You love it so much you did a panel on it during Celebration 2022. So lets start off with this very simple question: What IS lore exactly and in terms of SWTOR what does that look like? Scya: When we’re talking about lore in different types of media, whether it’s video games, books or movies, usually refers to the larger over-arching story and its details, much of which is more obscure or not easily seen as part of the main plot or story. In Star Wars: The Old Republic specifically, apart from the cutscenes, books and comics, the additional Lore is delivered in the form of Codex entries, readable text snippets which can be found across the galaxy. They are broken down into several categories: Datacrons, Epic Enemies, PvP, Titles, Bestiary, Crew Skills, Events, Game Rules, Locations, Organizations, Persons of Note, Planets, Ships and Species.

Mal: Flashpoints are group content in SWTOR that has both story and unique enemies to fight. Each flashpoint is almost like an episode of Your SWTOR Character’s Life etc. Some of them have longer stories and cut scenes, especially the earlier ones, and some are more simple. Scya: What was your first ever Flashpoint? What did it feel like? Mal: First flashpoint ever was Black Talon, I played the beta and this was kind of the first thing we did together, my husband and my best friend Norin. They were horrified at a choice I made, which is funny but it was nice to see that in the beta and know perhaps there was another way later! It felt like a cool adventure our characters were going on together outside of our individual class stories that we were all pursing. We did come together to do the world quests and heroics, but up until that point all the story we saw was alone. Plus we didnt want story spoilers so it was a nice coming together moment.

If you haven’t listened to the rest of this multi-part series, you may want to back track, as each expansion launch episode will give you a lot of insight into why veteran players felt the way they did when the latest expansion, Legacy of the Sith, came out. Mal: Okay so lets kick this off here, 7.0 a patch we all know and remember well because it is still going on. Scya, what is the release date for this patch and what is the controversy surrounding that? Scya: 7.0 was announced early in 2021, to the great excitement of many players. It was originally supposed to debut late in the year, and the expansion was supposed to launch with the new story, new flashpoint, new combat style system, new operation, and new daily area on Manaan. In November of the same year, it was announced that the Operation and Daily area would be pushed back until January 2022, and we still didn’t have a date for the actual expansion that was supposed to launch during the “holidays”. At some point, we got a livestream, where the date was finally announced for December 2021! Mal: Unfortunately, a week before it was supposed to launch, the announcement came that the entire expansion was going to be delayed until February 2022, which is when it finally actually launched - but it still wouldn’t include the operation and the manaan daily area. ✨✨🛰️ ✨✨ News Social Starforgepodcast.com@starforgecasthttps://twitter.com/starforgecastSwtorista’s YouTube channelhttps://www.youtube.com/swtorista

I feel like this is what most people are going to remember best of all these xpacs because it was so recent and so recently overridden hahahahah! If you don’t want your spoiler-free brain overridden with our spoiler discussions for Onslaught the exits are marked overhead. Scya: This expansion’s story release was actually quite interesting. So they released Ossus, which was quite story-rich and was a pretty expansive planet, but more importantly, was not launched as an expansion - it was just a big content update, and it came in December 2018. Although players were of course hoping for a full expansion, I think people were pretty happy with how much was on Ossus. Mal: But then we didn’t get the actual expansion until October 2019! Almost a full year later, with only a small story update on Dantooine in-between. Scya: Once Onslaught actually launched, Ossus was rolled into it, and you had to catch up with story content on Ossus if you hadn’t done that prior to this patch, you could not skip it on your ship. The story brought us two new planets, Onderon and Mek-sha, a new flashpoint, a *GASP* New Operation, Dxun. ✨✨🛰️ ✨✨ News Social Starforgepodcast.com@starforgecasthttps://twitter.com/starforgecastSwtorista’s YouTube channelhttps://www.youtube.com/swtorista

