  • prdc

    Can they fix the animation for last year’s Life Day Snow bombs, and maybe make them available again so I can purchase them on new characters?

    • McNooberton

      you can unlock it in the collections for like 240 cartel coins

      • Neg Sani

        Where in collections are the snow balls?

        • erruss

          very bottom if i remember correctly under special event(cant say for sure as not at home, might just be thinking achievements)

          • abaddonsmummy

            to you all…… orbs? snow balls? tinsel bombs?

            Yoda would be turning over in his grave!

            on no wait he became zombie ghost yoda. 😛

      • prdc

        Maybe the Life day orb, but not the snow bomb

        • McNooberton

          ya thats right it is the tinsel bomb, my bad

  • Jonathan Parker

    Fireworks! That’s going to make a great edition to my Nar Shaddaa landing pad. The other items are great too, I can always use more paintings and large decorations. I already bought my Sniper’s place on Dromund Kaas, but I can at least get a deal on my new Sage’s Coruscant home.

  • Waxon

    Wow, a 4997 credit discount. Think I’ll take the savings and buy a full set of that Series 614 cybernetic armor set I’ve always wanted but could never afford.

    • Corwin

      With 4997 credits you can buy a few! Can you get me one too, I am out of credits… 🙁

      • Revanite

        You could get like 40 sets I’d bet. How much are they worth atm? 10 credits each maybe?

    • abaddonsmummy

      and with the change you could buy enough of the ‘Suckorro’ weapons to arm all the jawas on tatooine.

  • holyfrog

    Where are all the people saying they want a refund on all the money they spent on buying these SH?

  • Xorras

    Unlocks for SH are 3 creds too? Or purchase only?

    • Vodorlo

      Just purchase.

  • Sarigar

    That galaxy hologram is really nice, will make a striking centerpiece (in the colloquial sense) for a room.

  • Jimpal83

    I like the fireworks launcher. I plan on putting as many as I can on one of my balconies and seeing the chaos that ensues. Better than giving us the 25 fireworks each year.

  • Infernus

    Really not all that impressed. The stuff is nice, but for an anniversary celebration, it’s pretty weak indeed. I’ve seen other games do 10 times the amount of stuff and offer way more exciting giveaways to mark their anniversaries.

    • holyfrog

      Like Jimpal83 below said its better then a Crete with fireworks. I still have them from the first anniversary.

      • Infernus

        A solid lump of crap is better than explosive diarrhea but it’s still a lump of crap. 🙂

        • abaddonsmummy

          as they say you cant poilish a turd but you can roll it in glitter!

  • Zertan

    do you need to be sub to got all this stuff?

    • Darth-Robin

      i hope not if im honest

    • Aleira

      Nope, no need to be sub, I just bought both coruscant and dromund kaas strongholds as preffered player. 3 credits each 🙂

  • damagecrab

    I thought 5K was dirt cheap to begin with!! C’mon, BioWare. Give us something a little juicier, now. Maybe a free utility or area unlock? I don’t know. Nothing ridiculous, just something worth talking about.

    • holyfrog

      You see this is the problem with giving the masses free stuff. Give them an inch and they want a mile.

      • damagecrab

        Right. Because I specifically asked for something outrageous, didn’t I? Nice strawman ya got there, Dorthy.

        • Holyfrog

          Why do they have to GIVE you anything. You missed the point. You’re like a selfish 5 year old who doesn’t say thank you for their Hot Wheels but says “I wanted Legos!”

          • damagecrab

            Wow. Ok , this apparently goes alot deeper than the fact that I (and most other players) already have those strongholds. This is affecting you on a personal level. Seriously. It’s just a game. Go outside.

      • Ben Gimson

        No we want something decent, not a reduction on something that’s already basically free. Hardly a mile.

      • damagecrab

        I know, right?!?! Look at the long ass list of shit I asked for… go ahead. I’ll wait.

    • KellUrsa

      No I agree. Perhaps for that time only, get a Dromund Kaas or Coruscant house with all the areas unlocked. That’d be a better promotion.

    • Infernus

      I agree, it doesn’t have to be over the top…just something to make ya go…wow, that’s cool.

