Yeah, so apparently between all the Guild Wars 2 gaming I got pulled into Star Wars: The Old Republic again. “Hey, I want to play that again, how about you join?” and off we went.
First it was off to a fresh start on T3-M4 (the German non-PvP server) but seeing how the Legacy stuff IS kinda important/nice to have/handy and I messed up and bought my Chiss unlock on Jar’Kai Sword by accident… We started again on Jar’Kai Sword – Sith side.
News is that the 3 German servers will be merged in November anyway. Which is pretty awesome and sorely needed, Jar’Kai Sword has <10 people online in the Fleet, on a Sunday evening. On levelling planets it’s usually 2-5. I have no idea how the 3rd German server fares, but T3-M4 seems healthy enough. Apparently also the EU (English) servers will be merged to one and so will the French ones.
So, I’m playing a Male Chiss Sith Juggernaut now and it’s quite fun. (Subscribed for a month because why not, already got my money’s worth I think). Levelling is super fast and so far we’ve done Korriban / Dromund Kaas (complete) + Balmorra (Class Story only), then Nar Shaddaa (complete) and now off to… whatever, probably Tatooine, then Alderaan.
Most lovely feature so far: Can save keybinds on one character and load on others. (Looking at you WoW, this needs an addon).
Intermission: Apparently this layout style with images left and right only really works if you produce massive amounts of texts, as I just spent nearly as much time trying to fiddle with spaces, paragraphs, and the images as writing everything else. So I need a filler paragraph with more text, thus this rant about HTML layouts 😛
I’ve also looked into Strongholds and dusted off my other characters, here’s a rundown, but not sure if I’ll keep all of them. (I also seem to have at least one 65 boost…)
- 55 Mirialan Jedi Sage (old main)
- 38 Chiss Sith Juggernaut (the new one)
- 26 Cyborg Powertech (now 30)
- 12 Twi’lek Scoundrel (now 17)
- 15 Cyborg Operative (might be deleted, might be kept)
- 15 Sith Pureblood Sith Juggernaut (might remake as Marauder or Assassin)
- 11 Rattataki Sniper (probably keeping)
- 1 Zabrak Trooper (never logged in, but always wanted to try Trooper)
