About Legacy of the Sith
Legacy of the Sith builds on the dynamic story of Star Wars: The Old Republic and sends us on a Star Wars adventure to secure a planet important to our group as we uncover the ultimate plan of renegade Sith Lord Darth Malgus. In addition to numerous game comfort upgrades, the expansion also brings the new fighting styles function, which extends the SWTOR gaming experience with new options.
Legacy of the Sith leads us on the hunt for Darth Malgus on the water planet Manaan and other remote corners of the galaxy. The comprehensive update increases the maximum achievable player level by 5 to level 80. In addition, the toughest challenges to date in Star Wars: The Old Republic are introduced with new community missions, including a flashpoint in a grave on a mountain top on the remote planet Elom and include an operation on the wreckage of a research station in deep space.
About the expansion
The latest expansion includes the new Combat Styles feature that takes SWTOR’s customized Star Wars experience to a new level. With fighting styles, we fulfill our ultimate Star Wars fantasy by independently selecting a class story and combining it with skill sets from related tech or power user classes. Active, returning and new game ends can look forward to improvements in the creation of our next Star Wars character thanks to the revised character creation. In addition, updates to the object and equipment system and the streamlined class design add to the Star Wars: The Old Republic experience.
