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.

 

 

Changes and Challenges

How I am starting something new

I know I said in the past that I would never step foot into the PVP Realm again in SWTOR all cause of the toxic players, but guess what, I spent my day yesterday playing on two different characters at higher levels playing PVP, first up was Trayvae, and I was looking in my Companion Contact list and one thing kept annoying me. I am the type of person that wants the List to stop that damn gold flashy thing in the menu bar that sits at the top of my screen. I’m sure we all know how that feels, and secondly I wanted to use the flags and stuff I had collected on new toons that I have created since they gated the Republic and Imperial Banners behind having Valor for start SH decos, which doesn’t make much sense since most don’t PVP at early levels or if they do, whatever. I am a Decoration addict. There I admitted it, I have no shame in it. Plus this also helps me learn things about myself, grouping up, working as a team, and making some friends. While most that are doing PVP now is to grind for new gear since the unassembled pieces need are locked to PVP only, and that’s cool with me. But I also wanted to get Peirce on my Sniper, just something about having him hanging out with a Sniper sounded more cool than having him on my Warrior. Then after awhile I decided okay well I need to get my smuggler to level 70 and to grind that out in PVE is just soooo damn brutal and slow, so I opted to take my Charming Outlaw Jordelli into the realm of PVP as well to get 4x on the roster as well, and guess what, I explained to everyone that was yelling at all the CXP farmers that no one was there to honestly play, that is when I said. Actually I’m here for the challenge of learning PVP at a higher level, so that I’m not afraid to play it anymore. It shocked everyone on both my Imp team, and when I said it on my Pub team, they were like, wow, didn’t think anyone would want to play for the sake of playing. I said, well I’m not all that fast, nor that experienced in PVP, but if Bioware is making it worth while to group up for somethings, I’ll welcome the challenge any day of the week, and plus if you experienced PVPers have any suggestions on helping me out, I’m all ears. With that said, they told me where I’d be best suited and mostly it was Guarding nodes, or what have you, and when I was using Tray, they had me in positions to snipe people and were amazed that I had that an eagerness to listen or read what they were typing to me. I told them only way people will ever learn is by reading, watching videos, and etc., and that I was sick and tired of living vicariously through others during their PVP adventures on YouTube and what not, and they laughed because they could understand how I was so unaware of going into PVP with all the toxic attitudes and what not, but the people I met up in unranked solo were understanding, and happy that I wasn’t there for CXP grind only.

Plus I just have this thing now about the personal conquest objects now that I know I can do it. Plus some had helpful advice on the guild I am in once the match was over, or we were in between objects waiting for next round. I told them about how I also checked and seen that the old GM also let his sub lapse and now that I am the only qualified account. They agreed that I should keep the Guild since I am one of the last founding founders of it. They said it would be more helpful if I went to starter planets like Hutta and Korriban and try recruiting there. I also told them that instead of a heavy RP guild, I wanted it to be like a safe haven for those that are learning the game, and want to join an social aspect of it, and they agreed that a lot are just unsure how to function in a guild, and I also told them it would be for those that are having a hard time with the game in general, and or a mental health for MMOs as well, and they thought it would be a wonderful idea to have a guild for that kind of thing.

So for the time being, these are the two that I will be PVPing with until I decide to jump in with someone else, something else to do, since I am willing to learn and play and  try my hand at all things in the game now. Next will be probably SM Operations, and what not.

Trayvae The Manipulator LvL 70 Sniper:Engineering, Guild Master to Elite Imperial Vanguard

The Outlaw Jordelli -Scoundrel:Ruffian LvL 70, Kicks ass and takes names for later, and always looking for the easy payday!!

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?

 

 

A Few Things

Challenges and Changes

So recently I took a challenge upon myself during my time on Trayvae in SWTOR, that challenge was to try and see if I could do my personal conquest for this week and well I did it actually. My very first conquest for personal gain in the guild. Even though the guild is pretty dormant because the GM hasn’t logged in for 21 days now. I’m not sure what I can and can’t do at the moment in the guild other than invite people. But I think this guild needs to change from a RP One over to a Casual guild with PVE, PVP , RP all the options should they want it. But with no word or no way to get intouch with the GM at the moment I don’t know how to move forward in this. For the moment I’m not worrying about that because if he doesn’t come back on before the 30 days is up. It’ll be transferred over to me since I’m a subscriber, and I log Trayvae in a lot too. Back to my personal challenge for myself. I also finally got my max in crafting this past week as well.

Not a bad little feat if I may say so myself. It’s not everyday I decide to challenge myself or what have you to something as minor as this. I am still unsure if I want to attempt to put Trayvae into PVP to get Pierce into my alliance. I just want to get that one and Bowdarrs missions out of my damn alliance windows. That blinking is driving me up the wall, I know I can’t do Eternal Championship because I keep trying and dying a lot more than I care for, so I just opted to stay out of it until I find a group, or this guild that I helped Co-found comes back to life somehow. Then again I haven’t tried to run anything in a long time either. Last time I tried to run a clan/guild of sorts was back in the late 90’s early 2000’s when I ran a Vampire Clan/ House what have you. Then it was easy because it was all text base turn style RP.

