Poaching and Guilds

Recently I’ve been noticing a trend since I joined a new guild after leaving <Elite Imperial Vanguard>, the reason behind leaving that guild yet again was well, issues with ex GM and myself, but I won’t go there. Just that I left it and am no longer using Trayvae as a main at the moment. Instead I started a new Bounty Hunter and made him a healer. Which I’m finding to be a good spec to play. I also joined a new guild last month called <Mandalorian Gladiators>, The GM there and I hit it off really well, and I was accepted into the guild. So for the last month we’ve been trying to build this guild. For him it’s a rebuild, and for me it’s a new experience all together because I want to do more things now as a group, so for time being we group up when flashpoints are the Bonus in CXP, and etc. It’s been a lot of fun. I am also learning a lot more about Mandalorians as well. But lately every time we have recruited someone into our guild, a poacher from another guild will come and steal this person from us. All cause we’re not a high end game type of guild ,and our real lives take priority over the game itself. Now up until I decided to join this guild, I had never heard of poachers for guilds, but recently I’ve been witnessed to it, as he had a stalker from another guild show up where ever he was, and would follow him all over the place.He was able to get that person to stop and we have a truce with them for now. But we’ll see how far that goes.

No one had contacted me or tried to talk me into joining their guild until the other day. I am guessing this person thought because I was online, and they didn’t even search for him, even though if you typed in “Gladiators” into the search, it showed us both online, well this person thought she would be slick and try to talk to me into leaving the guild I’m in now, and join theirs. But here’s the thing, I screen shot the whole conversation, and I was in guild chat with him letting him know what was going on, then copy and pasted this persons name to him. As he was talking to them, she went silent on my end of the conversation which is par for the course. As we were talking in guild chat, he said she tried to claim she was just interested in having a RP session, and etc. But of course like I told him it was basically a lie because she was asking me questions about our guild, if we were set on rebuilding and etc. So yeah him and I both came to the conclusion that she was trying to poach me for her guild.

Leadership and Class Spec

Since the time I joined this guild I have learned a lot more. I am learning to become a leader, when we go out for for flashpoints and etc. I am learning to sit back and be a healer while he tries to protect me and all. That’s good. I have a level 70 Bounty Hunter, who is responsible. This is the first time I have really taken to being a healer very serious. During the Gree event, he took me into the area even though we were in a PVP open area, we didn’t get bothered, but still with just him and I we went into the open area to do the heroic. He took a lot of damage while I kept him healed and cleansed free from the debuffs that happen. Then we did Mandalorian Raiders Flashpoint were I kept him healed, along with our companions as well. We had a successful run with just us, and I again amazed myself at how much technique is really required for healing. I am so use to playing DPS that I am now learning to fall back, and keeping an eye on health bars, I still have a long way to go, but I am learning and that is the best thing about this. I am willing to learn, and work forward on that. My next thing I want to do is PVP to get Pierce from my mission log. And I know if it’s during the CXP Bonus, we’ll group up and join a PVP match here and there. I am really enjoying this side of me. While I do love my DPS , I am learning to love being a healer too. Just wish there were more classes that allowed for healing, but I’m happy playing Bodyguard to heal everyone that needs it.  I also know that I may ask him for help on the EC all cause well Chomper just chomps me to deal and my Nexu is max 50 influence, and he’s a beast for sure. But I couldn’t get past Chomper at all, so I may ask for his help , to get Bowdaar into my alliance, then we were talking about teaming up to do Star Fortress Heroics/Flashpoints for Decorations for the guild (if they still drop) I haven’t gotten to do that yet. I may see if he wants to team up for some Rakghoul dailies when that event comes around, I am really learning to become a team player.

 

Oddness

Random oddness

So I decided that I was going to take a break from KotFE and all the chapter X hogwash as I like to call it, with some other choice words as well. I rolled two new characters. A Jedi Knight Sent, and a Sith Warrior Marauder. Now mind you I have them in their Tank forms as Guardian and Juggernaut but this time I wanted to try the dual sabers that they use. Plus I haven’t heard many say they were still squishy. Course now with the companions being like they are. It’s hard to even die as you level up anymore.  Well I killed the Emperor on the Jedi and stopped, she’s currently getting ready to make her republic mark on the planet Illum. So I jumped over to my Sith Warrior and took him from Korriban to DK, now he’s off to Balmorra so he can kill an agent of the dark side.

Jedi Knight-Sentinel-Watchman

2016-02-17_05-39-07 Now this is Awevae who is by chance a pure sith but I thought it would be interesting to have her as a Jedi Knight. I got her to level 51 and decided to take a break from her. She’s also in that slinky Republic Dancer outfit just for GP, I couldn’t decide what to dress her in ,and decided I wanted a different look for her. I have actually kept her pretty neutral when it came to Light Side and Dark Side decisions. I no longer go just for Dark Side, even though some of my natural instincts tell me too. Yes I am a dark natured person in general outside of SW:ToR, but I am a good person over all, and I try to reflect that in my character now as well. But a fellow SW:ToR player had inspired me to really play with a Dual wielding force user. Vulkk is a great person to learn from as I’ve watched a lot of his videos on YouTube for Jedi Knight-Sentinel spec in Watchman. So this got me thinking and after reading a few forums I decided I wanted to roll a new Sith Warrior as well.

Sith Warrior-Marauder-Annihilation

2016-02-17_19-20-20 Now this is the new Sith Warrior I made, Rhaqdon. I was on the main website watching the progression videos again trying to get an idea of how I wanted to customize him, even though I was not entirely sure of how it would turn out , or if anyone would notice, but some have actually. He looks directly like the progression trailer which you can watch here. The gear he has on is the Reaver set minus the head piece. The head piece I got from the level 8 Common Data Crystal Vendor on the fleet and it’s called Initiate’s Headgear , the light sabers are Dauntless Avenger’s Light Sabers , the color Crystals are Advanced Red Indestructible Crystal that I crafted on Awevae just for him. I may craft more and sale them on the GTN. But yeah I think he pretty much looks like this next image.

WarriorScreen01 This image is from the video I posted as a link above ,and I think I got him fairly close to looking like that one. But I’m happy with it, and as I was running around on the fleet before heading to DK to start his main missions, I got a whisper from someone that had noticed that I made a my marauder close to this progression trailer that we had all seen. It made me feel pretty damn good that someone had recognized that look, because I didn’t think people paid attention to the outfits anymore. Not since it’s so easy to change up, but this is his look for good at the moment. No dye packs, just in his all white glory ,and no He won’t be a nice guy either. The only thing I may change on his is the sabers if I find something else that I like. But with Awevae being a Artifice crafter now that is beginning to be an enjoyment sending idle comps off to either gather materials or craft for me as I play through. Course for as much as I can, I think I will also be using the Nexu companion I have recently unlocked as he does NOT talk at all. The affectionate hairball spit is something to be desired though, but he’s a kick ass companion that I’m happy to have. I’m now on the hunt for an Akk Dog. Then I’ll be happy. I don’t want no damn droids for my companions as HK’s and 2V-R8 and C2-N2 are enough droids for me. Anyways, this is what I’m doing now at the moment to fill the gap in between Chapters and not to burn myself out anymore on just finding fun things to do in SW:ToR.
