My System Specs

Default Star Wars: The Old Republic

So there are a variety of threads about SWTOR (pre order, beta, guilds) etc, but no general thread.

Seeing as to how pre-access is up and running, I thought'd I'd make a thread for the actual game lol. Mods, if this is not acceptable, please lock/compile.

Anyways, spent the first hour or so getting my toons set up, made one of each class for each side. Totally digging the Imperial Agent, but I'm also really enjoying Consular/Knight so I'm really torn. Probably spent the most time on Knight though, since that is what I played in Beta.

Anyways post your stories/impressions whatever here and enjoy!

Still waiting to get my official email for my pre-order, though I played the Inquisitor and the Bounty Hunter in the two times I was in the beta and well, I seemed to enjoy the Inquisitor a lot better. Probably has to do with the heat that the Bounty Hunter uses vs well the kinda mana pool that the force is for the Inquisitor (even though I'll be playing him as an Assassin). Fiance is on the fence between the Imperial Agent (probably not sniper as she doesn't like how stationary they are) or an Inquisitor Sorc.

I did get into beta twice I think but I really limited my play. Didn't want to ruin it for the actual release, and I'm glad I didn't. Why must work get in the way of me playing this glorious game haha!

I'll be an Imperial Agent either as a Marks Sniper, or stealth heals
Grand Master Zym is the server my guild got assigned too. Still waiting on my pre-access. I slacked on my pre-order, judging solely from speculation on the SWToR forums, I should have the key tomorrow. Estimates are around Nov 20th as the last day of invites for tomorrow.

Hmm that wasn't my understanding or theory with some people about it, though I wouldn't say boo if I got access to the game tomorrow.

during my break from work...I don't even want to know how many hours I've logged in this game.

It pretty much is KOTOR 3 with multiplayer. Oh so good. The story is pretty awesome, and it's well fleshed. I will definitely be going through the other classess to see the story. By all accounts, the Bounty Hunter prologue/Act 1 is longer than the original KOTOR itself, so....

I mean I just finished act 1 for my Jedi Knight and it clocked in around 50+ hours.

If you are ever on the same server, hit me up!

Lens (republic) / Sabetha (imperial) on Warriors of the Shadow (pvp west coast server)

This is my first MMO. I can see why you need a catheter in your peepee to play these things. Very addicting.
I can also see why it took 5 years to make. What a massive amount of content. All fully animated and voice acted. And a different story line for 8 classes.
I think the game is exceptional. Very high production quality and fun fun fun.

Level 16 Bounty Hunter Mercenary. I haven't even finished act 1 yet got at least 30 hours into it.
