  1. I will answer in a manner that implies neither my clear and present bias, nor my pandering, fauning, slobbering love of the Imperial Agent: OMG TEH AGENTZ DA BEZT!

    Carry on.

    • Having done both scoundrel and gunslinger, I can honestly say that I suck at both and would be the worst. agent. ever.

      • But it’s the best storyline in the game!

        Okay, I may care more about story than how easy classes are to play. Or even whether or not I suck at playing them. I’ll frankly admit that gunslinger/sniper is probably the squishiest class(es) in the game. But I had more fun playing my Agent than any other class so far. (Now, if one absolutely hates being squishy…)

  2. Every piece of armor I have gotten – green, blue, whatever – has looked badass.

    Just wait until they start giving you funny skirts and armour with random pointy bits; you’ll sing a different song then…

  3. Sigh, yet another server that isn’t the one my legacy is on that has a guild where I would otherwise be interested in parking my poor unguilded Imps. (Never mind that y’all raid – or at least raided – and I… don’t.) Wonder if paid character transfers (I dare not hope that they will offer paid whole-legacy transfers) will be GTN’able – I can’t stomach paying $10-15 per character as a penalty for choosing the wrong server over a year ago, but I can honestly say that my current server is NOT contributing to my enjoyment of the game.

    In an unrelated story, this post prompted me to go read your “about” page which linked to your old WoW blog, whose name is unique enough that I’m pretty sure I heard you on a podcast once upon a time.

      • I have six characters – all of which are above level 15 with significant amounts of credits invested in various character legacy unlocks and all of which have at least one crewskill at 250+. There aren’t any I’m willing to leave behind, especially since my legacy won’t get from alts on the other server. To my knowledge, no MMO has ever offered the option to move all your alts for a single fee when they know they can milk you for $15+ per character. I will not pay $90 for this service.

        Now, if it’s GTN’able and I can hand someone a bunch of credits in exchange for them spending the $90 for me….

        • I’m hoping they have a “move the whole legacy” bundle, sort of like how they have per-character unlocks AND unlocks for the whole account (cargo bay, etc).

    • Indeed I was on a podcast exactly once. My dirty secret is that I almost never listen to podcasts because they take WAY longer than reading. I find it frustrating to get information at the speed of human speech.

      • I spend a lot of time driving, and I follow multiple MMO’s, so I listen to a fair number of podcasts. I can’t read at all in the car, so the speed of human speech is faster than nothing. I do tend to focus more on podcasts that are entertaining than podcasts that primarily report the news without commentary, since the news will be old by the time someone records and posts a show about it.

        Now videocasts, I don’t understand. If I’m sitting in front of my computer, why would I watch a show about a game when I could be playing the game instead?
