Update 1.2 is almost here! When your system finishes installing the update tomorrow and you log in, make sure that you check out the Top 5 Things to Do After Update 1.2 is live on the servers:
Check Out the New Daily Commendation Rewards
Update 1.2 adds some new items to the Mission Support vendors on Ilum and Belsavis. Just as with the current items, these require daily commendations to purchase. Among the items now available are new crystal schematics (artifice), and new relics. Notes from the test server indicate that the artifice schematics cost 20 daily commendations and the relics cost 200 commendations.
Start Earning Black Hole Commendations
Black Hole commendations can be earned through a series of daily, weekly and operations missions. To get to the Black Hole, head to Correllia, and head for the shuttle parked just outside of the entrance/exit to the Battlefields Shipyard area. Once you enter the door of the shuttle, it will give you a choice of going to either the Correllia Spaceport or the Black Hole.
Once you start to acquire Black Hole commendations, they can be used in exchange for crystal schematics, campaign relics, rakata earpieces and rakata implants.
Try Out the New PvP Warzone
Update 1.2 introduces the Novare Coast Warzone. Will this new warzone get equal playing time, or will it still be Huttball 40% of the time? We won’t know until the PvP matches begin, but I am hoping Huttball gets a little less playing time.
Plan Your Legacy
If you have created other characters, open up the new Legacy tab and set up their relationship. Is your level 32 Bounty Hunter your Jedi Knight’s brother? Nemesis? The speeder mechanic of your ex-roommate’s 2nd cousin? Setup their relationship appropriately as Bioware has stated that more features of the legacy system will be coming in future updates.
Roll a New Character
Don’t want to do another daily grind for commendations? Don’t have a good group to try out the new Flashpoint? Try rolling a new character. This new character will be sure to include any new legacy rewards that you have unlocked from your level 50 character. Try going through the game again with these enhancements. It may be a good idea to start a fresh toon on the opposite faction, to see how the “other half” lives.
