Hey everyone!

We will be taking the servers offline on Thursday, August 31st in order to apply Game Update 5.4a. Note that we are still actively testing this patch to ensure the fixes are working properly. We will let you know if maintenance timing changes.

Details:
DATE: 31 August 2017
TIME: 6:00AM - 8:00AM PDT (1300 - 1500 GMT)
VERSION: 5.4a

Patch Notes will be available here on Thursday. The currently planned fixes are:
  • Iokath Daily Missions going back to their correct CXP rewards. (link)
  • Fixing the Umbara Stronghold Exploit. (link)
  • Ensuring players can get back to the last boss in Crisis on Umbara, even if they die to the adds.
  • Gladiopod Workers and Soldiers counting properly towards the Crisis on Umbara Achievements.
  • The defensive turrets on the train will no longer block progression if they are aggroed.

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

Heading it off at the pass, we will post what is changing before the end of the day. Working on finalizing a few things and then I will get the changes edited into the post above. Formal patch notes will go live tomorrow.

Thanks everyone.

Thanks so much for the heads-up (and for your hard work in testing the patch). Here's hoping everything goes well!

LOL - Most likely. FUN was detected by the Balance Guy in the backroom. Time to grind now before removed.

@ERIC - thanks for the heads up!
Appreciate the communications in advance. (Understanding that User unexpected benefit Bugs/Exploits you can't list)

Does this mean that conquest is about to be reset again mid-week?

As much as I hope not, it is most likely.

This bug actually gave me a reason to do dailies again. It also is a relief on the gear grind. But then again, I don't do much of the big stuff, so the extent of the grind is more my fault.

Yeah, I also saw some people grouping for daylies again and seeing usually abandoned planets have activity. O welp!

Oh, man I hope they don't bring those back down ~80 again.

I just had the bug where I lost all my light side points so I can't use my cool new sounding lightsaber anymore. If they nerf the new daily amount I think I may just stop playing altogether.
