SWTOR Leveling Guide Preview

March 27th, 2015 by Hayden

Time is nearly up for the long awaited Star Wars: The Old Republic launch. Were all excited about it and preparing for the game by buying cd-keys and pre-ordering to get that color-stone. Customizing that lightsaber of ours to our color preference and that SWTOR model to be placed on that shelf in your room so your friends can admire.

SWTOR Guide

If you are some of the lucky ones, you’ve actually beta tested the game. This post is really to share you some details on some of the info I have read up on online and it seems like there aren’t really any guides promoted for the game yet. Came across one site called KillerGuides and checked out their SWTOR Strategy guide. As the game is not officially out yet, I haven’t placed my money yet even though they already have it selling. But to think that I would have a expert gamers perspective on the mmo SWTOR was pretty cool. A whole SWTOR leveling guide to myself. If any of you have seen any other guides out in the market, feel free to share here.

SWTOR Advanced Classes – Skill Tree and Specialization Guide

September 20th, 2011 by Lavi Lee

Below is an overview to Skill Tree and Specialization Guide. More detailed content and coverage of the topic could be found in this SWTOR Complete Guides Bundle.

The classes in Star Wars the Old Republic are further broken down into advanced classes. The availability of SWTOR advanced classes makes it possible for gamers to further customize their characters to suit their playstyle. At the moment, each class offers two advanced classes. Although the option lets gamers further specialize themselves, the advanced classes will have the same background story. Star Wars the Old Republic has kept it this way to ensure a well balanced game. The specializations will let players take on different roles when playing in parties and have different combat styles throughout.

Each SWTOR advanced class have their own set of abilities and skills. In other words, if you play a Jedi Guardian or a Jedi Sentinel, you will find that they offer very different abilities although they are both branches of the Jedi Knight class. The advanced classes will also, however have a set of what is called a shared skill set which basically marks them as Jedi Knights.

Before being able to choose an advanced class in Star Wars the Old Republic, you would need to first select the base class to play. How different is ‘different’ when it comes to the advanced classes? Here’s an example for you. The Jedi Guardian is, in more common terms, coined as the tank while the Jedi Sentinel is a damage dealer, aka DPS. Once you hit level 10, you would be able to make your SWTOR advanced class choice.

In practice, when choosing your advanced class, you are actually choosing the skill and allocating more points to certain skills. The use of skill trees in Star Wars the Old Republic is very much like most other MMORPGs. As you level up your character, you also gain skill points along the way. Adding these points to your skill tree enables you to further specialize your character. In SWTOR, there are a total of three skill trees you could spend points on simultaneously.

Here’s an overview of the SWTOR advanced classes:

Jedi Consular
The two specializations or so called advanced classes are Shadow and Sage. As a Jedi Shadow, you would be playing a mid-ranged damage dealer with tanking abilities and a long-ranged damage dealer with healing skills as a Jedi Sage.

Jedi Knight
The choices for the Jedi Knight is as a Jedi Guardian or a Jedi Sentinel. As a Guardian, you would be playing a tank with abilities to inspire your team. As a Jedi Sentinel, you would be playing as a primary damage dealer.

Smuggler
The two advanced classes for the SWTOR smuggler are the Gunslinger and the Scoundrel. Both classes uses the pistol, long ranged and short ranged respectively.

Trooper
The two options for the Trooper class are the Commando and Vanguard. Vanguards are known for their defensive abilities, thus, specializing as a tank. The Commando deal heave damage with their massive blasters.

Bounty Hunter
The first Bounty Hunter advanced class is the Powertech. As a Powertech you would be playing as a tank with mid-ranged damage dealing abilities. As a Bounty Hunter Mercenary, you would be a ranged-DPS with healing skills.

Imperial Agent
The two choices for Imperial Agents are Operative and Sniper. The first offers a combination of damage dealing and healing abilities. The second, the Operative, specializes as a ranged-DPS.

