Warzone ARENAS huh? Hmmm....very interesting! I hope that ends up being what I want it to mean. I'd love an arena where the primary objective, was PvP focused.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

On July 23rd look for a return of the Relics of the Gree Event for a nice two week long run:

Bounty Contract Week is a monthly event, so if you miss it the first time, don’t worry – it will return next month!


New Event Awesome! My only questions is: Will the Gree event still be recurring? Or will it be replaced by the Bounty Hunter event? (Need time to get my Blue Sphere mount!)

I was rather hoping for a touch-up like finally fixing the grass textures and some other ugly tiling stuff (nagnagnag!), improving AA, that kind of thing.

Would be nice to have a developer/artist blog teaser on that sometime soonish, like the one about the foliage shader improvements, with a few before/after shots

I would recommend checking the images from the flash drive about the bounty hunter event. It is probably safe to assume that at least some of the changes are somewhere in there.

Darth Vitus's compound


Oricon was a moon in the Outer Rim Territories.

History

An insignificant world, it was once home to Darth Vitus, before its location was lost to the wider galaxy. Vitus experimented with Sith alchemy on the world, creating monsters strong with the dark side. During the age of the Great Sith War, a group of Sith tracked the world down from clues in a holocron, eventually leading them to Darth Vitus's compound.



This could be very very interesting...

Quote:
Darth Vitus was a male individual who became a Sith at some point before the time of the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War. After gaining significant knowledge of how to utilize Sith alchemy, he desired to develop his understanding of the subject further, so he carried out research at a compound on the moon Oricon in the Outer Rim Territories. During the course of his investigations, Vitus experimented on monsters that were strong in the dark side of the Force.
Behind the scenes

Darth Vitus was created by Matthew Grau and featured in "Behind the Threat: The Sith Antiheroes", an article that was published on Wizards.com in 2008.
