Old Republic patch deployed, doesn't fix invincibility dance

Star Wars exploit to be sorted tomorrow, says BioWare

BioWare's released the latest patch for Star Wars: The Old Republic, fixing various mission and UI bugs but overlooking yesterday's mental dance exploit.

In case you missed the rather large bug, it basically involves dancing during a gunfight to render player characters totally invincible to enemy damage. Woops.

Though the current patch doesn't sort the trick, BioWare's promised it will be sorted via a new patch within the next 24 hours.

"We're currently testing this patch, and we hope to have it deploy sometime in the early hours of the morning tomorrow (CST)," it said in a statement, "but if we experience any issues with this patch, we may hold off its deployment until tomorrow night."

In another update BioWare's detailed upcoming PvP changes, including the addition of level 50 Warzones and revisions to Ilum rewards.
