Items stack limit raised to 9999 with SWTOR Patch 4.1

Eric Musco just informed us that Game Update 4.1 will increase the stack limit of items from 99 to 9999. Good call if you ask me! Hey folks, One of the issues we have seen brought up quite a bit in this thread is storage space. Although we aren’t adding new bays at this time, one change to help with storage is that any item which previously stacked to 99, will now stack to 9,999. This change is coming in Game Update 4.1 Thanks! -eric

Nude Patch for SWTOR (NSFW)

For our adult readers (or maybe still-teenager-at-heart readers) we have a fun little mod for SWTOR. For an initial warning, it does contain nudity and is NSFW. With that said, there is a nude patch for SWTOR that you may or may not already be aware of. You can download it here: http://www.gamevixenzone.net/hot-stuff-21/swtor-file-changer-nude-mod-1762/ It has an original version as well as version 1.1 and 1.2c. In the latter, everything is removed. All naked, all the time if you’re running this version, so one player decided to do some tweaks of his own and came up with some modifications which you will see here in the video. See an example in video with a cantina dancer: Here’s info from the creator of the improved mod: So, I packed three versions of the patch (I only changed the settings.txt file from the original, didn’t change any of the files. Except for fixing the…

Bioware explains Companion Healing Nerfs in SWTOR

With today’s  patch 4.0.2, companion healing power will be nerfed. Here is an explanation why. Companion Changes in 4.0.2 | 11.16.2015, 08:19 PM Hey folks, If you haven’t yet seen the 4.0.2 patch notes, you can view them here. There are some patch notes that we wanted to highlight and talk about specifically. Companion base stats have been reduced. Companion damage and healing output has been reduced. Some of you will certainly ask, why the need to nerf Companions? This is something that we definitely saw the community be divided on, and it was good for us to hear feedback from both sides. Ultimately, this decision came down to our own goals for Companions, along with data on how they were performing. What we saw in those instances is that Companions, simply put, were just way too good. Their healing and damage output could be greater than that of a very…

The 3.3 Drinking Game Celebration!

Hey, what fun would a new patch be if we didn’t turn it into a drinking game (adults only)? Here we have a lovely little way to enjoy 3.3 and celebrate with inebriated style! Every new patch, especially an update that brings new classes or other physical features to the game, is going to also bring the hordes of wanting to try the new class, the new zone, etc. Every MMORPGer knows this (and often dreads it on update day). So why not turn it into a little fun or have a few laughs from it? In all seriousness, if you drink, please drink responsibly.
