The Casual SWTORian: Community Q&A and PvP Videos

The Casual SWTORian is dedicated each week to those who don’t have the time to immerse themselves in game developments but instead want a very simple roundup of things happening and stuff on the horizon. If you like what you read, tell our casual guru Ken.

Another week of subscription time passed, another week of Bioware info. “What’s new?” you ask, well let me tell you. Bioware released 4 hours worth of guild summit videos and also unleashed the new PVP video on the world. These, combined with a focus on patch 1.2 left me wondering, not much post-1.2 info has been released lately, but that’s not for me to dwell on.

  • Giolon: I read in patch notes that sniper rifles will no longer drop for Republic players – what about Risha and Zenith? These companions use sniper rifles. How are we supposed to gear them up if sniper rifles no longer drop for Republic players?

David Hunt: There are still several ways to get sniper rifles for Republic players – this change primarily removed them from boss drops. Sniper rifles can still be crafted, purchased from vendors, and modded. And with Game Update 1.2, weapons that drop more frequently on one side can always be mailed across from the other side with legacy characters.

  • Babouine: Will you guys add new stuff to the VIP area on the Fleets?

Daniel Erickson (Lead Game Designer): We will definitely be adding new items to the VIP areas on the fleets in the future, but we can’t give you an exact estimate on when just yet.

  • Xsmspiffs: Could we get an option to allow others to see the Guild Ledger, and show the Guildmaster on it?

Damion Schubert (Principal Lead Systems Designer): The Guildmaster not showing will be corrected in Game Update 1.2. We will eventually allow the Guildmaster to set who can see the guild ledger via permissions – this will not make 1.2, but is definitely coming in a future update.

I’d also like to give a shout out to Trooper Trek who deserves your respect and to the SWTOR Gamers of Oceania who are awesome. As always, If you feel I missed anything feel free to comment below or you can start a religious debate – your choice.
