Valor Ranks Complete List

November 2, 2013 1 comment

Ranked Arena Symbol

It all started a few days ago when Russ Moody (@Manciferous) asked me on Twitter:

I answered about 1000 warzones, but the truth was, I was estimating. I couldn’t know, as there was no complete list of Valor ranks anywhere to be found on the internet!

This will no longer be true. I painstakingly went around the fleets and inspected as many people as it took to find out how many points each rank takes to achieve. Without further ado, here are my findings. Read more…

My week in SWTOR

Imagine our surprise when he respawned with us…

I have been busy in my quest to take over the galaxy through PvP in SWTOR. I wanted to share a few things that happened to me this week.

My name is Geldarion, and I am Altoholic

So…I started a new alt. Two actually. On top of my already 33 Guardian. I have a level 30 Mercenary and a level 7 Inquistor/Future-Sorcerer now as well. If the Guardian and Mercenary make it to 55, then that will be 11 level 55s. I may have a problem. But I’m also really enjoying the Bounty Hunter story again, so I’m ignoring the problem. Read more…

Gunslingers in 2.4

Let me preface this with the statement that I have been writing PvP articles about Update 2.4…they just aren’t on this site. For my PvP articles, head to Corellian Run Radio to read them. I have one that is a general arena overview, one about meta-strategies in arenas, and one on the focus target system, which is applicable to warzones as well as arenas.

So for PvP, I like to give Corellian Run precedence on those articles, since I write a PvP column. But Gunslingers are mine. So here we go!

First off, there were no changes to the Gunslinger class at all. So the basic tenets I set forth in my Gunslinger Advanced Class Guide and the subsequent articles on the Saboteur, Sharpshooter, and Dirty Fighting trees are all still relevant.

But let’s talk arenas. First off, I will describe my experience in arenas overall. Read more…

Recently, Star Wars: The Old Republic announced their new expansion, Galactic Starfighter! Many opinions have arisen on the tiny bits of information we have been given, but one prevalent question is whether the expansion is actually an expansion. Today, I want to tackle this topic, and I want to determine once and for all whether Galactic Starfighter is or is not an expansion. Read more…

The Fast Guide to Getting a Tauntaun in SWTOR

August 12, 2013 7 comments

Tauntaun mounts have arrived to SWTOR!

We’ve all been waiting for animal mounts in SWTOR, and Bioware delivered Tauntauns to us this last update, Update 2.3. I love the way they are able to be obtained too, as it benefits the Subscriber!

In getting my own Tauntaun, I used Dulfy’s guide. I would recommend reading her guide first to understand this post here. In working the nests, I discovered a faster and easier way to do things. Using my method, you can hit 27 nests of 3 taun fawns each in one hour. Since there is about a 20% chance a taun fawn will produce Tauntaun domestication data, of which you need 15 or 20, you will have about 16 at the end of my method, which is enough to buy the Subscriber-only Tauntaun. Hit the jump for the details.
