Greetings fellow nerds and gamers. First let me apologize for taking so long to write since the last post. It has been a whirlwind super busy end to the summer, but I am finally back in my blogger’s chair. Much has happened since my last post and I am not sure even where to begin.
I am still enjoying SWTOR especially with the recent release of 12 times the amount of experience earned from class mission quests. With the creation of a guild over at the #badfeelingpodcast on the Jung Ma server I figured, “What the heck? Why Not?” so I rolled a Bounty Hunter on the Jung Ma server and have been having a good time getting it leveled up. I had leveled to about level 34 or so when the XP bonus hit, so from there I took off. I was able to gain about six levels/evening over three nights this week and yesterday I finished off to level 55.
One of the things I noticed is that SWTOR knocked out the cost for training new skills which really helped a lot. Where I really hit a problem was when I hit about level 47. I hat so out leveled my gear that I was unable to finish the quests because I just didn’t have the firepower needed to get the quest done. Doing just the class quests didn’t drop the greens to upgrade gear and the money payout was not enough to upgrade either. But thanks to a great guildie who hooked me up with some gear modifications I was able to move forward. I also found that dropping my healing spec for a full DPS spec helped out a great deal as well. Today I rolled new alts for each of the other classes as I have not finished the storyline in either the Sith Warrior or Inquisitor story lines. I hope to be able to level up both before 12X XP goes away.
Finally, I am feeling a little bit of pressure to get back to World of Warcraft. My old guild recently held a meeting and Nosit is trying to get us organized to do some raiding when the expansion hits. However, I will let him tell you about it when he writes his first post for our joint blog here.