  • darkfather

    Yet again, for the 3rd year in a row, BORING Celebration promotional and items. VERY Lackluster. Bioware does not know how to party.

  • R315r4z0r

    Are we still gonna get the 25 fireworks in the mail like we did the previous 2 years?

    • Darth-Robin

      lol make a new char on a different server and you still get the fireworks LOL

  • wosidratomt

    Uh, what is happening on January 12th?

    • Popo

      The game shuts down. Enjoy the fireworks while you can.

    • Vodorlo

      Nothing. Probably when the event ends and the items become unavailable.

  • Seph

    Bioware: best reward ever was the Party Jawa. Please use that as your benchmark and try and beat it!

  • Corwin

    Alright. Free and nice decorations are great! But… 5000 changed to 3? A lvl15 character usually has more than 5000 and can purchase it. It’s like no discount at all, useless… I mean, seriously, how can you not have 5k? For 3 years anniversary could have at least discounted Nar Shadaa or something.

  • dodgerfn

    At least we can buy 10 each of the decorations and use them, unlike the Rishi idol. That one made no sense to me…

    • Ben Gimson

      Yeah, can only have 1 Rishi idol, but can get 10 Grand Statues of Revan? Go figure 😛

  • Neg Sani

    Thumbs up to BW for the decorations. They should probably add something else though for people who don’t care about GSH.

    • Lorgren Benirus

      What kind of person doesn’t care about personal stronghold? Forget the decorating and such if you don’t care about it, the fact that you can have own lag-less GTN, personal bank, guild bank, legacy bank all at hand, workstation and so on.. Not to mention the handy ability of teleporting into it from anywhere and then returning back onto the same spot, good if you need to grab or stash something fast. There’s no sane reason whatsoever not to have a stronghold, really.

      • Илья Шиманов

        There is, it is called guild ship.

      • Neg Sani

        I enjoy the stronghold, but a lot of people could care less. So yes, they should have one for legacy storage/conquest but there’s a good chunk of people that just don’t want to decorate and so these decoration rewards aren’t going to appeal to them.

        And I wouldn’t say it’s lagless, quite the opposite in my experience. But it is quite handy.

  • y2z

    Not that throwing snowballs or buying limited edition gear wasn’t a blast the previous two years but I’m hoping for something a little bit more this year.

    • Holyfrog

      That was Life Day not the anniversary. Don’t worry though there is Life Day stuff coming too.

      • y2z

        I didn’t say it was but it’s around the same time so I thought it worth mentioning. Personally, I’d like to see a special FP, or scavenger hunt or something, for Life Day.

  • AbnerDoon

    It’s something for those that don’t have those strongholds yet. My only concern is do the fireworks have to be activated or are they always on? The only thing I want to see at the moment is that new sleigh Vectron. 😀

  • Mac

    I will say…it’s better than 1st and 2nd anniversary was.

    • Ben Gimson

      Not really hard to beat :’)

  • Darth-Robin

    now i would have been more overjoyed if the tatooine one costed 3 credits but the 5k one haha lol just lol, now if it also reduced all the expansion prices like the balcony that cost 1 mil yeah would have been great:)

  • Kodar

    Up above, in the section that has a fireworks show in motion, what is on the landing pad? Is that ice blue jello??

    • Vos_L

      Gigantic Crystal (Cyan) – from the Constable’s Pack

      • Kodar

        Thanks. I learned something new today. Just more CC to spend for stuff!

  • Deshik

    the strongholds made the personal ships nearly useless. All those expensive ship extensions have gone for naught with the strongholds.

    • You can’t use your stronghold to fly to planets. :p
      Your ship upgrades will still be useful for your alts.
      If there’s something that made personal ships useless, I’d say it was the priority transport terminals on the fleet (which are a godsend of convenience)

      • wosidratomt

        I can use it to “fly” to Dromund Kaas, Coruscant, Nar Shaddaa or Tatooine.

        And the combat dummy is useless for lowlevel alts, because it’s Level 60.

        The dummy belongs to the Stronhold. Because there is the space to place that thing.

        I never bought a mailbox for the ship. Never. What else can be found on the ship?

