:(

So, today was supposed to be fun and exciting and goal-getting, but it kind of hasn’t. Besides getting a bit of a late start (due to stressing), most people seemed to be upset with the expansion so my ideas of hopping on and happily talking away to guild mates about excitement over the expansion information was shot to heck in minutes as my heart shattered but people are still coming anyway

However, one nice thing happened today (plus, I finished my goal page!). Prongs surprised me with some mods πŸ˜€ And he even helped Mar-gon too! Yay! He’s supposed to help me figure out a bit with my healing and if it’d be better to switch down 5% Crit by switching my Magenta Crystal to a Power one and 3 Mettle Mods to Aptitude or to keep what I have now. Looking forward to what he says, although, I’d hate to have to change things again…

TfB HM @-@ + Gear Progress

So, I was taken to TfB HM tonight as the usual sage is away this week. I wish I could say I did awesome, but I know I was kind of off. My reflexes were kind of iffy due to my sinus headache so my overheal was worse than usual (I’m pretty good at healing but not so much making sure I don’t heal someone to death) πŸ™ Will probably head to bed soon. Regardless, I did have fun~

Also, Drummer said something really sweet T~T <3 Which made my night~ Annnnd I got the mainhand! Which removes 3 things from my list of horribleness. We will be attempting EC NM tomorrow… I’m scared @-@

And I got another codex from Ancient Hypergate…another from the cubes @-@ Just need to win a match and I should (hopefully) be done.

Finally, going to Cartel Market-ness again… there’s also another throne: Dominator’s Command Throne -_- At least it doesn’t look like there are anymore pets… but I’m still paranoid πŸ™

Anyway, new gear needed list: Continue reading

Thinking of gear stuff

While I continue to fail on all speeder-related goals, I decided to calculate just how much I need for everything gear-wise.

Advanced Mettle Mod 27 x4 – 6 Durasteel, 4 Mandalorian Iron, 4 Molecular Stabilizer, 6 Zal Alloy (24 Durasteel, 16 Mandalorian Iron, 16 Molecular Stabilizers, 24 Zal Alloy for all 4)

Advanced Aptitude Mod 27 x4 – 6 Durasteel, 4 Mandalorian Iron, 4 Molecular Stabilizer, 6 Zal Alloy (24 Durasteel, 16 Mandalorian Iron, 16 Molecular Stabilizers, 24 Zal Alloy for all 4)

Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 27 x2 – 4 Corusca Gem, 4 Molecular Stabilizer, 6 Primeval Artifact Fragment, 6 Upari Crystal (8 Corusca Gem, 8 Molecular Stabilizer, 12 Primeval Artifact Fragment, 12 Upari Crystal for both)

Advanced Battle Enhancement 27 – 4 Corusca Gem, 4 Molecular Stabilizer, 6 Primeval Artifact Fragment, 6 Upari Crystal

Advanced Resolve Armoring 27 – 12 Durasteel, 8 Mandalorian Iron, 6 Molecular Stabilizer, 2 Synthetic Energy Matrix, 12 Zal Alloy

Advanced Resolve Hilt 27 – 8 Corusca Gem, 8 Molecular Stabilizer, 12 Primeval Artifact Fragment, 2 Synthetic Energy Matrix, 12 Upari Crystal

For a total of… 60 Durasteel, 40 Mandalorian Iron, 50 Molecular Stabilizers, 4 Synthetic Energy Matrix, 60 Zal Alloy, 20 Corusca Gem, 30 Primeval Artifact Fragment, 30 Upari Crystal

….I’ll just add this to my list of things that are never going to happen.

POSSIBLE:
2 extra Advanced Resolve Armoring 27 for Bracers and Belt – 12 Durasteel, 8 Mandalorian Iron, 6 Molecular Stabilizer, 2 Synthetic Energy Matrix, 12 Zal Alloy (24 Durasteel, 16 Mandalorian Iron, 12 Molecular Stabilizer, 4 Synthetic Energy Matrix, 24 Zal Alloy for both)

so with those 2, new total: 84 Durasteel, 56 Mandalorian Iron, 62 Molecular Stabilizers, 8 Synthetic Energy Matrix, 84 Zal Alloy, 20 Corusca Gem, 30 Primeval Artifact Fragment, 30 Upari Crystal

….so going on that list. ;__;

I technically need armorings still for Head, Chest, Gloves, and Legs…but I should probably aim for the Denova ones over getting them made since I’ll have to replace them with the Denova ones anyway… unfortunately, TfB has made me sad due to all the stupid drama over it. v-v so I’d rather not see it anymore. I don’t think I’m good enough anyway.

