Day Six didn't really exist, but I'll recap it anyway - Day Six Recap by Jac

So, I got home last night to a nasty surprise waiting for me: "Sorry, the servers are down in preparation of the official launch of the game." ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu. I lawyer all day long and all I want to do after a hard day of billing people my large hourly rate is play SWTOR. And then they go on and on about this silly "midnight launch" garbage. What do they think this is, a multi-million dollar game that needs to have launch celebrations and preparations?

So, day six was only a couple hours after midnight, and most of that time I spent on the GTN or playing with the guild interface. For those of you who don't know, here are a couple rules I learned last night about the guild:

  1. The guild has "Recruit" and "Member" for ranks. The difference is simple: Members have signed up and have a dossier on Recruits are in-game only. I didn't know that, and so I may have (but will deny if you ask me) promoted some people to Member that didn't deserve it. Not my fault. The dog ate my rulebook.

  2. There's a spot on the guild roster for "Member Notes." We are placing your real DB name in that note along with your dossier #. This allows people to find your # when they want to submit you for a medal. Take a look at your note (guild pane -> details) and if that info isn't there, ask a guild officer to add it. For sure, how else are we supposed to know that Darth Thrustworthy is Shadow Taldrya?

And then here's a couple more tidbits:

  1. I was a bit too harsh on the GTN yesterday. Here's one good thing they did: when you don't sell an item, you get your deposit back. That ain't bad.

  2. Slicing is the shiz fo sho. I'm rich.

  3. I've been checking out the forums at and There's some great theorycrafting going on about all of the classes. Check em out.

Question of the day: who has actually looked up game theory on their class for things like skills and rotations?



I used the theorycrafting sites to plan my builds, but that stuff doesn't really affect much until endgame. On another, much more serious note - wtf is with the DB guild. Three separate people have referred to me as "Trustworthy"! How can you not honor the god damn "h"? Who names a character "Trustworthy" ?? Boo.

That is all.
