To-do List for 1.4?

While whether 1.4 is a full thing or not, it has been more or less confirmed by various interviews that Terror From Beyond will be out in September. Which means if they do put it on the Public Test Server (I’d think so, but who knows), it’ll probably be sometime soon.

Considering I have yet to actually get any kind of To-Do List completed 100%, I expect this to also be a failure (which actually makes me incredibly upset), but I figured I’d at least try and make this get all set up along with an average of about how much each will cost…if anything.

So, recently, there’s been discussion on the 4-set bonus and when it could be beneficial. When learning a fight, it could probably help. Similarly, more healing is always helpful if you do not actually need that force.

I mean, sometimes I get low…but not enough to really benefit from it and most of the time if I do get low, it’s because I’m about to die.

Out of curiousity, however, I looked up to see what the different would be. Bonus Healing would go down 1.8. Crit chance would go down a bit too, but like .09% or something–nothing big. …The question is, however, how much healing is that anyway?

I mean, I could get another Elegant Top and give it the set bonus with everything else the same (of course, I’d need another Augment Kit, Resolve Augment, Mettle Mod, and Quick Savant enhancement for it…) as I’d only have to change one thing if I got Campaign for BOTH my Gloves and Boots as those have the higher willpower with Force-Mystic…but bleh. Just a lot to think about.

Researching, Boxes, Info, Answers, Gear

As usual, I will probably ignore the order of my header and get to each part as I feel like it πŸ˜› When it comes to pets, I will always have a lot to say and will probably end up answering with more than you even cared to know.

I was hoping to do a lot of Research today. Maybe try running Lost Island normal to see if any pets dropped, maybe try running around places in search of a Lobelode, more box hunting, more Orochick theories… in the end, I didn’t do much of any of it. I ended up noticing I was very close to getting another War Hero Relic of Boundless Ages so I decided to bite the bullet and go ahead and do so realizing regardless of whether I went with the slightly less crit chance or not, it was still an increase to healing regardless.

From there, I decided to work on getting Black Hole Commendations and I managed to get…very interesting groups. A lot of first timers each time and so things didn’t exactly go flawlessly, but at least one ended well. (Second the new people gave up, but Elidibs went and took me to finish it up…third, I had to go…and then Stoic dragged me off to KP NM–thankfully, my boyfriend got to go too so now he has the codexes and title :3)

I am now 2 BH Commendations short from getting my hat and hopefully a Mettle Mod 26 with it too. Hopefully I can do Corellia/Black Hole later. I wanted to do it now, but after more craziness, it just too late and I’m exhausted. As for what craziness, I was then dragged to PVP while also helping people do the event πŸ˜› was very interesting.

Regardless, that will leave me with 1 Advanced Mettle Mod 26, 2 Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 26, 1 Advanced Resolve Hilt 26, and 2 Advanced Resolve Armoring 26 to go.

I actually only need 100K more for the Armoring… but I, of course, need to buy the Grade 8 Materials which is an extra 300K-800K credits v-v; just…so frustrated about it.

Also, just really want to make my Trooper already. Seriously, the hold slot is really starting to bug me. Why must just extra colors be 1.5 million? T__T whhhhy.

Moving on, the mod and enhancements are still like 500K each on average. The Hilt, however, will have to be gotten from HM EC (from Kephess) which I am not looking forward to. Similarly, I do still need at least one more Campaign armoring piece for the 2-piece set bonus back (which while I don’t need, is at least helpful). I need either the Gloves (Mine guy) or the Boots (Nightmare Pilgrim) so hopefully I can get that all taken care of soon.

The next operation is supposedly the next update so it may be silly to be working so hard when the gear will be outdated shortly. But I just want to be done and prepared before the update. Similarly, I want all my characters made properly and ready to go (and I just have Zoara waiting for the 1.5 million to do that).

I just…hate making lists longer. I still have stuff from the first Legacy update I need and I just feel I’m getting further and further behind and it’s making me depressed .__.

finally, since people are asking about the Password protected stuff…they are, more often than not, little backstory writing things about my characters (or in actual character) and made-up stories. While I don’t mind people reading my thoughts (even if I will never understand why), I’m pretty shy with my story-writing so those will always be super-secret-private and whatnot. …I don’t think anyone really minds/cares anyway.

