And the WoW content dwindles even more. Blame Arv for not having intarwebz last night, thus forcing us to begrudgingly call the raid and force ourselves to play ToR instead. I’m not even sure how many logged in to see if we were raiding … I sorta just asked in ToR guild chat and didn’t bother logging over. >.>
So … I mentioned yesterday how Slice found where the screenshots go, and promised pics today. Unfortunately, it doesn’t save them at the same screen resolution as I play on, like WoW does. Must be something in the settings, I will have to dig around some more and try to find it. So they are these ugly squished squares instead of the nice widescreen that I actually play on. That won’t stop me from posting them but … yeah. Also, the quality of the in-game shots is lower than that of the character screen shots, presumably because of my graphics settings (ultra? what is that I don’t even …)
First up is Junahu. Her brilliant emerald eyes don’t really show up like they do on-screen in the dialogue scenes, but trust me … they are really something.
Next is Arelin. I dare you to tell me he doesn’t look badass. I love his hair, I love his shining red eyes … I even love his gold facial jewelry.
One more, taken in-game to show the difference in graphic quality, and also because he still looks badass despite it, especially with the stark environment of Korriban in the background.
Now, you all know how I whined about being capped at 15 on the free trial. Well … that is over. Yes, I had three days left on my trial. And, oh yeah, it’s a free weekend coming up, so I technically have four days because I could have played Sunday for free as well. But … Van … well, look at this face and tell me YOU could leave him sitting around a cantina with Kaliyo for four more days while you got your other alts up to 15 because you couldn’t do anything else.
Ugh, that looked so much better in widescreen. But really … his eyes are easily as beautiful as the others. Even Cayle commented on them when he saw him. He has a very sexy voice to go along with his looks, too.
Oh, he also got this last night.
Yes, that IS my very own starship.
I played around under the hood of the preferences menu last night as well … got some things changed around, got an extra action bar on-screen and the keys bound because flipping through action bars is … archaic, got a buncha crap bound and extra keys mapped so I can use them, etc. I also did some reading yesterday and tried some new things in my questing, like commanding Kaliyo to attack and having her ‘tank’ for me while I tossed a few grenades and explosive probes and kept her healed. I dislike how tiny the buffs are above my bar, it makes it difficult to see when I have tactical advantage up. Yeah, I know, it’s not exactly that important for questing at level 15 but if I learn the healing mechanics NOW I will be a better healer at 50.
Zari … it’s ok, I still love you. We’ll raid together tomorrow, ya? (hugs)
Oh yeah! We had a special visitor last night too. Welcome back to SR, Pie! We have cookies. 😉
