SWTOR Easter Egg? The secret of kolto…

July 26, 2014 Leave a comment

Recently, I saw a screenshot from the new Manaan content in the SWTOR patch coming up (thanks to Baffle on Twitter).

Now, chemist that I am, I noticed some interesting items. Namely, that the Aurabesh letters for N, O, and CH3 are present all over the place. Then I recognized the shape.

kolto is caffeine

It’s caffeine. Nicely done, SWTOR. All nerds thrive on kolto apparently.

Guide to Wildstar’s Housing

Normally I write things about Wildstar for Wildstar Radio, but I feel this blog has been neglected. So, while I write PvP articles for them, I’ll write guides here for other things.

Wildstar’s housing system is the best housing system I have ever seen. It is not only deep and varied in what it can do, but it was literally built into the game from the ground up. Everything in the game relates to housing in some way or another; it is not an afterthought.

Wildstar’s housing basically consists of a plot of land floating in the sky. It is instanced, which at first seems closed off, but it really isn’t. There is an in-depth neighboring system that allows you to visit friends on their housing plot and have visitors to yours! Because of the instancing, there can be a much higher decor limit, allowing players to get really creative with their decor.

This guide will cover how to get a house, how to customize it, how to use the Housing UI, how to tweak your decor just right, how to deal with the neighbors, and what addons are useful to a housing aficionado. There’s a table of contents with links after the jump.

Making Credits Fast in SWTOR

Well, today is Tax Day in the United States, so I figured what better way is there to celebrate the government taking our money than to tell everyone on the internet how I make money in SWTOR. Now that I don’t play SWTOR anymore hardcore (even though I am tempted to go back for Season 2 Ranked PvP), I feel like it is safe to risk killing the market that I used to use to make money in SWTOR. People may hate me for this. Some of you, those of you who aren’t in the know, will love me.

I will say that I am not the first to figure this method out, nor am I the only one using it. It is a very popular method of making money in any game. You see, I don’t sell crafted items, and I don’t sell gathered materials. I sell intermediate materials. Read more…

Well, season 1 is coming to a close soon (April 8th), and when it does, it will grant rewards to tiers of players on the leaderboards! I want to look back at the season and talk about what is good and bad about it, no holds barred. Here we go! Read more…

A Study In Bioware

February 3, 2014 2 comments

Yes, yes, I wrote a deep post last week. This week, I am going back to light and fluffy. I thought I would let y’all know what I have been playing!

Believe it or not, I haven’t played much SWTOR recently. I have been slowly easing myself out. I am eagerly looking forward to Wildstar’s arrival, and I have been doing a lot of Beta testing as a part of the Wildstar Radio crew. I am fully aware of the many ways Wildstar will be innovating in the PvP areas of MMO gaming, while SWTOR is staggeringly bad at anticipating the needs of PvPers. But that is a rant for another time. Let’s talk about what I have been doing, shall we? Read more…
