Star Wars: The Old Republic patch 1.0.2 released, invincible dancing fix inbound

Star Wars The Old Republic - space combat

Star Wars: The Old Republic received a patch earlier today packed full of fixes. According to the patch notes, we'll no longer have to worry about taxis disappearing mid flight dropping us to the ground below. We'll also be able to use emotes while riding vehicles, too. Woop!

The patch has also "removed some high-level harvesting nodes from Tatooine, Corellia, and Ilum," presumably in a bid to stop recent problems with low level players harvesting high level loot and unbalancing the economy.

The /getdance command that can interrupt enemy attacks hasn't been fixed in this patch, but Bioware say on the Star Wars: The Old Republic site that they're currently testing an update that should "deploy sometime in the early hours of the morning tomorrow(CST)."
