Cathar will be out in the next big update (2.1) ๐Ÿ˜€ I personally do not know if I will make them (there isn’t really any other class I’d want to play. I mean, maybe Shadow DPS but that’ll probably go horridly wrong).

But yes, some stuff about the Cathar!

-They will be unlocked through the Cartel Market (600 Cartel Coins :3). And you can even change your existing character to them! ISN’T THAT COOL?! So if you want a name that you have been saving to make a Cathar, maybe go and do that now instead ๐Ÿ˜›
—-Don’t worry, it is account-wide once you’ve unlocked it so you don’t have to pay lots if you want a family of Cathar.

-Aric will be getting a make-over! He will be updated to be more detailed like the Cathar you can create ๐Ÿ™‚

And as I’m sure you saw in the video, they will be available for all classes and are coming with new hairstyles too! So cool <3 They will have their own special emote like other species for their Cathar pride :3 And tons of neat customization options. BUT YES, SCREENSHOTS: cathar3Cathar2cathar1

While I don’t know if I am definitely making a Cathar (mostly as I’d have no clue what to make them class-wise), I definitely will be looking at all the options ๐Ÿ™‚

As usual, didn’t get even close to the priorities (just 1 T__T) ๐Ÿ™ so looks like lots of buying off the GTN.


Saw the Desert Kell Drake on the Market… which means it’s tradeable <_< >_>

…one of you will help me get one, right? T~T (considering I will probably not be doing the operation for years until it can be two-manned and I’m severely overleveled)

note to self: stalk GTN for one you can afford.

Finished the Agent storyline last night! I’d probably like to continue the binocular stuff and imperial side of Makeb next, but I’d also like to see some of my other characters’ class stories. But I don’t want to do any of the planets again and there’s no way to be able to speed through just doing class stuff unless someone literally speeds you through.

You just won’t get enough experience :/ even with all the boosts. We ended up finishing at level 47.

Also ran into a weird glitch that let us (yes, us) get the Makeb quest early… reported it. Hopefully that is fixed–mostly as my boyfriend won’t be able to get the cutscene on his bounty hunter otherwise :/ Since he’s bound to it from somehow being able to witness my quest.

Anyway…new cartel packs will be out whenever they get the patch out @-@ So that’ll be interesting.

MCR-99 Droid Hunt

So, hoping today to finally get the Droid Hunt underway–even more so now that the MCR-100 has been confirmed to come from finding them all.

I’m really excited and glad they put something like this in. I hope more will be done in the future too.

Stat Frustrations

I’m still trying to figure out what to even do now, but it’s annoying that just because I hit 55, my stats dropped due to being in level 50 gear.

That is a stupid and screwed up concept. Especially as most of the gear handed out in Makeb sucks.

Of course, the way endgame gear has been to begin with along with essentially making operations “old” is stupid in itself–especially for a story-based MMO with an actual order ๐Ÿ˜

Overview Opinions

So, with the main plot of Makeb done (on the Republic side anyway) and most of some of the other things, I figured I’d just talk about it without random one-liners. I also recorded EVERYTHING on Twitch and still am so if there’s something you want to see from our journeys in Makeb or any of the new quests, feel free to go there and look at past videos (or even watch us work on exploring and the dailies in Makeb).

Makeb is beautiful and has one of my new favorite areas in the game–the Sunken Pool in Frinn Mesa. Seriously, if I am online and in Makeb and you have no idea where I am, chances are I’m there. The only thing I have to say if that I wish all the enemies there were neutral. Taking in the sights and getting smacked by one of those pteradactyl-like things. Not to mention with everyone moving around and having things they do, it felt much more alive than other planets.

Anyway, the storyline was a bit shorter than I expected, but still played out well. I didn’t expect a Hutt to speak anything but Huttese.

The only disappointment I can say I had is probably at the end–that you couldn’t save the planet and that it just “stops”. I just wish we could’ve done something–I think that’d have been really cool. Although, considering what happened, I wish all the enemies were gone so we could just explore Makeb in all it’s prettiness ๐Ÿ™

The cutscenes are great though and it’s still a lot of fun. I did expect more from the Tobarro (rather than a single robot and then just him–kind of reminded me of what happened on Quest to be honest), but not a big deal.

Onto the Datacrons… I’m sad there were only 2–and they were both kind of cruel to get to. I really dislike Pipes @-@ Never was good with them. I’m not sure how long it took us for the Endurance one–maybe 2-3 hours? We actually did pretty well, considering. Mar-gon mostly had issues with bouncing off stuff (I actually had to pull him on the platform before the final stretch) while I managed to miss the scaffolding (which almost happened AGAIN during my next run back). I think I did pretty good soloing the mobs though.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to finishing the GSI stuff. Just need to find people to do the Heroics with.

Also, the Hero of Citizens quests are interesting, but I hate that you can’t just get them all. I understand why (apparently changes the end), but it’s bothering my OCPD >_>

As for the Digging and Binocular stuff, I do find them fun for the most part. Digging can get annoying sometimes though–especially the ship parts. Dread Seed areas are so creepy though :/

Going to stat stuff + skill changes, while I am still frustrated with what I had to change in my tree at first, it’s essentially fine now and my healing never really took a downfall or anything–it still seemed the same. I would say my biggest issue is the Resplendence proc which now effects Salvation and Noble Sacrifice. With my rotation, I often use Salvation and then Noble Sacrifice which means Salvation almost always gets the proc and then I lose more HP with Noble Sacrifice. Resplendence stacks up to 3 times. Noble Sacrifice uses it just once while Salvation will use all that you have. It takes off about .6-.7 seconds on Salvation so for all 3, it’ll be instant. Noble Sacrifice’s 1 is the usual of “now you won’t lose force for the force regaining move which is stupid on so many levels”. I just wish they were separate procs or maybe Salvation didn’t take ALL OF IT. v-v; Just annoying.

