    Up to date for me, they even included a Q&A dated today.
    I could have sworn I saw a post by the alter guy saying they were moving their hosting to the Netherlands or something so they could give BioWare a big fat middle finger about making them remove videos. This was a bit ago, so unless I imagined that, their site just had a minor stroke, as many sites are prone to do from time to time (MMO-Champ did it here a few weeks ago and stroked out for a few days).

    I assume here you are talking about a dps commando and a tank vanguard. Would a dps vanguard use the exact same armor as a commando, then, assuming that “defense rating, shield rating, and stuff like that” are not useful? I would guess the answer is “yes” but I figure it’s worth checking anyway.

    Similarly, are there any shield generator items that you are aware of that focus on dps stats?
    I would use tank gear with vanguard, no matter what talent I’m on. And the same true for commando with dps gear.
    I don’t think shields will give you dps.
    Can someone who's played Vanguard/Powertech confirm or deny this? This just sounds completely wrong. My suspicions are raised by the fact that earlier in the Q&A he says that Merc is dps and heals while Powertech is tank. Powertech is tank and dps, unless every other piece of information I've seen about the AC is somehow wrong.

    Also just a thought if there are a large number of guilds that want to play on the same server we could chain it up so we all end up going to the same place. You can only choose 3 guilds, but those 3 guilds can choose 3 and it can spider web out. We could do it through posts on here or a seperate thread.

    The guild recruit thread needs to get bumped but i dont want to break the rules.

    Just because guild phase 2 has launched, does not mean we have to spam this thread with guild advertisements.

    That was a lot nicer than I was going to say it.

    Keep your guild crap out of this thread please.

    I can't bump it, as I posted last. It'll need to come from a person adding a guild there.

    Also, the spiderweb thing is true, but also not 100%. It greatly increases your chances of being placed on the same server if 2 guilds ally themselves to eachother. Though the spiderweb things has a chance to work as well.

    The "major hate" in Wrath was nothing compared to what Rets received in TBC.

    Lolret or Retlol was actually a common "term" and people didn't want you in their groups or raids because the stereotype was that Ret is incapable of dps at all. And if there was a holy paladin in the raid/group already, you might as well not /w at all - was futile.

    If I wasn't a GM and RL, I don't know if I could have raided at all in TBC, let alone down t5 content.

    In Wrath, even with some lingering hate, we were still a good spec, with solid dps and nice utility. People might bash on us in chat sometimes, but we got raid spots because we put out decent numbers, had great cleave AoE and some great raid utility with Cleanse, and JoL.

    For the first time, I am actually concerned over guild placement and faction balance. I wrote this to swtor.com, and will let you know when I get a response:



    Hi there. This may also go under guild support. Attached is a message I recently wrote to my guild, and I was wondering if you had anything to add to it. I'm concerned about server balance and placement.
    Also, with these numbers, are the chances of allowing us to create alts on the same server going to be impeded?
    Thanks in advance.

    This only applies to people in guilds on the official site, but I don't like what I'm seeing. I hope there are tons of non guilded Republic people to inhabit the west coast servers, or Bioware may have a hell of a time balancing the servers.

    *Also, this goes to show, again, how absolutely important it is you sign up with the guild on our swtor site to ensure you are placed with the guild. It's looking like simply creating characters on the server may be hard. I will look into this more and see how it effects our alts we will roll*

    If you go to the guild search page http://www.swtor.com/guilds/search, and look up Empire, pvp server, english, PST, and click the members button so it sorts them by number of members in guild, then do the same for Republic, it's so lopsided that it hurts.

    A quick list:

    (# of guilds including guilds with only 1 member)
    Empire guilds: 4168
    Republic guilds: 2257

    Republic top guild member numbers:
    101
    77
    76
    71
    66
    63
    53
    49
    47
    46
    45
    44

    Empire top guild member numbers:
    497 (Swifty's guild)
    497 (PC Gamer guild)
    493 (Swifty's guild 2)
    490 (Ruin multi-gaming guild)
    265 (Darth Hater guild)
    137
    127
    111
    105
    104
    85
    74 (Our guild)

    I think there will be tons of unguilded people. Many people I talk to cant be bothered with signing up ahead of time which I find wierd.

    Also, wtf swifty having two guilds? Didn't even know he was going to play SWTOR.
    I prefer chipman over swifty anyway.

    I played a commando for a while, healing spec, so let me try to answer your question. DPS commandos (mercs) and DPS vanguards (powertechs) will use similar armor because:
    1. Both use heavy armor
    2. Both want dps stats
    3. Both use aim as their main stat
    However, chances are good that once you get into min/maxing one spec might prefer different secondary stats. One might want crit/surge and the other alacrity/power (i just made up those combos as an example).

    As for shields, they are just stat sticks for non-tanking specs. Unless you are in tanking mode (spec or ability or whatever) they won't block. It's possible mercs use a second gun instead of the shield, commandos use only 1 gun so they get a shield stat stick.

    Where you can choose guilds to ally/adversary with in hopes of being placed on the same server.
