SWTOR blogging challenge - Day 5

Your favourite non-romance companion

Whoops! I left my computer at the school over the weekend and I really fell behind. Didn't help that after being away from it, I completely forgot about this blog challenge! Oh well...

Oh, Teeseven, definitely. In fairness, I hear a lot of good stuff about Blizz, and I haven't gotten him yet! And I like most of the companions. I haven't romanced Risha or Akaavi (yet!) and then there's Gault, and my only Knight is a girl, so Kira's pretty cool.

But really, I just adore T7's sass.

SWTOR blogging challenge - Day 4

Your favorite planet

Easily, hands-down, NAR SHADDAA. I love its noise and bustle and the chatter in the background and how much there is to look at - the signs, the billboards, the crowds... It never gets old.

It makes me wish I was better at recognizing Aurebesh, or that I could understand some of the ambient dialogue: "Otoa-wa... nanniwanki!"

SWTOR blogging challenge - Day 3

Your favourite class

Oo, that's tough. Probably smuggler, because I like the companions so much! I don't have Guss yet, but from whatI've heard about him, I think I'll enjoy having him on the crew. And I love stealth, so that's a plus. Of course, I wish my smuggler was tougher and could do a bajillion points of damage with every shot...

And most importantly, I just love the sass!

SWTOR blogging challenge - Day 2

When did you start playing

I am so tired today that I feel physically nauseated. I got an email late last night that really frustrated me and I was so stressed that it took me awhile to get to sleep. So then even though I got more sleep than I had the night before, I was still absolutely exhausted this morning.

We got access to the first round of beta testing, so we were pretty excited to go in and check things out. At the time we were still subscribing to World of Warcraft, but we let our subscription lapse there when we started playing SWTOR. We actually went to Disney World during our vacation that Christmas, and we took the computer along so that on some of our non-park days we could play!

I've been playing off and on since then.

SWTOR blogging challenge - Day 1

Your first character

During the beta I played a rattataki Intelligence Agent. However, all that remains of her is a screenshot of her at the helm of her ship - apparently I got through Dromund Kaas. I do remember being amused by the fact that the first companion you get as an Agent is also a rattataki! We were twinsies ;D

When the game actually started, I created a Knight. For a long time, she was my highest-level character; just this weekend, my Agent (not the same one!) passed her during the Thanksgiving 2XP event.

I didn't develop a whole lot of story around her, but my headcanon was that she was this wealthy socialite who didn't really want to be a Jedi, but when she was found to be Force sensitive, her parents kind of pushed her into it, and promised her if she was a good little youngling, they would give her a ronto filly of her very own when she became a padawan, and then when she was knighted they would get her the latest Czerka speeder. Sparkly purple, of course - it's her signature color.

It helped that she had an affinity for lightsaber combat. She wasn't shy about letting others know (or find out) how good she was, either. It was that, combined with always having the most elegant robes - always classy, of course, never anything in bad taste - that earned her the name Princesstabbity from her age-mates.
