You can probably tell by the title of my post that I’ve started playing Star Wars The Old Republic once more. To be honest, I never really left. I took a little break and then resubscribed again, and I’ve been playing off and on since then. But I’ve started to really get back into the trading side of the game once more, and I would like to start up the Armour posts I used to do way back when I was mildly obsessed with collecting armour sets (which apparently is still very much a thing).
To celebrate my return to the game, I managed to get hold of this beautiful armour set which is one of the nicest ones I’ve seen in a long time – The Darth Malgus Reborn set. It also looks just as good on the female character models as the male which is a huge bonus:
I also have the original set, but this one comes with a full faceplate and the rebreather which I am wearing in this image.
One thing I did notice that kind of saddened me a little is that quite a few of the sites I used to frequent for armour-related updates and Cartel Market item information have basically ceased to exist. I used to frequent Dulfy dot net because she was one of the only people that played SWTOR that was 100 per cent up to date with all the Cartel Market items. Nobody knows where she went, she just stopped posting updates some time ago. And the other site I used to frequent which was TOR fashion is also pretty much non-existent. I guess the owners had more important things to do in life (quite understandable) and/or just lost interest (again very reasonable).
I don’t really know the state of the game at all and I haven’t done any research into it either. All I know is that quite a few of the mainstays of the community have stopped participating. Perhaps a sign of the times? I don’t know, but I’m going to keep chugging along and updating when time allows. I don’t want to adhere to a schedule because I don’t know how much time I can commit to playing. But I’m happy for now.