Also still need a Hazmat Force-healer’s MK-3 Relay and one more Hazmat Force-healer’s MK-4 System x-x

Wonderous Egg has never been out and nobody has one

Yep. I got a response, they went through the information and our answer:

So I passed everything on to our dev folk for investigation, I can confirm for you that no one has ever gotten the wondrous egg. My only guess can be that folks may have gotten it mixed up with the other egg (an easy mixup for sure). I also fear that the information you received from our CS agents appears to be incorrect, at least as far as we can tell, no one has ever gotten the egg nor has it been distributed in-game.

As for why it was mentioned in the Patch Notes… I’m guessing it just changed all the data on the eggs and they just wrote them all there as it was technically updated…even if not out yet. Afterall, the white crystal has been around for how long now? πŸ˜› Just not actually achievable.

What I would like to know though…who thought this was a good rumor to start? And why did so many sites put up this information without any facts clarified? It’s…frustrating.

At least it’s finally over. However, rumors say it may be the pet in Nightmare Explosive Conflict.

(on a happier note, got my enhancements yay~ Unfortunately, down to 180K due to ripping stuff out. Sorry, but I worked too hard on my 26’s to just replace them πŸ™ )

GEAR PROGRESS!

So, this nice person offered to make me 4 Advanced Adept Enhancements for just 300K! …of course that was my Consular’s Exalted fund but… I don’t think a deal like that will happen again.

Thus, I hurried off to Mr. Robot to see what I needed which was a stupid idea. They haven’t updated for 1.4, I should’ve known those were wrong…unfortunately, I always forget that Torhead lists recipe stuff too. So, I asked for the stuff from the guild bank, traded the guy…and then he told me I screwed up the Math.

What I thought it was:
Corusca Gem x2 (x8 for 4)
Molecular Stabilizer x2 (x8 for 4)
Primeval Artifact Fragment x4 (x16 for 4)
Upari Crystal x4 (x16 for 4)

What it ended up being:
Corusca Gem x4 (x16 for 4)
Molecular Stabilizer x4 (x16 for 4)
Primeval Artifact Fragment x6 (x24 for 4)
Upari Crystal x6 (x24 for 4)

And boy did I feel like a complete and utter moron. Thankfully, the person was really nice and patient with me, but I felt horrible. I didn’t want to ask the guild as I already asked for 8 which is a lot–if I asked for 8 more… I couldn’t even think of asking. They already helped me so much. And what can I do? Nothing. I can’t do anything for them. Unless they needed me to fill in for HM TfB, there is just…nothing I can do (Afterall, I do HM EC with some friends and I really wish they’d join and then we can do a bunch of stuff here but I understand why they don
t). Or if I got another Republic character to 50 (Miisha will probably be next or Roseria as it seems DPS may be more useful)….even if I don’t want to raid on anyone but Marilea, at least I’d be able to help.

Thankfully, I had some help with Corusca gems (THANK YOU TELANIS) and a guildmate even gave me a molecular stabilizer (THANK YOU AULDIN) and then my boyfriend gave me his only 7 Molecular Stabilizers and I just feel…horrible about that. I wish I could do something to make it up to him. I really do. ._.

Follow-ups

So, we have a few follow-ups to things…

1. The Cave – It totally slipped my mind to make a post besides just updating the cave post. I will continue to just put theories there, but for those who have missed it, a new clue was released:

Martin_smith: I wouldn’t worry about it right now
Martin_smith: read the words

This obviously brings up a few issues. Exactly what is being referred to with the second sentence–the red text itself (β€œYou feel a strange and chilling presence.”) or the first thing he said?

Secondly, the first part alone… This could mean:
A. It’s something not in game right now
and/or
B. Just something that can’t be done right away

I’m going to quote one of my comments real quick in reference to B:

Another idea is just that it requires multiple people to have something so you wouldn’t be able to do it right away. Kind of furthers my wondering over the first high drop rate pet as you’d only be able to get 1 a week so it would be 16 weeks (4 months) of completing HM TfB before everyone would have one.

…that’d be so cruel though.

As Telanis pointed out, technically 16 people could just go in after and then, if 16 people finished, and it was a locked out instance, yes, any 16 can go. On the otherhand, if it wasn’t, you’d need to have a group together for that first boss and the mobs on the way to the second boss.

Going on to the next follow-ups… The Wonderous Egg and Lobelode from a Dev:

To the Lobelode and the Wonderous Egg, the answer is that these two pets are not yet distributed in-game. I think this may have been a case of the community getting mis-informed by data mining.

