Screenshots Of The Day: Oricon

October 4, 2013

Lots of purdy screenshots to share today, but before I get to more, first I have some order of business to get out of the way. Due to schedule changes, a couple of regulars in our Star Wars: The Old Republic group have not been able to attend our TORsday nights, and as such Operations have been placed on hold for the time being. Anyway, I know this is a pretty long shot but, I’ve gotten permission from the slavemaster — I mean, our guild leader — to throw this out there: if you’re reading this and happen to have a level 50-55 Imperial character on Ebon Hawk and won’t mind running once a week with a great bunch of folks, let me know because we may have a spot for you.

The thing is, we’re very, VERY casual, and we play more for enjoyment than advancement, but I can promise lots of fun and good company and I will vouch for every single one of my guildies. Well, except maybe that Maric person.

Anyway, on to the pictures! So apparently a new update went live in SWTOR earlier this week and I didn’t even know about it; shows how much I pay attention! Game Update 2.4 reveals the next chapter of The Dread War, bringing a new storyline, a new world in a form of a remote moon named Oricon, and a bunch of new quest areas on said moon.

lava

Lava bad!

Naturally, with nothing else pressing on our agenda, those of us in the Imperial Mercenary Corps who showed up decided to group up and check it out together. We had one member just shy of level 55 and couldn’t get the quests (ugh, such a bummer), but he was able to tag along and, with the help of an XP booster, get the experience required to get him closer to level cap.

tentacles

What is up with tentacles in all my games lately?

It also goes without saying, doing all the missions in a group made killing everything on Oricon a LOT less of a pain…

monster

…like this bad boy.

I was pretty impressed with the new area. There’s a pretty hefty story component, but going through all the content won’t take very long and it’s pretty easy; once it’s all done, you’ll unlock dailies (which are just essentially the same quests you just did) as well as a new Operation.

medieval

This is rather Medieval looking.

That’s pretty much the extent of the update, but the rewards are pretty incredible. Completing the entire story will get you a full set of Artifact quality armor, which is nice because I have a whole new healing set to build plus a couple last pieces I still had to upgrade. All in all, it was a good night!

statue

Very creepy and awesome looking statue. Have the SWTOR developers been playing The Secret World?

  1. Love that first picture…is it a plant or mob?


    • Plant! :D

      There’s lots of land features here that look like animal parts or animal skeletons. For example, in that screenie I thought I saw a dragon skull in the distance, but it’s just a rock formation.


  2. Reblogged this on The Muses Guild:THE STORMCALLER.
