Your old PvP commendations and 1.2

Your old PvP commendations and 1.2

Hey everyone, your old Champion/Battlemaster/Centurion are no longer being used in patch 1.2. They do not disappear, you just can’t use them to purchase armor anymore (they are no longer obtainable either). So the question is – what are they being used for now?

March 27: As of march 27 PTS patch, the exchange change between Warzone and Mercenary Commendations is now 10 Mercenary Commendations for 10 Warzone commendations. (Previously it was 30 Mercenary Commendations for 10 Warzone Commendations)

March 29: As of March 29 PTS march, Ranked Warzone Commendations can no longer be exchanged for normal Warzone Commendations (i.e. you can’t skip unranked warzones now in your PvP gear progresssion)

March 29: New expertise Crystals added to the PvP items vendor, price for Longspur Recon changed to 1500 Warzone Commendations

Class icons for 1.2!

Class icons for 1.2!

Something that is new in 1.2 is the introduction of class icons! These are icons on top of yourself and other player’s head that will tell you what class/advanced class they are. This was done for the ease of identification of player classes since in 1.2 many players will be wearing orange custom armors due the ability to completely remove mods from endgame gears!

1.2 New Armor Models

1.2 New Armor Models

Hey everyone, I went on the PTS after 1.2 went live and took screenshots of all the new tier endgame PvP/PvE armors. The first two pictures are just showing you the new models while the next couple will show you all the color variations possible within a class. There are currently 2 color variations for the PvE set and 4 color variations for the PvP set (unrated & rated, different in just color, no stats difference).

Patch 1.1.5 PvP Commendation system–Infographic

Hey everyone, recently I was asked by my friends at askmrrobot.com (home of the excellent SWTOR armory & item database) to write up a quick guide on how the endgame PvP currency in SWTOR works. If you are not PvPing consistently and keeping track of the patch notes, it is fairly easy to get lost in the many changes of the PvP currency system since SWTOR’s launch. Rather than writing a post filled with text, I thought it might be a good place to use an infographic to present the information.

Upcoming in 1.2–A summary

Hey everyone, I recently had the pleasure of attending the Guild Summit via livestreaming, where a host of panels were held discussing the upcoming patch 1.2 (scheduled to be released sometime in early April) and other new features/changes that are coming to SWTOR. There were quite a bit of information – the transcript of which I have captured here if you want to view all the details. In case you don’t feel like reading through pages of my notes, I have created a guide here summarizing all the important features you can expect for patch 1.2 and beyond!

Flashpoint guide: Red Reaper

Hey everyone, this guide will cover the flashpoint Red Reaper, it is an often neglected flashpoint aimed at people in the level range of anywhere from 42-47(or even 50). It is a rather short and quick flashpoint and fairly easy if you know the boss fight mechanics. I skipped this flashpoint on my Empire character due to the rush to 50 but I will cover it on my Republic character.

Numerical SWTOR population data for US PVP/RP-PVP servers

Hey everyone! As promised, here is the population data for PVP/RP-PVP servers. If you are looking for the equivalent data for PVE/RP-PVE servers, you can find them here.

Remember, this is just cross-sectional (snapshot in time) population data – this is the data anyone without sophisticated software or a team of dedicated researchers would have obtained if they made level 1 characters on all the PVP servers and checked out the planet population numbers using the who-list window during peak times. It is not actual total population data but rather a representation of it. There are limitations with every study and every methodology – like everything else in life, take it a grain of salt!
