This week’s episode has Josh and Anexxia podcasting without Chris, and lamenting at the fact that his awesomeness is not there to lift them up to their usual heights. They spend most of the podcast talking about how cool Chris is, and how much he brings to the show. That, or they forgot to post show notes and Chris had to do it himself. Listen and find out!

What we did this week

JOSH
I have a confession: I am a terrible person and didn’t log in once this week
- oh wait, no i logged in to change our officer’s bank privileges
- I don’t think that really counts
- I am ashamed

ANEXXIA
Maxed out affection and completed all the quests on my first companion– Quinn. He married my marauder and thinks we’re going to have little Sith babies.
Continue to get weird stalkery ingame mails from Quinn. Think we may need to get divorced.
Marauder hit 43 and is working her way through Belsavis.

By popular demand, more tips on keeping you from crafting your way to the SWTOR poorhouse:

  • Learn complimentary gathering and mission skills
  • Craft as you go
  • Give yourself a daily crafting budget
  • To level your crafting profession, make either cheap items to R/E or items that are hard to come by (i.e. avoid crafting items whose schematic is readily available if you are looking to generate profit)
