GCW Recruiter and Quartermaster Loot!

(Our feature today is a guest post by Demiurge. Well done and thank you!!!)

Galactic Civil War Rewards and You!

With the onset of Empire in Flame’s Galactic Civil War patches, players now have the opportunity to spend those hard earned faction points from PvE activities or War Fame gained from Invasion testing and upcoming PvP events.  The purpose of this Friday Feature is to familiarize players with the options available to them from their faction’s Recruiters (Faction Points) and Quartermasters (War Fame). Hopefully this information helps you make informed decisions concerning the items you are purchasing from these vendors.  Because most of the items purchased come in the form of schematics, there is no way to actually “see” what the finished product looks like. That’s where this Friday Feature comes in. We will be reviewing the rewards, so you don’t waste those precious points!

We will examine the rewards purchasable from your faction’s recruiters using regular Faction Points first.  Keep in mind all prices listed are non-smuggler prices.

Let’s examine the list of items available to Imperial players:

Armored AT-AT Pilot Bodysuit (1800 Faction Points)

Armored Imperial AT-AT Pilot Helmet (1800 Faction Points)

Imperial Stormtrooper Armor (Total Set = 23,400 Faction Points)

Imperial Assault Trooper Armor (Total Set = 23,400 Faction Points)

Imperial Scout Trooper Armor (Total Set = 23,400 Faction Points)

 

Now let’s take a look at the faction rewards offered by the New Republic Recruiter:

New Republic Trooper Helmet (1800 Faction Points)

New Republic Marine Armor (Total Set = 23,400 Faction Points)

New Republic Assault Armor (Total Set = 23,400 Faction Points)

New Republic Battle Armor (Total Set = 23,400 Faction Points)

 

3 Different versions of the A280 Firearm.  One rifle, one carbine, one pistol. Each version costs 5500 faction points and are energy damage types.

 

Now we will look at the new items introduced via faction quartermasters using War Fame.  Many of these items are available to both rebel and imperial factions. We will identify which are unique to a particular faction and which is available to all.  Again, let’s look at the Imperial rewards first.

Imperial Galactic Marine Armor (Total Set = 1,500 War Fame)

Battle Tested Stormtrooper Armor (Total Set = 1,000 War Fame)

Battle Tested Shocktrooper Armor (Total Set = 1,000 War Fame)

Battle Tested Scout Armor (Total Set = 1,000 War Fame)

(Entire set available.  This is obviously only two pieces of it…)

ARC-170 Flightsuit (75 War Fame)

Imperial Armored Duster (250 War Fame)

Imperial Galactic Marine Backpack (150 War Fame)

 

Now we will take a look at the items available specifically to New Republic forces.  

 NR Special Forces Armor (Total Set = 1,500 War Fame)

 Battle Tested Assault Armor (Total Set = 1,000 War Fame)

Battle Tested Battle Armor (Total Set = 1,000 War Fame)

Battle Tested Marine Armor (Total Set = 1,000 War Fame)

 + DIRT (Real Picture not available)

New Republic Armored Duster (250 War Fame)

NR Snow Trooper Backpack (150 War Fame)

 NR Flight Suit – Recolorable (75 War Fame)

 

Now let’s take a look at some of the items available to both sides.  These include houses, decorations, and a ton of new weapon options.

The Spire House (1,000 War Fame) – 3 Lots

The VIP Bunker (500 War Fame) – 1 Lot

The Commando Bunker (500 War Fame) – 1 Lot

Keep in mind, the Commando and VIP Bunkers are smaller, one room buildings.

