Yavin PvP Map Preview

A look at the work in progress Yavin PvP map.

With the data from 4.0 we can see a lot of work being done on a Yavin pvp map. The area itself doesn't appear to be included so we can't show you the map itself.

Please keep in mind this map is very much a WIP and will probably change significantly before live. This is my own interpretation of the data and it may actually be vastly different. It could also be scrapped and never make it to live.


  • Is most likely 8v8.
  • Probably won't be released in 4.0, but a lot of work has been done on it so possibly 4.1 but don't hold your breath.
  • Has a VIP, the VIP gets special abilities on a temporary quickbar.
  • Has a game mode chooser that allows someone to choose Bounty or VIP mode. Possibly a CTF mode to but this might just be VIP mode.
  • Has 5 objectives to capture
  • Capturing control points is a six second cast.
  • Picking up Artifacts is a six second channel. Makes you the VIP?
  • Both teams have their own artifact pick up points.
  • Capture point ownership is lost when the VIP uses the extraction point.
  • Capture points can be unlocked, but unsure as to how.
  • Not much on Bounty mode. 1 point for accomplishing the bounty.


  • The goal of the VIP is to get to an extraction point when your team controls at least two capture points
  • You can volunteer to be the VIP at random.
  • VIP moves at a reduced speed, has more health, cannot be stunned or knocked back and take reduced healing.
  • When defeated the VIP kneels down for 15 seconds and can not do anything, closest player gets the artifact they are carrying. Probably becomes the new VIP too?
  • Using the extraction point is an eight second cast.

VIP Abilities

These abilities are available to the VIP, regardless of class. All damage is god damage, so can not be mitigated (like Huttball fire traps)

  • VIP - Barrier


    Projects a Barrier around you, granting immunity to all control, damage, and negative effects while channeled. This ability does not respect the global cooldown and can be used while controlled. While you are protected by Barrier charges will build up and grant Enduring Bastion, a shield that absorbs an amount of damage based off the charges that are present when Force Barrier ended. Enduring Bastion also grants immunity to interrupts.
  • VIP - Heat Laser


    Channels a cone of heat that deals 8% of target's health as damage within a 35-meter cone in front of you over 3 seconds.
  • VIP - Advanced Targeting Field


    Emits an Advanced Targeting Field that increases the damage of up to 7 allies within 10 meters for 15 seconds.
  • VIP - Nuke 'em from Orbit


    It's the only way to be sure. Calls in support from orbiting warships, dealing 8% of the target's health as damage over 12 seconds to up to 8 enemies within 10 meters of the targeted area.
  • VIP - Big Blast


    Deals 10% of target's max health as damage. Uses a really neato scatter gun. BA BLAM!
  • VIP - Encourage


    The VIP barks orders and encourages a teammate by giving them a movement speed increase
  • VIP - Energy Cloak


    Increases damage reduction by 75% for 20 seconds.
  • VIP - Exploding Pocket Sand


    Stuns the target for 5 seconds and grants you a large movement speed increase for 2 seconds.
  • VIP - Massive Explosion


    Blasts 8 nearby enemies for <<1>> damage and knocks them away. Targets hit by this have their movement slowed by 50% for 5 seconds.

    This looks like it could be 35% of the targets health?
  • VIP - Rapid Bracer Missle


    Fires a missile quickly, causing 7.5% of the target's max health in damage.
