(Mostly) Non Spoiler First Impressions of Onslaught

As excited as I was for Onslaught to come out I didn’t play the latest expansion until recently. I tried to run my toons through it when it first came out, but truthfully I need a new computer. The updated graphics are starting to become too much for my crappy laptop to handle.

I had to use my brother’s computer to finish playing Jedi Under Siege when it was first released. I could get through most of JUS on my laptop, but for some reason the final cutscene was too much for the graphics card to handle and it always froze. The same kept happening whenever I tried to play Onslaught and eventually resigned myself to waiting until I could afford to buy a gaming computer to play any further in the game. And since my bank account is a little tight right now and will be for the foreseeable future, I figured several expansions would be out before that happened.

However, my wonderful sister came to the rescue and showed me how I could change the graphics settings on my Windows 8 laptop to be more compatible with the game. The graphics look a lot better and I was able to get through both Jedi Under Siege and Onslaught with minimal trouble. I will still need a better computer someday soon, but for now the new graphics settings will get me through SWTOR.

With that being said, as soon as I could play Onslaught I eagerly ran my BH through it for the first time and found it highly enjoyable in spite of how short it was. If you haven’t played Onslaught as a spy I would recommend doing so because it was a lot of fun sabotaging the Empire’s efforts and then watching the Sith act pathetically grateful when I’d tell Darth Malgus nobody was to blame. I will admit that I did get the feeling Darth Malgus suspected my BH and was genuinely terrified that he would force choke her and throw her out an airlock.

I won’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to spoil anyone who hasn’t played Onslaught yet, but I am very intrigued with the direction the devs are taking the story and look forward to finding out more about the plague they introduced and where they plan on taking Darth Malgus’ story next.

There are two things I would like to talk about. The first was the surprise flirt response toward Darth Malgus. My first reaction was to cringe because he essentially looks like a walking corpse, but I am curious if they mean to actually do anything about that potential relationship or is it a light flirtation made to appease those who have wanted that for awhile? If the devs are planning a romance that raises many speculations regarding his continued story.

The second was the surprising reference to The Force Awakens that can be found in the Force Enclave in the Odessen Base. I was very excited to see it and told my sister all about it even though she probably wished I would shut up since she hasn’t played Onslaught yet. In the enclave there’s a droid showing a map to two certain returning companions that looks similar to the map R2D2 showed where he revealed the location of Luke Skywalker. I thought it a fitting reference since the two companions are searching for the lost ship.

Honestly, if I had been smarter I would have dragged out Onslaught because now I’m chomping at the bit for more and it sounds like new story content won’t be out until later in the year. As much as I loved Onslaught I am hoping that whatever they come out with next will be a lot longer and that there will be more to the story. It kind of felt, not exactly rushed, but like they could have introduced more, except they were using Onslaught as a filler leading up to the new storyline. And since Jedi Under Seige also felt like a filler it was disappointing to have two fillers in a row.
In the meantime, I’m going to be running some of my other toons through Onslaught. My Jedi knight will probably be next since I’m curious to see how the story plays differently on a purely light side character.

My First Blogiversary

It has officially been a year since I started this blog. Technically, I should have written on July 20th to coincide with my first blog post, but on the 20th I was busy all day trying to rack up a good amount of CQ points toward guild conquest and completely forgot about the anniversary.

Looking back it’s been a good year, not only for me, but this blog as well. I never expected it to last long to be honest because I wasn’t sure whether I’d get bored with it eventually or tired of basically writing to myself since I never expected any followers or readers.

In a previous post I wrote a little bit of why I started this blog and how I wanted an outlet to geek out over my obsession with SWTOR, which is true, though not the whole story. I was hesitant to say anything about my main reason for starting this blog because I’m not looking for sympathy and quite frankly I don’t like talking about my personal life. However, in many ways an incident in my life lead me to begin both writing this blog and play SWTOR more.

I started writing this blog as a sort of therapeutic way of coping with what I was going through at the time. My parents had divorced after 29 years of marriage and since my mother ended up with the house, my dad had no where to go. So he bought an RV and has been traveling as a nurse for the past two and a half years. My youngest sister and I are living with him for moral support. My brother also lived with us in the RV at one point, but now he’s living else where because he needed to pay off his students loans and couldn’t do that with our father moving every three or so months to work at different hospitals.

