Hi everyone,

PTS for 7.1 is here! In this phase, you will have the opportunity to test out the R-4 Anomaly Operation in its entirety alongside the Manaan Daily area.

There’s a lot of info we want to share with you all with not only 7.1 PTS, but for game update 7.1 in general, so please be sure to read through the following posts carefully before diving into PTS.

Now let’s move onto the new stuff! A never before seen boss has been added to the Operation. Lady Dominique joins IP-CPT, Watchdog, and Lord Kannoth as the next and final boss for the R-4 Operation. As noted in the PTS blog, Lady Dominique will be available only in Story Mode. Veteran mode will be available in the next build.

In this phase of PTS, there are a couple of special notes players should know:
  • Augments will work in level shifted content
  • Stat scaling in level shift: Alacrity, Accuracy, and Shield Chance are no longer being scaled down when you're shifted down (this does not apply in PvP)

To access the Operation, follow the steps below:
  • Copy your level 80 character over to the Public Test Server.
  • Head to Mek-Sha's Slugfall Harbor area.
  • The northernmost ship dock will have a PTS Gear Vendor to get you equipped for the Operation. The entrance to which will be located at the end of the same pier.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE DAILY AREA. Players must copy a character that has completed the 7.0 story to play the Manaan Daily Area. This is a known issue and will be fixed in the next build.
To access the Manaan Daily Area, follow the steps below:
  • Via the Galaxy Map, travel to the Manaan Invasion Zone
  • Near the base where you land, you should see a mission board next to the taxi stand. This will have all the available missions for you to try out

Here is a list of feedback threads that you can use to provide your thoughts on the bosses and the Manaan Daily Area.

As always, please read through the Known Issues/Changelog post before going on the PTS to try out the new content.

Is this only a "known issue" for PTS? Or will this be a requirement on Live as well once 7.1 comes out?

I'd imagine its going to be for a bigger pool of players than just those who have completed 7.0 or it'll be quieter than Iokath on a Summers day.

We are currently in the operation instance but the elevator to get to the first boss is missing, I'm assuming it is bugged. Also, we did not have to download any new patch in the launcher, aka we are still using the patch from March 29.

Hi all,

For those who did not receive a patch to download, can you please confirm if you are using the web launcher or Steam?

Thanks!
