With update 1.7 for Star Wars The Old Republic on the horizon, EA/Bioware has given new information on some of the new additions.
Players can discover the secrets of the Grey Secant, an ancient Gree starship that has suddenly appeared over the Western Ice Shelf of Ilum. From February 12 to February 26, visit the news terminals on Carrick Station or Vaiken Spacedock to begin the adventure. Advanced technology, including powerful weapons and armor, will be rewarded to the brave few who aid them.
Players can now earn Galactic Reputation by completing missions for various factions like the Gree, or the military divisions within the Republic or Empire. Players can progress through six ranks of prestige: Outside, Newcomer, Friend, Hero, Champion, and Legend. Reputation is also tied in with Legacy, so points and ranks are shared across all characters within that legacy.
