Highlights

Danger lurks in the shadows of the Republic and the Empire: fanatical infiltrators hidden in the ranks of both governments and militaries, all dedicated to the cause of a man long thought dead. He has been both Jedi and Sith, both conqueror and savior. He is Revan—and he will stop at nothing to complete the galaxy-changing mission he began more than three hundred years ago…

Shadow of Revan*

*Shadow of Revan content is only available to players who pre-ordered the Shadow of Revan Digital Expansion before November 2nd, 2014. All other players who have purchased the Shadow of Revan Digital Expansion will be able to access the content on December 9th, 2014.

Highlights

New Feature: Disciplines! Disciplines is a major overhaul to the class system. At its very core, the Disciplines System replaces the current Skill Tree system while offering a wider array of impactful Utility choices to expand their character and the ability for a character's identity to surface much earlier in the level path. The Disciplines System changes the way we think about and develop the classes themselves, which translates into a more balanced game and the capacity to expand levels and abilities more often. We're excited about this system and the possibilities it unlocks for the future.

For a full description of what Disciplines is, please see our Dev Blog.

Single-Player Forged Alliances: Prelude to Shadow of Revan! Players who haven't completed the Forged Alliances story arc can find the new Mission "Prelude to Shadow of Revan" on their ship. This Mission provides the necessary Fleet Passes to move through Parts 1-3 of the epic Forged Alliances story. Use the provided Fleet Pass to be taken directly to T3-G2 or A7-M1 on your faction's Fleet to begin your journey.

While on the Mission "Prelude to Shadow of Revan," players also have access to the Solo Modes of the Forged Alliances Flashpoints when the chain calls for them to be completed.

New GUI Element: Effect Procs! A new visualization system called Effect Procs is now live! This system plays an eye-catching visual effect around hotbar buttons when the ability in that button has been "powered up" by another effect.

Ranked Arena Season 3 has come to a conclusion! Congratulations to all the reward winners! In preparation for Season 4, Ranked stats have been reset and the Leaderboard for Season 2 has been archived.

Bounty Contract Week Returns! Hunt wanted criminals in this returning event. The event begins December 9th at 4 AM PST/12:00 GMT and ends December 16th at 4 AM PST/12:00 GMT.

Classes + Combat

Introduction + Synopsis

Classes + Combat

While the Disciplines System is the major cornerstone of the changes coming to Classes and Combat (for more on the Discipline system, see our Dev Blog), we have also made adjustments outside of Disciplines that change combat on a global scale:

  • All classes now do less damage overall at Level 55 and gain that damage back as they get closer to 60.
  • Enemies Level 50 and below are now less difficult to defeat.
  • Operation-wide abilities have been given to every Advanced Class.
  • Player Damage over Time abilities (DoTs) can no longer be cleansed by another Player. They can, however, still be Purged by abilities such as Resilience/Force Shroud. DoTs inflicted by Enemy NPCs can still be Cleansed and Purged.
  • Most player-applied Crowd Control (CC) abilities can now be cleansed by another Player.
  • The cooldowns of abilities that Cleanse has been increased.
  • Abilities that Interrupt now have longer cooldowns.
  • Channeled abilities are no longer effected by pushback, but can still be stopped by Interrupts or Stuns.
  • Channeled abilities now consume resources every time the Ability deals - or would deal – damage or healing, and does not have an upfront resource cost.
  • All Accuracy-increasing abilities have been removed.
  • Accuracy Rating grants more Accuracy per point.
  • Tank classes in the appropriate Tank stance get 10% Accuracy at the cost of a decrease in damage dealt.
  • Alacrity has been reworked, and now speeds up Ability Activation, Global Cooldown, Resource Regeneration, DoTs (the speed that damage is dealt as well as the duration), and reduces Internal Cooldowns on certain passive abilities.
  • Many new Interface options, including Effect Procs, moveable Player Buffs/Debuffs, and Effect Highlighting. See the GUI Section for more details.
  • Most player-activated abilities now have a 270 degree Line of Sight (up from 180).
  • All AoE healing abilities now prioritize the target with the lowest health percentage first.

Combat Change Philosophy

Classes + Combat

Leading up to 3.0, we knew we wanted to make changes to how we handled customization and choice, as we felt like the tree-based Skill System lead to many problems, including the loss of class identity, uneven power gains, and overly complex rotations. While we wanted to maintain the feeling of progression and gain that this system provided during the leveling process, we wanted to move past the tree-based system. This lead to the introduction of Disciplines, which you can read all about here. Given this chance to reimagine how combat and classes work in The Old Republic, there were also some changes we wanted to make on a more global scale in order to address some concerns and feedback.

Damage + Health
Towards the end of the 2.0 patch cycle, classes began to exceed the baseline damage values that we intended. In order to get back to where we wanted the damage output to be, we are lowering the damage output across the board. Players at level 55 will find that their damage has dropped, while players at level 60 end up having about the same amount of damage output that they did pre-3.0 at 55.

