SWTOR: A Look Behind the Scenes with Ossus

swtor A Look Behind the Scenes with Ossus

BioWare just posted an interview with Charles Boyd, the Creative Director for Star Wars: The Old Republic, regarding Game update Game Update 5.10 ‘Jedi Under Siege’ witch went live back in december. Check it out: In Game Update 5.10 ‘Jedi Under Siege’ we saw the return of several characters. How did you decide which of these familiar faces players would see? Probably the biggest example here is Darth Malgus; I always felt he was a bit shortchanged in the core game’s storyline, given that he’s easily our most iconic and recognizable Sith character. That said, I didn’t want to bring him back until his return would feel like a natural part of the story. Now that we’ve returned to the core conflict of Republic versus Sith Empire that Malgus himself originally kicked off, it seemed like the right time to bring him back into the fold. Master Gnost-Dural is an interesting…

No SWTOR Roadmap for 2019 so far

No SWTOR Roadmap for 2019 so far

BioWare is not planing a Roadmap for SWTOR so far. I speculate that it might because BioWare Austine is waiting to see how the upcomming game Anthem does – to see whether they’ll have the staff numbers and resources/funding left to pull most of it off.  Here is the news: Roadmap | 02.04.2019, 10:38 AM Hey folks, Right now I don’t believe there are any plans for a formal roadmap in the coming weeks. To calm any concerns, that isn’t because there isn’t stuff happening this year, but we have been making an effort to give you more visibility into content sooner via PTS. With that in mind, here are some details: 5.10.1 is on PTS now, which you already know. That will come out in the next couple of weeks, more details on timing this week. After 5.10.1 is out the door, look for details on 5.10.2 going to PTS. We…

SWTOR: Masterwork Gear Changes in patch 5.10

Here is a new post by Eric Musco on how Masterwork gear will work with SWTOR Patch 5.10 Check it out: Masterwork Gear Changes in 5.10 | 11.20.2018, 01:50 PM   Hey folks, For those of you who are familiar with current Masterwork gearing plans from PTS, you will notice some changes. Otherwise, this may be an introduction to how all of this will work in 5.10. Throughout this post when I refer to Masterwork gear, I am referring to the new 252 and 258 item rating gear being introduced in 5.10. Based on our initial implementation there were a few key things we wanted to address: Getting Masterwork gear solely from PvP was more difficult than we would like. The implementation encouraged working directly to 258 while skipping 252. We don’t have a problem with this, but it made getting any gear upgrades more challenging and expensive than desired. By “stair…

SWTOR Bolster Plans for 5.10 and Beyond

Whenever we introduce new gear to the game, there is an inevitable conversation about what changes will be made to Bolster. As I mentioned in this thread, our original intention in 5.10 was to take Bolster and move it to 248. That thread along with the rest of the forums led to a lot of great feedback from all of you on how you feel about the state of Bolster, should it be higher, or lower, etc. That brought us to sit down and really look at what we want from Bolster now and going forward and so we are going to make an additional change. Let’s talk about why we originally landed on 248, where we are going next, and why.

The SWTOR Developers over at BioWare Austin has chosen to delay game update 5.9.3 until October 2, due to game bugs. Hey folks, The team has made the decision to delay the launch of Game Update 5.9.3 to next Tuesday, October 2nd. We have a handful of known issues that we are tracking for the Update which we want to address before it goes live. Unfortunately, we were unable to get them fixed in time for our planned release date tomorrow. Some of the issues we are seeing include: An issue with our Conquest scheduling which will stop it from proceeding as intended. The interface for holocalls not displaying properly. The preview window not activating properly for a variety of item types. In each one of these instances there is a workaround which would not actually block gameplay. Still, if we can avoid those issues being live we would like…
