Hey there folks, Great catch! The changes mentioned were ones that I made quickly in response to balance issues I saw after 5.5. There was a long-ish delay between when I made the adjustments and when the patch notes were being collated for 5.6. I simply forgot that these needed to be included in the 5.6 patch notes. I'll do my best to avoid doing that in the future. There certainly was no intent make "ninja" changes. The intent was simply to make responsive changes to aspects of GSF that still Dev tracker

Starting with ’A Traitor Among the Chiss’ (Game Update 5.6) on November 28th, there will be a new item introduced to the Cartel Market called the Master’s Datacron. This item will allow you to take any non-maximum level (70) character on your account and immediately move them up to maximum level. One unique thing about this boost is that it doesn’t progress your character’s story at all, meaning this is a great way to play through the classic Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ storylines without worrSWTOR.com

Star Wars: The Old Republic - Knights of the Eternal Throne Review
Dec 5, 2017

It wasn't until the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion late last year that BioWare's vision for the future of SWTOR crystalized. The studio strongly shifted focus back towards what set the game apart from its peers: the story. But Fallen Empire wasn't without flaws. BioWare got caught up in the massive focus on story and seemed to forget the game was still an MMO. Thankfully, Knights of the Eternal Throne successfully strikes that balance and this bodes well for the game's future.MMORPG - swtor
