After the scheduled maintenance today, Swtor 5.8 is coming in game with various changes & updates, including Swtor Izax boss, Conquest revamp, returning companions and more. In addition, the rewards from this week’s Conquest will be delayed due to the update.
Learn highlights of Swtor 5.8 patch notes
1. New Operation Boss Izax – The final boss of Gods From the Machine is here. The mightiest of the Iokath droid superweapons, Izax is capable of destroying entire fleets of warships. Defeating him will require tremendous power and skill, and you could read our Swtor Izax preview to know more.
2. Conquest Revamp – From a new interface to changes for Guilds of every size. The improved Conquest system with Swtor 5.8 now provides challenge, opportunity, and rewards for all Guilds.
3. Companion Return – Ashara Zavros and Vector Hyllus. Swtor Ashara and Vector are returning in Swtor 5.8. Ashara’s mission is on Voss, not much about Vector’s background story in the last few years yet. Both companions are class specific, which means only Inq/Agent can get them. The requirement for the character is to have KOTET completed.
4. Companion Romance: Arcann - A redeemed Arcann makes his feelings known to those who’ve given him a chance to atone for the evil deeds of his past.
5. Limited Time Izax Event – Players who defeat Izax on Veteran difficulty before launch of Swtor 5.9: The Nathema Conspiracy will receive a special legacy-based reward and an exclusive title with the launch of 5.9.
Conquest rewards grant delayed due to update 5.8
Besides the patch notes, Eric Musco also mentioned that players will likely not receive the rewards from this week’s Conquest, due to the large amount of changes coming to the Conquest system. The rewards are planned to grant to all players who earned them after Swtor 5.8, similar to the “mass-grant” previously.
