Hello folks. Right off the bat, I should probably inform you that I'm more of a lurker and not a poster type; and as my posting history would imply, I only do it when I feel it's most necessary. So, no confusions about that.
But when I talk about necessities; this is ought to be the most dire. So, to fill you in, I've playing SWTOR since the official launch date, and so far I've played a Jedi Knight (Level 37), a Sith Sorcerer (Level 50) and a Sith Warrior (Level 45); whose story had compelled me to make this post.
So I see a lot of people picking apart Inquisitor story, comparing it to "ghostbusters" and I can't help but laugh it off. I mean, really? Now, I'm not so sure how Sith employ the usage of Force Ghost, but those Sith Lord ghosts look pretty powerful - if not powerful enough to be en par with Jedi manifestations; which are prescedented by Obi-Wan in New Hope as being "most powerful than you can ever imagine", and you get to BEND - As a Dark Side Inquisitor at least, as per my playstyle - these ghosts of legendary Dark Lords of the Sith to fuel your power by ancient and long-forgotten rituals and take down one of the twelve most powerful Sith below the Emperor - as said by Darth Baras in SW story - along with half the Jedi Order; padawans, knights and masters, and people still bitch about the Inquisitor story about being laughable and compare it to ghostbusters? I'm not going to comment further on this issue; as I believe I've my point and the issue here clear enough, so moving on.
Now, after Inquisitor story has teased me, rewarded me and entertained me throughoutly, Sith Warrior story has nothing but a -huge- letdown. I'll elaborate why in excruciating detail:
1. After Inquisitor story had set the prescendent of just -how- powerful a Lord of the Dark Council is, it's almost laughable how you take down Darth Vengean down at your 40s (I was at my 40s when I killed him and I'm not sure about appropriate level flow so). Yes, lorewise you took him down together with his apprentice but in-game he just stood there while you kicked Vengean's ass. Now, what I'm getting at is: You did this "for" Baras. But the question is: Why? I'm looking at it from a Dark Side perspective and I just can't figure out WHY would you just let Baras reap the spoils IF you can take down a Dark Council member in hand-to-hand combat - which in-fact, qualifies you as taking the seat in the Dark Council of the aforementioned member, again prescendented by Inquisitor story - why not just kill Baras aswell and take the seat for yourself? You've just killed a freaking Dark Council member, whose power has been set in stone by Inquisitor story, why can't / don't you kill Baras aswell? Are we led to believe that Baras is more powerful than Vengean? If so, why doesn't he just do the deed himself instead of sending a lesser to do it for him? You might say that that's his "way"; as in he gets his minions to do his stuff for him, but would he really put -all- of his plans in jeopardy, just beacuse he doesn't want to move his fat ass from his quarters? I dunno really. Please explain how this hole makes sense, beacuse I can't make sense of it for the life of me.
2. Shortly after you get Baras to his new station of power, he betrays you (Woah, who saw that coming amirite), so does Vengean's old apprentice; Lord Whatshisface and they conspire against you; trapping you under rocks and stuff alive. Then these guys called Hands find you, help you and you become the Emperor's Wrath. Then with their continued help, you start extracting your revenge from Baras, attempting to prevent him from being the Voice of the Emperor and winning. The issue here is that you do this slooooowly, loads of preparation and stuff. What I'm trying to get at is; why don't you just go to Korriban, march to the chambers of the Dark Council - slash your way if you have to. Don't ask how; you're the freaking Emperor's Wrath. If you say that it's implausible; know that you won't even -have- to, beacuse of the point I'm going to make right now: Other Sith can "sense" the truth in your words when you tell them you're the goddamn Emperor's Wrath - which pretty much puts you above the Dark Council and below / equal to Voice of the Emperor and they obey you. I mean, the assassins that serve under Darth Ekkage just do when you tell them to, why won't the lowly Honor Guards that protect Korriban? Or the Dark Council? You'd think that they'd be able to have as much as sense as some bullshit assassins. So why don't you just march to them and tell that Baras is a hack? Oh wait, the Hand guys tell that "Baras has become a lot more powerful". Right. More powerful than 11 other Dark Council members + you combined? What bullshit is this?
So I was going to argue a point about the personality of Dark Side Jaesa but I'm tired of typing now and I want to keep playing, so I'll do it later / won't do it. Anyway, the main point of this post was to argue about the holes in SW story, and my humble request of the community; which is to argue such other stories in the game - for my selfish desires to avoid them after I'm done with the Sith Warrior. Thanks, and bye!