A Bacta Tank (150 War Fame)

A Command Console (150 War Fame)

A Map Table (150 War Fame)

A TK Knuckler (250 War Fame) – ACID DAMAGE

A Polearm (250 War Fame) – ELECTRICITY DAMAGE

A One-Handed Sith Sword (250 War Fame) – STUN DAMAGE

A Two-Handed Sith Sword (250 War Fame) – COLD DAMAGE

A DLT19 – Heavy Blaster Rifle (250 War Fame) – ENERGY DAMAGE

A Prototype Sniper Rifle (250 War Fame) – ENERGY DAMAGE

A Legendary Blaster Rifle (250 War Fame) – ELECTRICITY DAMAGE

A Heavy Carbine (250 War Fame) – ACID DAMAGE

A Proton Carbine (250 War Fame) – COLD DAMAGE

A Bothan Carbine (250 War Fame) – ELECTRICITY DAMAGE

An Intimidating Pistol (250 War Fame) – KINETIC DAMAGE

A Legendary Pistol (250 War Fame) – ENERGY DAMAGE

An Insurgent Pistol (250 War Fame) – ENERGY DAMAGE

These are currently all of the items available to players.  Save your points and plan ahead/accordingly in order to outfit your characters however you see fit.  

Good Hunting!

Patch Notes: Client Patch 8/30/2017

The much anticipated CLIENT PATCH arrives tomorrow! Patch notes follow down below. The brand spanking new EiF Launcher will be available to load up the patch, as well! Instructions will be available. I’m sure you will all be grateful  I didn’t add my *squees* and *happy dances* throughout these notes, you’ll just have to guess at which ones are my favorites!

  • 4 new player races:
    • Devaronian Females
    • IG-100
    • Mirialans
    • Zeltron
  • New creature mounts have been introduced! Note that not all variants of a creature can necessarily be mounted – only the largest, toughest versions of some of these animals can carry a rider.
    • Narglatches
    • Gurrecks
    • Greater Sludge Panthers
    • Tusk Cats
    • Gualamas
    • Bordoks
    • Blurrgs
  • Entertainer Missions have been reworked using the new Fame system, which replaces the old Image Designer line in the Entertainer Profession. Entertainers with more fame can command higher payouts, particularly for gigs that require travel.
    • Fame-enhancing clothing and attachments will be coming at a future time.
    • Fame is not retroactive for already-established entertainers. The SWGEmu code that should force an update does not work, and we are investigating and will patch as soon as we have a solution.
    • Only a single entertainer mission can be taken at a time.
  • Munitions crafting has been re-added to the game. See the next Friday Feature to learn more about the Heavy Weapons revamp.
    • Weaponsmiths now have a number of new cores and components to craft to create heavy weapons.
    • Grenades, mines, and rocket launchers use explosive cores.
    • Flamethrowers and acid rifles use tanks.
    • Heavy beam weapons use capacitors.
    • Light lightning cannons use static cores.
  • Armor slicing has been re-added to the game.
  • Races that previously lacked customization now have basic morphs and palettes available, including:
    • Abyssin
    • Cerean
    • Duros
    • Gungan
    • Iktotchi
    • Kel Dor
    • Kubaz
    • Togruta
  • The first stage of the GCW has been implemented. All planets participating in the GCW now have factional troops present. (See this Friday Feature!) Planetary control scripting is still in process and has not yet been enabled, but is coming soon.
  • Port Jato, an underworld-themed player hub, can now be visited via friendly smugglers who take cash in advance. These smugglers generally don’t like being found anywhere near law enforcement, but can likely be found at the watering hole of criminal-infested hives of scum and villainy.
  • Devaronians and Kel Dor no longer appear headless when wearing hats or hoods.
  • Paintings now have backs.
  • Cats can now swim.
  • Ubese armor jackets now correctly offer chest protection.
  • Two-strap bandoleers now use the correct color palette.
  • Up to six missions can be taken from a standard mission terminal.
  • BER rates on harvesters have been changed from pre-CU BER calculations to NGE BER calculations.

One Happy Twi’lek!

Friday Feature 8/18/2017 – Teaser!

Halyn’s been doing a lot of teasing about the GCW lately. He’s been tossing up pictures on Discord with little explanation of what we are seeing. If you scrutinize them, you might begin to see some of what he’s got planned. One awesome thing is he is having a great time creating the GCW! It’s going to be unique to EiF and loads of fun! Even for us non-PvPers!

Enjoy and see what you can discover with the pics below!

One of the pictures is a tease, but not with the GCW.
