State of the Game: SWTOR The Forgemaster’s Armour Set

I’ve been playing SWTOR off and on since it released and I’ve blogged about it at various times on this blog when I was going through “gaming” phases. I guess I’m back there again because I really miss blogging about SWTOR armour and the comparison posts I used to do so I’m going to try and do this more regularly. It won’t be a lot of SWTOR but I will sprinkle it into my blogging schedule monthly.

So I wanted to start with this armour set that I am currently wearing called The Forgemaster’s Armour Set:

Made by Darkside Creative

This armour set is based on this armour from The Mandalorian:

It has similarities for sure but overall I think this armour set in SWTOR is very much it’s own set without too much overlapping with The Amorer from The Mandalorian.

Here’s another pic of the back of the amour:

Parts of the amour glow a faint green colour which I really like!

Details

Name: Forgemaster’s Armour Set

Rarity: Gold Armour

Where can it be bought/found? Set found in the Ultimate Cartel Pack on the Cartel Market or on the GTN

Cost in credits: I have sold this set for 300 million credits but it can go for anything between 400 – 150 million credits usually on my server.

ARMOUR SET RATING: 9.5/10

I rate this set an 9.5/10 because it looks really nice, the organic colouring of the armour is also really nice and aesthetically, it looks amazing when you wear it.

Highly recommend buying it if you can get your hands on it!

Thanks for reading today’s State of the Game post and I’ll catch you in the comments or in my next post!

Stay safe out there and keep playing and creating!

SWTOR: Armour Comparison #3 – Juhani’s Armour Set

Recently I posted some info on Juhani, the Cathar Jedi from both Star Wars the Old Republic and KoTOR. It seems my link to this armour is still very much a thing as I discovered today playing one of my alternate characters. This character was originally decked out in Juhani’s armour in bright pink and yellow (which I thought was amusing at the time). I even managed to get hold of the Pink and Yellow lightsaber crystal which completed the ensemble just nicely. But since “skinning” amour became possible in SWTOR, I completely forgot I was still wearing it, after all, this time (I’ve been playing since beta so that’s a good seven years I’ve been wearing the armour).

SWTOR: Armour Comparison #02 Gav Daragon Armour Set

It’s SWTOR Armour Comparison time again where I take a random armour set from the game and compare it to examples taken from other star wars media such as comics, film, books etc. Did the SWTOR creators get it right or did they make a complete mess of an otherwise perfectly good set of armour? Let’s find out…

Bronze Armour Set of the Week – “Ravager”

Judging by the number of forum posts on the official SW: TOR forums regarding RNG and loot drops, I am assuming that the “Bronze” armour loot boxes that plague both cartel market packs and Command pack drops kinda tick people off. At one point, so many people complained about the number of repeated bronze items in Cartel Market packs that BioWare was forced to do something about it and changed the RNG loot drops for CM packs entirely. Sure, you still get a few bronze items in the CM packs to date but the ratio of bronze items to say silver or gold is much more improved than it used to be.
