Return of the Gree

Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree

2/12/2013

Highlights

  • A new Event, Relics of the Gree, has been added to the Western Ice Shelf on Ilum. An ancient Gree starship called "Gray Secant" has transformed the battlefield into a crucible for research, with PvE and PvP missions available for the duration of the Event. Earning Reputation with the Gree Enclave will unlock permission to board Gray Secant itself, which includes access to a new Operation boss - Xenoanalyst II. The "Relics of the Gree" Event will last for two weeks and will return in the future!
  • Galactic Reputation is a new system for advancing your Legacy. You can unlock Reputation ranks by completing missions for various organizations and earning Reputation Trophies, which can be consumed to earn Reputation points. Higher Reputation ranks will unlock rewards such as mini-pets, cosmetic gear, and Legacy Titles.
  • The final Cartel Pack of our initial set of packs (known as Shipment One) has arrived. The Space Pirate Pack features a wider variety of exclusive items than any previous pack!
  • Legacy Titles can now be unlocked in your character sheet. Legacy Titles occupy the slot below your name in your nameplate, and once unlocked, they are available to all characters in your Legacy. Your Legacy surname and Legacy Title surname are independent and can be toggled separately. Character and Cartel Market menus have been updated to reflect this.
