New Features Since NDA Lift

It has been a hectic time for us since the NDA lift. Bar the fact that we had no warning about the NDA going away (although, when you think about it, we should have suspected it by now) we still managed to release a lot of content just within the first few hours of NDA drop. I think we were first to publish quest information on the internet, including those huge database sites out there. In the meantime we have been working hard to show you several new features on the site. Here’s a list of what we were able to provide so far:

  • Updated Skill Tree (Talent) Calculator: All classes have had their trees updated with the latest skill information as well as new functionality. You can now reset all points or just points of a prticular tree and right click to remove point functionality is working properly now.
  • Datacron locations with screenshots have been added for all starting planets, Coruscant and some for Taris. We are working on adding more.
  • Companion information has been updated for all companions including crafting bonus stats (which are still in this latest beta build). We have also added the world exclusive information of which gifts what companion prefers the most and you can check that out on individual Companion pages.
  • We added the Lore entries from the in-game Codex. There are lore objects scattered around planets in The Old Republic. Collecting these will update your Lore section of the Codex (kind of in-game encyclopedia). We though it would be interesting for the players to see coordinates and images of particular lore objects you can collect on each planet and that is what our Lore Objects page is for
  • We will be showing the beta version of our Crafting Crew skills page today. There is an alpha version already available, but we have mined more data and we will be uploading that change in the matter of hours.

All in all, not bad for two people and 6 days of work :). We hope to bring you more in last few days left before launch.

    I noticed there is alot of missing companion crew skill information.

    T7-01 has no crew skill info.
    Aric Jorgan has +2 Critical Diplomacy Underworld Trading (It should be just +2 Diplomacy)
    3 of the trooper companions all have the same crew skills: +5 Critical Armormech, +1 Critical Underworld Trading. This applies to Tanno Vik, Elana Dorne, and Yuun.
    Some companions do not have whether it is a Critical or Efficiency bonus listed for their crew skills.

      Thank you very much for pointing this info out. We hope that people will do just as you have done and bring this information to our attention so we can get them fixed. Thx 🙂

      At this moment we are working on Codex, and I hope today it will be completed. Our idea is to cover all quests with screenshots. Bonus quests are usually part of some other quest usually mission quests and we try to add that information too.
