    FYI, if anyone else was waiting, it looks like they've fixed the Eternal Championship arena on Zakuul (part of Bowdaar's "Freedom Fight" recruitment); it's now got enemies properly scaled to your (capped) level again.

    So are there any xp legacy unlocks for that apply to the heroic missions ? If there are I would like to unlock them before I start grinding them.

  • Commander ZoomCommander Zoom Registered User regular
    I'm not aware of any. It doesn't seem to fit into any of the categories for which there are bonus xp unlocks.

    That said, you did remind me of this list (which I originally found on Reddit - not my own work), which gives rough lengths/completion times and Alliance crates for all the heroic missions.

    I have officially maxed out both the Industrial prefab MK-1 decos and the Synthetic prefab MK-1 decos. I'm working on the Universal prefab MK-1s now. These are slightly trickier to find because a bunch of different vendors have a single item that takes an MK-1 or an MK-3 (usually planetary vendors), so I have to look around for everyone that has those decos after I max out the stuff from the Universal Prefab vendor.

    Edit: Also the new patch comes out tomorrow.

    I don't think I want to go for the Alderaan stronghold.

    I have concerns about the long term value of the property.

    So!

    It's been a private joke between, like, me and one friend who doesn't even play TOR that the Daniel Craig Bond themes, in release order, are surprisingly suited for an Imperial Agent, even when release order is considered. Yes, they're spy fiction, and probably the spy fiction that the Agent story was based on.

    But holy shit. They're getting eerily accurate, especially for my playthrough.
    Act I: You Know My Name (A good spy-themed song. Ironically, most of the galaxy doesn't know his actual name, because Cipher Nine.)
    Act II: Another Way To Die. (A song about paranoia and not trusting anyone. Act II is about double and even triple agents.)
    Act III/Rise of the Hutt Cartel: Skyfall (A song about coming to the end of a narrative, as Imperial Intelligence is hollowed out from the inside and he, in my playthrough, erases himself from all known records with the Black Codex and disappears into the galaxy. Also Skyfall kinda fits Makeb literally, even if the lyrics don't match the storyline at all.)
    Hutt Cartel/Shadow of Revan: Writing's On The Wall (A song about falling in love with someone and not knowing what to do without them. At the end of Act III, my Imperial Agent loses contact with Shara Jenn, whom he still carried a torch for. After Shara was rescued and sent to be deprogrammed, presumably leaving his life forever, he stumbled into Theron Shan, and, well...)

    Today, the new Bond theme, No Time To Die by Billie Eilish, came out.



    It's a song about loving and/or living a lie, which works both as a symbol of his growing distance from both the Empire and the Chiss Ascendancy over the KotFE/KotET story, and more literally with his relationship with Theron Shan, near the end of the Eternal Throne story.

    Man updating on this client is kind of super fucking slow isn’t it?

    That said been leveling on heroics and I’m surprised at how profitable it is. Will still have to grind out tech fragments to buy his set pieces but 2 million was made in relatively short time.

    Also new content out as of yesterday, along with the new stronghold. Just a few conversations and a short cutscene on Dantooine, but they include a few lines of unique dialog for each class.

    They also added new cosmetic gear, including IG-11 flair, Tau Idair's armor, and Han. The armor set is just Han. Except the stripes are yellow and on the front of his legs instead of red and on the side.

    So I hit 70 skipped to Jedi under siege and then went back to give the department heads their boxes . Got two mounts out of it , the ice cat (2.5 mil) and the zakul taxi (5 mil) . So that was pretty lucky beats buying them from the vendor in any case . Needed a cool looking mount anyway .

    oh, and speaking of my Agent... here he is.
    vbDUzAa.jpg

    Niimo, pronounced "Nemo", as in "no one".

