Highlighted Guild

  • The Imperial Guard – Sith Empire guild

This week we take a look at a guild that got their roots from another Star Wars MMO, Star Wars Galaxies.

They have maintained this vision through a few key elements, recruit the person not the class/role, scheduled events – some with a “dash” of role-play for flavor, but as we will find out it really boils down to respect. Respect for guildmates, other players and game developers. That is only a small glimpse into what makes up The Imperial Guard.

  • Ad Infinitum – Sith Empire Guild

Well, I offer you the guild Ad Infinitum. After getting to know them and their zeal for “killing bosses” they are definitely hardcore.

We learn from the guild officers on what it takes to be hardcore after the Jump… Continue reading »

Photo-Receptor Focus on:  Eternity Vault: My First TOR Ops

by Maer

A little over a week ago I had my first SWTOR raid experience.  It took me awhile to get to level 50, but I finally made it and geared up my Sorc for operations.  I was excited to see how raiding in TOR would compare to other games (which shall remain nameless) that I used to play.

More after the jump…

  • Nightmare Asylum – Sith Empire

Time for another Guild Checkpoint, this week we look in on a guild that is all about hardcore raiding. Whether you consider hardcore raiding by working for the top gear or being server/world first at bosses or entire Operations, or raiding almost every day of the week…Nightmare Asylum prides itself in doing them all.

Have you wanted to be a part of a top-tier raiding guild or want to know what it takes to get to that level? Well sit back and get ready for the Jump, as we get to know this week’s guild and how to they got to become hardcore raiders.
