In which Mari plays her Sorcerer

THAT FIGHT WAS SO NOT FOR TWO PEOPLE ๐Ÿ˜ So many things to hit and evil red circles…

I still love the Brontosaurus-bots though. I want to ride one. And have one as a pet.

Anyway, continuing with the imperial Makeb storyline…

Edit 1: YAY IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE SAVING MAKEB! No wonder the Republic side didn’t.

Edit 2: Doing binocular and seeder droid quests now! So many puzzles already @-@ SO EXCITING.

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)

And the game is up!

So, 1.7 is officially out and the game is up. Site is still down though which means you can not buy Cartel Coins right now. Regardless, the new pack is out…

Anyway, as for reputation stuff… There’s 2 Gree Reputation pets. They are both 50K each–there is the Data Core at Newcomer and the Miniature Gray Sacant at Legend. I guess this will take a bit of grinding :/

I haven’t seen any of the other Reputation Vendors yet (kind of on Ilum so…), but going through the overview are the following titles:
Republic Battalion – Hero unlocks Hero of Section X, Legend unlocks The Section Guardian
Republic Space Armada – Hero unlocks Hero of Deep Space, Legend unlocks Hyperspace Legend
The Gree Enclave – Newcomer unlocks Gree Research Assistant, Hero unlocks Honored Silver Acute, and Legend unlocks Perfect Gold Bisector
The Voss – Friend unlocks Honored Voss-Friend, Legend unlocks The Chosen of the Voss

You can gain 12,000 a week… which seems like a lot, but I doubt you can get Legend in a week so I’m scared to think of how much you need total. Not to mention this event is only around for 2 weeks so… :/

but yes, shall update this randomly. Time to work on the pet list.


Playing my Agent and doing some Companion stuff. Really sad that I had to kill Rholl. Kaliyo needs to stop being so greedy. Wish I could’ve escaped faster and tried the other choice >< Maybe he'd still be alive then. Back to finishing Death Marks and then hopefully will finish up Belsavis with my boyfriend~ Edit: Yay for the reset button....but now I am being dragged off to Belsavis so I shall have to finish it later ๐Ÿ™ Edit 2: Finished our story on Belsavis! Also got 2 datacrons. Was nice to actually walk the laser bridge (so scary) instead of crazy cliff jumping. Edit 3: WHY IS A CORTESS AFTER ME? I left your house along! AND YOUR FATHER KILLED YOUR MOTHER FOR BEING EVIL. I DID NOTHING. WHY COME AFTER ME? I've been nice and awesome. You all are liars ๐Ÿ™ Edit 4: I reset and picked the Light side choice and STILL had to kill the Wookie *depressed* T___T Edit 5: HE LOVED YOU. WHY SO CRUEL, KALIYO? T____T Edit 6: Poor Ona ๐Ÿ™ ...also I want The Menace's/Ona's armor. Edit 7: WATCHER X WHAT ARE YOU DOING. KEEPER NO. T___T please live. and this has been Mari playing her agent and worrying too much about fictional characters. More updates to come. Edit 8: Oh, and Hunter is a butthole.

Stalking Developer Tracker for Makeb Details :D

So if you usually do not check out the Dev Tracker, I’d recommend doing so ๐Ÿ˜›

Lately, there’s been lots of interesting tidbits about Makeb and things to come like more on the story of it.

On Talent Trees:

We know you’re all very interested to hear about how the new level cap is going to affect your class, and I wanted to share a little information about the upcoming changes with you. As part of the new content, every skill tree will be expanding and you can expect significant updates. Players will earn a new skill point with each level, and new skills will be available in each skill tree. Additionally, a new active ability will be introduced for each Advanced Class. We’ll have more details about many aspects of Rise of the Hutt Cartel as we approach launch, so keep your eyes on the website and dev tracker!

Part of me is excited and part of me not so much ๐Ÿ˜› I wonder what the skill will be… and then I’d have to make room on my bars and yeah @-@ Just lots to do. Though, if I could add points to my existing skills (in case the new one sucks, I see no need for it, or just have some to spare), I’d probably just put another point in Preservation. Other possibilities (though, unlikely) are Egress (although, I’d only see this helpful in PVP), Jedi Resistance, and maybe some of the Force Lift quickness…. I guess we’ll just have to see though. Although, I’m mostly worried about how to organize my bars. And I feel like I may need to save my tree just in case.

