[OOC/Screenshots] Space Kids

Things have been really busy this week with some serious family stuff going on, and Mr Hare is home during the day, I have a hard time focusing on writing with other people around. I do have a few ideas saved up, but I have to find time to write them.

So, here’s a couple screenshots of the Space Kids. It’s double XP and double conquest this week. I don’t need XP because they’re all 70, but I’m trying to get everyone through all the story chapters for when the new companions return. They’re earning lots of conquest which means lots of gear, they need it!

[Screenshots] SWTOR – The Kids!

This weekend was another double XP weekend, and while I didn’t get to play as much as I wanted I still got pretty far on “the kids”. I have future/potential kids for Kazta and my Jedi Consular on a different server — I’m not the only one who makes kid characters right?

Zamarra and Kif’s daughter got to 50 and finished her main storyline, while Kazta’s son got high enough to recruit dad. It’s really fun to RP that they are running around doing dad and son stuff together. He probably has a to-do list like in the movie “Elf” that includes baking cookies and snuggling. Also a lot of shooting, given who his parents are.

[Screenshots] SWTOR – Crisis on Umbara

So this post is a day late because I messed up and didn’t get any screenshots from my main (Kazta) playthrough, and you’re unable to re-play the cutscenes as this isn’t actually a chapter. So my Sith Marauder is standing in for her, and made all the same choices which — really, probably isn’t in-character but she’s not my canon Outlander anyway so it doesn’t matter.

This was a small update, pretty much just the new flashpoint and the new stronghold. It requires 60 of the currency, so no one will be able to get it until next week. I’m not sure if I want to buy it or not yet, I want to visit one first, but there are other things on the vendor that I want so I’ll start saving up. The flashpoint kind of gave me flashbacks to the train dungeon in WoD which believe me is not a good thing. There were fewer crate obstacles, crap on the ground, and LoS issues in here, at least.

Behind a cut for major story spoilers, and my thoughts on that are below too.

[Screenshots] SWTOR – War for Iokath

The new patch? Expansion? Came out today. This one doesn’t have the chapter system, so I’m not sure how much of the content I’ve done or what is left. I got as far as unlocking some dailies, but by that point I’d already capped my rep gains for the week so I opted to stop there and wait. I’m going to try tomorrow to see if Imp rep is separate so I can see that side of the story.

I have to say that from a purely objective standpoint, it would have made sense to ally with the Empire. As Lana points out, they did support me previously and they hadn’t made any aggressive moves toward me. At the same time, I always play Kazta as in-character as possible. I think it would be very difficult for her to just erase all those years of loyal Republic service, and she has seen what the Empire can do to aliens and innocents.¬†She also has a great deal of admiration for Supreme Commander Malcom, as well as a very close bond with her former squad-mate, Elara. There was one short scene where they caught up, I assume there would be a little more with a romanced Elara. I am curious to see things from the other perspective.

It’s my hope the storyline will be furthered in later patches, because there were a lot of threads left hanging. Overall it’s okay, though the faction conflict seems pretty artificial, previously it had been moving toward being allies against the Eternal Empire, but now it’s no longer a threat. It just feels kind of artificial, the way Blizzard keeps dragging out the Horde vs Alliance thing even when it’s way past being stale. I do very much appreciate that I can farm regular mobs for command points, and they drop reputation items. I sure would have appreciated that in the Broken Isles.

Screenshots below the cut!

[Screenshots] SWTOR 5th Anniversary Collage

A while back they asked for people to send in screenshots of their character for a giant collage, the other day it was posted!

Obviously I had to find Kazta. She’s actually really close to the top, just above the “Old Republic” part of the logo, under the “R” in “Wars”. It’s cool seeing everyone’s characters and what they chose for their screenshot!
