I’ve now played my new bounty hunter for a second, more substantial session.
I ended the session at level 8, so still very early days. But so far I’m enjoying the class rather a lot. It helps that Nal Hutta is an interesting starter world, more interesting than Ord Mantell in my opinion.
I already have a great signature ability “rocket punch” that is so over the top in its animation. As I finished I gained the flamethrower as a combat ability although I haven’t used it yet.
Playing solo for now on this character, I was impressed with how buzzing with people Nal Hutta was. Even better there were lots of people looking to do the harder content on the planet. I did several heroic missions and killed a champion robot (above) by simply grouping up with whoever was nearby at the time. No fuss, no drama and some polite Imperial players so far!
I’ve also started playing a Sith sorceror now as part of a leveling trio; once we get that group off of Korriban, I’ll be able to swap to the bounty hunter. It’ll avoid story-mission overlap and make, I hope, for a nicely balanced group.
