Good News…

 All the way around…..

With that, I finally got word about a fix coming on the 8th for agents not being able to complete chapter X, YAY Finally!, and also I’ve talked with the kid that was suppose to be Guild Master, and he has said it will be me that needs to become Guild Master. Sadly though CS won’t help move it, so now we just have to wait it out. I even capped screen shots for it because this is what he wants. Someone that is on all the time. And well, I am on all the time. So now I can start recruiting for <Elite Imperial Vanguard>, and this makes me excited because now things are starting to look up. I officially have a main on the Ebon Hawk Server now, so I am logged into Trayvae a lot more then I was originally planning. Radqa is my backup, along with the other names, that eventually will be in the guild. Our Recruitment message that is posted sometimes in starter planets, and Fleet is this.

<Elite Imperial Vanguard> is recruiting all active members. We are a new guild. Our Focus will be RP/PvP/PvE, but not mandatory. So if you’re interested in joining us, and come join our guild and help us create our legacy. Whisper for details, and for invite.

Well now sometimes the wording changes but at least it’s something. We do have a stronghold, but can’t decorate it at the moment thanks to the other person who disappeared offline without a word. Same with Guild Bank Access, and to edit memberships, tags, and etc. I have even been spending time on the fleet, roleplaying with others in the general area, and it’s been fun too. I even have my own PVP bodyguards when I need them. Amazing that this year is starting to look up for me. I met them on Rishi when I was trying to get the 3 Not so little Grophet’s achievement which I’m still searching for Wudd, since he’s being a pain in the ass to get. I was able to get the other 2 with no issues, but Wudd does not want to be found. I am also on the part in the heroic for The Shroud where you do the jumping bit to get to the boss before the final Heroic 4, still wish they would have made that easier to do. But eventually I’ll find someone that wants to do it, or help out at least.

 

What’s next in the agent life?

Well nothing til the 8th when the supposedly fix is to be launched with Chapter XI, not that I’m holding my breath on that. But I’ll keep busy until then. But I am starting to think it’s time to create our backstory, and with that I am planning on getting with my 2nd in Command, since no one else but us are on lately. Course that is only if his network connection will allow him longer than 5 minutes. Ironically I do not have issues with my network. Then again for as much money I pay Comcast Cable a month. It better be a good service.

 

2016-02-27_05-46-03 I still love this outfit on my agent though. I crafted this back when he was in the 50’s and haven’t changed it. Instead I put the 208 gear in front and have boosted his stats, plus I am also crafting my own Augment kits, which are MK-9, and the level 64 for him. While I’m working on others to boost their crafting skills as well. I have Radqa crafting in Artifice, and I’m going to be going with Kero’dow’urki who is my level 65 Chiss Bounty hunter with Armstech, I have Daeqius who is my level 65 Sith Inquisitor. Then there is Domidaq who is working on Biochem at the moment. I also have one working on Synthweaving as well. He’s low level 20’s and I made him into a Sith Warrior Marauder. My other names I just use for gathering materials, and items because I wasn’t into crafting, but now I can see the benefits of it all. I am also working on adding another Legacy, and Personal Cargo bays so that I can extra areas to store crafting material as well. I am really becoming serious about certain characters, while some of my others are going to remain hidden so I can have down time from the guild, even though I may just have them added for helping out lower level players. But that is what I’m doing now. Crafting, and finally becoming a serious player who is trying to build a base of friends in SWTOR. It only took me what a few years to shake the shell off fully.

 

A song I think fits an Agents Life.

I was listening to music one night while I was on Hoth, and I have a band that I so love, and if anyone knows about Mythology specially Egyptian then you know the name of RA, who is a sun god in Egyptian Mythology, and well as one of their songs pops up to play it reminds me of an Imperial Agent’s life and his/her story in SWTOR. The lyrics are well I’m going to Cut and Paste them, and provide a video with the song. Then you tell me if you think it fits an Agent’s life.

Genocide

Could it be that it didn’t happen
Could it be that I wasn’t there
I can swear that my eyes are open
But there’s nothing at which to stare
I remember the people dying
Staring blankly into the sky
Unaffected and undistracted
Redirected to pass them by

 

Cold as steel underneath my broken skin
I’m bleeding
Forced to feel
Devastation murder genocide

 

My reflection sometimes reminds me
In their image I was born
Technically I’m enhanced they tell me
From their minds my existence torn
They don’t know all the hate I’m feeling
They don’t see how it breeds inside
I’m afraid of the walls around me
I’m afraid but I cannot hide

 

There’s a reason that I met you
It’s to show me how to die
Simplify my wrong connection
Disconnect me where I lie
There is conflict all around us
There is conflict in my soul
Put an end to what’s beginning
To make me want to play my role

 

Enjoy the tunes, and thank you for reading. Have a wonderful day/night, weekend, or where ever you are in the world.

