What is Stardust?

Put simply,  Stardust is a take on Pre-NGE Star Wars Galaxies with a primary focus on combat balance, quick, fast paced combat, challenging gameplay, and an overall content experience that you will not get anywhere else.

If you are tired of servers that cater to people that whine for an easy mode experience, watering down essential components of the game in the name of “Quality of Life”,  you may have come to the right place.

You don’t have to take our word for it though, you can just as easily let the game speak for itself. Note: The video above is outdated and not all information in it is accurate any longer. A replacement video will be produced in the near future.

Core Features

A Balanced Gameplay Experience

Stardust builds on the Pre-Combat Upgrade Star Wars Galaxies gameplay by systematically rebalancing every single combat profession in the game in order to bring them into parity with one another. We feel that the game as it was is inadequate and there were a wide variety of combat professions that simply were not viable to play in their state.

Primary Attribute Rebalancing

For starters, we have removed the one factor of Pre-CU SWG that we feel was the largest source of imbalance in combat. That being the targetable HAM (Health Action Mind) system. The mind pool has been completely removed from the game. All damage is directed to the health pool, action is used only as a universal resource pool for casting abilities.

Redesigned Interface

The user interface has been redesigned, albeit slightly to both evoke a familiar feel, and yet feel slightly less dated compared to both the original UI and later interfaces introduced to the game in the New Game Enhancements era of SWG. While I get that some people enjoyed the other interfaces, and that’s fine. If that’s a deal breaker for you there are plenty of other servers to play on that will look the same, tired way you’re accustomed to.

Unique Profession: Armorweaver

Along with profession rebalances, so too have Weapon and Armors been rebalanced as well. For example, each armor type is now comparable to one another in terms of their potential for being useful. An endless sea of people wearing nothing but Composite Armor is rather boring is it not? On Stardust you can wear what you want to wear, to further that end we have added a new profession called Armorweaver, which combines Armorsmithing and Tailoring to create Armored Clothing items that provide just as good protection as the best crafted armor suits.

More Features

New & Unique Content

Stardust is more than just a server with a few tweaks in a few places. We are a totally converted galaxy with the time setting pushed forward to the year 5 ABY in the Canon Timeline. This opens up a slew of new content for players to consume as they explore a galaxy irrevocably changed by the loss of Emperor Palpatine. A New Republic has formed to fill the ever expanding power vacuum and rather a guerilla war between a small insurgent group and the war machine of the Empire, there is now open war and it is raging everywhere all over the galaxy from the core worlds to the furthest reaches of the outer rim.

The Battle of Jakku

With the Galactic Civil War at it’s absolute hottest, the old factional theme parks have been completely re-written to fit within the new timeframe. All of which leads up to the Battle of Jakku itself, which exists in game as a massive, open world PvP zone surrounding an Imperial Weapons Development Facility which to both factions houses a high end PvE dungeon with top tier loot, with the added risk of an unwelcome visit from the enemy faction.

Custom Axkva Min & Exar Kun Heroic Instances

Speaking of high end PvE content, we have also incorporated our own versions of two of the heroic instances seen in the NGE version of the game. Both of these instances will challenge groups of up to ten players and reward groups skilled enough to defeat them in the time allotted with unique loot not found anywhere else.

New Worlds to Explore not found anywhere else!

While some of these planets have been incorporated by other servers, they have not done so in the manner they were originally intended. Stardust contains seven new planets for players to explore, and in some cases call home should they wish to.

If you were paying attention, that map only showed six new planets. The seventh, you will have to find on your own. Discovering it will be, unexpected to say the least.
