My Sith Boys

There will be WoW content on here again, I promise. Just … not today. =P

Friday night after downing Deathwing (see? WoW content!) I logged on Agent Van and got him to the end of his Chapter 1 storyline. And then proceeded to beat my head against the final boss for an hour or so. Dude … that last quest is A BITCH. I looked it up on Torhead and got a few ideas for strategies … and I did learn some things. Once my companion is down though, I’m reduced to kiting … and he has ways to immobilize me, but I have no way to slow HIM down. It takes him about two swings to smear my squishy healer butt into a new design on the floor. I’m bitching about it in chat to Arv, when Sorak logs on. He’s familiar with this quest and how buggy it is … although it would still be really tough even without the targeting bug … so he logs on Cayle and has me invite him and he comes and pounds the boss’s face in for me. And my legacy name wasn’t taken! Huzzah!!

After that, I decided that it was my turn to bash things in the face.  Or .. impale them on a lightsaber .. w/e.  So I spent some time with Arelin.  You remember him, right? Here’s a reminder …


Arelin started out as a badass. I mean, come on … a pureblood Sith, what else could he be, right? I was all like, yeah, he’s gonna be all dark and evil and … well, then he met Vette. And he tries to impress her … a Twi’lek slave! Like, what is he thinking, right? But he can’t help himself. And then he went through the initiation at the Revanite camp, and embraced their teachings. So now he seeks balance. He chooses dark side options when he feels the situation is right for it (i.e. choosing to kill someone who has done wrong) and light side options when appropriate, such as protecting innocents. Of course, this keeps his light/dark meter firmly within neutral territory. Revan would be proud. Yes, I can hear the peanut gallery out there ready to give me the speech about how you need to choose one or the other in order to get the best gear. I don’t care. This is who he is! His personality has grown and evolved as I have played with him. And I have enjoyed the time I’ve spent with him. (Force Leap RAWRRRRRRRRR!!!!) So much so, that he is currently on that planet that I love to hate. Yes, you know the one …

To counter Arelin’s personality, and because Vector made me want to try an assassin, I made an Inquisitor. I gave him different hair, different jewelry, and a different scar … but he still came out looking like Arelin’s twin. I haven’t actually decided yet whether they are twins, or whether he should be a younger brother. I’m leaning towards younger brother. Yes Zari, that IS a mohawk.

Roz’jin was just … too troll. So I changed up the end of the name a bit to Roz’ziel. Roz thinks his brother is soft. He is all cold, dark hatred. He is in full agreement with the questgiver that believes pureblood Sith should be in charge of everyone else, and believes that non-Sith should be not allowed to learn to wield the Force. He did pick up some light points for feeding the alien in the tomb of Naga Sadow … his reasoning was that allowing the creature to grow strong and kill acolytes will involve a lot more fear and blood than stripping its power and letting it slowly starve to death. So, unlike Arelin, who cared whether the creature itself suffered or not, he only cared about creating more future violence.

Also, what is more badass than a lightsaber? No, Arv, two lightsabers is a good answer, but not the one I am looking for. How about … a double-bladed lightsaber?


It seems appropriate to me that the two brothers’ personalities turned out this way. After all, Arelin went the path of Juggernaut, which is capable of a tank role, protecting others. Roz went Assassin … ok, yes, they can tank too, but somehow a stealthy light-armor wearing tank is too weird for me to process.

P.S. If anyone knows how to change the settings so it will save screenshots in the same resolution as I am playing in, please do share. WoW saves them in 1440 x 900, why must ToR save them in non-widescreen icky 1024 x 768? It squishes them and makes everyone look anorexic and I HATES IT!

    We must never tell!

  2. slice213 Says:

    sorry no idea how to save them to the larger res!

    But ….


    too much RP!!

    But i do like the Revan ideology. Sith are too evil for my tastes and jedi a bit too lawful good. (D&D I always preferred the Chaotic Good/neutral good) They did say in the patch 1.2 grey alignment items should be in

  3. repgrind Says:

    Really? o.O

    That would be awesome!

  4. slice213 Says:

    I think I saw that somewhere…guess not in this pathc but furture ones…but for you and arv

    •Orobird eggs of different types may now be poached in several locations. Those who can find means of incubation may find themselves in possession of loyal vanity pet soon.
    •Tauntaun vanity pets can now be acquired on the planet Hoth, though the exact means of acquisition are a mystery.

    I hate that you have done your storyline before I did, because you keep telling me things. /ignore this blog.

    I’ve tried both Assassin and Marauder and hated both. But, I do love the two saber model…just hate the playstyle. Also, 2 blue lightsabers is allllllll win.

    @your second screenshot:

    And that is why I purposely left it vague other than ‘zomg this boss is hard wtfbbq!’ I tried not to spoil it too much. :p

    I haven’t actually done anything on the Sin yet .. he’s sitting on the Imperial Fleet waiting for me to decide I need some Dromund Kaas. I wasn’t quite ready to run right back there since Arelin just left it. My Marauder, obviously, hasn’t been created yet.

    Hm. I almost asked if Marauder is that much different from a dps Jug, but of course, Fury is quite a bit different from Arms, so it is probably a dumb question.

    Pssh! A half sentence doth not wow content maketh. Huff!

  8. Ado had a date like that Says:

    I don’t recall a quest that road blocked me for an hour on my sniper, what was the quest name/mob name?

  9. repgrind Says:

    If I tell you, Pie will kill me.

  10. forthepie Says:

    No, I won’t. I am just sitting foot on Tat, at level 29, so I may blow through the class quests there and Alderraan.

    I do know that if you skip too much and end up underlevel, your class quests can kick your butt. The last class quest on Tat worked me over until I dinged and learned a new skill.

  11. repgrind Says:

    Yeah, I was low. I rushed them to get to my Legacy. Now that I have it, my other characters will follow a more logical line of quest progression instead of jumping ahead.

    I had to go back and finish most of Alderaan plus the entire Nar Shaddaa bonus series (minus group quests) in order to get to 32 and be ready for … whatever is next.

  12. forthepie Says:

    @previous post:

    setting foot, not sitting foot. (Sleeping Foot, good RP name for a Wild West RPG?)

    I was the healer in our band of three, so there were times as we were leveling that I would have to have help on a final boss, because I couldn’t dps down the boss(es)

  13. angerfork Says:

    Sweet…you’ve already got some of the legacy stuff planned!

    I’m curious…do the two brothers ever hang out? Like grab a beer or something while you’re at work? Or can they not stand each other?

  15. repgrind Says:

    Hmm, that’s a good question. I’m thinking, not. Or at least not on a regular basis. I’m feeling something like a 5 or 6 year difference in age between them … which isn’t a *lot* but is enough to somewhat separate their developmental stages and put them in different peer groups.

    I may have more to say, but this took me an hour to write because it’s so busy here. I hate spring.

  16. repgrind Says:

    So, I was playing Arelin last night and I realized that it’s actually called Force Charge, not Force Leap … oops. So if I confused anyone, my bad, I fayle at reading tooltips!
