A dedicated swtor blog, owned by Kira. I try to RP and write, but mostly i vent about this game and post pretty (and sometimes hilarious) pictures.
I mostly hang out on Begeren Colony, sometimes on The Harbinger
My main blog is Distance is Progress.
This is my favorite swtor weapon ever. Assault cannon form the Nar Shaddaa event.
Szal was supposed to be resting. But the headache wouldn’t go away.
Scowling at himself, he rolled over his side. He had tried many things to make himself sleep. He threw himself into the investigation that his former master had told him to do. So far, the leads were too mundane or not relevant enough to pinpoint which Sith conducted an unauthorised murder. He tried to channel his hatred. But he couldn’t.
Taking a deep breath, Szal sat up from his bed. Rubbing his forehead, he couldn’t push the thoughts from his mind. These thoughts were worse than the nightmares he could remember of his sister and the slave family he had to kill.
And just right about now he wished he could see them now. It was certainly better than thinking about how soft Jexxia’s lips were. Her scent, one which reminded him of a happier time of long past, wavering as Jexxia pressed to him.
He hated he was brought down by a kiss. Szal was glad that he was alone in his room; no one could see how these thoughts had weakened him, undoing his control.

Ahhhhh it looks amazing!! Thank you!! :D
Things to do as a tank:
- Get a 4 piece set bonus. Always. No matter if it’s 162 or 186 it’s important (same goes for dps and healers. Set bonuses matter and should not be sacrificed for the alternative).
- Get mitigation augments. As in: shield, absorbtion, defense.
- Use the vendor/ultimate comm gear wisely. That gear has a lot of endurance on it, and not much mitigation. Throw away the armorings and use the mods/enhancements as a baseline. Unless you have said 4 piece set bonus, then in whichever 5th piece you have leftover, put a 180 armoring in there (I personally do the chestpiece since that’s hardest to get from pugs).
- Do not use accuracy or alacrity. Ever.
- Tell other people who tell you to stack endurance to shove their wrong information where the sun doesn’t shine.
Things NOT to do as a tank:
- The opposite of all the above.
Like I really don’t think there’s an excuse for a tank who’s doing pug raid to not have a set bonus. If you’re doing said raids you’re getting a shot at the tokens. If you don’t want to tank immediately, go in as dps, roll on the tokens, then exchange tokens for tanking gear. Like you have options.
This! Also someone on reddit (can’t find the link) actually did calculations with 162 set bonus vs. 180 no set bonus armorings (assuming everything else is min/maxed). Nearly all roles except balance shadows /madness assassins come out better with a 162 set bonus armouring.
It’s why I stuck for so long with my lvl 50 armorings with set bonus on certain characters (commando heals and shadow tank) until I got my 162s set bonus. They helped a lot.
Ordinary days were common for Kalsa. Taking orders from patrons, punching in instructions for droids, keeping a close eye on her credit till, closing up her small restaurant in a suburban hub of Denon.
A lonely lady would be there in the mornings and evenings. Kalsa noted her orders always differ. They always steered away from most form of starches, but the lady ate a variety. She seemed youthful with a sense of self-depressing humour with her interactions with the lady, but Kalsa noted the etches across her face. She didn’t want to pry, on her past. It wasn’t her business, and she does want to maintain her business.
Kalsa didn’t catch the lady’s name. It was better that way. Now always opens to opportunities. To talk to new and old strangers, to engage.
It was her responsibility.
I really chuckle and sigh when I see people with 45k+ health as tanks, no set bonus, endurance augments, accuracy enhancements, and claim to be good tanks. No. Just no.
So I messed up and got the wrong gloves and had to send a ticket to support. I didn’t think that it would be such a lovely experience but it was <3
I like the in-character written message :P
