Are you one of those people farming orange bracers/belts for your characters? Or maybe you are a marauder/sentinel and wondering why there isn’t any orange bacers/belts for you! Have no fear! Legacy vendors are coming in 1.2 and they will solve all your problems! (ok maybe not all).
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!
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).
Hey everyone, you all probably already seen the advanced class distribution graph shown at the guild summit (the number markings were not too accurate and has being corrected for use in the inforgraphic below). Alratan @ sithwarrior.com suggested to me that it might be nice to have a relative advanced class ratio based on that – in an infographic format. So here is the result of that idea!
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.
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!
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.
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!
Hey everyone, server population and faction balance has always being a hot topic in SWTOR. In response to the surging demands in the early days of SWTOR launch, many servers were opened up to drive down the server queues. Come March 1st, oceanic servers will be opened up, this will add quite a few servers to the already extensive sever list.
To my knowledge, there has being previously very little, if any, study on the actual SWTOR population for each server. Bioware has not released any actual numbers and 3rd party sites lack the tools to analyze the population effectively (i.e. TORstatus.net offers a longitudinal examination of server load, but offers no insight to actual server population).
I have started a little project that will give some actual numbers to the population status on each of the SWTOR servers. This project is only completed for US PVE and RP-PVE servers. If there is enough interest, I can do the same for US PVP servers and maybe EU servers in the future. All the data are collected by hand, via creating two level 1 characters on each server and using the who list to record population numbers in each planet.
