On the search yet again

So after a long hard thought and etc. last night I opted to leave the guild I was in , after a month I just couldn’t do it. It wasn’t for me. I want a causal friendly guild that wants to do all content, mostly Story stuff together, some PVP, and etc. My RP days in SWTOR have not been the greatest, and I really no longer care about RPing my character, yes I will create a back story for him, give out detailed information and such, but I won’t be RPing it to death like most want, or wanted me to do. I just want to do what most want to do now, have fun and be in a causal active friendly guild that does content, not get upset and rearrange a Stronghold when things start to look bleak. So I’m back to searching for the guild for me. Of course so many have told me to just make it, but that is where the problem lies for me. I don’t have friends in game that aren’t apart of a guild, and I honestly don’t know them all that well to ask for an invite to their guild.

I love being apart of something like I was, but in the long run when trying to rebuild something and everyone has a different vision of what it is they are looking for, it just doesn’t seem to fit right with anyone. Unlike the guild Trayvae helped Co-found, where everyone left ,and didn’t say a word, or was kicked by the GM because it wasn’t with people he wanted in the guild. So now I’m back on the search on the Ebon Hawk server to find my place in a good casual guild that just wants to have fun and play the game in all aspects. Whether it be Random Flashpoints, PVP, PVE stuff, or just overall goofing around. I am sure I will find my place one day in SWTOR but right now I’m also thinking of doing a let’s play video series for my YouTube channel as well, maybe by doing that I will find the people that want to create a fun , friendly guild where Alts will not be an issue. Only thing I ask if and when that day comes is to log into the alts once in a while. I know some will think of me being a tad picky, but in reality I’m not, I just want to find something to do in game with a lot of people and have fun doing so.

Even got myself some new guns for my healer as well. I am not deleting him, I plan on keeping him, and using him, just not sure where yet. Course each day I do log in and see what the CXP bonus for the day is with him, because before I jump into doing Star Fortresses and what not, I want the level 10 so when it’s  time to jump into the heroics of it , I can do that, plus I want to grind for more alliance crates by doing heroics and etc. I just want to have fun in the game, and while I do love some of the stories and what have you, I just crave more in game now. It’s the whole reason for me taking on different roles, and right now I just want to focus on being a healer, from a Merc down to a Sorc healer, sadly though there aren’t all that many specs for healing, when the time comes I plan on making a new trooper and making them into a healer, since I know that Mercs and Troopers are mirror classes, just like when I do the Operative Healer, I will be replaying through the Smuggler story as I know that is a Mirror class to Agent, and same with Sorc, I will make a healing Sage since I know that is yet another mirror class. I do love the fact that people all over our wonderful community takes the time to write guides for us that don’t know what most of what we’re doing.

 

I don’t want to do solo stuff anymore, yeah sometimes it’s fine, but let’s face it, in a game like SWTOR there is so many more options, and that is what I always thought the joy of being here was. I love the stories, but I also crave more. I don’t want to be that person that just keeps going on and on as a solo player. It gets boring, and lonely at times where I just log out, and go off into a solo style game like my driving simulators. Of course though if I can’t find a guild I like on the Ebon Hawk, I have other servers to try and find that perfect guild for me. The one that just lets us have fun within the game and not demand things. Role playing is not for everyone, and as I have stated in the past, and above. I am no longer really interested in it anymore. Oh well  the hunt will continue for a guild where I fit into it. Until then, happy gaming!!

So I’ve been told

I would hinder my team since I don’t use Grenades in PVP , and for Flashpoints as well. I know some people rely on them and use them like they use their abilities but is it wrong that I refuse to use them in PVP and Flashpoints. I mean I’m unlike some. If I want to know about a certain fight and what have you, I use YouTube to search for a video, or Google to find a written guide on it. I honestly have never used those in either PVP nor Flashpoints, and I find them pretty pathetic in my opinion. If you have to rely on things like that , then you’re really not learning how to use your class abilities and such. I can see if you’ve used all your defenses, and stuns and what not and that is the last thing you have on you, but I’m sorry I know healers put out some damage but our main goal is to keep everyone alive, and I have rarely if ever seen a healer use a damn cyber-tech grenade to help maintain an advantage. So now it has me thinking is this really the right place for me?

