Category Archives: Making Credits

When the GTN forgets…

Sometimes, instead of a more descriptive message when your listing ends, you’ll receive the following mail:

Someone has purchased the item you put up for sale on the Galactic Trade Network. You will receive your asking price and deposit, less the Galactic Trade Network’s Commission, in one hour. (Or, after an hour, your credits are attached.)

This happens after server maintenance, when the listing details necessary to generate the mail are lost (luckily, the credits will still make their way to you). If you are crafting and listing many items at a time and need to know what sold, avoid having auctions expire during maintenance periods, which are usually on Tuesday mornings and are announced in advance on the official forums.

Courting Gift Fix Coming

On the official bug report forum, they have finally confirmed that courting gifts are not working properly under the influence system, and that a fix is scheduled for Game Update 4.1. Our romance-storyline companions should be interested in the courting gift category again by Valentine’s Day.

Courting gifts have been largely useless for the past few months, and that’s made them cheap. If you are following the romance storyline on any of your characters, buy gifts now to use or sell after 4.1, when they will again give the highest level of influence gain to multiple companions.

If you plan to romance companions, wait until after 4.1 to start Knights of the Fallen Empire: they are also promising a fix for the situation where romances are not recognized in the new content, but it won’t be retroactive.
