SWTOR Vandin Huttball PvP Map Preview
SWTOR Vandin Huttball PvP Map Preview. This map will be released with Patch 5.9.3 in late September.Vandin is a new Huttball PvP map that will be added with Patch 5.9.3. It has similar mechanics but it is bigger than the original and Quesh Huttball map that we have now.
Much like the Huttball maps we have now, there is a central Hutball spawn with acid pools that slows you down and air vents that will launch you in random directions.
On either side of the map are platforms leading to the endzone where you can score your huttball. There are at least three paths you can take to reach the endzone.
Along the platforms are various traps to contend with. Unlike the existing Huttball maps, there are now three types of traps
- Fire – Very fast and high damage, most lethal
- Poison gas – You can run over these but they leave behind a nasty DoT that will kill you without quick heals
- Electricity – They don’t do much damage but will stun you for a few seconds.
What is interesting also with this map is that it features an “edge” on the two non goal post ends where you can get health packs/pvp boosters but can also fall off and die. Luckily everyone will have access to a grapple special ability on a 30s cooldown that will pull you back up if you fall off.
