SWTOR grants subscribers HK-55-inspired jetpack in February’s Anarchy in Paradise

    
80
If you’ve played through the first nine chapters of the Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion Knights of the Fallen Empire, then you’ve probably already seen the name of the next chapter: Anarchy in Paradise. You’ve probably also noticed that it will feature the former Imperial Agent companion Kaliyo going by the name Firebrand. But you probably didn’t know that the subscriber reward for this little escapade is a special jetpack mount inspired by your fallen companion HK-55.

According to BioWare, if you are subscribed to the game on the first of every month from February to August, you will receive that month’s subscriber reward. So those subbed on February 1st will earn the HK-55 jetpack.

We could tell you that Firebrand is a infamous mercenary bent on taking down the Eternal Empire at any cost, but why not just show you in the video and a gallery of images below?

The next chapter of KOTFE launches on February 11th. Be sure to check out the subscriber rewards on the official rewards page or just keep following the latest SWTOR news right here.

I had a recurring 180 subscription.  Since my cc was going to change, I added the new payment info way ahead of time last year to make sure.  I also called and got confirmation that a recurring subscription meant recurring, not “we’ll cancel and not tell you.”

Guess what? They canceled my recurring (even though my billing info is good) without telling me.  And when I called support to comment and confirm that I had resubbed…AGAIN…the rep said “you should get the paclk tomorrow.” After he took my money I said…but wait I’d like to have that in writing…per the website which I guess the rep doesn’t read, no jetpack.  

Called management…same message. “Sorry you should have bought 2 recurring subscriptions.”  News flash..try it, you CAN’T.

Hmmm. I was subscribed on February 1, so when and how do I get the Jetpack reward?

You just happen to have friends who are good at the game.  People who enjoy doing challenging content.  Most people aren’t like that.  So I stand by my statement raiding isn’t something you do with your friends.  There are exceptions like you but they’re exceptions.

 

I do group content to be with my friends.  I play the game to progress the power of my character.  These two things are mutually exclusive in WoW.  If I force my friends to do normal mode it’s not fun anymore because a couple of them just can’t do it.  Most of the rest can do it but it’s too frustrating for them.
For Mythic which is the end goal of raiding only 2 of my friends can handle it.  Mythic is what I was talking about.  At that level you’re just picking people on skill and probably playing with people you hate.

dorn2 Higgens Well we do get capped out at some point. We  dont do Mythics in WoW but we have Cleared heroic. 

Comes down to what you raid for, I raid to spend time with those people. If it were not for them, Id not raid.

How do you do harder content with such a guy?  When you get down to it in these games you get to max level then gear is your new “max level”.  So eventually you have to do content where everyone has to pull their weight.
The fact that I have to bench Bill who watches TV while playing is not fun.  Bill is hilarious.  He just doesn’t take the game that seriously.

dorn2 Higgens I just raid with my friends and we do what we can do. We have a hunter, Doc, he stands in all fire imaginable, would never bench him though. We love the guy. I mean we will never world first or anything but we have fun, and that the point of a game after all, no?

Replying late here but I just checked my mail. As for why you can’t understand something so obvious I can’t even guess.  It’s very simple though.

1. Friends are bad at games.
2. People who are bad can’t raid.
3. See 1 and 2.

I guess you just choose your friends based on whether or not they are good?  I’d rather keep my current friends.

Cambruin Questing within the game as a whole is pretty linear.
During the initial levelling (1-50) there are 3 flavours of quest.A class quest chain. The meat of the game, it’s the leash will guide you from A to B to C, etc.A planetary arc. chain: A whole and complete story for each planet. Separate from the class quests. You’ll encounter them due to the linear nature of the class quests.What Bioware are calling Exploration Quests (I think). Essentially side quests. The main class quests will most likely still lead you past them, but they are very much filler these days. (Gather 10 bear arses).
From 50 to 55. There are essentially two planetary quests. No class quests and no (?) side quests. Those planetary quests are divided by faction. Empire get one story. Republic another.
From 55 to 60. There’s a single planetary quest (spanning multiple planets). It’s broken up into Chapters. However this time, those chapters are being released episodically. We’ve currently been given 9. With 7 more (monthly) between February and August this year.
As I said originally, for a new player, it’s really enjoyable. The planetary quests only become a repetitive pain the 3rd+ time through. To get the most out of the game… Play 1 character to level 60. Play another to 55. Then play a few more to level 50. THAT’s the major story, and the thing that Bioware does right.
But yes, it’s somewhat linear. Think Mass Effect. The MMO elements are still there. The endgame is still there. The MMO gear grind is there. The PvP. The on rails space missions. The off rails area space missions. The house decorating. The reputation grinds. The weekly guild leader boards for whatever the weekly grind is.

If it’s going to be “too” linear for your personal tastes. I couldn’t say. What I would say is that you experience from levels 1 to 20 (maybe 15) is what the game does best. If that works for you, you’ll know by 20.

Ah Kaliyo “come on out, I’ll show you my gun” Janis.  :)  Yup, it should be interesting.  So far, so good.  The story has been excellent, the scaled up Ops have our guildies running them daily.  Hec, we have even turned our attention back to Conquests.

Basically, they delivered what players wanted most, and now they have a chance to add more Ops and Flashpoints as part of the story to close the deal.

Interesting how more and more players are now running Ops.  The pugs have been fast and furious although there have been some rough times in there as many players are learning.  Nevertheless, they are getting in there and moving right along.

But it is the story that is the hook, and that is keeping many in the game.  But an unexpected benefit is all the players that are now turning to end game ironically enough.  Our guild membership has gone up dramatically as a result of efforts to bring players in that have wanted to try end game but had bad experiences or were just intimidated.

It should be a fun year. :)

Cambruin pretty much every MMO forums are like that.  If you keep Lotro as your main you will enjoy SWTOR.  The leveling is fun and the story is great.
