Guides Created by Elders Guild Members

by Celsfalia, 2 days ago

Greetings Elders,

Many of our members have created original guides, compilations, and links on various parts of Star Wars the Old Republic. Hollenhund, for example, is just one member that posts links to patch notes, discussions, and news. 

Following is a list of the original member contributions. While some are from previous updates, they all contain very valuable information. Please let me know if I have missed any or if you have created a new one!

The most recent are videos created by Nessarose showing how to solo hardmode Darth Ikoral (the final boss of Red Reaper) with a Shadow and how to quickly run through Hammer Station in veteran mode. There are some who repeatedly solo these flashpoints on a sheathed character to very quickly gain the veteran and hard mode  flashpoints. 

May the Force be with you!

Guild Calendar and Game Updates

by Celsfalia, 33 days ago

Hello Elders,

At the end of this note is an updated calendar for guild conquest. Both factions are set to Alderaan this week at the special recommendation and request of certain members. Congratulations to all who participated last week. We scored 9th place on the board! I enjoy conquest for the social aspects, for the rewards, and because it makes me do a variety of in game activities that I might now other wise do. I look forward to the changes to conquest early next year. I remain hopeful that the Star Fortresses will be added to conquest as well!

This is always my source calendar for the graph below: SWTOR Calendar.

Bioware published the new patch notes today: Patch Notes 5.5

This is the schedule of autumn updates from Bioware:

October 10, 2017 – Game Update 5.5 – United Forces Foundation – in addition to a variety of Quality of Life (QoL) improvements, this update includes the underlying foundational structural changes needed to support United Forces.

October 24, 2017 – United Forces Formation – on this day, the game will be unavailable for an extended time as we’ll be setting up the formation of the campaign, replacing existing hardware and software with all the new Game Servers and supporting components. It will also include additional changes needed to support the deployment of the United Forces update.

November 8, 2017 – United Forces Update is rolled out and everyone moves to five new servers with new names as follows: Two servers in North America and three servers in Europe – one each of English, French, and German. You can expect extended downtime as we make the final improvements to the Server environments. Check the blog and FAQs to discover our new Server names.

November 28, 2017 – Game Update 5.6 – A Traitor Among the Chiss becomes available and includes something new for everyone!

May the Force be with you!

Plunder of Iokath

by Celsfalia, 40 days ago

 Greetings Elders!

The new conquest Plunder of Iokath is again this week’s conquest event. The planet itself is the only option available for invasion. Both Elders of the Republic and Elders of the Sith are set to invade Iokath and the guildships are in orbit above the planet providing orbital support. Don't worry, as you can still use the guild summons option to anywhere in the galaxy! Be sure to look out the bridge window for a very interesting view! 

The table I created in the calendar posting has links to both conquest events and conquest objectives, however there was no complete list online for Iokath, until now. Let me know if anything is missing or incorrect. Note that Valley of the Machine Gods is the daily operation this Saturday. Here is a link to all the other planets: Conquest. This is a link to a fun group activity that has conquest rewards as well: Commanders

May the Force be with you!

End of Summer Calendar

by Celsfalia, 55 days ago

Greetings Elders!

 Below is the upcoming SWTOR calendar. This is the list of the upcoming in-game events, as well as what I recommend we conquer that week in the "Guild Conquest" column. This is subject to change, if need be. I made these choices based on what looks must fun and provides the most conquest bonus points. The texts of two of the columns are hyperlinked. "Special Events" links to a guide and "Conquest Events" links to the requirements for that week's conquest. 

Conquest is a fun way to make your level or make cxp progression even more enjoyable, draw you into the living and ongoing in-game story, and earn great rewards besides. You can do conquest on multiple characters and earn personal rewards on them all. If all the points in the guild combined add up to place us in the top 10 overall, we get on more rewards on each character that reached the conquest point goal. This the Elders of the Republic have accomplished several times. 

Some special upcoming in-game events can be found here
