Contemplating.

Unread postby CoSK » Sat May 12, 2012 2:27 pm

I've been thinking about getting this game for a very long time now, and since people in my previous clan or any of my friends did not play it. I didn't really want to go through it alone.

I've noticed that you have to buy the game as well as pay for it monthly, which is a little off putting. However, it was on sale for 15£ at Tesco the other day but I couldn't get it because I'd forgotten my ID and apparently I don't look older than sixteen. Which is embarrassing to say the least.

I'd just like to know a few things before I shell out for it.
What makes this game more enjoyable than other MMORPGS?
Does your guild accept noobies? From playing the likes of WoW I noticed a lot of guilds are lvl70+ and have silly equip requirements.
I've heard it doesn't take long to reach max level and once you do it gets a little boring and repetitive. Is this true?
And the big question is;
Is it worth the initial fee and then the following monthly fees?

Thanks.

Sent your through a trial for a week. Give it a go, see if you like it for yourself. I've not played other MMO's so can't compare for you. We do accept noobies - as long as they're social and friendly ones, we play it all on a casual basis. Doesn't take some long too max level, other people it can take a while.

I'm still playing many months later, as are many others, so yes, I feel it is, most certainly if £15!!!

Oh wicked! Thanks ^^. I'll give it a whirl now.
Shame Diablo 3's coming out on Tuesday, really leaving me torn between the two. xD

Gotta say, this game is amazing. I'd go as far to say I'm enjoying it more than I enjoyed Guild Wars. And I've only been playing it for a day!

Is anyone else Sith around level 12 and wouldn't mind hitting up some quests together? :)

You can still do this on republic ;)

You just get to be a dark-side republic char instead of lightside.

It wouldn't seem right being a dark side republican :( Planning on playing republic tonight though, see what it entails. :D

I've ordered it, flibble. Should come in the post before the trial ends, hopefully. ^^

Also, when do I learn to dual wield? D:

Dual wield depends on what advance class you choose on certain ppl.
Mercenary advance class for bounty hunter
Marauder for sith warrior
Sentinel for Jedi knight
Gunslinger for smuggler

What are you on your republic, or planning to be?

And evil is fun no matter what, I regret my light side on most my toons lol

Ah okay, I haven't picked my advance class yet. My Sith character is a warrior and my republic a Jedi Knight. I've only really made it, not had any progression yet. But planning on doing some tonight.
