SWTOR Update – February 20th Legacy of the Sith Has Launched!

Happy weekend fellow Star Wars friends, and welcome to another SWTOR update! I’ve done very little writing this weekend because I’ve been spending all my free time inside SWTOR after the launch of Legacy of the Sith on Wednesday. While I haven’t been able to access any new content yet, the new Cartel Market packs were released (finally!), so I’ve been busy trading.

No new armour this time around (kinda odd), but we did get quite a few new items, one new lightsaber, which is really nice and this little thing 🥰😍

Where’s Grogu?

This new item is only 240 cartel coins, and it doesn’t have Grogu in it but still – IT’S so adorable. I know there will be people in the game who will love this as much as I do. Therefore, I am sure it will sell for millions 😊🤑🤑

I’ve also come up against some pretty solid competition on the GTN in terms of other traders. I’ve managed to identify a couple of new names, but I know some older nametags from years back. And they’re STILL trading like I am, lol. I wonder if they think the same thing about me hehe 😎🤨 Flipping items on the GTN has never been so much fun (and challenging). I am trying a new strategy to see if it works. I’ll let you know how I get on.

Just a short update today. Thanks for reading; keep safe, and I’ll catch you in the next post!

SWTOR Update – 12 February 2022 Legacy of the Sith

Hello there, fellow Star Wars fans! Another SWTOR Update for February 12th (feel free to tune on out if you’re not into SWTOR) 👍😊

One crucial thing to talk about today is the big SWTOR story update coming next week (February 15th) called “The Legacy of the Sith”. As you can tell by the title, it’s probably going to be a dark path our characters need to follow. Most likely focusing on the sith and their expansion further into the galaxy. I’m all for this, of course, seeing the majority of my characters in SWTOR are all Darksiders (hehe) 😉😊

 

But I am a long way from updating my story to the latest expansion. You see, I became very disillusioned with the game several times over the 10 or so years of playing it. And that meant that I stopped playing for long periods as I played other games. I am sure most people that play video games can relate to this. You play a game for so long, and eventually, people leave, friends stop playing, guilds disband, you know the drill. It became too much of a chore to keep playing independently, so I stopped. My partner also stopped playing, which was a big blow because we played together all the time. So I eventually left SWTOR (several times), and that meant falling behind in the expansions.

So while I might not be able to play Legacy of the Sith straightaway, I am looking forward to the new gear and new packs they will most likely release the same day. As trading is my number one thing (next to working towards Legendary status), I am pretty excited about it. I have no idea what they’ll release, but given the latest shows, including Boba Fett, I expect some look-alike armour there, maybe even Luke’s or Fennecs.

Trading update

Today I made a collector or trader very happy by selling two pieces of rare armour I’ve had forever. I did a bit of tidying up today while I traded. It was the fastest sale I think I’ve ever had for two pieces of armour, both selling for the maximum price of 1 BILLION credits each. They’re most likely wealthy and armour collectors like me who bought them. Nobody would purchase those pieces unless they knew exactly how rare they were. So I made a nice collection of credits today, working towards my target of whatever the maximum is. I am trying to figure out just what the legacy limit is for credits by collecting credits, lol 😅

Thanks for reading; keep safe, and I’ll catch you in the next post!

SWTOR Update – 31 January 2022

Hello there, fellow Star Wars fans! Another SWTOR Update 31 January (feel free to tune on out if you’re not into SWTOR) 👍😊

So what has happened since my previous update? Well, quite a lot, actually! In my earlier post, I mentioned working towards Legendary status in the game, which involves completing all eight class missions. It’s a pretty big deal to do this (in my opinion) because it shows that you have mastered the basics of the game well enough to finish eight different playthroughs. I DO consider it a big deal because I’ve wanted this particular achievement ever since I can remember (a long time). And I am happy to say that I am still chipping away at all three storylines, with the Jedi Knight story very close to completion! 🥳🤩

I am also working on the others, and I am at or very close to the second chapter for the Smuggler storyline and the Trooper storyline. There are three chapters to each storyline, so about halfway. I am pretty happy about it because I’ve been so lazy in the past and promised myself I’d do it (and never did). Now, I am focused enough to do it – with no more “but’s…”

VIA GIPHY

On the trading side of things, the game has all but halted to a complete stand-still for me. Without products to sell on the GTN, there is no way to make any credits within the game. I have never struggled this hard before. So I blame this entire thing on a) having too many nice things to sell and not selling them (totally me). And b) not having any new Cartel Market packs to buy because, for some reason, Bioware hasn’t released any in almost two months! Now it is getting very close to the launch of the new update (7.0). So I guess they’re not going to release anything new until then. HOWEVER – if they do, they might include the Dark Sabre in the new packs! And I am hoping so hard they do! 😍😍😍😅

I also thought I’d make a semi-regular TRADING only post a couple times a month. I’d like to discuss selling, trading and making credits in SWTOR.

