If this is the worst problem in the game then bioware have quite possibly made the single best videogame of all time.
Syff, Suder, Lieutenant Lonn, Captain Maureen.
Tassitan, Darth Vandicus, Agent Cormoran, Marin.
Blazerunner legacy, Lord Adraas server

The first lightsaber for a shadow/assassin is called a worn double-bladed lightsaber?

That's AWESOME! I have a historical relic that I apparently found! If I want to RP, I can spend time trying to divine it's past. Maybe it has a history and possibly even extra powers. I LIKE this. Bioware do NOT change the name. Woot for antique lightsaber.

They see me trollin'....


Seriously though, who cares? It's not like I open "inspect", and care what the names of items are.

Its just a word?? Is it seriously that important? Maybe just don't read it... Or even better just get some whiteout and rub it on the screen every time you pull up your inventory.

Let me know how that works out.

Why is it while everyone else gets a normal one, we get one called "worn". It doesn't affect anything but the name, but still I'd like the ability to use my first light saber all game, and the word "worn" just makes it less epic.
Well do you realize that other lightsabers can be gained later in the game ?

It's part of your story that the lightsaber you acquire was used before you got it.

There are plenty of named lightsabers out there, something you get from a vendor at level 10 is going to be generic, not special.

See it IS a WORN saber.. it was USED you did NOT create it.. you were a Lazy Sith that used an OLD saber instead of MAKING YOUR OWN LIKE A JEDI..

so if you DONT want a worn saber... dont use it.. by L30 I had 5 fully moddible Orange sabers in my pack..
they come fast..
in other words..

TLDR..

I do realize that, and no its not part of the story. The first one you get called "Lightsaber" is, however the one you get for being a shadow/assassin is just in the box you get from your AC trainer. It has no story what so ever.

You can use it from ~6-7 till 6 years from now.

Its fully upgradeable and will be a viable end game weapon through nightmare modes.
