A SWTOR Podcast for Unholy Alliance and Wookiee Mistake guilds on the Harbinger server. Our podcast is a proud member of MOG Nation!

Happy 2017, everybody! Our first podcast of the new year features a fabulous interview with Miranda Blu (@Miranda_Blu), a blogger and “possibilitarian” who has a passion for healthy mindsets, healthy habits, and healthy eating -and she’s a gamer to boot! (Trust us, we grilled her on all three).

Companion Date Night
Companion Date Night

We have a lot going on as the new year gets started:

We had an in-game social event Saturday night (January 14th). We brought our fave companions and showed off their dance moves!

Wednesday fun nights are now a go! Join us for flashpoints, PVP and whatever other social activities the group decides to undertake.

The next HM prep operation is Saturday, June 14th at 8 PM PST (11 PM EST) right after the companion date night social. Check the guild calendar for details. Also remember that the Suicide Squad ops team is interviewing potentials. Details are on the website.

WOG started again last Friday and continues to be the fun-filled, easy-going ops night it has always been.

Game News

The deployment of the 5.1 patch is coming January 24th. It will feature five new Uprisings and Master Mode versions of all chapters in KotFE and KotET. Gear drops are also coming back to ops runs. Check out this post by Eric Musco for more details.

Star Wars News

It looks like the word is out that Woody Harrelson is jumping in on the new young Han Solo film!

We can’t believe that Rogue One’s launch date has come and gone. But that doesn’t stop us from starting the Episode VIII countdown! 336 days left at the time of recording.

And we touched briefly on the CGI version of Tarkin in Rogue One, but we didn’t discuss it in depth so as not to spoil it for those who haven’t seen it yet. More on this next episode. For now, here’s how they did it.
