BioWare has announced a new initiative to encourage more new players to jump into Star Wars: The Old Republic with the Light vs. Dark event, scheduled to go live on all servers on June 28th, 2016. The event does not have a set end date, and is intended to be experiences with characters created on or after the event's start date. The focus of the event centers on the light side and dark side decisions made by players throughout the event to unlock one of two companions depending on the majority of the choices made.
Along the way, players will have the chance to earn several new titles, mounts, armor sets, and will be able to collect crates that will gift players with items from previous cartel packs, similar to the current Grand Chance Cubes.

Greetings, readers, editors, and passers-by,
There has been a lot (or in most cases, nothing) happening recently with the SWTOR Wiki - several of these things are areas that I have been thinking about recently, and would like to address with you all.
About a year or so ago, this wiki was a thriving community. Users from around the world were both contributing their information to appropriate articles and talking back and forth on our forums. We had a team of several administrators, and there was always something new to talk about and somebody to talk about it with.
Since that time, so many things have happened with the game...various events have come and gone, new characters have been introduced, and then Knights of the Fallen Empire, the big…Read more >

So yes, just to clarify before we start, this is an actual promotion. In no way could I be making this up.
During the Star Wars: The Old Republic developer livestream last night, Eric Musco was joined by Ben Irving, Lead Producer of the game, to talk about their plans for what future and what players (especially subscribers) can expect from the game in the near future. They even had their plan laid out and shown before they dived into those topics, and because they were already in order, that makes my job easy.
The two kicked off the stream by thanking players (repeatedly) for their feedback on Fallen Empire, and said that BioWare is so happy that players find the expansion to be so appealing. They highlighted several people's comments and t…

Cartel packs as we know them are gone. The structure, how many items per pack, how rarities are identified...gone. You could even go so far as to say that the whole Cartel Market has been altered as a result of these recent changes.
But what may seem like a disaster is really just BioWare's attempt to make things a little easier to understand, especially with the influx of new players jumping into both the base game and the new Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion. Here's what has changed
For starters, the packs themselves have now been altered. Each only contains two items (a huge step down from five-six items in the past), with one item of a gold, silver or bronze rarity rating and a companion gift. That's right - you're getting a compa…

Since the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June, details about the new SWTOR digital expansion have been slow in coming. But information provided by developers since the announcement of this new expansion give players and fans alike a general idea as to just what this expansion will look like. Here's what we know so far.
- RELEASE DATE: October 27th, 2015
- EARLY ACCESS: October 20-27th, 2015
- NEW LEVEL CAP: 61-65
The Sith Empire has fallen. The Galactic Republic has faded into obscurity. In their absence, a new galactic power takes control of the known galaxy: the Eternal Empire. Reigning with an iron fist and dominating everything in it's path, this new superpower is ruled by an Immortal Emperor and his two sons. You play as the Outlander, frozen…

Star Wars: The Old Republic fans have been going crazy over the internet over the course of the last day, after BioWare and EA released the lineup for their upcoming E3 conference, which will be held in Los Angeles, CA on Monday, June 15th. The pages of script pertaining to announcements and other content scheduled for the conference included this tidbit about SWTOR, and was the first thing to make fans wonder what might be revealed on Monday.
It's been confirmed: the new expansion will be called Knights of the Fallen Empire. It makes sense on some level to release a new expansion, what with BioWare releasing all sorts of teasers over the past number of months. From the secret image file on the Star Wars Celebraiton thumb drives to the devs …

Star Wars Celebration - Anaheim, California - April 16th-19th, 2015
Highlighted by both the Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Battlefront trailers, Star Wars Celebration Anaheim was one of the most memorable events for the franchise. Among all the excitement of future content, some BioWare and SWTOR specialists - including Eric Munsco, Charles Boyd and Jesse Sky - were on hand for the SWTOR Cantina Tour event. While most of what they said was what we had already seen from PTS patches or notes from Dulfy, here's what they confirmed during the livestream.
1. Patch 3.2 - The new story content, intended to serve as an epilogue for the events of Shadow of Revan, has been confirmed and officially named "Rise of the Emperor." …

