So from the 28th June there’s the Dark vs Light event in SWTOR. This requires players to create a new character and to level said character during the event in order to get various rewards at different level breaks (level 25 is the first tier goal). Dulfy’s guide has all the details. The dilemma I have is what character to play for this? I’m lucky in that I still haven’t completed many of the character stories, so I won’t have to repeat one just for the event. It is a good motivation to get on with one of the ones I haven’t seen yet!
So far I have levelled a Consular and Trooper through their full class story and beyond. I also have a Bounty Hunter parked just shy of the end of his story. Recently I have brought my Jedi Knight up to Voss, so he’s closing in on his story completion also.
Of the classes I haven’t yet finished (i.e done all three chapters of the original class story), Imperial Agent has been my priority on the odd occasion when I have the time to play him. I really like his character model and am not really in the mood to ‘rush’ levelling him for a limited time event.
The second highest priority, of those class stories I haven’t yet played much, would be for my Smuggler. Again, I really like his design so I’d be very reluctant to start a new Smuggler.
So what other class should I use for the event? I do have a really old Sorceror that I’m not that attached to. Finally I never rolled a Sith Warrior on live – that was the first class I played in the late Open Beta and I haven’t played it since.
One aspect to the event is that Light/Dark side choices will have an additional effect in so far as they will add to a cumulative global count of each for the event as a whole. My natural affiliation is with the Light side/Republic. So it may actually be time for me to play a character against type (e.g. Light side Sith). I’ve not tried this before so it could be rather interesting to see how that works in practice.
Apparently the results of the cumulative Light side/Dark side choices will be felt in “the Fall” so sometime in Autumn, maybe September or October, the event will end. That’s a good amount of time for me to casually level a new character.
Does anyone have any strictly non-spoiler thoughts on Light side Sorceror vs Light side Warrior, is one more fun than the other?
