SWTOR Story Ranking – The 1-10 Planets

I didn't know he could joke, actually!

I didn’t know he could joke, actually!

As most people who play Star Wars: The Old Republic know, Bioware considers their Story as their “fourth pillar,” along with Exploration, Combat, and Progression. Because of this lofty goal, they had every storyline fully voice-acted, and they gave each class their own completely fleshed-out stories.

I want to rank each story by its natural divisions. Each story has the Prologue and three Chapters. The Prologue is separated into two different sections (in my mind) of the 1-10 Starter Planets and Coruscant/Dromund Kaas. I will tackle the 1-10 Starter Planets today.

I will give my ranking first, then I will fully explain my position with potential spoilers, so if you just want to see what I think, don’t go past the big spoiler text. Feel free to comment on all of the rankings and provide your own if you want! Be sure to add your reasoning as well! Also stay tuned for more rankings of the additional parts, as well as the ultimate story ranking at the end! Which class will win?

Here is my ranking. They are also links in case you only want to read my analysis of certain classes. Be careful while scrolling!

  1. Trooper – 10/10
  2. Inquisitor – 9/10
  3. Agent – 9/10
  4. Bounty Hunter – 8/10
  5. Smuggler – 8/10
  6. Warrior – 7/10
  7. Knight – 7/10
  8. Consular – 5/10

Deg'eldari'oned Ding

After completing my Sage, that left two advanced classes before I had all 8 stories completed. After completing the Nightmare mode raid I talked about in my last article, I logged on to my Operative (a Chiss named Deg’eldari’oned) to start leveling him, since he was the next on my list.

He started about level 22 and has since been rocketed up to level 50. Let me tell you why I moved so fast on these characters I had been avoiding for so long.

When Is The Patch Again?

November 7, 2012 Comments off

Patch 1.5 has been on the Public Test Server for quite some time now. A recent post from Joveth Gonzales confirmed that we will not see it hit the live servers this week.

In response to:
Joveth Gonzalez has just confirmed via Twitter that there will be “No 1.5 this week. We’re still testing on PTS. This was going to be a normal maintenance for our systems.”

He replied:

Correct. Stay tuned for info on when Game Update 1.5 is coming out. You shouldn’t have to wait too long.

Now the question remains, when will it hit? Today is the six-week mark from the last content update. It isn’t really because I am especially looking forward to this particular patch (though HK-51 is awesome), it is really more of an interest in when Patch 1.6 will come out with Ancient Hypergates. As I have expressed before on Tactical Strike, I have been chomping at the bit to get into Ancient Hypergates. So the faster 1.5 gets here, the faster 1.6 gets here, and the faster I am happy!

So Many Articles, So Little Time

November 1, 2012 Comments off

I bet some people have wondered where all of my articles on SWTOR have been! I have been super busy in real life, so I have been keeping my commitments on TORWars and Corellian Run, but I have not been posting much over here. I meant to start doing a Rant ‘N Rave every week, but I let that go to the wayside, unfortunately. I will pick that back up at some point, or perhaps not be so strict on the once-per-week thing.

Anyway, for now, I would refer you to my recent articles on on my Smuggler Weekly Column and on Corellian Run Radio on my PvP column, Tactical Strike. Read more…

Rant ‘N Rave: SWTOR Class Story Overlap

September 17, 2012 Comments off

This is the inaugural post in a new series I am starting called Rant ‘N Rave. Hopefully, I will give you a new tidbit weekly with rants and raves from my moments in gaming (maybe even in life).

This week is a Rave. I am playing through my Sith Warrior’s story in SWTOR, and I am continually struck by the ingenious storytelling that Bioware has prepared for us. I will attempt to talk generally in the beginning of the post, but spoilers will happen later, so I will warn you ahead of time. The spoilers will be in sets of two: the Sith Warrior/Jedi Knight storylines and the Trooper/Bounty Hunter storylines.
