For the fans of Star Wars: The Old Republic, you’ll be glad
to hear that the 1.7 update, Return of the Gree is now being deployed. Major
features of this update include a new in-game event, “Relics of the Gree” which
will be happening on the world of Ilum.
The new “Relics of the Gree” event will focus around the
Western Ice Shelf on the planet of Ilum, with the arrival of an ancient and
mysterious Gree vessel call the Gray Secant. Opportunities to earn new, sweet
gear comes with this event, along with facing down a powerful enemy within the
ship. The special game event will be happening from today through February 26th,
but the event will be repeated again later, during the course of the year.
This update will also include the new reputation system,
which will allow characters to earn a reputation with various organizations involved
in this galactic struggle. Titles, as well as daily and weekly events will
allow you to accrue reputation levels as well as reputation points which can be
spent with new special vendors for equipment and weapons. Additionally,
reputation will also carry across your legacy, so alternate characters you may
be playing will also accrue these reputation levels and points. Free-2-Play
accounts will benefit from this system, but fully subscribed characters will
obviously see a bonus in accruing these accolades.

Gree Event Blog, as well as the upgrade schedule notice.

Jedi. See you in world PVP!
