Welcome Back Star Wars The Old Republic!

You can probably tell by the title of my post that I’ve started playing Star Wars The Old Republic once more. To be honest, I never really left. I took a little break and then resubscribed again, and I’ve been playing off and on since then. But I’ve started to really get back into the trading side of the game once more, and I would like to start up the Armour posts I used to do way back when I was mildly obsessed with collecting armour sets (which apparently is still very much a thing).

To celebrate my return to the game, I managed to get hold of this beautiful armour set which is one of the nicest ones I’ve seen in a long time – The Darth Malgus Reborn set. It also looks just as good on the female character models as the male which is a huge bonus:

I also have the original set, but this one comes with a full faceplate and the rebreather which I am wearing in this image.

One thing I did notice that kind of saddened me a little is that quite a few of the sites I used to frequent for armour-related updates and Cartel Market item information have basically ceased to exist. I used to frequent Dulfy dot net because she was one of the only people that played SWTOR that was 100 per cent up to date with all the Cartel Market items. Nobody knows where she went, she just stopped posting updates some time ago. And the other site I used to frequent which was TOR fashion is also pretty much non-existent. I guess the owners had more important things to do in life (quite understandable) and/or just lost interest (again very reasonable).

I don’t really know the state of the game at all and I haven’t done any research into it either. All I know is that quite a few of the mainstays of the community have stopped participating. Perhaps a sign of the times? I don’t know, but I’m going to keep chugging along and updating when time allows. I don’t want to adhere to a schedule because I don’t know how much time I can commit to playing. But I’m happy for now.

Sith Weekly Magazine – Mockup

I blogged about this in my last post, so if you’ve been keeping up with my posts recently, you’ll know that I have returned to SWTOR and I’m now trying to blend creativity with some aspects of SWTOR gaming. I used to blog about fashion inside the universe of SWTOR so it would be good to get back to that maybe a weekly post discussing current armour set releases and cartel market updates.

I was fooling around in Photoshop earlier, and somehow I ended up with this 😂SITH.png

I dunno about you but I think it looks Okay – I’d definitely pick up a magazine if it were all about Sith life and fashion what 😂🤣 so do you think about it? Good, bad, silly, all of the above? Feel free to comment friends. I am just wondering if I should post this on social media … 😂🤣

My return to SWTOR and my new mantra

So part of this blog post is a big deal for me because I used to be an avid SWTOR (Star Wars the Old Republic) gamer having played the game on and off for years. After all my friends left the game, I stayed on and became a trader with more than 5 billion credits in the bank. One part of SWTOR I loved next to trading was fashion. The clothing designed in SWTOR is actually pretty awesome (well, most of it) and I became somewhat fixated on the different armour sets released in the game. I started to become a collector and found that I had hundreds of armour sets stored away. So I tried to highlight some of these armour sets and talked about how they looked and even rated them.

Back to SWTOR – Vaylin Motion Art

SWTOR GIF 02

I’ve taken a teeny tiny little break from playing SWTOR so I can create all of this fun motion art and I think it’s really paid off! Now, I am going to try and focus any motion art I do for the next few days on SWTOR. I’m also hoping to continue my trading and armour comparisons very soon. I had real fun with the animation above, adding the blue orbs to Vaylin’s hands really makes the animation “pop”. What do you think?

 

When Star Wars and Plotagraphs collide!

 

 If you’re reading the title of my post and scratching your head a little, don’t worry, you are not alone. Continuing on from my previous post about creativity and getting back in touch with my “artistic” side, I’ve recently (well, yesterday to be precise) discovered the art form of Plotagraphs. So a plotagraph is where you take a still image and basically animate it. It is not the same as a gif file because a gif file is comprised of several frames to make the gif whereas plotagraphs are created solely by using software to create the animation effect on a single still image.

Two SWTOR Milestones this week!

THIRD BILLIONAIRE IN SWTOR

Just a quick post about two milestones I reached this week. The first is I managed to make my third billionaire character yesterday. When you take into account I trade with 12 different toons on this server and my credits are spread across all 12 of these characters, it’s nice to know that the time I put in is paying off somehow, even if it’s not real money!

What’s the deal with Silver and Bronze Armour Sets in SWTOR?

SWTOR Blog Banner

I’ve always wanted to know why some sets in SWTOR are exactly the same set in a different tier. For instance, you can get a set that is supposed to be Bronze but the exact same set is also in the Silver tier. Here’s an example of what I mean – I took some in-game screenshots using the Classic Contractor armour set as an example: Continue reading → What’s the deal with Silver and Bronze Armour Sets in SWTOR?
