Game System: Group Finder

Game Update 1.3 brings a Group Finder tool that will help you quickly form groups to take on the many Flashpoints and Operations in The Old Republic™. You will be able to select your preferred role within a group, as well as the type of content that you and your friends want to tackle. whether it’s Flashpoints, Warzones, Operations, or Planetary Heroic Missions.

Game System: Legacy Perks

Allies expands on the Legacy System by adding new bonuses which will allow you to travel the galaxy and customize your gaming experience. This includes Advancement Perks that grant you experience bonuses for taking part in Warzones, Flashpoints, or Space Missions. Some Legacy Perks will even grant you extra experience for continuing a character’s story!

Other Legacy Perks that you can unlock include a spawnable item repair droid, the ability to pilot speeders at level 10, and a number of bonuses for your Companion which increase their affection, improve their item crafting abilities, and decrease the time Companions spend selling items to vendors.

Game System: Adaptive Gear

Game Update 1.3 will allow you to coordinate with your allies and dress up as a band of Sand People or a squad of Republic pilots to tackle any of the exciting missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Essentially, any social gear in the game can now be adapted to match your character’s combat gear, fusing it with the corresponding armor bonuses and adding slots for your best armor modifications.

Game System: Augment Unlocks

For players interested in keeping their gear optimized, Allies offers the ability to craft and sell kits that unlock an augmentation modification slot, previously only obtainable when achieving “critical” success while crafting. Players can now add an augmentation slot to any piece of equippable gear, making it easier to dress.