In a similar fashion, we weren't happy with how long it took to level from 1 to 55 in the pre-3.0 game. In order to speed up the low-level game, all enemies from level 50 and lower are no longer as tough, and now die faster.

Operation-Wide Abilities
With the release of Game Update 3.0, Operation-wide abilities have been given to every Advanced Class. This change was made in order to address the idea that you had to have a Sentinel/Marauder in your Operations group in order to be at the best that you could be. These new abilities stack with each other, but not with themselves, and include defensive and offensive abilities. These abilities also ensure that any Operation group composition is well equipped to tackle what's ahead of them, even if they don't have a specific class available.

DoTs, Interrupts, and Channels
In order to make Damage-over-Time Disciplines more viable in Warzones and Warzone Arenas, player DoTs can no longer be cleansed. They can, however, be purged by self-targeted abilities such as Force Shroud/Resilience. DoTs inflicted by Enemy NPCs can still be both cleansed and purged. In order to make cleansing abilities more viable after losing a major component of its functionality, cleanses can now be used to remove Crowd Control (CC) abilities, such as stuns and roots.

Interrupts now have a longer cooldown, as we want players making informed, tactical choices when choosing what to interrupt instead of indiscriminately interrupting everything possible.

Channeled abilities now cost resources at the intervals when damage or healing would be dealt, instead of costing the full amount at activation. This is mostly a quality of life change, as players would spend a large chunk of resources and get interrupted, pushed backed, stunned, etc. and lose those resources. Additionally, channeled abilities can no longer be pushed back. They can, however, still be interrupted with interrupting abilities and stuns.

Stat Changes
Accuracy skills have been removed from the game, and Accuracy is now a gearing consideration only. Additionally, Accuracy Rating now gives more Accuracy per point. Tank Classes now gain 10% Accuracy for being in the appropriate "Tank Stance," but lose some damage. This change was made in response to their being no counter-play to Taunts in PvP – it was simply a damage reduction with no recourse for those afflicted by it.

Alacrity now speeds up ability activation, speeds up global cooldowns, resource regeneration, Duration of DoTs (DoTs deal the same amount of damage, but faster), and reduces internal cooldowns. This change was to make Alacrity more useful as it now always makes you faster, and eliminates situations where Alacrity could actually be disruptive to your rotation or resources.

Bolster
Augments now interact with the Bolster system. Like other slots, Players with low level (or no) Augments will be given some stat compensation to bring them up to a more competitive level. Higher rating Augments still have an advantage over these Augment slots.

Due to Augments now being handled inside the Bolster system, the power gap between the Bolstered level of stats and the high end PvP gear (disregarding any Augments attached) has been increased slightly. The "worst case" to "best case" power gap remains the same.

Class Changes

Classes + Combat

Jedi Knight/Sith Warrior
Jedi Knights and Sith Warriors will notice that Riposte/Retaliation is now specific to the Guardian and Juggernaut Advanced Classes instead of being an ability that all Knights and Warriors get. This change was made due to Sentinel and Marauder Disciplines not supporting the effective use of Riposte and, barring fringe cases, Riposte was a poor use of Focus/Rage. Guardians and Juggernauts will find that the new Riposte is part of the Global Cooldown, deals more damage and consumes less Focus/Rage than Slash/Vicious Slash. Sentinels and Marauders will also notice that Crippling Throw/Deadly Throw has been removed, but the healing received debuff it applied has been added to Crippling Slash. For further changes, see below:

Sentinel and Marauder
Guardian and Juggernaut

Jedi Consular/Sith Inquisitor
The most substantial Base Class change for Jedi Consulars and Sith Inquisitors is that Force Potency/Recklessness now affected numerous channeled abilities instead of just one. Sages and Sorcerers will find that a few abilities that used to go to all Shadows and Sages have been moved into specific Disciplines, but Rejuvenation/Resurgence is now available to all. Shadows and Assassins have received a few quality of life improvements, such as Force Cloak no longer inhibiting healing while active. Additionally, Whirling Blow/Lacerate has been adjusted in order to make it more viable in a rotation. For further changes, see below:

Shadow and Assassin
Sage and Sorcerer

Smuggler/Imperial Agent
The Smuggler and Imperial Agent Base Classes have been refined, and a few abilities have been moved out of the Base Class and into appropriate Disciplines. Gunslingers and Snipers will likely first notice that being in cover is no longer a requirement for many of the abilities that previously required it, but also that being in cover is advantageous. Scoundrels and Operatives will find that they have more survivability with the inclusion of an instant activation heal and gaining Scamper/Exfiltrate earlier in the game. For further changes, see below:

