So I finally got bored with SWTOR. I knew it would happen sooner or later. As I always find with these things, it seems to come almost out of the blue. I was set to log into the game and then thought “actually I cant really be bothered”, and that was it.
It’s been fun playing SWTOR again. I surprised myself this time around by mainly doing PvE stuff. Got myself some nice gear, got a new crew skill (biochem) up to 400, did loads of flashpoints (thanks to group finder) and enjoyed the new Section X daily area. Didn’t actually get around to doing the HK-51 epic mission. So there is at least one thing for me to go back to.
I rather suspect I might leave it now until spring when the expansion is due. Increased level cap and new planet sounds quite exciting. We will see.
A funny coincidence is that my 90 day game card is due to expire any day now too. Seems it was just long enough to keep me interested. I ought to remember that next time around.
So what next? Initially I spent an evening or two investigating current and future MMOs. I enjoyed Conan a lot last year for a month or so. Tempting to go back. Secret World is free2play too now. Again, tempting. But similarly not tempting enough for me to actually get involved.
Grezko has been in contact, asking me to try Guild Wars 2. He did a good sell via google chat. Enough to get me to rethink and reinvestigate. Sadly I eventually came to the same conclusions as previously. The PvP may well be fantastic, but I simply can’t fall in love with the way the game/chars/races look. It would seem a stumbling block that I simply can’t get over.
And what of the MMOs of 2013? Well, after some thorough investigation it looks extremely unexciting. The only title that seems to grab my attention is Elder Scrolls Online. Other than that it looks pretty bleak. Of course, 2013 was supposed to be year of Dark millenium :( I’m still quite gutted about this (particularly as I’m still enjoying the Horus Heresy novel series so much).
Anyway, to cut long story short I cranked up WAR again. I hadn’t unsubbed from the game. I logged my Slayer and had some great fun in scens. Time will tell but I’m hoping my WAR mojo has finally returned.
My main motivation will be to get my Slayer, Turambo, into the top scenario bracket. Although the step up in Worn Sov will be tough initially, it means I can be more sociable with guildies and join premades. He’s rr68 now so not too far. I’ll look to get him kitted out in ToVL jewellery too if I can.
Happy new year, T.
