Shadow of Revan Revealed

Yesterday, BioWare surprised us all with announcing the details about the upcoming Shadow of revan expansion.  They had just delayed the announcement a week ago, so I don't think anyone was expecting an information drop so soon.  I'm not one to complain :)  So what does the Shadow of Revan have to offer?

  • 5 new levels
  • 2 new planets:  Rishi and Yavin 4
  • Skill trees are getting blown up, Disciplines replacing them
  • 2 new Tactical Flashpoints
  • 4 Hardmode Flashpoints.  These are likely existing Tactical's being upgraded
  • 2 new Operations
Pretty much what I was expecting, except I figured there would be only one Operation.  That's not all the news though.  Subscribers who pre-order get a 12x XP boost to class missions.  That means you can level just by doing class missions.  This starts immediately and ends on December 1st.  

Of course, I pre-ordered right away.  Can't wait to get some leveling done with the 12x bonus.
