Star Wars: The Old Republic GU 5.5 ‘United Forces Foundation’ is live
Yep, 5.5 is live today with the promised prepwork for United Forces, the massive server merge update coming in November. This leg of the patch adjusts stronghold caps, stronghold cutscenes, and the commanding legacy perk that ups your command experience bonuses, plus the server interface is already seeing a spruce-up that may panic folks who don’t read the patch notes before they log in:
“In preparation for United Forces, the server select interface has been updated to only show five servers at a time. If a player needs to access a server which is not displayed, the scroll wheel will move through the list. Servers are displayed by last used, number of characters, and server name.”
There’s also a double rewards event running until the 17th, a whole bunch of class balancing tweaks, and bug fixes galore. Oh, and lucky you: The cash shop UI has improved. Yay!
