SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 32 – Hard Mode Ops For The Casual Team

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast-ArtworkΒ This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-32 talk about what it’s like for a casual operations team to start getting into “Hard Mode” operations, including some tips and tricks on the who, when, and how. We also cover news for the week from SWTOR in general and from our guild, Alea Iacta Est in SWTOR. Of course, you’ll also hear what we have been doing lately.

Anti-April Fools Actual Truth: For those newer to the Star Wars expanded universe, there are a series of books that cover “The Old Republic” as an era in Star Wars lore. The Old Republic: Revan in particular is an interesting lead-in to the current setting in SWTOR. You can find details at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_wars_books

On Jedi Covenant, find Max playing as: Imperial (Max’z, Mhax, Mhaxs, Mhaxz) Republic (Maxz, Maxxz, M’axz) and Sema playing as: Imperial (Maurienne, Enne) Republic (Semaperdu)

  1. Hey first time listening, I enjoyed it a lot. Congrats on CZ… I don’t think anyone likes that guy even after he’s on farm.

    For the giant beam phase, remember some classes can survive that beam if they find themselves turned around and don’t tuck behind the right corner, like Marauders and Sorcs. Also, tanks at full health can typically survive it, especially with a cooldown up.

    Good luck with your progression. Now it’s time to go back and listen to your older episodes.

    1. Thanks Nepthen! That is a good point and always makes me freak out for a second and then laugh when our tricky Sorcs bubble up in the badness. The SM version of the beam I’ve been able to eat even as a Merc. I’ll have to look into exactly how much damage it does on HM.

      1. I think Max should test it out and see if he can survive the giant beam on hard mode. You know. For science!

        1. If it wasn’t so far into the fight I’d do it in a heartbeat. It’s just a long trip through the first phases if I cause a wipe πŸ™‚

          Maybe when we have it on farm and have a BR to spare we can do it. I’m in!

      2. One night one of my Vanguard tanks zigged when he should have zagged and got nailed by the beam and survived. He checked his log and it hit him for 31k. The best part? I caught it on video and it’s on YouTube.

  2. Max and Sema….I love the podcast…..but I’m sorry, you’ve forced my hand. I’m filing a Petition with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Astromechs) for your wanton cruelty against these beloved droids.

    For Shame!

    1. If you heard this week, you’ll know that we like the +11 podcasting crew skill bonus on astromechs. They are just so good at their job! πŸ™‚