For people worried about gear:

! While we can’t address every concern raised in this thread right now, we can reassure you that the gear you’ve obtained in our current endgame will continue to be relevant after the expansion is released, and it will provide a great bootstrap into the higher-level content offered by Rise of the Hutt Cartel. You won’t be replacing your Dread Guard gear with gear you pick up as you level, and thanks to improvements in the way item power is calculated, we won’t be handing out any entry-level gear at the new level cap.

To be honest, I’m more wondering how things may scale, if they scale at all. Will HM Flash Points and current Operations still be 50? Honestly, I’d prefer it that way (and it’d probably be more fair to people who haven’t hit 50 yet), but I’m sure a lot of people will complain about that… still, it’d make Vanity Item questing less torturous. Stupid drop rates.

On what Makeb has to offer:

To give you all a better idea of Makeb’s scope, it’s a planet of equal size to our larger planets and it contains a variety of areas โ€“ sprawling mesas, underground caverns, garden estates, and more. It introduces faction-specific storylines, new Heroic missions and bosses, repeatable mission series, and new Datacrons! The 5 new levels will occupy players for a fair amount of time, and there’s plenty of content to get you there (including a lot of stuff tucked away for the explorers out there). Keep in mind that this announcement is just the start โ€“ as we approach Makeb’s launch, you’ll see more details about the content coming with Rise of the Hutt Cartel!

OMGNEWDATACRONSYAY. DATACRONS ๐Ÿ˜€ DATACRONS. YAY FOR MORE DATACRONS. Oh and story and stuff :3 and probably new codexes~ And Garden Estates sound pretty. Especially if I can have one.

Regardless, if I wasn’t excited before, I am even more so now <3 Just hope more information (and a specific date) comes out soon. I WILL BE UP IMMEDIATELY THAT MORNING TO GET IN AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE ๐Ÿ˜€ SO EXCITED OMG.

Corellia done and Speederisk2!

So, we finished Corellia on our main imperial characters ๐Ÿ˜€ I wanted to do Ilum too, but he wanted to take a break ๐Ÿ™ We may try and finish later. I also took lots of pretty screenshots because fountains are awesome.

I decided I’d make Speederisk2 (but you can’t actually HAVE a 2 so it’s SpeederiskTWO) so he has been all set now… I kind of want to get him and Speederisk through their story quicker now in case a new legacy thingy is out for the next part of the Story that is introduced in Makeb… so I guess I won’t be permanently deleting them, but I still will make sure I have no attachment to them as characters. They can just…be there and stuff ๐Ÿ˜

Anyway, I had sent Amidaia some of Mari’s old gear which I think helped a lot. I wish the unify color thingy was working correctly again though ๐Ÿ™

…and I should probably start working on getting more companion gifts x-x

Thrones and things~

The throne is under 2 million T~T Yay. Must hope it continues to go lower. Shall continue stalking it.

In the meantime, I’ve mostly been trying to figure out what else to do. Don’t really have a good way to earn credits (I could try reverse engineering some stuff on Amidaia, but nobody is going to do materials for 26’s and I don’t have the stuff to make them) which puts a damper on most of my ideas.

Half-tempted to make more edits and make a suggestion thread but I suck at edits and I’m too shy so ๐Ÿ˜› (edit: broke down and made a suggestion thread)

Anyway, I got a response from Customer Support about those Cartel Coin Cards (REMEMBER, THEY ARE NOT OUT YET AND STILL BEING FINALIZED)… I don’t remember sending them a question though? Maybe it was about the question I asked in the Q&A?

Regardless, what they said:
1. The pet WILL DEPEND on where you buy it. So yes, you can only get the specific pet from the specific vendor. You will not be able to find that pet at any other vendors.

2. Pricing details are unknown right now (although, the original question did mention like 20 dollars so we shall see…)

3. The pet should be shown on the card with the amount.

I shall continue waiting eagerly for the proper announcement when they start showing up in stores T~T

I think I’ll go on the balloon and pull people up to the sandcrawler randomly again.

Oh, and I learned that is actually something called the Firaxan Shark (aka Firaxa) which explains the shark mount. Interesting.

I’m going to hope for a Pink Dolphin throne next.

PVP + Hoth

So, did some PVP today @-@ Kind of have to as much as I hate it… Duhtect brought me along by mistake, but I did a few matches before Mar-gon had me hop onto Cellina as I promised I’d play with him some more ๐Ÿ˜›

At the moment, most of our time has been spent camping Dootu Mu Bacha to try and get the RD-17A Hellfire Helmet that my boyfriend really wants for his bounty hunter. Sadly, no luck yet. We’ve seen two people also camping so far, but they was some Sorcerer top.

Anyway, just questing along inbetween (as you can only do 3 times in a row) and hopefully we will get more story done @-@
