“Vitality has been improved to play an increasingly important role in Legends of Aria. Vitality is lost as players engage in daily tasks in the world of Celador, from chopping trees and fishing to the inevitable and all too frequent dirt nap. Restoring Vitality will be an essential function to keep your character strong and, most importantly, well maintained vitality is essential to ensure maximum stats and optimum rates of skill gain. It’s worth noting that Vitality regeneration may only be offered by performing musicians within established Inns & Taverns. We hope that these changes create some warm and welcoming tavern experiences, offer up some strictly social, non-combat roles, and also to serve the ulterior motive of combating those who may seek to gain skills unlawfully.” Content retrieved from: https://massivelyop.com/2019/08/01/legends-of-arias-new-bard-system-sounds-an-awful-lot-like-star-wars-galaxies/. … [Read more...] about Legends of Aria’s inspired by Star Wars Galaxies?

Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) will be launching its free to play and preferred changes for the MMORPG this month with Game Update 5.10.4. For those that don’t know, SWTOR is a free to play MMO with an optional subscription, and former paying players are known as preferred. Last month, BioWare announced that it would be making some changes to the the limitations that non-subscribers would an encounter in-game. Below are the changes coming. Increased Credit Cap Long gone are the days where you could buy a gallon of Bantha milk for five credits. Initially when SWTOR developed its Free-to-Play and Preferred models, a cap of 200,000 credits and 350,000 respectively seemed like a fair amount. Over the years, it’s become a simple truth that those credit amounts don’t buy what it used to though. As the game has grown, so has the economy. Taking this into account, SWTOR will be raising the credit cap of both Free-to-Play and Preferred members to 1,000,000 credits. … [Read more...] about Is Star Wars: The Old Republic’s F2P Changes Good or Bad?
Star Wars: The Old Republic announced this week that July's 5.10.4 update will improve the free to play experience. The 3 most notable changes are the following: Credit cap for free to play users (and preferred) will be increased to 1,000,000 (up from 200,000 and 350,000). Both free to play and preferred users will get an additional quickbar. (Free to play is now 3, Preferred is now 5). Both free to play and preferred players will gain access to quick travel and medical probes. I suspect Bioware is relaxing the game's free to play restrictions to combat a declining playerbase.

Time flies: I am now coming up on nine years of covering Star Wars: The Old Republic professionally. Of course, I was a Star Wars and Star Wars Galaxies fan way before that. Not only have things changed in the game over that many years, but the sites that covered the game have all changed, and even the crew from this site moved from one venue to another. The famous editor of the daily newspaper Le Figaro, Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, once said, “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.” In other words, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Like many things around SWTOR, this column is going to change up a bit, but in some aspects, it’s going to remain the same or even return to its roots. When this column launched, the two Star Wars games the site covered were Star Wars Galaxies and Star Wars: The Old Republic. One had not launched yet. Since then, our overall coverage of Star Wars games hasn’t really changed much. We still cover … [Read more...] about Hyperspace Beacon: The Star Wars MMOs and communities beyond SWTOR
Play SWTOR for freeSince the server merges, the Star Forge server has unofficially become the roleplay server for Star Wars: The Old Republic. And roleplaying’s fight to remain a relevant way to enjoy this MMORPG has never been tougher. Roleplayers, if nothing else, are resilient. We are still in the game and attempting to find our place in this world where there is little support for our gameplay style from the developers. Some of you might remember the late ’80s, but for those who don’t that was a period of time when the only thing keeping Star Wars alive were the RPGs. Timothy Zahn would not pen Heir to the Empire until 1991, the best video game we had was arcade-only made in ’83, and The Phantom Menace was well over a decade away. This was the period of time that the keeper-of-canon Pablo Hidalgo started his quest to become a part of the Lucasfilm family. It was the time when only two things were keeping the Star Wars alive: the Kenner toys and West End … [Read more...] about Hyperspace Beacon: The sorry state of roleplay in Star Wars: The Old Republic
