part about global cooldown - does this mean global cooldown only when you use stim, or global cooldown in general? like always?



also in Sith Warrior set "The Undying"

"(4) After executing Mad Dash, you can 20% damage reduction for 6 seconds."

I believe there is a typo
Just GCD / CD on stims.

I will get that typo corrected.

Hey folks,

Some quick status for you. I know you are all eager for the Onslaught patch notes and they are coming today but I wouldn't expect them until later this afternoon. They are huge so publishing them takes a while .

Also just to clear up any confusion, trailer will go live tomorrow alongside launch (the tease of it was released on the Star Wars twitter account).

Thanks all.

In Preparation for 6.0 - what are the TOP things to do | 10.18.2019, 12:15 PM
Hey all,

Alliance Crates are unchanged in Onslaught. You will still get them from Heroics and can turned them in as you did previously.

State of the Galaxy Article Before Onslaught? | 10.18.2019, 09:52 AM
Hey folks!

Apologies! This was on my plate and I just didn't have time to put one together. I think the most pertinent update since Jedi Under Siege would be that Darth Savik has taken over Darth Malora's role as head of Imperial Scientific Advancement in the aftermath of the events on Ossus. Both Republic and Imperial players will get to know her better in Onslaught.

Everything else you need to know should be pretty well covered in the Onslaught storyline itself. TBH, with all of the branching we're introducing in this story, I have no idea how we'll cleanly present a State of the Galaxy article later on, but that's a good question... for another time

Does your statement only apply to the guild's total score or also the individual member's contributions? AKA do we have to contribute 15k or 50k per character to be eligible for the guild's conquest reward?
My understanding is that you become eligible for the Guild Reward when you complete your personal reward, meaning that would track against you completing your 15K number.

There has been no official forum-based answer to this and I know I'm not the only one looking for confirmation on this.
I missed those above, good catch. Masterwork and Monumental Crystals will both be going away / converted to credits. The intention is that those vendors on Ossus will change to selling their items for credits. There is a known issue at launch where they are still requiring the currency which we will fix in our next patch.

Hey all!

Some good reminders in here already so I thought I would tack on a few reminders as well. Most of these are known already but good to get them in one place ahead of Onslaught's launch next week.
  • Galactic Command Rank is resetting to 0 for all characters.
  • The Achievements for earning Command Rank 300 on Classes will become Feats of Strength with Onslaught's launch.
  • Numerous currencies are being converted to credits at a low rate. Command Point Consumables, Alliance Recon Data, Command Tokens, Command Gear Pieces, and Unassembled Components.
  • All utilities will be reset on launch day so be sure to spend your points when you login.
  • All set bonuses are now on item shells instead of armorings, this change is retroactive.
  • Conquest Guild Targets for this week's Conquest will be judged against the NEW values, not the existing ones. You will also receive NEW Guild rewards for completing them. This has no effect on Personal Conquests.
  • No reason to stockpile Command Crates either as they will not convert into Renown crates and Command Tokens will become credits.
  • All Legacy Perks for GC will now affect Renown. The Commanding Legacy Perk has been adjusted, it no longer stacks but is a 25% increase for Renown gain across the Legacy.

Thanks all!

Welcome to Phase 3 PTS | 10.11.2019, 10:10 AM
Hey all,

Ok here is a recap of some of the changes coming to crafting for 6.0 (beyond what you have seen on PTS).
  • Dramatically reduced the credit cost of the supplemental crafting materials on vendors.
  • Crew Skill Mission times reduced by approximately 30%.
  • Crafting times for combining materials has been reduced by approximately 30%.
  • Materials required to craft Premium quality items has been reduced. Specifically, it no longer requires the Conquest crafting material and lowered the overall mat requirements.
  • Reduced the overall crafting material requirements for crafted Set Bonuses and Tactical items.

One other note as well since I know there has been concern around material costs. Although the costs are higher players should be seeing a much higher in-flow of materials as well. If you are only doing Crew Skill Missions and nothing else it may feel slower though. However you will receive supplementary materials from playing content (such as boss kills) as well as via Jawa Scrap which you will receive from all deconstruction. For players who are actively harvesting materials we actually expect that you will be able to craft even faster than you could previously (due to a large in-flow of materials). As always, please keep any and all feedback coming. If what I stated above is not what you have been seeing then more changes may be necessary.

Thanks all.

Welcome to Phase 3 PTS | 10.10.2019, 11:39 AM
Hey folks!

As a heads up the plan to be specific is to bring PTS fully offline at 4PM Central tomorrow.

To address some of the other questions I am seeing. Yes, absolutely please keep feedback coming as the team is still reviewing it. I am working on getting details on crafting changes for you as well.

Welcome to Phase 3 PTS | 10.09.2019, 08:16 AM
Hey folks,

I alluded to this in my earlier post (Phase 3 coming down the end of the this week) but I wanted to post a reminder. PTS Phase 3 will be coming down for good this Friday afternoon! Make sure to get in your PTS Achievements by then if you want the Kai Zaikken log.

The current patch that is on PTS will be the final one. We would love to put up more patches and show you the changes that have already been made, along with gathering more feedback. At this point though the team needs to focus their efforts on the final build for the 22nd. Definitely keep all feedback coming it is still being passed onto the team and rolled into launch.

Thanks everyone.

Hey all,

We are going to bring PTS down briefly this AM to deploy a new patch. That patch is going to be putting crafting materials on the boost terminals to allow for easy crafting of high-end augments.

Thanks all.
