Cave is Solved

So, the Amulet does drop from Dreadtooth, on 10 Stacks, which I believe is the max. I don’t know if the amulet is a 100% drop, but I sure hope so XD Supposedly you may be able to get it from 9 too–but he must be Nightmareish for it to drop.

Going into the cave on 16-man HM and wearing the mask while using the amulet causes a boss called the “Dreadful Entity” to spawn.

I believe you get the title “Dread Slayer” upon defeating it.

But yes, a big congrats to Carnage Gaming! Sadly, the amulet has a 24 hour cooldown so you only get one attempt a day….though, currently, if traded (it can be traded for up to 2 hours like raid gear), it resets the timer so that’s probably going to be fixed eventually. You can also watch their stream here while they try πŸ™‚

(and people thought I was crazy. HA.)

Edt: You do get the codex and title “Dread Slayer”. He also drops a Dreadful Orb.

New Cartel Pack

Skip Tracer Cartel Pack is now out costing 360 like usual. I’m patching (unfortunately didn’t get a chance to patch early like I usually do) I’ve finished patching and will be probably buy some to check it out. I’m expecting pets and knowing my luck, I will probably not get any of them.

I think I’ll just have a nervous breakdown over here :3

Apparently the backflip emote is out and the rare ship pets may be out but we shall see… Also a Holo-Shrub disguise which sounds neat.

12 pets: Desert Nekarr Cat, White Womp Weasel, Black Womp Weasel, Brown Womp Weasel, Killik Drone Larva, Blue-Speckled Gizka, Model Dominion Starfighter, Sub-Zero Mini Probe, Model Liberator Starfighter, Model Redeemer Starfighter, Model Supremacy Starfighter, Flamehair Kowakian Monkey-lizard

Box 2:

Box 3:

Brown Womp Weasel
^Double YES.

Box 4:
Killik Drone Larva <--- more yesing. Ball Toss Box 5: Ubrikki Crimson Claw Black Womp Weasel ^yesing continued Box 6 (and final box): White Womp Weasel Black Womp Weasel (This will be given to someone in the Pet channel! Whoever still needs it once it unbinds~) ^this box also gave me 5 Molecular Stabilizers. Thank you, Box #6 T~T Edit: so, items I need/want out of what I know: Blue-Speckled Gizka
Sub-Zero Miniprobe
Model Dominion Starfighter
Model Liberator Starfighter

obviously, I want any emotes/mounts/moods/pets I haven’t heard about yet though. That’s kind of a given. And then for Cartel stuff I still need… a white crystal, a cyan-blue crystal (that isn’t endurance), and the throne and Meditation chair from the last pack πŸ™

For reference, the only mount I got was the Longspur Pacer… pets I got–the ones that have pictures and say so in the pet check list, and I didn’t get any titles, emotes, or moods v-v

edit: 2 last boxes…

Box 7:
Fancy Reveler’s Hatwear
Covert Torso Energy Armor

Box 8:
Longspur Pacer
Ubrikki Sand Devil

πŸ™

Also from Patch Notes:

After Dreadtooth is defeated, Dreadful Resurgence no longer persists. Dreadful Essence must be used to increase Dreadtooth’s difficulty.
Dreadtooth’s difficulty when he is affected by 3 or more applications of Dreadful Resurgence has been decreased

About the only part that caught my interest πŸ˜› Time to save up essences and yay for easierness~

Another Dreadtooth down!

Thanks to Telanis, I got invited along and got him down at 4 stacks! πŸ˜€ It took a few tries (I think we could’ve gotten it in 2 if it wasn’t for some of the glitches we had), but we did it! And I got a new codex: CORRUPTED.

Now, after speaking to Netto, he said he didn’t get any new codex with 2 but got Corrupted with 3. So, I believe Normal is 1-2 Stacks, Corrupted is 3-4 stacks, 5-6 Stacks is Frenzied, and 7 Stacks is Nightmareish. He can’t have more than 7 stacks so… I know this was kind of debated on, but I feel it’s a bit more confirmed now.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the 7 stack is also where the amulet may drop, if it does drop from him.

