New Conquest System

Over a month ago, SWTOR made the announcement they were going to be changing how conquest worked. They said they would be increasing the number of missions and would have separate lists depending on the level of the character so that conquest wasn’t mostly endgame content anymore. I was curious to see how they would make the changes so as soon as the update finished installing I logged into my bounty hunter and immediately made over 7,ooo points! I didn’t even do anything!

All I did was accept the conquest rewards from last week and the materials I’d sent my comps to get before logging off the day before. Admittedly, that many points may have had something to do with the double xp event, but they did seem to add an awful lot of strange missions to the list.

There was a reward for having my companion sell junk! Seriously, I received conquest points for selling junk? They also added taking a taxi, gaining a level, giving companions gifts, assigning a utility point, and so on. It was very strange to say the least. I’m really not sure what to think about some of the stuff they added. I still can’t believe I was actually given points for selling junk. I really don’t know how to react to that one in particular.

I do like how they revamped the UI for objectives. What now pops up when you achieve your objectives is far more eye catching than the previous look. All though truthfully it was a little annoying after awhile having that thing pop up every few minutes because I was constantly achieving a goal without realizing it was even one, *coughsellingjunkcough*.

I have no idea if they intend to keep the conquest as is or tweak it later on. I honestly think we can do without some of the things like taking a taxi or selling junk. At least it provided some laughter. My guild mates and I got a kick out of some of the objectives, especially selling junk. I’m sorry. I just can’t seem to let that one go. I am completely and utterly flabbergasted by it.

  1. I love how similar our experiences of this have been, from the surprise to get points seemingly for logging in to everyone in guild laughing about getting points for selling vendor trash… 😅
