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.

Classes and Combat[edit | edit source]

  • Subscribers are no longer charged credits for skill point re-specializations.

Jedi Knight[edit | edit source]



  • Merciless Zeal's healing has been reduced to .5% per point (down from 1% per point).

Sith Warrior[edit | edit source]



  • Hungering's healing has been reduced to .5% per point (down from 1% per point).

Group Finder[edit | edit source]

  • Travelling to a new area while in a Group Finder queue no longer occasionally causes the UI to behave as if the player is not in the queue.

Missions and NPCs[edit | edit source]

  • Some missions on Origin Worlds now offer Experience Boost rewards.

Items[edit | edit source]

  • The cost to remove mods from items has been reduced for subscribers.
  • The Collector's Edition vehicle and all vehicles available in the Cartel Market can now be used with the lowest-level rank. Their speed now scales based on the rank unlocked by characters.

  • Dread Guard relics are now available on the Daily vendor for 300 Daily Commendations.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

  • Players can now unlock their Legacy at level 10.
  • The Legacy panel now accommodates much larger Legacies.
  • Each rank of the Legacy Experience perk now grants +6% experience (as opposed to a gradual increase of +2/4/6/8/10). The total possible bonus from Legacy perks is still 30% in each category.

  • Elite War Hero armorings, barrels, and hilts have had their stats improved slightly.

  • Different quickslot bars can no longer be jumped to in the primary quickslot bar if they are already visible in another location on-screen.
  • The deposit for items placed on the GTN is now a percentage of the item's value (instead of being based on the player's set price).
