Title: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Evildrider on October 06, 2014, 05:40:45 PM
New expansion announced. 

http://www.swtor.com/shadow-of-revan

Skill trees are gone and are now called Disciplines.
Yavin and Rishi added as new planets.
5 more levels.

Crap. I felt pangs of guilt because of the loss of that budding romance with Lana Beniko and how great the voice acting was in the game.

Ah well. Dust in the wind.

Are they adding some kind of scaling to keep 55 content from becoming a speedbump (just like old 50 content is a speedbump now, even while leveling)?

e: I assume that the tactical FPs will scale just like KDY, but that's only a smallish part of the content...

Are you talking about Makeb?  Cuz that's already been boosted to help people level through it.

Nah, I mean dungeons, raids, etc. My main concern is 'having enough stuff to do at max level', though in practice I'd probably start playing another character to experience their story instead (and stop playing them at the end of act 3, so ~48-50), anyway.  :why_so_serious:

I peeked at the forums, something I'm not likely to do again, and some people seem to be getting it for the 12x exp.  I do appreciate that they price it at $20 instead of $50, like WoW.  I understand that some expansions have a lot more content than others but it just sort of irritates me when they want the same amount for an expansion as they want for an entirely new game.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Nevermore on October 07, 2014, 12:30:43 PM
I'm kind of disappointed there's no new PC race this time.  I know it's just a cosmetic thing, but this is Star Wars and it's always nice to have another excuse to make another alt.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Ingmar on October 07, 2014, 12:34:38 PM
I believe they're working on more races, but they'll be released via the Cartel Market, not as part of expansions.

It looks like their 'skill' to 'discipline' change is going to make respeccing your advanced class possible.  I'm hoping it really cuts down on the ability bloat, and if it does, I'll be happy.

Also apparently having a security token has given me a slow trickle of cartel coins.  We'll see if that makes the f2p options bearable.

Post by: Shatter on October 07, 2014, 07:48:00 PM
Another interesting change before the expansion(I think) is the skill system is being totaled(NGE?  Time will tell).  They are changing class skill systems to something called Disciplines now.  The general consensus is one of the goals of this change is to reduce or eliminate hybrid builds...possibly for making "class balance" easier.  This is supposed to happen in 3.0 Update, not sure when that will be, not much detailed info yet.

http://www.swtor.com/info/news/blog/20141006


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Evildrider on October 07, 2014, 09:01:02 PM
I think it was just a better way to go then just reshuffling the trees like they did last time.  Also loss of the hybrid builds isn't really a huge deal.  It's just the people that think they are special snowflakes that have found something out that most people already know or use.  The best thing they can do is make enough good passive choices that you have a hard time just choosing 7. 


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: ajax34i on October 08, 2014, 09:41:20 PM
I preordered this, because I don't want to play it.

I'm currently playing through the storyline for Bounty Hunter, and I have Trooper and Sith Inquisitor to go, and the 12x XP multiplier for class quests is so good (I handed in 4 quests at level 33 and leveled to 35, took 1 hr), that I'll probably finish these last 3 class story arcs within a month (playing casually) and then I can be done with this game.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Nebu on October 08, 2014, 09:44:52 PM
12x xp for class quests?  WTF?

Can you level 1-50 on just class quests now?


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: ajax34i on October 08, 2014, 09:53:06 PM
Yeah it's a promotion if you're a subscriber and preorder this expansion, from now till Dec 9 when it goes live.

Yes you can level on just class quests now.  Hand in two quest steps, and you get a full level.  Each planet has several steps, so you'll probably outlevel planets easily.

In other news, the cost of mods and mats is through the roof; I guess everyone needs to re-outfit their alts every 2 hours (you can go through a planet's 4 levels that fast), and nobody's gathering anymore because they're all doing class quests.

The number of people on Taris seems to have doubled, compared to Sunday when I last checked (and today is a weekday).  I think the promotion is popular.

Coruscant was packed last night, back to making a couple laps to finish the Kill X bonus quests.

Decent mix of folks, been a while since I've seen a multiboxer so the top end has come back down for new characters, I guess. Only saw one other guy harvesting mats over a couple hours.

I haven't seen a multiboxer in an MMO in ages.  The last time I can clearly remember one was back in SWG where this guy had like 20 Wookie characters all named ****Bacca and would camp Nightsisters all day long.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Sky on October 09, 2014, 02:03:55 PM
Pretty sure I saw one last night. There was a guild blitz so at first I thought it was just the density of that guild's players, but I saw a pair of characters acting very mechanically together. *shrug*


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Trippy on October 09, 2014, 02:07:25 PM
This game didn't have auto-follow at launch (don't know if it does now) so multi-boxing was a bit tricky.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Shatter on October 09, 2014, 09:53:32 PM
I bought the expansion and decided to level my older classes I never finished.  Got my BH from level 37 to level 49 in 8 hours or so.  I did a few side quests in the process(not class) and you realize how much Xp the 12x bonus is when you hand in a regular quest and the bar moves only a smidge.  Even at level 48 handing in 1 part of the class quest gave about 70% of the xp bar.  I did a few side quests for gear, you can skip doing them but class quests get a bit harder if you are badly undergeared.  They were smart enough to make skills no cost as well. 


