    Mysteries of the Force
    Start your journey to becoming a powerful Jedi, constrained by the era of the Galactic Empire, which poses unique challenges as a thriving Force Sensitive community to take in a youngling for training is nonexistent.

Discovery of The Force will require exploration on group and solo adventures throughout the ground and space. Everything encountered along the way, from artifacts and horticulture to creatures and conclaves, will play a role in your saga.

    Patch Notes:

    Combat

    • General
      • Damage over time effects will proc at the following rates
        • Bleed - every 8 seconds
        • Poison - every 10 seconds
        • Disease - every 20 seconds
        • Fire - every 5 seconds
      • Fixed an issue preventing a player from using certain commands and skills while stunned.
      • Enabled weapon-specific damage exotics.
      • Increased the effectiveness of healing potency exotics.
      • Increased the impact of accuracy when your accuracy rating is superior to your opponent’s defense.
      • Reintroduced state recovery skills into the game! You can now clear your blind, dizzy, and stun states if you have the appropriate recovery skill.
    • Accuracy
      • Locomotion (movement) and Posture (physical positioning) now have an effect on Accuracy and Defense rolls. The following is a list of different posture and movement bonuses or penalties. Players will want to consider their accuracy from skill tapes + their bonus accuracy based on posture and movement multiplied by what type of weapon they are holding. Then the opposite can be rolled for your defense. Weapon multipliers are:
        • Pistols / One-Hand / Unarmed x 1.25
        • Carbines / polearms x 1.5
        • Rifles / Two-Hand x 1.75
        • Heavy Weapons / Flamethrowers x 2
    • Attack Speed
      • Adjusted the speed cap of every weapon type, so 0.5 is no longer the hard speed cap. Instead, they are as follows:
        • 0.8 modified for Teras Kasi / Unarmed
        • 0.9 modified for flamethrowers
        • 1.0 modified for pistols and 1-handed weapons
        • 1.15 modified for carbines and polearms
        • 1.3 modified for rifles and 2-handed weapons
        • 1.45 modified for heavy weapons
      • The Adrenal Boost skill from a Doctor, and the Double Time ability from Squad Leader, will reduce your combat speed by 0.25 and 0.5, respectively. This will not change your weapon-modified speed, instead, it will reduce your cooldown timers. Your cooldown timer is calculated as your modified attackspeed + your ability cooldown. Your execute timer is your modified attack speed + the execution time of the ability.
    • Battle Fatigue
      • The Battle Fatigue mechanic has been implemented. Battle Fatigue is generated over time while engaged in combat and produces negative effects on your character based on the amount of fatigue.
      • Your HAM (Health, Action, and Mind) regeneration will be depleted when you reach 200 Battle Fatigue by a rate of 0.25% per point, up to a maximum reduction of 25%.

      • Combat Medic, Master Medic, and Doctor now have a new skill modifier, "healing shock," in their trees that mitigates the effects of Battle Fatigue on their healing.
      • You can heal Battle Fatigue in the following ways:
        • /sit anywhere to rest: 4 points per 10 seconds
        • /sit in a camp: 10 points per 10 seconds
        • Watching an entertainer: 16 points per 10 seconds
        • Watching an entertainer in a camp: 26 points per 10 seconds
    • Death Cybernetics
      • A bug preventing cybernetics from properly attaching to your character when you rolled for one after cloning has been resolved.

    Patch Notes
    Publish 1.1: Bejeweled (July 8, 2023)


    The server was taken down for maintenance today, and an update was applied. Be sure to close the game and run your launcher. The update notes are as follows:



    NOTE: Our Publish 1.1 deviates from our Project Roadmap. We will be releasing a new roadmap in the next few days.

    • AddedThe exclusive and mysterious Menagerie of the Bestine Humanities Society has opened across from the Bestine Museum. Join the Society by speaking to Chelsie Tryst, the Member Services Manager, via a quarterly membership fee (currently waived) to access exclusive art shows, a private lounge with exclusive performances, and special vendors.
      • Added A new vendor, Dipus Tittles, a Galactic Publicist, can be found inside the Menagerie. Dipus sells deeds awarding you a custom title.

      • AddedThe Menagerie Art Gallery will periodically feature a rotation of new artwork. Players can bid on the auction of an original painting (denoted with an [1/1] in the name and a special indicator in the description), of which there will only ever be one, or can purchase a reproduced print for a nominal fee.
        • New artwork is added periodically. Visit the club to see if new artwork is available. No announcements will be made when new artwork is up. It’s all about who you know. The first artwork is expected to drop later this month.

