Hey everyone!

We will be taking the servers offline in order to apply Patch 4.3a on Thursday, April 7th.

DATE: April 7th 2016
TIME: 7:00AM - 9:00AM PDT (3:00PM - 5:00PM BST)

Patch Notes will be available after maintenance.

Thank you for your patience as we maintain Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

PTS Update Notes - 4/6/2016 | 04.06.2016, 12:59 PM
  • New Alliance Alert: Freedom Fight! Recruit Bowdaar by showing your prowess in the Eternal Championship.
Eternal Championship
  • Gungus Bogs: The Heralds of Zildrogs' melee attacks no longer have a 70m maximum range, because that was rather silly.
  • Lanos: Fixed a bug whereby Unstable Reprogrammed Skytroopers could retarget a companion if the skytrooper could not leap to its original target for over 60 seconds (due to it being in cover, for example).
  • Lanos: Unstable Reprogrammed Skytroopers who are unable to leap to their target for 30s or more will now use their high-powered Snipe attack every 16s, down from 30s. Don't just ignore them =)
  • Breaktown Brawler: Removed boss immunity from King Crush and Master Ripper. The are now susceptible to any CC which does not break on damage.
  • Nocturno & Drake Raven: Tweaked Drake Raven's encounter mechanics such that when he is subjected to heavy DPS, he will try much harder to deploy at least one G0-ON Abductor squad to kidnap your sidekick.
  • Nocturno & Drake Raven: The stun component of Firaxian Shark Repellent (when used offensively) is now properly marked as a debuff, because being stunned is bad.
  • Nocturno & Drake Raven: Based upon player feedback, observation, and metrics, we have decided to remove the on-arm stealth from Stunning Mines (as the mechanic was reading poorly and causing a lot of confusion). Mines thrown by Drake Raven will remain visible after arming, allowing players to utilize them better.
  • Nocturno & Drake Raven: Corrected the tooltip text of the "Eyes on the Prize" buff to correctly refer to both Nocturno and Drake Raven.
  • Nocturno & Drake Raven: Drake Raven's Stunning Mine abilities now properly show a name in the cast bar.
  • Zotar: Immovable Object now makes Zotar temporarily immune to interrupts, as interrupting Zotar while he was channeling Shocking Finale could break the encounter.
  • Little Gut: Adjusted the floor trap region boundaries to more closely match the VFX boundaries.

The team is still working through what exactly is causing the issue. We are getting closer to having a fix though! Tait will post any future updates in the bug report forums.

Normally, our Producer streams are on Thursdays. However, Ben is traveling later this week and so we had to move it up.


Legendary Status bug AGAIN?! | 04.05.2016, 04:02 PM
Hey folks,

We have discovered what is causing the problem. There is a trigger that happens behind the scenes which grants Legendary Status. Some characters are missing this indicator, which is preventing you from having Legendary Status. We are working on addressing the issue, but unfortunately we can't resolve it until 4.4. In the meantime, you do not need to submit a ticket to CS as they will be unable to correct this issue. For those that qualify, your status will be corrected once the fix is in place.

Thank you for your patience.

Hey folks,

Similar to last time, if you are missing Legendary Status for any characters which should be counting, please log into that character. Separately, we are investigating if there is an underlying issue present with Legendary Status. I will pass on any updates as I have them.

This a bug we are aware of. The saber is missing its ignition sound, which is intended to go with the "bleep bloop" noises. This will be fixed!

Eternal Championship Encounter Feedback | 03.31.2016, 03:21 PM
Hey folks,

Please use this thread to leave feedback on the Eternal Championship. Feel free to leave any feedback you want, but here are some questions to get you started"
  • Did you feel the encounter difficulty scaled at a fun and fair pace?
  • Are there any specific encounters that you felt were difficult solely because of your Class or Role?
  • Were there any encounters/mechanics which you particularly enjoyed, or were frustrated by?
When posting feedback please be very specific about your Class, Role, gear level, and which encounter you are referring too, where applicable.


How to Access The Eternal Championship | 03.31.2016, 03:12 PM
In order to access the Eternal Championship, you must use a character which has completed Chapter 9 and has access to Alliance Alerts. Then do the following:
  1. Use your Class Ship to travel to Zakuul, exit the ship onto the planet.
  2. Head directly to the Cantina.
    • (due to the current known issue of the map missing, here are some detailed steps to get to the Cantina)
    • Head straight ahead, and use the elevator.
    • Go straight til you come to an intersection and go right.
    • Follow that path to the elevator on the right.
    • After using the elevator head down the ramp and to the right, to enter the Cantina.
  3. When entering the Cantina, speak to the NPC named Dominaire about joining the Arena Grand.
  4. Once completed, walk past him to the Arena Grand Events Terminal to pick up any available Solo, Solo+, and Weekly Missions.
  5. With those Missions in your log, either head to the right and use the Elevator to Level 1, or click the Quick Travel icon in your Mission Tracker.
  6. Enter the Arena Grand!

PTS Known Issues | 03.31.2016, 03:05 PM
Known Issues
  • Some area maps are not displaying properly. This includes both Zakuul and the Fleet.

Subscribers check your cartel coin ledgers, BioWare may be ripping you off. | 03.28.2016, 12:47 PM
Hey folks,

I want to address up a couple of questions I am seeing in the thread.

Will we be compensated for the Cartel Coins we missed receiving?
No one should have missed receiving any coins due to this issue. When you have 30 days of subscription time, you will receive your monthly Cartel Coin grant during that 30 day window. That is still true. Due to this issue you may receive it on a later day then you did previously, but you will still receive it within your current subscription window.

I checked my ledger and I am missing XXX coins, what do I do?
Understand that this issue has only been going on since August of last year. The accumulation of 3 day delays has not occurred enough at this time to cause any issues in granting Coins. You should have received all Cartel Coin grants as intended (although perhaps a few days later than usual). If you feel you are missing any of your Cartel Coin grants please contact CS.

It was really important to us that we got this addressed before anyone was impacted, especially if that impact meant losing Cartel Coins. Again, no one will have lost any Cartel Coins, it is possible only that your grant will later into your 30-day subscription window. Thanks everyone!
