Adjectives

It is just a difference of wording. It is simply the Sky Palace, we just threw some fancy words in front of it.

So does this mean if we are subscribers by both dates we get two palaces one with 5 rooms and one with 3 rooms or one palace with 8 rooms?

One question though. 2.8 was called the "biggest update to date" is this still the case with this no longer being part of that patch? I would expect that it no longer is but just curious.
Great question! 2.8 will no longer be the "biggest update to date" as we will be shifting Galactic Strongholds out of it. 2.8 will still be great though, we will have more details about it, and the rest of our plan in Bruce's updated Roadmap. We will have that to you guys in the next few weeks!

Erik could you tell us what can we expect in 2.8 then? I know Manaan is coming at one point so I'm asking :P

I'm good with that, new features are amazing! I'm especially excited with Tatooine Homestead

But I hope those Strongholds are for the whole Legacy, not specific characters. I play too many alts to take care of too many houses...

Thank you very much for the transparency

Looking forward to this update looks like some very cool things in there like the conquest events

I for one don't mind waiting for a polished product.

Well, yeah, all missions that don't directly involve warzones are "PvE" missions. But I mean, will they be some type of instanced PvE, or will they be held in such a way that the opposing faction might have a chance to "stop" your guild conquering the planet? Like, a mission that happens on the planet itself, and is involved and long enough that the opposing faction could mount some sort of resistance?

Or will it have absolutely no cross-faction impact whatsoever (a pub guild and imp guild could both "control" the planet simultaneously)

Still looks cool, I'm just curious about this part - because it hints at a backdoor to world pvp. And I like that.

See you in the warzones, muppets.

Awesome. Thanks for not trying to twist your answer so you didn't have to actually say that it wouldn't be the biggest.

What this means is that if you are a subscriber on both dates, you will have one Palace with 5 rooms unlocked. It isn't a "stacking" type of thing. June is a basically a smaller version of the May promotion.

Never mind answered above me .

Well it all sounds great and by the sounds of it , might actually make me join a guild , heaven forbid and I never thought I would. I'm still going to be my own person but I'm great at helping people. My main 2 friends will have priority though and I will ask them if they are willing to join up with me.

Sounds great cheeky monkey lizards , keep it up.

Cheers,

BadOrb.