So, we had a crazy story mode EV run :/ Just several glitches and I even lagged during Soa and ran off the edge at one point in a panic so yeah. Regardless, we finished it fairly quick. Just…was really crazy. Gharj reset for one. Not too unusual, but a lot of our team reacted too slow so half died… Then on the puzzle, the Vault glitched a bit and 5/8 of us died (Myself, my boyfriend, and Sar lived)… then on the solo fights, one player ended up throwing a grenade which hit another and thus, things got messy… Was just really crazy.

In the meantime, I spent some of my Black Hole Commendations. I now have Advanced Resolve Armoring 26 in my Boots and Gloves. Also got an Advanced Mettle Mod 26 for my Top so I just need 2 more of those. I figure I’ll buy a Black Hole Force-Lord’s MK-1 Headgear next as not only will that give me the armoring for my Headgear, but it’ll give me another Mettle Mod 26. Headgear is 60 though so I’ll probably get another Black Hole Striker’s MK-1 Handwraps as that’s only 50…so just 110 Black Hole Commendations to go (Technically just 86 as I have 24 ATM).

…That’ll take a while.

Also, Elidibs told me he would give me the materials for 300K instead of the 800K I’d have to pay my guild for them which is nice of him to offer his guild’s materials. It would also mean I’d only have to pay 900K (600K for the two armorings + 300K for the stuff… not counting however much it ends up costing me Crew Skill-wise for 20 Durasteel, 12 Mandalorian Iron, and 20 Zal Alloy) over 1.4 million (800K for the materials from my guild + the 600K for the Armorings).

…regardless, considering I have only 200K to my name right now, it is going to take a while ._.

Changed back

Well, mostly.

Today, I changed back into my outfit. My boots are pretty close so I left them alone for now until I get Campaign armoring for them (or for my chest piece) as I decided to at least keep the 2-piece bonus which I’ve missed…and honestly, I really can’t afford to change them right now anyway. I’m widdled down to 200K now :/ And any repairs will need to come out of my pocket. The money given to me to change back wasn’t completely enough and I really hate how it’s 30K to take out -the exact same mods- from some Rakata+ thing while it’s just like 25K for orange stuff. Seriously. Not fair.

I’d like to hope for a KP NM run this weekend, but I think they’re mad at me.

In the meantime, I’ve messaged someone selling the Advanced Resolve Armoring 26 to see if they’d be willing to sell it cheaper if I supplied the materials. I don’t know how I’ll afford to buy the materials from my guild yet, but I figured it was worth a shot to ask the person regardless?

There’s another Advanced Mettle Mod 26 up and a Advanced Quick Savant 26 up…still both out of my price range, but it makes me happy to see them there as then maybe when I can finally afford them, it won’t be too hard to get them. Especially as I need 3 of those mods and 2 of those Enhancements x___x and then, I can just focus on Armoring…

What To Do

So, recently, it hit me exactly what day today is. It is Thursday which is our new EC Normal Day due to the HM run being on Tuesday (as Reaper can’t run Thursdays).

I…don’t really want to go. Of course, I still feel loyal to the guild, but I am just so frustrated. I don’t really care about having things on farm. We’re not helping anyone with this run (nobody needs anything). We’re just doing it. Why? To remember that we were kicked from the HM group? And considering last week we only managed to get 2/4 (due to several changes), I don’t want to go again. I just don’t.

One person already went Hiatus from Raiding. I can’t help but wonder if it is partially due to this.

But, to make things more difficult, as you know, I went and raided a HM 16-man EC run (And I have to say I love 16-man as it really helps me learn the positioning of a fight) and due to the glitch with Mine-guy, we could not finish…they did, however, fix the glitch and so I have been invited to finish it up and get my final two codexes–plus my Aratech Midnight.

I am inclined to go with that as:
1. I hate leaving things undone. Seriously.
2. It was a raid with a lot of people I knew from outside the guild who I happened to be friends with.
3. It was actually fun–sometime I haven’t felt since all the HM EC stuff in our guild.
4. It will finish off almost all my codexes. I’d only need Nightmare KP ones (the title included) and then the rest are just glitched.

Of course, regardless of which I’ll pick, I will feel bad. As it is, my boyfriend isn’t feeling too well regardless (and is beyond pissed off with the whole situation) so he will most likely not be raiding tonight. I actually do have to bake cookies with my sister (once again I have been volunteered to make cookies for people 😐 ) so I may not even be on for the EC Normal raid which starts at 8. I should be on by 8:50 though, when the EC HM raid starts (and this is why I can’t just do both).

