EiF Patch Notes 11/26/22 – “The Taanab Harvest, Week 2”

Content

  • The Taanab Harvest event has entered its second week!
    • Players who travel to the Taanab hex farms can speak with co-op president Bukrom in person, who will give players details.
    • The Taanab Harvest is a four-week event, with each week introducing a new phase with new missions, loot, and escalating danger.
    • Quest givers have a new set of missions for Week 2 as the harvest continues, with Norulac predations rising and the farmers racing against time to combat the threat.
    • Kari Saarek needs volunteers to whip militia recruits into fighting shape by taking them on patrols around the hex farm.
    • Jaa Haruss needs brave players to investigate reports of Norulac activity across Taanab.
    • Vinon Daivik is looking for travelers to track down contacts who may provide the Taanab farmers the materiel they desperately need to fight the Norulacs…for a price.
      • Special note: Vinon Daivik’s quest cannot be repeated this week.
    • Completing missions for a co-op leader will provide a single-time, unique prize, in addition to harvest coins. You can only earn one of these unique prizes per week. (I.e. if you earn Kari Saarek’s unique mission prize, you cannot earn Jaa Haruss or Vinon Daivik’s prize for this week!)
    • NOTE: Solia Maduel’s quests are disabled. Maybe next year.

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.

EiF Patch Notes 04/16/2022

Here are the notes for the patch released on April 16, 2022, debuting The Great Fashion Disaster!

Content

  • The Galactic Egg Hunt is on! Kari Saarek is coordinating this year’s Egg Hunt. Start by visiting Kari in Pandath on Taanab. This year’s egg hunt uses the new camtono for its egg containers.
  • The egg hunt this year has 98 eggs to be found, plus 15 additional eggs for completing the ski speeder race.

  • The Hutt Outpost on Rori has once again been occupied by the Hutts after driving out the stray NR forces.

Crafting

  • The Great Fashion Disaster is upon us.
  • All wearables (and recolorable furniture) have been moved to a unified color palette. Outfits should be much easier to coordinate colors.
  • Master artisans can now craft dye kits for clothing, armor, and furniture. To recolor an item, use the radial while an object is in inventory (along with a dye kit!) and a “recolor” option will appear.
  • Armor can no longer be recolored without a dye kit.
  • Electric-style lamps now cast white light instead of yellow.
  • Additional lighting color options are now available as alternate appearances when an architect crafts electric-style lighting – green, orange, purple, blue, yellow, and red lights are available (in addition to standard white).
  • A small puck-style light has been added to architect to accomodate more lighting options.

Player Cities

  • Chandrila is now properly available for player cities, using Corellia-style buildings.

  • If a player answers a holocomm message on its last ring cycle, they will no longer receive a “You have missed a holocomm” message.

  • Fixed combat walkers having their own AI. Again. Probably. Maybe. (Is this a meme yet?)
  • Vreni Island’s GCW spawns now properly depend on Corellia’s GCW status.
