re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Satele Shan Server

I'm posting this because it's a bit of urgent news about SWTOR --

The vendor Tahoota on the Imperial Fleet is selling various companion gifts that do not list a purchase price (but they do have one). When purchased, they can be bought for far cheaper than is intended. It's a known bug that will be fixed very soon. In the meantime, it is not considered an exploit to buy and use the discounted gifts. However, it is an exploit to buy stacks of gifts and sell them back for profit. They must be used. You can send these gifts to your Republic toons to improve their companions, too.

Characters who Love "The Cheap Gifts"

---- Imperial Memorabilia – Best value
Arcann, Darth Marr, Elara Dorn, Hemdil Tre, Eckard Lokin, Malavai Quinn, Raina Temple, Shae Vizla, Talos Drellik, Veeroa Denz, Wampa
---- Imperial Memorabelia – Good value
Blizz, Scourge
---- Cultural Artifact – Best value
2V-R8, Ak'ghal Usar, C2-N2, Darth Hexid, Empress Arcina, Jaesa (Light), Khem Val, Lana Beniko, Nadia Grell, Talos Drellik, Vector Hyllus
---- Cultural Artifact – Good value
Ashara Zavros, Blizz, Bowdaar, Risha Drayen, Senya Tirall, T7-O1, Vette, Yuun


477 Rank 5 purple gifts will get you from 1-50 if you have all the influence perks unlocked.

This is a tiny fraction of the usual price! A high influence companion makes a huge difference duing solo play. Lana and Senya are valuable to level up because they are used so much during the storyline. Leveling Hexid is useful for bolstering new characters who haven't teamed up with their first companion. You should eventually have 8 companions at influence rank 20 or higher for crafting.

Enjoy!

FYI, Callii is now Caali. I'm assuming the name gets flipped automatically in the kin roster, but I figured I'd mention it to help prevent any possible confusion.

re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Satele Shan Server

Begeren Colony, Harbinger, and Bastion servers have now merged into one more powerful server, Satele Shan.
Welcome to your new home!

Hopefully you didn't lose any of your original names. If you did, they will show up in red on your character list. You'll be able to choose a new name. Character and Legacy renames are also on sale in the Cartel Market. Now enjoy double XP, double Command XP, and other bonuses through November 14.

Log in and play between November 8th and 27th to get a Mini Mogul NM-1 pet. Earn the Darth Hexid companion when you complete 3 PvE or PvP missions using Group Finder before November 27th.

I think I logged in all of my characters when you first mentioned this a few weeks back (though my return to activity is still pending), though I missed that it was a server-move. Hopefully the force will be with them and us during the move.

Since several of you have SWTOR characters, I thought you might want to know about this special event coming up.

* Earn the merciless Darth Hexid Companion when you complete three PvE or three PvP missions through Group Finder by the November 27th deadline!
* Plus, unlock the new ‘United Forces Group Recon’ achievement when you complete three PvE Group Finder activities and get the new ‘United Forces Warzone Recon’ achievement when you complete three PvP matches through Group Finder!
* Finally, once United Forces goes live, get double rewards: Double XP, Double Command XP, and much more through November 14!

NOTE: All achievements are unlocked in-game as earned. The Mini Mogul Mini-Pet and Darth Hexid Companion are delivered via in-game mail on November 28, 2017.

re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Satele Shan Server

Just a quick FYI -- get a free mount!

You can redeem your SWTOR New York Comic Con speeder early with the code NYCANTINA17.
* Go to https://account.swtor.com/user/codes
* Enter NYCANTINA17
* If you are already in game, close the game completely and restart it.
* Check your in game mail for the new Korrealis Viceroy speeder.

You may also get some other mounts and pets. Plus, you're more likely to keep your name in the upcoming server move.

re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Satele Shan Server

There is another huge round of upgrades coming to the game and one thing in particular you will want to be aware of.
As is the trend with MMOs these days, they are moving players to a smaller number of more powerful servers.
Characters will be given name priority based on subscription status, last login, and level.

