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!

SWTOR Update – Two Milestones in One Week!

If you’re interested in my SWTOR escapades (hehe) you can follow them here under the SWTOR tag. I don’t blog about SWTOR as often as I’d like, but any significant updates to the game or to my personal journey will be featured on this blog.

The two milestones I am talking about today relate to trading. As some of you know, I am a big-time trader in the game having made millions from trading items on the GTN. My first milestone was reaching two billion credits on one of my characters which I am proud of doing:

And my second milestone was trading away 549 million credits for ONE item which I’ve been waiting to buy for a really long time. The item is rare because it was released during a specific event in the game and was never re-released. So if you didn’t buy it during that event, you wouldn’t be able to buy it again unless someone traded it on the GTN. And luckily, that’s exactly what happened. I was so happy to see it listed I just spent half a billion straightaway to buy it. Yes, that sounds like a lot of credits to spend on one thing, and it is. But when you’re a collector waiting for rare items to show up, you’ll understand why it’s so important to own it.

Or maybe I’m just obsessive which is very possible also 😂 🤣

What’s Happening in Star Wars The Old Republic?

I’ve blogged about going back to SWTOR before and I’ve actually been playing regularly since then but mostly in the trading area. Since all my friends stopped playing, I am without a guild and spend my time trading on the GTN or slowly chipping away at my legendary player status.

I know there are some followers who liked my posts about SWTOR and I’ve been thinking about ways to ramp up my posts on Instagram and give it a much-needed boost. So I thought I might start posting about armour sets again because it’s really fun.

So this will hopefully be a regular thing and I’m keen to get the ball rolling so here are a few screen captures I took of my main trading character Catzlolz (yes, that really is her name!)

I am a very avid collector of armour sets in this game and I’ve started cataloguing all of the armour sets I have and selling the double-ups. My goal is to get as many of the sets as I can and then move onto either mounts or weapons (I haven’t decided yet).

I wanted to focus a little on what is currently selling in the Cartel Market and how it compares to prices on the GTN. I also really enjoy showing off otherwise overlooked armour sets that actually look pretty gorgeous. Just like this one I just bought for five million credits and it’s a silver set!

I would also like to do landscapes in SWTOR and maybe GIF some of them or turn some of the images into motion art and upload them here. I’ve always thought that one of the most beautiful aspects of this game is the amount of detail that has been created for the different planets and environments.

Anyway, stay safe and keep creating and I’ll catch you in the next post!

Do let me know if you’re still playing SWTOR or you’re interested in playing or ask me about anything you like! I’m keen to hear everyone’s stories.

Trading Tip of the Week / Cartel Market Update

This is going to be a detailed update because I’ve got a lot to chat about regarding the latest sales/trades and Armour updates that have come to the Cartel Market this week. I’ll also be shedding some light on how I trade on the GTN and upselling versus knowing when to sell.

Cartel Market Update – Tythian Disciple Armour set

Another Cartel Market update showing off the Tythian Disciple Armour set for direct sale. It’s priced at 1700 cartel coins which I think is personally quite steep for this set. The image of the set on the Cartel Market makes it look like the head and chest piece both light up when in fact they don’t. The chest piece pulsates slightly but the headpiece is just red/orange coloured metal of some description.
