Feb 072017

Join Jason, Mox and Ravanel as they get super excited about the latest news in SWTOR. Last week, the game gained five new uprisings, master mode for the Knights expansions and super clear new target circles. But that’s not all: the devs have announced new grind reducing changes to galactic command and Rav wins the supreme tinfoil hat for predicting the bosses of the upcoming War for Iokath raid.
