So, Rhekk (my character) may not be Level 50, but so far none of my characters thus far (Kaytra – Sorcerer, Rhyla – Scoundrel, and Abhorus – Marauder) were when they finished Act 3 and completed their class story. I’m SUPER EXCITED, and thus far have finished what in my opinion was the most satisfying class story ending yet. For those of you wanting a quick peek at some highlights, just be sure you realize there are SPOILERS INCOMING!

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

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.

Sage “Completed”

About a week ago, I finished up my Jedi Sage (my 6th level 50) that I made the first day of pre-launch early access. Almost exactly a year later, but I finally got around to doing it.

At first, the Consular story dragged on Coruscant in the Prologue. I thought that the Consular story would be consistently boring, but apparently, it was just saving the best for later. Every chapter was more interesting, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Up to this point I would’ve ranked the stories like so:

  1. Knight/Warrior
  2. Bounty Hunter
  3. Smuggler
  4. Trooper

Now with the Consular, taking into account all of the story, not just the Prologue (which is by far the worst Prologue of any I have seen), the rankings like this for me: 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.
