Patch 4.0.2 has been online now since three days ago. There are lots of new changes in Patch 4.0.2, here MmoGah.com will introduce those changes to all of you in detail.
First, Patch 4.0.2 adjusts the companion gift preferences for about 80% of the companions with some minor tweaks and many subscribers (who buy their SWTOR Gold from our site) have updated their companion influence guides with the new values. The big changes are everyone’s companion now has at least one gift they love (max influence) and some of the classic companions now take artwork type of gifts. There were some minor nerfs as well on some companions to reduce their preference for a gift from love to favourite.
Second, Patch 4.0.2 adjusts Cartel Market. The Republic Cartel Contraband Reputation vendor now offers all intended items. Treek's armor set is no longer granted on completion of her acquisition Mission, as companions no longer wear armor. Resolving an issue that would cause players to create a Level 1 Character after using a Start at 60 Token. Some Cartel Market Reputation items have had their bind rule changed to bind on Pickup as intended.
The following Cartel Market Color crystals have had their artifact permission requirement removed:
Advanced Lime-Green Eviscerating Crystal
Advanced Pink-Purple Eviscerating Crystal
Advanced Lime-Green Indestructible Crystal
Advanced Pink-Purple Indestructible Crystal
Advanced Pink-Purple War Hero's Crystal
Third, Patch 4.0.2 adjusts Classes and Combat. Fixing a General issue where players were unable to commit their Utility points in the Discipline window. Guardian’s and Vigilance’s Burning effects now properly spread to all targets damaged by Force Sweep or Vigilant Thrust if the affected target is defeated by the initial hit. Sentinel’s and Watchman’s Burning Sweep: Cauterize and Force Melt burn effects now properly spread to all targets damaged by Force Sweep if the affected target is defeated by the initial hit. The duration of Circling Shadows now matches the duration of the Deception Assassin's Induction.
Fourth, Patch 4.0.2 adjusts Flashpoints and Operations. Addresssing an issue where Companions could sometimes be defeated by the Lightbridge after the fight with the Skytrooper Praetorian. The FIX-4U Droids no longer get stuck when attempting to repair consoles during the Torque encounter. The Shoots Lasers Droid are now spawned at fixed points around the encounter area rather than being pets during the Torque encounter.
Fifth, Patch 4.0.2 adjusts Items and Economy. Crafting weapons introduced in Game Update 4.0 now have color crystal slots, as intended. Random world drop items no longer require Rise of the Hutt Cartel to equip. Numerous Armstech crafted items no longer require Underworld Trading materials and instead require Investigation materials. The craftable Biochem Implants Exarch Quick Savant, Adept, Initiative, Bulwark, and Bastion MK-26 Packages now have the correct stats. The Advanced Medpac given to new Start @ 60 Characters is now Bind on Pickup. The Bounty Hunter Crystal Vendors on either Fleet now sell the Outlander Boltblaster's Generator MK-4, Defiant Boltblaster's Generator MK-4, and the Exarch Boltblaster's Generator MK-4. The Locked Medium Elite Commendation Container has been renamed to Locked Medium Glowing Crystal Container. Names for items in the Mission “Hunger of the Vrblthers” on Nar Shaddaa now appear in French and German clients. The Enslaved Underwalker Decoration no longer drops from the Dread Palace, and is now found in the Dread Fortress. Hook sizes have been updated for the Jury-Rigged Battledroid, the Dread Forged Rancor, the Gree Core Guardian, and the Regional Annihilation Droid Decorations. The Ancient Rakata Alchemical Beast Decoration is now properly granted by the associated item. An Imperial and Republic version of a Generator Node Decoration have been added to the Warzone and Starfighter Decoration vendor. They are available for 750 Warzone Commendations. Red and Green Fortitude Crystals are now automatically learned by players when choosing the Artifice crafting skill. The weapons on the PvP Weapons vendor found on either Fleet no longer have default Hilts, Mods, or Enhancements. This also means that those weapons no longer have Expertise by default. The Signet Ring of Ancient Tion now costs 5 Common Data Crystals instead of 10 on the Companion Gift Vendor.
