Star Wars: The Old Republic Game Update 1.1.5, now live on the game servers, includes several updates to Operations and Ilum World PVP, extensive updates to items and a new and improved Darth title.
Game Update 1.1.5
Game Update 1.1.5: Sith Classes
Moving while channeling an ability, such as Force Lightning, will no longer cancel the global cooldown. This bug has been previously exploited to deal more damage than intended.
Star Wars: The Old Republic has been updated to display the correct title for “Darth” in French. Thus, any French Darth shall henceforth be recognized as Le Sith Royale.
Game Update 1.1.5: Flashpoints and Operations
Operations updates in Game Update 1.1.5 are largely limited to improving current content. The Master Looter loot distribution setting has been updated and should now drop the correct amount of loot from Bosses in Operations. Furthermore, the “Duel of the Fates” and “Penalty of Destiny” effects in Eternity Vault should now properly be removed when the Infernal Council encounter resets.
Game Update 1.1.5: Ilum World PVP
In an attempt to improve Ilum performance, the two large defense turrets outside each base on the Western Shelf no longer fire their lasers into the air. (Ed. Note: Yeah, I’m still recovering from this one.)
Kill credit is now granted to healers in Warzones when a healed player scores a kill. Battlemaster and Champion Commendations can now be purchased with Warzone and Mercenary Commendations from the PVP Vendor. Furthermore, Valor gained from Warzones has been increased.
Game Update 1.1.5: Extensive Items Update
Patch 1.1.5 contains several updates and modifications to items currently in the game. New high-level black-yellow color crystals are available for purchase from the Pre-Order Vendors on the Imperial and Republic Fleets. The price on several high end speeder models has been temporarily reduced. The Imperial and Republic Fleets feature a vendor carrying a variety of previously unavailable endgame crystals. Additionally, current requirements pertaining to Dark/Light alignment present on some color crystals has been removed. The reduction in price and the new endgame crystal vendors are expected to last until SWTOR Game Update 1.2.
Current patch notes are available at swtor.com.
Game Update 1.1.4
Game Update 1.1.4: Sith Classes and Combat
Using abilities with indirect targeting (such as area of effect abilities) will no longer cause players to be flagged for PvP if a PvP-flagged player from the opposing faction is within the ability’s range, and the ability will have no effect on the PvP-flagged player.
Game Update 1.1.4: PvP and Warzones
This patch particularly addresses the Warzone Queue exploit which allowed players to bring additional players into warzones. According to the patch notes, specific circumstances may still lead to imbalance, however these imbalances can no longer be trigger by intentional player actions.
The Eastern Turret in the Alderaan Civil War Warzone no longer fires twice “under some circumstances” when it is captured by Imperials. What? /tinfoil hat
The current patch features several updated to UI and various bug fixes. Check Game Update 1.1.4 Notes for details.
Game Update 1.1.3
Game Update 1.1.3: Sith Classes and Combat
Surge rating has been re-balanced. It now reaches diminishing returns the same way as other damage ratings, and its per point damage contribution has been reduced by approximately 10%.
Game Update 1.1.3: Flashpoints and Operations
In Game Updated 1.1.3 conversations rewards, such as Social and Alignment points and Companion Affection, are gained more consistently in Hard Mode Flashpoints.
A few irritating Flashpoint and Operations bugs are also squished in Game Update 1.1.3. Players are no longer blocked from re-entering the Boarding Party Flashpoint in Hard Mode after being defeated. In some circumstances, whipping to Jorland caused a bug that prevented players from rejoining and completing the Flashpoint.
Updates to loot drops include the Expulsor Droid in “Kaon Under Siege” dropping the correct loot and the chest in “Karagga’s Palace” 8-man Nightmare Mode properly spawning following the demise of Karagga.
Game Update 1.1.3: PvP
Players will now properly receive mission credit for warzone wins when the first player to enter a Warzone leaves before the match ends and Players are now notified when they kill a player Ilum but do not receive credit due to rate limits. Furthermore, the bomb door collision bug in the Voidstar Warzone has been eliminated.
