We are experiencing issues at the moment with updating web content, so I am going to post the notes here. Once we get the issue resolved I will make sure to get /patchnotes and the launcher are updated as well. Here they are in the meantime!

Still recovering from a shattering betrayal of the now-renegade droid, SCORPIO, the Outlanders Alliance must rally to defeat Arcanns forces in a desperate battle to determine the fate of the galaxy!
- New Alliance Alert: Shining in the Darkness! Something is fishy on Nar Shaddaa. Voss Mystic Sana-Raes most recent vision will send you to the Smugglers Moon in search of a mysterious Force user. Luckily Blizz is sure he knows exactly who she means and will be tagging along for the ride.
