1.5: HK-51 Activated on swtor.com

Patch 1.5.0 launched the Free-to-Play option and also features the Cartel Market. Section X, a new daily mission area on the planet Belsavis, has been added which also starts the mission to obtain the new companion, HK-51. Nightmare Mode is now available for the operation Explosive Conflict. This is the fifth content update since release.

General[edit | edit source]

  • The names of guilds that are inactive (any guild that has had no members log in for 8 weeks) will now be released for use by new guilds. If a guild member logs back in once a name is released, that guild member can reclaim the guild's name if it has not been taken. If the name has been taken, the guild will be granted a free rename.
  • If no member of a guild logs in for 8 weeks, the next guild member to log in will be promoted to Guild Leader.

Items[edit | edit source]

Legacy[edit | edit source]

  • Players can now unlock their Legacy at level 10.
  • The Legacy panel now accommodates much larger Legacies.
