The Gree have returned!  A sign of how frequent the event will run, or back just to stick it to "the heart of the swarm"?

You decide!

POSSIBLY introducing the Cathar as a playable species, we don't know yet.  Bioware says they'll be releasing new features over the coming months.

Subscribers get it for half-price and if anyone pre-orders by January 7th you get five days of early access.

It's anniversary time, folks.  Yup, one year ago we were counting down the minutes to when we'd get that magical email stating we could now log into the game servers.  It's been a year of good times and bad, updates and bug issues, meeting new friends and saying goodbye to old ones.

Bio-Ware wants your  memories, stories, and screenshots.  So get out there and celebrate a great 365 days of Star Wars Online Gaming!

Last night DarthGM finished the HK-51 storyline and unlocked a new companion.  Quoth the Darth, "It just wasn't a KotOR game until I had this wiseguy in my party..."

We here at the "Holocron Remnant" encourage you to go out and get your own HK- droid, and then drop a million credits (or 350 cartel coins) to unlock him for an alt.  It's a million credits per alt, but it's another companion (which can be a HUGE deal during Chapter One...I'm looking at you, Imperial Agent...) that grants a +1 Crafting Critical and +5 mission efficency to any such crew skill he performs. 

Just remember that when you unlock him, his level 50 gear is unuseable and you'll have to completely re-equip him if you're not 50, so make a friend with a cyber-tech and get him geared out.

Here's a very good write up on HK-51's abilities by Dufly
