Tiger reminded me today that I told him once that I'd never roll a trooper (no offence, troopers, but shooting and the army really aren't my cup of tea). But this is different. Now it's about fashion.
Ever since I saw the White Scalene outfit and concluded it looks really bad on a sage, I've been longing for my own trooper to wear it. The set just looks so damn good! Today I couldn't stop myself anymore and created Xialin. Her hair fits with the outfit, just like her cyborg implant with the exact same colour of turquoise (she's also my first cyborg character). I'm planning on making her a Vanguard and level her through PvP, since that's the fastest way and I'm pretty much done with questing nowadays. For the White Scalene Armour, she needs to be level 45.
Strangely enough, I'm actually liking trooper play so far (ssst, don't tell Tiger!) and it's the last republic story I haven't uncovered yet. I also love the voice of Jennifer Hale, and it feels as if I'm playing Shepard all over again, but this time in the Star Wars universe. It might actually all turn out alright if I ever learn to play her in PvP decently.
I'm probably a bit crazy to create a new character just to wear a level 45 armour set. The worst part: it's not even the first time. I wonder if there are others doing the same. It's all about fashion, right?
So what am I wearing?I actually like the design of much of the starter armour in SWTOR, and this is supposed to be a fashion post, so here we go. From top to bottom:
- Fort Commander's Chestguard, Hardened Plastifold Greaves, Trandoshan Plastiform Gloves, Republic Trooper's Belt, Republic Command Carbine.
- Trandoshan Bolted Body Armor, Tactical Hunting Rifle.
- Republic Trooper's Chestguard, Commando's Greaves, Republic Trooper's Gauntlets, Republic Trooper's Belt, Republic Command Carbine.
