Rhekk’s Adventures with 2xXP Weekends

Rheymi Aryon, Vanguard.

Well, a lot has happened since Rhekk finished Chapter 3. As a bit of a diversion, I played lots of Skyrim. Where Social Media is concerned, I started tweeting quite a bit (@RhekkAryon), joined the Twitter #SWTORFAMILY, and updated on my playing as much as I could. In addition, I ran through several Double EXP Weekends (or 2xXP as I’ve been referring to them as), and did as much leveling as I could afford to do with a IRL weekend job. I set out to finish Rhekk’s (my Mercenary) leveling to 50, and get both my Vanguard Rheymi and Operative Rhethan to 50. While I did not reach all my goals, I certainly was successful in several ways. Here’s some highlights.

And again, I take lots of screenshots, so there are bound to be SPOILERS. I minimized them, but just know there are some.

So, Rhekk (my character) may not be Level 50, but so far none of my characters thus far (Kaytra – Sorcerer, Rhyla – Scoundrel, and Abhorus – Marauder) were when they finished Act 3 and completed their class story. I’m SUPER EXCITED, and thus far have finished what in my opinion was the most satisfying class story ending yet. For those of you wanting a quick peek at some highlights, just be sure you realize there are SPOILERS INCOMING!

Real life has been busy. Second, I’ve been still finding time to play loads of SWTOR, meaning that I’ve had less time to finish writing and putting it online. So, here’s a quick rundown.

Guys Playing Girl Characters aka “I’m not a creeper…maybe…”

“Uh, hey bro. Sorry I hit on you earlier…”

As I have stated in my previous posts, I’ve run the gamut of World of Warcraft since retail release something of 7 years ago. Originally, yes, as an aspiring roleplayer I chose to create male characters to play as. They were strong paragons of might, rising over time from humble beginnings to powerful masters of their discipline. Well, who says women can’t be strong heroes? (Heroines to you feminists.) Well, no one really. More importantly, why can’t a male play a female character, free of any potential stigma that comes with it?
