    I'm not sure I could agree more with you then I do now.

    The whole KOT** was just garbage if you were a non-force user. I'd like to think bioware learned a lesson in NOT doing that given half the playable classes are NFU and this is far from the only place that brings that particular issue up when talking about KOT** Issues.

    I hope the story is as large and involved as the KOT** stuff, but yeah, make it so it's not so Force user oriented.

    KOT** didn't even feel right unless you were the Sith Warrior or Jedi Knight because of how central the Emperor was to the story and how connected to you he was. That only makes sense with those two classes, even with the other force users it felt weird for the Emperor to be paying attention to you. The rest of the story felt OK, fighting Force with Force, but everything Emperor related was just weird.

    God yes.

    For my BH the one chapter that felt most relevant to me as something I'd want to be doing was the "heist" chapter where Gault comes back. I really did love that one. If they have to have only one overarching story I understand there are financial limitations, but they need to do a better job of giving it some variety so every class feels that it's relevant to them in some way. Given that the focus is Empire vs. Republic I'm hopeful there's a good chance they do exactly that.

    glad i waited to sub, since it got pushed back to october 22nd.

    guess i'll be subbing on the 22nd of this month, unless the cut off point for getting it free is sooner than that.

    also, been seeing videos of nautolans. they are, imo, the best done new species of them all. i wish togruta were this well done.



    they look like the actual npcs, just better. the togruta look like painted humans with weird shell hats.

    I like them but that clipping is just terrible.

    Agreed, that clipping is terrible. I doubt anything would look good on them as a result. I've personally never been able to play as anything but Human.

    I assume you want to sub for the free species? If so their website says you don't need to subscribe till just before launch, straight from the TOR website "To unlock the playable Nautolan species, be a Subscriber at any time between September 1st at 12:01AM GMT and October 22nd at 11:59PM GMT. "
    Hope, the greatest power of all!

    yeah, read that earlier today.

    i'd like to get the whole expansion free though. doesn't seem to say anything about that, but i remember there being a cut off point for getting the revan expansion free. so i've been trying to watch and see.

    I'm sure like the Togruta and Twi'lek, head gear is out completely but gamers that are trying to go for a certain look will have to watch out for anything that has a collar of any significance.

    They will likely also have to look out for anything that has certain shoulder pad graphics.

    AFAIK if you're subbed at any point after the launch of the expansion you will get the expansion. Whether that be a day after or years after. If you sub right now you get everything that's been released up to this point so I imagine it will continue being that way going forward.

    This.

    Seems to be their policy moving forward, subbing gets you all content released up until the time you sub. I imagine they'll handle it similar to KotET, with subsequent updates being for subscribers only unless you wait for it all to come out and then sub up.

    It's actually super player friendly, and if anything they could stand to turn up the monetization heat there a little bit to take pressure off other areas (ARTIFACT AUTHORIZATION CAN DIAF).

    The worst part of not subbing. I hated that I could not get the group quest gear boxes without being subbed. It was stupid.

    Rolled a Nautolan. They look pretty cool.

    I like the changes to Utilities.

    The new Character panel/inventory will take some getting used to, but I will.

    LOVE the new Amplfiers. Great idea. I'm just not sure how they'll work with adaptive gear... tied to armouring/hilt/barrel maybe?

    Not been to the new planets yet, because my highest level character has only just finished Shadow of Revan, lol...
    Check out the blog I write for LEGENDARY Indie Label Flicknife Records:

    The new mats inventory is a god send!

    It cleared 3 bank bays and half my characters inventory panels. That alone was worth the xpac! lol

    I have hardly touched it though. I was getting disconnected every 10 minutes when i was on and later on the servers went on maintenance.

    The server was packed. Most players i've seen in the game in a long time. There were 8 instances of the empire fleet when i logged in. I hope it will stabilize soon though.

    Played through all the new content in about 2 hours. The best part is after the final dungeon. I don't know why they even added XP as you hit max level after about 5-6 quests. There are enough changes to the core gameplay that will keep me around for a bit to see how it develops though, but man, I'm not holding my breath.

    to get you started on the gear boxes grind with a new renown system.

    that said, I'm currently in part too busy with other mmo's and in part - too miffed with new credit costs and 3.3 times higher conquest goals :/ for one brief moment, I was enjoying conquests again and playing alts for them.... and then.. they had to go and do... this :/

    I believe the contribution of each of the achievements was increased as well.

    So, while it's a bit harder, before the patch you could get your personal goal complete by just doing one operation. It was way too easy for the rewards you got.

    then they should have reduced the operation contribution instead of increasing the goal overall, IMO. whenever I come back to play, i come back solo. 90% of my conquest points would come from some combination of story quests, dailies and mob deaths as I was doing aforementioned quests or dailies (the other 10 percent would be conquest achievements from above which would often end up being incidental and not particularly large either). its going to be a heck of a lot harder to hit those minimums now with my playstyle.