My dad was a complete wreck after the divorce since he had tried so hard to salvage his marriage and my mother just threw it all back in his face. I’m afraid I didn’t take it well either. I don’t have many close friends, so I counted my mom as my best friend and looked up to her and always strove to please her in any way I could. Seeing her turn against my dad for no good reason shocked me to the core.
After my parents divorce, there were times I felt numb and like all of this was a bad dream and if I could only wake up from this nightmare, everything would go back to the way it used to be. I went through the typical stages of grief, but honestly I couldn’t handle my own thoughts on most days so I eventually started doing whatever I had to, to not think about how my life had turned upside down. At first I binge watched Netflix for several months and then I moved on to playing games. Eventually settling on SWTOR.

I had been playing SWTOR off and on for about a year and a half by then, though I hadn’t devoted much time to it because my mother didn’t approve of games. During this time it dawned on me just how much control I let her have of my life and how much of it I had wasted doing whatever she wanted me to do instead of getting on with my life. So when I tentatively started playing SWTOR nearly every day I felt guilty at first until I realized I didn’t actually care what my mom thought anymore.

It was like a flood gate opened. I started playing SWTOR every day — finally allowing myself to become obsessed with gaming and embracing my inner nerd like never before. There was still a part of me that felt like I should be guilty for the amount of time I spent playing games and starting this blog helped me get over that. I’m not completely over what my mom did, but I am getting better and I can contribute that to this blog and to the many wonderful people I have met in-game since then. This blog has gone beyond a mere therapeutic exercise to something I truly enjoy and want to continue for the foreseeable future and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for my life both in real life and in the game.

Humorous Glitches

Lately, I’ve been neglecting SWTOR in favor of replaying Dragon Age: Inquisition, and then from there I started on the Assassin’s Creed franchise for the first time. I’ve already finished the first game and began Assassin’s Creed II yesterday.

Because I’ve been spending so much time playing other games my SWTOR blogging has taken a hit since I log in long enough to make conquest for the toons in my guild and then spend the rest of the week playing Assassin’s Creed. Which is why I decided to talk about something that happened a couple weeks ago seeing as I really need to get back in the habit of blogging.

I wrote in an earlier post that my main stronghold was Nar Shaddaa for my bounty hunter. Awhile ago I decided to move to my Rishi stronghold because it’s bigger and there was more room to set things up the way I wanted to. So, it had been some time since I’d stepped foot in my Nar Shaddaa stronghold.

A couple weeks ago, I needed to go to Nar Shaddaa for something, I can’t remember why, and decided to travel to my stronghold and exit to the planet from there.

Now, I’m sure nearly everyone knows about the glitch where random naked companions show up to some of the older strongholds. When I arrived, the entrance had a few naked companions loitering around and other than chuckling about it for a few seconds — I thought nothing of it. Since I was there I went ahead and grabbed a few decorations I’d left behind and as I wandered through the stronghold I realized that something really weird was going on.

I’m used to two maybe three naked companions showing up and standing at attention in their underwear, but this time nearly every companion was in my stronghold, including a few that have to be bought. The sight was so amusing I had to take screenshots of them.

I’m convinced they were throwing a party without me and things got a little out of hand.

I’ve seen a lot of people complain about this glitch and wish Bioware would fix it. I hope they never do. I had a good laugh that day and it was hilarious to pretend that the commander of the alliance caught her people red handed at a wild party.

There are plenty of annoying glitches like your clothes wrapping around you or even the game breaking glitches that sometimes occur, but not all glitches are without humor. All though I definitely can’t wait for them to fix the glitch that is currently going on where your head falls off. That is a little too creepy even for me.

Companion Leveling Part 2

So a few months ago, I talked about how I spent a few days on Coruscant, building up Aric Jorgan’s affection level to thirty through gifts and sending him on missions. I’ve been continuing to level him up and the rest of my companions whenever I log into my trooper. Every time I gain a new companion, I’ve been taking them to the fleet to buy gifts and level them up to fifteen before sending them on crew missions. Jorgan has recently made it to level forty and everyone else is between level twenty and twenty-eight.

