A Study In Bioware

February 3, 2014 2 comments

Yes, yes, I wrote a deep post last week. This week, I am going back to light and fluffy. I thought I would let y’all know what I have been playing!

Believe it or not, I haven’t played much SWTOR recently. I have been slowly easing myself out. I am eagerly looking forward to Wildstar’s arrival, and I have been doing a lot of Beta testing as a part of the Wildstar Radio crew. I am fully aware of the many ways Wildstar will be innovating in the PvP areas of MMO gaming, while SWTOR is staggeringly bad at anticipating the needs of PvPers. But that is a rant for another time. Let’s talk about what I have been doing, shall we? Read more…

Give me back my DPS back or I will have Tanno Vikk fill my Bt-7 Thunderclap to the brim with Baradium, strap Treek to pilot’s seat and and crash it to my subscription plan with such vigour that one time Sith gatecrashed into Jedi Temple at Coruscant with a transport ship will look like a gentle knock on the door.

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.

Chipchops’ Photojournal…The First Six Months or So

June 26, 2012 Comments off

In response to Geldarion posting a photojournal, decided to set out to do one as well, considering how I have not posted much since beta. As real life and the balancing of the joys of SWTOR go, I have been quite busy. Also, it may not show the progression I would have liked due having played on 3 computers, one awaiting respawn…but here is quite a spread nonetheless. Hope you enjoy most of my first 6 months of SWTOR as seen here. Read more…

PvP Talent Build: Shield Tech/Advanced Prototype Hybrid Powertech – 25/14/2

June 9, 2012 3 comments

LAST UDPATE: Update 1.2.6

This is a PvP build for the Powertech. It is a hybrid between the Shield Tech and Advanced Prototype specialization trees.

Note: This build was created with the Darth Hater Talent Calculator. The link to view this build is here. The associated Vanguard build is here.

Class: Powertech
Primary Focus: Shield Tech
Secondary Focus: Advanced Prototype
Purpose: PvP
Goal: This build is about movement, interrupts, damage mitigation, and our favorite: Rocket Punch. This build incorporates Jet Charge, while taking both damage mitigation talents for a total of 9% damage mitigation while Ion Gas Cylinder is active. This build uses some shield-activated talents, but does not stack shield-chance itself, due to only being able to shield half of the damage types. Rocket Punch is buffed with a proc-based cooldown-reset, a boost to crit chance and damage, and a boost to direct damage.

Easily one of the coolest armor looks in the game

All points allocated are the maximum allowed for each ability, unless otherwise noted.
