  • WOOK Guild – Galactic Republic

Many Star Wars fans love the Wookiees. From first seeing Chewbacca, the co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon, to being able to share adventures with the lovable, strong, loyal “furballs” in various Star Wars games, fans have felt a strong connection with this species. Today’s guild, WOOK, first started in another MMO with a direct connection to the Wookiees. While they may not be able to play as the specie their guild takes their name from, they still have the same strong friendships and determination to a “complete” guild in SWTOR.

We learn more about WOOK & their thoughts on SWTOR after the Jump…

News…News…News! After the holiday period, it seems things are getting back in full-swing. BioWare gave the community what it had been starving for, news. We have news about what we will see in Patch 1.7, BioWare’s solution to gear changes on the cartel Market and even the latest Companion 101 blog.

After researching the guild more, I also discovered they use their guild status to also pursue helping others in philanthropic ways. We will find out more in today’s Community Checkpoint as we meet the guild, The Legacy of The Ancients.

HoloNet Links #79

This week we received our first patch of 2013. Along with fixes the patch included some new items on the Cartel Market. Now not all the changes were well received, especially those making changes to a couple existing armor, the Phantom and Spymasters gear sets, which were purchased through the Cartel Market. As a result many players voiced their displeasure on the forums. How would BioWare respond to these players?

BioWare’s response, Larry Everett’s 5 wishes for SWTOR & more after the Jump…

  • TORVerse podcast

torverspodartThis week on Community Checkpoint we meet the hosts of the TORVerse podcast, Phil and Jake. Not only are these two avid Star Wars fans and SWTOR players, these two also happen to be father and son. I came across this podcast several weeks ago and love the dynamic between the two, not just as father and son, but as two gamers sharing their opinions about this game. We will get a chance to learn more about how they got started in Star Wars: The Old Republic and how it led to them developing the TORVerse podcast.

Get ready to meet Phil & Jake after we make the Jump…
