SWTOR New Augments in Game Update 5.9

Bioware will be adding a new tier of augments with Game Update 5.9.

New Augments – Game Update 5.9 | 04.04.2018, 12:20 PM

Hey folks,

One of the things we have talked about is that with the launch of Game Update 5.9, there will be a new set of Augments introduced. These Augments are primarily targeted at players who participate in the games most difficult content, Operations and Ranked Warzones. Let’s talk about what they are and how you get them.

The new Augments will all be in a single tier at Item Rating 240 at Legendary quality. The stat distribution for these Augments will mirror the ones which were introduced in Game Update 5.6 (with the Copero Flashpoint).

To craft these Augments will require the same materials as those introduced in Game Update 5.6, but at higher quantities. As a reminder those materials can be found in Command Crates, from Master Mode Operation bosses, and from Ranked PvP Missions. We are also going to add crafting boxes with those materials to Conquests. Medium Yield planets will have a small crafting box and Large Yield Planets will have a large crafting box.

The Schematics to learn these new Augments will not be taught from a trainer. They will be Bind on Equip drops from the new Flashpoint in 5.9. In Master Mode, every boss has a chance to drop a Schematic and the final boss is guaranteed to drop one. Every enemy throughout the Flashpoint has a very low chance to drop one as well.

That is the breakdown of what you can expect of the new Augments, coming in Game Update 5.9. Thanks everyone, let us know if you have any questions.

        I’m terribly sorry, I guess I just can’t help but to correct you very slightly. I know, I’m a grammar Nazi…

        “Can’t be repeated never again with same char” – The correct form would be:

        “CAN never be repeated with the same char”, or in alternative:

        “CANNOT be repeated with the same char”. The use of “again” is secondary, since repetition is already mentioned.

        I know, I know… Who the hell am I to correct you? But I sense English is not your native language, and your writing is hard to follow sometimes. Adding double negatives does not help lol…

        Again, don’t take me the wrong way. I don’t do it with any bad intention.

        Good hunting out there.

    These Augments are primarily targeted at players who left the game years ago and won’t come back. Let’s talk
    about how to grind your butt off to get them: random drops.

  • John Kosto

    “To craft these Augments will require the same materials as those introduced in Game Update 5.6, but at higher quantities.”

    Wow these guys are really clueless. They tried to force everyone to do Ranked PvP for fuck’s sake, since this was the only reliable source for Charged Matter Transubstantiators, and now they will use these rare mats but at even higher quantities for the new augments…

    • Ry

      While all true, I will add that I haven’t done any ranked PvP, and I still craft like 30-40 augments a week. Let the PvPers earn their charged matters, just buy them off the GTN like I do.

      PS. I still don’t like it :/

      • John Kosto

        If the only source for your mats is buying them off the GTN, that means that you spend at LEAST 50 million credits a week. Good for you, but that’s not how it should be.

        • True indeed it sure shouldn’t be like that.. Shame that Swtor’s Skeleton Eaware Devs crew still hasn’t Learned from other Mmo Companies.. Oh that reminds me that no doubt at some point Eaware will copy Wow’s Legion Storyline Feature. That is the Task Giver Talking to you via Popup window while you’re out in the World doing the Task. Wow’s Legion has that cool feature & nice to listen the task Giver when you’re out in the World <3 Cool addition to Legion.

        • Ry

          Yup, I spend around that much on mats a week. However I also make about 70-80 million selling those augments back (with some spare for my characters). So overall, it’s not a big deal for me.

          I guess I accept the fact that I can get one type of mat, let other players get other mats and we can ‘trade’ with each other via credits so we all get what we need.

          Again, I’d rather there be other sources for the mats. I’d rather the mats drop from operations, but then I guess the PvPers will be unhappy. If you think about it, in previous expansions the Void Matter (or whatever the equivalent of that was I forget), only dropped from OPs that allowed you to craft the top tier gear.

    • Paulo Gomes

      You can look at it from a reversed angle too, Kosto:

      Forcing pvp’ers to play a Flashpoint to get augments to use in pvp…

      Swtor : the game that forces you to do content you don’t want, to get the stuff you need to do the stuff you DO want…

      I have to laugh, I really do. What happened to the “good old days”, when you got the stuff you needed doing the type of content you like?