Sith Inquisitor
The advanced classes for the Sith Inquisitor are Sorcerer and Assassin. As a Sorcerer, you would be using force lightening to deal randed damage and heal allies. As an Assassin, you’re skills revolve around stealth and melee DPS.

Sith Warrior
Sith Warriors have two advanced classes to choose from as well which are the Marauder and the Juggernaut. The Juggernaut can take both defensive and offensive stance whereas the Marauder is a pure damage dealer.

SWTOR Over 200 Hours of Gameplay Per Class

June 29th, 2011 by Lavi Lee

Ready your lightsabers for the most amazing and still highly anticipated game of the year, Star Wars the Old Republic. Electronic Arts and Bioware are still silent as the the SWTOR release date but details to the game are slowly being revealed, quenching the game-hungry gamers thirst for this grand mmorpg.

SWTOR Beta participants has shot over the roof, the sheer numbers of applicants have blown this game away and numerous amounts of gamers finally have had hands on experience of the game at E3.

Frank Gibeau, EA Games head had a chat with Industrygamers recently to discuss events regarding their developments costs of the game SWTOR and the content that gamers will be enjoying soon enough. While the figures for development costs were not revealed by Gibeau, estimates of the costs have been massive. Gibeau states clearly that this investment in time and especially money has been worth it as the game contains over 200 hours of gameplay for each class. This 200 hours is only for one of the each six available classes and not including the crafting, raids and multiplayer. Be prepared to be immersed in this gigantic game.

Gibeau also confidently expects that Star Wars the Old Republic will do what no other mmorpg has done, and that is to ‘transport fans to another galaxy’, providing the best experience possible even though the game had been so expensive to produce.

With Origin being the online service EA has selected to deliver SWTOR and help on the launch of a new digital storefront, Gibeau tipped gamers off that there will be in the future special and exclusive content. Gibeau hopes that Origin has the potential of covering a wider and new range of audience which will help return some of the huge investments they have made in the game – mainly investments in the expansive class-system and amazing cinematics. Over thousands of hours worth of playtime, it seems like SWTOR will have what it takes to be the mmo of the next century.

SWTOR Release date: expected to released sometime next year only on the PC

SWTOR Sith Inquisitor Guide

February 2nd, 2011 by Marcus

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a new massively multiplayer online game, which allows its players to create a character, and play as part of the Star Wars galaxy. The game setting takes place 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader, during a shaky truce between the Republic and the Sith Empire. There are many classes for a player to choose from, including the Sith Inquisitor.

Nothing inspires the SWTOR Sith Inquisitor, or gives him such high motivation, as his search for power. Their strengths are built around cunning and treachery, and their only goal is more control. Very few Sith truly possess the strength and intelligence it takes to become a Sith Inquisitor, and those that are the most determined and likely to stab even their teachers in the back. The Sith Inquisitor has many powers to call upon, though the thing that keeps their enemies down, is their absolute control of the dark side of the Force.

The SWTOR Sith Inquisitor wears rich, dark, sophisticated robes that mark them for political control. Although their appearance may seem regal and harmless, the inquisitor is always sure to choose clothes that allow for movement and flexibility. That way, the Sith Inquistor is always ready to defend himself from an enemy, or even a scheming apprentice.

Whenever a SWTOR Sith Inquisitor fights, he leaves a field of destruction and carnage behind. The Sith Inquisitor’s expertise in wielding the force gives him incredible strength, and even allows them to pull from their own life force, and the life force of those around him. They can use that energy to make themselves stronger, fight back their enemies, or even return strength to wounded allies. The Sith Inquisitor also has amazing abilities with a light saber. They often wield two at once, using quick and lethal strikes to take their opponents down.

In order to gain the levels of power a Sith Inquisitor looks for, they must be able to handle more than Force lightning and their wits. The SWTOR Sith Inquisitor has to have the courage to explore even the most unknown parts of the Force, investigating mysteries that have been long forgotten, in order to draw new powers unto themselves. The Sith Inquisitor is willing to use the unlimited energy of the Force to make themselves into the architects of the future. Well there we go, a short SWTOR Sith Inquisitor guide. Stay tuned for more information about the class.

