I’ve recently delved into playing some more Star Wars: The Old Republic recently. Mostly to get caught up on some of the class stories before losing the 12x story experience boost. So far, I’m enjoying the Bounty Hunter story, but it does seem a little repetitive.
- Get a target for my next quest
- Say something to make you sound dangerous
- Run to the target and either kill or capture
- Return to the NPC and get reward
- Make snide remark how easy it was
- Bounty Huntering +1
I shouldn’t have expected more than that from a Bounty Hunter story. Maybe if their missions expanded a little bit more to make the prey seem a bit more dangerous and elusive, but now I’m in the great hunt - this may turn a new leaf and give me want I want in a story.
Some thoughts on 12x story bonus
Going through the story with 12x story bonus has definitely kept me on par with doing the story only. The hurdle I’m facing now is gear. I’m getting accommodations to help close that gap, but I’m finding the inflated economy is a bit higher than I can keep up with. I could get some orange gear and get mods for them (which I’ll probably attempt) but I don’t think I’ll get enough accomodations to do that. The 12x bonus was definitely for people who has an established character with plenty of resources to help your new character along. I don’t have this so I’m doing the best I can.
This isn’t me complaining about the bonus, or me asking for more accommodations, but I’m sure there are others out there, like me, without an established character that is trying to run through the story. This is more of a word of caution of what to expect when going in to do the same.
