Rise of the Hutt Cartel

Rise of the Hutt CartelWell, Star Wars fans sure haven’t had a lot to celebrate recently, what with The Clone Wars apparently ending and LucasArts being shutdown.

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!


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. 😉
