NEW CHARACTERS
Bastila and Jolee have joined the Jedi on the Holotable! Bastila Shan is a powerful Jedi leader that gives her allies an incredible first-turn boost. The reclusive hermit, Jolee Bindo, is an extremely durable Jedi Healer who can revive all of his fallen Jedi allies and turn the tides of battle! For further details, check out the Character strategy and kit reveals below:

EVENTS
Legends of the Old Republic I
In Legends of the Old Republic 1 join forces with Bastila Shan. Bastila is a powerful Jedi who's unique leader ability Initiative gives Jedi a much needed survivability and damage boost in the early battle, and continues to grant Jedi incredible damage enhancing power whenever they gain Protection Up from any source. This event will yield enough shards of Bastila to unlock a 3-star version of her.
  • Event begins: July 12th
  • Level requirements for event: 20+
  • Forced Ally: Bastila Shan

Legends of the Old Republic II
Legends of the Old Republic 2 showcases Jolee Bindo, a Jedi Healer who can call other characters to assist, grants Protection Up to allies (synergizing with Bastila's leader ability) and can revive all defeated Jedi allies. This event will yield enough shards of Jolee to unlock a 3-star version of him.
  • Event begins: July 13th
  • Level requirements for event: 20+
  • Forced Ally: Jolee Bindo


GRAND MASTER’S TRAINING MYTHIC EVENT
A bug in the UI causes a reward bucket containing multiple mod shapes to display ALL of the bucket contents as "first time rewards", even though only a fixed quantity of things is ever awarded. We're going to fix this in a future update, but for now we're changing the rewards to be 2 circle mods from the sets the event awards. To be clear, nobody lost any rewards in the initial run of this event. Everyone who completed any of the tiers of the event received the correct rewards as intended by the event design.
  • Adjusted first-time rewards to be a circle mod from Defense and Critical Damage set (was: 2 random mods from either of those sets).
  • Added achievement for completing Tier 3 of this event.

NEW MOD CHALLENGE ART

If you want to learn more about upcoming mod changes, check them out in our Road Ahead Blog.


CHIMAERA EVENT UPDATED FOR 3V3
The Chimaera Legendary Event has been updated with the new 3v3 combat. We’ve modified the event difficulty to better suit Ships 2.0 and each tier has been reduced to a single encounter. Prepare your ships to battle Thrawn’s legendary Chimaera in this updated event!

A NOTE ABOUT JOLEE’S SPECIAL
Because Jolee's "Eh, You Do It" ability is not always a full-team heal--it only affects Jedi allies-- as such it does not interact with the Assist-call effect on General Kenobi's Leader Ability. Since the target restriction on Jolee's healing effect is somewhat uncommon, and we anticipate that many players will use him alongside General Kenobi, we felt that it was important to clarify this interaction up-front to minimize confusion.

KNOWN ISSUES
Updated: 7/12
  • We are aware of an issue with Prestigious Quest Fulcrum Agent Tier 3 “Infiltrate” not completing. We are working to resolve this quickly and should have it corrected by the next update.
  • FIXED Jolee Bindo's basic attack doesn't reduce cooldown when assisting or countering.
  • FIXED Bastila Shan’s Ability “Initiative” Zeta is not granting bonus Tenacity to Jedi Allies with Undispellable Protection Up.
  • FIXED Savage Opress is gaining Accuracy down every turn regardless of if an ally has this debuff for him to steal.
  • FIXED Bastila Shan’s Marquee Difficulty is too high for level band 20 – 29.
  • FIXED The text for Mod Challenge requirements is missing- The requirements section isn't displaying restrictions for entering battle but the Mods Challenges still have faction requirements to enter.
  • FIXED Challenges and Events screen Crash - Client crashes or hangs when entering the Challenges or Events Screen
  • FIXED Some players can't complete Finish all Daily Activities despite finshing all previous activities


FIXES

  • Young Han will now prioritize his "Upper Hand" ability over his basic ability while under AI control.

  • Boba Fetts Contract markers will no longer apply to AAT turrets.
  • Snow Trooper Elite's text has been changed to reflect current gameplay.
  • Clarified that Hera's "Play to Strengths" Dispel only applies to Phoenix units.
  • Geonosian Soldier's basic ability buff will now be affected by abilities which count buffs.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent Nightsister Acolyte's double attack from calling two Assists with Talzin's Leader ability if she Revives two allies.
  • Sabine's Armor Shred now shows the number of times it's been applied to a unit.
  • Sith Triumvirate Nihilus will no longer gain Critical Damage Up buff when attacking a Bounty Hunter with his basic attack.

  • Updated "Unlock Daily Activities" quest to unlock at level 3.
