Bioware is going to launch Update 7.1.1 for Star Wars: The Old Republic at 1 p.m. today. This patch implements changes that players will love - one of which is the higher amount of Daily Resource Matrices gained.

The Daily Resource Matrix in SWTOR, for the uninitiated, is a resource that lets players upgrade their equipment. This is a pretty good resource to farm, especially for those who are still in the process of gearing their characters.

In the upcoming Update 7.1.1, the inflow of Daily Resource Matrices is increased from the following sources:

  • Group Finder Role in Need rewards 10 DRM (up from 5).
  • World Bosses reward 8 DRM on kill (up from 3).
  • Mission "[WEEKLY] Priority Targets" rewards 40 DRM (up from 20).
  • Weekly Missions for Heroic Areas reward 40 DRM (up from 20).
  • Weekly Missions for Daily Areas and Conquest Events reward 50 DRM (up from 25).

There are two main reasons why Bioware is implementing the above-mentioned changes. First, these will reduce the number of Daily and Heroic missions required for players to upgrade their gear. And second, players now have more options for farming the said currency.

Another major change in Update 7.1.1 is that the number of slots in the Outfitter has been doubled, essentially giving players 32 slots to work with instead of 16.
