    I love it when companions come back from missions during a space battle, because when you barrel roll you can see them flying behind you.

    Tatooine looks cool as fuck.

    I've realized picking up every drop from mobs after death, IE, money, claws, electric-non-use shit can really get some dosh, went around killing Rakghouls and racked up 1500c from their claws alone, well worth picking stuff up, need to save for my mount n anyways.

    OP, wanna add the stuff you can spec to with each individual class? Looks pretty small variety, but with the specs it's actually quite a lot, a class within a class.

    Was gonna do that but the pages they link to have a specialization tab and it'd look strange since each advanced class doesn't have its own icon.

    I hate it when people take gear in flashpoints just to sell later on.

    I did the black talon as a jug and some inquisitor took an awesome chestguard. Whenever I see something that I can't/won't use, I pass for the others.

    If you need it you need to, so roll Need. If you want to sell it, roll greed, If you're a nice kind gentleman you'll pass it if you don't need it


    I hate the people who roll need, even though they obviously have no use for it, it kind of pisses me off actually. You spend time looking for a group, or getting one together and get everyone in the same spot, head in, spend 25, 30 minutes, or an hour on some like Boarding Party/Foundry. Something you could use drops and some dipshit rolls Need on it

    I'm really loving the replayabilty of this as an MMO. Bioware continue to push quality.

    I'm playing as a Sniper at the moment and have dabbled in the other classes.
    What are the better dps overall?

    It gets more annoying if you're a trooper for Republic because EVERYONE will take the blaster rifles,cannons and armor just so they can make their companions better.

    I think when you're getting    Revan's mask    during one of the early Sith Warrior Quests.

    Heh a sign in the Anchorhead Starport says "Tatooine: A Most Excellent Farming Planet" except the 'T' in most is scracthed out so it says "Mos" heh. funny

    Every Facepunch attempt to play together / on the same server as each other ends terribly or just gets forgotten about, too many people over too many different servers to bother but If I have time I'll think of something.

    OP Doesn't need to bother with a list. There are around 100 servers and the odds of FP trying to converge on one and make some guild is funny. The game is in it's 2nd week of launch, most of you will be around level 30-40 by now and not want to do re-rolls.

    The best option any FPers have of playing with each other would be to see if another guy or 2 are on your server and add each other, a mass guild won't happen at this point. It never works out even in smaller games with FP. A list is too difficult for the little usage it would provide.

    I like how they put the post limit back on threads and half of GGD gets locked.

    Just grinded out a level so I would be 36 when going to Quesh. I did Space battles and ran Boarding Party; I really liked Boarding Party.

    i think this is my new highscore for defending on alderaan civil war
    note how I'm so good at defending yet my team is fucking awful at the game, I went and took leftside by myself and told them all to take mid. A few minutes later I see they're split up trying to take both mid and right

    Yeah the game + a subscription, you can cancel it afterwards. I haven't played much since I'm not really much of a MMO person, but the class based story seems very nice. Kinda like Mass Effect.

    And the fat body type is absolutely hilarious.
