For anyone around 50 or so, The Old Republic has a new bucket of content upcoming. Among them, the Western Ice Shelf in Ilum has a new starship, leftover from the ancient Gree, full of gear, tech, armor, and a mysterious new opponent.
If a new Event isn't your flavor, Galactic Reputation has been added to TOR. Working for the Gree or Voss, and the Republic or the Empire, adds reputation that is tied to your Legacy. So yes, reputation grinding has been introduced, but honestly can you say you wouldn't like a few more 'things to work for' in TOR?
