Vanguard: 

The Tank type class. Wears Heavy Armor and the Primary Weapon is Assualt Rifle.

Commando: 

The Healer Type class. Wears Heavy Armor and the Primary Weapon is Massive Assault Cannon.

My Personal favorite is Commando, but the screenshot you will see right now is VANGUARD. I tried Vanguard while waiting  for the Patch to Complete.  

BT-7 THUNDERCLAP

Tropper’s Star Ship is THE BT-7 THUNDERCLAP. Trooper’s will get their Star Ship at the end of the CORUSCANT Class mission.

Awarded by GENERAL GARZA, it indicates the completion of Coruscant Class mission, and receiving further details of succeeding mission.

In short its time to hunt down the traitors of HAVOC SQUAD. But before that let me share to you some of the TROOPER/VANGUARD/COMMANDO Class/ Planet quest in Ord Mantell.

Fort Garnik is the Trooper’s Home while in Ord Mantell, make sure to remember the entrance to the office/room where you will received briefing of your Class Mission. Ha! No worries, if you’re lost just simply toggle your map and follow it.

HAVOC SQUAD

HAVOC SQUAD. Yey! an Elite Group of Republic Soldiers, that’s Havoc Squad. The Trooper Class Story is about hunting down the members of Havoc Squad who defected to the Empire.

Meet The Havoc Squad.

  • Commander Tavus
  • Fuse
  • Wraith
  • Gearbox

And Yes you will be hunting them down.

During the briefing you will also meet the arrogant JORGAN, currently he’s not part of the Havoc Squad, but you have to deal with him until you finished your class quest (Spoiler Alert: Jorgan will be your first companion by the end of the Ord Mantell Class Quest)

One of the Class quest was to get an intel from a Republic Spy, apparently when you arrived on the meeting spot his dead already.

Meet Mirru, a twi’lek, part of your Class quest is to interrogate him. Depending on how you deal with him you can earn either a Light Side or Dark Side points.

Finding the bomb is easy, no sweat you can locate and disable them. As you prgoress with your class quest Jorgan or Tavus will be providing details about them, so pay attention.

SWTOR: Certificate Error

As of this writing I’m back to downloading the game again, pretty sad right.

So its my normal day wherein I woke up early to login and play the game, by the way I forgot to create a post about it but I was able to finally finished downloading the entire game, what I mean was that its finished downloading the entire game patched and I could already start playing normally until today. 

So there I was putting my login details for my PC and then afterwards I double-click on the SWTOR icon on my desktop screen, pretty much the usual stuff that you have to do in order to play the game, and then surprisingly I got an error message that says “CERTIFICATE ERROR” not in bold off-course. I was like WHHAATTT THE F!. 

Luckily I was able to find the fix from the forum and downloading the launcher fix took care of things for me but then I’m back to downloading the game patch again. 

And this all started with Game Update: 5.1.3

If by any chance you encounter the same problem like I do, you can check SWTOR forums for the answer or downloading the launcher fix tool from this link  http://answers.ea.com/t5/STAR-WARS-The-Old-Republic/GUIDE-Launcher-Troubleshooting/m-p/4805820#2

Good Luck with the Game Patch … Happy Patching

  

SWTOR: Ord Mantell

One of the good thing I like about SWTOR: STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC is that it allows you to play the game while it completes the download/installation on the background. 

While waiting for the complete installation, SWTOR allows you to create and ay characters on starting planets. 

There’s a particular reason why I love the TROOPER class and I just cant put it in writing. 

When SWTOR was first launched Jedi Sage was the first class I created until I got bored of her class mission and switch to a SNIPER class. 

It was last year when STAR WARS MOVIE, STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKEN when I decided to start playing as a trooper until reality strikes back (more of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK) and I have to stop playing for a while (at-least for about 3 months).

I was a COMMANDO before the game update 5.1.3 for now I’m playing as VANGUARD class to see what the potential of this character based on my game play ☻☺ 

Below are the screenshot of my first mission. 

CLASS: VANGUARD 

STARTING PLANET: ORDMANTELL

First mission after character creation☺

 

 

 

GEARBOX – HAVOC SQUAD MEMBER

 

ORDMANTELL nostalgic for counter-strike players as the entire planet is a war-zone. 

 

Sergeant Byles

 

WESNER

 

SERGEANT JAYNES – FORT GARNIK

 

LIEUTENANT FORRIS

FORT GARNIK
Home sweet home for REPUBLIC TROOPER, its a republic military base in ORD MANTELL. 
Do not be surprised if you see some SMUGGLER running around ORD MANTELL as both SMUGGLER AND TROOPER class starts in ORD MANTELL.

The current game patch update (5.1.3) is giving me a lot of trouble that I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the entire game (insert SAD emoji)

A screenshot of the GAME LAUNCHER as I wait for it to be fully installed.

and because of that this blog post was born (out of frustration)

I would love to attend this years event as I experience it first time last 2015 and it was a “Bang” well that is the term I would use specially if you are a fanatic of superheroes. There are collectibles and off-course photo-ops with various Cos-Play artist.

The Cage cosplay contest is one of the highlights of the Asia Pop Comic Con that I enjoyed, and I’m sure this years contestant will show off their best of the best Costume.

Oh well that’s it I recommend to my fellow Filipino comics / super heroes / cosplay fans to visit the event in SMX Convention Center in Mall of Asia.
