It’s patch day for Star Wars The Old Republic! BioWare is patching in 5.10.2: Heralds of Victory today, complete with the guild heraldry system it previously teased, the preview window improvements, class and mission tweaks, and a double experience event planned for next week.dev blog all about the guild heraldry system, explaining how players will layer symbols and backgrounds to customize their banners. This is not a new concept; I can recall doing this as long ago as Dark Age of Camelot. But it’s still nice to see.
“Guild Heraldry helps Guilds by adding a route of customization to further form their own identity,” says BioWare. “Guilds can choose from a selection of Symbols and Backgrounds, along with the full hex code color spectrum, to create a personalized banner to rally behind. These Heraldries are then available to be seen both within a Guild and outside of it. […] All Symbols and Backgrounds that come with the launch of Guild Heraldry are immediately available to Guilds of any size or level.”
The servers are expected to be back up by noon EDT.
