The next update to Star Wars: The Old Republic, version 1.4, includes some minor changes intended to make the play experience more enjoyable.

Update 1.4 will address a common complaint about the Group Finder: that it doesn't return you to your original location. Now, you'll have that option as long as you've taken down at least one boss — or in some cases, reached a major checkpoint — in the Flashpoint. Delayed binding for certain items is intended to reduce the frustration from mistakes; if you accidentally pick up a Bind on Pickup or Bind on Legacy item, you have two hours to exchange it. You'll also be able to make your companion's outfit and gear match, and change your character's facial expression.

Those usability improvements will come in update 1.4 along with the previously discussed changes to classes and gameplay balance, as well as optimizations to shadows.

BioWare has not yet provided a release date for the version 1.4 update.
