- In-Depth Changes
- "Curative Agent" utility for Operatives is fixed.
- Uprisings were added to Conquest.
- Makeb Uprisings appear to work similar to escorting a payload in Overwatch.
- All relics can be used in PvP now.
- CXP boxes have been renamed from Very Small/Small/Medium to Common/Uncommon/Rare.
- Improved Command Experience I through V character perks have been added. Each one "increases the amount of command experience obtained from all content by 2%. This increase is cumulative with previous increases to command experience. This does not affect cxp earned through disintegration." This should give a 10% command experience total with all five purchased. Purchase costs:
- I - 100,000 credits
- II - 300,000 credits
- III - 600,000 credits
- IV - 1,000,000 credits
- V - 1,500,000 credits
- Plasma Probe (Engineering Sniper) radius has increased from 5 meters to 8 meters.
- Some fixes for Carnage Marauder/Combat Sentinel, Deception+Hatred Assassins/Infiltration+Serenity Shadows, and Rage Juggernauts/Focus Guardians.
- Removal of the 30% AoE Damage Reduction Utility for Assassins/Shadows, replaced with 30% Damage Reduction while stunned only.
- Shield Tech Powertech's Kolto Overload heals for 2% every second while above 35% HP (was previously 40%).
- Operatives now get two stacks of their probe on a new target after they use their aggro dump (before it would consume 1 stack if they used their probe on a target).
See our 5.1 Gearing Guide for a full breakdown of the gearing changes in 5.1.
