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, 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!
