A mutated queen awaits Star Wars: The Old Republic players

Think you’ve discovered everything there is about Ossus in Star Wars: The Old Republic? You’re in for a bit of a shock, then, because something dark and sinister is stirring underneath the planet’s surface.

Right now, the game is testing Game Update 5.10.1. In it there is a new lair called The Hive of the Mountain Queen, in which is a five-star bed-and-breakfast and a non-stop marathon of Star Wars themes. If you happen to find an actual Mutated Geonosian Queen, then you’ve obviously taken a wrong turn somewhere.

This boss battle comes with a few options: It can be attempted with either eight or 16 players and on story and veteran difficulty levels. If you want to check it out, you can log on to the public test server to give it a go.

If “In the Hall of the Mountain King” doesn’t play through this entire dungeon, I will be very disappointed.

Its not a dungeon, it a single boss encounter raid. But I like your idea. Lol.

Hmm. Can I log into the public test server without a sub?

Sadly no, the PTS is only for Subscribers. I can understand not letting free-to-play players in, but they should let Preferred Status Players in. If you don’t know already. Preferred Status Players are players that have subscribed before, but aren’t currently subscribed. For being previously subscribed, Preferred Status Players get perks that free-to-players don’t get. But they don’t get all the perks that a subscriber gets.

I was a long time player, but my understanding is that they got rid of preferred status. I’ll go poke around to see if I have it.

But yeah, won’t help with the PTS. Oh well. They should consider it as a preferred perk as you mention. It could bring players back to sub status or at least back to the game.

I still play and Preferred is still around and I’m currently Preferred as well. Due to the fact that there has been no reason to subscribe since December 2016. All post-Knights of the Eternal Throne Expansion (Level 70) main story content has been free to everyone who has completed KotET. Regardless if you are currently subscribed or currently unsubscribed as a Preferred Status Player. All that matters is that you subscribed either back in December 2016 or some time after for at least one month. Which is what I did. Also I’ve been playing off and on since launch December 2011. I came back this past December 2018 for the new free story update, Jedi Under Siege on the new planet Ossus. After taking a break from June 208 to December 2018.
