I’ve been a bad blogger. Not only have I not updated for close to a week but I’ve also missed the end of the New Blogger Initiative. To my defence I was incredibly busy last week but I should have taken some extra time to finish it properly. Mea culpa and please go look up this post by Syp which list all the new blogs! Congratulations to all new bloggers and I wish you all the best.
In other news Snark Side is progression along nicely in Swtor. After overcoming our roadblock that was Zorn and Toth in Explosive conflict we’ve downed the twin tanks Firebrand and Stormcaller and we did great progress on the puzzle boss in a short half-hour. At this rate, I’m confident that we’ll have EC cleared in a few short weeks on normal mode. As I said before I feel our roadblock was mostly due to gear and I still can’t wrap my head around why a story mode raid requires you to get the previous mode hardmode gear to be able to clear it. Please fix this Bioware.
Despite this, I’m still having tons of fun raiding in Swtor, way more than I had by the end of Firelands when I quit WoW. Swtor raiding has a lot of points in common with the older BC style of raiding with a few twists thrown in. It makes for interesting fights without being frustrating and I wish more people would get to experience it.