I responded back with my concerns on the Wonderous Egg and why I had asked (The Lobelode doesn’t surprise me much, but it is nice to have that confirmed) and he asked for some links where I had been told about the Wonderous Egg and seen the information. Hoping for a response back as that is something he will definitely try and get more information on as it’s a very…odd situation.

Regardless, hopefully this means the fully confirmed answers aren’t far off and we’ll know soon. I will be moving the Lobelode off the Pet List for now.

and to end this, I wish I had 900K-1.2 million to get some Adept Enhancement 27’s πŸ™

Server Firsts and 1.4

So, if you haven’t noticed, 1.4 is up πŸ˜› While they had one delay, it seemed this went well overall… well, besides the GTN being down and no ETA on when it will be back.

I already changed my offhand and got my new healing skill. Much excitement. Hoping Mr. Robot will have the 1.4 stuff up as I want to update so badly and figure out what I need to aim for πŸ™

Unfortunately, the Hazmat Implants are still 350. So much for them being a mistake. That is ridiculous. Seriously. Especially with the changes to BH Commendations. :/ I need 2 of the Hazmat Force-Healer’s MK-4 system so if you are a Biochem and learn those and feel like helping me out, let me know? πŸ˜€ Since I don’t think I’ll have even 350–let alone 700 anytime soon.

Anyway, while I try to ignore my obvious frustration, I will probably need level 27 stuff (that is 63 right?) so I should try and figure that out. Not to mention due to the whole set bonus by armoring, I will need at least one Advanced Resolve Armoring 27 through the random Hazmat gear off the first boss in HM. That will probably be the main focus, although, getting any of the armorings would be helpful.

In the end, I would at least need 2 made–for my belt and bracers, so I need to hold out for that πŸ™ Then worry about getting one for my Top and Hat and Offhand x__x

…OR NOT. THEY DID IT. THEY USED THE CORRECT ARMORINGS. OMG. EEEEEEEEEEEEE. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS!? NO MORE UGLY CLOTHES.

*INSERTNOMOREUGLYCLOTHESDANCEHEREWITHAPPROPRIATEGIFSPLEASEUSEYOURIMAGINATION*

Regardless, I won’t switch my hat until I do get it as people still keep making such a big deal over this 4-set piece bonus. Oh well, it’s not an issue now. No declines, so may as well just deal with it as with no worry, it’d be silly not to take the bonus (even if I know how to heal without it). While Mr. Robot hasn’t completed updated the Denova Gear (equal to the Dread Guard Gear stat-wise) to reflect the hat and boots armorings correctly, it still has 3/5 right so. And yes, I am using it even if they haven’t properly updated. This blog wouldn’t be around if it wasn’t for my OCPD πŸ˜›

Unfortunately, I don’t know how long I can just keep holding on to the Rakata Ear Piece. It’s getting behind and Crit + Alacrity isn’t popping up. What I may have to do is switch to a Hazmat Force-Healer’s MK-3 Relay (of course, I’ll need to find someone who can make it or get it as a random drop) and then switch out an Aptitude Mod for a Crit mod to get my Crit back. I will need another Augment Kit then, but at least I do have an extra Resolve Augment on me (Actually, I’ll need 3 Augment Kits since I’ll need 2 for the Implants as well…thank god I have enough actual augments) Will be playing around with my stats to see if that will work, anyway. A Mettle Mod 27 actually gives me back the exact crit lost for switching the ear-piece so definitely good. …I suppose maybe I should go and switch the mod already though then and just find a Black Hole Force-lord’s MK-2 Relay in the meantime. …Does anyone have a Black Hole Force-lord’s MK-2 Relay they may be selling or they could make?

So, in general, what I need:
Advanced Resolve Armoring 27 x3 (Dread Gear Offhand actually has a 61 armoring) It seems to be roughly the same cost as a 26 armoring (of course, this could be wrong), but at the moment, that means I’ll need (for a total of 3): 30 Durasteel, 18 Mandalorian Iron, 12 Molecular Stabilizer, 6 Synthetic Energy Matrix, and 30 Zal Alloy. EDIT: May just need 1! (10, 6, 4, 2, and 10) Apparently Belt and Bracers can be modifiable.
———-And for my records, specific Advanced Resolve Armoring 27: Head, Chest, Gloves, Boots, Bottoms
Advanced Mettle Mod 27 x5 x4 (-1 if either ear piece mentioned hasn’t been gotten yet)
Advanced Aptitude Mod 27 x3 (+1 if either ear piece mentioned hasn’t been gotten yet)
Advanced Adept Enhancement 27 x4
Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 27 x2
Advanced Battle Enhancement 27 x1
Advanced Resolve Hilt 27 x1
Hazmat Force-Healer’s MK-3 Relay
Hazmat Force-healer’s MK-4 System x2 (350 Black Hole Commendations each πŸ™ )

What I can use ASAP:
Black Hole Force-lord’s MK-2 Relay
I already have a Advanced Mettle Mod 26 ready to go so.

