Lucky-77 Swoop Video

Remember we told you about the new Lucky-77 Swoop? If you are a subscriber on on March 18, 2014, you will be gifted this new mount. Now BioWare have posted a new video showing off this exclusive new mount. I prefer the larger engine pods on this speeder (and the GSI Exploiter) to the crafted speeders, and I think the overall style makes for one of the better speeder designs in the game, and, hey, free dummy. Personally I don’t need subscriber appreciation gifts/bribes, but some subs have gone ballistic without BW tucking them in and telling them they love them from time to time so I’m just as glad they don’t waste effort on stuff like this.

New Unique mount from Nightmare Dread Fortress

PVP’ers are not the only once getting a new awesome mount. SnipeAlott from the guild Reckoning  on The Red Eclipse server, got this awesome mount, from Nightmare Dread Fortress on the public test servers last night. The boss that drops it is Brontes, and the mount is named Wings of the Architect. It’s a regular mount that flies like a jetpack without the ability to fly inside certain structures (like a jetpack can). Still amazing looking though. Check it out:

Festive Tauntaun on PTS collections. Not sure if I like this or not.

While I don’t like this item as a “Canon” mount in the Star Wars universe, and I understand roleplayers who would trash this mount. It is for fun, after all this is also a game and games are supposed to be fun. Lately I have put the daily grind on the shelf and started playing the game for fun. Meaning that I can sit for hours dressing my characters in expensive gear, while pointless for stats and all, I am havingagoodtime! The fact that this type of item is released gives the impression that BioWare, while serious about the game and lore, wants to convey the fun aspect of the game as a game. Last christmas I cringed when I saw the Czerks life day mount, until I met a guy called Santa who had dressed his character accordingly. I mean after all it is Star Wars. All the movies…

Two seater mounts confirmed?

This image was in the mail today. Two-seater mounts were in the game during the beta (like the Taxi’s on certain planets). The korrealis series is an example of this (they just put a piece of metal over where the other seat was. Your companion would sit with you, but when they added guys like M1-4X they scrapped the whole idea as they didn’t fit. This is Likely not for your companion though, but having your character sit in the side pod and be “driven around” by the droid.

Dewbacks in Collections next week

It looks like players finally will be able to get their hands on the Dewback mount. From the next patch comming this Tuesday,  these mounts will be obtainable via packs on the cartel market. Eric Musco posted two teasers on the forum last week: Slow and steady wins the race! I heard a rumor that a Dewback mount is in the next pack, which is coming next week. That could just be a rumor though. Rumor has it that it will be in Collections on Tuesday with 2.4.3. These animal mounts are really the only thing these days, that people seem to really go crazy for. Give it time, they’ll throw in more. There is still one Varactyl and three (I think) Tauntaun mounts to be released. They’ll stretch out those Dewbacks for a very long time to sell packs. It’s going to look strange though, if they make the Dewbacks outrun speeder…

Varactyl mount is coming!

Check your mail! You should Just have received an email from BioWare saying that there is an upcoming varactyl mount in the new “Freelancer’s Bounty Pack” in SWTOR. The Varactyl was also a rideable mount awarded to any player who bought the digital download edition of Rage of the Wookiees in Star Wars Galaxies. This species of cliff-climbing lizards is native to the planet Utapau. Loyal and smart, these creatures are often ridden for quick transport from one place to another. A loyal, plumed female varactyl named Boga is the mount of choice of Obi-Wan Kenobi during his pursuit of General Grievous in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Cory Butler tweeted a new pod racer

Cory Butler tweeted a photo of a new pod racer. The art assets used for the floor are new, and look a lot like you’d expect a racing circuit’s track to look like. A few data minings ago, we found some data that seemed to be something like podracing tracks with boost pads. Could it be true?! Here is the new ride: pic.twitter.com/aBB1cPIAga — Cory Butler (@BlazeofCory) July 25, 2013
