It's been an exciting weekend: I've spent many hours just absorbing the contents of the new expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic
. Of course, the largest part of Update 2.9 is Galactic Strongholds
. I'll come right out to say that the SWTOR
livestreams do not do it justice. I'm finally glad that I could get my hands on it to see exactly what the hook system feels like, where I can find all the furniture, and mostly importantly, how much it is going to cost.
Beyond the strongholds themselves, BioWare
also introduced a new planet and flashpoint this weekend. I took some time to also visit Manaan, and I know I'm going to sound like a fanboy when I say that it blew me away. I was absolutely not expecting something that gorgeous for a simple flashpoint.
We have a lot to talk about, and if you've spent some time on the SWTOR
PTS, I'd like to read your opinions in the comments. But first here are a few of my thoughts.