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Tannhauser on November 24, 2014, 04:44:22 PM
I bought the xpac as well.  The 12x xp was too tempting.  Got my BH to 55 and my Smuggler is 51 and I have five other alts of various levels.  This game is a LOT more fun for me now that I'm focusing on the stories that I never finished.  I'm actually spread too thin, spent hours today crafting and gathering and shuffling items around my toons.  Not touched GS, not touched Starfighter, focusing on stories and crafting.

Plus the expansion was a very reasonable $20 and I can scratch my MMO itch.  Have to say, brilliant marketing move.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Reg on November 24, 2014, 04:50:11 PM
I haven't had the time to play as much as I'd have liked since the 12x xp went in. I wish they'd make it a permanent thing for subscribers. Once it's over I'm going to have a lot of trouble playing at the old rates.

This expansion is superior to Makeb if for no other reason then I can actually walk from point A to point B without having to clear 500 chain stunning mobs along the way.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: DraconianOne on December 03, 2014, 08:13:22 AM
Already missing the 12x XP gain - wish I'd realised before Sunday that it affected Makeb experience too!

What I currently can't get over is how squidgy my assassin feels now. Only recently got it up to 50+ and finished my Chapter 3 story yesterday but oh my god it was painful. If I used Khem Val, the mobs would sneeze at him and he'd fall over even though I'm 52 and they're 49. If I used Talos then he could heal fine and I'd have survivability but I couldn't get behind my opponent.

(I am fully aware that a- my companion gear is not quite as good as it should be but majority of it was on level and b- I have no idea how to play any of my characters at the moment. I'm even afraid to go back to my 55 Vanguard to check out new content!)





Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Fordel on December 03, 2014, 12:15:02 PM
Tanking Vanguards play exactly the same, they just have some marginal efficiency buffs and extra status effects. In terms of like rotation and play style though, nothing is different.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Shatter on December 03, 2014, 10:52:22 PM
If you can get Treek(I think thats his name) he is a superior companion, heals, tanks and good DPS.  Also, I agree about this expansion vs Makeb, far better

I was going to get him the other day when he was 50% off in the Cartel Market. But I was out of coins and the site wouldn't let me buy more (which was probably a blessing in disguise). You're right about Vanguard though - plays pretty much the same as normal and, because I'm a fuckwit, I didn't even use Pulse Cannon because I didn't see it in my abilities list and thought they'd removed it.

Thoroughly enjoying playing this again. My OCD tells me I should finish up Makeb but I'm tempted to skip it and start on the new content.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Sky on December 04, 2014, 10:41:36 AM
Why can't all the companions have heal/tank/dps stances? I didn't realize the ewok could fit any role. Makes me even angrier about the removal of companion roles, since they put in a goddamned ewok that could do it.

Here's my confession: Imo there were only 2 1/2 SW movies, about half of Jedi doesn't count because fucking ewoks. I'd rather watch a padme and anniken love scene than midgets in furry suits. Alright, maybe not, but once you get into the cesspool, it's all varying degrees of decomposing shit.

Ahem.

I think I burned out a bit playing my Agent to 48 or wherever I got to on him. I don't know how you guys play these for years on end (mmo in general).


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Ingmar on December 04, 2014, 01:31:56 PM
Treek only has tank and heal stances, not dps.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: ajax34i on December 04, 2014, 07:46:50 PM
Why can't all the companions have heal/tank/dps stances?

I think it's because companions only have 10 abilities, of which 2 are stances (so 8 abilities).  You look at a tank companion, you take the Tank stance off and put him on DPS, and it still has 4 abilities that "cause high threat" and 2 taunts, which can be a pretty big issue if you're the tank and want the companion to be DPS.   Same with the healer; you put the healer on DPS and half of its abilities are still heals.

Also, each class has appropriate companions.  Healer classes get tank companions first, then DPS'ers, then healers.  Tank classes get DPS'ers and healer, then tanks.  Everyone gets 5 companions because in Bio's mind there are 5 categories:  Ranged Tank, Melee Tank, Ranged DPS, Melee DPS, and Healer.

Yes, everyone is once they hit the new zones. I don't know if it's just a load thing or what, but the ability delay is pretty awful in certain places.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: Tannhauser on December 12, 2014, 06:01:07 PM
I've made it to level 57 and at Rishi.  Overall I am pleased with this expansion.  The ability lag annoys, but I like how this is laid out.  After the gearing up flashpoints I finally get to a planet and it's nicely done.  The city is very appealing and I am really enjoying the story line.  Star Wars has that lived in look and Rishi has the same.  Makeb was too fractured, it was so obviously a quest hub it was painful.  The new skill system may be a copy of WoW dropping the talent trees, but I like the new powers my bounty hunter has. 

