OotiniCast Episode 62

We go over the latest SWTOR news, including the first details to emerge about the upcoming Game Update 1.7 “Return of the Gree”. In our discussion, Redna takes us through the stats affecting damage and healing, including recommendations on how to best balance them on your characters.

1. Introduction

2. Trivia Question

Han Solo is famous for many things, not the least of which is his own name: Solo immediately points out to the audience that the character tends to be a loner, who will undergo an internal struggle before he might join the Rebellion.

But Solo is hardly the only example of names having something to do with the character. Name as many as you can, within the following guidelines:

  1. They should appear in at least one of the six movies; and
  2. This is for proper names of individuals only, not generic ones like Sand People or one-time insults like “fuzzball.”

The one with the most such named characters by next Wednesday will win a Taun Fawn code courtesy of BioWare.

If you are interested in being entered in the random drawing for a Tauntaun Fawn code, please send your answer to ootinicast@gmail.com.

3. The Holofeed

There is a new instalment of Dimbo the Trooper available, well worth reading!

@Galdarion refers us to his Gunslinger/Sniper Advanced Class Guide and his Tactical Strike column at Corellian Run Radio.

  1. The android app visibility issue – if you fully exit out of the app each time (i.e. back button or whatever), then when you reopen it the key displays yellow instead of black.
