So, I haven't played many of the double experience weekends. The first round in March/April I was packing and moving into a new place and just didn't have the time. This last set I was busy with family things and didn't get to play until the very last one. And it was over the long holiday weekend. And that's all I did other than one BBQ on the 4th. Being a mature adult has it's perks sometimes, right? Yeah, perhaps not so much.
Anyway, I got two of my guys up to lvl 50 and had created a new sith warrior and gotten her to lvl 30. I may have over done it a bit. No one has gone to Makeb yet. But yesterday, I decided to get the lead out and started my agent on the new content. He's decided to take a walk on the wild side and romance Lord Cytharat. Kaliyo is very understanding that way and has visions of a threesome in the near future, but I'm drifting off topic.
Here's the rant How the frakk do we complete those isotope 5 droid quests? I died, over and over and over. That combat snare they stick you with (yes, yes, it's always been there) just does not let you get to the turret controls fast enough to make the effort worthwhile. I finally had to ask for help, and you know how that goes in general chat. (And here's where the burn out is coming in to play.) Finally a guildie came and helped me, but we both died twice before finishing that thing. Grrrr!!! Thank the maker that was over, right? And I moved my guy on to the next mesa or whatever comes next.
It was late on Sunday afternoon, I was trying to get whatever collection daily and story line done before the prep for the upcoming work week needed to start. It never failed though, whenever I was just through fighting the mobs to get to my quest item, some asshat would run in and steal it at the last second. Over and over and yes, this was a warning sign. Usually I just go off and get a drink or whatever until said asshat moves on to bother someone else.
Then in general chat someone was asking, pleading!!! for help with a droid quest. And people were arguing with him/her. Oh I did that quest solo, no probs! Yeah, it just scales to however many are in your group so how silly are you to ask for help. Use your healer/dps/tank. No one would help and I was dealing with asshat who kept stealing my quest items! Ahem, yes. Too much over stimulation makes Lynn a cranky monkey. So I logged off.
Now I'm pissed, still, a day later. If I have to fight another one of those droids and the only tactic is the turrets, I'll never make it. To the point where I'm thinking about renewing my wow sub for a few months. But I've really, really enjoyed all the story content in the game. When I play other games, I compare them to SWTOR when it comes to quest delivery and npc dialog. Perhaps Lynn needs a longer break than just one day? And why are there so many folks on this game that are just down right mean? How long does it really take to help someone kill Darth Skotia or at least give the person the tip they missed by not carefully reading the quest text. Like we're all perfect and read everything all the time, right? You know, on second thought, maybe I'll just do dungeons forever to get to 55 and hang around doing nothing but waiting to help out people begging for help in general chat. Nanny nanny boo boo, take that asshats!
Perhaps a longer break really is needed.