Scoundrel and Operative
Gunslinger and Sniper

Trooper/Bounty Hunter
Troopers and Bounty Hunters will find that their resource costs have been adjusted in order to make resources more manageable, and that the order that abilities are received has been streamlined to allow for easier leveling and earlier access to tanking and healing abilities, depending on Discipline. Additionally, Diversion/Chaff Flare is now just for Commandos/Mercenaries, while Vanguards/Powertechs can reduce their threat with Sonic Round/Missile while Ion Cell/Gas Cylinder is not active, but it continues to be an area taunt while Ion Cell/Gas Cylinder is active. For further changes, see below:

Commando and Mercenary
Vanguard and Powertech

Flashpoint + Operations

  • Blood Hunt has been added to the Tactical Flashpoint category for levels 56-60.
  • Battle of Rishi has been added to the Tactical Flashpoint category for levels 56-60.
  • Assault on Tython has been added to the Hard Mode Flashpoint category at level 60.

  • New GUI Element: Effect Procs! An eye-catching visual effect is now played around hotbar buttons when the ability in that button has been "powered up" by another effect.
  • The Player Buff and Player Debuff trays have been removed from the Player Frame and have been moved into new, separate frames that are moveable in the Interface Editor.
  • New Option: Show Personal/Group Mission Progress! This option has been added to the User Interface section of the Preferences Window. When enabled, Mission progress will be shown in the large tooltip when placing your cursor over an object in-game that is involved with a Mission the player/group member is on.
  • New Option: Highlight Effects! This option allows the user to enable effect highlighting, which adds a border to buff and debuff icons.
  • New Option: Effect Highlight Max Duration! This option allows the user to define the max duration of the effects they would like highlighted.
  • New Option: Personal Effects! Allows the user to enable personal sorting on the effects. If this option is selected it will separate the buffs into two lists apply the sort to those two lists then merge them back together displaying personal first.
  • New Option: Effect Sort Type! This option allows the user to define the sort for the selected frame, and has been added to the Player Buff, Player Debuff, Target, and Focus Target Frames:
    • Apply Time: This option sorts the effects by the time they were applied. This is the most similar to how effects are currently sorted.
    • Total Duration: This option sorts effects by the total duration of the effect.

Mechanics

Overview

With 10 million hit points and a six minute soft enrage timer, this is fight for a large group of players, likely 24. Based on the mechanics, damage output and the fact that this encounter does not take place in a phase, the Lance Squadron Command Unit should be viewed as a new 10-Stack Dreadtooth for decently geared Level 60 players.

Suggested group composition is two tanks, six to eight healers, and at least ten DPS.

The battle with the Lance Squadron Command Unit takes place on a platform overlooking a ravine. The platform is open on three sides and anyone knocked off the platform and into the ravine will be instantly killed.

All Roles

The Orbital Missile Battery and its five roaming targeting circles are active for the entire fight. It is important to not touch the targeting circles to avoid Air Strikes being called in that could hit you, or another group member. It is critical that if you are in an Air Strike, you immediately move out of it as the 30 meter knockback can easily throw you off the platform to your death in the ravine.

No player should ever be within 5 meters of the space between the walker's feet. All damage from Poisoned and Explosive Charge can be avoided by keeping a safe distance.

Tanks

The walker should be tanked so its back is to the ravine. This protects the tanks from being knocked off when they receive the knockback from High Impact Bolt.

The walker does not have a standard cleave. Rather, the AoE effect that surrounds the tank receiving High Energy Beam means that no one should be standing within 5 meters of the tank that the walker is aggroed on.

A taunt swap is performed after one tank receives 10 stacks of Melted Armor from the High Energy Beam. This is not mandatory, as a tank can be healed though 10 seconds of 0% armor, but it’s helpful to the healers to perform the swap.

Healers

Special attention should be paid to the tank the walker is aggroed on, especially when they are receiving Melted Armor stacks from the High Energy Beam, and as they are waiting for their 10 Melted Armor stacks to fall off, as they have 0% armor during that time.

The Poisoned DoT ticks very hard over its five second life. It should be immediately cleansed from any player that picks it up.

Periodic group-wide damage occurs from the Cluster Rockets which can be easily recovered through HoTs.

The soft-enrage can be healed though, even when damage output is increased by 200%. Players being hit by Explosive Charge or Poisoned will likely be almost instantly killed.

DPS

The Orbital Missile Battery is active for the entire fight. DPS numbers will be lower than what players are typically used to achieving due to the frequent movement that is required to avoid being targeted by the Battery, or to move out of any Air Strikes that players find themselves in.

Timing: Unknown

Arankau (Persons of Note)

Blaster's Path (Location)

Raider's Cove has become a top stop for those who like their fun times in a tropical paradise seasoned with a healthy pinch of danger, and the Blaster's Path cantina is the go-to destination. Set a short distance from ebony-sanded beaches, patrons can enjoy their drinks out under the warmth of the sun and in Rishi's tranquil waters. And when the weather turns, the Path serves as shelter from relentless monsoons and chilly winter nights.