First he doesn’t like the gear I am wearing, nor does he like my choice in guns, all my ideas, and etc are being shot down. I get a room in the Guild SH, we had it decorated the way I wanted, more so the way he wanted, then he’d take it all down, and do something different, and ask my opinion on it. I’d tell him I liked it but in reality, I just didn’t care in all honesty. This last time though after busting his tail to get those new Asylum Tanks and Toxic barrels, and placing them in the lab which he moved from a small room to one of the larger rooms before hitting the balconies on the last floor, the lab was set up and I loved it, even said so. But because I logged early one night and he was in by himself, he removed everything and put it back in a smaller room and made it look more like a room to his desire. Then asked me “How do you like your new lab?” , again I told him I liked it.  Always trying to change my character it seems to fit in with his idea for a guild RP , which to be honest, not a lot want to do anymore, or they want well established guilds, and you know what, there is nothing wrong with that. Since Bioware removed the RP for a lot of servers, new players do not really know which server is RP and which isn’t anymore. So yeah that makes recruitment hard, but also it shouldn’t hinder people who do wanna RP either, but lastly it does anymore. Then again, I get to break it to him now that I no longer care about RP, I just wanna have fun playing the game in groups and having fun in general. Which will probably prompt me to be kicked out of the guild, and if that happens , then so be it. I keep trying. If not on Ebon Hawk, well then I move that legacy to another server with a lot more of my unlocks.

Then he’s going on and on about character cards, then complaining about the new Mandalorian Guilds popping up, and thinking its because of Mandalorian Gladiators is the reason for the new guilds. I honestly don’t think so, and no sense in trying to tell him that. I understand being a team player means well PVP/SF/FPs, and etc. But not everyone wants to do just those 3 things all the time. I can’t do more then a daily set of PVP, and SF well it’s a time killer, and good for CXP when it’s on the bonus days, but Black Talon FP????? Sorry I do it when I’m leveling up a new character for the XP before hitting Drumond Kaas but that is it. I don’t run it like I did when those deco drops were around. I ran it 11 times to get the Black Talon Deco drop. But since Deco drops have been nerfed so hard in FPs and such, I just don’t bother really running them unless I decide to farm for speeders to give away to players that are asking for them, because that is just how I am as a person. I have done that with stuff I have gotten from cartel packs and etc. that just doesn’t sale that well on the GTN, and new players are always  the most welcomed because they can’t afford the gear right away, or they take it and sale it on the GTN themselves, to earn some credits. Whatever they do with them once I do with them, I don’t really care. I try to be a nice and helpful person, and sometimes it works. Other times it just doesn’t. I won’t be judgmental, I am who I am, and I won’t change for anyone.

PVP,Group stuff, Over all fun in SWTOR finally!!

So yesterday I did the daily bonus for Galactic Command, and it was PVP, so our GM, our newest recruit and a friend of theirs joined us in a group, and we Que for PVP, now mind you I always said in the past that I wouldn’t be doing anymore PVP, but well things change, and I changed. I am getting into group content now. On days that Flashpoints are the Bonus, we run Black Talon a lot for our GMs one alt, he’s trying to achieve a higher social level and I’m all for that, so we run solo mode with those Jesus (Or God) Droids as they are called, which kind of lets me do some DPS damage, not much but some. But I do cleanse us both a lot. So now I am also Level 71 or 72 in Galactic Command now as well, and I have all 7 pieces of gear, most dropped from the Crates, but the last two pieces I was able to get with Unassembled Components and Command Tokens, which were the Boots and Body Armor, now mind you I am not really into the look for the gear, so I let it sit out, while I use the outfit Designer, and I plan on showing off some of the outfits Krumar Ordo wears in game. I have really changed this year, and I’m enjoying this side of SWTOR finally.

