Star Wars: The Old Republic Column: More KOTOR in SWTOR in 1.7.2
BioWare is deploying Cartel Packs to Star Wars: The Old Republic in groupings of shipments. All the packs released from the launch of F2P in November until the last pack released a couple of weeks ago comprise 'Shipment One'. With yesterday's patch, the packs offered in 'Shipment One' as well as the level 43 one-off chest pieces offered in the Cartel Market were essentially retired and this also marked the beginning of 'Shipment Two'.
The two new packs introduced with 1.7.2 are the Regulator and Enforcer Contraband Cartel Packs. These packs are themed around the upcoming Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion and you'll be able to find an array of underworld styled goods in them. This includes arguably the most amazing set of mounts in the game, the Cartel Recreation and Luxury Skiffs. You basically get to lay back on your own private skiff while a droid drives you around. Seriously. And if that weren't decadent enough? The Luxury Skiff also features a floating bowl of grapes that your character will casually reach into, grab a grape, toss into the air, and then catch with his mouth. I know those pod racer mounts were a huge success, but these are bar none the most amusing mounts I've seen in Star Wars: The Old Republic so far. There is one other new mount that is worth noting, but we'll talk about that a bit later.