    • I wonder how Messed up Charles “Sly Smile” Boyd was to come up with this name “Transubstantiator” 😀

    • O.D. Hansen

      This is why I look back on every sub time i’ve had with depression; you need to grind a very specific thing just to fill out the recipe they demand, or shell out millions of credits you don’t have for the GTN guys who planned ahead, then by the time a latecomer ends up about ready to do nim content they up the caps. Until perhaps tier 4 command crates are only occasionally dropping CMTs, so unless you’re with a hardcore guild to win conquest now you have to do your weekly ranked if you want to get the mats in time for 6.0. Why didn’t they just nerf the purple rewards for pvp and transfer some of them into more flashpoints/HM ops? This should really piss off the portion of the player base who grind for co-op play rather than competitive play

  • Mark Saunders

    So, ESO’s Summerset looks good doesn’t it? Oh, and a W.o.W expansion is out in august. And we get augments in 5.9, due whenever they can be arsed releasing it untested. Logged in once I think in 2018. As I’ve got both Witcher 3 in full yet to play and divinity, I think I’ll pass on SWTOR this year, and EA in general. Will keep checking here for some kind of miracle expansion but it’s just not worth the bother re-playing old content.

    • Pst: I assume you meant 2017 on your comment’s 3rd line 😉 Ah y Beautiful Witcher 3 with high difficulty & relaxed pace adventuring.. Then stunning Old School Divinity Original Sin 1 & 2 🙂 Soundtracks in them.. Lovely.. Banter & amount of Lore & well made Storylines in them.. Lovely.. Gfx.. Lovely.. 😛 Challenge on high difficulties.. Lovely.. Crafting mechanics.. Lovely <3 x) All that amazing RPG Content made by Small Studio..

      Learn from that Eaware's Main Studio & then Ex Montreal Studio that did horrible: ME Tired Faces Andromeda & Bad Glitches around the Corners. I've been a Divinity Original Sin Backer since DOS1 <3 Take care enjoy 🙂

  • They still have ranked WZs? A 4×4 circle jerk where a bunch of little fags stand around and talk shit to each other. What a total joke. Definitely not playing. Definitely not buying Anthem or any other title those assholes at EA are connected to.

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Are you projecting your insecurities again?

      • EyesOfGehenna .

        Let’s be honest, calling ranked warzones “difficult content” is a joke. There is nothing difficult about standing around in warzones to farm mats, is there? If you don’t beat a boss 4 times you get a repair bill. If you lose a warzone 4 times you get the most expensive mat in the game as a reward. Can you honestly say that’s not bs?

        • Damn well Said.. Perfect & y Sad But True with Swtor’s Eaware Devs being one Small Weird Crew 😛 “f you don’t beat a boss 4 times you get a repair bill. If you lose a warzone 4 times you get the most expensive mat in the game as a reward. Can you honestly say that’s not bs?” <– Yep.. 😀 :/

        • PvP = lowest form of play

          PvP in general is a joke played by people who can’t master hm or nim mechs. They pat themselves on the back but in reality they just hop around like morons flogging each other. You can always pick a pvp’er in pve .. they’re the one running away from the trash instead of maxing their parse and burning that shit down.

          And we’ve all seen the ranked pvp queue cries ‘in it to lose’. GJ morons.

          • EyesOfGehenna .

            People can get upset when I call Ranked Warzones the SWTOR welfare plan but they give rewards out for losing and then set it on an equal footing with operations. I also hate that they nerfed operations into the grounds back in 4.0 with removing so many mechanics.

            I’m not sure who the current target audience is for this game but it’s not me.

            • Indeed. Was Sad at 4.0 when 1st Mind Boggling Mom & Daughter Feud Expansion came & it had those Shameful Simplifications For Operations a.k.a Raids :/ Swtor’s Eaware Crew are maybe 1st MMO Devs who Rank up 1st in Simplifying their MMO’s Gameplay. In any area.. Giving out lazy mode Progress without thinking a.k.a feeding plrs with Golden Spoon.

    • MKDAWUSS

      Just like your namesake didn’t play SWG or other SOE titles? 😛

      • H Lafrond

        ..and then you bring up SOE . They used to be the great gaming Satan, now we have EA.

    • Radio did not kill SWTOR.

      John Smedley tells the truth. Only idiots disagree

    • Cloudy

      Competition is too hard for you, bud?