    Born blind, milky eyes in a dark brown face, and discarded by parents he never knew. Rescued, after a fashion, by Imperial Intelligence, who saw potential in a quiet, smart, determined boy with no data trail; given sight, after a fashion, with cybernetic implants; raised, after a fashion, by men and women with a particular set of skills. They taught him to kill - with blasters, knives, his hands if necessary; to lie - charm, flirt, smile like he meant it; and above all, to obey, reminding him at every turn of the consequences of failure, of disloyalty, that everything the Empire had given him could be taken away.

    He sees the world through scan lines, in grainy color and night-vision greys - light, dark, it's all the same to him. He sees the world looking back, often with distrust or fear or revulsion. He doesn't blink (or weep), can't, hasn't needed to for years. He is the observer, the outsider, the mimic: going where he's told, becoming someone else and then discarding that identity when it's no longer of use to him. Names, pasts, friendships, romances - they all get peeled away and dropped in the trash, like a shed skin or a pair of plastoid gloves. The only constant is service to his nation, his people, and those ends justify the often ruthless and unsavory means.

    He has been the dutiful patriot, the helpless puppet, the unfettered rogue. His loyalty to the Empire has been tested, shaken, redefined. Once he silently chafed under the cruel whims and arbitrary rule of the Sith; now he calls one his wife, and can only tell his former lover and protege, "It's complicated." (It always is.)

    Cipher. Outlander. Commander. Who will he be next?

    Some people don't read the chat no matter what. They might even have it hidden by default. Some people see the chat and then don't give a fuck what you say. I don't understand either group when they're running an op or flashpoint they're clearly not familiar with.

    In my continuing quest to GET ALL THE DECOS, I believe I've maxed out on every deco that costs 35k and below. To aid in finding them all, I finally used TOR decorating and realized there were a few that I was completely forgetting about - https://tord.mmo-fashion.com/strongholds-vendors-npcs/

    Namely, the Rishi vendor, and the vendor on Odessan. FYI, when I say 35k and below, I'm referring specifically to those decos that can be bought with credits and nothing else (Also, this is no joke in the credits department - I've spent hundreds of millions of credits on this). So that still leaves stuff like the Ossus deco vendor who takes both ossus tokens and credits - on that vendor I'm just about to finish up the 15k decos, and the next stup up from that I think is 45k.

    Work on the decos that require crafting. The universal prefabs are, as expected, more complicated to craft. I've run into my first major bottleneck: One of the pieces you have to craft to be able to make a Universal prefab requires colored crystals. Now if you've ever done any artifice or synthweaving crafting, you understand the problem immediately: for every crafting mission level there is only ONE colored crystal mission, and the color of crystals you get from that mission are completely random. So you can't focus on just getting blue crystals, you send the color mission out and hope it doesn't come back red (pretty much the most useless color of crystal you can get, at least for the lower level crafting). You'd think you could mitigate this problem by going planet-side and gathering stuff, but you don't get much luckier there, either. Archaeology has three different types of nodes - power crystals, artifacts, and color crystals. So you only have a 1/3 chance of finding the right node. And then once you find the right node, there's only a 1/3 chance that it is the correct color. And that's if you find ANY nodes at all - archaeology is the only gathering skill that you can't use on random mobs you kill in flashpoints, and the nodes are rare planetside, too. There's no winning from any vector.

    Luckily none of the really important end-level gear requires color crystals so for most crafting this is a non-issue. But not for deco crafting, oh no.

    Grinding for tech fragments is fucking obnoxious . So far I just spam flashpoint and disassemble everything but it’s still taking forever. So I decided to run an experiment instead of another run . I bought all the armor maintenance gifts from the Jawa vendor I could to see how much it would level hk51 . Took about 600 gifts with the legacy bonus for gifts maxed out . So yeah first lvl 50 companion.

    If you're a trooper, and never had a romantic relationship with her, you can start one, even as a woman. Hooray!

    I haven’t played SwTOR in years and
    there is no name in the above post.

    But I knew it was Elarra Dorne, and I am the most excited.