Also no idea what they did with crit/surge/alacrity other than that mine is a lot lower now and I’m super confused.

But yeah, overall, I am enjoying Makeb. I still think the achievement system is a mess/glitchy though and I wish it didn’t exist, although, it can be a bit fun. Also sad about another HM and higher difficulty pet. Nothing is wrong with putting one in story mode, god. I think though, once I finish all the quests and exploration though, I’ll probably be frustrated again unless I magically manage to be able to murder ops solo and not be behind anymore.

Edit: And done! The GSI quests are now done @-@ The final bosses are evil and Shroud being alive still was evil (although, not too surprising since his body disappeared). I enjoyed the speeder jumping in the quest before Shroud’s fight though.

Ilum was super creepy though and I expect to have nightmares.

Both end boss fights were kind of glitchy… but yeah, just happy to be done.

In which Mari plays Makeb/The expansion stuff on her sage

Also streaming on Twitch while I play since Livestream hates me lately for recording purposes.

But yes, comments so far:


3. That robot looks scarier than he is.

4. My quick travel glitched out ๐Ÿ™ it got used, but didn’t teleport me (my game crashed instead)

In which I am completely unprepared and this should surprise no one.

While we had planned to get some experience lined up and have the game running to start patching, due to general allergy suffering of sneezing your brain out and general craziness in real life besides that, things haven’t really worked out. I still have yet to even find a chance to go to Gamestop and Best Buy to check for cards ๐Ÿ™ Which I really want to do as everyone has been so nice and I want to throw cards at you all. T~T

As it is, several things have made me feel sad getting on, such as:
1. Incomplete pet collection
2. Feeling uncomfortable whenever I get on due to hate.
3. Just general discouragement with the way certain things are done. I’ve made enough rants on raids and how I wish HM and NM were solely for gear and didn’t have vanity items attached to them so I will resist breaking into that again.
4. Still hating the Reputation and Achievement systems. <-- this one tends to confuse people a lot, so I will explain. More or less, I do not mind them specifically, but my main issues with the reputation system are: 1. It's a late system and the fact that it had to be mixed with past things. I really wish it was just the Gree event and then continued to Makeb. I think Makeb does the system great, but them trying to force in on past things is just kind of annoying. ----This is especially apparent where with Voss, you have to repeatedly do a quest for the 4 heroics for reputation. ----I know they have quest logs. I have asked Customer Support before if I have done a quest when I can't get it to appear because there sadly are not visible quest logs for members and have gotten an answer everytime. There is no reason they couldn't have credited people based on the quests they did. 2. The Limit per week. I would think the reputation system is so you play more by torturing yourself re-doing things and the limit kind of pauses that? I get that it probably is made to extend time, but it really makes it hard to bother. Kind of like when I was hunting for pets–the 2 times a week for raids sucked–at least make story mode constant =( not like gear in those modes is anything helpful. Or you know, just stop putting vanity stuff in raids–that’d be nice. Story for the story and HM and NM for gear grinding. And then I can just do my story and never see them again ๐Ÿ˜€ Moving back to my original sentiment, I repeatedly did Lost Island all day until I got my midnight Rakling. I was motivated. I was ready. This takes my ready and tosses it out the window.
3. The fact that we can’t purchase ahead of time and just not be able to activate it until the rank. I’m a paranoid person after seeing past things be removed and due to the limit, I can’t even do a rush of urgency. It just makes me feel there’s no hope whatsoever.
4. The space missions only being for HM space missions. Ignoring that I feel it should be general Republic/Imperial stuff for any quests in relation to those, the fact that it’s not all the space missions stinks. I can’t even DO the HM space missions ๐Ÿ™

I think the Achievement system does do a better job overall–with it actually taking account of what you’ve done, but parts of it just frustrate me a lot. And I can see myself torturing myself to try and get it done.

and no, Duhtect, I won’t sell you my crate. Stop it. XP

but yes, I have my new tree up (and hopefully can rush to 55 so I can get it set). For those curious, it is as follows:
Seer: 36, Telekinetics: 5, Balanced: 0

Starting from the bottom of Seer, left to right:
2 – 3 – 2
1 – 1/2 – 2
2 – 1 – 2 – 2
1 – 2 —– 0
0 – 1 – 2 – 2
0 – 3 – 1

Telekinetics, from the bottom:
0 – 2 – 3

I plan to put my remaining 5 points in:
1 more in Pain Bearer to re-have 2/2 in it.
2 again in Will of the Jedi (the bottom row, all the way to the right in Balance)
and 2 again in Telekinetic Defense (2nd row, all the way to the right)

which will bring my tree back to what it was + new skills. I still think it’s stupid it expanded wide instead of up, but whatever… I will probably do Will of the Jedi (2), 2 in Telekinetic Defense, and then my last 1 in Pain Bearer.

Edit: Okay, can officially say I’m annoyed at achievements due to so many needing to be redone -_-

Nekarr Cats and Hutt Cartel

First of all, thank you SO MUCH Kwich for buying me one of the European Cartel cards T~T Really made my day.

I’m hoping to check a Gamestop and Best Buy around here soon, but due to some craziness happening in real life, stopping places hasn’t really been possible ATM.

Besides that, the expansion will be out on April 15th–April 9th for those with early access and I’m, unsurprisingly, so not ready.

Ignoring event issues and that I still need more reputation with the gree and am probably the only one who does… I still need to buy the experience boosts ahead of time for the upcoming planet and possibly get some quests stacked up to get some experience right away.

…I also should probably finish the story with my agent as well.

now if only I didn’t feel so miserable v-v
