BioWare published a new video showing the changes you can do to your toon, using the new Dye Modules that comes with Star Wars: The old Republic Game Update 2.1 “Customization”. Personally I really like this Dye feature – because it forces the developers to come up with new armor rather than just recolor it and call it new armor. A very bold move and I hope it works out! Check out the video below:
This is just a heads up that BioWare will be taking down the servers for scheduled maintenance on may 14th, 2013. We will post the patch notes as soon as they become available. On Tuesday May 14th, all game servers, SWTOR.com, and the launcher will be unavailable as we perform scheduled maintenance. Game Update 2.1.0 will be implemented during this downtime.

Due to issues with the upcomming patch, BioWare postponed todays maintenance. Eric Musco’s posted here about it if you want to know more.

As we mentioned earlier today, BioWare are taking down the servers for scheduled maintenance tomorrow. As part of being awesome, BioWare have already posted the patch notes for the update that will be applied tomorrow. Check it out below: Crew Skills Artifice Reverse Engineering certain color crystals will no longer provide an error message. Advanced Crew Skill training is no longer required to Reverse Engineer color crystals of any type. PvP Note: For more details about these changes, please visit this post. The effect of Bolster on empty item slots has been decreased. Due to itemization changes, Expertise has been removed from all War Hero and Elite War Hero pieces except for weapon crystals. So there you have it. Your maxed elite warhero set is now vendor trash. But I guess that’s the sad nature of the MMO X-Pack beast.
