Oh, and the Tiny Rackling had this to say, “Come at me bro! Do  you even force lift?!”

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 6 – Healer Leveling

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast-ArtworkThis week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-06 talk about the recent news headlines on a new cartel pack, the upcoming game update, and the finale of the AIE SWTOR Amazing Race. We also examine a holocron of dark secrets on how to level as a healer.

Disclaimer: Ewok hang gliders should not be used by non-Ewok races. Failure to observe weight limits and other safety precautions may result in the user ending up late (as in, “Here lies the late Max who decided to try out Treek’s glider and jumped off a cliff on Tatooine. Have a nice dirt nap.”)

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 5 – DPS Basics

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-05 talk about the recent news headlines on a mini-patch, the closing of the PTS and AIE wrapping their Amazing Race. We also crack open a holocron of dark secrets about an introduction to DPS.

 Side note… my companion was stopping by to talk about dangerous technology but didn’t make it to the podcast as she was killed riding the elevator to join us.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 4 – Cartel QA

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-04 talk about the news on bounty contract week, a couple patch notes for the week, and leg three of the AIE Amazing Race. We also answer a guild member’s question about our thoughts on the Cartel Market and things like the Black/Black dye.

Oh, and it’s only the main bar at the Nexus room that only has Spiced Blue Milk. Those private back rooms are where they hide what they are really serving… Chilled Corellian Cocktails.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 3 – Patch 2.4

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-03 talk about the news on some cartel fixes, the return of bounty contract week and leg two of the AIE Amazing Race. We also spend some time in a segment call “Jumping to Conclusions” where we cover what we saw and did so far on the PTS in patch 2.4. Beware minor spoilers on public patch details!

Oh, and sulky hounds don’t like cybernetic implants in their meals, so leave out the conquered enemy cyborgs. The favorite treat would, of course, be the hearts of the vanquished.

(Update: Lies! This week is Amazing Race 3 of 5, not 4 of 5 as I claim in the podcast.)

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 2 – Ops Night Fun

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech SEPC02 talk about the AIE Amazing Race and the Super Secret Space Project trailer. We also answer a question from an unknown listener about how our teams keep Operations nights fresh and fun week after week in our Ask Us Anything segment. Listen in to hear about Turntable, Triple-Threat, and other ways we shake things up.

Oh, and we’ll just leave this here: Chilled Corellian Cocktail – 2 parts gin, 1 part lemon juice (fresh, please!), 1 part Cointreau
