told me they will be rolling out to stores over the next couple of weeks. I would ask your local retailer for more information as they may not be available in all stores.

Hope that clears it up!

One question many of us who do Rankeds, is what are the teams plans in regards to Season 1 starting. It was said, and forgive me as I can't locate the source atm, that when Season 1 hit there would be a ladder system in place where teams would face-off against teams with similar Rating scores. If I may, I really hope that gets put in ASAP, I think you guys would see an up-tick of participation of players/teams knew they would face teams near their own rating level. <---While that doesn't mean it'll be perfect, it would help get more teams/guilds involved, and kick-start this aspect back into action. Currently, the Rankeds scene is becoming dried up due to teams who "own" the system.

That being said, I (and some others) would really love to hear any plans/thoughts/ideas from the development team regarding Rankeds in general, and perhaps Season 1's debut. Thank you for replying, sorry for the long post. Ack.
I prefer to play non-ranked since I am not a part of a competitive PvP guild or group. We do play on live servers, but we aren't allowed to say our character names and we play "incognito."

At the moment, I don't have any answers for your Ranked Warzone questions, but I will message some developers and see if I can find you some.

Just curious.
All three of us actually. In fact, last night Musco and I were playing warzones the whole evening.

Is it worth it to hunt all the Datacrons at 50? | 03.04.2013, 03:30 PM

I think this sums it up nicely! No reason to not go back and grab them. Extra stats are always nice and if you are the explorer type, I cannot express how much fun these are to get.

When I got them on my Juggernaut I dedicated a day to getting them in duo with a friend playing a Sorcerer. The mix of platforming, Intercede, and Extrication is roughly the most entertaining thing ever.

Not at all! That thread is still alive and able to be posted in. I was just merely pointing out that we use the entire Cartel Market forum for suggestions so everyone should feel free to use that as well.

IIRC the Cartel Market forum didn't exist when that post was made, so it was good to have a place to consolidate the info. Now we have a whole forum for it.

Hey LtGeneralGezlin,

At this time there is no plan to increase the number of companions you can send out on skill missions/crafting.

Is SWTOR making an appearance at Pax East 2013? | 03.04.2013, 01:34 PM
Hey Everyone,

I promised you an update last week on our future events. We just posted our next set of locations for the Community Cantina Tour here! Head over and take a look!

Is it just me or.... | 03.04.2013, 01:17 PM
This thread seems like a good place to remind you guys that if you have a specific armor set in mind, which you don't currently see in the game but that you want, you can always use the Cartel Market Suggestions forum!

I know that team is always actively looking for new armor/armor sets to add into the game. Especially if you have an in-game example of an armor set that is on an NPC you wish you could wear yourself.

Keep the suggestions // feedback coming.

SWTOR Question of the Day | 03.04.2013, 11:14 AM
Hi Foks,

It's time for our daily SWTOR question:

Tank, healer, damage dealer? What do you enjoy most and why?

My personal answer:

Healer all the way! The why depends on the situation, though.

In PvE, I love the challenge, and fights where I have to CC, heal, cleanse, move, and really watch my Force usage are my favorites!

However, healing during PvP Warzones is my favorite thing to do in the game. There's nothing better than healing so well that players on the other team abandon all objectives to hunt you down.

We're looking forward to seeing what you say!

Question of the Day | 03.04.2013, 10:28 AM
Thanks for all your responses everyone! Awesome to see how many of you love the Mentor fight as much as I do.

Our next question will be up soon! Keep an eye out!

Prophecy of the Five down? | 03.02.2013, 10:05 PM

Prophecy of the Five down? | 03.02.2013, 09:33 PM
We're currently investigating issues with Prophecy of The Five being unavailable. Please watch this thread for updates and information as soon as we have them. Thanks for your patience!

Fastest way to get legacy level xp? | 03.01.2013, 03:35 PM

I never really looked at the numbers between what it was before I purchased the Legacy XP Bonuses to what it was after. So I am just Curious. If I had to guess I would say that it would come from the Base but it would be cool if it came from after the Legacy XP Bonuses were applied. Just for the reason that it would make those Unlocks a little more worth getting. Especially for a Level 50 Alt.
Hey WarbNull,

Let me satisfy your curiosity! The percentage is a flat rate across the board and is not directly affected by XP Bonuses applied. This includes consumables as well as Legacy Character Perks.
