Game Update 2.3 is Now Live on PTS!

Game Update 2.3 is now live on our Public Test Server! For those of you that already have high level, copied characters on our Public Test Server, we encourage you to explore the CZ-198 moon and two new Czerka Flashpoints.

Game Update 2.3 contains a host of new features including:

CZ-198 Mission Area

  • CZ-198, a new Level 55 daily mission area, is now available! CZ-198 is a small, private moon where Czerka Corporation’s most secret and dangerous data, research and technology is stored. The facility has recently entered an emergency security lockdown, and both the Empire and the Republic have descended on the moon in order to seize control. Complete missions to earn Galactic Reputation with the Ordnance Acquisition Corps (Empire) / Adjudicators (Republic) and purchase special rewards including powerful droid new companion armor!

Flashpoint: Czerka Corporate Labs

  • Infiltrate Czerka’s corporate headquarters on CZ-198 and take down Rasmus Blys, the Czerka scientist responsible for developing the company’s most dangerous weaponry.
  • All-new role-neutral Story Mode at Level 55. Group Finder will match the first four players of any role for fast queue times!
  • Hard Mode available at Level 55.

  • Hard Mode available at Level 55.

I just saw posts about a new Ewok companion, Treek.  Costs for her mercenary contract was 1 million credits and required legacy level 40. The million credits is no big deal but the legacy level required is higher than mine atm.

I'm confused how they are going to explain away the Ewok's story...

This is like 2000 4000 years before BBY, so how would a race have NOT evolved in that time?  I suppose you could argue de-evolution, but AFAIK Ewoks weren't discovered until Endor....

There are more things in SWTOR that don't truly correlate with canon. This is just one of the things 'the people' want I guess.

There are a lot of stories in the EU of people crashing on Endor ( http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Endor ) for thousands of years. That is one of the main issues with Star Wars in general is the lack of scientific advancement.

Evolution only happens if it needs to - for example, the T-Rex evolved very little over the span of it's existance because it was an apex level predator. Maybe Ewoks are the apex level predators of Endor's moon. Plus, in evolutionary terms, 4000 years is not that long. Modern humans have been around for ~200 thousand years - what did we do of note in the first 20 thousand years?

Always supported TOR. Have been playing it since the 2nd hour it came up during first day of early access. Have had a subscription since then not once letting it slip on either of my accounts. The addition of an ewok companion plus this routine of yet another daily area and rep grind. Has honestly really put me off from the game. I cancelled the sub on my second account and currently am strongly even considering cancelling the primary as well. Just really disappointed after going through the stuff coming with 2.3. Ewok companion seriously? About the only change or addition in the notes that I liked was the Ald WZ change.

In War - Victory.
In Peace - Vigilance.
In Death - Sacrifice.

apparently there will be the option to get it in the cartel market

petition for the ewok to be buyable via CC | 07.01.2013, 09:25 AM
Hey folks,

Just wanted to let you know that no petition is necessary, you will be able to acquire Treek via Cartel Market if you so choose. Having her be a part of the Legacy system allowed an avenue for players to get her without spending any of their Cartel Coins if they wanted!
