The Rakghoul plague has come to an end with Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s latest patch 1.2.1.
On top of that major change we also see some minor quality-of-life changes for players and specifically the Sniper and Gunslinger advanced classes.
Just as it began, the Rakghoul plague live event ended without a word.
But fear not, space traveler; Lead Designer Daniel Erickson recently told fansite Mos Eisley Radio that even though this might be the last time we see this particular event, this would not be the last live event we see for SWTOR. In fact, Erickson said that there is a whole team specifically dedicated to creating live events.
In addition to “curing” the Rakghoul plague, patch 1.2.1 increased the damage output of a handful of the Gunslinger and Sniper abilities. Unfortunately, this change does not help the recently nerfed Operative and Scoundrel.
