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 >
Talk about a continuity error. Geez. If there's two Torians, then why can't I have both????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 >
Here is my sage that i am playing right now. This picture was taken when I was like level 15. I am now level 17 though.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 >
So I was was wondering, if I moved/deleted a lot of pictures off my computer would it help me not lag on the game?Read more >
I've been doing a lot of work on different leveling strategies, which is one of the reasons that I've been off the wiki for so long. I experimented with lots of new characters, beginning from level 1, and trying to challange myself to get as high as I could. I've finally found a way to ensure that all players can get from 1 to 50 without the need to purchase unessecary guides and such. I decided to post my sharings on the Wiki instead of hold onto it myself. For all you noobs or veterans, free-to-play or subscribers, here you are!
- Start a new character and play through your starting world (Tython , Ord Mantell , Korriban , or Hutta ), completing all story and side missions along the way. Heroic Missions can either be completed once you reac…

2.4 has been live on all servers for almost a week, and I can honestly say I am very pleased with it. Oricon is now my favorite planet on the game, and really was an improvement to the disaster Makeb was. The new reputation gear (particularly Dread Host on Imp side) is absolutely epic, and the storyline there is very entertaining. But, what's the community's thoughts on Oricon? And maybe some info on the new ops, I haven't gotten a chance to run them yet.Read more >
On my guild website, which can be found here I have several posts that have detailed Youtube videos for boss fights in the Explosive Conflict, Terror From Beyond and Scum and Villainy SWTOR operations (in most difficulty classes) and I figured that it might be an idea to start including said videos on the operation boss pages, so that people who visit the TOR Wiki would have the opportunity to not just learn a little bit about the particular operation bosses, but also see them in action - and more importantly how to put them down.
I understand that there is limited video content but I think there is potential that for at least operations, video content would be a big positive to have and would add a dynamic element to the wiki.Read more >

Hello all Wiki admins, users and regular viewers,
I've been looking at the Wiki for some time now, browsing through random pages and other articles, and the one thing I've seen is that the Wiki is a big mess. Only a few mission, and character pages actually follow a similar format, and a lot of KOTOR and KOTOR II pages hardly have enough information to really be considered worthy of being on the Wiki. I'm not saying that any information is bad, or that any information provided by other users is not helpful to the Wiki's development, but that info needs more of the same info to really help SWTOR and KOTOR players with gameplay and understanding. Therefore, I propose a Wiki clean-up project to help the Wiki with development. Here's the plan o…Read more >

Is there the possibility that some people can start a new character and spend their time on that character gathering research all side missions, people, places and other surrounding? A lot of articles are really inconsistant with the actual mission, and several people have started this, and haven't finished it yet. Get back to me on this.