End of the year reflections.

How do they hinder game play?

I recently read a forum post about a player that is physically disabled with CP (Cerebral palsy) and instead of the community stepping up and offering him helpful suggestions on how they could become a better tank, they started to bash them instead , calling them a troll, and what not. Contrary to what players say, you do NOT have to have lightening reflexes, you just have to know your class, and advance class, and all their abilities. Use key bindings if you have too, I have tried in the past, but I tend to stop looking at the screen and click on my mouse so much that I just forget to even attempt to try key bindings. Regardless of having physical issues, even mental issues, picking on someone because they come out and say “Hey, I’m a little slow because I have a disability” does not give you the right to bash them because they choose to play an MMORPG. Now I did read all the posts before I started this post, and saw a few had given him/her good suggestions on how to play better as a tank, and I hope those are the ones he/she will read instead of all the hate. But it still raises a question as to the whether or not about gamers having no heart or for that matter common sense. If you play a tank role, and have done well in solo style, and attempt to play in a group content , still does not give anyone the right to bash them. Now me, I never qued as a Tank, I played as a DPS with a tank setting, and it worked out well for me. Then again I only did KYD a few dozen times and it was fun to do with others that just didn’t care what spec I was. Just that I could keep a live, and do things like run around hitting Kolto stations, and etc. Course as of late I just don’t have it in me to play much like I was in the past. I think that is because I just don’t have it in me to spend countless hours there at the moment. Grinding for my alliance is boring, and life day event is just blah since it seems to break all the other things that were suppose to happen. But I do have a mental condition. So because I have a short fuse, and self esteem issues, I tend to avoid group content. I believe even my trooper now has the Op for Oricon.

Year End Reflections

So for 2015 it was a great year for me in SW:ToR and by that I mean. I’ve been a sub for over a year now, met some great people through the blogs, made a solid stand as a solo player that tends to try and help others in game, or even on a blog to bring a smile during some depressing times. Even though I tend to hide behind that and let my own issues stay silent because that is how I am. So I am going to break this down month by month for my year end review, I mean why not, there are only 4 days left in the year, and we’re on the last week of this month.

January

Would play and hit the first level 60 player and beat Revan in SoR so many times by then that I became instantly numb from the achievement. Mainly stayed to myself and became a solid solo player that would group up on occasions.

February

Got my first achievement in crafting with a 500 in Cyber tech and Scavenging. Also finally got my first Sith Inquistor Daeqius to level 60 and finished his story line. Also got a Imperial Agent to level 60 and finished his class missions.

March

Still did my own thing in soloing, but also started planning out this blog only after realizing I was paying for hosting and a domain name that was rarely being used. Also started looking into other MMOs but did not get involved in them. Just put them as a possibility.

April

Ahhh this month became something more to me, because I finally started to blog a little, while still playing and taking screenies of my game..

May

I was also a part of a Community on google+ that was for SW:ToR fans, matter of fact I just recently rejoined, but it’s where I met Zernebog, who then introduced me to others like Ravanel Griffon who then introduced me to taking part in a blogging type thing, that I totally did not entirely do because I just don’t feel that my blogging style fits in anywhere ,Here is my list from the NBI that I took part in.

June

This month had a lot of ups and downs. I was social, then became unsocial and went back to solo style playing again. Left a good guild, and just dropped out of sight, but still posted blogs here and there. Started playing GW2, and started to take breaks from SW:ToR all together. Had a ton of posts in June too,

July

Was not a good month for me, I was sexually harassed and I did not like it, and it prompted me to leave for a week or two, or just limit who I played with, which was mostly my male characters because well I’ll be honest ERP just turns me off in the worse way. So I don’t want to deal with anything of that sort.

August

This month was okay I guess for me. Nothing really big, I just started  to avoid all the spoilers that were lurking about the latest expansion in SW:ToR

September

So at the end of August , beginning of Sept. I finally unlocked all the species to play in SW:ToR and had to only buy two of them because you can’t unlock them through game play and by hitting level 50. So yeah I had some great achievements this year as well.

October

Celebrated my 1 year subscription to my favorite MMO. Also I got into the early access for the latest expansion. Knights of the Fallen Empire, and got all the subscriber rewards that were offered if one was subscribed. I loved it all too because it meant a new way to play. Sadly though those 9 chapters went by toooo damn fast and now we’re left grinding out our alliances.

