Hello everyone. After a diablo 3 and guild wars 2 "experiment" I can definately say I miss SWTOR big time. Something just awesome about this game and I have resubscribed and of course will be playing through f2p. I have transfered my trooper to The Bastion server and my Powertech BH is on The Fatman. I will be back with updates soon

Awesome! Glad to have you back Yojack!

I still play around with my 50 Vangaurd Tank. But have started a DPS Vangaurd on the Shadowlands. Wow is that a heckuva lot of fun...

Now that I have a much better understanding of the game after playing it for a year, I'm going to start another tank and build it from the beginning with a better understanding of the game and mechanics.. Looking forward to it.

Hi new to the game use to play WoW and loved my class and character but couldn't deal with the headaches of failed groups due to pugs anymore. I wanted to create a similar character was wondering if anybody knows what would be an equivalent to an arcane mage here.

Not really the right spot for this question ^^ but you would be happy with a Trooper Commando in my opinion. Ranged dps that can heal and wear heavy armor.

Yojack,

I am wondering what brought you back to SWTOR from GW2 because I also have gone through the same progression of games and wound up back here. I played TERA for a while after SWTOR then D3 then GW2.

In GW2 I hit 80 on a Guardian then a Warrior. I tried out all of your Warrior builds and especially liked the 'Captain Hammer' build.

I think we both agree that there is nothing cooler than heavy armor.

Well I was a rogue in wow so nothing beats stealth Heavy armor looks great in this game though gotta admit. I just love the look and feel of this game, and with John Williams to top it off with the soundtrack...its just a lot of fun to play.

For PvP in a MMO do you prefer the grind for gear route or the purely aesthetic rewards route Yojack?

Well, definately not cosmetic driven. Cool looks will NOT make me grind hours of repetitive game play. But if it gives me an edge in pvp or makes pve progression easier etc, then I find the work worth the reward.
