SWTOR Galactic Season 5: A Comprehensive Guide to “Confidence in Power”

Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) is set to launch its Galactic Season 5 with Game Update 7.3.1. This season introduces a plethora of new features, objectives, and rewards, along with a unique storytelling experience. Here’s a deep dive into what players can expect from this exciting new season.

New Storytelling Mechanics

Unlike previous seasons where players would embark on storyline missions with a new companion, Season 5 offers a different approach. Story progression is now a part of the Galactic Seasons rewards. Players will unlock new story missions as they progress through the reward track, culminating in a final mission at Season Level 40.

The season’s story, titled “Confidence in Power,” introduces players to 3V-1L, an astromech droid serving a mysterious Master. The droid will test players through a series of trials to determine their worthiness of the Master’s teachings of the “dark side.”

Updated Objectives

Season 5 brings new objectives involving companions set to specific roles, Space Missions, and Operations. The objectives have been designed to offer more variety and clarity. For example, Flashpoint and Uprising objectives have been updated to make it clearer what requirements need to be satisfied. Subscribers will have more objectives available, increasing from 10 to 11, although the maximum number of objectives allowed to be completed in a week will remain at 7.

When I was 7, I saw Star Wars: A New Hope in theaters a week after it opened. My parents were nice enough to take me and I have been a fan of Star Wars and almost all science fiction in general. I am an amateur writer who has been published for contributing flavor text to a RP game. I also have a copyright on a novel I hope to be able to publish sometime soon.
