It’s here. It’s finally here! Tomorrow, those of us who have been subscribed to the game since August 10th will leave the cushy confines our strongholds and accept the burdens that come with taking on our role as the Outlander.
While I’m certainly excited for the new the story, there are many other changes that will impact how you play the game. The changes are too numerous to cover here, but there are some wonderful developer blogs that cover everything you need to know and are well worth checking out before you begin your new adventure.
- Crafting Changes in Fallen Empire
- Core World Changes
- Combat Changes in Fallen Empire
- Cartel Market Changes Coming in Fallen Empire
- Jedi Consular and Sith Inquisitor Changes
- Bounty Hunter and Trooper Changes
- Smuggler and Imperial Agent Changes
- Jedi Knight and Sith Warrior Changes
As you can see it’s a lot of reading and a lot of changes. There are also numerous quality of life changes that were revealed during the September 30th live stream. These were things like legacy datacrons, searchable collections, speeder piloting I at level one, a fix to cape clipping, and shareable keybindings.
Just like previous expansions there will be a level cap increase to 65 and a gear reset. If you were thinking of switching main toons or getting into end-game content for the first time, now is the time to do it since everyone will have to level and gear up their toons.
For the most part, I skipped flashpoints and operations in Shadow of Revan. With WoW entering a large lull, I plan to participate more with the end-game this time around.
A brave new Galaxy opens its doors tomorrow, and I’m ready.
