SWTOR Combat Styles Symbol Colour Selection Guide

Here is my guide to a new quality of life feature coming soon to Star War The Old Republic in Game Update 7.1. This new feature in SWTOR allows you to change the colour of the Combat Styles symbols to any colour you wish or choose from a preset!

This is an unannounced feature currently on the Game Update 7.1 PTS.

How does Combat Styles Colour Selection Work in SWTOR?

There are two different ways you can customise the colours of the Combat Style Symbols. You can use the three presets available (see below for more details) or you can manually change the colour of each symbol to any colour you like using the Select Colour Wheel.

SWTOR Combat Styles Colours Selection Interface

Make sure you click the ‘Apply’ button and click Accept on the Update Colours dialogue pop-up for the changes you made to go into effect. If you exit out or hit the ‘ESC’ key the window, before clicking the ‘Apply’ button, will close and you will lose the changes you made!

A couple of things to note:

  • When you change the colour of the Combat Styles symbols, it only changes the colours for you. It is client-side.
  • All colour options are saved across your legacy. In other words, the settings are not per character. So if you change the symbol colours on one character, it changes it for all your characters.

Combat Styles Colour Presets

There are three different colour presets you can choose from.

  • Default (7.0)
  • Classic (Pre 7.0)
  • Colourblind