SO MUCH SPECULATION T~T I do wonder if a team of 24 right now could get Dreadtooth down on 7 stacks or if they have been planning for that level increase this entire time…

EEEEEE :D

Duhtect surprised me with a Tundra Nekarr Cat! T~T WHICH MEANS MY PET COLLECTION IS COMPLETE AGAIN. YAAAAY.

tundranekarrcat

And now we’re doing HM TfB @-@ I got gloves and all the HM Survived by titles so yay! Too bad it’s not a DKP run though–maybe I could’ve used some of it already. πŸ˜› But oh well, at least I got something.

And then we even went to Dreadtooth πŸ˜€ YAYNESS. And Tourch was nice and gave me the mask so now I have part of the puzzle! WOO.

And even my boyfriend got to come <3

Dreadtooth, Alts, and things

First of all, I am starting to give up hope on the Tundra Nekarr Cat ever going down πŸ™ WHY DOES THIS ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME? Oh, you have money finally? NOW YOU WILL STILL NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD IT (and/or never see it in the first place).

Moving on, I really wish I could stalk Dreadtooth for groups. See, these are the things I’d usually do, but he has that stupid debuff to everyone outside the group that pulls and has pretty big aggro range (he chased after me at least 3 times now) so it’s just…not really a great area to watch πŸ™ I still need all his codexes though and haven’t even gotten to fight him once… just bleh. If I could camp him and solo him, I’d spend the day doing that–fighting him from 1-5 or maybe higher for testing loot and theories and things. But finding a group of 24 to do that is fairly unlikely. Nobody really cares about those things and I’m sure the cave would be solved if people were up for more experimenting

I don’t really like depending on people so I don’t ask for favors very much. Mostly because there isn’t much I can usually do to repay the person in the first place. Of course, MMOs require a lot of working together…but I’ve noticed most of the time, nobody has that same curiousity that I do. They just shrug it off and that’s it which means I’ll be alone again. Maybe it may be silly, but is there anything wrong with partaking in an adventure every now and then?

Regardless, hopefully we’ll get Amidaia and Revenent done and then we will probably get on Cellina and Valda…. or maybe I can convince him to help Speederisk 1 and 2 *bricked*

But yes, just trying to keep my hopes up… TUNDRA NEKARR CAT GO DOWN ALREADY GOD.

and I still have to finish space missions too…but…space missions ._.

1.6 and things

So, Tuesday is 1.6. It’s also the fireworks and I’m pretty sure it’ll probably be any special Cartel Market items or Anniversary/Life Day stuff (and if not, Life Day will probably be either next week or the week after).

I’m kind of excited, but I’m mostly stressing. Still have incomplete goals (Speeders, Gear, Codexes, Dreadtooth…) and I’m going to have to add on to the codexes :/ Should probably look up and see what Ancient Hypergates has…

I’m worried they may actually remove past cartel boxes when they add in new ones which would cause more prices to raise… And with the throne finally under 2 million, I’d rather not see it shoot back up.

Shall try and stay positive @-@ but mostly just paranoid πŸ™ As it is, I have to work that day so I may not be able to see it right away. There’s a chance it may even be up early even though delays seem more common.

Anyway, Ancient Hypergate codexes:
Ancient Hypergate: Captured a Pylon
Ancient Hypergate: Took Cover from Explosion
Ancient Hypergate: Won a Match

Unfortunately, I still don’t understand Ancient Hypergates as well, but I know the warzone is going to suck as a healer :/

and now I am dragged off to EC HM T~T I guess I can hope for the mount at least…

…I wish they’d remove the ranked requirement on that one stupid speeder ._.

EDIT: EEEE πŸ˜€ I GOT THE HM EC MOUNT YAY! <3 Edit 2: ack, forgot about the new space missions... will probably pick them all up and cry

Hmm…

I think I’m going to camp Dreadtooth today. See if I can get more information on what he drops and when and see if anyone kills him with a large amount of stacks.

…of course, I’ll only be able to camp him to a certain point due to that debuff you get when someone pulls >_> Hate that thing. At least it’ll give me something to do though.

