Rhekk’s Adventures with 2xXP Weekends

Rheymi Aryon, Vanguard.

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.

SWTOR Story Ranking – Chapter One

My commando in front of the Endar Spire on Taris. When I first played Knights of the Old Republic and started on the Endar Spire, I was a soldier, so my SWTOR soldier coming across the Endar Spire was poetic. And then the KOTOR theme music started to play inside the Endar Spire and I got goosebumps...

Just like my previous posts on the Prologue in the 1-10 Starter Planets and the Capital Planets, I want to continue to analyze and rank the stories in SWTOR by its natural divisions. Each story has the Prologue and three Chapters. Today, we will look at Chapter One.

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

Did Bioware Back Themselves Into A Corner?

Conversations

Story is Bioware’s fourth pillar in Star Wars: The Old Republic. They have spent possibly millions of dollars on voice acting alone. Almost every single quest in the entire game is voice-acted, and in fact, they literally hold the world record for voice-over content. What does that mean when it comes to putting out future content? Today I want to talk about the question that burns in all of our minds: did Bioware make a mistake in going fully voice-acted?

I love Massively.com and their podcast Massively Speaking, but I had to reply to their constant negativity on SWTOR. Hit the jump for my response in their comment section. Read more…

Still no Rakghouls…that will change next time…

Last time, I wrote about the stories on the starting planets and how I liked them. This week, I will look at the second half of the Prologue on the capital worlds, Coruscant and Dromund Kaas. Next time, I will talk about Chapter 1!
