    So I took pictures to remember my Beta weekend

    These pictures are taken at 1440x900, running the game at absolutely maximum settings. I did have to resize them for ease of use.








































    Thats all! If you have questions about certain pics just ask.

    In general I loved my beta weekend, I played for about 40 hours and enjoyed every minute. The companion system is quite well done, and the crafting system utilizing companions is amazing. I was able to level to 25, and my professions were all at roughly 150. Making my companions craft didn't impede on my ability to level at all, and it was still fun and exciting to see what they came back with each time.

    I tested out pvp on my last day, and as a tank it was very enjoyable. Huttball was new and exciting, and alderaan was fun as well. The scripting of each battleground really makes you pay attention to your team, and makes you feel like you should contribute to winning the fight (Imho).

    The only problem I had during beta was on Taris, it had a coding problem that many experienced which required ridiculously long load times, and disconnected people often. But every other planet I went to was solid.

    1 Month to go!!! If you have questions about different portions of the game just ask, I tried to test everything during my beta weekend.

    Nar Shadaa is definitely my favorite scenery so far (I've only seen Korriban, Dromund Kaas, Balmorra, Nar Shadaa & Tatooine). The Vegas-esque thing is just gorgeous--especially when you take taxis to other buildings!

    Nice images... I was too afraid to press Print Screen... I was told by a buddy with full Beta Access we weren't allowed to screen shot or have any additional programs running.

    Those BW bastards are sneaky. I had to backdoor my Ventrilo because they blocked it while I was tabbed into the beta.

    Cool pics but the mounts look so dumb, lol.

    It looks like you're riding a floor buffer.

    Cool pictures! I have a few questions! Did you play a dps spec on guardian? I want to do dps and guardian, but im worried sentinel will just way outclass guardian in dps. Whats your opinion on that?

    And awesome armor. Where did you get it?

    It's really very doable--we had like 5 people in my guild at or above level 25 this past beta weekend. I personally played:
    Friday 4pm PST to 8pm PST, then 10pm to 4am -- 10 hours playtime
    Saturday 3pm PST to 6am PST, break for dinner & watch tv in there somewhere about 2 hours total -- 13 hours playtime
    Sunday 2pm to 7pm PST -- 5 hours playtime

    Skipped no cutscenes or voiceovers. So 26 levels in 28 hours, about? That doesn't seem too bad to me

    I personally played guardian in PvP. It seemed sentinels did more damage, but as a guardian I had far more utility. Taunt basically forced the target to attack you. It gave the target a serious reduction in damage if they attacked anyone but me. My stun was also invaluable.

    Personally I really liked the playstyle of Guardian. However, sentinel isn't what I played so i can't do to large of a compare/contrast 8(.


    As for my armor it was a moddable armor that required +2 light side. It dropped off of a target of a 4 man group quest on Nar Shaddaa.
