Any Star Wars fan knows that there is nothing cooler than the ability to wield the laser sword known as lightsaber, since wielding a SWTOR lightsaber symbolize a user’s control over the force. Everyone dreams of a chance to have their very own lightsaber and if you can’t have it in real life, having one (or several) in game might suffice.
In SWTOR, you can choose to be either a Jedi or a Sith in order to gain access to the ability to wield a lightsaber. There is a slight difference in appearance between a Jedi lightsaber and a Sith lightsaber. A Jedi lightsaber would come in either green or blue due to the crystal called Adegan, also known as Ilum crystals which the Jedi uses to craft the lightsaber and can be found only in the Crystal cave on Ilum. In contrast, a Sith lightsaber emits red or sometimes purple plasma because of the synthetic crystal within the hilt.
SWTOR Lightsaber crafting will be available though specific details of how it will turn out have not been revealed yet. However there is a video showing a Jedi constructing a lightsaber in a cave followed by a scene where the Jedi is then attacked by a monster.
Group dungeons are common in most MMORPGs, in SWTOR, group dungeons are referred to flashpoints. So what does flashpoint gameplay entail? Similarly to dungeon attempts in other games, in SWTOR, you would take on flashpoints together with a group. SWTOR flashpoints are repeatable and involves the completion of quest to gain rewards.
Flashpoints in the game would come in two types, those that are specific to each faction (the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic) and those that both factions could attempt. How is SWTOR flashpoint gameplay different? Gamers will be able to control how the story goes in SWTOR flashpoints. Also, depending on how players make their choice, the rewards would differ as well. With that gamer driven feature, the SWTOR gameplay of flashpoints have good replay value.
Single player missions are not called flashpoints and considered another type of SWTOR gameplay. In generic terms, single player quests are called missions in Star Wars the Old Republic. Players who enjoys WoW-type gameplay would enjoy SWTOR flashpoints given that they are in fact repeatable, short to complete and specifies certain group sizes.
