Community Round-Up: August 15th, 2012

Hello everyone!

Welcome to this week’s Community Round-Up. Every week, we highlight some of the most interesting discussions in the community as well as player-created events happening on certain servers in The Old Republic™. While most of these discussions occur on our forums, we also try to look at what people are saying about Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ on other sites whenever we can.

If you have nominations for next week’s Round-Up, please post them in this thread. Please remember the Community Round-Up blog is meant to highlight interesting, productive discussions and server events - not the most talked about forum threads.

Let’s begin!

Server Events

Get to know the community on your server by participating in player-created events. Below are some occurring this week! Be sure to check out the Server Forums to find other events happening on your server.

The Grand Acquisitions Race World Event walkthrough from dulfy: Iwipe has put together another fantastic guide! This time for our new world event, The Grand Acquisitions Race.

Heroic World Boss List: Bensonrawr has put together this awesome list of World Bosses complete with pictures, level, and location!

  • Thatghost: “Thanks so for this list. It will aid me in my hunt for Trapjaw & Snowblind”

What did you name your ship?: bright_ephemera asks community members what they have named their ship! Some of your answers included:

  • Halinmonk: “My Smuggler's ship is "The Sweet Robin" my Assassin's "The Agony Queen" , and my Consular "Light Arrow".”
  • ShadowNessej: “For my main, my Bounty Hunter, the name of the ship is the Mandoa's Wrath Mainly because my Bounty Hunter is Mandalorian, and also because ive spent all day the day i came up with the name traveling the galaxy hunting down a pub for revenge.”

The Smuggler Fashion Show: Melkathi created this thread not long after launch, but it has continued to thrive! You can find many images of smuggler gear here as well as post a screenshot of your own stylin’ captain.

  • Dracunculus: “This is my lady smuggler modeling the TD-03A Prototype Saboteur's Jacket, which dropped from a champion-level enemy among the bandits in the Taris bonus series. (The rest of her gear is the level 49 crafted armormech set). I like it because it's colorful and gives her a sort of space-bandito look.”
  • Shushhie: “IDK if this helm has been posted here yet or not but its what iv been using and love it so far its called the TD-05A marksmen headgear i felt it was only right with my fur coat ( which i found thanks to an earlier post someone had on here ) to take it while on hoth
