Hey everyone!

We've updated the PTS and it is once again open for testing. Here is a list of the Uprising fixes we've implemented:
  • All: Full Level 75 rebalance of all Uprisings. This includes enemies and bosses.
  • Destroyer of Worlds: Reduced the amount of Trash by about 50%
  • Destroyer of Worlds: Adjusted range of Skurr & Velloc attacks so they now only hit players within their AoE indicators.
  • Done and Dusted: Enslaved Sand Bats now have a reasonable amount of HP
  • Firefrost: Environmental snowfall in the final boss now actually can damage the player.
  • Fractured: Final boss no longer resets randomly after defeating Lord Anril.
  • Fractured: Enemies no longer can go through a specific gate while it's closed.
  • Inferno: Kolto stations now work.
  • Landing Party: Commander Tassar can no longer cast Void Space right after Force Slam.
  • Trench Warfare: Walkers can no longer damage players with missiles while they're on turrets.
  • Trial and Error: Marlon Fenn has a new leap attack that does AoE damage in a radius around him when he lands. Can execute this ability 1-3 times in a row.
  • Trial and Error: Electric Wire Traps no longer Stun the player on anything but Master Mode
  • Trial and Error: It's no longer possible to get stuck on chairs in the final boss's room.
  • Trial and Error: Giant roving laser traps now move slower
  • Trial and Error: AoEs for Alirra Semhess are now more visible and distinct.

They even sent me a video of them doing it to demonstrate. If any developer would like it, message me too.

Conquest gained from crafting needs to be Capped per legacy. No more than Half whatever the large yield conquest goal is. It truly is ridiculous the numbers you can output with it in concert with others, something a normal human would struggle to replicate. I'm an officer in one of the largest conquest guilds on impside, and we just barely beat a guild that literally had 15 members on throughout the entire night we were running conquest in one last push. Bogus.
If you have not already, please send reports through the proper channels. I encourage you to go here and follow the steps under the platform SWTOR. https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/faq/r...nd-harassment/

I also ask that you refrain from posting a step by step or breakdown of any type of system abuse in the forums and that you instead include that language in your report and let our team review and process.

Grade 7 Space Missions TOO HARD! | 01.21.2021, 12:42 PM

Hey Deadbladey,
The Grade 7 Missions are intended to be challenging especially for players who have mastered everything in the Grade 5 Mission. You are meant to have almost max level ship gear and have knowledge of when to strategically use your abilities. However, there is little to no RNG, so that will help with planning your route and trying new techniques tp complete the mission. While Grade 7 is the most challenging piece of content for this mode of the game, it is definitely doable with the right gear and strategies.

EDIT: I'll also be moving this discussion to the appropriate sub-forum.

You can target him bit can't "see" him so attacks (even DoE) won't work. Once my healing companion got stuck in there and didn't heal.

So does anyone have a solution because I certainly don't. Bioware, any intentions on fixing this?
Can you tell me the exact quest name and the droid NPCs' names? That would help us look into this further.

Minor Rampage Achievement Boost does not double all kill counts | 01.15.2021, 01:24 PM
Hello everyone,

Here is a bit more clarification on the Minor Rampage Achievement Boost. https://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=988571

Upcoming Guild Conquest Updates | 01.15.2021, 01:03 PM

Hi everyone,

We wanted to let you all know of some updates we are making to Conquest as it pertains to Guilds and Guild Contributions. This update will specifically touch two main aspects of Guild Conquests - when a new character joins a Guild, and when any characters are removed from a Guild - and how Conquest Points will be handled.

New Character Grace Period
When a new character has accepted an invite into a Guild, that character will begin a Grace Period with the Guild. During this time, that new character can still earn their own Personal Conquest goals and rewards, but their Conquest efforts will not be calculated into the Guild’s Conquest efforts until the next Conquest event. As such, new characters will not immediately appear in a Guild’s Conquest Leaderboards, and will not be eligible for the Guild’s Invasion Reward.

When new characters view the Guild Invasion screen, they will see a message indicating that they are currently unable to contribute towards their new Guild’s Conquest score, and must wait until the next Conquest event. Similarly, when viewing the Guild Roster page new characters who are unable to contribute will be indicated as such, allowing Guild Leadership to get a better picture of who cannot actively contribute.