November

I stepped away from SW:Tor for a bit, and went to play LOTR, and Neverwinter, GW2 of course. But of course I always come back to SW:ToR all because I have so much time and money invested too, then my computer issues started to show up, and I opted to cut a lot of game play out for the most part. Plus SW:Tor was filled with more bugs than anything, like the despawn timer on dead bodies that plagued Heroic areas specially on DK with all the vine cats being piled upon one another.

December

Now this month I have celebrated my birthday, made it through Christmas with no fighting, instead on Christmas night, I found a site online to watch the new SW movie and we watched it with a bad cam image, but at least now I can say I have watched Star Wars:The Force Awakens. No I won’t give you spoilers on that movie. Like video games I don’t do spoiling shit. I let other assholes do that for you. I also decided to go back into the virtual world Second Life and started blogging mens fashions there since there are so many female fashion bloggers out there. Outside of the virtual worlds and games I celebrated my 1st christmas with Raven and she is the best thing in my life even when my partner and I fight a lot and have been for the last few months.

 

100_1189 This is Raven and I on Christmas night. Hence the date. I felt it fitting to update my RL Facebook picture with one of her and I because I felt it was time to move on from losing my 1st pup Sammie this year.

I still think of Sammie on day to day basis, and I still miss her, but I know in my heart she would want me to share the same love I gave her over to Raven, so I have done so, and will continue to love her just as much if not more , but also keeping sammie alive in my heart.

 

 

 

319942_4728824614097_414774170_n This was my baby girl Sammie and even though she is no longer with me in her doggie form, she is still in my heart and has helped me so much and now I realize that I must let Raven do the same as Sammie did for me. I am a dog lover and always will be. No one will ever take that away from me.

 

 

 

Anyways to end this post. There are a few more days left to this year, and I plan to make the most of them and bring 2016 in a good way, what I will do, is beyond me because I’m not sure how I will celebrate it yet. Enjoy your holidays where ever you may be, and thanks for reading.

It’s possible to

Level up

So I was over on Twitter today and seen this from the Old Republic.

 


Now me, I started a brand new Jedi Knight the other day and decided I was going to try and go at a slower pace. By that I mean doing Solo Flashpoints and Heroics that I haven’t done ever or did them in the past , and just never did them again. So I decided I was going to write a post about this since the servers are down at the moment for the usual maintenance that usually happens on Tuesdays. My newly created Jedi Knight is a Jedi Sentential with I believe watchman spec. Thanks to Vulkk for having his streams that I even wanted to try my hand at the Watchman spec for Jedi Sentential. So I spent the entire day playing this new Sent, on Coruscant and did most of the main missions along with story mission, also did all the Heroics, solo of course with my trust T7 at my side until I was forced to use Kira, I am not much of a fan with her because I just don’t like her. Her voice acting is one of those ones that I wanna rip the vocal cords out and etc. So I prefer to have T7 with me now. Course in the past it was Treek that I took with me all the time because of her epic healing abilities. Since 4.0 has went live and they changed how our companions are now, I don’t see the need to have Treek at my side all the time now. I still use her from time to time but not like I did in the past. She is and always will be the main companion for my Sith Inquisitor Daeqius because she was there from the door at level 10 when I was able to get her, and used her the most. But back to the story at hand. I decided I wanted to level up the long way, usually I do only story missions and forget everything else, so I arrive on Coruscant and take all the heroics, and do the Gree quest that you can do for the title. At the end of this starting main planet for her, she was leaving as a level 23, I believe. Next up was Taris, so they level sync’ed me down and I still walked away from the planet after all the main story arcs, the class missions and all the heroics at around 30 in my level. Before I left last night I used the famous “/played” to see how much time was used according to game time on them I did, it was sitting at 11 hours and 48 minutes of time played on that one character. So from level 1-31 I believe it took me almost 12 hours to get her up there. Now I’m on Nar Shaddaa and doing the same thing. Picking up heroics I missed in the past and said I would go back and do but never did. What I like the most about the leveling system is that if you only still do the class missions, and story arcs, you get decent XP and credits afterwards. With me, I decided I wanted to take the time and try to find a renewed interest in SW:ToR all the way around and I believe I found it this way. Plus with Heroics giving Common Data Crystals, and two pieces of gear it’s a great way for a new player to get what they need. The Relics are not bad, the implants and earpieces too, along with the other gear you get. I mean I really am enjoying this way to level up. It has also resparked an interest in my husband who stopped watching because it was the same old shit just a different character. He watched me go through the heroics, and different ways I did the class missions this time and it really sparked a good interest into him.

