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 😅

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 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 😂🙂

SWTOR Update – The Most I’ve Ever Spent on One Armour Set😲😬

It’s been a long while since I’ve updated my blog about Star Wars the Old Republic even though I play almost every day. When I say I play though I mean I log on and I spend time on the GTN and updating my inventory lists when I trade. I’ve been an avid trader off and on in SWTOR for a long time now.

I enjoy trading because it means I don’t really have to interact with anyone. Back in the day when I was a serious PVPer I did the whole thing; I became part of a huge and prominent guild at the time and took my time in the game very seriously. I don’t think I really enjoyed it all that much which is why I guess I turned to trading. It’s a little anti-social but it’s my time and I think it’s important to put time aside for yourself!

Below is a snippet of my armour inventory list showing the Turncoat set as missing:

So yesterday I came across an armour set that I’ve never seen in the game since I started collecting. This was a HUGE deal for me because I’ve had this set on my list for years! To finally see it for sale on the GTN gave me a fright 😂 I wasn’t quite sure what to do. All I knew was that I had to have that set so I quickly went about moving credits on my characters and bought it. It is the most I’ve ever spent in the game costing me SIX BILLION credits.

I was so hyped about seeing the set there that I screwed up royally and accidentally bought two of the same item lol 😂 So now I am trying to make those credits back 🥲

The set that I got is actually quite ugly. And it’s not even a gold or platinum set. It still cost me six billion credits because the people selling the pieces knew that it was rare so they hiked the price right up (which is kind of expected) – I’d probably do the same thing.

This is the set here:

Now it’s back to happy trading on the GTN after that nice little excursion and being able to add a set I’ve needed for a really long time. I know there are other sets I don’t have but most of those sets are not cartel market sets. There are some sets I don’t have because they’re reputation sets you can only get through reputation with a certain faction or planet. Those sets are not really included in my inventory as I primarily focus only on GTN and Cartel Market sets.

Let me know how you’re all getting on – great I hope!
