Mains on Launch Day?
« on: December 07, 2011, 03:50:28 AM »
Okay, if everyone is up to it, would you mind posting what chars you believe you're going to focus on first on the republic and the DARK side as well? :)

Just curious personally, but would also be nice to see what manner of mix we could end up with.

I plan on commando dps for republic, the fact that I get a dps and heal companion sorta makes it non essential for levelleing. Group healing would be out of the question with this build methinks.  Aoe on the commando's simply rocks ;)

Empire, I'm probably going to focus on a sniper.  Love the idea of it, though levelling up seems harder than most for the lowbie lvls.  They are squishy compared to mr commando ;)

thanks,

Tigs

Funny - That's exactly what I am planning on, too.

Probably a Trooper Combat Medic on Republic, and Sith Sorcerer  for Sith Empire.

Republic: I will be starting with my jedi consular healer/dps, followed by a trooper dps then my smuggler, not sure what build prob hybrid dps/heal.

Empire: I will be starting an inquisitor healer/dps. Not sure what else if any. Maybe a bounty hunter later.

Republic Characters:

Roat:(pronounced Rowat) Jedi consular
Dricia-Keeli: Trooper
Ral'Rai-d'ukal: Smuggler

Empire Characters:

Saitok: Inquisitor
Jesab: Bounty Hunter

I am not going to be on a leveling binge with my characters. I will probably take turns getting them all up, keeping the same level range as I go. Possibly including the inquisitor. On the first weekend I leveled the three up to 10+ in three days and a bh to 5. I expect to keep on the same curve till all are 60. If I get left behind, so be it. I am going to explore all the aspects of each character. I will be crafting as much as possible to assist them with gear besides drops. I found in my experience that the gear drops seem to favor the character. I got very few drops for my transdoshen with my consular.

My three crafting skills will be armormech, armstech and synthweaving with the appropriate gathering skills.

[Edit] With three characters I will have all the gathering and mission skills. I will just send items back and forth as needed.




I am lost. I have gone to look for myself. If I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Probably Bounty Hunter Mercenary (Healer/DPS) and Jedi Shadow (Tank/DPS)...   Not 100% sure though still.

I'm thinking Bounty Hunter on the Dark Side, and either Jedi Consular on Republic, or a trooper/dps. I haven't gotten a chance to try them all out yet. Also, I have been playing City of Heroes the last 2 years with a fairly close group of friends, and I'm likely to spend time playing with them as well on ToR. I'm guessing we'll all end up grouped together at some point!

If they are the same people I met, have them make an application to PIF and they should be welcome. I will vouch for them they are nice people. I am sure Shanni knows them as well. Then we can all group with them as well.

We can all group with them regardless, but I will pitch the idea to those that aren't already in the guild. I'm not sure how many have actually committed to the game yet, and how many are just "interested". I only know of 1 for sure, and there's one I'm pushing to buy it as well as I can, hehe.

Here's the names I've got, at least preliminarily, planned for my characters:

Romani - Bounty Hunter
Kailef - Republic Trooper
Candace - Imperial Agent
Ariyn - Smuggler
Ra'en - Sith Inquisitor
Jorran - Jedi Consular
Rohanne - Jedi Knight
Klbraen - Sith Warrior

I'm going to quickly create all eight in the hopes that I can reserve each of the names for the time that I start playing the character.

Im having a harder time figuring out my char names for the republic side than for the empire.  Empire is easy, have about 10 names listed ;)

Rep, meh..maybe 5 i'm wanting to use ;)

Tigs

Oh yeah, my commando will be Tigs, that one was easy, barring someone beating me to the name, and with the staged release, who knows.

Hmm. Tough one.

Empire will be first. That I am pretty confident of.

I really, really want to play a Sith Inquisitor... but I like both the Assassin & the Sorcerer ACs. And within those Advanced Classes are 5, potentially 6, completely distinctive options. Aaarg! So I probably won't know which I'll really play thru till I get there and have to actually click a choice.  ;)   Of course, if history is anything to go on, it'll be the Sorcerer/Lightning tree. Shooting lightning from my fingers? Ooohhhh yeah! And, the vast majority of my toons have been Ranged DPS, not Melee. So... <shrug>. We'll see!

On the Republic side, I honestly don't know. Once I created my Inquisitor, the lure of the Light side faded.  8)  Probably the opposite of my Inquisitor in the Consular line. But the Smuggler is looking pretty cool, too. Really enjoyed that Gunslinger in beta... I have to admit to a yen to try out a Consular Sage, tho. If it's true you can be a healer, and still be a fun and effective solo-er... well. That'd be awesome. But I've heard that claim before...

Names? Darth Jim sounds pretty awesome.  ;D

I've been thinking about names for weeks. Since before I got in the weekend beta. And as yet, nothing definitive has surfaced. I'll probably use the name generator until it gives me something that sparks an idea.
