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 LOVE NAR SHADDAA!
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*
