General

  • New options are available for the Ground Target Area of Effect reticle:
    • Sticky Ground Target Reticule – When active, this option makes it so your Ground Target Reticule doesn’t disappear if the target location is out of range or the ability otherwise fails. Example: Bounty Hunter attempts to activate Death From Above, but their target location is out of range. With this option active, the GTAoE reticule will persist and allow the player to instantly attempt to use the ability again. If this option isn’t active, then the reticule will disappear and the player will have to click again.
    • Quick Ground Target Activation – When active, pressing a hotkey that belongs to a GTAoE twice will use the ability at the feet of the Player’s target. Example: The Player has the Pass the Huttball ability saved to Hotkey #3. The Player targets an ally and then presses 3 two times. The Huttball Pass will be activated at the feet of the targeted ally. If this option is turned off, then there are no changes to the existing behavior.
  • All equippable gear pieces have their Item Rating displayed in the tooltip. Weapons and armor have not changed.
  • In the equipment tooltips, mods/enhancements now display their Item Rating in parentheses instead of their Item Level.
  • While unequipped, mods/enhancements display their Item Rating in their tooltip.

Operations

    This iteration of Nightmare Mode is a little different than others. The usual additional mechanics are present, as well as a new buff on the enemies called Nightmare Power. This buff grants the usual additional health and damage that has been added to previous Nightmare Modes. Anyone powerful and coordinated enough to defeat Dread Master Brontes while she is under the effect of Nightmare Power will be granted a new unique title!

    At a future date, we will remove this buff, leaving the new mechanics in place but the health and damage dealt will return to usual Hard Mode values, and the title will no longer be possible to obtain.

    • Tensor Field – This system component increases the speed and turning rate of all nearby allies.
    • These ships can also equip a Repair Drone as their shield. (Identical to the Repair Drone found on the Bomber)
  • Two new Strike Fighters, the FT-7B Clarion and the FT-3C Imperium have been added. These command ships only have one primary and secondary weapon, but have system components that improve the effectiveness of your allies:
    • Combat Command – Increases weapon accuracy and power generation for all nearby allies (including the user)
    • Repair Probes – Attaches a repair probe to all nearby allied ships, which slowly restores hull over 20 seconds.
    • Remote Slicing – Transmits a slicing code that disables a ship’s system ability, and slowly drains shield power, making the ship vulnerable to your allies.

  • Daily and Weekly PvP Missions have been updated to include credit for the new Warzone.
  • Added the Mission Terminal that begins each of the various PvP Missions to the spawning area of each Warzone.
  • Corrected an issue that would cause combinations of lower level mods (such as the popular 46 Prototype mods) and higher level color crystals (including those from the Cartel Market) to result in a higher Bolster bonus than intended.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented weapon damage ranges from being properly bolstered. This results in an increase in damage coming from abilities that deal weapon damage.
  • Bolster has been updated to account for the new tiers of gear, and now provides additional Expertise to elder game PvE gear. Bolster still caps at a level slightly below Obroan gear.
  • Characters who do not wield weapons with Expertise mods and crystals are now capped at 1936 Expertise instead of the full 2018.

  • Kaellan

    Is “New Story Arc: Forged Alliances!” is that story arc the new flashpoints? Or is it something separate?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Flashpoint storyline

      • Kaellan

        Okay, thanks! I hope they don’t do all of the new storyline content as group activities.

        • y2z

          It’ll probably be more along the lines of the Dread Masters storyline content than Makeb content. 3.0 seems like it’ll be different entirely from this endgame storyline (that’s my interpretation anyway).

        • The Guilty Party

          I’m sympathetic to not wanting to have to group, but tactical flashpoints are pretty laid-back. You would have to actively try to hold your group back to get people yelling at you for not having awesome skills, and they’re doable in very short timeframes with any 4 people. So a lot of the usual (valid, imho) complaints about forced-group content mostly don’t apply here.

          • Kaellan

            I was thinking about Final Fantasy IVX online..you have to do certain dungeons in order to advance the main storyline. I just didn’t want to see that here..

  • y2z

    Where will we get the Dreadforged schems?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You can RE them

      • Derica

        And percentage to learn is 100% or..?

        • Levram

          No, the chance to learn the schematic for any given piece of Dread Forged equipment from reverse engineering is 20%.

          • Derica

            Thanks for the response. Maybe you know if it is bop? If it is, then who would use this? xD

            • Seph

              Nothing has changed with crafting. RE is never 100% that I know of, and when you craft something it’s never BOP. It’s always BoE.

              • Gregarius

                Unfortunately this is not true. There are old Rakata craftable items, which are BoP (51 mods).

