EiF Patch Notes 10/18/2022

Here are the notes for the patch released on 10/18/2022, featuring the long-awaited return of the Exar Kun Holiday Instance:

Content

  • The Temple of Exar Kun has returned!
    • Reports of disappearing archeologists have begun to swirl around a dark temple on Yavin 4. Others whisper about a shade haunting the temple – a shade that must be confronted before the temple’s depths can be plumbed.
    • Three players are required to begin the instance. The instance can be run once per day, per character. Take care in the depths of the temple – there are no cloning centers available.
    • The Temple of Exar Kun will only be accessible for a short time during the Halloween season. Conquer it to acquire unique, limited-time weapons and items! New loot has been added for 2022!

Bug Fixes

  • Scattergun specials now feature subtitles in the skill tree
  • The Scavenger’s Lightsaber has been fixed and now recolors as intended
  • Center of being modifiers should now be properly added to agnostic lightsabers.

Empire and Remembrance Day Event – UPDATED for 2022

Join the community on Empire in Flames for this year’s celebrations of Empire Day and Remembrance Day! While once a commemoration of the foundation of the Empire, Empire Day is now also a day for loyal Imperials to mourn the loss of their Emperor. For the former members of the Rebellion, what was originally a day to honor soldiers fallen in battle in Remembrance Day now also celebrates the New Republic’s founding. Whether you fight for the Empire or the New Republic, players can listen to speeches, tear down or put up propaganda posters, and race across Endor or they can group up and join the PvE and PvP battlegrounds. Completing objectives will award you Empire/Remembrance Day coins, which can be used to barter for rewards including new schematics, air-speeders, and decoration items that haven’t yet been seen on the server. Unlike other holiday events, Empire Day allows you to participate in as many events as you want, as many times as you want. This means you can grind out all the coins you might need in the course of a couple of days, or take your time and earn them over the course of the event.

This year, Empire/Remembrance Day starts on July 7th and will run the entire month of July. Head on over to Kuat City on Kuat (for Imperials) or Hanna City on Chandrila (for NR) to get started.

Once you land at your respectively-aligned city, talk to your Event Coordinator for a quick run-down about the holiday, and the types of events available to you. Each Coordinator also has a BB-unit that you can speak with to check your Empire Day or Remembrance Day Coin balance, as well as redeem your earned coins for the available rewards.

Speak with Ingri if you’re NR, or Wulf if you’re Imperial.

Amidst the decorations and troops gathered in celebration, a handful of other NPCs are scattered about that will have more information on quests or activities you can participate in.
