New Cartel Market Items and Decorations


Things of Note

  • Ranos is mentioned to be rewarded from the Eternal level (fixed the Legendary tier typo from PTS #12)
  • A few new CM items like the Command Boost, a new Life Day bundle, and new decorations.
  • They also gave out a bunch more abilities to enemies from the new chapters and Uprisings and changed a few itemizations for some endgame gear.
  • Several class changes:
    • Operative / Scoundrel Utility that causes Backstab / Backblast and the like to knockdown normal enemies and root players no longer interrupts players.
    • Gave Operative and Snipers back their interrupt. (Was accidentally removed due to the removal of base classes. Republic side was unaffected)
    • Madness / Balance new passive on Death Field / FiB now mentions that it hits the target and enemies around it for additional damage. Before, it mentioned that it only hit the enemies around the target.
SPOILER: Qyzen Fess and his Trandoshan crew make an appearance within the KotET storyline.
