This week on The Republic, SWTOR patch 2.0 hits the PTS, repair costs go up and Gary Gannon rage quits?
The SWTOR patch 2.0 has hit the PTS and has brought more than a few things with it. Gary, Justin and Larry discuss the fact that they finally have the ability to copy a character over to the PTS. In addition a new character booster helps new players who want to get to the higher level content quickly.
SWTOR patch 2.0 also brings a new operation with it titled Scum and Villany. No one is really surprised by this. Operation eternity vault gets a new nightmare mode version and new legacy achievements allow for unique titles and rewards.
Other additions have been made in the form of hard mode options for the flashpoints Hammer Station, Athiss, Mandalorian Raiders and Cademimu.
Other changes that have been made include adjustments to classes, the addition of a new priority mission terminal for all daily, weekly and ‘high-priority’ quests for flashpoints, group finder, warzones and other ‘repeatable content’.
Ilum’s back and it’s time to talk about it. Well.. Kind of… It turns out there may not be as much PvP to the PvP area as one would think. In fact, Gary would like to know exactly why there’s so much PvE in his PvP. And what’s with this exploding orb business that results in everyone standing politely in line to drop them off? No.. Really.. Larry has pictures. People stand in line in PvP now. Who knew?
Yeah.. It’s not exactly what we think of when we think PvP either. In fact, I think Gary’s head may explode.
You know what.. I’m just going to leave it here… You can watch Gary’s reaction to the whole Ilum thing in today’s episode.
All that and more. And, as always, if you missed last week’s episode, you can check it out here.