I'm happy to announce that Wikia has asked me to be an ambassador for them at the Wizard World Comic-Con in Las Vegas next weekend! I'll be part of the Superfan Crew and will be capturing moments from the trip in the forms of blogs, tweets, videos, and photos.
Who I'll meet and what will happen there - I've got no clue, but if you all are interested in following along with me next weekend (April 24-26), feel free to follow along on social media from both myself and Wikia. If you happen to be in Vegas for the event, I'll be sure to grab a pic with you!
The chances of me editing much here will be down during Wizard World, but I'll still be here and will be composing a daily blog either here or on Community Central to document th…

After reading Revan story-page, I been suprised about he have no faction, aren't his faction is "Order of Revan". I would like if he'll reborn again and will create new Empire! Also why Revan is Jedi Consular? His "Revanite" Warrior class or even Sith Warrior (Staff think), for me his Sith/Revanite Inquisitor! Also what new storyline will be "Shadow of Revan"? "The Finale"? Or "Return of Malak" or "Sith Emperor's Dead SpaceStation" (In word "dead" I mean space station are dangerous)? Write what do you think in comments!Read more >
I very would be happy if there will be SWTOR 2. I bored of SWTOR 1, I'll be honest. I think that BioWare have to make SWTOR 2 with new storyline! What do you think guys? Tell me in comments or whateverRead more >
I don't get it? Revan light side or dark side? Or his non-side? It's hard to understand becouse of stories in KOTR and SWTOR!Read more >
I'd like to draw your attention to the homepage for a moment. I've been keeping up with Wikia Community Central updates, and this new feature was added to the Features/Labs section, allowing for another image to be superimposed at the top, as well as give the main navigtion slider a new contemporary look. I added it in, but it almost seems a little too bulky to me. I like it, but I'd like to get some community consensus: what do you guys think of the new homepage look?
Please leave a comment below and share your thoughts!

Hello, TOR Wikians!
If you guys were unaware, TOR Wiki applied for a spotlight back in 2013, but we were hoping to generate more contributions and attract new users to the Wiki again, so I applied just about a week ago for another spotlight. I recieved a reply from Wikia staff, essentially stating that we need to clean up the Stubs category before we can proceed.
The limit on stubs that can be on a Wiki before a spotlight can be accepted is 1/5 of all total pages. In our case, that's a max of about 800, but we have over 1400. I need to ask that everyone do what they can to help us out with removing the Stub category from articles that you believe don't need it and cleaning up other articles so that we can remove it as well. Once we have the…Read more >

Hello guys! I'm back! (I was a former admin and bureaucrat of TOR Wiki) and I wanted to come to you today because I saw a need for a somewhat 'revamp' of the wiki.
A revamp is when a community decides that the community's articles aren't in the best shape, and articles need to be changed to be updated to current standards.
I think a bunch of articles need to be updated to acceptable standards.. which is the best of the best of information we can offer. Like, general cleanup of articles would be nice, also cleaning up redlinks, etc etc.
We work as a team (community) that we are to do what needs to be done.
If you have any questions or anything feel free to leave me a message. But please remember this is a proposal and can be updated as the commun…

I'm just writing this to let you know that I may be inactive until after the start of the new year. I'm going on a trip with relatives away from the internet for a while, and I may not be editing until maybe Jan 2nd or so.
If you have any need for an administrator, Helios8 is currently active, so please direct any questions to him until you see me editing again.
I hope to be back soon! Good Hunting!