        The ships problem is: it takes 2-4 loading screens to get there (without priority transport or Stronghold).

  • abaddonsmummy

    Any idea how much these items are?
    Not the strongholds but the pictures, holo etc…

    • dodgerfn

      Umm if you read above it says “free”

      • Ben Gimson

        Tbf, I’ll believe that when I see it 😛

        • dodgerfn

          It’s here in print, they better be free

      • abaddonsmummy

        WHAT…… I have to read it all now!

        I hate bioware and all their lackys!! 😛

  • Murphy

    A 4,997 credit discount on access to a stronghold. Seriously? So let me get this straight, Bioware gets rid of all training costs, which don’t get me wrong, is a huge bonus to players… especially lower level ones who don’t have a stronghold yet. Then they drop this on us like it’s such a great deal? Factoring the now free training cost in, pretty much anyone in the game can EASILY afford 5k access to a stronghold, in fact, they could buy both Coruscant & Dromund Kaas and still be way ahead compared to leveling up just a few days ago.

    Honestly, if you can’t afford a measly 5k then you’re in for a real shock when you want to gain access to the balcony.


  • Jonathan Parker

    I’m kinda sad now, after thinking about it. The strongholds are only getting a discount because most players already had them. You still have to pay incredible amounts of credits for the expansions, so it doesn’t really change much (I could buy these strongholds thousands of times at normal price). Also, the fireworks launchers only work on small and narrow medium hooks, so I can’t put them out on my landing pad next to the Revan statues. In fact, the only outside hooks that I can put them on are restricted because I don’t have the damn expansion. Please let us place smaller items into any hook that’s bigger than the required one, that would help so much.

    • Holyfrog

      You do know you can change the hook sizes right?

      • Jonathan Parker

        The layout on the Nar Shaddaa “landing pad” only gives you centerpiece, large, and medium hooks. You can’t go any smaller than that, and the fireworks only work on the two smaller hook types, narrow medium and small.

  • Varrus

    Can we unlock any of these decorations(Specifically the Holo Galaxy Map) for our guilds? Sorry, can’t read all of the article because I’m at work and yeaaaaah. XD

  • Sandis Rozuleja Dvorovs

    It’s been three wonderful years, looking forward to another three years, thank you BW!…

  • Josef Tauser

    Would be cool if you could put screen shots as a wall decoration or painting.

  • ddMcall


  • Dragsen

    Amazing work Bioware! I have enjoyed SWTOR since launch and ever since then you guys have worked hard to make it even better. 3.0 and Galactic strongholds were amazing 🙂 Looking forward what you guys will come up with next.

  • Drool Bear

    I like that some of the paintings are portrait and some are landscape. Too bad they won’t look any good in Nar Shaddaa due to some weird lighting bug, But they should look good in all the other 3 strongholds.

  • EleniRPG

    I’m excited for the fireworks. I’ve been hoping for those since I saw them at the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event 😀

  • Sadriel_Fett

    It’s a Festivus miracle!

  • Kylmc715

    I’d rather have the room unlocks be 3 credits. The original 5,000 credits is chump change, even for a free to play, I’d imagine.

  • SWguy

    Do I have to sub to get this stuff, or can my preferred account get it too?

  • Shawn Hargrave

    Meh those storage bins are bit depressing wish i could have nieghbors and a nieghborhood id prefer 24x xp personally lmao

    • darthshadow

      what MMO had neighbors or a neighborhood? SWG only had empty houses that blocked your view no nieghbors. Course we all know how that turned out in SWG a ghost town after a week. One of the biggest MMO flops of all time, so bad they had to completely remake the game

      • Shawn Hargrave

        lets see lotro has neighbors and nieghborhoods swg did not have empty houses lol and you could actually make a house and put the house where you wanted it. So that arguement is lolz. Lotro even now live has better housing with nieghbors and nieghborhoods so i hope that answers your questions

  • A Reno from Santa Claus

    -50% off Collections again plz on this celebrations :>

  • revan

    The way I read it: 3 credits for the whole Stronghold with all unlocks? Anything else wouldn’t make much sense tbh.
