HoloNet Links #44

Have you seen this Jedi Master?

The Jedi Master was last spotted prior to Patch 1.2 and Rakghoul Outbreak. This reporter went in search and started at the Jedi Temple on Tython. After surveying the on-going struggle with the Flesh Raiders, I made my way to the Jedi Temple. Everyone seemed to be going about their business as usual. I was told to meet the very Jedi Master, Master Muheeda, I was seeking to receive training. Upon reaching the upper level of the temple and making my way to the Holocron Library, I saw Master Muheeda…or was it?

More on the Jedi Master Mystery, UI feedback wanted & much more after the Jump…

 

 

Immediately the difference was quite clear…Master Muheeda had grown hair, in fact gray hair, his eyes were a different color and he now had facial hair…wait a minute he was not even a Rodian!!!

 

I questioned the Master about his specie change. He would only shake his head. As any good reporter, I had to find out the truth…so I continued to question this so-called Master Muheeda.

 

 

This must have struck a nerve, ah ha now we will get answers…or in this case he poised himself to attack a member of the press, namely me! Luckily for him I had another meeting to conduct back on Coruscant with a member of the Galactic Senate.

 

The case still remains a mystery. If you have any information on the whereabouts of the “real” Master Muheeda, or have noticed any other missing people in the SWTOR Universe, please contact me in the comment section below.

  • Republic Trooper article on Combat Medic Changes

There have been many changes since Patch 1.2 has been released. Many of us, probably have not read all the patch notes as in-depth as we should. One area that is sometimes overlooked is class updates, especially if it is unclear or maybe not your class. This past week Mike Kern, from RepublicTrooper.com, wrote a great article about the changes to the Advance Trooper Class – Commando, specifically dealing with healing/combat medic changes. Mike does a great job of looking at each of the changes and breaks down exactly how it will impact the Commandos out there playing the role of healer.  Here is a quote from Mike.

“This patch changed my Medic in one very fundamental way. I found myself DPSing a whole lot less and concentrating on healing a whole lot more. It has taken me away from a “dual class” to a more focused class. I have to carefully consider my healing rotation and throw out my damaging abilities on the rare occasions I can spare the Ammo.”

If you want to read more of his in-depth article and more of his conclusions head over to RepublicTrooper.com and read his article.

 

  • SWTOR video

Guns & Roses’ song Civil War is used in this week’s video selection. Highlighted in the video, by Boshodoman, are the many conflicts throughout the game starting with Ord Mantell. It does a great job of being an entertaining music video with in-game footage, but also brings home the meaning of the loss that goes with any war or conflict. Now, I am not about to make a political statement, nor do I think that was the full intent of the video. That said it does cause a person to think about it a moment, just like the game has you thinking about the tough choices you make in the game. I am all about having fun and enjoying things for the sake of enjoyment, but it never hurts to think a bit about what each of our choices lead to both in-game and in everyday life. Okay, now without any further “soapbox” debate.

 

That is it for this week’s HoloNet Links. Is there a particular link, story, video, or topic related to SWTOR you would like us to highlight? Maybe you or someone you know deserves to be highlighted in our SWTOR Community Spotlight if so please email us at corellianrun@gmail.com or you can leave your links and suggestions in the comments below, or in the Facebook group.

I want to thank everyone for their well wishes for our wheelchair rugby at Nationals! This is a great community…May the Force be with you all! See you all next week.
