SWTOR Announces Massive Direct Cartel Market Sale

Eric Musco, the Community Manager for Star Wars The Old Republic, has announced a massive direct Cartel Market Sale Event. For a limited time, almost all Cartel Market items will be made available for direct purchase from Tuesday, April 3rd through Tuesday, April 17th.

Cartel Market Limited Time Sale 
From Tuesday, April 3rd through Tuesday, April 17th almost every Cartel Market item will be available for direct sale! Maybe there is an item you have been waiting to see in our weekly sales, or, you just don’t want to throw the credits at it on the GTN. This will give you an opportunity to scoop that item up.

Additionally, a new Cartel Market Pack was announced as well as some new items which will be available starting March 27th.

The Next CM Pack
Our new Cartel Pack will be called the “Ultimate Pack” will be available tomorrow as well and it works a bit differently than other packs:

  • Each pack contains 4 slots. Slots 1, 2, and 3 can contain any item ever released on the CM, including the new items coming in ‘Command Authority’ (Game Update 5.8), and any future items. Slot 4 will then contain either scrap, Companion Gifts, or a Dye Module. Dyes being in slot 4 is a big change from how it worked in older packs.
  • Pricing of the packs has been lowered; they can be purchased individually (200 CC), in a 10-pack Supercrate (1900 CC), or in a 30-pack Hypercrate (5400 CC).

New Items
Been looking to get the new Dark Honor Guard’s Unstable Saber (it’s amazing) since the launch of Game Update 5.8 ‘Command Authority’? Well that saber along with all the new 5.8 Cartel Market items will be available for direct sale starting tomorrow, March 27th!

The changes revealed today, which were previously hinted at in the Spring 2018 Road Map, are yet another step in the ongoing changes the Developers have been making to the Cartel Market over the past few months.


What will you be getting? Personally, I’m hoping there’ll be lots of good decorations for me to snag!
