Michael Bitton : Game Update 2.0: A Hive of 'Scum and Villainy'

Posted Feb 27, 2013 by Michael Bitton

BioWare recently pushed Game Update 2.0: Scum and Villainy to Star Wars: The Old Republic's public test server and we're breaking it all down for you in this week's SWTOR column.

Probably of interest to most players, Game Update 2.0 brings the level cap up to 55 and introduces a new skill for each of the game’s Advanced Classes. There have also been major changes to SWTOR’s talent trees and even an overhaul of the Alacrity stat that should make it a highly desirable stat for just about everyone. If you’re curious, Alacrity now buffs your resource regeneration rate and reduces the activation time of all abilities, including instant abilities.  It even affects the GCD if your Alacrity value brings the cast time of an ability (instant or otherwise) below the 1.5s GCD. It sounds like I’m definitely going to want to stack some of this stuff once the update goes live!
