Lost Wages in Space

They sucked me in good. Darn that Sorak. Agent Van is halfway to level cap already. Of course, the peanut gallery known as guild chat is all … you’d be 50 by now if you’d space bar! … bitches, I like to read my conversations!

At the end of last week I was complaining about how much I hated Balmorra. I couldn’t wait to get away from that place. So I finished up my class quests and moved on a level early. Nar Shaddaa … a moon orbiting Hutta, run by Hutts, filled with bright lights, casinos, and gangsters. The description alone was enough to tell me it would be great, and stepping out of the spaceport to THIS view confirmed it …


I worked my butt off over the weekend … although I’m not sure it can really be labelled work when I’m having so much fun. Van swept through the entire moon, and even soloed a HEROIC-2+ quest at the end to stay there longer. I probably could have done some of the 4 person quests too if I had really wanted to, as there are people spamming general all the time looking for others. But no matter. On to Tatooine. I was still a level early for that planet, too, but no worries. Kaliyo and I are pretty hard to kill as long as I’m careful and actually set them up, not just go charging in. Discovering her ‘tank stance’ probably helped a lot for that. >.>

I got to 25 and got my speeder, and still had 20k credits left over. I kept on questing, but after a full weekend on him, I hit the final straw when yet another bonus quest went from ‘kill 20 of x’ to the followup ‘kill 40 MORE of x’ … I finished that line of quests and found a cantina. I was pissy and tired of sneaking around … I wanted to SMASH things, dammit!

Enter the warrior. Rawr, FORCE LEAP, thunderclap-like-thingy, retaliate, dammit they’re all dead oh look there’s another group rawr, FORCE LEAP, thunderclap-like-thingy, chain PUUULLLLLL! Finish quest, get rewarded with my very own Vette, heck yeah. Now things die EVEN FASTER. The two of us wreaked havoc on Korriban until there was nothing left to do (that wasn’t a group quest) and then it was off to the Imperial Fleet to get my advanced class and some crew skills. While Marauder certainly looks like fun, I am totally into the heavy armor … plus I want to have the option to spec as tank … so I picked Juggernaut. I haven’t put my points in yet because I’m not sure which tree to go with (gotta do some research today) but that’s ok. Things die just fine without that one point, seriously. I was bitching in guild chat about Vette killing the strong mobs in the first quest on Dromund Kaas before my Ravage channel finished. Of course I got facepalms for complaining that my companion does TOO MUCH dps. heh. Then it was on to Kaas City.

I ran around there for … longer than I should have. Like, an hour past bedtime long, and I wasn’t ready to quit even then but I really had no choice. Too bad I procrastinated the grocery shopping, now I have to go after work and I don’t want to, but I like to eat. Plus I’m currently drinking my last Mt. Dew that was in the fridge … sigh. I probably should play Van though, he’s not gonna get to 50 sitting in a crappy cantina in the middle of the desert. But but but …. Force Leap …. *whimper*

    I was so happy when I could leave Balmorra for Nar Shaddaa. Though the running through all the hallways and ‘tunnels’ gets a bit boring after a while 🙂

    /cancel swtor

  4. repgrind Says:

    lol Arv. NO WAY are you getting out that easy after you all sucked me in.

  5. Troutwort Says:

    Ew, everyone looks so skinny! Is ToR just Blood Elves in space?

  6. repgrind Says:

    It’s because the screenshots save in a non-widescreen format but I am playing with a widescreen resolution. It makes them look bad.

  7. Arvash Says:

    I didn’t suck you into tor, that was Sorak, he owes you $80 plus a Sand Drake….

  8. repgrind Says:

    But I resisted playing until you went over …

  9. forthepie Says:

    1) you could solo group quests with Vette.

    2) IIRC the far left spec is the tank spec, the other two are dps (the far right, might be more pvp than pve…but meh)

    3) Spoiler: you get to go back to Nar Shaddaa later, if you choose, look for a quest giver on the station. (i wanna say upper 30s)

    4) rested xp is nice, so that will help you catch up to that 1 level you lack. There are some tough mobs on Tat…so be careful as you progress.

    5) suck it WoW

  10. repgrind Says:

    Everything I read showed the center spec being used for leveling and dps … the far right spec is apparently not useful.

    I got 3 levels last night on the Sith before they guilted me into working on Van again. All of his quests on Tat are orange so … yeah. It’s not like they’re not doable, but it’s not like double teaming mobs on Arelin and Vette, either. Kali tanks them, Van heals her, and stuff that’s not us eventually dies.

  11. koalabear21 Says:

    Honestly, I think you should go with the toon that you are having the most fun with and level that one to unlock the legacy.

    Ignore Sorak & Slice, you know I do.

  12. repgrind Says:

    Eh. They’re both fun. Especially since their personalities and styles are so much different from each other. I won’t go into them here, it would take a whole big RP post to really tell you who they are.

  13. slice213 Says:

    @ koala….psh women folk.

    But yar lvl what you want but get that legacy….

  14. gromitdaddy Says:

    Good for you Arv!

  15. Sorak Says:

    Arv is you want some blackeyes like those pandas, Tyrone can help you out.

    I hear he needs a vent for all his roid raging.

    Btw the best spec for leveling is the space bar one, Bitches!

  16. repgrind Says:

    space bar

    space bar

    space bar

    space bar

  17. wolfgangcat Says:

    No wonder it’s been so quiet in WoW…

    I might have to play ToR just to see people again 🙂

    I can hook you up with a 7 day trial 😀