And as people should know by now, I hate having things lingering on the backlog. 😐

…actually, before I do that, maybe I’ll do some Area Quest checking first. I’ve been meaning to do that for a while after stumbling upon that Hoth quest so EXPLORATION AWAY.

Pet Analyzation

While I wait for my boyfriend to get up so we can try out the Belsavis Dailies (although, we’d have to find 2 more people for one of them), I have decided to wander around near the entrance to the area and the fleet and see what pets people may have.

Essentially, this helps me figure out what pets are ingame without bugging people and/or getting trolled by jerks.

And of course, I’ll look for mounts too, but those are a bit harder to identify, sadly.

I will only be counting the ones in the Cartel Packs for now because, well, you can kind of see the ones not in the pack already so…

All of the pets from Dulfy’s Guide have been found and were carried over to live.

As for SWTOR-Spy’s list, I know some people have gotten thrones, but I don’t think it is any of those… another similarly named one is the Ubrikki Crimson Skull which I haven’t seen, but I have seen the Ubrikki Crimson Claw.

Moving on to pets, the only ones seen thus far have been the Red-Backed Gizka and the Ruddyscale Kowakian Monkey-lizard. No others from their pet list have been spotted yet or if they have, nobody has said anything.

The main thing is there are a lot of “What if’s” and I would like to not see something like the Wonderous Egg happen ever again. EVER.

which I think is why it upsets me so much they didn’t release a list. For the record, a list wouldn’t ruin the money they’d make (in fact, more often than not, you’d actually encourage more people to try a box) as usually what sells is the actual opening/surprise factor.

One of my favorite things when I was little was when my dad would come home with boxes of Pokemon cards and Beanie Baby cards and he and my mom and I would sit on the bed and open all of them and organize them because opening booster packs was ridiculously fun and there were so many. That is essentially what these work on–that surprise factor and the excitement of opening something.

Just think to Christmas morning–sure, what was actually in the gift was nice, but a big part of it was just opening it and the more you had to open, the more exciting it was. With each box, the excitement increased.

and this is why people go in debt because of stupid things like this and if you see me thinking of buying more boxes, someone SLAP me.

…and for some reason, I keep getting an error when trying to log in 😐 So I guess research will be delayed which stinks. I was looking forward to it.

…seriously, this blog is like SWTOR research central. It’s why it was made. And then for some reason all of you people started reading it πŸ˜›

Anyway, I guess I’ll just talk for a bit while I wait until they somehow fix this (speaking of which, I noticed the time is off on the website… I guess they didn’t modify for DST? But I’m not sure how to change that either).

Umm…firstly, I hope they come out with customizations for HK-51. I think he’d look nice in HK-47’s copper.

I really hope we can do Dreadtooth soon. Really want to look into that cave more and since current ideas are based off a mask and necklace that drop from him (well, necklace most likely also drops from him–just on much higher stacks), I kind of need to start doing him? Of course, the guild is currently focused on NM EC as are many guilds with firsts in mind and whatnot (but honestly, how can you appropriately evaluate a first anyway? If someone starts earlier than you and has more time doing it, it’s not really a surprise if they get it first. It seems kind of odd to judge something if you don’t have everyone start at the same time)… but I just want to solve Cave mysteries πŸ™

speaking of Cave Mysteries, that was part of the fun with scanning even if it took FOREVER. It was like being an archeologist~ Considering how the story is on the Republic side, I probably will have to do HK again on my Imperial character as it’s just so much different. Part of me is looking forward to it as I did have fun, but parts of it scared me. I’M LOOKING AT YOU CREEPY SHIP. Regardless, this is making me want to finish up Corellia and Ilum for Amidaia, but I’m pretty sure my boyfriend still wants to work on his bounty hunter with Cellina πŸ™ Don’t get me wrong, the agent story is quite interesting, but I hate doing things out of order and skipping around. Having several companions with various levels isn’t very fun to me.

also just realized I never received my 500 for my subscription so I guess I shall send them an e-mail @-@

MOVING ON… someone did finish EC HM but I saw no pet drop πŸ™ Which makes me sad. I mean, it was confirmed a pet would drop from EC NM but I can’t help and be paranoid ._. of course, just because it doesn’t have a high drop rate doesn’t mean it doesn’t drop either…

Regardless, a lot of people in the guild have offered me some of their pets from the Cartel Shop so I am looking forward to when things become unbound. I will also be stalking the GTN like no tomorrow (despite the fact that I am poor and have no money and it will probably make me even more sad if I wasn’t sad enough by how much my luck sucks and these stupid boxes). In the meantime, I have started crossing things out.

