PostSubject: 2.0 What are you excited for most?   Fri Apr 05, 2013 6:15 pm

Looking at SWTOR's site today I realized that early access is only a few days away, and with it will come a ton of changes to the game. It also made me realize I haven't asked anyone what they're most excited for?

I'm most excited for seeing all the new class changes and what BioWare changed between closing the PTS and letting 2.0 hit live. However, this is tied with getting to exploring Makeb and seeing what trouble I can get myself into.

A new planet will be refreshing. I'm going to take my time (relatively, of course) and take Dhoom'bah through it so he'll be my first 55 and I can tank whatever the guildies need.

I'm still really hoping they have a surprise or two up their sleeves they haven't revealed yet. Like, some new feature or FP/WZ/Op they haven't announced that will just suddenly be there.

Or, Celestia forbid, new story content for each class.

I'm looking forward to people wanting to do Ops again, and tanks being viable in PvP.

Looking forward to playing SW:ToR for more than 10 minutes before wanting to do something else.

Also: Justifying paying $15 a month.

Firstly, seeing the old and boring content refreshed for the new levels - increased difficulties make more familiar things much more fun and interesting. This also includes the Operations - looking forward to finally having a chance to get some proper Dread Guard gear for a change.
Secondly, the conversion of commendations. Heck, Ziodus, who will officially become my main character as soon as Tuesday brings what we all want, will be in full Campaign (save for one Columi Relic and a Rakata earpiece) with some DG pieces (Relic - belt and bracers already with 63-level armourings) due to the amount of stuff stored across several of my characters. Selfish reason, yeah, I know. But hey.
Thirdly, the new content. Of course, S&V is gonna be a long time away for me, but I hope to visit Makeb at least once this next month - no telling, sadly, however.

Curious to see how hey handle fresh-50s in the expansion with the removal of Tionese, Columi and Rakata gear.
Not looking forward to the changes in terms of Vanguard tanking gear or skill-trees, though I doubt Kira will see much use in the Expansion.

Here's hoping it's worth the money and the wait.

As an added question: What character will you be leveling to 55 first?

I think I'll go Shadow(Pve) -> Scoundrel(PvP dailies) + Gunslinger(Pve) -> everything else.

I'm going based on what I think the guild will need for Ops.

Goopy (DPS) > Angelfluttershy (Healer) > Lick'my (Tank) > Tangy (DPS) + Glossy (Healer) using PvP

I think I'll probably maybe most likely level Pinkie first. I think.

Sage (main pub raid/PvP) - Juggernaut (main imp raid/possibly PvP with new bolster) - Vanguard (secondary raid) - Scoundrel (secondary raid/PvP) - Sentinel (not even 50 will be secondary raid/PvP)

Ooh, good question.

Ziodus will be the character I'll get up first, as he's the one who, by the end of Tuesday, will be best prepared for content on and beyond Makeb, as he will be in at least full Campaign. Kira, who still has some Rakata and Columi in a midst of Black Hole gear, will be after him. Then Lackey, who is now a DPS as opposed to a healer as he was before, and is in a mixture of Black Hole, Rakata, Columi, Tionese and Recruit PvP Mk1 (relics only) gear.
After Lackey, it will probably be Vorilakor, who is the closest to 50 of any of my other characters. As I've recently rediscovered my Jedi Guardian's PvE tanking prowess (although I still cannot hack PvP on him...), he'll probably be my next one - I need the Jedi Knight legacy buff, anyway, and I despise the Imperial levelling process compared to Republic, so my Juggernaut won't be seeing much action on that front.

Reason for my order? Of the 50s, mostly gear-level, but also in order of enjoyment and flexibility. For example, I really, really enjoy Lackey's DPS, but due to his constant need to be behind a target, he really is not as flexible for difficult enemies (such as the Infernal Council fight in EV), unlike Kira and Ziodus. I've thoroughly enjoyed finally having a Commando at level 50 (took four bloody troopers to get there!), and after I-don't-know-how-long of tenuous tanking, I've enjoyed just sitting back and comfortably learning how to engage in the fights Kira wouldn't otherwise have made. I'm also looking forward to doing more of the same when Zio's at 55 and I have time to go raiding again. Hopefully, this time, I'll be able to contribute effectively...
For the other characters, it's mainly how close they are to 50. I have deliberately left out my Sniper from TTOFN in the Europe servers because I mainly created her to explore the possibility of a later transfer, something which, due to a vastly more manageable connection to the server on which this guild is based, is no longer sought.

@ Skardahn

Yeah, tanking isn't for everyone, while there is no set rule, it helps if the tanks can lead the raid. If you do still want to tank Pinkie and I are willing to help (just don't ask about Shadows) but unless you are comfortable with keeping one eye on the group there isn't much we can do. Adaptability and and crisis management are great assets for any raider but twice as important to any good tank.

On the other hand a Grav round spammer will usually get a raid spot if he can pull the numbers. RDPS is also the easiest role to observe the raid on and learn the perks (safe for healers in low healing intensive fights).

@ Luna

You gonna join us or stay on EU?

Indeed, it is live.

25 credits says we see ten people claim "world first" on obtaining level 55 by the end of the day.

Changing it to:

Finish Makeb story, get bored, replay Dark Souls and Final Fantasy X for the 20th time while still having fun

Might still go to 55 depending on the time you place S&V. But by next week my sub is gone

Probably not going to be playing this game again.

Like the probability that I'll ever get a character past level 50 is basically 0 so you can remove me as an officer if you like.

Understandable, it was nice having you guys around while it was still fun for you. We'll keep playing Steam games from time to time so if you see us in L4D2 or something feel free to join.

It was great knowing and seeing you guys in-game, and, although it's a shame that the game isn't quite your 'cup of tea' anymore, I hope that you had fun while your time lasted; I can quite understand exactly why one mightn't want to keep playing - all things, good and bad, must come to an end at some point, right?



On another note: I doubt that I'll get any of my other characters beyond 50. Other than properly gearing up Ziodus for level-55 content, my obligations to the game now entail of getting my Jedi Knight beyond chapter 2, for the Legacy buff, and seeing if I can finally get an Imperial class finished. Nothing else matters now, really.

ToR really isn't for everyone in the long term, and that is totally understandable. I would have quit myself long ago if not for the assholes wonderful people in the guild. Smiiile!

Like Shy said, don't be strangers. Feel free to come into Mumble and hang out if you are ever bored, and play some other games with us if you'd like.

Not ToR, MMOs in general. I still haven't touched GW2 since reaching ~59.
The difference was that ToR has interesting class stories.
Makeb has none. I don't feel like doing the same things 6 times.

And naked, unbalanced PvP didn't look interesting (there are matches where you die in 5 seconds every single time. Fairly certain bolster is making people do even crazier things than just the +300MS from naked).

Gave it another shot today leveling with Cloud hoping it was just the healing scoundrel that bored me.
It wasn't.