Little by little I am starting to do a lot more with SWTOR again and I’m enjoying it again for the first time in a long time. Course right now I have another new agent sitting at level 50, and I don’t know if I’m going to take her through KOTFE and KOTET just yet. I have 20 levels to go before she hits level 70, but of course I’m going back through and taking my smuggler through the rest of KOTFE, and trying to get a few others on Ebon Hawk to level 70. Right now that is my goal to have all 8 classes at level 70. I know what drives me to do this? Your guess is as good as mine. Personal achievement maybe, or just plain fun, or a little bit of both.

This is the new agent that I took up to level 50 before stopping for a bit and taking a sizable break with her. Of course though before finishing the agent story yet again I had to stop and laugh at a few things on Voss. Now mind you I had Blade sitting here with me when I decided to start stealthing around on Voss and sleep darting everything I could. Some times I often wonder about our minds when we are together because sometimes we just find anything and turn it perverted in nature. I guess that is what happens when you have a good relationship with someone even though at times I wanna choke him or tranqualize him like the Agent can do. Or hell even wish I could shoot lightening at him as well to shock some sense into him. But anyways while dealing with the Gormak Monstrosity I decided to be behind one of these things as I sleep darted him before attacking him and well………This next image will say the words for me……………..

 

Just don't ask what I was thinking about this image!!

A Perverted mind is a deadly thing at times

 

Call Me Crazy……

But I decided that I would go through all the classes and take them through both KotFE an KotET only because I wanted to see certain things for each class, but I’m not taking all the ones I’ve already walked through KotFE with. Nope, I started too, but with way gearing was changed, how things were changed in their combats and etc. I decided to start fresh, I had a few characters over on the Begeren Colony that never made it past level 20, I had stopped playing there and walked away, so I went back to that server, deleted them after robbing them all blind of their credits, and started again with a new set of characters. First up to make it all the way through of course was my Republic Trooper Jasarein Ryder. I reversed her name from my main on Ebon Hawk from Reinjasa to Jasarein. I did move one character over from Ebon Hawk with a ton of credits, and all the stronghold unlocks, so now I have all 5 strongholds on Begeren as well. I did that so I could give each one a unique home to live in. This time Jasarein took the Yavin-4 SH and is currently working on it and how I want it to set up for the Republic Trooper to live. Vhaem Ojers who is currently coming through her main story as a Merc Bounty Hunter is taking Tatooine for her stronghold a Mando style stronghold is what I’m going to work with for her. I have decided this time I was going to do all the non force users first to get their stories out of the way and what not.

Of course as like with Rein, I decided I was going to romance Aric again on Jasa, only cause it seemed fitting. While so many are wanting to romance the newer companions I am still quite fond of some of the originals like Aric for instances. Now it took me roughly 3-4 days to get her to level 70, and into the CXP grind, and through all the stories that now I am going back to finish up some things I didn’t with her once I hit the ability to jump from RotHC, SOR, Ziost, and then into KotFE and then off to KotET. The other thing I wanted to point out too is that well before Jasa had hit KotFE I had already gotten Aric up to rank 35 in influence with my companions. I did that by using the 3 unlocks in the character perks system of my legacy, even though I rarely gave him any gifts most of his approvals came from the stories that I had played out with him.

 

I have no idea why I decided I was going to do this challenge for myself, only because I had gotten use how to play certain classes before 5.0 dropped that now I am wanting to relearn them from the beginning so that I know which was changed and what wasn’t. I hate having to use old characters to relearn anything, but I have them now as my crafters on the Ebon Hawk server, and I plan on taking some of the newer ones on Begeren and making them into crafters as well. One thing I did notice for Trayvae on the Ebon Hawk server is that I no problems getting Schematics from the CXP Grind crates. As for guilds well Jasa remains free from guilds and that is a good thing I did receive one invite to one without even being asked if I wanted to join it, and I declined it instantly as no information was given, and I didn’t care for the title of it. I understand people want one gender only type guilds, but in all honesty if they are saying “The badgirls Guild” or something along those lines. Doesn’t mean that women are actually playing women characters. I know a lot of males that play women characters and their thinking is like mine along those lines, if you’re going to be playing a character a lot to get them to level up and etc. If you are a male, you don’t wanna see a males ass all day long, so they opt to play females, and the same goes for some women, we don’t wanna see a woman’s ass day long, so we opt to play a male, but I generally play both cause I am a tomboy, and it’s easy for me to switch demeanor of being an all out girly girl, to a full fledged get in your face and knock you on your ass type attitude for me. I have also decided that all my classes will always be DPS, it’s not that I don’t want to learn how to be a healer or a tank, but I’m not looking for added pressure either in a game I just come in to play on my own time, and do things my way, and not get yelled at for it either. Tanks get a lot of heat, same with healers if you’re not up to par for the task, so yeah I’ll stick to just being a DPS fighter since it’s a comfortable zone for me and I enjoy it a lot more, since I make my companions into tanks all the time and I don’t have to worry to much about their health.
