Passionately Casual Ep. 30: Smart Water
AKA Where were we even going with this graphic?
A SWTOR Podcast for Unholy Alliance and Wookiee Mistake guilds on the Harbinger server. Our podcast is a proud member of MOG Nation!
The big announcement of the month is that the podcast now has a new home! We promise it will be quite operational when your friends arrive. You can now find us at passionatelycasual.com! Thank you, Jessie for the copious amounts of hard work that you put into getting the new site set up.
As for the episode, the cast is finally back together as Jessie joins us again! This week as we discuss the in-game changes that have gone live between game versions 5.1.1 and 5.1.3, and we discuss what is coming in 5.2. Larry also brings us In Character episode 4.
Remember to check the guild calendar on the website for the many events we have scheduled for the rest of March. WOG and WIP are going strong, as well as the Saturday ops group which will be focusing on more challenging content. Many impromptu activities are scheduled too, so if you’re a Twitter user and are interested, be sure to check in with a guild officer about being added to the UA/ WM Ops group chat. Also stay tuned to Discord chat and guild chat in game. We’re always up to something!
A lot is afoot in game these days. We are at 5.1.3 as of this recording, with 5.2 expected around the 11th of April. Here are some of the highlights:
- Tier 4 gear is coming for those Command rank 300+.
- Bolster in warzones is being set to 238.
- Bosses in operations will now drop gear more consistently.
- Tier 2 gear earned in PVP will be purchasable as the first set of tiered gear.
There are also some changes coming to tier 1 through tier 3 gear, so be sure to study up!