    Combat

    Attributes

    • ChangedThe core attributes now have different weights and diminishing returns applied in most combat situations. The soft cap is still 250, but beyond those values, the diminishing returns reduce impact at a lower rate. The following reflects the base impact of each stat, before diminishing returns at 250:
      • Melee General (Strength)
        • Melee/Lightsaber Speed: 0.33 per point (~0.16 seconds per 100)
        • Defense from Melee/Lightsaber: 0.25 per point
        • Accuracy with Melee/Lightsaber: 0.25 per point
      • Ranged General (Precision)
        • Ranged Speed: 0.33 per point (~0.16 seconds per 100)
        • Defense from Ranged: 0.25 per point
        • Accuracy with Ranged: 0.25 per point
      • Defense General (Agility)
        • Defense: 0.33 per point
        • State Resist: 1% per hundred
        • Healing Efficiency: 0.5 per point
      • Opportune Chance (Luck)
        • Accuracy: 0.33 per point
        • Critical Hit Reduction: 1% per 100
        • Critical Hit Chance: 1% per 100
        • Healing Efficiency: 0.5 per point
        • Medical Combat Speed: 0.33 per point
      • Toughness (Constitution)
        • 2 HP per point
        • State Resist: 1% per hundred
      • Endurance (Stamina)
        • 1 Mind per point
        • 1 Action per point
        • 0.1% H/A/M regen per point
    • Fixed An issue that applied an improper cap on health modifications from armor.

    Mechanics

    • Changed Adjusted how minimum and maximum weapon damage affects the calculation of final weapon damage. Damage now scales towards the minimum if your target's defense is higher than your accuracy, and scales towards the maximum the higher your accuracy is compared to your target's defense.
    • Changed The Hit-Chance Formula (i.e., your likelihood to hit or miss your target during a combat roll) has been updated so that actions taken during combat have a higher impact (e.g., your state, posture, and locomotion), and miss chance is more in the player's control. For more detailed information about this change, check out our Developer Diary. Note the following, especially:
      • PvP attacks have a base accuracy bonus of 250.
      • PvE attacks have a base accuracy bonus of 50.
      • Accuracy and Defense that come from builds (SEAs, equipment bonuses, skill tree bonuses, foods, buff items) all begin to hit diminishing returns at 350 points.
    • Changed Ability bonuses are no longer impacted by diminishing returns and will have a higher impact on accuracy.
    • Changed Buffs/Debuffs that affect movement have changed behavior. Now, Stuns and Roots will all share an internal recourse timer that reduces their duration if used in quick succession. Snares fired within 1 minute of another, and Roots within 2 minutes, will have a shorter duration the closer they were to the last Snare or Root.
    • Changed Damage Over Time Absorption skill mods now undergo diminishing returns after 25 points (which grants 25% absorption). At 100 points of absorption, this will now reduce damage taken by approximately 50%.
    • Fixed Abilities with an Action/Mind cost now effectively have a flat cost instead of a % of total Action/Mind cost. Therefore, increasing your total Action/Mind will now actually allow you to use more abilities before it runs out.
    • Fixed Reordered how flat damage modifiers are applied so that they're actually flat
    Misc.

    • Changed The overall damage of all player combat abilities has been reduced by approximately 20%, and healing abilities are being reduced by approximately 30%. We are taking the opportunity of this combat update to reset values to be more historically accurate with the CU, and account for some of the damage creep from NGE and Restoration changes. Any profession-specific damage updates (for example, a 24% damage buff) are relative to last patch as if it also had this reduction in place.
    • Changed The rate of natural battle fatigue generation and the buildup from the Infect ability has been doubled.
    • ChangedBattle Fatigue now recovers at increased rates:
      • Using /sit will decrease battle fatigue by 10 points every 10 seconds
      • Using /sit in a camp will decrease battle fatigue by 16 points every 10 seconds
      • Watching an entertainer will decrease battle fatigue by 20 points every 10 seconds
      • Watching an entertainer in a camp or cantina will decrease battle fatigue by 30 points every 10 seconds
    • Fixed Heavy weapon exotic modifications now properly give damage bonuses.
    • Fixed A bug that caused the Demolition Shot ability to improperly affect Pets has been resolved.
    • Fixed A bug that caused Armor Break Slices to not apply their proper mitigation values has been resolved.
    • Fixed A bug preventing Global Cooldown from applying to combat abilities granted from Cybernetics has been resolved.
    • Fixed Several issues with Critical Chance calculations that prevented certain skill mods (like the Ranged/Melee Crit chance on weapons) from being applied properly. Your critical chance should now accurately be represented in your Skill Sheet.
    • Fixed The Action Cost Reduction Inspiration buff no longer eliminates the entire action/mind cost of healing abilities.
    • Fixed Issues with Critical Strike and Headshot that caused them to lack a global cooldown and prevented their non-improved abilities from doing the correct damage have been resolved.
    States

    • ChangedStates (Stun/Blind/Dizzy) are no longer impacted by diminishing returns and will have a higher impact on accuracy.
      • Blind now reduces accuracy by 150.
      • Dizzy now reduces accuracy by 75 and mind regen by 20%.
      • Stun now reduces defense by 90 and accuracy by 40.
    • Changed Blind/Dizzy/Stun recovery now uses 500 action and has a base 1-second global cooldown.
    • Fixed Several abilities that were unusable while stunned are now usable again