Early access was November 29, 2016. If you have not played KOTET and you do not want to hear spoilers turn us off now, re-listen to an earlier episode, or go see shit you can’t make up in an EV HM. Always something new there. So Scya what is the elephant in the room here? Scya: So this xpac was once again free to subscribers as with the last expansion KoTFE, but the bantha in the room here? This was released at the very end of 2016 so at this point it had been almost 2 years since SWTOR released major story and game updates. This felt especially long to end game players because there were no new Operations released with KoTFE so now it has been almost 3 years with no new end game content, and this fact was actually a big turning point in how I engaged with the game. We’ll talk more about that later, let’s quickly list what we did get. Mal: When 5.0 launched we got new story: 9 fully fleshed out chapters when the patch dropped. Two new planets Iokath and Nathema although you don’t really go to Nathema so that’s kind of a weird thing for them to promote. The level cap went up to 70, all your 65 gear now garbage. Uprisings were introduced in this patch as well, we’ll talk more about those later because Scya and I feel differently about those. ✨✨🛰️ ✨✨ News • Update 7.1 - targeted mid-summer • Bounty Event - Level 15+ - Jul 26 - Aug 2, 2022 • Nightlife Event - Nar Shaddaa Casino - Confirmed to be coming this year Social Starforgepodcast.com@starforgecasthttps://twitter.com/starforgecastSwtorista’s YouTube channelhttps://www.youtube.com/swtorista

Early access was October 19, 2015 and general admission started October 27, 2015. If you have not played KOTFE and do not want to hear spoilers you should turn this off now. Scya: Talk about this and then, the price of the xpac was very different. Kotfe was not a direct buy, you gained access to KOTFE instead by subbing to the game for 1 month. No extra money required. Mal: This is a huge departure from the past 2 xpacs and it is probably due to the fact that I think a lot of free to play people were playing the game, a lot of people who had subbed to the game had unsubbed due to a lack of end-game and other content. They clearly wanted free-to-play people to start subbing and older players to come back and remaining subscribers to feel like they were getting something shiny and new for free. ✨✨🛰️ ✨✨ News • Update 7.1 - targeted mid-summer • Pirate Incursion Event - Dantooine, Level 20+* - Jul 12 - 19, 2022 • Bounty Event - Level 15+ - Jul 26 - Aug 2, 2022 • Nightlife Event - Nar Shaddaa Casino - Confirmed to be coming this year Social Starforgepodcast.com@starforgecasthttps://twitter.com/starforgecastSwtorista’s YouTube channelhttps://www.youtube.com/swtorista

Scya: ANSWER Mal: That being said, the first stop on our tour is going to be your cape! Now I was lucky enough that you actually shared this project with me about a month before it was actually made so thank you for that. Scya tell me about this cape! Scya: IS AWESOME CAPE I HAVE! Mal: Tell me next about a few things you got to do because you are you. Here you are Scya but mostly you are known as the one, the only Swtorista and you got to do a ton of very special things including an Old Republic panel! Give me the details Scya: Answers Mal: And did you get to visit any other panels that really interested you that you were not the star of? Scya: (Dave Filoni & tales of the Jedi panel, Behind the Scenes ILM & Mando panel) Mal: I also heard you left there with a special and very exclusive present from a certain bag company that I personally freaking love (I actually just got my backpack zipper fixed on the one I own and love). Tell me about your trip to Loungefly! Scya: (Has a free Revan bag you lucky lady!) Mal: Speaking of the perfect bag for cosplay, lets talk about cosplay! I hear there was a Cosplayers of the Old Republic booth and a photo shoot! Scya: Tells all about that Mal: I find this fascinating because I did cosplay way back in 2015 and it was wild because about 300 people had signed up to do it at a cantina event but only 8 people actually showed up and now it’s crazy how popular this has become. Besides the Old Republic cosplay what other good outfits did you see? Scya: (Talks about the billions of star wars costumes you saw) Mal: Lets loop back to SWTOR here for a moment– I feel like they were very well represented at Celebration, did you get a chance to sit in on any SWTOR dev talks? Did you meet anyone working on or who had previously worked on SWTOR? Scya: (Dev talks, Darrin DePaul yes?

