Photo-Receptor Focus on: Terror from Beyond

By Maer

Yay! I got to see the new Operation, Terror from Beyond, with my new sixteen-man raid team. First impressions are very favorable and best of all? I got to see color! There’s a very cool effect partway in that I thought was very clever.

It seems that the Black Hole commendations dropped by bosses in Story Mode operations have been sucked into some powerful vortex from which nothing can escape, not even light. While not revealed in the initial patch notes, it was soon discovered that the bosses in Story Mode Explosive Conflict were not dropping Black Hole commendations any more. BioWare Senior Support Coordinator Allyson Berryman quickly chimed in, promising to look into whether the issue was caused by a bug or if it was an intentional design change. She quickly responded back to the community, indicating that it was indeed an intentional change:

“I do have an update on this issue. This change was intentional, and we’ll be adding it to the patch notes. Bosses in Story Mode Operations no longer drop Black Hole Commendations in Game Update 1.4. Thanks to everyone who brought this up, and we apologize for the confusion over it.”

This includes Terror from Beyond’s Story Mode. As of 9/28/12, the patch notes have been updated to indicate the removal of Black Hole commendations.

Congratulations on reaching level 50 and beating Star Wars: The Old Republic! Not so fast! For some, reaching level 50 is just the beginning of what is known as the ‘end game’ content. I’m sure you’ve heard those words tossed around or perhaps you haven’t but it is known as ‘raiding’ or, to be more specific, ‘Operations’ in the world of TOR. This is the subject that many people get up in arms over and, while we can go into that subject a great deal, I’ll leave it for another time. Today I’d like to talk about how does one get ready for an Operation in terms of gear.

Highlighted Guild

  • Impetus Norvegicus – Sith Empire Guild

There are things in SWTOR a person might not like, but one area Bioware did get from the beginning was the worldwide appeal of Star Wars. They know their base is not just North America, like I sometimes forget. A great example on this was at the Guild Summit. They invited several guilds from around the world, including the Norwegian guild, Impetus Norvegicus. It never ceases to amaze me just how many people worldwide are truly dedicated Star Wars fans. That is one thing that really struck me about this guild…they really do love Star Wars. We will meet Aalen and find out how this devotion led to their guild and how they play SWTOR.
