The first draft of the patch notes for the big upcoming patch are finally out.  Note that they run to 2 pages.

Among the many things (like a quieter C2-N2), note that for many classes all their skill points will be reset.  Make sure you re-spend them after the patch.

Just wanted to mention that the patch is scheduled to be released tomorrow, April 12.  For most people, the main thing you'll notice is that you can move things around in your UI, but there are a lot of other changes.  You may have to reallocate your skill points.  For those who have completed Act 1 on at least one character, the Legacy system will do more than just say "Coming Soon!".  There will be a Guild Bank introduced, we'll need to have Karhan online sometime to set it up (Conway can supply the funding for the first two bank tabs).

Some things will be disappearing.  If you had your heart set on a white lightsaber or white blaster bolts, you better hurry.  )

With many thanks to Conway for the funds, the guild bank is up and running! There's currently a tab for starter gear for alts/newcomers, and a tab for ship parts (and various other miscellany). There are some weekly withdrawal limits across the various guild ranks, but they're fairly generous, and mostly just there so that if someone gets hacked (heaven forbid), the real-life Scoundrel can't wipe us out completely. If you feel they're unjust, let me know and I'll consider upping them. All ranks should be able to see both tabs and withdraw some amount of goods from each.

Next up: maybe the GM will hit level 50 someday! ;)

Just a note, the bank is only accessible from the Fleet (it's in the room near the Light Side vendor).  Feel free to take what I've put in there, although if you do I'd appreciate an in-game mail so I know I need to replace it.  Just look at who crafted whatever, mail to that person.

There's a lot of new stuff in the patch, I'm still working my way through it.  One of the interesting things is that you can buy an item for your ship droid (good old C2-N2) that will greatly improve his crafting.  It can only be bought from the new astromech ship droid, a legacy unlock and wad of cash, but it seems that anyone can use the vendor to buy the droid item.  If you want to get the item for your C2 let me know.  It's 100K for the item, but it costs 1M to get the droid...so you are welcome to come onboard my ship to buy it.