I also just…don’t feel wanted? I mean, when the person who you originally thought hated you (later learned he just has a kind of dry sarcasm) seems to be the only one who cares about you being there or staying, there is something wrong. Or you know, if you mention not being on due to being in a car accident and get only responded to by that same person while after a pause, the other people just go back to talking about some concert or show they saw. Thanks for the concern, guys.

In the meantime, I’ve been getting even more focused on gear. This is because I just want to get out of this outfit so badly (unfortunately, I only have like 400K so not sure if I can afford too as while other stuff was lowered to like 25K, Campaign/26 stuff is 30K :|) and I’m so pissed off with them right now and just want to show I don’t suck. And it wasn’t my fault. No, I don’t know or care how your other two healers are doing it, but apparently you’re just scraping by and it seems to be luck as it still takes several goes. I think the only operation boss I’ve always seen take several goes are the two tanks in EC just because of how much precision is needed. One single lag spike could kill everyone.

The Campaign chest and gloves drop from Mine-guy while the Main-hand and Helm drop from Kephess. At the very least, I really hope I can get the chest. Then I’d at least have the chest and pants and it wouldn’t be so horrible. I would say after that, I’d really want the gloves because giant pads on the gloves are just awkward. Of course, I’d love all 4, but I’d feel like a jerk unless nobody needed them. And I still need the boots from Nightmare Pilgrim, but I have to do him 2 more times anyway for the Aratech Coral. Still, hopefully then I will never see him again. He’s not so bad for a Healer though–just need to heal A LOT and avoid circles. It’s really mostly the DPS who need to make sure they listen so they don’t kill themselves.

Going back to more gear specific stuff, I actually saw 3 Advanced Mettle Mod 26 yesterday T__T They were about 500K each and thus, I couldn’t afford any of them. Not to mention 1.5 million is also how much I’d need to make Zoara (which I really want to–I hate having a slot just filled up for no reason. I want to get her made the way she is supposed to be) or I could get the two Ship Dummies with 500K to spare. And yes, Ship Legacy stuff is still super priority to me! But I’m no where close to ever having 5 million for a GTN πŸ™ let alone the 1 million for the Dummies (which are probably the lowest priority). Not to mention I still need like 200K-300K for Miisha’s exp. stuff :/ (and I still need to get Amidaia to 50 already! And get all her companions up ._.)

Getting back to my original subject… unfortunately, when I checked this afternoon (though, still can’t afford it), all 3 were gone πŸ™ I really should’ve seen if someone could loan me credits considering how rare it seems to be that a Mettle Mod 26 shows up in the first place (I’ve seen plenty of 25’s and many 26B’s and some 26A’s but just 26 is a foreign concept).

Overall though, I still need quite a bit–even though I have been prioritizing the mods. So, list time:
Hat: Campaign Headgear Armoring
Top: Campaign Vestments Armoring, Advanced Mettle Mod 26, Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 26 (375K-500K. I could afford one right now, but it’d be all my money πŸ™ )
Gloves: Campaign Gloves Armoring
Bracers: Advanced Resolve Armoring 26 (None for sale right now, but usually 2 million v-v)
Belt: Advanced Resolve Armoring 26 (see above)
Skirt/Pants: Advanced Mettle Mod 26
Boots: Campaign Boots Armoring, Advanced Mettle Mod 26
Main Hand: Advanced Resolve Hilt 26 (Campaign Main Hand), Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 26 (See Top.)

So, I need 2 Advanced Resolve Armoring 26, 5 Campaign Drops for Armorings, 3 Advanced Mettle Mod 26, and 2 Advanced Quick Savant Enhancement 26 for a grand total of lots of emotional pain from EC HM and roughly 6.5 million credits. Lovely.

can I just have a pile of credits? please? ._. then I’d be able to finish all this junk and help my boyfriend get geared too and work on our alts so he can have more to go raid and just earning credits sucks. And while some people in our guild are starting to get these high mods, the whole making people pay for materials that everyone in the guild worked together to get really rubs me the wrong way :/ it may be cheaper (in some cases–though, I don’t believe they can make any of the ones I need ATM anyhow), but the principal of it bothers me too much.