              • y2z

                I’ve got some Energized schems (like the old Tionese gear) that’s BoP as well. I think (s)he possibly meant RE’d schems are BoE though.

              • dodgerfn

                And crystals as well

              • Sayaendo

                The offhands that you can craft from the Makeb rep schematics are bop. One of the reasons I never bothered purchasing them.

            • Robert Hindy

              Its BoE, like the other RE items.

          • Robert Hindy

            10% if Preferred/F2P.

  • Guillaume Morin

    Hi Dulfy,

    I was wondering if you had details about: “Dreadforged gear is now craftable”

    Will all 78 mods, armoring, barreils, etc will be craftable now?

    • TJWoo

      yes

  • mike

    I hate bioware for changing jarring strike….

  • Chakra Kusanagi

    Nice to see that they are fixing more helmets that lack voice modulation :)

  • Trogdor

    Wish they hadn’t made sweep/smash require a primary target.

    • Skeek

      There are worse nerfs in this patch. So you smasher have been very lucky.

    • Argaria

      Wish they hadn’t screwed up Orbital Strike…

    • Sean

      I discovered an interesting quirk that may or may not be a bug. Yes, Sweep/Smash requires a primary target. The target, however, does not need to be within range of the attach, which is still a PBAoE; you can target a mob that is some distance away from you, well out of range of the area covered by the attack, and you can still perform the attack. So the power has changed to require there to be a hostile mob somewhere in the vicinity for you to target, but doesn’t actually require you to be attacking that target.

  • Methoxa

    Servers back online

  • micmitja

    hi there just makes me wonder if anyone knows, am looking at ilum new legacy offhand s there are 6 different in total
    [Gray Helix Defense Shield]
    [Gray Helix Deflector Shield]
    [Gray Helix Focus]
    [Gray Helix Generator]
    [Gray Helix Shotgun]
    [Gray Helix Vibroknife]

    and makes me wonder whats the difference between those 2 [Gray Helix Defense Shield]
    [Gray Helix Deflector Shield] in mean of transportation armorings and mods

    • Mike

      one is for aim
      one is for strenght

      • Robert Hindy

        “The one for strength” can also be used for Shadows/Assassins.

        It is tech vs Force power, because that is built into the offhand.

    • Robert Hindy

      One has Tech Power for Powertech/Vanguard.

      The other has Force Power for Guardians/Juggernauts and Shadows/Assassins.

  • Okamakiri

    I thought these new FPs were suppose to come with HM versions as well… fail

  • Warsnot

    Could anyone please post a comparison of Brutalizer VS Obroan stats and maybe the look of the sets? Thanks

    • Robert Hindy

      Sets look the same as Obroan, but with a White/Red theme for Imperials. I’m guessing it is a White/Blue theme for Republic.

      1 person is posting multiple threads on the SWTOR.com forum over this.

      • Warsnot

        Yeah, well the reason I was asking is because I’m at work right now and finishing in 8hours. Kinda impatient to know what the stat difference is. Kinda expected the look to just be a recolor, as usual. Oh well

  • Haggardbr

    Are the new flashpoints for level 55’s only?

    • y2z

      yea

      • Haggardbr

        Ah crap… and here I thought I could use the new Republic Assault skin on my lowbie char’s HK-51…

  • Mike

    I suppose the rep thing are rare drops?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      It is not a rep item just a token thingie from the final boss. Got 1 every run I think but you gotta roll with other players

      • Mike

        I saw 1 in four runs

  • Lindsay

    “New bundles of Imperial and Republic Galactic Starfighter cosmetic items” are these older gear items simply bundled up or are there new items on the Cartel Market? (I’d look, but I’m at work.)

  • Argaria

    Patch 2.7 is quite buggy… nightmare mechanics are leaking to SM/HM modes of BOTH oriconian operations… Kinda funny, cuz we know a new NiM mechanic for DM Tyrans. :) Pity though, it’s present in both SM and HM now (Simplification is instant-kill if not counteracted). More bugs like that.

      This is happening to us as well. NiM/HM mechanics in SM Tyrans. Threw us for a loop. :)

    Dulfy, do u have a list where i can see all guides u created?

    • Anabak

      i mean all guides from swtor, not only from this patch

    Much better on the classes, not as awful as I thought it would come out, and I’m already enjoying the new ships on GSF, it changed the game of the Empire at our favor.

    Is there a vendor for the new Dread Master gear somewhere or are there no tokens for that gear?

  • coolio

    Not sure if anyone else tested but I think Focused Defense is bugged and does not heal you at all ( This is from a tank perspective not dps)

  • Josef Tauser

    Is it just me or does the game run a little more sluggish since the update ? I’m getting slightly reduced frame rates everywhere and odd stuttering on fleet and on GSF maps.