The Path's two stories offer ample space for drinks, concerts, card tournaments, and large private events, leaving many first-timers stunned to hear the cantina's owner downplay its qualities. But anyone who knows Kareena knows that her dry cynicism comes from regret. Ever since she allowed the Nova Blades a stake in the Path, the Blades have had their run of the place and profits have declined as a result. Kareena does hold onto a glimmer of hope that she'll one day make the Blaster's Path fully hers again, though she's not exactly holding her breath.

Raider's Cove (Location)

In the hearts and minds of many of its residents, Raider's Cove isn't some cobbled-together beach town - it's their safe haven. The same relative lawlessness that allows unsavory types to steal and fight with abandon also gives those who don't wish to live under the rule of galactic authorities a suitable home. And it's not as though Raider's Cove is a hotbed of anarchy: the town's founding pirate crew, the Nova Blades, routinely contend with residents and visitors who become too much of a nuisance.

The first phase of Raider's Cove, now a bustling port, was built using only what the stranded Nova Blades had available from their crashed ship, plus whatever natural resources they could plunder from the local Rishii. As more pirates arrived on Rishii and the local economy began to flourish, relatively polished structures were constructed along the black-sand shores and Raider's Cove became a vacation destination for adventure and trouble seekers everywhere - a true resort for the wicked.

Republic Traitors (Lore)

Revan's Conflict Over Rishi (Lore)

Rishii (Species)

The Rishii have soared as their planet's dominant species for many thousands of years. Their powerful wings, honed talons and knack for mimicking the sounds of other living things make them natural hunters. While highly intelligent, they prefer to apply their smarts to reflective and societal matters over technological advancement.

Content to lead simple lives in villages set atop high mountain peaks and grow their population at a glacial pace, the Rishii have no reason to war amongst themselves, though their ability to defend themselves from predators make them skillful combatants. Some Rishii have chosen to relocate closer to the outsiders who have colonized the world in recent years, the most adventurous among them integrating more fully and opting for the thrill of a pirate's life.

3.0 Secrets

Note: The following section was written by Acuzel of The Shadowlands.

The Ancient Threat

Step 1: Ancient Tome

First travel to the Outlaw's Den on Tatooine and locate the Ancient Tome (X: ?, Y: ?). The Ancient Tome will give you a buff that allows you to damage the upcoming boss. (Thanks to Pythirr for discovering this).

Step 2: Sith Spirits

Once you have the Ancient Knowledge buff, travel to Yavin IV and begin searching for the 4 Sith Spirits. An achievement is available for discovering and clicking each one. For discovering them all you get another achievement and the legacy title "Speaker for the Dead." Interestingly, each spirit buffs you for 1 hour (persists through death) and while the description of each buff is similar, the icons are different. When you click on each Sith Spirit it will perform an AOE knockback, buffing everyone in range, before disappearing. If you leave Yavin IV, the buffs will be removed.

Buff Descriptions: Force Echo - You have been touched by the Force and an echo of that power remains within you.

Location 1: 2699, 635 - In a cave that connects Prowler's Trail and Verdant Swamp (Jungle Cave).

Location 2: 1920, 311 - North from Imperial camp that is next to Massassi Village (Alcove camp). There is a small dark forest with webs and other objects. The Spirit is behind the biggest tree (The Architect's Hollow).

Location: 1640, 550 - On top of the Massassi Temple behind Lord Commander Inkari.

Location: 1661, 724 - Entrance to the cave where you have puzzle (story) and relics (daily) quest phases. The Spirit is wandering inside.

Step 3: Talismans

Once you have all 4 Sith Spirit buffs (Echoes of the Force), you can begin searching for the talismans. Upon finding a talisman, interacting with it will remove its corresponding Sith Spirit and grant you a new 2 hour buff called "Talisman of the Force." You will receive this buff a total of 4 times (1 talisman per spirit). As before, if you leave Yavin IV or enter an instance the buffs will be removed.

Location 1: Massassi Village

Location 2: Prowler's Trail

Location 3: Verdant Swamp

Location 4: ?

Step 4: Summoning The Ancient Threat

Once you've obtained 4 stacks of "Talisman of the Force", head to the training grounds to summon The Ancient Threat. To do this, find the Unknown Talisman (immediately to the east of the temple, looking at the world map, and left of the Jungle Cave entrance). Assign whoever has 4 stacks to click the Unknown Talisman. A second or two will go by and then the boss will spawn.

The Ancient Threat has about 65k health and the only noticeable mechanic present is a medium-sized purple ring around the boss that damages anyone inside the ring for 9-10k per second. Don't stand in the circle or heal while in it.
