6. Sarlacc Digest

With Game Update 2.9 nearly here, it’s definitely time to be preparing to capitalise on the huge additions to crafting that it brings. Returning guest Bill Lentz, whose financial genius would put the most successful Hutt to shame, is back to let us know all about it. He also has some thoughts on the value (or lack thereof) of legacy storage.

  1. At 35:21, actually certain enemies such as world bosses or commanders can get a shield buff which makes them immune to any damage unless debuffed by orbital strike or other guildship-specific debuff. This effectively makes it impossible to defeat this enemy without parking your guildship in orbit at that time. So in a sense you do have to travel there to complete certain objectives, just to clarify.

  2. In a maxed guild if everyone gives 100k credits boom there’s your 50 million. Just a couple of weeklies for each guildie and it’s done. Smaller guilds can adjust accordingly but it really isn’t hard to make 100k in this game. Hope this helps.

  3. 700k in casino REALLY wanting the magnus & boom – what did I win? what did I win? oh, the rancor πŸ™ I wanted to sell it but I couldn’t. Now that I have it though, I have to agree with Teo, it is quite cool.

  4. I heard that Sith Lord Korv and a few others have started their own podcast called Star Wars Beyond, but I had trouble finding it on Google. Have you guys heard anything about this? I love Fred and his voices, so if you could toss us a link that would be great.

      • Ha, that’s embarrassing! I really need to get back to trying the obvious before expecting Google to spit out what I need.

        I listened to Episode 0 and 1 and they were great. Liked your cameo appearance. πŸ™‚ I’m really thankful there are so many SWTOR podcasts out there, they are all so different and each has something to offer that is unique.
