SWTOR Rumor: Summon Beacon Reusable


Many SWTOR fans are wondering what might be coming in future editions of the game.  SWTOR Miner loves to datamine for info that might give us clues about future patches and game updates. Along with the speculation, this image shows the game files with one interesting thing noted: “summon_beacon_reusable”.

We’re not really sure what this means but there are a lot of theories and ideas. For example, it could be like the craftable item we had in beta that would let you warp to the locations of other players. How cool would it be instantly teleport to play with members of your party or people on your friend’s list?

It was basically like a consumable quick travel point. It allowed you to summon a beacon that other members could then teleport to at your location. Some say it’s been in the game files since beta and others suspect it might be making a comeback soon.

The game files also show there is the potential for item rewards from rep rather than just titles. Have you ever found anything interesting or unique in the game files? Remember something from beta that you really wish would make a comeback?
