Notes on the patch and sniff the end of Beta – SWTOR

by Bartender on December 3, 2011

Hey gang. The server is down for maintenance… so goes the thoughts for playing most of the morning. I have a party to go to later this afternoon and then I’ll probably get stuck in the que.

Nevertheless we’ll get to play some tomorrow anyway.

Some thoughts on the patch –

1. The intro / starter planet got a buff to the experience.
2. PVP gear – level 20 and 40. Some nice gear. Not too expensive. The vendors are located near the other vendors. There are different vendors for different types of ¬†armor. Off hand I forget the names, but don’t worry because you’ll be able to find a gear vendor for your armor.
3. Otherwise the game seems to be about the same… so far. I did try space combat and got creamed. Or I should say the ship I was escorting didn’t make it. I’m not sure if I was just being a noob when I ran it, or if they made it more difficult. We’ll just have to wait and see.
4. Money seems to be about the same as before. Over the next weeks I’ll be writing some guides for making money and leveling quickly.

The beta ends –

The beta for everyone will be ending on Sunday night at midnight. I am sad and happy at the same time. Sad because I won’t get to play for at least eleven days. I’m happy because it is coming time when I can level up toons that I get to keep – for more than a day, week, month etc. I love the game, but I think going thru the intro would be a huge pain. I think all told I’ve had a level 50, couple of 40s and about 8 or so to level 25. And then the guy I’m working on and hopefully will be level 25 before we quit.

I need to finish up and get ready to bash again.
