Star Wars “Who Am I?” – Juhani

JUHANI - STAR WARS PROFILE 03

Star Wars is a melting pot of characters and species from all different parts of the Star Wars Universe. Before playing SWTOR, I had no exposure at all to the Cathar, a cat-like species that you can actually play in the game. Without knowing anything about the Cathar Jedi Juhani, I used to wear her armour proudly (dyed pink and yellow believe it or not) on one of my characters and did so for a couple of years. This was a long time before I started collecting and trading armour in SWTOR and I never really took notice of the “Bronze” “Silver” or “Gold” sets back then. If I remember correctly, Juhani’s set has always been a “Bronze” set but I treasured it for a long time which made the set incredibly valuable to me. As a result of this, the character Juhani has a special place in my personal SWTOR timeline.
I’ll be doing an armour comparison for Juhani soon but for now, I hope you enjoy this character profile.

Cartel Market Update 20/03/2018

The latest update on the Cartel Market has some interesting items for sale. The main one that caught my eye was the White colour crystals. I have quite a few of these stashed away so I’ll definitely be putting these up for sale soonish.

Bronze Armour Set of the Week – “Reveler”

This bronze set is one I’ve never worn because I always thought these sets and similar sets (Magnificent Dancer etc) didn’t really have a purpose to them. Then, of course, I remember the “Slave” girl outfit Carrie Fisher was made to wear in Return of the Jedi while Luke gets dressed in an all-black ensemble and looks kick-ass. That kinda makes me squirm. This set and others like it really do belong in that category – armour sets only men could appreciate because they really make your character look like a hooker. That said, however, there are plenty of women who have since worn the outfit at conventions and in other popular culture who think the Slave costume is empowering. Yep, it says so right here.

Cartel Market Week Ending 18/03/2018 – BLING for your weapon!!

This week’s cartel market updates aren’t all that exciting apart from most of the weapon tunings are on sale for a nice price at 1,620 cartel coins. Now, this might seem expensive to some, but I’m a huge fan of the tunings and I have them on every character I’ve created. The reason for this is because the tunings are just so bad-ass! They really do make your weapon come alive. You don’t want to be playing this game looking like everyone else right? Well, think of the weapon tunings as bling for your weapon – they make it stand out in a crowd. Is your weapon worth it? I say yes, you will not be disappointed.

So much Star Wars goodness!

This week is shaping up to be a nice week for me, especially in the Star Wars arena. Firstly, my star wars work buddy and I ordered our copies of the Junior Novelisation of The Last Jedi and the expanded edition of The Last Jedi both of which should arrive in the next week or so. It’s way behind everyone else in the Northern hemisphere (almost always) but I am so excited to read them both. Secondly, I just pre-ordered the steel book version of The Last Jedi which is the first steel book Blu-Ray I’ve ever ordered. I am definitely coming late to the party but better late than never, right? And lastly, the SWTOR updates that are coming will be amazing and even though they’ve (EA/Bioware) pushed things back by a week for the update, I am definitely excited for what’s to come.
