Incoming Patch Highlights - Star Wars: The Old Republic - MMORPG.com

Bioware has posted the patch notes for next week's Star Wars: The Old Republic update. MMORPG.com's Mike Bitton has graciously combed through the notes to give us the highlights of big changes coming down the pike:

Biochem
  • All Energized, Exotech, and Rakata adrenals and stims now require 400 Biochem for use.
  • The Exotech Medpac is now named “Exotech Med Unit.” Its overall healing has been reduced and is now in line with similar level medpacs, and it temporarily increases the maximum health of its targets. Use of this item now requires 400 Biochem.
  • The amount healed by Rakata Medpacs has been reduced. This item now additionally increases maximum health briefly. Use of this item now requires 400 Biochem.
Cybertech
  • Wynz-Tek grenades now require 400 Cybertech for use.
  • Wynz-Tek Grenades have had their damage reduced to bring them more in line with grenades of similar level.
  • The Wynz-Tek Firestorm grenade’s damage has been reduced to bring it in line with grenades of similar level. It now deals damage every 3 seconds over 12 seconds.
Bioware has also posted an explanation regarding the changes noted above that is worth time reading on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic forums.