…that will add another Augment Kit I need however πŸ™ THANK YOU PRONGS FOR THE AUGMENT KITS. <3 DEPENDING ON HOW THE OFFHAND IS (As Mr. Robot doesn’t have that modified yet but you can see my new updated wishlist to get an idea!), may try switching 1 Advanced Adept Enhancement 27 to an Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 27–if it’s still 75% surge, keep the switch…if it’s not, keep the slighter higher surge with the Adept)

moving on, I really wish I could HM TfB. I want that pet so badly. πŸ™ But it most likely won’t happen as things never drop from me and when they do, the chance of me losing is pretty high. Only time I won on my first try was the M0-GUL Thrall Droid (and that took forever to drop…and I’ve seen it 3 times since now -_-). Also want to do 16-man HM so I can help with the caveness.

So, now to the first part of my subject: I’ve stressed myself out so much, this is going to be short and sweet: I think Server firsts are silly and people should just work together.

If I wanted a server first for ANYTHING, it’d probably be a certain pet…but it’s not a necessity…and I don’t think I’d care anyway (I’d be too happy just having the pet to care if I was first or not).

Meant to post this yesterday but…

So, the raid happened last night. Unfortunately, we didn’t have 2 of our DPS regulars (one of them being our highest DPSer, the other being the one who has missed each one) and that kind of pulled us down a bit for a bit. When things did finally get together…DPS was just too short. We got Toth down though so improvement! …but yeah. It also didn’t help that I was exhausted from Apple Picking and the Renaissance Fair. I felt like a huge failure πŸ™ (and certain things happening in guild chat didn’t make me feel better) Of course, this is also why I didn’t post this last night–was exhausted and still had to take a bath so I did that and then passed out in bed.

My boyfriend hit the minimum this time too which was nice–he’s been getting better…but still low for a Sentinel which we both know. We just really need to get his gear in order. Even if the mods aren’t 26’s, we need to at least get the right ones fixed. Unfortunately, that power crystal is going to suck to get. I may try seeing if I can just switch a mod around to make up for it as that is much more manageable.

Speaking of mods, the Black Hole offhand is not going to be moddable which means I need to find another Advanced Resolve Armoring 26 and Advanced Adept Enhancement 26. I, thankfully, ended up already having an extra Advanced Aptitude Mod 26. I believe this will give me the same stats (or better) than the Black Hole which is Power + Surge related. I can hope anyway. Regardless, that has put me in quite a bind as, unsurprisingly, I can’t afford it. I could technically get an Adept from Black Hole stuff for 50 Black Hole Commendations, but I really want to save those for those overpriced new implants coming out in 1.4. Still hoping that price is a typo or something :/ otherwise if a nice Biochem may want to make me one >> πŸ˜›

And I was sucessfully able to just change one of my boyfriend’s mods so now he can keep his crit cyan. That makes things a bit easier πŸ˜›

Anyway, right now, I’ve just been debating on what to do. I really should work on getting more BH Commendations…too bad I hate every single way you can get them. I also just really want to look more into the Cave and Wonderous Egg. While the Cave is still a big mystery in itself (MYSTERY TWINS AWAY! …please ignore that I don’t have a twin), the Wonderous Egg may FINALLY be close to being solved and I am more than a bit antsy waiting for a response back.

Speaking of mysteries, however, I’m still not sure how people are finding this site in the first place~ Unless they know me ingame and cheat. *LOOKS AT PEOPLE IN STOIC AND ARJAC* XP But umm…thank you for putting up with my rambling? XD

I do wish I was better prepared for 1.4 though πŸ™ the constant failureness of preparing is really getting me down and I don’t think people realize just how much. I’ll just queue for everything for now and hope it doesn’t go horribly wrong as I really can’t afford repairs :/

A nice pick-me-up :)

Well, a friend surprised me with a nice gift–an Advanced Mettle Mod 26! πŸ˜€ Which was the last one I needed! I am now in all Rank 61’s/26’s with the exception of my Hilt (which I will need to do HM EC for). I’m just…so happy <3 It is nice to be so close! Edit: And I may be going to Nightmare Pilgrim on Tuesday! Double yay! *HOPES FOR BOOTS* And then I'll just need to beat him one more time for my Aratech Coral! πŸ˜€
