So… yeah, it’s three years later and I’ve just rebooted my olde pc to play with Little Jedi1. Little Jedi is now 12 and evil AF. She has a stealth operative and murders all the things. And now she’s got the husband and me back into it.
So right after I (1) update the website2, (2) purchase a dongle3, and (3) do years of updates on my creaky old PC, I’ll be ready to murder right along with her. Especially Quinn. Oh wait, I already murdered him. DO-OVER!
Well, I got it and it was a huge disappointment! Fair warning to all of you.
First, it clips with everything. Any sort of collar, any tiny shoulder embellishment, any thick jacket, clip! Any head turning… clip!
Second, it often does weird shit with healing, stealthing, or combat animations. And, well, that’s kind of what I do.
So I got the Lana hair as soon as it came out. It may have weird color fade on top, and I was about to overlook it and move on with my life – except I totally made it work for me! Really light blue hair turns to white-with-blue-tips which looks totally intentional.
Fun Fact: the Nar Shaddaa gambling event is a great way to come upon terrible fashion.
“Mom! Mom!” shrieks Little Jedi. “That lady is wearing the most ridiculous outfit! I mean, it doesn’t even cover her organs! She’s gonna get STABBED!!”
Me: “While I agree that this outfit is stupid, I only take pictures of the really egregious examples, or the Hall of Shame would fill up too quickly. That one isn’t actually that bad. There are way worse outfits out there.”
Me: “Like that guy…”
LJ: “Oh my god.”
Me: “Or those idiots – damn they’re hiding behind a machine.”
LJ: “What are they even doing? What kind of dumb name is that?”
LJ: “Come over here! Quick! Take a picture of this moron!”
Oh you’re back, good. Now you can see how they nerfed sorc healers into the ground.
But don’t worry. They assure us that they are going to nerf all the other healers into the ground too.
We say the target HPS instead of their target HPS because all three healers have the same target HPS. In future balance patches, the other healers can expect to see changes to their healing capabilities as well to ensure they are in line with the target.
Joy. We’re all getting nerfed. You know what that means…
DPS, step your shit up! We will no longer be able to compensate for standing in bad, missed interrupts, or failure to self-cleanse.
Little Jedi has started a bounty hunter. Watch out, world.
Unlike previous attempts to play, LJ now has reading skills and coordination sufficient to stay on quest task without our assistance. I am a firm proponent that she MUST level up herself. She will not learn anything if we drag her around. She won’t learn her abilities, she won’t learn how to navigate a map – she’ll get to 50 and be totally useless. No child of mine will do that.
I am quite enjoying the commentary I am hearing as she goes along. She’s very excited to get Mako, and everything is going well until…