SWTOR Smuggler Guide

January 10th, 2011 by Marcus

Smuggler

In Star Wars: The Old Republic, it is 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader, and though the galaxy sits on a shaky truce between the Republic and the Sith, it is chaotic and lawlessness is common. Star Wars: The Old Republic is a new Massively Multiplayer Online game, where the player gets to choose their class, and become part of the Star Wars universe.

The game takes place thousands of years before Han Solo joined the rebels, but there is still a need for people with a loose moral code, to help carry contraband throughout the galaxy. One of the classes a player can pick from is a SWTOR Smuggler. As a Smuggler, your character will be called upon to haul cargo from one end of the galaxy to the other. You will have to break a lot of rules along the way, but you will be able to turn quite the profit, if you can handle the pressure.

Though Smugglers skirt the laws on both sides, most have chosen to ally themselves with the Republic, in the hope of staying out from under the thumb of a Sith empire. The Smuggler must be smart, cunning, and always ready to gamble, even on his own life. Although they don’t get the benefits of much armor or big guns, a SWTOR Smuggler is always dressed for action, and usually has one or two light and quick blasters at his side.

You can choose from one of two different specializations, once you have decided on a SWTOR Smuggler for your character. The Gunslinger is great at trick shots, and always happy to dive for cover and shoot out an enemy’s legs. He will do whatever he must to end a disagreement, and his dual blasters are the perfect tools to keep him ready to fight another day.

The second Smuggler specialization is the Scoundrel. The Scoundrel is not worried about etiquette or fighting clean. He always has a blaster for fighting, and a stealth belt to help him get out alive. He will do his best to stay invisible, and always shoots first.

The XS Stock Light is the Smuggler’s ship, and it has all of the comforts of the modern galaxy. Even with all the extra cargo space and secret compartments, it is still one of the quickest ships in the galaxy. Great for hiding the captain if you get boarded, or even fighting your way out of a tight spot.

There you go, a short guide to the Smuggler. For more detailed content and gaming strategies, check out SWTOR Smuggler Guide.

SWTOR Bounty Hunter Guide

December 16th, 2010 by Jack Matthews

Star Wars the Old Republic has recently released a new class, the Bounty Hunter. As a SWTOR Bounty Hunter you are trying to win entry into the great hunt. Keeping with the style of the iconic bounty hunters in the films your missions are personal, as well as for personal gain. SWTOR Bounty Hunter has incorporated the first ever fully voiced MMO. This means every NPC in the game has its very own unique recorded dialog. Every dialog with a NPC has different options and each choice is important as it changed how that particular mission will run.

SWTOR Bounty Hunter

The SWTOR Bounty hunter starts on Hutta, the world of the Hutts. The world looks distinctly old republic era star wars in a planet scarred and polluted by the Hutts. The bounty hunter is a ranged class starting with blasters, and rocket launchers, and an assortment of gadgets. The gadgets give the Bounty hunter more diversity by allowing the character to drop shields to hide behind or even stun you target instead of simply blasting it away.

SWTOR Bounty hunter is a very loose form of brotherhood, filled with distrust as even your employer may have a hidden agenda that will end up with your head on a platter. The class is focused around different missions that require bringing in or killing dangerous animals, or even more dangerous people. The bounty hunter is a morally ambiguous class, sometimes working for very evil people, but not necessarily evil themselves. This gives the Star Wars world a class that isn’t necessarily part of the dark side, or the light side, but a character set in grey.

The story that you create with your bounty hunter focuses around the hunt itself. Every mission that you accept flushes out how you as a bounty hunter choose to be. Are you going to choose a hunter with a strict sense of honor, or will you accept money from your bounty then lie to your employer about his death. This new class of character gives a perfect neutral character to choose between good or evil. Or even to choose none of the above and run with your own sense of morality, giving the player the ability to create their own personal Star Wars saga.