This is something new for me, and I’m really finally enjoying it. Just like I did not think I would honestly love playing a healer spec, but I do. It’s something different for me, and now it has me wondering about trying my hand at tanking one day in the future as well. As you can see in the image up at the very top of this post. I did amazingly well as a healer in PVP, which to my surprise earned me a few MVP’s. I did manage to make some kills, only had one death myself as they ganged up on me and our GM and friends couldn’t peel them off me fast enough. Man they really do not like healers in PVP, and I can’t much blame them either. We do have a thing for trying to keep everyone alive in the matches. But yeah I’ve finally found a place in SWTOR where I’m comfortable, able to be myself and have fun doing so. No one has an issue with me being a woman that plays male characters. That makes it all more worth it to be honest. I won’t lie and say I didn’t know how I would be taken once I told the truth. But I won’t deny the fact that I am a female that games, and I enjoy the male voice actors more so on some characters then others. We even had a few death matches were we won all because I kept or at least tried to keep everyone alive, and we were able to win the matches and that made them really proud of me. Course I also had Blade sitting here cheering me on as well, even though he was quiet until after the matches so he didn’t break my concentration on keeping us all alive.  He’s being super supportive in all this as well. He was afraid that I would drop subscription and uninstall the game, but now that he’s seeing me doing other things, he’s proud of me for keeping at it. I know there are a lot of bad people in the game, but there are a lot of good people as well. I’ve noticed as well that sometimes it is not really the big guilds that will fit a person, but ones that are rebuilding, and are small are usually the best ones, especially for someone like me who has anxiety disorders. While I still do things as a solo player as well, but mostly I’m craving for group content now. I finally understand what everyone was saying in the past about being a team player, while yes SWTOR has a lot of solo content mainly the personal stories and etc, but it’s nice to group up, and go kick some arses from time to time too.

So also while doing some solo things, I leveled up my Nexu who I call “Shock” to influence level 50 and man let me tell you, he is a walking tank now, course that is the spec I put him in, all because with me being a healer, I needed to keep him alive while taking on the baddies in solo stuff from time to time, so that left me with another idea to level up another Cartel Companion so I opted to start leveling up my Mawvorr and get him up to level 50 and him I decided to name “Shadowstalker” I am even developing a story on how I acquired these beasts. Which will make for an interesting read once I am doing developing it. I am over all having fun now whether it be solo or in a group. Course next up for me is to get Bowdaar as a companion, but I am going to see if I can get some help for it since Chomper likes to chomp on me a lot. Course it may be different now that I’m in 230 gear, well minus the mods in my guns, which I need to upgrade soon to purple 230’s.

 

 

Are Legendary Status players being punished?

antiragging So with the latest information released about the Light vs Dark event, it seems that Bioware, and etc just did not think this through. For most of us we have a ton of the achievements already unlocked, a maxed or close to maxed legacy, crafting done, etc. So where does that leave us that have these all done, well their suggestion if you want to partake in the event. Jump to a new server and start a new legacy or something along that nature. You need two characters for the Light vs Dark event, and a ton of throw away as well. You have to have all 8 stories done for the legendary part of the event. So basically they told us, “We are really catering to the new players and not the veterans that have been around since pre-launch, and etc.” I’ve only been apart of SWTOR for the last few years. During that time I’ve managed to max my legacies to level 50, maxed crafting, gotten HK-51 and unlocked it on all legacies. So where would this leave me now? In the cold I guess, and as much as I wanted to partake in the event. Starting a fresh legacy and starting a new , well it could happen. But I won’t be holding my breath for it all because of one thing, starting a new legacy with NO perks is NOT my idea of fun. I love my quick travel to ship, I love being able to jump to whatever planet I need to get things done. I have all 5 Strongholds, I can only get so far in the Eternal Championship without just going “Hell with it, and quitting it.” They really did not think this damn thing through when they decided to bring the Light vs Dark event into play, or maybe they did and decided they would punish those of us that have been done so much and expect us to start from scratch. Now I know on POT5, and Jung Ma servers I could go there as I had them strictly for PVP purposes, and did not move any of my other characters from higher legacies there, but I don’t know if I want to go to dead servers and try to play anything there. Granted story wise it would be a charm, all because no one is there, but to even attempt the FPs and other things would be extremely hard cause if it’s a dead server, then how are you suppose to get achieve anything there. While my subscription is still active, and I do go in a and play from time to time, it would give me an option to redo a lot of the older stories again on those other servers, but it’s the point of seeing the same story again and again. As for the goodies they are giving, well the only one I would seriously want are the companions but like many of us, we want to know if the companions come with a backstory, and seriously do we need anymore damn companions to begin with. With the alliance in KOTFE, plus the original companions and add on ones they have released via Cartel Packs, do we really need new ones?

