Bad news and good news this morning, everyone!

The bad news is that maintenance has been extended.

The good news: today is Patch 1.0.1! This build was available on the Public Test Server right after launch, and is now ready for live play! Feast on the notes below.

With this update, the first of many for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, we have addressed several high-priority bugs. We’ve implemented fixes for those players affected by performance issues on Taris and have corrected the problem preventing some pending mission rewards from being accepted.

  1. Slicing nerfed (glad I mad my quick 150K before that happened to keep my toons in speeder trainings)
    War Zones nerfed … well the losing side needed something. i can honestly say 7K+ xp and 1000 credits for 15mins of losing effort seems a bit much for a level 20.

  2. RevanRules says:

    Hope they stopping almost every NPC having those training droids that attack you. Basically eliminating the epicness of our characters that every single NPC can bring out weapons.

    Our training droids from CE can’t even attack and a total waste yet the NPC ones can damage us.

  3. DrElementary says:

    Considering I’m halfway along Kira’s affection bar, I’m glad they fixed whatever bug there was.

  4. The whole reason that they had to nerf slicing is because they didn’t limit how high you could level it right off the bat at level 10 (or sooner if you just went to the station). No wonder there were large numbers of accounts with multiple slicing alts running missions constantly. At level 19 & 25, I have more then a few skills that are getting close to the maximum of 400 points.

    They should have done it up like just about every other MMO in that you can’t level crafting / gathering skills past certain points until your character level meets a minimum level requirement.

  5. well atleast they fixed the dc’ing problem …. oh no wait
    got dc’s 3 times already. before the patch 0 never had a dc in this game even in beta

    maybe they wanted to make it fair for everyone so everyone can randomly dc

    • I have DC’d multiple times too >.< mostly on Taris. During beta I had wonderful connection speed and not a single DC, but now I get one every 15 minutes or less. It's very, very frustrating.
      I have a very high speed router and internet connection, as well as a computer that exceeds all minimum computer requirements.

  6. Resources nodes are still bugged for me. Most I can harvest, but even after implementing this patch i’m unable to harvest and sometimes even see some resources. They appear on the map, but are unharvestible, invisible, or both.

    Also, Taris is still very buggy for me. I have been unable to level at a consistent pace on that planet due to the fact that every 15 minutes it crashes on me, and I have to reload the game.

    Anyone have any potential solutions?

  7. My concern about slicing is what happens at 400? I can understand the risk/occasional loss when you get a skill point.
    But at 400, you no have 30-50% of you missions for lockboxes that are showing (at least to my most recent 10 attempts) to be returning at a loss.

    • I’ve been keeping track of the 140 slicing missions I’ve done since the patch. While there is now a much greater chance of taking a loss on a mission, on average the missions are still profitable, especially since they can crit, and that profit does not include the schematics I can use or vendor on the GTN. It appears based on my sample size that the quality of the mission (Moderate/Abundant/Bountiful/Rich)doesn’t have much effect on the profit per minute (Rich missions give more money, but they also cost more money and take more time). In general, missions are netting me ~10-20 credits per minute per companion. Not an awesome return, but the 2 companions who would otherwise be sleeping on the ship are getting me ~1800 credits per hour that I wouldn’t otherwise have.
