Despite not completing the proper incantations and rituals, I shall grace you will my patch note granting presence. One thing I do want to point out is that there are two Missions that will be reset if you’re currently on them mentioned: The Republic “[WEEKLY] Tactical Flashpoints” Mission and the Imperial Agent “Hero of the People” Mission. Also, there will be three additional notes added tomorrow post-maintenance.
