SWTOR Game Update 1.3 Preview: New PvP Additions
Game Update 1.3 brings some improvements to PvP, aswell as new items, schematics and vanity pets.
New PvP Mission (Free Recruit Gear)
With the Game Update 1.3, as soon as you get to level 50, you will have a new PvP mission called New Technology available at the Mission Terminal on the Imperial and Republic Fleets located in the Combat Training Quarter. The mission is not repeatable, it can only be done one time.
After you accept the mission, simply turn it in, at the same terminal and you will have to chose between the following rewards:
- Recruit Gear Box
- Recruit Credit Redemption Token
The Recruit Gear Box option depends on the class your character is. For example if you are a Juggernaut you can choose between Recruit War Leader’s Gear box and Recruit Vindicator’s Gear box.
These boxes contain the FULL set of Recruit Gear, and that means you have all items for example: weapon, ofhand, relics, ears, implants, etc.
The Recruit Credit Redemption Token can be sold at the vendor and you will receive 320,000 credits (the total cost of the Recruit set) so you can choose what items you want to buy or just keep the credits.
2 new vanity pets have been added to the PvP item vendors on Fleets.
Lawgriffarl – Requires Valor Rank 70 – Costs 1000 Ranked Warzone Commendations and 2000 Warzone Commendations.
Lobelisk – Requires Valor Rank 70 – Costs 1000 Ranked Warzone Commendations and 2000 Warzone Commendations.
New PVP Adrenal Schematic
Warzone Adrenals can now be crafted by Biochemists. The recipe can be bought with 75 Warzone Commendations from the PvP Items Vendor on the Fleet located in the Combat Training Quarter.
The recipe requires only grade 6 crafting materials, including a special PVP material called Dioxatrene-11.
DioXatrene-11 can be acquired as a reward from Grade 6 Crafting PVP Boxes:
New War Hero Implant (for healer Operatives and Scoundrels)

Pre-Season One Team Ranked Warzones:
Pre-Season One Team Ranked Warzones are now available! Teams of 8 level 50 players can use the “Queue Team Ranked” button in the Warzone queue window to queue for a Ranked Warzone match.
Ranked Warzones reward Ranked Warzone Commendations.
Teams receive their Team Rating after participating in 10 Ranked Warzone matches. This rating is adjusted at the end of every Team Ranked Warzone match based on win or loss and the ratings of all other matched players.
Leaving a Ranked Warzone before it ends counts as a loss. Declining an invitation once a match is made counts as a loss.
Players in the queue for a Ranked Warzone can queue for a normal Warzone at the same time. Entering a normal Warzone does not remove players from the Ranked Warzone queue. If a Ranked Warzone match is found while a player is in a normal Warzone, the match is reserved until the player finishes the normal Warzone, and other players in the reserved match will not be asked to join normal Warzones.