  • Dan Santos

    Wait. These new augments will require more mats to cf=raft but their status will be the same as the previous ones? What the…

    • Ry

      No I think what he meant was that the new augments will have the similar ratio/breakdown as the 236 augments but obviously higher numbers. That is, you will have three stats unlike the older purple augments that had two stats.

  • Paulo Gomes

    Now I see it. I couldn’t see it when the first set of augments came about, but I sure can see it now.

    The question I asked (and a lot of others did too) when the first set of augments appeared was: why nerf classes, if you’re going to make augments that will be over the target dps/hps? It didn’t make sense.

    Because, really: the classes in TOR are depressing. They have butchered pretty much 70% of the classes in TOR. A new player won’t know better, but I do. I remember my Engineering Sniper, and how fun it used to be. I remember when Lightning Sorcerers were THE shit. I remember when Shadow tanks used to self heal. And lots more, but you get the picture.

    Of course these augments make sense. Because it’s a little more grindy. It’s a little more convoluted, a little bit more of boring work you have to do to play this game. Couple this with the inevitable “upgrade” in GC rank, the “revamp” of Conquest and the hamster wheel will keep forever turning, making you guys play roughly the same old content you’ve been playing since “Rise of the Emperor”, release almost 3 YEARS ago – April the 28th of 2015.

    I sincerely don’t understand how you guys can put up with this.

    • EyesOfGehenna .

      Endgame gearing in SWTOR today is most efficient by doing last boss runs via the Group Finder (Activity Window) and losing ranked warzones. So in essence the easiest content is rewarded the best. That’s one of the main reasons I couldn’t play this game anymore.

    • The same way you feel you have to express yourself each and every topic post.

      • Paulo Gomes

        Not really. Check the latest posts, I haven’t commented each and every one of them.

        I try to stay away from CM posts, because it really doesn’t interest me. But when these lovely people at BioWare call a cash-shop sale a GAME EVENT…

        And class changes I really can’t comment, because I am not privy as to how they are working.

        Only when BioWare seriously f**k up do I feel like commenting.

        Unfortunately, it happens a lot more often than it should…

        • “But when these lovely people at BioWare call a cash-shop sale a GAME EVENT…” <– Yep.. Ah these times when wish that could have "Scotty Beam Me Up" Transport available.. Would ask Scotty to put Eaware's HQ as Destination & B*atch Slap Some sense into Charles "Sly Smile" Boyd's Hollow Head..

    • abaddonsmummy

      New GC ranks will be welcome, all my alts are all at 300 and have been so for a while, and new augments are welcome especially in the HM ops (the harder ones).
      The problem lies in that as you pointed out there’s little new content to grind it on. The new ops is ace, I’m not just saying that it is really good with some superb mechanics, but it’s just one Ops…..and it’s finished.
      The new flashpoints are good to but as you say 95% of the content is old, there’s lots of it but it’s old.
      Recently they’ve re-done the conquests which was needed but they seem to have made some bad choices to implement, including actually bypassing their own content by rewarding last boss runs!!
      I mean seriously WTF!!
      Our guild is growing, but mainly new players with only a few returners (but not sure how long they will stay).
      We need information on new content, when and what.

  • Cucurulo

    We’re all gonna die first before this F game shuts down, dam it! SWTOR CURSE!!

  • SWtor ended on Ziost…

    …all content since then has just been a terrible nightmare your character is experiencing as the Emperor consumes all life in the galaxy.

  • ManDingoCC6901

    I knew it couldn’t be too long before the next big FU to the smaller guilds. I was okay with small yield planets giving less resources as long as they gave the same resource types, but here’s the line once again. Let’s not give any of the smaller crews mats for the new stuff.

    FU BioFail

  • yellow-power ftw

    so it seems will be with no new aug slots. we still use the rank 10. its something possitive

  • branky

    Another money/credit grab, 50 mil for 14 augments, rip alts….

    • Threjyan

      no worries ill craft them for you, and will take those 50M, to fuel my cartel market needs 😀

  • Kilsun Lithandrous

    the small, medium, large yield is good …on paper. But what’s to stop a large conquest only guild from invading “small yield” and go balls out and get over 1 million points in small yield “what’s the point if you only need 200k for your guild goal” ? they need to put limits on or else the yields are useless

    • Zero

      They definitely should cap guilds of certain sizes from competing in the small and medium yield tiers.
