SWTOR meme 1 (past starting planet) and 1 (past Hoth), 3, 9, 10.
Thanks for asking :)
1. How many characters do you have?
70 chars survived the last purge, where I deleted every char whose design and/or idea I didn’t like anymore and was fairly certain I’d never play them.
All but 12 of those chars made it past the starting planet. That’s 58? Why does 58 sound like much more than ‘all but 12’?
13 of those chars are more or less below lvl 50, and haven’t seen Hoth yet.
Leaves 45 who have a level higher than 50. With 30 I am sure I played the class story, although it’s been a while, most of the rest were leveled during DvL Event by doing H2 and FPs.
3. Do you prefer to tank, DPS, or heal?
I prefer to heal. You usually have to pay attention to what’s happening and have to be able to react flexibly. Yet you don’t have to know the FP or OP by heart, as is often expected of a tank. I lack the time to be a proper tank. Since our raid group has enough healers, I am playing melee DPS as main role rn. It’s a whole different experience, and I am propably the best behaved marauder in our whole guild :D
Yes, in order to do noteworthy damage, I have to concentrate, but mistakes are usually not as fatal as the healer botching up.
9. How about your least favorite companions?
I personally would have problems with quite a few of them. I prefer nonviolent solutions, so the obviously violent ones like Skadge, Vik, Xalek, Khem, Broonmark… wouldn’t be on board of my ship. Anyone glorifying the Empire would have a problem, too.
For me it’s interesting that my chars don’t necessarily agree with me. While Ciner in headcanon doesn’t take Broonmark along, Thorns gets along with Skadge. He doesn’t like his methods, but the brute can be useful, and so far never betrayed the bounty hunter’s trust. Gault on the other hand was treading on dangerous ground when he tried to scam those poor settlers. You can’t trust Gault, law of nature! Tbh, I was more angry at BH Tatooine than Belsavis, although I like Gault as a character, the story didn’t go well with Thorns’ sense of honor.
While a lot of people don’t like Tharan at all, I have more problems with Zenith. Immo he doesn’t fit a LS consular, and he can’t even blame his cultural background like Qyzen.
10. Favorite love interest?
Mako! Give me Mako and Thorns, and I am 19 again. I don’t need to write a self insert, it’s already there. (I wasn’t as cute, and nowhere near as gifted with computers.)
Elara is a close second. When I started to play Nikeo I hadn’t planned on romancing her, him being her CO and all. But them growing closer felt so natural. And I adore Elara for her spine and sticking to her principles.
And then there was Andronikos. Immo the most mature relationship, without unnecessary drama, without jealousy. He won’t change for the SI and he doesn’t ask the SI to change for him. They belong together, and that’s that.
