🎉 December 14th: Patch 7.0 - Legacy of the Sith 🎉
🎉 December 20th: 10 Year Anniversary Celebrations Begin 🎉
🎉 January: R-4 Anomaly Operation Arrives 🎉


SWTOR celebrates it's 10 year anniversary on 20th December 2021 and because they know it's a big deal to reach double digits they are holding an entire year of celebrations. What makes this even cooler is that the celebration period covers two of our own anniversaries:

We're just a few months away from reaching 10 years which is already a huge accomplishment and you should all be very proud of yourselves. Thank you for everything big and small that you've done to make this the guild that it is today.

To make our journey to the 10th year extra fun, we will fully embrace the SWTOR year of celebrations by taking everything learned over the last decade to make this one of the most special years in the game's history. I have already planned several celebration events across the next 10 months starting this December:

Celebration & Holiday Events

Play well and have fun!

⭐️ Patch 7 Renown, Character Leveling & Gearing ⭐️

Legacy of the Sith raises the character level to 80, introduces several tiers of gear and archives the renown system. We've implemented a three stage plan to help you get sorted for patch 7.0 and the R-4 Anomaly. 👾

_______________________________________________________________________________________


Stage 1: Renown Boosting
Join our special Renown Boosting events to get yourself the cool achievement titles before they get archived when patch 7.0 arrives on 14th December 🚫

10 Achievements: Legacy->Advancement->Renown
  • Title: Limitless - Reach renown 999
  • Title: Renowned - Reach renown 100 for each class to get 8 unique Renowned titles
  • Title: Everybody Knows My Name - Reach renown 100 with all classes
Our Complete Renown Booster Event Series

_______________________________________________________________________________________


Stage 2: Character Speed Leveling
Our Conqueror team will help you reach level 80 with our special Heroic Power Leveling event series:


_______________________________________________________________________________________


Stage 3: Gearing
With patch 7.0 all the current raids are branded as "Legacy Operations" and you won't be able to enter any of them until you reach level 80. After we've helped you get to the max character level we have a series of special gearing events to get you ready for the new "R-4 Anomaly" raid in January:

Life Enhancers
Once the patch drops we will work towards rebuilding a fresh stock of the new top level single use stims, medpacs, adrenals and grenades for our guild bank Life Enhancer vaults. As a Christmas bonus we will also aim to provide one set of reusables for every member of our progress raid teams. 🎁

Level 76 Set Bonus Warning
All set bonuses on your current gear will stop working when you reach level 76. The set bonus feature has been moved to the two implant slots as "Legendary Items".

New Gear
There are 4 types of gear that drop:

  • Conquest - Decurion
  • Flashpoints - Master Mode: Noble Decurion / Veteran Mode: Elite Decurion
  • Operations - Story Mode: Tionese / Veteran Mode: Columi / Master Mode: Rakata
  • PvP/GSF - Thyrsian
Although each content area drops different gear types, you can wear it in all content. The only differences are the vendor you buy them from and the source for the currency/materials required to get them. You can read more about the gear in Swtorista's PTS 7.0 gear guide.

New Gear Levels
318: Trash Gear > Drops before level 80 > Legacy Operations balanced for 318
320: Trash Gear > Drops from level 80 > You can't get 320 or above until you reach level 80!
322: Legacy Operations Story Mode
326: CQ, PvP, GSF & Legacy Operations Veteran (Hard) Mode
328: R-4 Anomaly Story Mode
330: Legacy Operations Master (Nightmare) Mode & R-4 Anomaly Veteran (Hard) Mode
332: R-4 Anomaly Veteran (Hard) Mode
334: R-4 Anomaly Veteran (Hard) Mode

Ula Vii / Jul 21, 2020

🌟 I'm very pleased to announce the return of legacy conquest scoring! 🌟

Legacy scoring is were we combine the conquest scores for all of your characters in Alpha guild and mail you a sweet amount of credits for your efforts 😃

I've always felt it provides better rewards for everyone helping the guild win 1st place regardless of if you score your points on one character or twenty. We had to take a break from legacy scoring when the 6.0 conquest changes arrived as it already took several hours every week which then took even longer with the new points system so we temporarily switched to individual character scoring. While doing that we've been refining a process to share the workload and implemented a few changes so that now we can return to legacy scoring.

This means a lot more people are going to be getting prizes as everybody who scores 100k or more will win! For every 100k points you get in Alpha you will win 200,000 credits. No lottery randomness. It's a straight points to credits conversion. You could score 100k CQ points on one character, 50k on two or 34k on three! The idea is that every time you see a conquest reward popup you can think of it as a credit popup 💰

Big Rewards
Each week we post the results in our Conquest gallery and mail your prize to the character name in your member notes, so make sure those are accurate!

  • We reward you 200,000 credits for every 100k conquest points you earn, there is no limit!
  • The top 5 scoring legacies each win a bonus 5 million credits
  • The game rewards you 2, 3 or 4 Solid Resource Matrix depending which planet yield we invade
  • You can continue to COD mail Ula Vii encryptions for 400k each
  • You win the 25 conquest titles and 38 achievements
  • The #1 point scorer each week wins the Minister of War rank in-game
  • Your score will be recorded in the long term score board for all to see
Because Alpha is the guild that goes for the win each week, we are going to focus all the rewards there which allows us to give out greater prizes for the people who are contributing to the guild's victory. We won't be giving out any prizes for Beta or Rep since they are not going for the top spot and already benefit from the large yield crafting rewards. The other aspect of it is that we wanted to include every single point you earn in the legacy scoring and even with us sharing the workload it would still take far too long to do that across all three guilds.

