Star Wars: The Old Republic

30 Nov

As promised, here’s my experience in playing the SWTOR weekend beta. Too bad I don’t have photos. Every time I try to get a screen shot, it just ends up with just a blacked out image. Baby daddy had the same problem too, and he’s using his own PC. We had some friends though who were able to do screen shots though.

So anyway, I had a Sith Inquisitor which I managed to level to 7. I know right! Then I decided I wanna try out the light side. So I leveled a Jedi Consular instead. I was able to get it to level 16.

The long conversations with the NPCs bored the hell out of me, honestly. It’s not like WoW wherein when you get a quest, a window will just pop up with the text of what the NPC is going to say, and then you just accept or decline. For SWTOR, the game will go into like a cinematic mode and the NPC will talk. Your answers to the NPC’s questions will affect some factors in the game like your companion‘s affection and your points towards the light or the dark side of the force. At a certain level, you’ll get a companion which levels along with you. You can equip gears and weapons to your companion. You also have the option to use your companion or not for quests. I think they count as a member for group quests. You’ll also get your own ship at around 15 or 16 I think. After I had the ship, I just played some space combat then I decided I had enough of the beta. In space combats, you will maneuver your ship and shoot through obstacles and of course, shoot the ships of the enemy.

Chances are I’ll be getting SWTOR just so I have an MMORPG to play, but I’m not too excited about it just like I was excited with WoW. but who knows, maybe I’ll also get addicted to it once I get my toon geared.