Just Gear Listings…

More or less what I still need and where I can get it:

Advanced Adept Enhancement 26 * – May make my Surge too high so may need to stick with 25 or switch some other stuff around (Possibly a Crit and Surge to Crit and Alacrity (Insight) or a Power and Surge to Power and Alacrity (Quick Savant)) Anyway, What it’s gotten from
Advanced Quick Savant 26 – Pretty much priority to replace my 25 one. What it’s gotten from
Advanced Insight Enhancement 26 – Not sure if I need any right now, but juuuust in case, What it’s gotten from

Advanced Mettle Mod 26 – I still need 3 26’s–I do have the 25’s for now. This may make my Crit too high though which would mean switching to some Advanced Adept or Advanced Quick Savant enhancements: What it’s gotten from

Advanced Resolve Armoring 26 – Still need 6 more of these. What it’s gotten from. However, considering the whole attached to Armoring thing with Campaign, I may just need 2 (As hat, chest, skirt, boots, and gloves would be using that so just the Belt and Bracers would need to be taken care of)… I really need to go purchase 2 of these already πŸ™

And of course, I still need an Advanced Resolve Hilt 26 which has to be taken from Campaign Force-Mystic’s Lightsaber (Gotten from HM Kephess).

Mounts and Implants

So, first of all, I got my implant πŸ™‚ Managed to finally get picked up for a group finder group for a random operation–Eternity Vault (and considering I was locked out for KP, no surprise) to get the last 3 Black Hole Commendations I needed for it. I also managed to get the Tirsa Elite so yay! I no longer have any reason to do Eternity Vault ever again.

Besides that, all my mods are done! Yay. My boyfriend bought me the last Aptitude, I bought my last Mettle, and thanks to various awesome people (well, except for one who only did due to essentially being told to), I got the rest. Thank you guys so much T~T

However, my Surge is now too low. I’m not sure what to switch (Most likely a Crit + Alacrity), but this is a bit of an issue.

At the moment, I probably just need:
1. An Advanced Resolve Hilt 26–will need to take from the Campaign Force-Mystic’s Lightsaber
2. Advanced Battle Enhancement 26 – There is one for like 650K on the Market. It can be gotten from the Black Hole Striker’s MK-1 Boots. However, they cost 50 Black Hole Commendations so it’ll be… a long while before I can afford them.
3. Advanced Adept Enhancement 26 – I need at least one of these to upgrade a 25 one. There are currently none listed on the market right now though. Not to mention if my Crit gets too high (See #5), I may need to switch some Crit + Surge (not many) to Power and Surge.
4. Similarly, if the above happens, I may also need more Advanced Quick Savant. As it is, both I have are 25 so I could probably use two 26 versions of each…and more if my Crit gets too high (I have mostly Crit and Alacrity)
5. Most of the Mettle mods are 25 while all the Aptitude are 26. I actually need 3 Advanced Mettle Mod 26. At the moment, my Crit is at 35.92%. It really can’t be higher. As for why I don’t switch Mettle to Aptitude then–not only are Aptitude more expensive, but the amount of crit the 26 will add isn’t that high–but I do need the Willpower. This can just be modified more in Enhancements. There’s currently no Mettle Mod 26’s up for sale right now πŸ™
6. Finally, I still need 6 more Advanced Resolve Armoring 26.

Moving on, set bonuses are attached to the Armoring right? Some of the Campaign Force Mystic armoring is not Resolve and just…sucks. So I will probably end up having the 2 and 2 bonus which isn’t so bad–it’s what I’m used to and the extra 50 force really isn’t a big deal.

but yes, I just…I’m so close. Seriously, credits, stop being so hard to get.

anyway, I’m really not looking forward to Tuesday. I…really don’t want to switch my mods out to a outfit for a set bonus that is useless.

The Infernal

Yep! We got the title πŸ˜€ Did it within 2 hours (Only wiped a little on Soa and slightly on the Pylons (we got out alive more or less though) due to the puzzles starting before we even started them up).

Very exciting! Not to mention this means I have EV 100% done! Well, sort of, I still need the Normal mode mount, but that drops from KP too and Kaon. Hopefully we’ll do KP Nightmare and Nightmare Pilgrim soon!

Besides that, I just need one more Advanced Mettle Mod 25 (or 4 26–only have gotten 25’s, but 25 is minimum I need so!) and 2 more Advanced Aptitude Mettle Mod 25/26. And I’m just 8 BH commendations away from the Implant I need.

Depending on how it goes, it seems I may actually need more Aptitude mods…and of course, I’ll have to play around with the enhancements. I wish I had more credits so I could just get this stuff done and over with.


seriously, the next time I decide to get a enhancement before I set my mods up, just slap me.

I’m just making things worse. v-v If there was a loan system, I’d just say screw it at this point, borrow 4-5 million Credits, and get this over with because this is seriously getting to me.