The results have been interesting. The difference in combat between Aric Jorgan and the rest of them is astounding. I never realized just how much better the companions are at fighting once they reach a certain level and I can only imagine what it will be like once I get them all to level fifty. It is hard work though. Since I’ve started this little project of mine, I’ve been constantly sending the companions on missions, which means that I’m always low on credits for that character. There have been a few times when I’ve had to stop sending them on missions and go do a bunch of heroics to build up my credits again. It’s a little frustrating how much of a credit sink it is just to level them up, but I’d rather not raid my legacy bank even if it would make things easier. I’ve also been trying to level up my companions on my BH, though that’s taking a little more time since I have so many companions.

My trooper has been continuing to progress in the main story and has reached Belsavis, which means I’m at the beginning of chapter 3. My goal is to have all of my companions leveled to fifty by the time I start Knights of the Fallen Empire. I still have a ways to go to get there since I have a couple planets to go to before the class story is finished, as well as Ilum, The Rise of the Hutt Cartel, and Shadow of Revan expansions. In spite of that given how long it has taken me to get Jorgan from level thirty to forty, I can’t help wondering if I would be able complete my side project if I continue going through the story uninterrupted. The answer seems unlikely. So I’ll probably end up taking a small break before starting Ilum to try leveling my companions a little more. I would like to enjoy all of them being at level fifty before I lose them.

Some day I’ll probably use the Commander Compendium to get future companions leveled, but I wanted to experience on at least one character what it would be like to get the original companions to fifty through crew skills. So far it has been an interesting experience albeit a very expensive one.

The Road So Far

It is going on four months since I joined the Mandalorians guild and it has had its ups and downs. Thankfully for the past couple of months the officers have been cracking down on a lot of the stuff that were going on, which I talked about here. It’s also helped that they have begun encouraging players to join their discord where they make most of the announcements regarding events happening.

The only change I wouldn’t mind seeing at this point is that they were less casual as a guild. Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact they don’t demand anything from their members except to be nice to everyone. I love how they log in and just talk before calling it a night. It makes the atmosphere in the game very homey, but there are times when they are too casual. It was nice seeing them trying to compete in conquest for three weeks, but then the guild as a whole lost their momentum and we slipped back into our usual fourth place on the leader board. Not that, that’s a bad thing. It’s something to be proud of that we’re even on the top ten list every week. The reason for my discontent is that we have the numbers to take large yield planets if we were to utilize them correctly. Unfortunately, the only way for us to conquer planets is to switch to medium yield and that kind of feels like cheating since the guilds who usually go for medium yield have fewer members than us.

While I do think there should be a healthy balance between a casual guild and a high yield conquest guild…I certainly understand why they wouldn’t want to try competing against The Sanctuary. From what I understand, they are very much a hardcore conquest guild and the one time we tried to beat them was exhausting.

Even if we never go beyond casual, I am glad that we are becoming better as a guild and that the officers are taking an interest in the game again.

One thing that I’ve been struggling with since joining a guild is playing my other toons. When I was a solo player, I would hop from character to character; alternating between playing light side and dark side, depending on my mood. Since joining the Mandalorians, I have played almost exclusively with my BH and operative healer because those are the characters in the guild. They recently made a sister light side guild for us, but haven’t really done anything with it yet, so more often then not I will be alone when playing my trooper. As a result it can get a little lonely. It’s actually amazing how you get used to the chatter in the guild chat.

This past week, I have been trying to get some /played time on a few of my alts and forgot how much I enjoy taking my toons through the class stories. It’s also been nice being more laid back and not having to worry about making conquest as quickly as possible. I still jump onto my BH in the evenings to hang out with the guild; however, going forward I would like to continue playing my alts as a way to relax from the pressure of having to make conquest and just get back to my roots of playing the game for the sake of the stories.

Why I Saved Skadge

*Companion Spoilers*

Back in July of 2019 I tweeted about how much I hated Skadge as a companion and couldn’t wait to be rid of him for good. Even though it was my first play through of the bounty hunter, I knew from my Jedi Knight that I would meet Skadge again in the Alliance Alerts and would have the option to kill him. I was very much looking forward to it because Skadge was really getting on my nerves.

