Star Wars: The Old Republic’s amplifier system is a relatively new addition to the game, having been introduced back in 2019 with the Onslaught expansion. BioWare’s apparently decided that there needs to be some work done on the system, which is why it’s about to roll out a whole bunch of amplifier changes with next week’s Update 6.2.1.
“On the amplifier recalibration window, if your amplifier is premium (green) or higher (blue, purple, or gold) you will have a new button at the bottom left to lock the quality,” the studio explained. “Clicking this lock will ‘lock’ the quality of your current amplifier, which then guarantees any future recalibrations will grant amplifiers of that quality or higher. Taking advantage of this new feature will increase the credit cost of any future recalibrations for that specific amplifier, depending on the selected quality.”