They didn’t even share GTN via fleet, the GTNs all had factions!!!! You couldn’t even send mail to yourself on another side, we used to have to go to a “neutral” GTN on Nar Shadda and then list an item for a ridiculously high price and then swap characters and buy it on the opposite faction. Hilarious! No legacy bay either, no sharing of gear etc. You really did pick a side and that is where you played because the game made it so hard to do otherwise.

In a recent trip to Rishi a healer, who was content to remain nameless and hoover up tech fragments in a quick story mode Ravagers, found herself with an angry pug. The op was going by lightning fast, the group was in a jet engine being powered by a 2 big dps, 1 amazing tank, 1 power-lifting healer, 1 nameless lazy healer, and 3 pugs.. When it came time for Master and Blaster someone threw out a ready check and 2 of the pugs said they were not ready. “Ready” one of them typed into chat. Another ready check was thrown. This time just 1 said not ready, which was quickly followed up with a “sorry ready” in the chat. One more check was thrown JUST to be sure. “The Group is Ready!” announced the game –3-2-1 go! As soon as the pull began, one pug died immediately. The slacking healer sighed, clicked their name and looked for the body. Not in the corners. Not in the middle of the map. Not by the fence. Oh well, she thought, it is just story mode. After another death she realized she was going to have to stop being lazy and actually help, but this body was located quickly and returned to life once again, nothing to see here. When the fight was over, the first dps who died began typing in chat “Can someone PLEASE rez me, I’m outside the door”. Why would they be outside the door? The now tired healer wondered. She gave them a rez and instead of ‘thank you’ they said “I died because you pulled without me”. Perhaps this dps did not understand the function of a ready check and were confused by the pop-up question. Perhaps this was their first time doing this fight and they thought it would start 200 meters away from the boss. One can only wonder at this phenomenon and offer the following advice: when presented with a ready check and you are not, in fact, ready don’t fucking click yes. ✨✨🛰️ ✨✨ News Bounty Contract Week: May 17th - May 24th, 2022The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally: May 31st - June 7thSocial Starforgepodcast.com@starforgecasthttps://twitter.com/starforgecastSwtorista’s YouTube channelhttps://www.youtube.com/swtorista

In a recent trip to the Eternity Vault a very good but very sick dps (who shall remain nameless lest she spread her disease to the rest of the galaxy) pulled up to the first boss with a group of 16 people– one of whom was a pug. It started on the 1st boss, a heal marker placed under the feet of the annihilation droid. Okay, sure, the dps thought. A good place to gather for AOE heals. While waiting for a speeder to the 2nd boss another marker appeared by the speeder. Yes, obviously, thats the speeder to ride. On the way to the 3rd boss more markers appeared. One at the foot of a cliff used to bypass trash. Another farther down the road to lead the way. Uh huh. Then more markers appeared on the terminals for the pylon boss and at this point people were annoyed. “Who is putting down all these markers?” someone asked. “Oh…it’s the pug!” someone else answered. On the way to the last boss someone wondered if the pug would again place markers on the ground to lead the way and, sure enough, they did! THANK YOU SO MUCH the coughing dps typed into Ops chat. She then proceeded to place upwards of 20 markers on the platform in various and sundry spots. At this point everyone else in the group joined in and soon there were markers everywhere, much to everyones delight. On the last floor the tired, sniffling dps made one last ditch effort– she placed markers around the entire lower ring and told the group “These are where the mind traps might spawn so please be aware”. After Soa was defeated, the sick dps pulled up the parser to find she was doing overall 2 times the damage of the pug. Perhaps this pug thought that this was our first time in Eternity Vault. It is, after all, only 10 years old. Perhaps they thought the group needed guidance and direction for this extremely challenging operation. This reporter can offer only the following advice for pugs doing bad dps in a very large group: shut the fuck up and get carried.
