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!!

What I’ve learned as a Merc Bodyguard!

So far as I’ve only played a Bounty Hunter Mercenary Bodyguard, I have learned one valuable lesson. It’s not as easy as most would think it would be. But I have learned to put heals above everything else, and I’m happy to do just that. Also It’s a little strange for me since I’ve only really played DPS and what not, but now I am understanding the need for heals, and how fun it can be. Course now I’m debating on which healing class should be next for me. Sorc healer, or Operative Healer, which both stories I love, but I am leaning more towards an Operative healer as I’ve read they are more mobile on their heals, and etc. Plus it’s nothing against those that prefer force users, I just find playing a non force user a little more exciting for me. Plus it’s a challenge. Of course though my ultimate plan is having a mirror class for each healer as well, so when the time comes for me to go over to Republic side I plan on making a Commando Healer, and once I have both Sorc and Operative healers on Empire side, I will have both Jedi Sage healer, and Smuggler healer, all because it will be nice to have both, of course though it will require me to buy more slots so I can do this. Over time though. Then eventually I want to try my hand at tanking in the future as well, but right now I plan on being responsible as a healer, and try to keep my teammates alive and well as much as I can. I am also working on a guide that I can use better to help me become a better healer, how I am doing that is by taking both the guides from Dulfy and from what I read on the official forums at SWTOR as well. I tend to combine the two into a guide were I can gather information and start prepping myself to gear up as I get close to level 70.

Course I am not sure about much of anything else at the moment as I tend to want to begin challenging myself. Of course if I could get our guild master to stop doing story mode of Black Talon for the social points, I could use my skills a lot better. Course he wants to run Story Mode and won’t dismiss that damn droid we get from it, which is annoying to me, because how am I suppose to learn how to be a better healer, when that damn droid is active all the time. He just doesn’t get it I don’t think. This is a new area for me, and I’m willing to try my best, course other than my guns, All my gear is Tier 1 230’s all augmented as well. I’m just a tad off on the numbers of Endurance, Power, and Critical. Not by much, but I think if I can get better barrels , mods, enhancements I will be set then. But as I look on the GTN for level 70 stuff, I can’t afford it at the moment as I just bought myself a new gear set I have been wanting for the last few months. It was the Galvanized Infantry armor set. Course I know once I get the cartel coins to unlock it account wide, that will be one set my healing trooper will be wearing. Course now I am working finding a new weapon for the hunter. So now that task is at hand and I am having issues finding one I like. I have the gear sets I like the best, but no new weapons. At least none that would go with the lighting tuning that is installed it. Oh well that is another thing. Enjoy.

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.

 

 

PVP is actually fun

So over the last few days I have been doing a lot of PVP on Trayvae recently and it’s because I wanted to get Pierce from the alliance log, and into my current companions, and today I got him finally. I would have never attempted to PVP in the past on Trayvae all because I was fearful of it, but over the last few days I decided to try it. I’ve had a ton of fun doing it too. I’ve listened to the more experienced players and took their advice, and they tried their best to keep me alive, but today I went in with a different kind of mood, and teamed up nicely with a few snipers, and we kicked some major ass doing it so too. Which was kind of ironic because they couldn’t attack both of us at the same time, well they tried, but we had some Assassins that would stealth in, and help us while a healer kept us alive. We talked for a few moments on the Fleet before I logged off, and I told them it may not be an everyday thing, but I have been enjoying myself, and listening to their key advice, plus I told them I have watched a ton of Videos on Youtube about various Warzones and etc. I’m learning more about my Sniper and etc. They told me I was doing a good job and were happy to have me on their team.

I started this after I got the latest patch installed , and I went from Valor 16 to 21 in a matter of a few matches. I am proud of myself for this, because I am finally not to shy about going into PVP anymore on Trayvae. I doubt I will ever have old PVP gear since I was to afraid to go into the PVP realms in the past, but that is long gone now. I may start a new character and go through PVP that way, to see how the Lowbies, and Mids compare to how the max level is. I want to start having fun, and I want to start learning new things, so I am taking this year to learn some new things about PVP and grouping up for things finally. I know there will always be toxic players, but when I’m honest with them, and explain to them that I haven’t done some things, I’m starting to see a lot more are easier to get along with, and are very helpful as well. They are wanting people like myself in PVP now, and have no issues staying teamed up with a noob like me. But yeah I’m having fun now in PVP and I’m glad that I got over that hump and started to do some end game stuff, I think next up with be doing some things in Group Finder, I want to try the uprisings, as well, so I’m take things slow, and explain to them  that I’m new, and I want to learn. I mean after all what’s really the point of me being in an MMO now if I don’t break my walls and learn to play the game even more.

Decoration addict maybe?!?!?!

Voss Room in SH for Republic

Now I don’t know about anyone else but I could see having a SH on Voss. All because it reminds of my 2nd favorite time of the year. Fall, the atmosphere there is just so pleasant and inviting. It doesn’t matter which side I’m in the game. It’s just that kind of place. I know a lot want SHs on Manaan, and various other places, but I honestly would love to have one on Voss. Also I’d like some Voss type personnel to be able to put into the SH rooms like we can with everything else.

I was so happy to see that the SWTOR Cartel team had put out more Decos for Voss, all because I wanted to do a special room in SWTOR dedicated to just the Voss, so on my Coruscant SH I took a small room since there really isn’t a lot of Decos for Voss yet, and decided to place what I got off the GTN and the prefab vendors, and from the Cartel Packs. The outside of the room has two standing Voss Banners that I thought were just inviting to let others know it was a voss area. Once inside you see all the items minus a few plants that are everything to do with Voss. This was just something I wanted to do. I really hope in the future they bring us another SH and that it would be on Voss, because then I’d have a blast decorating it. Unsure if it would ever happen, but eh, a girl can dream right?
