Hi Holotable Heroes!
We’re kicking off the 15th anniversary of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic with the following Content Release today, 7/11/18.

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.


EARLY GAME QUEST REWARD REMOVAL
As mentioned earlier this week, the adjustments to early Quest rewards will take effect with the update today. To read more about these these changes and why we are making them, check out this post.

NEW MOD CHALLENGE ART
In preparation for our exciting upcoming mod changes, you will see some new art featured in mod challenges.
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
  • 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.


FIXES
  • Fixed an issue where Biggs Darklighter’s “Adrenaline Rush" does not activate when Biggs takes damage from Emperor's Palpatine's "Crackling Doom"
  • Young Han will now prioritize his "Upper Hand" ability over his basic ability while under AI control.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Anakin's Basic ability to apply Healing and Buff Immunity after dealing damage (preventing them from blocking healing or buffs triggered by the attack itself.)
  • 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.
  • "Fleet Battles" quest now rewards Ship Building Materials.
  • Updated "Unlock Daily Activities" quest to unlock at level 3.
  • Updated "Guild Benefactor" Quest by removing task that required players damage the Rancor and updating text for the task that required player do the Pit Raid.
  • Quest text updated to correct an error where Tier IV was incorrectly displaying as Tier VI.

  • Even if the plural of Jedi was Jedis, which it's not, Jedi's would still be wrong. How hard is it for people to realize that possessive =/= plural?
  • Well, at least Bossk isn't on a ship hard node. I guess that's something to be thankful for.

    Not that hard, but mistakes happen. Thanks for pointing that out.

    @CG_Leviathan, will you guys be fixing GM Yoda gr12+ ? I hope so

  • @CG_Leviathan @CG_Carrie 2 more toons and no ability mat packs? Seriously? Cmon

    @CG_Leviathan will Nihilus, Traya, Sion and HK be getting that Old Republic tag? Or is light sight based, rather than era based?
  • Is there any way for us to know what the difficulty level will be for the Chimaera Event? Will it require higher levels than in Ships 1.0? I’m asking because the ship challenges were more difficult after 2.0.
  • When I saw there was a bug fix to triumvirate Nihilus, I got so excited....

    Then I realized my hope was misplaced.
    To get a refund:

    Always email. That way when you're confronted by the script reading garbage water people they employ refusing to help you, you can use a screenshot of the emails to show Google or Apple that the developer is failing at customer support, nearly guaranteeing you a refund.

    You always want a paper trail when dealing with useless **** s.

    Ugh. Marquee events and Bossk goes to a single hard node. It’s like CG asks themselves, “how can we disappoint the playerbase today?”

    Not surprised but still disappointed. I love this game and want to keep playing, but this is getting predictably sad.

    Yes, this is the method they laid out a while back. It sucks but at this point it shouldn't be disappointing anymore. Just more of the same.

    I keep hoping for cantina nodes at this point but expect nothing more than a hard node. Actually surprised they didnt start using the ship nodes.
  • Going into Events causes a never end spinning loading screen now, glad there are no events going on right now

    Jolee looked quite useless as is from the youtuber videos that got posted today. Do you really need to make such an underwhelming toon be even worse with his unique heal not triggering on Kenobi lead ?
  • Got a client restart, but no 2 new charachters

    Great timing on the release, I have him at 96/100 today as of right before the client restart! :joy:

    Also, spinning wheel locked client trying to open challenges right after the client restart. Coincidence? Likely not. Never happened in the past 2+ years for me..

    Check events. Marquee starts in like 8 hours.

  • Hey, when/who was the last marquee to go to a cantina node?
  • well there are some nice fixes in that patch though
    sabines armor shred
    greedo
    i guess its time to start farming all those old hardnodes as long as there are multiple ones
    imagine they take away one of lobots nodes
    having old chars become 6 month farms after 1 or 2 years is kinda disturbing
  • @CG_Leviathan @CG_SBCrumb -- some people are getting the yoda achievement, some aren't (and it's not showing up in the achievements panel as uncompleted either)

    So since the client update I cannot load stores, events, etc. Game freezes or just won't load the different areas. Anyone else?

    Same for me
  • So the update broke the game, this is my shocked face :|
  • Nothing about the sith raid or ships? Moving right along.
  • @CG_Leviathan @CG_SBCrumb can't claim the daily for completing all dailies (omega and prize box). I haven't seen the new daily for completing ship battles.
