    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 or proccess as I think it needs to be done:

    • Viewing KOTOR pages and seeing if they have enough information, and, if not, going into KOTOR and playing it until there can be enough conclusive information to add to the wiki,
    • Finding pages that may appear a…

    New Wiki Forums?

    May 25, 2013 by Dosadnik 1

    Hey guys, I was wondering what you guys think of the "new" forums for wikia. As it stands now nobody is using the TOR wiki forums so I was wondering if I enabled the new ones maybe it will be easier to use and more people would do that. So should I enable it and see if it works out or should we keep the old style forums?

    Here's a link to the features of the new forum: Link

    Over at swtor.com they have provided a new Insider.  It talks about the updates that is coming in 2.1 Customization.  The 2.1 update includes the ability customize the look of your character after you have created it from the simple changing hair colour, eyes, build and even to race.

    Update 2.1 also includes the species Cathar, and the customisation will allow you to change to that species.  This offers some insight into the new species and changes coming in 2.1.  No release date has been provided nor as there been word about this on the PTS.

    Now that the Return of the Gree is live, players will be looking for updated information related to this update, especially the Relics of the Gree World Event and the Galactic Reputation system.  Unfortunately, most of this content is targeted toward higher level characters.  I don't have an active high level character.  So, consider this a call for assistance to those with characters of the appropriate level to assist where possible.  The most useful information will be details on the event, missions and items.  Since the World Event will only last for couple of weeks, that is certainly a priority for information gathering.

    Thanks in advance to any who can help fill out this content information and enjoy the event.

    Gree World Event Coming

    January 20, 2013 by Larry Fuqua

    It appears that along with the last update patch, came news of a new World Event, 1.7 Return of the Gree, that we'll see with the next minor release. In case you aren't aware, you might want to go check it out. The main thing you probably want to be aware of is that you'll really want to have a level 50 character ready for this event. Its focused on Ilum and of course the ancient Gree.

    Unfortunately, for those like me, spending most my time under the cap it doesn't sound like it will provide as much significance. I have a level 48 I might push up to 50, but mostly I've moved on to another character.

    In addition this release will introduce the new Reputation system. It also seems focused on the high level end of the gameplay, so thats where you'll want to be to get a chance to start experiencing this new game mechanic as well.

    So, if really want to enjoy this next release, I encourage you to get leveling if you aren't already near the cap!

    State of the Game #2 has been posted on the SWTOR official news page.  It basically gives an update on current state, future state, and some hot topics. My rundown, from a purely pesonal standpoint:

    In the hear and now, mentions some additional growing around the way Free 2 Play works. So still tweaking.

    For the near future there is love for the PvP-ers (not me, yet). Mentions the digital expansion coming (I pre-ordered).

    Hot topics, weren't so hot for me:

    • "Elder Game Content"
    ugh...I'd rather they grow the game wide than long, if you know what I mean. If you don't, ask me.
    • PvP
    more ugh...PvP is what I do when I've nothing else to do. I'm just not that menacing. To be fair, some love it...but its kind of a different game for me. One I'm just not that into. Wouldn't I just go play Team Fortress 2 or something? I know...I just don't get it.
    • Character Copy to Public Test Server
    Meh...I've plenty to do on the main servers. May be interested in character copy between them.

    So apparently there will be a new world event coming very shortly. Apparently fan sites were notified in advance of the upcoming event and were given a teaser video. That video is circulating on YouTube, so you can just search for "Chevin Teaser" and you should find it before long. On a different, but yet related note. (maybe) There will be no downtime required for the Tuesday maintenance this week. That could be an indication that the event will start tomorrow, but for all we know it might have already done so. So keep your eyes peeled for the new even coming soon™.

    Well some expected it, some didn't, some are super exited, some don't give a damn, but TOR is going F2P. From what they have released so far it seems that they will be going the LotRO model where you can choose between a subscription or free to play, where F2P limits your access to a certain level while Subscription gives you full access plus bonuses. You will be able to purchase the content if you are F2P however. BioWare is introducing the Cartel Market, which is their version of the real money shops from other games. The curency is Cartel Coins which will be available for purchase as well as received by Subscribers every month. Furthermore BioWare is offering rewards to current, former and new subscribers of TOR. You can see all of them here. Beyond that TOR will be going on sale at retail in August for $14.99 USD which includes a free month of subscription. So that's it guys, TOR is going Free to Play. If you like that, or not, or even don't care tell us what you think in the comm…

    As you may have noticed some of the colors on the wiki as well as few mainpage elements have changed. The reason for that is quite simply we are changing up the homepage and the theme of the wiki to make it look better. We are making the homepage more modular, kind of how the Dragon Age wiki is. I have already changed the "News" and "Our Friends" sections to show how it is going to look like. Please give your opinions here. Thanks!

