Star Wars “Who Am I?” – Darth Marr

DARTH MARR STAR WARS PROFILE 05

Reading about all of these Star Wars characters really makes me think of other possibilities, especially for the future of the franchise. Darth Marr was one of my favourite NPCs in Star Wars the Old Republic and I really wanted for him to become a playable companion (which never happened). The first thing I noticed about Darth Marr was his armour which makes him look extremely formidable and rightly so. Darth Marr was extremely strong in the dark side of the force, strong enough that he became a force ghost and spent time in exile with Satele Shan. Darth Marr is also famous for never showing his face and no one has ever seen him unmasked (as far as Wookiepedia is concerned, anyway).

Cartel Market Update – Tythian Disciple Armour set

SWTOR Blog Banner

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. Continue reading → Cartel Market Update – Tythian Disciple Armour set

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.

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. Continue reading → Cartel Market Update 20/03/2018

Star Wars “Who Am I?” – Bastila Shan

SWTOR ARMOUR GIVEAWAY _ STAR WARS PROFILE

One thing I’ve learned about Star Wars is that there are so many different characters, especially if you include the expanded universe (which includes games, comics, books, tv shows etc). So for kicks, I thought I’d do profiles on some of the perhaps lesser known star wars characters that fans may not have heard of. Like many Star Wars fans, I became a fan after watching the (original trilogy) films and never really focused on the expanded universe until much later on. Nowadays, there is no escaping the EU as it’s pretty much everywhere and with the new Sequel Trilogy movie releases, Star Wars is even more popular than it was, reaching much bigger (and younger) audiences.

Bronze Armour Set of the Week – “Reveler”

SWTOR Blog Banner

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!!

SWTOR Blog Banner

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.