    Ok so a bit of a silly take but I have never been able to get into video game romance if it’s between a create a character. Especially dragon age romances (only played DA1) . Between two characters that are established never bothers me but if I make a character and the one chick who has been a massive bitch the whole game and suddenly wants me after I bought twenty trinkets at a market and and shoved them down her throat right after has always made me burst into laughter and I can’t take it seriously . Maybe I’m being weird .

Maybe I’m being weird .

    I really like Bioware romances, but I also try to make dialogue choices that my intended love interest approves of so that it's not just a "buy your love" scenario. Though admittedly for some of my evil characters in SWTOR, I just said the bad stuff when my romance wasn't in the party.

    Though one fun thing about Elara Dorne in the late chapters is
    when she reappears after my character is the leader of the resistance who has publiclly been an evil little shit for all to see, she will not rejoin my coalition nor restart our romance. I thought that was a cool detail.

    Edit: Also just to add a small defense of DA1, no matter how high you get the affection level on certain characters, there are still things that they will NOT ACCEPT from you, and if you do them you end the relationship. There are also some characters that have their own goals that they complete whether you help them or not. This, funnily enough, was a criticism levied at the game or at those characters, that they wouldn't just act as your marionettes once you gave them enough gifts. Those people are, of course, ridiculously wrong, and having characters with motives that remain unchanged regardless of how much they love you is one of the absolute best things about the Dragon Age franchise as a whole. (and happens in all three games, to continued gamer gnashing of teeth)

    No no, I don't think it's just you at all, it's a common complaint that I hear, that's why I wanted to address it, ha ha.

    All right meteor brawler set complete and tactical bought! No more running hammer station unless I want to play an alt and I don’t think I do . Will focus on doing heroics for fun and saving up for the super cool stuff people put on the auction house. Pyrotech does massive amounts of damage with this set .

    Edit - man it was lucky I finished everything yesterday , apparently it was the last day of my sub. So today I did all the Star fortress stuff and got the companions .

    I've been playing this for the last month or so, it's been fun getting back into it!

    I'm making myself do the class stories before I get into the expansion stuff though, so I can meet all of the companions who will show back up

    I'm currently on Jedi Knight and have already done Smuggler and Bounty Hunter

    What's your favorite bi-weekly event? Mine's bounty hunter week, which conveniently is this week.

    Sic transit gloria mundi.

    I should try that since I’m literally playing a bounty hunter.

    Yeah I should do that with my BH, at least enough to get that cool helmet

    I'm doing that on my alts because my new BH is going cowgirl gunslinger style, not Mando, and she needs a Nice Hat.

    I went full Mando, because I'm basic like that

    I tried to get a little more experimental with my Smuggler, though, I'm kind of trying to make him less of a Han Solo criminal type and more of a Poe Dameron hotshot pilot type

    To that end I've been playing a lot of galactic starfighter

    My Mando actually split the difference. I’ll post it when I get home, I’m super happy with how it turned out.

    Hot tip: at some point, completed bounty contracts stopped being items and started being currency. If you have any leftover contracts, you can't use them with the vendors. But you can mail them to one of your alts, and when they pick them up they'll become currency. The currency is per character, not account-wide, but since almost everything you can buy with them is legacy bound, you shouldn't have too much difficulty unless you spread your efforts too thinly.

    Added bonus is that there are tokens you can buy at the bounty vendor that you can trade to other characters so that your bounty contracts will all be on the same character if needed. (I do this because I'm saving up for some costly stuff).

    Edit: But you can't use the old style bounty contracts to "buy" the tradeable tokens, you still have to use the workaround described by Shadowen in order to get those Bounty contracts to be useable.

    What are some good places to look for ops strategies used by PUGs? It seems Dulfy stopped mid Valley of the Machine Gods.

    Logged in for the first time in awhile. Did they update the textures? Some of the outfits looked better.

    Completely forgot how to do anything lol. Is there anyway to “reset” the story to use my existing character?

    Not that I'm aware of, but the new stuff does tend to be higher rez.
    Afraid not, though there's always YouTube...