Little did I suspect that the voice actor himself, Neil Kaplan would respond to my tweet and say that if the two of us spent some time together and got to know each other better, things might work out. I admit to being thrilled and a little awed that he would actually take the time to respond to my tweet. We ended up having a back and forth conversation where I declared I wouldn’t change my mind and he said ‘we’ll see’. It was a fun exchange, especially when others became involved and also expressed their dislike for Skadge. He took it all in stride and just tried to convince us to change our minds and give the guy a chance.

It isn’t the last time someone from Bioware has responded to something I said. Shortly after I started the BH story, I posted a screenshot on Reddit of my bounty hunter and Mako and one of the people who helped write the story told us about how Mako was loosely based off their copy editor, who was the happiest ray of sunshine they’d ever met and had a birthmark right where Mako’s cybernetics were and in the same general shape. A lot of us were excited to learn this tidbit and it brought new insight into the creation of Mako.

Knowing that the voice actors, devs, and writers are just as enthusiastic about the game as the rest of us is good to know. I’m glad they are nothing like the people working at DC Universe Online who have a plethora of problems in their game but insist it’s either your computer or your antivirus’ fault and not on their end. Never mind the fact DCUO’s graphics are outdated and their patches work more as a temporary measure rather than fixing the problems.

Even though my BH finished KOTET awhile ago, I kept putting off the Alliance Alert for Skadge because I didn’t forget what Neil Kaplan said and was torn about what to do. On one hand I really wanted to kill Skadge since he’s still an annoying twerp, but at the same time I felt that I should spare him because the voice actor took the time trying to convince me not to. Eventually, I began the quest and made a last minute decision to recruit him, gaining two companions in the process and I have Neil Kaplan to thank for that.

If he hadn’t replied to my tweet, I probably wouldn’t have hesitated to get rid of Skadge for good. So thank you Neil Kaplan for being energetic about your character even if he is the most unlikable person in the galaxy. Your good humor in spite of all the flak your character gets is a true inspiration.

Is Pugging Flashpoints Newbie Friendly?

As stated in the title I’m going to talk about pugging flahpoints from a new(ish) player’s’ perspective. I’ve been playing this game since October 2016 and have ran all the fps that are solo-able either by myself or with my brother and sister. For the most part I have avoided doing group content and so there are a number of fps that I’ve never experienced because you need a group of at least four players or three players and a high level (preferably 50) companion.

In real life I am very shy and reserved and like most introverts I hate stepping out of my comfort zone. There are two types of introverts. Those who have trouble with communicating and interacting with others in real life, but have no trouble finding their courage via online games to the point many wouldn’t suspect they are normally shy. And then there is the introvert who is shy not only IRL, but also in games. They are the lurkers who stand in a crowd and say nothing. They may also be uncomfortable with trying out new things and would prefer to hang with those they are comfortable with over strangers. I fall squarely into the second category for introverts.

When I first joined the Mandalorians guild there were probably a few members wondering who in the world I was because all I did was lurk in the background. Any time there was an event, I would be right there watching them, not saying anything. As I became more comfortable with the idea of being part of a guild, I began to interact with them more. They now know who I am on discord where I talk to guild members the most and every now and then I say something in guild chat, though I rarely communicate that way. It took me two months to start talking to everyone in the guild and more recently to participate in their weekly pvp tourney (more on that in a later post).

With that being said, the guild has been helping me step out of my comfort zone and has made me want to try out new things…mainly the group content that I’ve been missing out on all these years. So last month, I queued up for my first flashpoint and got the Czerka Core Meltdown. Before we started, I told the others in the group up front that I had never done this flashpoint before and asked what we were supposed to do. One person, oh so helpfully said we kill all the bad guys and the tank in the group said that he would be in charge of yanking the boss around the room.

So I hung back and tried to follow their example. Everything was alright until we came to the first boss fight and wiped on the first try. I asked what strategy we were going to use to fight it the second time around and the tank told me that he would be yanking the boss around the room and the rest of us needed to deal damage. We tried that and wiped again…and then again…and then again. The tank became so frustrated with us that he quit abruptly and then next thing I knew the other two in the group also quit.