    Looking for Admins

    July 4, 2012 by Dosadnik 1

    Hi, everyone! The thing is I'm currently the only active admin on the wiki as far as I can tell since Scimatt and Drudenfusz haven't been on here for a very long time, and honestly I don't think they've been on any wiki either. Anyway I need help, I need someone to talk to about stuff and make decisions etc. Now I could be a dictator (wiktator?) but I don't wanna and honestly I don't think it's that fun either. So if you want to be an Admin please leave a comment here or on my talk page. I'll see what you have done on the wiki and decide if you will become an Admin. Good luck to you all!

    Datacron Guides

    June 2, 2012 by Dosadnik 1

    So about Datacron Guides. I've seen that the links on the Datacron Locations page change every month or so. So I was wondering instead of relying on other people's videos we make our own. Therefore I'm asking if anyone is willing to make datacron guides specifically for the wiki? If you are then just go ahead and speak now or forever hold your peace :)


    Sorry about disabling commenting. I didn't notice untill now. And I was wondering why there was no responce.

    Combat Log Parser

    April 12, 2012 by AskMrRobot

    Talk about a perfect project for Mr. Robot – he’s a data analysis MACHINE! To live up to that title, he’s built several features for us humans to use. You can check out the combat log tool here, or check out a view with pre-loaded logs.

    • Easy uploading: You can upload your combat logs with any name, even if you renamed it. You can also upload several logs at the same time, if they are from the same run. However, Mr. Robot doesn’t want you to upload unrelated logs, it will confuse him! (Don’t worry, he’ll give you a warning if he’s confused). You can find your combat log in under “My Documents > Star Wars – The Old Republic > Combat Logs.” If the folder is empty, make sure you have “Enable Combat Logging” checked in your preferences menu in-game.
    • Share reports with friends: You can share a link to any report, any view. Try this: switch from one report tab to another, and watch the URL change. If you copy that URL at any point, it will link to the view you had in front of you at that time. …

    It’s time to get your undies in a bundle! Mr. Robot is THE FIRST database to have the patch 1.2 SWTOR items live! You can /cheer for him now… maybe even a /woot would be appropriate.

    • 1.2 Legacy Gear
    • 1.2 Light Armor
    • 1.2 Medium Armor
    • 1.2 Heavy Armor
    • 1.2 Ears / Implants / Relics
    • 1.2 Ranged Weapons
    • 1.2 Melee Weapons
    • 1.2 Offhands
    • 1.2 Mods
    • 1.2 Consumables
    • 1.2 Companion Gear
    • Campaign gear is currently a bit messy, we’re cleaning it up


    Need a little help sorting through what’s what?

    • Legacy System
    • 1.2 Armor Models
    • Black Hole Dailies on Corellia


    You can now equip any of the gear to a character in Mr. Robot’s Character Builder, see an example of a full War Hero set. If you don’t want to sift through those items on your character, there is a toggle to turn the 1.2 items off.


    Remember: Mr. Robot is dedicated to having accurate data. We’re looking for sources for the following sets of items, if you have a screenshot, send it our way!

    • Birthright – where do you get the construction kits?
    • Inheritance – where do you get t…

    Yes patch 1.2 is now on the PTS. The patchnotes are available here. The patch is huge, with 2 and a half forum pages, the posts as big as I don't know what. Go check it out. Also it appears that you get a title for playing a character on the PTS. You get one at lvl 10 and one when you finnish chapter 1. So go test it out and get a title.

    Something to add. Apparently they will be removing the Korrealis Commander and the Korrealis Baron speeders from the game. So if you don't own it, now is a good time to get it. Reminder: Nothing is final and it may change, so they may not remove them after all, but to be on the safe side, go get those speeders. (If you want them of course)

    We just launched a new item database, and you're probably wondering why the internet needs another source. The answer: this one is accurate and has a lot of cool data.

    • Fake items have been removed. Some items, like mastercraft mods, currently don't exist, so you won't find them in our database.
    • Mods & gear they can be ripped from: we are the first and only database to give you a list of gear that mods can be ripped from, see for yourself.
    • Random items & their variants: we are also the first and only source to have a complete list of random items and all variants, like this example.
    • Crafted items and variants: we also have all of the crafted variants with correct stats.
    • 3rd party API: in the next couple of weeks, we are launching an API that will return JSON data for characters and items. If you're developing a tool or have a cool use for your site (like even this wiki!) let me know :)


    What's missing:

    • Some item source information, like mission rewards and world drops. Also, the normal mode flas…

    Today (March 5, 2012), Bioware hosted a guild summit and discussed a lot of upcoming changes in patch 1.2.

    • They are expanding on a lot of the legacy features
    • All crafting crew skills will be reworked so they are all useable for end-game
    • Several guild features will roll out, including a guild bank
    • 2 new dungeons will be released, 1 operation (Explosive Conflict) and 1 flashpoint (Lost Island)
    • PVP ranking will be introduced which will help with the matchmaking system
    • A new PVE and PVP set will be introduced
    • A moddable UI will also be implemented (3rd parties won't be able to develop mods, but users will be able to instead move elements of the UI around and customize it. They should be using the word 'customizable' instead of 'moddable')

    Ask Mr. Robot just released a Character Builder and Armory for SW:TOR. Once Bioware releases an official armory, we'll use that to verify characters, which will be pretty handy.

