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.

 

 

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?

 

 

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.