We expect some people to be moving from Beta to Alpha for the big conquest rewards and from Alpha to Beta for the new raid team boosts. A few of us will be logging in periodically throughout Tuesday to handle invites so drop a message in our Discord #guild-invites channel or post a reply below and we'll get you in. Remember not to move over until after the CQ reset at 19:00 BST if you want your in-game weekly rewards 😉

Play well and have fun!

I have increasingly felt that Beta can be improved to better benefit our guild and now the final piece of the puzzle has clicked into place. Since we activated Beta, it has shared the same guild perks as Alpha so that a wide range of activities are enhanced. For the foreseeable future that is changing. Beta is now going to be boosted for our progression raiders by having the Zeal set bonus continuously enabled which provides a 5% alacrity boost in all Hard Mode raids. When possible I will also choose the perks that either increase adrenal duration or reduce repair costs.

To get the most benefit from the Zeal bonus you will need to tweak your gear to account for the increased alacrity. Riku's gear guide shows the alacrity values to aim for. You may want to have two gear sets since the Zeal bonus does not apply to Nightmare raids.

We will keep an emergency stash of top level stims, adrenals and medpacs in the Beta officer's vault for progression team leaders to access if anybody on their team runs short but we would expect most raiders to be running the reusables or providing for themselves. We understand that everybody needs some help sometimes so don't be afraid to ask.



Be the best you can be

🌟 Congratulations Everyone 🌟

July 2019 sees Stroke my Wookie blaze through our 7th year as the game's most incredibly awesome guild and I felt compelled to share a walk down memory lane with you.

7 long years ago in a server far, far away...

Seven wildcards who enjoyed raiding and hanging out together agreed to unite their talents by forming a guild called Stroke my Wookie; the name a reminder not to take things too seriously. The game was still new and there were many things to explore beyond raiding so the guild would form our event groups and invite our friends to join our adventures. People enjoyed themselves and liked what they saw and over time our little group developed into the amazing community we have today.

  • Home Away From Home
    • We've been an active stable guild for over 7 years
    • A lot of our guild members have been with us for years
  • Excellent Officers
    • A big thank you to all the officers who have helped lead the guild over the years 🌞
  • Dominated Three Servers
    • Tomb of Freedon Nadd / The Red Eclipse / Darth Malgus
  • Conquerors
    • Soon to win our 250th conquest 1st place
    • Over 2.5 billion conquest points so far
  • World Firsts
  • Always Active
    • We've run thousands of guild events for players of all abilities
  • Community
    • We've organised hundreds of server events across 3 servers
  • Constantly Improving
  • Here is our ever improving guild raid progress over the last 3 patch versions:
    • Patch 3.x 63/69 91%
    • Patch 4.x 60/65 92%
    • Patch 5.x 72/75 96% (Help With This! 👼)

Now 7 years later, 7 years wiser and 7 years stronger
Still hungry for more

Play well and have fun!

"While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give"

Ula Vii / May 22, 2019


Well done everybody, the guild continues to go from strength to strength with positive development in all areas. To match the trend I have boosted the rewards we offer across the board so it's even easier to win!

Weekly Conquest Rewards
  • 500k credits for each 100k points (up from 300k credits)
  • I will continue to total up all your character scores in each guild
  • If you score 100k+ in 2 or more of our guilds I will now combine the scores
    • Examples...
    • You score 140k in Alpha and 170k in Beta: Both are above 100k so they are combined into 310k points so you win 1.5m credits 🏆
    • You score 110k in Alpha and 20k in Beta: Your Alpha score of 110k wins you 500k credits 💰
    • You score 50k in Alpha and 70k in Beta: Neither are above 100k so you don't win anything 😭
  • In my tests this has shown a 10-20 million credit increase in prizes for some weeks!
  • 1st place continues to win the Minister of War rank and a Grand Chance Cube
  • The top 3 scorer's prizes remain awesome: 1st:10m / 2nd:6m / 3rd:4m
  • Getting the highest single character score in any of our 3 guilds still gets you 5m credits

Encryptions & Reinforcement Modules
You have been able to COD mail me Encryptions and Reinforcement Modules for ages and now is a good time to update the credit amounts to reflect the current market and our needs:

  • Encryption COD increased to 400k each (up from 350k)
  • Reinforcement Module decreased to 200k (down from 500k, we have over 250 in storage already!)
  • Free donations still welcome 😁
So the guild will now pay 400k for each and all types of conquest Encryption you have and 200k for each Reinforcement Module. Just COD mail them to Ula Vii.

Guild Lottery x2
You can now deposit lottery money into Alpha & Beta (previously just Alpha). Hopefully this means more of you can play as I know some of our Beta crowd felt excluded. I'll add the list of Beta guild entries to the bottom of the Alpha guild entries and then do the counting as normal. Read here if you want to find out how the lottery works.

Additionally, the guild donation to the prize pot will be 20 million credits each week (up from 10m) 😎

Battle Master Hunting Parties
We now have 4 Battle Master Hunters who will be forming groups in guild chat:

  • Darknell
  • Jet'lizzard
  • Nærgal
  • Stewy
This means you will have more opportunities to farm Encryptions which you can COD mail to me or sell for yourself on the GTN. Just keep your eyes on guild chat and the Discord #group-finder channel for when they start a group. The times for this are random but regular since it's a combination of "when they find several Jedi to kill" and "when they have time to lead some kills".