While I was hoping to do trades, I don’t think anyone would want any of the stuff I’ve gotten. Of course, I may update with some stuff my boyfriend wants to get rid of or etc. so I guess I will mention when it gets updated… Also, it’s under the “Contact Me” section if anyone was curious.

speaking of items, I have a good contest idea…just need to get something people would actually want 😐

Oh, and I know I don’t have many pictures up… I will hopefully be taking pictures of the pets soon. At least, the ones I have. I don’t think taking a picture on the preview screen looks too great and I’d feel bad using other people’s pictures so… but I shall do my best to have them all soon x__x of course, we don’t even know how many there are yet.

but yes, I will stop talking about random stuff now and end this. WORK LOG-IN THINGY.

1.5 – November 15th

So, in a week, 1.5 will be upon us. This will bring:

1. Nightmare EC (I will have to add that stupid tank mount to my list. I also have only a week to try and get all the speeders I still need… I don’t see myself getting the Ranked Warzone one–EC HM one is iffy… but I can always try to save for the ones I need to buy*)
2. HK-51 and new dailies + new world boss. I will be on immediately when patch goes up. FYI CERTAIN PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHO THEY ARE.
3. The Cartel Market

So, in Nightmare EC, there was confirmed there would be a pet. I do feel it may be the Wonderous Egg (afterall, how did that rumor start?), but there is no confirmation… if it is though, at least it can be traded so I can just hope someone pities my sad existence outside the doorway.

I’ve already prepared enough gifts to get HK to 10K so yay. I’ll probably be camping myself near where the NPC will spawn the night before so I can grab the quest and head on over to Section X. I don’t really care about getting him geared out right away–I don’t expect to use him much afterall. I just want to see is story.

Still mixed feelings on the Cartel Market. Apparently it will be 5 dollars for 450 Cartel Coins so a bit under a direct transition which kind of stinks.. however, that’s been the kind of thing most cash shops have done lately :/ Still stinks though. I’ll be getting 2800 complementary though… plus a bonus 250 during the actual launch. I still feel it may be slightly off though… and well, I hope that 500 per subscribed month after launch is true. That’d be nice. I plan on buying the speeder and pet available plus 2 of the tops…rest will be spent on packs though.

I just really wish they’d make a list of everything you can get ._. Regardless, I have prepared a trade page and everyone in the Pet Channel is awesome so… shall just hope for the best.

*I have been asked a lot why I didn’t just buy these when they were cheaper. To be honest, if I could, I would have. However, my choices were between stuff that would be GONE and thus, would probably go up to ridiculous points or just the speeders sticking around. In the end, the money went towards the Koreallis Speeders, one of the Prime speeders that was rumored to be going, and to help my boyfriend get his white lightsaber crystal. Sure, I wanted one too, but I knew he wanted it more so that is where all my money went. And it sucks I couldn’t get the speeders at a lower price, but I don’t regret what I did use the credits for.

Test Server discoveries

So, I finally went and popped on to the test server for 1.5. I have had it patched for a long while, but just haven’t really gone on. I don’t plan to play around with HK-51’s quest just yet–I’ll wait until it’s up on the main servers, but I figured I’d at least scope out of the area.

For now, I’ll make sure to camp my character in the GTN area before the patch goes up so I can grab the quest from the General guy right away.

Section X kind of makes me think of Belsavis if it was blown to pieces and it was night time so yeah. I also keep aggro-ing everything. Oops.

Mobs look pretty evil looking…and there are quite a bit of them πŸ™

After wandering around like an idiot, I stumbled upon Dreadtooth pacing around the Crumbling Wall area (X:567, Y:-1734 is part of it).

So I watched him pace around and I shall end it there since I really can’t do much of anything by myself! Still, was fun to see~
