Patch 1.2, tomorrow or next week? + Plans

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t stressed or worried. While there has been mixed things about tomorrow (Said in the video then said that wasn’t true on the forum then apparently told it was true at PAX East?), it’s also been said that if it’s not tomorrow, we should expect 1.2 next week. (Edit: Apparently we may even expect it Wednesday, Thursday, or even Friday…or well, any day this week)

While I’m sure most people are excited, I’m just worried because I still have so much to do and despite all those numbers and things, that is actually the short version and already prioritized.

For example, some things I’d like to do are get all the codexes from bosses and flash points and hard modes. I’d like to get Battle of Ilum done (on both difficulties) along with Esseles and Directive 7’s hard modes plus False Emperor on Normal. Not to mention the vehicles that drop from certain bosses and the daily commendation ones (unfortunately, I do not have enough time to get 400 daily commendations for them :/)

I’d also have loved to get full Rakata gear. While gear isn’t my focus at all, I do like getting everything done before something big is to happen. Think of it as an expansion in a game–I’d like to get all goals and things out of the way so I can focus on the new content, rather than constantly feel like I’m backtracking.

As it is, other than money earning and codexes you can get from the planets, the only real goal I’ve had that fits into those kinds of things is trying to get the M0GUL-Thrall Droid, which is the gold Minimech that drops from Karagga. Considering you can only do it twice a week (and I’m lucky if I ever get to go at all. Another big thank you to Bad Motivator Units for letting me go with you guys T~T), it’s definitely not likely…but I really do want it. However, I’m sure Karagga’s will be canceled completely as our guild will probably just focus on the new Operation coming.

But I suppose I’ve spoken a lot about what I want to do before 1.2…what about after though? Beyond all the Legacy stuff I want to buy, of course 😛

Well, I do plan on essentially putting myself in Alderaan to grab that Orobird egg. Then, I’ll go and buy the NVSCCS from that one vendor in the mountains and head to the fleet and buy Taunta. After that, I’ll probably either:
A. Head to Corellia for the new quests and to Voss for the open world Voss Heroic. Plus pick up the special Vehicle quests.
B. Check out the new flash point–I’m so tired of having the quest for it and not being able to do anything since it’s not our yet 😛
C. Try and fight some mobs on Hoth to find out more about the Tauntaun mystery and/or find the jerky that people are guessing may have something to do with it. Not to mention the incubator for the Orobird egg.
D. Work on Synthweaving and getting new gear and pulling out mods to put in my Elegant outfit.
E. Stalk the Market for things like the Cybertech Speeders and some other stuff…maybe find someone who wouldn’t mind if I stalked their neutral ship GTN thing.

Most likely I’ll be doing a mix of these things. Regardless, I expect the Corellia and Voss quests to be first after pet stuff (IE: If the incubator and/or other egg locations are found before then, I’ll probably be doing those things first). I’ll probably also keep my eye out for the other Orobird eggs that supposedly exist too. While the special vehicle quests are high up there, considering their requirements, it’ll probably be a while before I earn them, unfortunately.

But yes, I’m definitely excited and have a lot I want to do. And out of stuff I listed, if I did want to go all the way with getting things done before 1.2, getting all the Rakata stuff would be last, of course.

I just hope I can get most of it done and save up a good amount of money. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if any will be 🙁

First real entry.

Well, I’ve been wanting to write for a while and Guild blogs have been down so this is kind of as good a time as any. Even though I can easily keep track in my head, for some reason, I just like to write things down too.

Currently, our days on SWTOR involve doing PVP dailies (as we try to get to 65 Valor) and then sometimes a few other misc. things. Plus a raid if there is one. I don’t care for PVP, nor does my boyfriend, but I do like collecting things and with the Korrealis speeders discontinuing…we do need to get that out of the way. Of course, I still have two others to get. The Baron, which costs 2 million credits, and the Prince, which is an Imperial PVP speeder. I do not see myself getting that, so my hopes are currently lying with one of our guild mates…otherwise, I’ll have to stalk the market and save up even more money. And getting money has never been easy for me.

While it’s true that dailies do exist… they suck and I hate them XP Too repetitive and just not worth it for me. Unless I could like easily get them done in 10 minutes or something. As it is, I’m still having issues with space dailies. I’m just not very good at them.

But yes, for now, my main focus is to make sure I get the Sorveign and Baron speeders before 1.2 at the very least, plus have 200K on hold for Taunta (from the Collector’s Edition Vendor) among a few other things. I’d have liked to get a white lightsaber crystal for Nadia and maybe a purple one for Zenith, but that’s an extra 2,750,000 and I just can’t afford that and I mean they’ll be back eventually (well, white in a few months and purple somehow? Still kind of iffy on the details there).

Other things I’d like to do before 1.2 hits that probably won’t happen:
1. Get as much lore and map clear-ness as possible.
2. Buy some more Advanced Resolve 22 Augments.
3. Maybe Buy some Enhanced Insight 25 stuff. (Critical+Alacrity stuff)
4. Get full Rakata Gear
5. Finish Eternity Vault on Hard Mode (Just Soa to go) and Nightmare mode (Everything but pylons and Solo fight)
6. Finish Karagga on Normal (Fabricator onward), Hard (everything), and Nightmare modes (everything)
7. Do Battle of Ilum, False Emperor, and Kaon on normal.
8. Do Esseles, Directive 7, and Battle of Ilum on Hard mode.
9. Get Legacy to at least 35–preferably 50.
10. Save up to about 10 million or so for various legacy things. (Specific prices will be up on the “When it comes to Collecting” page.)
11. Get the Gold Pet from Karagga’s <--- Pretty much priority along with getting 65 valor and at least about 2,300,000 credits~ (2 million for Baron, 200K for Taunta, 100K so I'm not super poor and can afford repairs) 12. Finish class story (at least the first part) on Test Server for title (already hit level 10). 13. Finish Hoth Bonus Series (About the only main quest series thing I still have v-v; ) 14. Finish up Space Missions and have all the Ship parts. 15. Completely open up all my Storage Bins I will probably set up pages either later today or sometime this weekend regardless. They will mostly be used for checklists, but I suppose the pet page will be helpful to people regardless. Anyway, there isn't too much to say...but my plans for 1.2 at the moment are currently to log off by the Collector's Edition Vendor to immediately buy Taunta then rush over to Voss to try and find the Voss World Boss due to the Mastercraft Magenta I want my upgraded pink lightsaber. Also, a little down as this adorable Tauntaun is being given out at PAX East. I will most likely not be going :/ As 3 day tickets are sold out and I can’t justify the price for the hotel, gas, and tickets if I’m just going one day. It’s also Easter weekend which is a big deal in my family. I just hope I can get one somehow.

Now that most of that is out of the way, I will say that the Sorcerer story is interesting and less creepy than the Sage one can be at times, though, I do still prefer my sage. Sorcerer’s grandfather is pretty cool though (I know he’s like a great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandfather, but I could care less and just saying grandfather is shorter). It’s too bad Lord Zash is going to betray you (too many people say it at this point and I read enough so yeah), but it’s not too surprising I suppose. But she was so nice 🙁 Though, I totally called Syo being the first son in the Sage storyline too (okay, maybe not exactly the first son, but I was suspicious of him being evil).

On the bright side, this totally makes my character a noble and thus, I proclaim them Princesses. Because I can.