It's very nice to have new voice acted scenes and there was even a small scene between some of my crew, which was VERY welcome.  I'd like the next expansion to flesh out my crew, I know a lot of their quests got cut; it would be great to see more interaction with my crew.  Mako, Blizz and Galt are familiar but what about Skadge and Torian?  You could use existing planets, just have quest lines for some of them. 

Anyway, this game is starting to show its age, but this xpac with new voice acting and a new story breathes life back into SWTOR, at least briefly.

In hindsight, Makeb sucked.  I like the new planet, Rishi, it has a great town in it, full of character.  The wilderness looks a bit weird but it IS an alien planet.  I've already got my $20 worth and I've not made it to Yavin 4.  I like my new BH abilities as well.

The talents are all different, the items seem different, I have a TON of free orange shit now that I don't know if I should keep or not, I can't remember where I was questing, there are apparently strongholds, but it doesn't tell you how when or where.

Arg.

It really hurts my head when all I want to do is Sith a Bitch.


Title: Re: Shadow of Revan.
Post by: DraconianOne on January 19, 2015, 06:49:28 AM
If the free orange shit you're talking about is the starfighter stuff then I think it's only worth keeping if you a) you like how it looks and b) you find you have a load of mods for your gear.  As all the planetary commendations are now the same type, you can earn shed loads and gear up without looking like a clown. (My SW is in a mix of the two Imp pilot outfits for the most part).

You don't need to now about strongholds much although there are some useful aspects to owning one - legacy bank mostly but also a way of quick travelling between ship and back. (If you're still in the guild, you should be able to go to the Guild stronghold and have a look).  Other than that, it's housey decorating stuff (along the lines of LOTRO more than SWG).

The new talent tree is simpler from the point of view that you don't really have to worry about it at every level.  You get all the major skills for your tree as you level then get extra "points" every 10 levels or so which you can buy optional passive talents. (That is a very basic overview - sure someone else can give you more details).

As for other new stuff - I tried Starfighter and couldn't get on with it and I have no idea about the planetary conquest stuff at all.

Yeah we were unhappy about the storyline instances this time around. There aren't a ton of them but it's annoying for sure.

No it's essentially treating it like everyone in the game is the same class - you have to do them twice (once for each character) if you do them together I think.

It's honestly like they don't want people to help because they tuned the STORY MODES for single person encounters.

Nevermind the fact that literally every time you meet a bad guy in a story mode, this happens:

BAD GUY: I've got a death warrant on 20 systems for being a badass, you have no chance.
ME: I've heard this a lot.
BAD GUY: Insolence! I'll show you!

Bad guy defeated in 10 seconds because all our gear was upgraded in the prelude.

BAD GUY: HOW?????
ME: Just give me the bear asses please.



Second pet peeve: They actually have wow style quests now. No voice, no diagloue, just a guy standing there with an accept button on "Go kill these guys."

The whole point of this game was to get away from this shit. I paid $20 for this. Don't do it.

I think the reason they're like that is less because of balance tuning stuff and more because of how they decided to do the *actual* personal story quest bits, they trigger from within the expansion plot mission, so it wouldn't work right if everyone was in together. Why they didn't just trigger them with a holocall outside the instance is an open question.

Re: the "no dialogue" quests - I like these better than the terminal quests that have been the filler in previous sections frankly. These at least still have some voice acting associated with them, some of which is kind of hilarious. If you're not hearing them talk something's wrong, they have stuff to say both on accepting the quest and turning it in.

I guess I don't notice it because there's no cutscene and I'm on voice coms talking.

OK so we finished the 55-60 leveling in like 10 hours. It takes no time at all. Leveling at the top end has become stupid easy. I guess they want to shuffle you into operations, but I have no desire for that in this game.

So instead, we're leveling up our other 50 toons, then starting over a new set of toons to level 1-50+, which is where the real core of the game shines. Honestly, if they had just stuck with the formula of creating awesome leveling story content, and shoved everything else to the side? This game would be playable for years. But raids and bad dungeons are cheap to create and the game never got full traction after release.

Anybody still playing this besides me? I'm wondering if there's a good way to gain levels after the main playthrough of Makeb, it seems to leave me at 53 on my toons with 2 levels to gain, and dailies there for Republic are awful.

I'm ostensibly playing. An old friend of mine said he plays, so I re-upped but he hasn't texted me back to set up game times.

My highest character isn't done with Makeb and hit 55 no problem, I don't run dailies and whatnot. Dunno. He did do some raiding during one of the events, so that might've bumped him up some.

CZ-198 dailies are really easy and should be doable at 53. Oricon would be harder but you could probably duo it if your buddy is available. Also there should be tactical FP pugs happening for Kuat Drive Yards I would think.
