Almost the new year

I see it’s been quite some time since I updated this. The main reason is, glaucoma of course, gerontologist lack of anything to say. But just to stop this blog from dying I’m gonna post anyway. So more ramblings for you!

I’ve been playing a fair bit of SW:TOR when I’ve been finding time. My progression has been slow, healthful mainly due to the server queues. I’m quite a causal player and seeing queue times of half an hour or more makes me play on a different server. I’ve now got characters spread over three servers;

The Red Eclipse

I have just one character on this server, it’s my guild (The Casual Travellers) server. This is my “main”, a level 16 healing Smuggler. Until recently she’s been neglected due to the queue times, but finally these seem to be settling down and so I’m finally getting to play on here more often.

Eye of Ashlanae

Two characters, both Imperial. This server is the unoffical second server for my guild, and you can often find our guild leader on here. Many of us retreat to this server when the queues become annoying because¬†it’s never full. I’ve a couple of level 10 ish toons on this one.

Hidden Beks

This is the Munqui Tribe server and I’ve a couple of very low level Republic toons parked here. Unfortunately this server also suffers from queues almost as badly as the Red Eclipse, so, with regret, I nearly always hit the “Eye” instead of coming on here.¬† I say with regret because I know the Munqui’s and a finer bunch of people you would be very hard pressed to guild with.

Having so many characters means I’m leveling much slower than everyone else.. I know of at least one TcT on Red who now has two level capped toons, and I’m pretty sure that by now there are some Munquis on Beks with near capped characters. But, I’m here for the scenery, and I’m not going to rush. At least my “main” at level 16 is finally getting enough healing capability to actually start feeling like I am playing a healer of sorts, And I’m starting to engage more with the game. Even to the point of running a couple of dungeons Flash Points, though these are with pickup groups as I’m right at the bottom of the “leveling” ladder within the TcT.
