Photo-Receptor Focus on: SWTOR Favorites
There’s always going to be someone who has something negative to say about any game. There are also going to be those who will defend a game till its dying day. This week, I’d like to focus on the things that are great about SWTOR. Just as a reminder, as it were, to take a look at what I still love about the game.
More after the jump…
The graphics were and are stunning and some of the best I’ve seen. Lines are crisp, details are sharp and the graphics are as impressive today as they were when I first started playing.
The architectural and planet designs remain one of my favorites. There is no lack of color in the individual planet designs. The architecture, planetary vistas and dynamic colors were stunning when I first started playing. They remain stunning today and I still appreciate them.
The storylines remain one of SWTOR’s strengths. I’ve still only completed my main storyline, but I’m working slowly, but surely, on my alts’ storylines. Now that summer’s here, I’ll be able to devote more time to leveling those alts.
I have my spaceship all decked out with every high level purple mod I can get my hands on. I still run space missions every now and then. I just need to leave time in between, so I don’t get too burned out. I never did make it all the way to the end yet, but I may do that one of these days.
As to gathering, I’m having more fun on my low level Bounty Hunter than I did on my Sorc. That could be because I went with all gathering on the Bounty Hunter and I only had archaeology on my Sorc. But I’m definitely enjoying the gathering on the Bounty Hunter more. I love seeing all those stars on my mini map in one small area.
Mostly, I enjoy the social aspect of playing with friends. Even though many of my friends are leaving the game, there are still enough left that I have lots of company. At least most of the time. I’m still raiding and, of course, that’s always fun. Grouping up for dailies, flashpoints and special events is always entertaining.
Thank heavens my guild has special events. I can’t imagine playing this game without the benefit of a large guild. A bit ironic when you remember that Bioware didn’t have a lot of love for large guilds in the beginning. I’d like to hear from those in small guilds. What is your opinion and what sorts of activities do you do, if any?
Recently, we’ve been working on the Aratech Coral speeder. I’ve got all of the regular bosses down and now only have the Nightmare Pilgrim to finish. Then, new speeder, here I come.
I still need to finish my datacron achievements. I have about half of them at this point. My guild also does an event around getting these and I’m looking forward to joining that.
As we wait for new content to appear, I can still find things to do and entertain myself. However, I really would like a bit more variety.
That’s my two credits. What’s yours?