It is important to note that this Grace Period is per character, and not account. If a player already has a character in a Guild, and is bringing an alternate character into the Guild, the Grace Period only applies to that alternate character, and not all characters from that Legacy. Equally as important to note is that this Grace Period will also apply to all new Guilds being formed.

Joining a Guild is an important aspect of our game, and we want to ensure that both the Guild and new members are given time to assess each other properly, without the pressures of reward systems potentially interfering in that period.

Character and Guild Separation
When a player is removed from a Guild by the Guild, their Conquest contributions will now be removed from that Guild as well. In the event the character leaves a Guild on their own accord, the points they contributed to a Guild’s Conquest will remain with the Guild for that Conquest.

When removing characters, Guild Leadership will now be provided with a notification informing them that removing the member will result in a loss of that member’s Conquest contributions. Again, it is important to note that this is per character, and not account.

Guild Commendation Reward
As a result of the changes mentioned above, the time frame in which a Guild will earn their Guild Commendation Invasion Reward is being changed. Guild Perk Rewards will now be tallied at the end of a Conquest event rather than during it, and as such the Commendation Reward from Invasions will be given when the subsequent Conquest begins.

We want to ensure that character and Guild separation is done in a healthy and amicable way.

As always, thank you to everyone who has sent in feedback regarding how the current system was being used. We feel these changes will allow players and Guilds to build healthier relationships when experiencing this aspect of SWTOR, and are aiming to have these changes in an update in the near future.

EDIT: Added Guild Commendation Reward section.

Every time a dye is the Flash Sale item it disappears from the Cartel Market | 01.15.2021, 12:59 PM
Hi ceryxp,

This is not working as intended and not specific to dyes. At times, a flash sale item will not be listed immediately after the sale is over as some go through a cooling off period before they are restored to the CM.

Minor Rampage Achievement Boost Clarification | 01.15.2021, 11:17 AM

Hi all!

We have seen some confusion recently regarding the functionality of the Minor Rampage Achievement Boost, so I wanted to take this opportunity to go over its intended functionality.

As you progress your journey through the Galaxy, you will come across various Achievements for defeating a certain number of generic enemies. Let’s take a look at a few of these.
  • Removing the Riff Raff: Defeated 100 Criminal Combatants on Corellia (located under Aliens and Mercenaries in the Corellia Location section of Achievements)
  • Taris Eradication: Defeated 5000 non-player opponents while on Taris as a Republic player (located under General in the Taris Location section of Achievements)
  • T7-01 = Honorary Jedi: Defeated 1000 enemies with T7-01 as your active companion (located under T7-01 in the Jedi Knight Companions section of Achievements)
  • I’m Gunna Get You, Czerka: Defeated 480 non-player opponents while on CZ-198 (located under General in the CZ-198 Dailies section of Achievements)

Using the Minor Rampage Achievement Boost will increase the defeat counts for these Achievements by 2x. This means 1 defeated Criminal Combatant on Corellia will count as 2 as far as the Achievement counter is concerned, allowing you the opportunity to obtain these Achievements at an expedited rate. Keep an eye open for Achievements which similarly require general enemies to be defeated - the Minor Rampage Achievement Boost will increase those counts!

This boost will not however affect counts towards Player defeat Achievements, Boss or Named Enemy defeat Achievements, or Conquest Objectives.

For example, you are on CZ-198 defeating enemies for the ‘CZ-198: Defeat Enemies’ Conquest Objective, and you also have the Minor Achievement Boost active. The counts for the Conquest Objective will remain 1:1 (meaning 1 defeated enemy counts as 1 count toward your Conquest Objective), however counts towards the ‘I’m Gunna Get You, Czerka’ Achievement will be doubled, even if you are defeating the same enemy.

We hope this information helps clarify the functionality of this new boost!

Outfit slots - White and Green quality items no longer able to be dyed. | 01.13.2021, 11:08 AM
Thanks to everyone who asked for updates on this thread!

We took a look and the dye slots on these old outfits are currently working as they should.

To give some context, these outfits were not built to accept dyes, and when the Outfitter was released, there was a bug that allowed dyes to be used on outfits that didn't have a dye slot. Unfortunately, these outfits didn't actually support dyes under-the-hood, and so in many cases, when dyes were used on outfits, the dye would not actually be applied, and the item would be consumed (it did work in some cases, though that was technically accidental).

Because we know dyeing is an important facet of character customization, in recent years we've leaned harder in the direction of making more and more outfits dyeable, but the older armors that were not created to support dyes will still remain so.
