Attacks, Damage, Buffs, and Debuffs in SWTOR

December 29, 2014 4 comments

UPDATED: 12/29/14 for Update 3.0.1

With Update 3.0 came a lot of combat changes, and I have been wanting to write a post on Attack Types and Damage Types for about 3 years now (I know, lazy). Here are some of the most recent changes, along with the Attack and Damage Types for reference, so people can more effectively create Ops groups and Ranked PvP teams.

Enjoy! 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.

Update 2.0 Leveling Gear Guide

Welcome to the Update 2.0 Leveling Gear Guide! This guide is compiled from a combination of my experience leveling a brand new character on a brand new server without the aid of my crafters and the knowledge of the systems in place.

This guide is not an endgame gearing guide. Once you hit level 55, you are on your own. This is a guide about getting the maximum use out of your planetary commendations while leveling. First off, let’s talk about what planetary commendations are. Read more…

LAST UPDATED: 2.0.0

Welcome to the Gunslinger Builds Guide. This guide is focused on the Dirty Fighting tree, and contains all Dirty Fighting builds I have used or will at some point use. This means that the other build guides on my site for the Dirty Fighting tree may not be kept up-to-date, but this one will always be kept current. Also be sure to check out the other guides on the other two trees, Sharpshooter and Saboteur!

This build guide will be in three parts. The first part is a brief description of the tree and its uses. The second part is what I consider to be “core” talents in the tree, i.e. talents I would never go without. The third part contains all of the variations that I use, have tried, or have thought about trying. Read more…