As if BioWare wasn't doing enough to make us want to purchase or pre-order the new Shadow of Revan expansion, more trailers were uploaded to the official Star Wars: The Old Republic YouTube channel, giving more insight into what players will expect starting December 2nd.
There's no denying that the expansion will change the playstyle of the game, but there are a few details in these trailers that might pass by some people. Watch closely and see what I'm talking about.
What do you guys think? Leave a comment below and voice your opinion.
Don't forget to pre-order the expansion! http://www.swtor.com/buyRead more >
I've been browsing Wikia recently seeing that lots of people aren't liking the new editor all that much. Wikia added this feature a few months back, beginning with Community Central.
They also added a feature for all administrators that would allow us to enable the editor across our respective Wikis. Ours is currenly disabled, but Wikia added something that would alllow us to use it anyway (with or without our approval). I actually had someone who asked me about it, and we figured out how to reset it back to it's classic visual/source mode editing like the image below.
HOW TO RESET:
- Hover your courser over your username in the top right.
- Click on "My preferences" on the drop-down list.
- Click the "Editing" tab at the top of the s…

I'm trying to keep some articles up to date and it seems we lack infoboxes for the people in each faction. Sure, we have templates for jedi and sith npc infoboxes, but we don't have imperial and republic trooper ones, same with civilians and neutrals and what not. I don't really want to tamper with that due to fact i have absolutely no idea how to do it. Any help would be appreciated.Read more >
After a few weeks of letting us wonder what they're going to be doing with Revan, BioWare has finally revealed what the teaser trailer was for: the second pay-for digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic. They released this trailer on SWTOR.com just a few hours ago.
Details as to what is in the new expansion have been updated to SWTOR.com, and the major features read as follows
- Official Launch Date: December 9th, 2014
- Early Access opens for all who preorder by November 2nd, 2014 (EA date: December 2nd, 2014, so EA is open for one week leading up to the official launch)
- Storyline continues that of the Forged Alliances flashpoint series, where you fight alongside your Republic or Imperial allies to destroy the Revanite in…

Well, lookie here. Everybody's probably seen this already, but it seems as though BioWare has plans for the return of Revan in some wierd fashion, and they released this video to SWTOR.com earlier this month with the tagline "I will finish what I've started."
Well, in 23 seconds, I think we can kindof all assume who that is under the mask...in fact, we outta know that mask all too well from the new Rakata Prime flashpoint released with patch 2.10. The armor set is new, though, so it might fool quite a lot of people.
One can only wonder what this means for potential operations or flashpoint storylines. To me, it looks like another operation, because the Dread Masters series has been wrapped up with the Dread Palace added with the latest patch…

So I was thinking just the other day what is the average Armor Rating in each class. I am wondering because my lvl 27 has an armor rating of just over 1450. I am courious to know if that is bad, good, or is it great? more things for me to ponder.Read more >
Hello, TOR Wikians!

Just to let you all know, all pages that relate specifically to light side and dark sides of the Force have been deleted and their information merged into The Force page. If you have information to add about either side of the Force please add it there. Thanks!Read more >
I am finally back from vacation and as the new year progresses I have a lot of content that I plan on adding to the wikia.
First of all on the skill trees project I would like to finish all the skill trees for a commando.
Secondly, I would like to add NPC's as well as Quest details.
Thirdly I plan to take a few ideas from you guys as a community so feel free to give me suggestions on my Talk Page .

