I hope it's one holo statue per character so I can train whilst in the field when i level up. I liked the video , especially the sail barge. One thing i have realised ( without getting into too many spoilers ) is that when you end chapter 3 there are many choices at the end for characters and I am now wondering if all those choices are incorporated into the planet Makeb ? If so then that will be quite diverse and have different choices on the planet. You see I want the continuation of class stories but if what i mentioned earlier happens then at least I won't be too bored playing the planet on all my characters. For $10 for subbs it's cheap and I might actually be cheerfull.

Cheers,

BadOrb.

 

My guess you would that you get the itens on all characters since thats how it works with ce items and a pet they gave away awhile ago and the founder title

Pre-order Rise of the Hutt Cartel to receive exclusive new in-game items!

Today BioWare and LucasArts are excited to announce that all players who pre-order Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ - Rise of the Hutt Cartel will receive an exclusive title and two new in-game items* once the Digital Expansion launches:

  • The Dr. Oggurobb Hutt Holostatue: Train under the illustrious Hutt scientist Dr. Oggurobb with this portable training device that he created in his own image.
  • "Scourge of the Hutts" Title: Republic and Imperial forces that adorn this title will be revered across the galaxy.
  • The Makrin Seedling Mini-Pet: Get your very own Makrin Seedling to follow you around and creep out your enemies! Possessing bark-like skin and grass-like nerve-rich tissues that blend in perfectly with Makeb’s environment, the Makrin Seedling has a distinguishing and eerie look!
The in-game items and title listed above are only available to players that pre-order the Digital Expansion. All players that have already pre-ordered Rise of the Hutt Cartel will also receive these in-game items when the Digital Expansion launches this Spring. Players that pre-ordered Rise of the Hutt Cartel by January 7, 2013 11:59PM CT // 5:59AM GMT will also automatically receive these in-game items plus 5 days Early Access**.

The original offer was the special items until 01/07/13. Now they have extended it until the expansion comes out and thrown in some early access. Wonder why it changed?

I didn't buy the expansion when it was first announced because it seemd they were trying to force the sales into a 'crunched' period of time. Someone here mentioned buying with CC. When it was first announced they said it wasn't going to bee CC purchasable. Just RMT. Did that change? CC I might do. RMT..no....

The original offer was 5 days early access, now they added items for all who pre-order. Early access is only for those though who pre-ordered before 1/7/13

It looks like BioWare prepares for a serious testing on PTS. There is a new option in your account, which will be available when PTS will open, so you can copy your characters there. One less thing to complain about :)

About time :) Great news.

Re: PTS Character Copy On Your Account Page | 01.23.2013, 01:29 PM
As many of you may notice when you log into your account page on swtor.com, there is a new section for “PTS Character Copy”. We’ll be opening up Public Test Server for play testing soon and this link is open in preparation for this. For now, although it will appear to perform all of the actions required to copy a character, the system will not be functional until the Public Test Server is opened. That is, you cannot copy your characters onto PTS until PTS is opened up. Thanks!

Can't wait for this. :)

Been leveling up my alts so I can hit Makeb with most of them.

Having new areas to run around and explore will be nice. I am hoping that Bioware puts this up for testing soon.

I'm hoping that Bioware took their time to make sure that Makeb really stands out. Some of the planets like Tattoine look good but others in game are really bland and look like they were rushed.

I agree. The feel of a planet can make such a difference with how the game feels in general.

There Is Always Hope!

That's a nice read. After reading about the Hutts as a rising force in the galaxy, it would seem to me to be the perfect time to allow them to be a playable third faction in the game.

I agree, unless devs decide to destroy Hutts on Makeb. It would be a nice introduction to third faction. Smugglers and bounty hunters, rogue jedi and greedy Siths would find a nice home there LOL

The only reason for them not to do it is because that would probably make PVP balancing a nightmare. The hutt faction would basically get the best classes from both factions and pretty much rule warzones and Ilum.

Personally, I had hoped the Mandalorians would be a third faction.

I highly doubt there would be a third faction though. On the PVE side, all the starter planets are set in stone. (I don't believe Makeb is adding a new class or race, not even the Cathar) And the stories light side/ dark side system is already coded. (With little attention paid to the grey points.)

On PVP, everything is like the WoW battleground system. A 2 faction system with limits to participants designed to address faction imbalances. Again, not seeing room for a third faction.

One could hope though.
