Game Update 1.7

Well, it’s coming up and it looks like having multiple characters for it may be important. (You can read about it here and here) The Ilum event is happening still it seems. I…really hope you won’t get instant flagged in the area, but I know we probably will and it will mostly be PVP centered as that was kind of what they were hoping to do.

So I guess I should be prepared to be killed repeatedly by all those hardcore PVPers 🙁 Regardless, I will do my best to finish the event as always. Hopefully I can find some people willing to do it with me (and my boyfriend better get up early >_>).

Now, I’m just going to quote the bit about reputation systems for a second:

The Galactic Reputation system lets you earn Reputation points by completing missions for factions such as the Gree or the Voss, or for military divisions within the Republic and the Empire. This new system advances characters through six ranks of increasing prestige: “Outsider”, “Newcomer”, “Friend”, “Hero”, “Champion”, and “Legend”. Galactic Reputation is also tied to a character’s Legacy, so Reputation points and ranks are shared across all the characters within the same Legacy!

I do not have much experience with Reputation Systems, but if I recall correctly, you can do stuff for everyone, but sometimes it’ll lower reputation with other sections? Since it is legacy-based, I’m guessing you could, theoretically, get all 4 up to Legend as long as you focus on certain ones per character (IE: Voss + Republic with one while Gree + Empire on another)… if I understand it correctly. …I’ll just do my best 🙁

Anyway, it sounds like there will at least be armor sets and weapons through the event vendor which should make people happy. I know there was mention of a mount in a data dump a while back that may be gotten through this. And there’s a lot of pets currently MIA so we shall see.

I do hope the Gray Secant is an instance. Last thing we need is people fighting with eachother to kill the guy in the center x__x

Quick Highlight:

Look for opportunities to join this recurring event throughout the rest of the year. More details to come!

So yay for offering people lots of chances. I do wonder if it will just be for this year though.

Anyway, if things are still going as planned, this will probably happen at the end of January at the earliest @-@ Which is like 2 weeks.

    Also this seems like a new kind of content, so I’m guessing they probably will mix ups elements of Ops with PvP and so on. Just group up with peeps, it’ll be fun. Dying is part of the fun, there is nothing better than overcoming a challenge! 😀


    • Dying is never fun 😛 Everytime I die, I cry my eyes out. This is why I prefer puzzles. And I don’t know who to ask to group with or whatever.

      But yeah, some people are thinking they’ll remove the PVP elements, but I don’t think that’s what they planned to do. Just kind of paranoid.


  2. World pvp event yay….
    I think I’m gonna go to bed and cry till this event takes place, and my guess is like the last one there will be lots of items I want ><


      • Yeah would be nice.
        I know this is Bioware’s first MMO. But I don’t think it’s a good idea for PVP to stop people from seeing the events of something like a world event like this. Even they know players can be jerks, so you know on some servers there will be many campers who’s only goal is to prevent players from completing the world event quest. There are ways it like any click-able items we need are instant clicks and not a channeled 3 sec cast to stand there and have to open a box. If that’s the case we’re screwed. ><