SWTOR B400 Cybernetic Armour Set: Bronze Armour Set of the Week

Welcome back, SWTOR friends! I’ve decided to revisit these armour posts again because they were enjoyable to do! So back in 2018 (a long time, I know, lol), I regularly posted about armour in SWTOR. It was dear to my heart, and I continue to trade in armour to this day. In fact, next to weapons, armour is one of the most traded commodities in SWTOR.

Which kinda makes sense when you think about it. Most games have their own unique way of selling and trading different commodities. And I’ve played a lot of games in my time (particularly during my MMO phase), so I have oodles of experience trading in different games. The thing is, it’s almost the same in every game – weapons, armour and dyes are the three things that I’ve seen work well in nearly every game I’ve played.

If you can start early enough and get hold of all the rare stuff that will either be phased out later on or are just difficult items to obtain, you can make a lot of cash, credits, platinum, whatever your game uses. That said, I really didn’t start off early, I mean, I started playing the game at launch, but I never did the trading thing straightaway like I have in other games. I’m not sure why it took me a little longer to get on the trading bandwagon, but I eventually did, and here we are!

Now I consider trading in SWTOR the thing I know how to do the best, and I like to blog about it here. So I used to post weekly about different armour I had purchased or focused posts on different armour sets from each tier. I started with Bronze so I’ll keep working on Bronze for now. I’ve made a secondary inventory list of all the armour sets that I have in the game and I’ll be working my way slowly through each list. This week’s set is:

B400 CYBERNETIC ARMOUR SET

IMAGE CREDIT SWTORISTA.COM

  This set is part of a group of cybernetic armour sets. Afaik you can only obtain this armour set from the Cartel Market. This means other players might have it to trade on the GTN. You cannot get this set from quests or any other mission in the game – that is the only problem with Cartel Market sets. You can also randomly obtain this set if you buy Cartel Market packs from the GTN or from the Cartel Market.

I’ve never really liked this series of cybernetic armour. They always looked kinda disjointed to me like pieces didn’t fit with the rest of the set. I’m not sure why I think that, but that’s how it feels when I look at it. I’ve never worn it and I probably never will. But there are players who love these sets so each to their own I guess 👍

The one cool thing about them is that each set is different. And the pieces that join to your limbs look pretty realistic (if cybernetics were an actual thing).

Aesthetics: 5/10

Symmetry: 7/10

Colour: 8/10

Overall: 6/10

Next week I might cover off the latest set on the Cartel Market and rate that one each week as well. I am just deciding as it depends on how much time I get each week but we’ll see.

Let me know if you’ve been playing SWTOR lately or what you think of this armour set or any armour set!

As always stay safe out there, keep on keeping on and I’ll catch you in my next post!

SWTOR Update – State of the Game Jan 13 2022

I have been feeling super-inspired so far this year on the writing front of things. I think Tina’s enthusiasm to blog more has rubbed off on me, so I’m going to ride this wave while it lasts lol 😂🙂I dunno about everyone else, but my blog goes through ups and downs all year long. What happens is that I go through phases of extreme creativity, and then I feel totally unmotivated a week later. There is no point in me making promises to blog daily because I tried that, and it was the fastest way to burn out! I blogged almost every day in 2020, and I don’t think it made much of a change to my viewership or to my traffic.

But one thing I did really want to blog about is how I’ve actually started playing SWTOR again! I’m back on track to finish getting “Legendary” status in the game. So for anyone that doesn’t know, I play SWTOR regularly and have been off and on since it launched. I was one of the first people to subscribe and play the game wayyyy back when it launched in 2011. It recently had its 10th anniversary! So during my holiday period last year, I decided to do more than just trade all day and started playing my Jedi Knight Loungecat.

LOUNGECAT JEDI KNIGHT

The game has changed a lot since I last played it. And there is another huge change coming in the new patch 7.0, which will be released in February of this year. I have started reading up again on gearing for my characters because since I have billions of credits to spend, I might as well start putting them to good use. I intend to upgrade the armour on all the characters I want to play. To gain legendary status in the game, you have to complete all eight character class stories. I am currently on five with three more to go (Jedi Knight, Republic Trooper and Smuggler). I am feeling excited about this game again while I wait for the launch of Elden Ring and (obviously a long way off) the KoTOR remake, and finally, Star Wars Eclipse.

It seems I will be swamped playing video games for the foreseeable future😂and I am pretty happy about that.

So I am hoping to continue making general posts about the game for anyone interested. And I’ll be returning to blogging about the Cartel Market, Trading and Armor, which I did a while back. I am looking forward to doing these things this year! It will give me a reason to keep blogging regularly 😂🙂