Life Day and Events

This month is all about events and celebrating Life Day, now for those of us that also have birthdays this month, along with Christmas, and New Years just gently knocking on our doors, it’s a great way for the community to have fun  too. Now ironically this years life day starts on my birthday to be exact. So  that’s a nice birthday gift from SW:ToR themselves. I celebrate my 38 years on this joyful planet we call “Earth” (Pun intended), But also today marks the start for the 4th Anniversary of SW:ToR as well. What an amazing feat this has been. So for those that do not know what current events are going on or will be going on, here is a snippet from the main website.

Events

  • Dec 8 – Dec 15: Relics of the Gree
  • Dec 8 – Jan 5: Log in for 4th Anniversary Rewards!
  • Dec 15 – Dec 22: The Rakghoul Plague
  • Dec 15 – Jan 5: Life Day
  • Dec 18 – Jan 1: Double XP
  • Dec 22 – Dec 29: Bounty Contract Week

For Life Day this year we have made a few changes to the rewards. All previously available rewards, including some items previously only available on the, are available for purchase with Snow-Covered Parcels from the Master of Ceremonies on each Faction’s Fleet. Additionally, we have a few new Cartel Market items in honor of Life Day and one of them might be a tank that shoots snowballs, seriously.

Conquests

  • Dec 8: Relics of the Gree
  • Dec 15: Rakghoul Resurgence
  • Dec 22: Death Mark

So there you have it in a nutshell all the goodies that are and will be going on for this month. Now me, well I don’t do conquests as I believe those are designed for Guilds, and since I still don’t join them anymore. I will just do what I normally do. I may take a few of my 65’s and try to build up my rep with the Gree , but other than that, I don’t normally do it. Anyways it’s time to load the launcher, update it, and go play for a few hours. Happy gaming Tuesday, and thanks for reading.

 

Bodies everywhere

Is it a Murder scene from a movie?

swtor 2015-11-20 14-36-47-51 As you may have noticed recently that the despawning of dead bodies has been broken. So when you travel to a heroic area on any planet, all you see is the mass death bed with aliens, creatures, humans, etc. I for one saw this and instantly thought of the Drowning Pool song, “Let the Bodies hit the floor” a song that I still love to this day because it was something I enjoyed. It’s even funnier when you go into the Dark Temple there at Dromund Kaas and see all the dead explorers, imperial troops and etc. But seriously these bugs and that is all they are is bugs can be a deal breaker for some. So when venturing into areas on planets that you see a lot of dead bodies. Have fun searching for whatever goodies you are looking for in that area, it is a pain in the ass let me tell ya. But now onto the next topic of my post here. It’s a good one too. Well at least it was for me.

Some people never learn

I decided to venture over to the Jedi Covenant server today on my Bounty Hunter who is 60-61 and just go to the temple to see this mass murder site. Yes I’m an odd one and love to see things like this in video games. Upon entering the temple I see bodies piled up along the way. I am laughing hard because I know this is a bug, but also it saddens me because it does lag the hell out of any system at the moment. That much dead pixels clogs up your graphics rendering in an instant. So upon entering the temple I make my way through the bodies and see that the respawns are there already. Interesting to say the least.

J101-skull-with-two-middle-fingers-black-02I go to the heroic area there and get greeted by a guild who had me laughing as they were mostly just new alts or players. Whatever they are. Anyways I decided to use the infamous “/sit” and proceed to sit down and watch all the bodies still yet piling up when in general chat I get this “Dude please go away.” I ignore it, because I’m not there for the heroic and etc. Well I am, but I’m a nice player and let everyone have their chance before taking mine. It’s just called common courtesy. I tend to forget in any MMO not everyone is that nice, and they feel the need to whip it out and prove they are bigger and badder. Anyways I’m just sitting there watching the bodies pile up more and more with the two elites behind me, and the two in front of me. These guys respawn like crazy. Still just reading general chat when I see this. “Will all the people not with <Insert  Guild Name> Please leave the heroic area in the Dark temple.” That just made me go, “WTF” and well prompted me to turn into an instant asshole with a remark that had others just dying from laughter. My response was something along the lines of. “You can’t make me leave an area that is opened up to the entire public in an MMO, You don’t own this area, nor the game for that matter, and you tend to forget everyone has a right to go where ever the hell they damned well please.” Then he breaks out in all caps lock on me, and I’m like really dude? You’re gonna try and scare me with caps lock? Please I’m probably older than you, been online way longer then you have, and have words that even your grandmother would flip a lid on. By this time people are posting “LOL”, “LMAO” and etc because this kid if he was a kid thinks he is gonna scare me away from an area that mind you I’m not in the middle waiting for the respawn. I’m just sitting there watching them be dicks in my book. He says he’s been trying at least 10 times to get the respawn, but others just keep coming in and taking his kill after he attacks. Ahhh no it does NOT work that way pal. If you attack first, you get the goodies, not the other way around. Then another player says in chat that he was there about half an hour ago and all they were doing was dueling while waiting for the respawn. So Aha, you been busted there chump. I decide well hell with it. Let them be the little pussies they are, and before leaving I announce in gen chat that their guild name was wrong and should have named themselves “Unlimited Pussies” because that is all they are. They had to get their GM who was suppose to scare me at level 65, and all he did was stand there doing squat. So here is my two finger salute to you guys for proving a point I was testing out.

