SWTOR Starship Guide

October 28th, 2011 by Hayden

Here’s an overview of SWTOR Starship. For more information and gameplay recommendations, check out this SWTOR Guide.

In the vast galaxy, the means for traveling is via starships. These starships are thus nothing new and have been used for traveling in hyperspace for millennias. Over time, the technology supporting these ships continue to advance and evolve, offering captains of the ships and its occupants with more and more features. This post, guides you with information about all the six SWTOR starships.

For ships that travel outside the secure hyperlanes, the defense and weapon technology used must be advanced enough to ensure secure traveling. During the war, many new and upgraded versions of starships were designed by the engineers of the Galactic Republic. Like all sorts of high-tech weaponry, some of the most advanced starships did end up in the black market and to the hands of the Sith Empire’s Bounty Hunters.

The currently known starships in SWTOR are the D5-Mantis, Fury, BT-Thunderclap, Phantom, XS Freighter and the Defender. The best word to describe the SWTOR D5-Mantis starship is the word ‘fight’. The starship has independent power supplies and is capable to significantly pack itself into carrier ships. The SWTOR D5-Mantis is a rather rare ship. Due to the cost of building these starships, the number of Mantis starships flying in the galaxy is rare.

SWTOR Defender Ship

Then there’s the Star Wars the Old Republic Fury. This starship features a hyperdrive and is know to be the most versatile ship of the Imperial fleet. The Fury is most popular among the Sith Lords. The BT-7 Thunderclap is an assault starship. It’s designed for fast deployment which is advantageous during combat situations. The ship has one of the best armor plating and heavy laser cannons.

The X-70B Phantom is developed from years of research and is one of the known ships of the Imperial Navy. The XS Freighter is known to be one of the fastest ships in space. The ship is suitable for cargo given that it has secret compartments to keep important shipment hidden. Last but not least is the Defender. This starship was developed during the Great War specifically for the Jedi Order. The ship has been built to support the Jedi’s specialized mission as oppose to general military power.

SWTOR Companions – A Quick Guide

October 15th, 2011 by Marcus

SWTOR Bowdaar Chewbacca

Here’s an introductory guide to SWTOR Companions, for more in-dept information and gaming insights, check out this SWTOR Guide.

Every hero comes with a side-kick. The same goes for Star Wars. If you’re familiar with the movie, especially the older series such as ‘Return of the Jedi’ and the ‘Empire Strikes Back’, you’ll notice that Han frequently appears with Chewie while Luke had R2-D2 with him during his training. In Star Wars the Old Republic (SWTOR), the concept of companion prevails. In the game, companions are there to support and enhance the character gamers choose to play.

Companions themselves will have character and ideals in SWTOR, making the game very close to reality. For instance, some companion characters would join your cause just like that, while others are in it for the benefits or for a bit of adventure. The wide variety of available companions also makes it much more interesting and lively. From highly intelligent AIs, weird looking aliens, an SWTOR companion can go as far as being a beautiful princess.

Your interaction with your SWTOR companion also effects how the storyline develops. For example, your companion might point out destinations of interest. Which you choose to travel to and why will run its course in your character’s story. The catch with companions is that some may develop from just being friends into enemies or even your significant other.

In SWTOR, one character can have more than one companion. These companions are what

makes your character more powerful and unique. If you enjoy fiddling around with gears and equipping up your character, then good news! Companions can be equipped with a wide range of gear as well. You, along with your companions are viewed as a team. As your team grows, the game features new options as well as new team strategies given the more attributes, skills and characters to support each other. When doing certain quests, you’ll have a choice of which SWTOR companion to bring along. The same goes for everything else you do in the vast SWTOR universe.

Some of the known Star Wars the Old Republic companions are the Bowdaar, Tanno Vik, T7-O1, Mako, Kaliyo Djannis, Vette and Khem Val.
