It's still nice, I hated how the boosted tokens auto completed all story and made you miss out on a lot of things!

I absolutely agree. Love the fact that this is meant to be used on existing characters. For all the expansions that I'm tired of playing through, it will be nice to jump a couple from the end of class story to end game.

Instead if trickling my companions back, can you just give me a token to reset anyone who hasn't completed KOTET back the end of SOR? That was the last good story and by doing that I can ignore all of the garbage since.

Thanks for the honesty but you make me worried for the little content we are getting and can you keep the schedule you mentioned going into 2018 with the one FP and remaining 2 OPS bosses that you couldn't complete in all of 2017. Which technically are already delayed from what you originally said about the OPS.

Quick update on Game Update 5.6. As we are getting closer to the launch of Update, we feel we need just a little bit more time to really bring the new Yavin Warzone up to quality. We are going to pull it out of Game Update 5.6 (launching 11/28), instead it will now launch as a part of 5.6.1 only two weeks later on 12/12. We apologize for the delay in the Warzone, we know that there is a lot of excitement for it and we are eager to get it to you as quick as we can.

This date change does not impact any other elements of the Game Update. As a reminder, here are some of the bigger things coming in two weeks with 5.6 (this is not a comprehensive list):
  • New Flashpoint on Copero, a planet in the Chiss Ascendency (Solo Story, Group Story, Veteran, and Master Modes) and the continuation of the Alliance traitor storyline.
  • The return of Raina Temple.
  • Nahut, the third boss in the Gods From the Machine Operation (Story and Veteran modes).
  • New GSF Deathmatch map set in the orbit over Iokath.
  • Significant changes to Group Finder (new UI, all queuing in one place, upgraded rewards, solo activities added).
  • Legacy-wide Credits and Unassembled Components.
  • Changes to Galactic Command disintegration (gear now disintegrates directly into Unassembled Components to help mitigate RNG).
  • New item, the Master’s Datacron. This allows you to take any existing character and boost them to level 70; this boost does not progress story.
  • And more!

Thanks everyone.

would like to hear more about the Datacron, but expect it to be about the same cost as other tokens and could possibly replace them. would love to take the two free ones i have and be able to convert them into this one, but dont see that happening.

ya cant just plop something like that on the table and not say more! we are less than two weeks away!

However, that still means no class buff either.

You'll still have to level the old fashion way if you want that it seems.

To be fair, they did mention this previously - again, without any detail...

"Plus, the update will include a multitude of additional features. My favorites include an enhanced Group Finder that makes grouping up quick and easy, Legacy bank improvements, a means of boosting a character to Level 70, and some cool United Forces rewards. We are also hard at work on features planned for early 2018, including overhauling the Conquest system with a stronger focus on Daily Activities and giving all guilds and players access to some great rewards."
