SWTOR Game Update 6.1.1 now on PTS!

Want to try out the upcomming SWTOR Patch? Now is your chance!

Game Update 6.1.1 is now live on the Public Test Server (PTS) for all subscribers. Whether you have a max level character or not, we encourage you to check out the PTS and give us your feedback on this new Lair Boss. To get additional information on the PTS status, timing, and to give your feedback, head to the PTS Forums.

In the upcoming Game Update 6.1.1 we’re introducing several quality of life changes and improvements for players with Conquest and Class changes. Alongside these changes, we’re introducing the Master Mode difficulty for The Nature of Progress Operation as well as new Set Bonuses!

Master Mode and New Set Bonuses

Currently the first, second, and fifth bosses are available for Master Mode testing, with the others to be added in with future PTS phases. Along with the Master Mode difficulty, new Set Bonuses that will have an increased chance to drop from the Operation. All Classes barring Powertechs and Vanguards will be receiving these new Set Bonuses, one per Class. Powertechs and Vanguards actually got their Set Bonuses a few months early in Game Update 6.0.1 with the Emergency Power Armor Set. A full breakdown of the new Set Bonuses can be found here.
