Star Wars: The Old Republic outlines the plans for upcoming reveals surrounding the Onslaught expansion

Gotta protect that shoulder.

A lot of stuff is arriving in Star Wars: The Old Republic with its next expansion, Onslaught. There’s a new playable race (Nautolans), two new planets (Onderon and Mek-sha), new Tactical gear, new abilities for classes… it’s pretty far-reaching, that’s the point. And all of the above features deserve a full write-up on the official site, which community manager Daniel Steed is hard at work producing. He’s even produced a full rundown of all the topics up for discussion so that players can see what’s in progress and what can be expected in the future.

In addition to all of the topics already mentioned, a tactical report on Dantooine and a rundown of the new recurring Pirate Incursion event are in the pipeline, along with a summary of the story players can expect going in. Player feedback is also welcome, with the caveat that some of these topics may wind up expanding or being merged as work continues. Still, if the pile of stuff being added with the expansion looks overwhelming, at least you know that a digest of what you need to know is on the way.

I really wish we would get actual reveals, instead of reveal of potential reveals and roadmap to potential roadmap. Then again, I guess it’s hard to blame the Bioware grunts. By now, they are probably living in persistent uncertainty of one day arriving at work and finding out that EA has boarded up the building and they are out of a job.

“player feedback is welcome as usual” I’ll admit that part gave me a chuckle :)

Hey, I’m sure it is welcome. They didn’t say they were going to ACT on it, right?

I’m not convinced sadly :)

Plus part of the problem is when they DO act on things lol. I’ve been with the game since Beta and even the times they did listen to the community when it comes to changes and additions (Free Roam space flight, Guild flagships etc..) they totally ignored the way in which people were asking for them and made them PVP things…it blows the mind how out of touch and off base they have been over the years with the communities wants and needs.

They are like only “half” listening in so much as they get the gist of what people are saying fundamentally but didn’t listen enough to understand the SPECIFICS and so constantly get it wrong time and again lol

And there are SO MANY examples of when they didn’t listen and should have over the years and the game has clearly suffered for it as most of the community left..

I am retrying it in an easy going slow way. I am having fun so far, but I still want my sandboxes too

Dunno why but I assumed this game was on its last legs . Obviously not .

Why do I find myself wishing for a Vanilla SWTOR?

I guess that’s a result of playing a hybrid DPS/Tank at launch. I actually just went back to visit, but the fact that the current best gear seems to be stuck behind a faction/resource grind and isn’t awarded by the toughest content just feels wrong.

Hopefully one day you will be able to earn relevant gear through PvP, Operations, Or Flashpoints.

You get the currency to buy the best gear from doing PvP and Operations. The rep grid sucks but isn’t long especially with multiple maxed characters. It’s a simple token system that you earn from doing most things in the game at this point.