In case you don't know of this yet, here is the same information I highlighted in the forums, this time on blog format.
Game update 2.8: Spoils of War was released to all servers in the early hours on June 10th, but problems were seen almost immediatly. Almost a day later, there are now insane amounts of glitches and bugs there are going through the system. BioWare is now currently adressing issues across the entirety of the game, because there is so much that is currently going wrong. As of 12:46 AM MST, BioWare Control knows of these issues:
Area Transition (to and from Story areas, etc.)
Operations groups finder (will not allow group formation or quitting)
Servers penalizing players for no reason (no idea what this looks like myself c…Read more >
Calling all MMO fans!
I'm excited to announce that Wikia will be creating a Key Moments in MMO History video. This video will give viewers insight on some of the genre's best games, and the best moments from those games. We want to know which moments of the SWTOR's history have resonated with players the most!
What is the most important moment in Star Wars: The Old Republic History?
(For example, was it the introduction of a new expansion? Perhaps the defeat of a major dungeon or boss? An amazing faction-vs-faction war?) We want to hear your opinions to help bring this video to life!
Please submit your comments below. If you would like to personally be featured in the video, record your comment as an audio narration. Your comment could be used t…Read more >
I'm on my way home from work right now and I just thought I'd put a voice to a few things I've had on my mind recently.
I've been a part of this community for close to eight months now and I would have to say that in that time the most enjoyable aspect of that has been the interaction that I've had with the members here on the TOR Wiki.
Whether it has been part of discussions regarding things going on here, answering questions about anything and everything or providing mentorship to some of the younger members here, seeing how this community has evolved and grown has been - on a personal level - very rewarding for me. The opportunity to not just be a part of something, but to also help shape it and watch it develop is something that I am gra…Read more >

Here is some thing to think about Could the novel Star Wars The Old Republic: Revan Spawn another expansion for the game, Please share your views on this thank you.
In response to your blog post about whether or not Revan could make an appearance in SWTOR, I would suggest checking out some of the mid-to-end game flashpoint content for both factions (Imperial and Republic) and I suspect you will find the answer you're looking for there ...

Ok so I am on my sentinel doing the essels mission with a gunslinger and we kill Iornfist and a blaster pistol gets drop. we both pick need (I wanted it for T7) and I win the roll for it. She then proceeds to get really mad and is telling me to give it to her. I ask her how and she kicks me out! I was really annoyed and mad because I wasted 30 minutes doing that mission for nothing. was it ok for her to kick me out since I couldn't use but my comp could?Read more >
Hey all. I know a lot of people wanted to know an easy way or a fast way to level. All the videos online make you buy guides and stuff but in this wiki I want to post a few tips that will help the community.
1. Buy speeder piloting for movement. Movement in sprint or without sprint is the worst thing to do. It will take a long time to reach objectives but with speeder piloting you can easily move around and reduce the timespan.
2. Doing Tactical Flashpoints like Kuat Drive Yards give a bunch of xp.
3. Use an experience boost and be in a 10% XP guild. So your experience is increased by 35% which might not be a lot but every bit of it counts.
4. Double XP weekend. The quickest way to level is to follow all the steps above on a Double XP weekend…

Ok, so I have played a Jedi Shadow to level 30. A Jedi Gaurdian to level 14. A Jedi Sentinel to level 28. A Sith assasin to level 11. A Sith Scorcerer to level 14. A jedi sage to level 17. And lastly a Commando to level 29 (and still going). Amd I would say, by far, the best surviveablity class of all those is the Commando. His DPS and healing is awesome! and Aric Jorgan is a great DPS comp. I mean, my Commando could get me pretty far (being a lagger and a F2P player) So yeah, that's all I wanted to say.Read more >

For posterity reasons, the driod that accompanied Darth Mannus's gifted ship to his apprentice Delcara has begun recording the tale of the young Sith. She renamed the driod from its usual designation to Scribe. She has a humourous streak, unusual in the Sith.
The tale begins with an encounter in Del's Academy days, with references to her youth. Little time is spent on her youngr days as she doesn't share much with Scribe. Much of what he learns of her is either first or second hand knowledge. Also, he tends to extrapolate on her thoughts and private interactions with suprising accuracy. Del is fully aware of his chronicle and is highly supportive. It amuses her, but also shows where she may have made mistakes in the past that she can…Read more >
Which of the eight classes is your favorite? I have played Knight, Consular, Inquisator, and Trooper. Probably the coolest abbilties would be Trooper or Inquisator. The best storyline would be Jedi Knight. I actually cried one time during a story part.... The best comps would be Jedi Knight. T7, Kira, and Doc like eveerything you say. So you get a lot of affection. So Probably my favorite class is Jedi Knight or Trooper...not sure which one.Read more >
