wallpaper_star_wars_the_old_republic_

This week I am a happy player because Bioware fixed a number of bugs dealing with the cover system for Agents and Snipers and they fixed the annoying bug where if you select for “Show Sith Corruption” to be off it used to not stay that way. It also looks as if they made a number of other fixed to the game which should make it even more polished.

Here are the full notes:

 

General

  • Guilds that are currently leaderless will have an Officer chosen and promoted to Guild Leader.

Sith Inquisitor

      • The Darth title is now properly granted to Sith Inquisitors.
