Well, chasing after Thanatan has been taking a really, really long time.
I got to visit Harkun again but for some reason fraps didn’t want to save my screenshots. He’s extra super polite to me these days, though. I still find him spicey. I mean really he’s basically like the baby sitter of the incompetent and totally racist to anyone not human but yeah. This game really has great quests.
So! for an older game, it can be quite pretty. I spent so long looking for an outfit the game logged me out. Apparently actively looking through the Galactic Market will do that? Anyway I played with some dyes but I figured wearing a white/grey would be pretty ironic and left it like that.
And prior to that, did some questing with Stout and had a laugh at getting the side-eye here. I swear he’s saying “kiss-ass!” to whatever chat option I had selected.
I started playing this game, and, I’m not even sure why. I think it started by looking up videos of The Last Jedi reviews because I thought the movie was so bad in so many ways, and started thinking about a costume for this Halloween. Then I started looking up lady Sith and somehow decided to try it out.
Well I’m pretty hooked, so far the story is really good. I’m a sith inquisitor but I don’t play all that terribly evil. Someone steals my stuff, you’re going to get a beat down. You mouth off to me, lightning in the face. But, you take a beat down and ask that I save your people, and, I’ll give mercy.
I wish I had more screenshots but hitting print screen in game does absolutely nothing, as I found out.
Anyway the game really pulled me in with a character named Harkun who kept calling me slave “how dare you!!” and being a snarky jerk. I liked him though and before I knew it, I was level 36. I went ahead and subscribed as well, since you are limited on what you can do as a free player.
Back during MoP, gear out in the world got extremely unbalanced. The best pvp gear level was 550, but raiders could get to 580ish. That meant they could destroy pvpers very quickly, we’re talking 3 globals. I personally recall dying to a raid tier shadow priest on my resto druid in the span of a Silence, or getting destroyed with a penance or two by a disc priest on my 550 hunter.
Timeless Isle was a real problem on pvp servers in particular, because raiders were gods and could kill pvpers like it was nothing. I didn’t ever want to see THAT again.
But, here we are. I’m around 935 ilevel on my mage and priest, but if I run into say, a warlock who is 960ish, they can melt me and NOTHING I can do will save me, I can’t even outheal the damage. On top of that, you can have someone hit you even at the same item level or close, and take you to 20% health before you know it. It’s pretty bad.
Though I will say out in Tol Barad, with the exception of that raiding warlock, I’ve still been doing ok.
But, it makes me want to raid just to keep up, it’s frustrating. It’s totally not fair for me to do that, or have a raider do that either but here we are, again.
