So I bit the bullet and participated in the last beta weekend for Star Wars: The Old Republic. I made the conscious choice to enjoy that last little morsel the game had to offer until release and like any of the last pieces in life; I took the time to savory and enjoy it to the bitter end. Here is my second look at the MMO that brings story to the forefront.
This time around, I tried to experience different classes and get a feel for what kind of the story Bioware wanted to tell with these classes. As a Mirialan Smuggler, trouble followed me wherever I went and, as Human Sith Inquisitor, I started at the bottom of the barrel and had to painstakingly work my way up.
Wily, wily Smuggler
The Smuggler starts off with what they do best, smuggling. I started off delivering a shipment of weapons to Ord Manteel for the Republic to help in the ongoing conflict. From there things happen and in typical Smuggler faction shit hits the fan early. One of my associates decides to steal my starship along with the weapons and makes a beeline towards their own successes while I end up holding bag without a ship, and a dangerous crime lord breathing down my neck because of the busted deal.
