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…

Gunslinger Builds: Dirty Fighting

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…

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.

The name’s Degana. Deg’eldari’oned Degana

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.
