Kathleen Kennedy confirms Old Republic movie will be made!!

GUYS… GUYS THIS IS HUGEEEEE NEWS! For the longest time, I have been waiting for this to happen. As some of you may know, I was a very dedicated SWTOR player and only stopped playing it last year. Well, I’ve actually just resubbed again because this news has really got me so happy! This is like a dream come true – I can’t believe they’re going to finally be making a movie set in the Old Republic timeline!

COULD WE REALLY GET A DARTH REVAN STORYLINE??? OR EVEN DARTH MALGUS OR MALAK?? Or maybe a Satele Shan story about how she became a Jedi Master? There are so many great characters from this timeline… but my biggest hope is that they cast Keanu Reeves as Darth Revan – like, how cool would that be??? What do you think about this news? It’s incredible, right?

Cartel Market update – Sith Cultist Armour Set and Direct Sales

SWTOR Blog Banner

This week is HUGE for SWTOR players in more ways than one. As outlined in the Dev Tracker thread on the SWTOR forums, 5.9 is just around and the corner and the latest update has a brand new pack called the Ultimate Cartel Pack: Continue reading → Cartel Market update – Sith Cultist Armour Set and Direct Sales

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

SWTOR Blog Banner

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).

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).

Star Wars “Who Am I?” – Carth Onasi

STAR WARS PROFILE 04 - CARTH ONASI

Carth Onasi looks like he’d be a bit of a troublemaker (a little like Han Solo) but he was actually very much the opposite. As you can tell by the quote I’ve chosen here, Carth was an extremely dedicated, loyal and courageous soldier that lived during the Old Republic era.
There’s a lot more information on the Star Wars Wiki page which is here. Stay tuned for another armour comparison from SWTOR as I compare in-game armour sets with other versions of the character’s armour taken from various media sources online.

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.
