Hey folks,

Here we are again, round 2 of final changes . In all seriousness, thank you all for your continued feedback! You should expect that the next PTS build will go live either tomorrow or Saturday.

General
  • All items that require a Cartel Market Reputation should now properly check that requirement against the players Underworld Exchange Reputation (for real this time).

Arena
  • Players can no longer use traversal abilities, such as Force Leap, to approach characters who are flying through the air due to using a jump pad.

Rishi Stronghold
  • Decorations should now properly block line of sight.
  • The secret cave has been transformed into a room that can be unlocked. This new room unlock leads to a 3 bedroom apartment.
  • A new “options” button has been added to the Stronghold UI.
  • A toggle has been added to turn off PvP in the Rishi Stronghold. This can be found under the options menu in your Stronghold UI.
  • When using the spectator droid, you can no longer use the nearby speeder.
  • Players using the spectator droid will no longer be impacted by AoE abilities.
  • The Bolster terminal will now glow blue to show that it is interactable.
  • Only Stronghold visitors who have keys can interact with terminals in the Rishi Stronghold.
  • Addressed some hooks being unusable.
  • Added additional hooks around the Stronghold
  • The new wall/cover decorations now work on a wider variety of hook types.
The one item from our "wish list" which you will notice is still missing is the ability to sort Strongholds. This is something the team still has interest in doing. There is a small chance we can get it in still for 5.9.2, but it is more likely to be in 5.9.3.

This sorting will work alphabetically, by default. However, once you start traveling to your Strongholds, the list will then work similar to character select and will sort in order of most recently visited.

Once PTS is up I will create a new feedback thread for PvP in the Stronghold (LoS and toggle) and one for the new "apartment" area. Thanks everyone, we'll see you on PTS.

Nice Eric good job, I think with opening PTS you opened up another can of absolute idiots who expect PTS to be the final product. Glad you proved them wrong and nice to see you spit those idiots in the face.

Keep up the good works!

Thank you. Can you give a total cost for this for a guild. Thank you.

If everything is working smoothly will the delay still be necessary?

Thank you for the patch notes Eric! I'm looking forward to checking out all the improvements. I love that you made the wall hooks more versatile. The team has really gone above and beyond with this and it's appreciated!

AWESOME! This is fantastic news. I look forward to exploring after the update.

Did some of the other bugs get fixed too, like the jungle noises that persisted in a portion of one of the ship rooms, or is that a comprehensive list?

If the jungle noises stay in that room, you know I'm going to put a lot of potted plants and flying pets there.

you're joking right? These updates have yet to go live on the PTS for us to test. We won't know how smoothly everything is working until then. So yes the delay is still necessary.

Do you think we can get spawn options in Tat and Yavin, down the line?

Im just hoping for more items to get tuning slots that are missing them.
