OP  9/04/13 3:51:12 AM#1

The game looks very good with healthy population and very improved graphics

 

I currently play a stealthy imperial agent  and although I like the class I die a lot while questing

 

Witch class has the best story ?

 

And witch class has the easiest way while questing?

 

Cheers

I actually ended up doing the same thing... I'm liking the game for the story so far... I'm only at level 14-15 with my Sith Assassin, but I'll keep at it. Played a Jedi Counsellor pretty much all the way through when it still was a sub game. And that story wasn't really all that good, probably one of the weaker ones in it...

The Sith Sorc/Assassin story is better, at least so far.

I liked the Agent story start when I tried it during the Beta before release.

I'm a sucker for a good story in games. The gameplay is secondary in my books... I would just like the stories to be less linear, as they are, but as this is a MMO there is not much that can be done about it. Would require some sort of a organic questing system from the game, for not it to be the "go kill these" or fedex quests...

But it would be cool to see that first one quest giver gives a quest to go kill and collect some stuff, then the next quest he'd give is the fedex to take the items to a shop and the shop keeper would then give the quest to bring back the money back to the original quest giver. And this would be dynamic. Sort of like the people would have needs and they could be met and not just  give out the same quest over and over again without any real change in the game. Sort of if one mob population would get too big, it would generate the quest to take them down and after that someone else would fill the void and this would evolve the entire world organically based on player actions.

Of course this would require a dynamic quest system that could and would result in obsolete quests from time to time. But this could be fine, if this was made clear to the people who play... There's always something to do.

I'm rambling on... I should stop. I'm enjoying SWTOR again, which is nice. Plenty of them stories yet to be seen by me, so this might end up being a keeper game for quite some time in the future as well. When feeling like another star warsy story to run through.

Best story: Imperial agent (Bourne Identity kind of story with possible different endings), followed by Jedi Knight (if there was KOTOR3, that would be the main story line).

Easiest class for questing: Sith Assassin or Jedi Shadow, with tank spec. Unkillable stealth characters with above average DPS (at least when I was playing them at launch). Difficulty of other classes for questing depends on when do you get your healing companion.

Hope this helps.

Where is the improved graphics? It looks the same as it did shortly after launch when they enabled higher res textures. I went back a few days ago after a few months break and the game is still as bleak as it was then.

Well, you can't subsribe and already have 1000 posts written. The OP's question is also positive, so why would you call that post fishy? :) You kind of sound paranoid lol.

OP  9/04/13 5:48:34 AM#10

Listen I just wanted to ignite a healthy conversation about the game It self ( gameplay)

 

The only threads I can find here is what bioware does wrong etc.

 

I don't care If you consider the game a success or you want this and the other thing added

 

I am looking for information from more experienced players on game play issues

 

I already made my mind to play my Twilek Jedi knight , what  professions should I select

 

Is the crystal profession worth the trouble ?

 

I made him dual wield light saber

 

Should I go for light side alingment or dark?

In most MMOs, taking more gathering professions means having more money. Same goes for SWTOR. Crafting professions usually don't pay off, unless you have the best of the best recipes, usually obtained through high level content (raids).

 Is the crystal profession worth the trouble ?

See above.

 I made him dual wield light saber

Jedi sentinel is a late bloomer and very hard class to master and play effectively (lots of buttons in a rotation), although very rewarding later in a game. On top of that, Jedi Knights get their healer very late in game. You're in for a rough ride.

 Should I go for light side alingment or dark?

  Whichever you prefer. It doesn't influence your story, however, chosing dark side jedi might feel incoherent with the overall  Jedi Knight story.

They where implemented a few weeks back , using similar tech to what some people use in the movie business. The tech is also built into the game engine itself and thus doesn't slow down the game at all. It's basically colour lighting and they took and adjusted 600 places within the game and it looks stunning. Some people though hated it and worked out a way how to turn it off.

To the OP I loved my Imperial sniper agent story and leveling curve. Otherwise playing a DPS vanguard was very cool , even though I then turned him into a tank at level 54 , best to DPS until end-game I thought.

Cheers,

The game can be tried without spending a dime. So you don't have to buy something. This all sounds too paranoid lol. Or maybe you think I am paid too :p

The game can be tried, yet not experienced,   Without spending a dime.

 

If someone wants a great game, this model EA has implemented is not very good.  Too many restrictions.  Everything walled off.  Barebones is how I would classify it for a new player.

 

EA should have just given the whole game away for free, with a cash-shop.  That would make this game popular.

 

Limiting credits (currency), and making people pay to wear "epic" gear is back-ass backwards.  Limiting how much they can do, like Flashpoints (dungeons) is also stupid.

 

EA could have done so much right with SWTOR, but they just wanted $$ ... on a F2P model .. disgusting!

I recently got back into this because I wanted some single player mmo action. Returning to the game first time since 2 months after launch I got to see all the awful F2P limits. It's like they actually spent development time creating ways to punish you for not paying. I'm not one to shy away from paying for subscriptions as I current have 3 active ones, but this was downright shameful. 1 profession allowed unless you're subbed? Why even have professions at all? 1 hotbar? WTF?

I bought CE the first day of pre-order and I don't even get the "preferred" account (just like silver on SOE games)

When someone completes the stories though they will know the meaning of hate.  Why would someone do this as F2P?  They are gimped on xp.. they can't acquire credits more than a set (low) threshhold.  They can't wear competitive gear.  They can't do much of anything MMORPG style - maybe old raids, with limited dungeon groups (where loot is possible). 

 

The whole system is MEH.

 

Class stories are great, but how many of those dwindling free players actually completed their story?  Server pop says not many.  2 million new accounts, SWTOR is financially successful lumped with other games....

 

I love how EA took the whole players want free-roam space poll seriously, then give us instanced shit.  I'm a bit bitter, but I'm a SW fan, so ..

The game can be tried, yet not experienced,   Without spending a dime.   If someone wants a great game, this model EA has implemented is not very good.  Too many restrictions.  Everything walled off.  Barebones is how I would classify it for a new player.   EA should have just given the whole game away for free, with a cash-shop.  That would make this game popular.   Limiting credits (currency), and making people pay to wear "epic" gear is back-ass backwards.  Limiting how much they can do, like Flashpoints (dungeons) is also stupid.   EA could have done so much right with SWTOR, but they just wanted $$ ... on a F2P model .. disgusting!
Come on, the worth while parts of the game are completely free. The class stories.


Yes, the "single player" aspect of the game. Could've been KOTOR 3 instead.

It's like they actually spent development time creating ways to punish you for not paying. I'm not one to shy away from paying for subscriptions as I current have 3 active ones, but this was downright shameful. 1 profession allowed unless you're subbed? Why even have professions at all? 1 hotbar? WTF?

I bought CE the first day of pre-order and I don't even get the "preferred" account (just like silver on SOE games)

 



You're kidding, you didn't get preferred status??? They originally were going to make us pay for extra hotbars but decided to allow us to use 4-6 hotbars as preferred, but the rest you have to shell cash out for (hide helmet, show title, 2nd and higher tier pvp gear, blahblahblah). I still have about 10Kish cartel coins waiting for me but they want me to sub to redeem it all... ha not happening.