Out of all the gifts besides the companions the only ones I would want are

 

  • Black/Black and White/White Dye
  • MSM J-37 Jetpack
  • Volatile Conqueror’s Lightsaber
  • Unstable Arbiter’s Lightsaber

I don’t care much for the armor as I have my set armor that I want. The Cathar honor sword is not me at all. I wish it was, but it’s just not. Unstable lightsaber well I would put into my cargo hold and forget it. Volatile Lightsaber, well it would go well with my Energized and Over-tuned ones I have unlocked in my account now. The dyes are always a huge want because there are some characters that would look in awesome in the Black/Black, not sure about the White/White due to the fact I am not a huge fan of white in general. So where will this leave me during the event? Well to be honest the steam summer sale is going on now til July 4, I have a few games I got over the weekend to play, so yeah I guess while this is going on, and after KOTFE ends here soon. I’ll be finding games in other areas to partake in since I don’t have a band of friends that I could suggest we all make toons on those dead servers, and go there and play, or anything else in that nature, so Thanks but no thanks, I guess this is one event I won’t be dealing with at all. If I start a new toon it’s to play the way I want, not because they believe they should have locked these damn awards to some silly ass event now. Thanks SWTOR, but this is one player that just doesn’t have the friends to do this with.

 

Recent Achievements

Aside from working on various things at the moment, by that I mean, my pen name blog, along with other things. While I am playing SW:ToR I am also working on things for my legacy. Even though it has been Legacy Lvl 50 for almost a year now if not over a year, well I’ve done some amazing things. I’ve gotten two new titles in the past week. I got the “Master Craftsman” title for achieving all crew skills to max to get the legacy title Unlocked. Just last night I hit the “Galatic Explorer” Legacy Title. A few weeks back I got the one for doing all the planetary Heroics, along with “Fallen Knight”, “Follower of the old ways”, and etc. So yeah I’m pretty damn proud of myself on my list of recent achievements, not to mention all 5 SHs are now fully decorated ,while some may change in the future once I get more decos I like and etc, I’m content with how they turned out.

This is just a few snapshots I took over the last few days. I will take more when time permits, and I remember too. Also I have been playing with outfit designer on a few of my characters and gave them different looks for my various moods. Jordelli has a few decent smugglers outfits that I like, and now with everyone maxed out in crafting. I am having a blast making dyes that I like, and keeping everyone in Stims, Med pacs, and other various things, but now this also has me thinking as well about starting a new character, but not a consular, I ended up deleting the other one, I did the story once, and just can’t bring myself to do yet another consular. So now I’m thinking of doing a new character, not sure about the main class, spec, and or species yet. I tend to stick with Human, Rattataki, Cyborg, Sith. I have them all , but I just can’t get over some of their looks. Others I tend to try to make them look more human than they really are. But back to what I’m thinking about doing. The GM of the guild I’m co-founder in has been doing a lot of PVPing lately, and I’ve been thinking about making this new character, bring them up to level 10, and start learning how to PVP and work on leveling up, collecting WZ Comms, and etc. Figure if I start out low-level, I can learn how to use Keybindings as I’m still and all fashion clicker, and also to help me learn my class even better. I know I will probably be laughed at all and but I was thinking of doing this as something else besides stories all the time. I mean you can only grind a story for so long before you just say piss on it and walk away. Plus it has me thinking if I learn how to play at a low-level, then save up enough Comms and etc to transfer over to one of my level 65’s and work on them as well to unlock both 4x and Pierce on other characters in each faction, so yeah I’m thinking of doing two new characters, 1 for Pub side, and 1  for Imp side. I have 13 characters at the moment on Ebon hawk, so figured I’d might as well really try to work on other things, then eventually we wanna get a good Op group built so we can do them, cause he’s never done them, and I’ve never done them, plus we want to build up this guild that we called “Elite Imperial Vanguard”, a guild where you’re welcome to come in with your alts, we’ll help you, you help us, and we build a small tight-knit little group from within. Eh, it’s just a thought anyways.

On that note, I’m finish this post, and have my last cup of coffee for a few hours, then crash, I’ll tell ya what, insomnia is a bitch at times, and so are odd sleeping patterns, up all afternoon/evening/night, sleep a few hours, and do it all over again the next day. Have a great weekend where ever you are!!