For more detailed information about Bounty Hunter, check out this SWTOR Bounty Hunter Guide.

SWTOR Sith Warrior Guide

December 5th, 2010 by admin

Even 3,500 years before Anakin Skywalker turned to the dark side of the Force, the Sith were strong, and wanted their empire to run the galaxy. Star Wars: The Old Republic is a new Massively Multiplayer Online game that takes place in that time period. The game gives you many options for character classes, including SWTOR Sith Warrior.

Sith Warriors

Given to the task of destroying the enemies of the Empire, the SWTOR Sith Warrior is an incredibly strong force of Darkness. The Warrior uses his anger, fear, and hatred to rid himself of weaknesses, and clings to the dark side in the hope of becoming indestructible. SWTOR Sith Warriors are the driving force behind the Sith armies, and they will push and push until the Empire holds the galaxy under its thumb.

Sith Warriors are natural leaders, capable of inspiring their allies and followers through fear. Though Warriors lean so heavily on the Force, they are also willing to wear heavy armor or even try biological augmentation. However, the SWTOR Sith Warrior relies on his lightsaber only slightly less than the Force. Some Sith warriors will even use two lightsabers at once, or use fighting styles that are not traditional to the Sith. They use strong, heavy swings to keep their enemies down, and wield their hatred to add power the Force, and scare and even kill them. If you’re planning on playing a Sith, would also be worth it to check what the Sith Inquisitor have in store for you.

The first specialization for the Warrior class is the Juggernaut. The juggernaut boasts unrivaled stamina on the battlefield, and uses his control of the Force to make himself nearly invincible. They rush into any battle, and take the brunt of the assault to make room for allies to do their part. The second specialization is the Marauder. A Marauder is incredibly aggressive, and wields two lightsabers at once. He has the talent of finding holes in an enemy’s defense, and is always moving to put them down for good.

When a Sith Warrior has need to travel the galaxy, the Fury is their ship. Boasting an advanced hyperdrive and sub-light speed capabilities, the Fury is the most capable ship in the Empire’s fleet. It is just as agile as the smaller fleet ships, but has the firepower of any large military ship.

SWTOR Jedi Knight Guide

November 26th, 2010 by Marcus

Jedi Knight

This article is a good starting point to learn about Jedi Knight. Check out this SWTOR Jedi Knight Guide for more advanced details, insights and gameplay tactics.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a new Massively Multiplayer Online Game, where the players will get an exciting gaming experience, and the chance to play a character in the Star Wars universe. There are many different classes available for play, including SWTOR Jedi Knight.

The game takes place around 3,500 years before Darth Vader makes his rise to power. The galaxy sits in a strenuous truce between the Sith and the Republic after decades of war, and as a SWTOR Jedi Knight it is your duty to help ensure that the evil Sith do not find a way to take control. The Jedi are a symbol of hope for the galaxy, and their skills are honed through years of training and dedication. Peace is the hope of every Jedi, and the galaxy looks to them to find it.

When playing a SWTOR Jedi Knight, your character will be able to wear the classic, traditional Jedi robes, as well as leather or even heavy armor. Of course, as a Jedi Knight, your character will wield a light saber to help bring down the Sith. Other than the Force, a Jedi’s light saber is the best tool he has to defend himself from a Sith attack, or even blaster fire.

There are two specializations to choose from, once you have decided to be a SWTOR Jedi Knight. Guardians have perfect concentration, and their control of the Force allows them perfectly smooth movements, even in heavy armor. This makes the guardian very hard to defeat, and they make for great leaders on the battlefield, as well as off. The second specialization choice is the Sentinel. The Jedi Sentinel is a beacon of focus and control, and are great for finding holes in an enemy’s defense. They are continually training and learning, and even have the ability to learn to use two light sabers at the same time.

