I have yet to pick a realm but that depends on where some of my other friends will be playing. I run a guild on world of warcraft and a bunch of us will form a new one on star wars.

Didn't get to play the beta sadly as despite being chosen, there were major issues with my series of graphics card (hopefully this will be sorted by release). A friend had a kin on the old SW Galaxies that are all moving over onto one server so thats where I think I'll be. I hope TOR doesn't get too much of the WOW crowd as I found that to be a very unwelcoming community (I'm sure your cool Rubiks :wink: ).

Calling it the "WoW crowd" is a bit unfair. It's the internet crowd. WoW did not start with a bunch of whiny, elitist, *SQUEE*, immature players. It developed over the years as it brought in more and more people. I can tell you now if TOR lasts as long as WoW has and gets half the players WoW has, it will happen there too. I can also tell you that you will get a lot of WoW players. A lot of us are ready for something new, including myself. One of the top WoW guilds in the world quit recently and will be on TOR so there is the start of the elitist I am better than you crowd.

I understand what you are saying though and I hope so too. You can go to any realm on WoW and the chat is just filled with idiocy. I'd like to avoid that if just for a little while.

And yeah I am pretty much the bees knees of cool. Ask anyone! :P

It's when things get quite that popular, I can't play FIFA or Modern Warfare for the same reasons. Just way too many kids who have found freedom through the Internet and use it to shout and swear. It's a shame as the games are all good, but Id just rather have a better community. Have you tried Lord of the Rings Online? It has a consistently mature and helpful community, which I think partially comes from the restrictions on naming (you have to use a vaguely middle earth-ish style name). Stops all the nonsense of people being called things like Noob Raper and the ensuing arguments.

Yeah. WoW has role playing realms where I have been told things are less crazy. I've tried other games but I am very picky. Havent found anything I would switch to up until now.

Finally got around to getting the game (despite the fact I have 5-10 other games on the go). Started out as a Sith warrior (dual sabered Zabrak!) on the Red Eclipse. Yhe game is pretty stunning and Ive found myself forgetting Im playing an MMO. I love the bioware chat system and suprised it works so well in an MMO, especially group chats- awesome!

Got a guild on the realm Sanctum of the Exalted. A couple buddies from WoW and some of his friends. Running hard modes right now. Gonna try and get some raids together soon. In any case if anyone is interested in joining us, just look up De'trop. I'm on quite a bit and would look forward to some more company in game.

Im not sure Im a big fan of the game, feels like a watered down mass effect but with standard mmo stuff. Maybe its because Im not playing with a big guild and Im playing a million other games.

I went ahead and started another character on Mind Trick because my server is DEAD... all the time.

Gonna try playing with a trooper for awhile, it's been fun so far so we'll see.

Does anybody know, if they ever allow character transfers in game but some idiot accidentally gave both characters the same name, do I get the option to rename them? I don't want to just throw my old character away, so I'm really banking on character transfers or server mergers coming soon.

Character transfers are coming in 1.2 I think.
My friend plays a trooper, they seem pretty damn cool and hard as nails.
Ive just hit L34 (Jedi Sage) and finished the 1st chapter of my class quest - which was freaking awesome!

Good choice. I quit but I did play a bounty hunter which is the same thing except they use big guns as opposed to dual wielding blasters. With the right gear they do some massive damage. Pretty easy rotation/priority. I don't recall what the spec is called for troopers but for bounty hunter the spec is arsenal mercenary.

Man, I hope that's true about the character transfer. I hated leaving my Jedi Knight behind, but that server just sucked. On a night when almost every other server was heavy, mine would still be light and I'm talking maybe 10 people playing on the map I was on. So flashpoints and operations were completely out of the question.

I've only played with the trooper for about an hour so far, but I really like him. He's mowing down even the higher ranking enemies. :thumb:

It's looking like I'm going to go the Commando - Gunnery Ranged DPS. I was kind of hoping for something more along the lines of a medic, but I'm having trouble finding skill tree suggestions for that which makes me think it wouldn't be a good fit. I'm just hoping this server works out better. I've been watching it and it seem to stay heavy at peak times, so I'm hopeful. That's the only really frustrating thing about TOR right now is there is no sense of community. I never had anywhere near this kind of problem with WoW. I don't want to pay $15/month for a single player game.

I understand that. On the TOR realm I was on I joined the best raiding guild but since I still run a raiding guild on WoW I could never get into any raids because of time conflicts. So I ended up playing by myself most of the time.

If gunnery is the middle tree then that would be the tree for top dps.

http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1049172?p=14760285 might be good for the healing spec. I think it's actually for bounty hunter but the talents are actually the same. Just named different.