    Right now, you can build your in-game character on the site, including gear, skill-tree, crew skills, and even datacrons. You can also outfit your companions, and set up a wish list. Take a look at my character as an example.

    We have a lot of new features coming very soon, and want to hear your ideas.

    The first content update ever for Star Wars The Old Republic will be available this Tuesday. Dubbed Rise of the Rakghouls, the update will see “a lot of the things our community has been asking for – additional higher level group content, features like anti-aliasing, PvP bracketing and more. In the future, game updates will be even more substantial, as we promise to continue to not only add to The Old Republic, but to also improve and refine the experience with the full Legacy System and new Guild features” according to Dr. Greg Zeschuk, General Manager of the BioWare Label’s MMO Business Unit and Co-Founder of BioWare.

    There is no doubt about it, Star Wars The Old Republic is not only going to be an absolutely amazing game, but also a ground-breaking MMORPG. Ever since the game was announced back in 2007, the huge development team has continuously been improving the game and readying it for 20 December 2011, only 5 days from now, when the game will finally be released.

    If you're not sure if the game is worth buying, this list of 11 amazing SWTOR features will definitely convince you! If there's something you really like about the game and it isn't on the list, feel free to leave it in the comments!


    1. Voice acting - One of the best features of the game: full voice acting! No MMORPG has ever had voice acting on this scale, with every single character having an actor. Even the player character is fully voiced!
    2. Choices - It wouldn't be a BioWare game if it didn't feature some sort of dialog system. The choices you make in the game could very well decide the outcome of the Galactic War!

    The NDA has been lifted!

    November 18, 2011 by Alexsau1991

    The nondisclosure agreement that prevents players from discussing or showing what they have experienced in TORs beta has now been lifted, meaning leaks are now non-existant. [1]

    That doesn't mean information can be added with out correct sourcing, far from it. For example, if one tester says that Twi'lek's are playable by the Sith Warrior it can not be added unless their is proof to back it up.

    We should be vigilant about fake information being added from this point on, as for us non-testers we can't know for sure if information is true of false.

    Pre-Order

    July 21, 2011 by Scimatt16

    I am happy to announce that Pre-order is now available. Those of you who are members at SW:TOR already know this, but I figured that I would post it anyway. Click here to look at the different pre-order options. The best thing about pre-order in my opinion is that you can get early access. Who else is excited, cause once they announce pre-order, you know what comes next!

    At the ongoing E3 Expo, a brand new Star Wars: The Old Republic cinematic trailer has been revealed.

    It reintroduces Darth Malgus, The Trooper and Satele Shan first seen in the Hope and Deceived cinematics.

    This trailer depicts the return of the Sith Empire to known space, with an attack on Korriban. This attack leads to the fall of the Republic forces stationed there and the Sith reclaim the planet. This is the first of many times that Satele Shan and Darth Malgus meet in combat.

    The embargo on the PvP information learned at the Fansite Summit has just lifted, and Darth Hater has posted a list of details.


    • All classes gain Resolve bars while in PvP. These bars are a visual representation of diminishing returns that show a characters susceptibility to crowd control.
    • Resolve bars can be seen by all players alongside each player's health bar. The intent is to make tactical play accessible to more players by showing whether or not crowd control will succeed.
    • Tank characters have access to a "Guard" ability. Currently, this ability lets a tank class select a specific ally and absorb 50% of that ally's damage so long as they remain within 15m. This was added to give the last side of the trinity a place within PVP.
    • Warzone maps include power-up scattered in key locations that refresh regularly. Observed power-ups include Increased Speed, Increased Damage, and Healing.
    • All power-ups can be picked up and utilized while in stealth; this includes the Speed boost.
    • Map objectives…

    I have imported some of the KotOR content from SWGames wiki, because as of recently we decided to host KotOR content and the all but dead SWGames Wiki had allot of the content already written, so it would be a waste of time if we replicated it. And under the creative commons license we are also aloud to host it here.

    Now I need help from anyone whos willing to help re-categorised and bring some of the articles to our standard by replacing their infoboxes, adding images and changing the wording to bring it into our specific era - removing articles calling it the "Old Republic" rather than the Galactic Republic for example.

    All the content that needs doing is in here and I encourage anyone who's willing to pick and choose which ever articles they wish to help with, as you re-categorise them remove the one so that we know that its been done. Find all the articles that still need editing '

    After you have done so add this template to the talk page: , replace "article name here" with the artic…

    Partnership with TorBB

    March 1, 2011 by Ausir

    I am pleased to announce SWTOR Wiki's partnership with TorBB (previously known as Forum of the Old Republic), one of the biggest forums dedicated to Star Wars: The Old Republic on the web. The forum has just been relaunched with a new skin and a new address. The partnership is sure to bring more dedicated fans of the game to the wiki, both as readers and as editors.

    Aside from the usual link exchange, TorBB now also hosts a dedicated forum for our wiki. Everyone is free to join the forum, and our administrators will, of course, be given moderator rights in the wiki board.
