At least there’s SWTOR 2.0?
The first paid TOR expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, will go live next week on April 14. My husband got early access because he pre-ordered, so he’s been giving me info today about the new stuff.
The good: a new planet, and a raised level cap of 55. Also, fun achievements: “Hoth Wampa Targeter” — Defeated 25 wampas roaming the snowy plains of Hoth. “More Than a Mercenary” — Reached 10000 affections with Corso Riggs. And last but not least, they connected ALL the speeder terminals on Dromund Kaas!
The bad: THEY RESET ALL MY SKILL POINNNNNTTTTSSSSSSS.
I haven’t played my lvl 50 bounty hunter Sind’onin in about 6 months, and now I’m going to have to reconstruct her skill tree from memory. DAMN THEM.
Also, they messed with some of the mercenary talents, I think to make them better at PVP. They got rid of Shoulder Slam, which I actually liked. 😦 This irritates me because, as I have said before, I like to pretend that this is not actually an MMO, so I am not very sympathetic to having to change my play style just because PVP players like to whine about mercs.
But I’ll probably drop the $10 for the expansion anyways. 😉
