I’ve revamped the hall of shame. Most of the images should display in an appropriate size, and you won’t have to click through if you don’t want to.
As I am once again playing and monitoring the blog, feel free to send horrible fashion my way.
So while I was on hiatus from SWTOR, I heard little birds telling me that I get to… reunite with my bestie, Malavai Quinn. Here’s the official blurb, as I am avoiding spoilers:
Prepare to fight alongside Former Sith Warrior Companion Malavai Quinn or former Republic Trooper Companion Elara Dorne!
But beware, many years have passed… and your decisions may put old friendships to the test!
Last I saw him, I was giving him a neck-tickle… with force choke.
The following conversation with a guildie occurred yesterday:
Me: I should prioritize murdering Quinn. That’s next on the agenda.
(Guildie]): lol. I feel sorry for Quinn, actually. he’s stuck between a rock and a wall
Me: Ooh that’s how I should kill him. Squish.
Clearly I’m not over it.
As you might recall, I got no credit for finishing Chapter 1 of KOTET and put in a CSR ticket. Well this was the response I got:

Thank you for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic.
No! That’s a bad bioware! Copious use of “unfortunately” does not compensate for failure to fix my issue!
It also drives me nuts when they say they’re “unable” to fix the issue. No, someone over there is able to fix the issue. They just don’t choose to allow the CSR personnel to do that and it isn’t worth the time to find the person who has the power to press the “skip to chapter 2” button.
As my toon is now level 70, I’m just going to start KOTET on another that actually needs to hit 70. If I’m going to redo the chapter, might as well be for a purpose.
Up soon: why command crates are bullshit.
First of all, leveling as an operative… well I thought it would suck since I’ve done that before, but Lethality is seriously fun. Would you like a bomb? Oh yes, here’s a nice green poison bomb. What’s that? Not enough poison? No problem, let me explode the general vicinity with more poison. BOMB BOMB BOMB. For story mode, there’s nothing sweeter.
Chapter 1 has a very sad ending. I finished up and happily logged off to do other things. When I got back to it, I was at the beginning of the fucking chapter. No medal for completing it. No “pick up where you left off maybe not quite done.” Nope, no credit whatsoever. I put in a ticket to customer service, and the clock is ticking. I’ll let you know when/if they answer.
Fortunately, my new guild (courtesy of old guild merger) was farming things and I ended up at level 70 via story mode raiding – I mean ops, totally ops – without having to repeat the chapter. Unfortunately for me, my triumphant return to raiding involved the Underlurker. There was much mockery at my expense. “I hate you guys” was my mantra for the night.
Boys and Girls, it does not pay to be lazy. I fully admit that I stalled out on summarizing chapters around 14ish. Now shit is happening and I don’t remember why. Shame on me.
The real life job that has been bullshit on my gaming schedule has receded to normal hours. I’m patched up and ready to go.
I have no fucking idea what I’m doing.
I read the Dulfy guides, although it’s like drinking information from the space-fire-hose. It was far easier to make a list of all the outfits I want. I’m totally on top of that.
I started with the newest chapter of KOTET, and it took way too long to even get to that point. First, my level 65 operative never did KOTFE (just leveled with raids and stuff) so I had no idea how to start KOTET. After much swearing, Mr. Google was kind enough to show me the way.
But then I see triangles all over my ship. Why? Oh right, I never finished the conversations with my idiots. I should probably do that before they are lost forever…
Those guys are so boring. I fondly remember the first run through of this game where I could not bribe my idiots fast enough because I wanted to see what they had to say. Now I don’t care what Lokin is doing. He could be experimenting on space puppies, whatever, just don’t bother me with it.
They’re all done yammering now. Onward to Chapter 1!
Apparently we’re getting a new op. I’m happy. No, seriously.
I mean, it’s not enough by any stretch, but compared to nothing, one op is better than zero.
In the real-life background, work is kicking my ass, so I haven’t been online. Grown up jobs are bullshit for gaming time. My chances of doing the op when it’s first released are slim. Thankfully, people will still be running it through the summer since not all the bosses are releasing at once. Yes! BW being slow actually works with my schedule, so thanks!
But I’d best get my shit together and level up and gear up… well and choose a healing main… Like I said, grown up jobs are bullshit on my gaming schedule.
I took a break from SWTOR suddenly and in a huff of what Little Jedi calls a “baby tantrum” over the lack of raids. I didn’t post about this because nobody wants to read about a baby tantrum.
A few nights ago, I dreamed about SWTOR twice. Since, of course, my spending is controlled by my subconscious, I resubbed immediately. I’m firmly in the casual camp right now, since I have no time for raiding (that isn’t new anyway, I mean geesh!!).
And, now that KOTET is out, I finally finished KOTFE. But not before catching up my wardrobe collection to make up for lost time and missed cartel packs. Because DUH.
Fair warning: cover those underboobs or face my renewed wrath.
Sigh, why do I even bother. Nobody remembers Kramer versus Kramer. I’m olde.
Anyhoo, standard disclaimer:
I made an executive decision to quit playing chapters for a while and then do a few back-to-back. Story flows better that way! So finally, I got around to meeting up with Vette (yay) and Gault (eew).
Where do I start with Gault? I seem to remember him wanting to swindle peasants in the BH story and I told him to stuff it. This was back when we had affection and I took a huge hit, like the -300 of shame. Totally worth it.
I loved Vette, always, but back in the day, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, Vette was not a healer and did not accompany me in my story. So sad.
I strongly object to this chapter because there is no Andronikos. Seriously, he’s a space pirate. This is totally his thing.
