The circle is now complete! Anexxia signs on as a full-time host, and help Josh and Chris unravel all the news since TOR’s launch, help you pick the right crew skills for your character, and talk about a fan-made mobile app that will blow your mind.

What we’ve done in game:

Anexxia:

  • Level 47 on the Sith Inquisitor- Sorcerer
  • Closing in on the end of my class story
  • Bought my first vanity pet (mouse droid)
  • Maxed out Synthweaving and still was able to purchase level 40 speeder riding and speeder (thanks in part to my Bounty Hunter who lives at the Galactic Trade Network terminal)

Josh:

  • Level 36 Imperial Agent – Operative Healer/DPS
  • Finished 1st chapter, deep into 2nd
  • On Hoth right now — I used to think Talz were cute. They’re total JERKS!
  • Huttball: before and after Christmas

Chris:

  • Level 31 Jedi Guardian – Almost done with Alderan.
  • Working on my crafting with the Jedi mostly, but I originally picked Armormech (d’oh) instead of Synthweaving for my Jedi Armor. Up to mid-100s now at level 31.
  • Trying to keep up with crafting, but it costs so much $$$$. Armortech at 67.
  • Several alts in the low teens, but the story for my Jedi keeps pulling me back though!
  • Trying to get my Smuggler (Gunslinger) up to the high teens to keep up with friends. Once I get my ship, I’m going to try leveling him with class quests and space combat only!
  • Going to level my trooper as a PvP healer. See how that works.
