Default Star Wars: The Told Republic

Not gonna lie, I was very skeptical of this game. However, a good friend of mine got into the beta and from what he tells me, it's going to be amazing. I will most likely pick it up and play it until GW2 comes out, unless it's even more amazing than it looks, in which case I'll continue playing it.

So the point of this thread? Discuss SWTOR gameplay, lore, your misgivings about the game, hopes, whatever.

Also, ask questions and I'll pass them on to my friend and get you some answers.

Sith or Jedi? It's the basic question.
I myself will most likely be Jedi.

Sith Warrior, then branching into Juggernaut. Or Marauder. Sith Warrior, at any rate. Also, I'm going with Sith Pureblood because they look like man'ari eredar in the face.

I am interested in playing a trooper if I get it but still I don't really know.

They don't have an appearance tab right? That disappoints me.

I'm thinking of going pureblood inquisitor.

Because sometimes it just feels good to be evil.

Apparently your gear's appearance adjusts based on your faction, alignment, and advanced class.

I have to be moral and good in real life. I usually play evil characters when given the choice.

I still would much rather have control over it, some armor that I have seen looks awesome others not as much.

From what I can gather, it seems to be more oriented toward story-telling than gameplay.

Which is fine by me.

Also: SITH ALL THE WAY

I KNOW THAT I PLAY ALLIANCE, SHUT UP.

I'll play both sides, but Jedi man, who the Hell doesn't want to be a Jedi?

Ruinshin.

Also, funny story. Tor is doing a huge media dump starting tomorrow and lasting until next week.

Well played.

Ohohoho, they're clever people, Bioware.

I wonder if I can multi-task...

I giggled when I read 'huge... dump'. I can be rather immature sometimes.

So I finally got into the beta after deciding I didn't want to buy the game (based on feedback from a friend who's in the beta).


I guess this is good, the game launches in a month and one of the chief reasons I didn't want to get the game was I'd afraid I'd blow through all the meaningful content in a month, so this is a win:win, I get to play the game for free and see the stuff I'm actually interested in.

I got my invitation earlier too. Now I just have to wait a bloody day for my arthritic internet connection to actually download everything.

Does your play session start on the 11th? Let me know your character name (I'm probably going to make an Inquisitor, either cyborg or pureblood, torn between the two) and we'll play together.
