Quality of Life Changes Included in Star Wars: The Old Republic’s 1.4 Update

Posted on September 20, 2012 AT 09:27am

Testing of Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s 1.4 update is well underway and it should be hitting live servers within the next couple of weeks, but it isn’t just about the major additions like the new Operation and gear, there’s also a few little changes being introduced to make player’s lives a little easier.

The changes include the Group Finder now teleporting you back to your original location at the end of an instance, at the moment it simply dumps you back outside the flashpoint. There’s also a delay for certain Bind on Equip items of up to two hours, this is to prevent accidental purchases or greeding something that you didn’t mean to.

Also being added in 1.4 is the ability to show your character’s mood via facial expressions, while it may not mean much to the average player, role players will love this small addition. Finally there are a few companion customization changes including a match to chest feature and the ability to hide companion head slots, two features that have been requested since launch.

What do you think of these additions? let us know in the comments below.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
