Star Wars the Old Republic, or as it's
more commonly referred to as, SWTOR, was released in December of
2011. The game generated a ton of buzz and in just 3 days managed to
land over 1 million subscribers. That alone made SWTOR the fastest
growing MMORPG ever, beating out even the giants of the industry such
as World of Warcraft. Since it's release The Old Republic hit a high
of 1.7 million players but, due to lack of content and boredom, some
players ditched the game and now the total subscriber base stands at
roughly 1.3 million.
SWTOR is a beautiful and addictive
game. With large, open environments and an on the edge of your seat
storyline it can really suck you in for hours upon hours. There are
multiple storylines as well. There are overall stories for both the
Republic and the Empire fleets but there are also other lines for
each class within each fleet. SWTOR
In order to progress through the game
you must complete quests (or missions as they are called in SWTOR),
earn experience points to level up your character and earn credits to
purchase items you need such as weapons, armor and mounts. The
equipment that is available to you depends on the class and advanced
class that you choose to play as. For instance, a Republic trooper
may rely on blaster pistols and cannons while a Sith Inquisitor may
use a dual-lightsaber.
Along with your own player you can also
obtain companions to aid you in battle and crafting. These characters
provide great assistance as they are multi-talented and are easily
trained to use SWTOR
crew skills such as crafting equipment or gathering materials for
you. They can also be the backbone of your PvE strategy by taking
lead in battle so you hit opponents from mid to long range without
taking much damage yourself. Each class in SWTOR generally has access
of up to 5 different companions. You can also earn bonus experience,
missions and more by gaining affection from your companions. You can
do so by using SWTOR
companion gifts or by choosing to make decisions in-game that
your companion approves of.
The leveling system of Star Wars the
Old Republic is much like any other MMO game. In order to obtain
higher levels you must defeat enemies, complete missions and progress
through your character's storyline. For many individuals this can be
a long and difficult process but thanks to the early creation of the
SWTOR guide it is possible to both quickly and easily reach the
game's level cap. Through the use of a strategy guide players are
able to know the shortcuts to leveling their characters, earn massive
amounts of credits and have an advantage in PvP gameplay, too.
Crafting plays a large role in the
success of a character in SWTOR as well. There are several skills
that help players create unique equipment such as advanced armor,
weaponry, modifications for starships and more. These items are both
useful for your own player but also for selling on the Galactic Trade
Network (GTN) to make tons of credits for yourself.