I thought about quitting myself, but I was really curious to see how the flashpoint played out so I queued for more people. Luckily, the next tank was a lot nicer and not only explained to me why the tank needed to yank the boss around the room, but also helpfully suggested what I should do. This time around was much easier and after watching the tank in action I realized he was ten times better than the other tank, who would yank the boss around the room once and then stood there and tried to kill the boss and then yelled at us because we were all killed by the sand storm. This tank kept yanking him around the room to prevent the sand storm from killing us and let the rest of us heal and deal damage while keeping the boss’s focus on him.

At the end of the flashpoint, I thanked him for his help, but by the time we were done I was so nervous and rattled that I didn’t queue for another fps as I had intended because I had gone above and beyond my level of comfort and I was a little miffed at the first tank for getting frustrated with his group even though it was clearly his fault we kept wiping out.

It took a couple weeks before I worked up the courage to try queuing for another flashpoint. This time I landed in the The Foundry and inwardly cheered because I’ve done this one before in both story and veteran mode so I knew what to do and how to skip all the trash. I figured this time around I wouldn’t feel like a complete idiot because I didn’t know what to expect. It didn’t quite go the way I thought it would.

One guy kept pulling trash even though the tank in the group was trying to skip them. Naturally, he became overwhelmed and died before I could turn back around and help him. Then we reached the HK fight. I was running around hitting the kolto stations whenever everyone’s health dropped low since we didn’t have a healer in the group and fighting the droids that HK would call for reinforcements. Apparently, the tank didn’t like me doing that and called me a moron, saying I needed to focus on HK and we would deal with the other droids once the fight was over.

As I said, I have played The Foundry in veteran before with my guild mates and knew how much damage the droids can cause if they are ignored. The last time I played this fp, my guild mates and I wiped the first time around because most of us solely focused on HK and the droids overwhelmed us. We had to kill the droids first and then deal with HK. I tried to explain that and while the tank was in the middle of yelling at me, we wiped. The tank called me a moron again and a few other colorful phrases and then told me to listen to him this time.

I didn’t appreciate his attitude, so when we started fight HK again I didn’t touch the kolto stations and focused on healing myself with the few heals I have. I will admit it was very satisfying to watch the tank die almost immediately and even though the entire group wiped out again, it was worth it. Needless to say, I never finished the flashpoint because everyone rage quit.

The third time I queued for a fps was probably by far the worst experience out of them. I don’t remember which flashpoint it was since I was never able to finish. After I told the group I’d never done that flashpoint before I was vote kicked out. Since I was geared up properly for a vet mode fps, I can only assume they kicked me out because they didn’t want to deal with someone who didn’t know what they were doing. I haven’t been able to bring myself to queue up for another flashpoint since then.

So, to answer my question is pugging flashpoints newbie friendly? I have found the answer to be overwhelmingly no. I don’t know if it’s this particular server; if I’m queuing up at the wrong times; or there are a lot of very rude people playing SWTOR these days. What ever the case may be, I think I’m done pairing up with random people to do flashpoints with for now. Perhaps if I was more confident and knew how to do all the fps, I would be tolerant of all the rudeness, but that last one where I was kicked out has me rethinking trying out more group content.

Which is why I have been toying with the idea of asking my guild to either start a weekly fps run or ask my guild mates to run fps with me in chat. It is very hard for someone like me to step out of my comfort zone and especially hard when most of my experiences have been negative. I don’t want to give up on flashpoints, uprisings, and warzones and would like continue experiencing them all, but until I’m more comfortable with the content and know what to expect, grouping up with rude strangers is out of the question.

I can only hope I’m in the minority and other newbie players aren’t dealing with the same problems I had.

Conqueror Of Rishi

My guild usually goes for large yield planets and we’re almost always in fourth or fifth place every week. We’re a casual guild so we’ve never really tried to make the number one spot. The very first time we won a planet was almost by accident. A few weeks ago there was a time when dozens of planets were up for grabs and there were five large yield planets to choose from and a lot of the other large guilds had spread out between four of the planets, so we chose Taris. There were only three other guilds vying for Taris and we won by a large margin of points without even trying.

Last week, we briefly switched to medium yield because Leadership decided they wanted to try conquering Rishi since our guild stronghold is there. The first three days we trailed behind The Courageous by a lot until our Guild leader sent a letter encouraging everyone to help participate in conquering Rishi and even offered prizes to the top five who racked up the most points. That brought out a lot of team spirit and the guild enthusiastically began closing the cap between us and The Courageous until we overtook them and went on to win by a large majority and won the title, Conqueror of Rishi. Sadly, our victory will be short lived since Rishi is on the conquest planets list again this week, but it’s nice having our name associated with the planet while it lasts.

