  • [SWTOR] New expansion details coming out!

    This link of a dev recap of yesterdays first live stream of expansion details is just the first of serveral leading up to launch. >> KotFE!

    If you play.. or have played in the past, its worth a look.. some cool changes coming! One change I really like is that companions are getting normalized, in two ways. First they will all have 3 rolls now.. so you can play the companion you like best and have all 3 rolls available..ie tank..healer or dps. I like that because before you had to use companions that were best for your spec, but it might not have been the companion you really liked. Second change is that you no longer have to gear companions up, the scale with your characters power! You can still dress them up for cosmetic purposes though!

    Also, anyone subbed will get the expansion for free, and its a big one... 9 chapters to start, they will add chapters as updates. They will be adding new companions as well!

    I am two boxing the game atm, leveling multi classes, but am loving my dual mercs.. easy to box and deadly!

      I keep thinking about this game.. I quit after getting to around level 35 I think.. and I got sick of having noone to grp with for the outdoor harder stuff... what have you managed to do so far with your two? Have you just done quests or have you done flashpoints too with companions?

      I am just leveling characters through their class quests ( 12x exp if subbed). Two boxing means that i do some of the instance portions of class quests twice, but you level so fast, its ok to repeat them like that for me. But having two characters means that all the world zone mobs just melt ..other than zone bosses.. they take some coordination and healing. But normal heroic mobs and below die super fast. And now that you can cast GTAEs by double clicking them when targeting a mob..its just fun seeing lots of mobs die in an explosion of lightning..bombs are whatever your class gtae ability is.

      I will also say that its all soloable as well.. i just like two boxing to make grinding through mobs even faster..and at end game i plan to gear up and try to two box some FPs with companions.

      I need to add that they said the stories in the expansion are solo only.. you wont have the option to allow a group member in.. that bums me out.. but the non story quests/grinding will be easier with two.. so ill do those twice as well.

      After reading here http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=721552 it seems companions in some flashpoints are okay if you are playing the tank and healer.. not sure how tricky that would be.. is there interact with target in this game?

      No IWT. But most abilities have you auto face the target your firing at. And the melee specs have gap closers that allow them to jump to the targets..so it helps, but not as good as IWT