TLDR: You don't have to subscribe, just log in each of your characters for the best chance at keeping your name.

A quick login by October 10 is best, but as long as you've done it by October 23, you should be okay.

If you're interested, you can find more info here: http://www.swtor.com/info/news/news-article/20171002-0


EDIT: Someone asked for the server destinations...

Begeren Colony, Bastion, and Harbinger are moving to Satele Shan.
Ebon Hawk, Jedi Covenant, Prophecy of the Five, Jung Ma, and Shadowlands are moving to Star Forge.
Progenitor, Red Eclipse, and Tomb of Freedon Nadd are moving to Darth Malgus (Europe/English).
Battle Meditation, Darth Nihilus, and Mantle of the Force are moving to The Leviathan (French).
Jar’Kai Sword, T3-M4, and Vanjervalis Chain are moving to Tulak Hord (German).

The LMB-friendly guilds will be moving to Satele Shan.

This weekend is a great time to stop by for a visit!

Celebrate EA Play to Give in the Galactic Defender Event

From Friday, June 2 through Sunday, June 4, jump into Star Wars: The Old Republic and join the Galactic Defender Event to celebrate EA’s Play to Give program.


Through Play to Give, we’re celebrating the importance of inclusion and play and the positive connections it makes for all the diverse players around the world. Help us celebrate what everyone in our galactic community contributes to our galaxy!

This weekend, team up with friends new and old in battles across the galaxy and get rewarded*:
All players who log in during the Play to Give campaign receive the new ‘PL-2G Defender’ Battle Droid mini-pet.
Plus, if players join with 1 or more friends in 1 million or more total group activities across the SWTOR galaxy, all players who log in during the Play to Give campaign will also receive the ‘Galactic Defender’ in-game title!

Rewards will be delivered via in-game mail by Wednesday, June 7.

Here are some tips to join a group:

    Ask anyone in guild chat to team up.
    Invite another player to be a part of your group by typing ‘/invite [name of player]’ or you can right click on the player’s name in chat and invite to group.
    Click the Group Finder icon on your minimap and queue for multiplayer battles.
    Join multiplayer battles at Level 70 through Galactic Command (press CTRL+G).


Here are some suggested group activities in the game to get you started:

Flashpoints – Band together with three trusted allies to undertake these dangerous story-driven missions
Uprisings – Team up with three other players in erupting fast-paced, action-packed battles at Level 70
Operations – It’s up to your team of 8 or 16 players to confront some of the powerful threats in the galaxy

Story missions – From class missions to story chapters in the latest Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion, help your friends level up as they make their way through the story
Heroic missions – You’ll want to team up with one or more friends to take on these group missions that are slightly more difficult than your standard world missions
….and more!

EA will donate $1 million to these charitable partners that are already making a difference for a better internet.

Is SWTOR a PVP game?

It has four different kinds of PVP play --
* Open world PVP in specific areas where you can choose which faction to fight for that day.
* Standard instance-based PVP on a variety of battlegrounds.
* Huttball, a sport sort of like wild space soccer.
* Galactic Starfighter where you build, crew, and upgrade your ship in space battles.

I wouldn't say that PVP is the biggest draw of SWTOR. IMHO, the best part of SWTOR is the roleplay, especially through the cinematic class stories. Even some of the large group missions have RP build into them. The player housing system (both planet-based and starship) is really amazing. Of course, Begeren Colony is primarily an RP server, while other servers are much stronger in PVP, so take that for what it's worth.

re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Satele Shan Server

I really miss horse racing in LOTRO and would love to get some pod racing started in SWTOR.
As you probably already know, racing is a player-hosted social event open to all classes and levels.

If you get a chance, please take a moment to reply positively to this post in the SWTOR.com suggestions forum about Pod Racing:

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=9292620

Thank you!