This week we have shifted our focus back to large yield and are trying to conquer Dantooine. The Guild leader again sent out a letter of encouragement, saying last week was a lot of fun and we should try to keep the momentum going. So far we are in second place behind The Sanctuary, which is a hardcore conquest guild. Usually, The Sanctuary wins their planets without too much competition, so I imagine they’re sweating, trying to stay in first place. Every time they manage to pull ahead by 20 million points, we quickly close the gap. I have no idea if we’ll be able to beat The Sanctuary. We’ve never been a hardcore conquest yield guild before so we’re not nearly as organized as they are, but we still have until Tuesday to attempt to overtake them. Even if we don’t win, it’s been fun trying to and our guild team spirit is higher than it’s ever been.

To Enter Spy Games, Make A U-Turn

*Spoilers for Inflection Point*

I’ve taken two characters through Jedi Under Siege, a Sith and Jedi respectively. When the time came to choose, both of them stuck to their designated factions so everything was pretty straight forward. Since I’ve been playing my bounty hunter as someone with a morally ambiguous conscience, I had her side with the Republic when Lana Baniko asked who she would support.

My BH is by no means loyal to the Republic now. She was never very loyal to the Empire either; preferring to do things her way and let her slightly skewed conscience dictate her actions. At this moment in time, she has sided with the Republic because she gets a bad feeling every time she’s around Empress Acina and knows that woman is going to do something terrible if she’s allowed too much power. The Republic is a means to an end to ensure that the Sith don’t gain a foothold in the galaxy again because above all else, my BH hates Force users with a passion. She thinks most of them cause nothing but trouble. Only Lana Baniko and a few others have gained her trust and respect.

After choosing to side with the Republic, the next step was going to Nar Shaddaa to talk to Jonas Balkar where he informed the BH that she would be working undercover to undermine the Empire, while pretending to remain loyal.

I found this intriguing since both my Jedi and Sith never had to play spy games after rejoining their faction (for obvious reasons). It’s going to be weird watching my BH act as a spy for the Republic, considering how she’s blunt and not very good at subterfuge. It will be interesting to see how this play’s out once I make it to Ossus and how this new development will further my BH’s story.

I imagine it will be similar to what my Sith did during Jedi Under Siege except with a few subtle differences since the BH is supposed to be a spy now. Maybe when nobodies looking she’ll do a few things to sabotage the mission in favor of the Republic. Either way, it’s kind of cool that Bioware allows you to work against your faction now. I always thought it was odd that they gave you the option to defect in all the class stories, but the very next mission put you right back where you started as if you never defected. It certainly took them awhile.

Blog Name Change

Just letting everyone know that I’ve gone ahead and changed the name of my blog like I talked about here. I was thinking about calling it The Bounty Monitor, but Shintar pointed out someday I may want to change my focus from that of a bounty hunter. While I can’t see myself ever abandoning my BH as my main, she did raise a good point.

The truth is I like the dark side stories in SWTOR better. I know I’m weird that way. I’ve always liked villains in movies and TV shows. It doesn’t take much skill for an actor to be a hero. All heroes are the same and when you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Villains on the other hand take great skill to get just right. If they come across as too cheesy than you can’t take them seriously, but those that inspire awe and fear are the great ones. Some examples of my favorite villains are Scorpius from Farscape, Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars, Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon A time, and Sauron from Lord of the Rings. If it weren’t for the villains there would be no need for heroes to rise up and defeat them.

With that being said, I do enjoy the light side class stories and I have two light side alts in particular that I play often along side my BH and there will be times when I want to talk about my Jedi Knight and Trooper, so after thinking about it, I’ve decided to rename my blog, The Old Republic Era. It’s simple, to the point, and doesn’t cater to either light or dark side. Instead it embraces the game as a whole.

Hopefully, the name change doesn’t inconvenience anyone too much and as promised before I won’t be changing the name of this blog again unless I get slapped with a copyright. I did look it up and couldn’t find anything about the name of the Old Republic era being copyrighted.