A recent whisper I had

So I went back over to The Ebon Hawk server and was doing things on Daeqius when a curious whisper pops on my end. They go, we’ve seen you around DK, and etc over the last few weeks, but when hovering it says you do not have a guild, so their question was why? It’s fairly simple. I don’t play on one character for long, and when I do, it’s only because I need something from said character, or whatever reason. Plus I am not really into the social aspects of a guild or anything. From the times I want to try Operations and etc. I just decline to even attempt because I do not want to become a liability for my fellow players. Same reasons I don’t really PVP anymore as well. I mean granted I watch a lot of YouTube videos and read a lot of mechanics and etc., but still I am just not into all that. I am a causal player that just does my own thing. I play solo because it’s what I’ve become good at. I do group up occasionally on lower things, or Kuat Drive Yards, but it is very rare that I do that now. Since the nerf of my companions Daeqius has all the Heroics for each planet sitting in mission logs not able to do them just yet. All I see on the planet are people asking for 220 Hilts, (main hand), 200+ gear and mods, and I haven’t been able to get all that yet. I don’t do end game stuff or I would have it. I know I keep trying and then just stop because I don’t want to do it anymore. I don’t want to become a liability for another group. I have to much anxiety online even to attempt to make a real attempt anymore. I’m not a social butterfly as many think I should be. I just can’t deal with groups or crowds anymore. I want too, and I try, but I just fall short and realize that maybe just maybe. It is NOT meant for me. I’m sure a lot out there probably feel like this, and just are to afraid to admit it. It’s no longer fear of doing it. It is just when one’s anxiety level hits a point they know when to stop, and that is what I have done recently over the last few months. I stopped before it got to much to handle.

POT5 Server

 

IA-Rurn

Yesterday I decided it was time I really do an honest legacy level up, and new characters. So I went to POT5 after hearing everyone say that it’s a dead server, I decided for a newbie like me in PVP and Group stuff, that would be the perfect server. So I rolled a Chiss I.A. , so meet Rurn’ises’vimeo my newly created Imperial Agent Operative. Now code name:Cipher Nine. While running around DK doing my normal class quest, I qued for PVP, Group Finder, Star fighter. Just to get his feet wet so to speak, well I can say an Operative PVP is nice. I was used for a punching bag during one WZ match. I didn’t complain, it was done in all fun. I decided that I would really start fresh totally and with server transfer’s still down I figured well this was the perfect time to spread across yet another server. Well here is a sneak peak of my freshly designed Legacy:Starsnow

swtor 2015-09-19 10-17-07-02 swtor 2015-09-19 12-30-41-23 swtor 2015-09-19 12-47-12-50 swtor 2015-09-19 12-49-02-09 swtor 2015-09-19 14-04-35-42 swtor 2015-09-19 14-09-21-10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All this was done in the 7 hours I played today. Yes I played 7 hours today and decided I had enough and wanted to go do a blog post, maybe some guild wars 2, even second life, before going to find a decent movie ondemand. Not to mention I did this while taking Raven out in between for her potty breaks. So yeah I have decided to give it a straight try and just more importantly have fun doing PVP and group stuff. I probably won’t be back on the other servers for a while now, but it’s not all that bad. I decided I wanted to do something totally off the wall from my everday normal and etc. Plus it will also help keep me from getting bored to much before the new content is released next month. I don’t even think I’ll be joining a  guild on this server, course I see next to no recruitment statements made in general chat, which is good for me, because it was getting to the point I wanted to shut off Gen chat anymore because of it. Not sure what else I will be rolling over on the POT5 server , but I started the Empire side first, I may end up rolling a Sith Warrior next, and so forth. Haven’t decided much of anything yet. Just figured this would keep me in SW:ToR until next month when everything comes out. Anyways Happy gaming Saturday!!