When traveling around the galaxy, the Jedi Knight has a ship that was custom built for the Jedi Order, called the Defender. It is a Corellian ship, and it was chosen for the Jedi when the council decided that Republic military vehicles were not suitable for the Jedi’s special missions. The ship has areas for diplomatic meetings, a medical bay, and of course, a place for your Jedi to rest and meditate on the Force. The defender also has shields and twin blasters, for those emergency situations when a Jedi must fight. For Jedi fans who prefers using the force more than physical battle, get an overview of what the Jedi Consular class has in store for you.

SWTOR Imperial Agent Guide

October 7th, 2010 by Jack Matthews

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

Today, massive multiplayer online role playing games are one of the main stream gaming genres. Whether you love them, or hate them, MMORPGs have left an enduring stamp on gaming culture. The rogue who always has a quick line and a quicker knife, the scout who silently stalks his pray, the long arm specialist that strikes down targets before they even hear the shot, all of these represent the traits the exemplify members of a stealth class. Star Wars: The Old Republic has taken the stereotype of the stealth specialist and added it’s own unique twists. As with other faction based, player versus player games, each faction has it’s own version of the archetype. The Republic finds allies among the free spirited Smugglers. They are nothing more then a homage to Han Solo, abet a well deserved one to a fan favorite. The SWTOR Imperial Agent represents a more drastic and unique twist on the stealth specialist.

Imperial Agent

The contrast between the Smuggler and Imperial Agent highlights the differences between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Disparate and strongly independent forces coming together to face a common foe has long been a theme in the Star Wars universe. Imperial Agents are not lone guns and defiant rogues striking at their enemy from the shadows before retreating back to it. Instead they are the eyes, ears, and trigger fingers of the Empire. The shadows are not the sanctuary of a SWTOR Imperial Agent, they are instead their hunting ground.

As a SWTOR Imperial Agent, a player faces a choice as they advance in the game. An Agent may specialize as either an Operative or as a Sniper. An Imperial Sniper is feared for their ability to take down their target and then disappear only to do it again. A lone specialist, Snipers are capable of turning the tide of battle when acting in support of a strike team. Imperial Operatives are not specialists, but generalist. Regardless of what the missions requires, an Operative has the tools needed to complete it. Operatives, like the Republic Scoundrels, are also the only classes capable of healing their allies. In SWTOR, Imperial Agents play an important part in the grown power of the Sith Empire. As enemies or allies, the Imperial Agent is to be respected.

SWTOR Jedi Consular Guide

September 19th, 2010 by admin

Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class is one of the oldest Star War Old Republic classes around. They are highly respected all over the galaxy. Even the Sith Empire respects them to some degree as they have stolen Consular’s over to the Dark Side. Here is a brief history of how Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class came to being and what they stand for.

Jedi Consular

 

The Jedi Order has been around for 20,000 years. Consulars use wisdom in diplomacy and strength in combat by using the power of the Force. This brings balance and peace to the Galactic Republic. They are always constantly learning about themselves, learning vast knowledge of the galaxy, and the effects of the Force that puts it altogether.

Star Wars The Old Republic Jedi Consular Class cannot get rid of the enemies or the darkness until they do the same within themselves. Everyone has a dark side and they must never give into weakness or temptation. When giving orders, they must always check themselves for the right reasons and motives. Meaning they are not doing this for personal gain but only for the Galaxy.

Consulars mediate and train years on end to keep their minds sharp and channeling the power of the Force. They may discover secrets that were forgotten with the Jedi, or they may have to raise armies to beat back the darkness. They have to stay evenly balanced and in harmony within themselves at all times. They are sought after for guidance and advice from the Governors and Senators.

When times where more at peace, the Consulars protected the Jedi lore as keepers or were an ambassador in service to the Republic. But, as times got darker, Consulars heeded the call for help to face it and bring it down on the front lines of historic battles.

In combat, it goes way beyond mediation and meditation. They are very fluent and efficient in battle. They use light sabers along with the power of the Force and can destroy legions of droids and disable battles before they even begin.

If you’re looking for more than preliminary info, this SWTOR Jedi Consular Guide is recommended. The manual is also available as part of a SWTOR Complete Guides Bundle; further recommended for serious SWTOR gamers.
