Remember how I, not so long ago, created vanguard Xialin just for the White Scalene armour? Well, I did it again.
The new Cartel packs drop some lovely stuff, of which I instantly liked the Genteel top. The only downside was that it has a light green shirt underneath the beautiful white clothing, which doesn't fit every character. It would've been better without that light green. Ah well, I thought, I don't have a character that would wear it and I'm not going to spend any money on those packs anyway.
But then Tiger came and said he got a Genteel top from a pack. He wasn't going to use it himself: if I wanted it. And of course, I couldn't say no. A few hours later, Fárah was born.
And that's right, Fárah is a sith sorcerer! I felt the top would really fit a caster, and I already had two consulars. Besides, Tiger keeps asking me to come play lowbie on Imp side, and I didn't have a suitable character for that. I also wanted her to be a Mirialan to fit with the light green part of the top, so I had to buy the race unlock for that (luckily there was one on the GTN). I surely know how to get rid of my money this way!
I also choose to wear trousers instead of the long skirt that came with the set. Tiger hates it, but I think it looks cool, a bit less 'sagey'. Better fitting for a sith sorcerer.
Since I'm a saint, Fárah was supposed to be a 'good' sith. A Mirialan born in captivity, discovered by the sith for her force sensitivity and therefore sadly enough ending up on the wrong side. However, there is no true 'good side' option for many of the quests, and Fárah has to do some creepy things now and then.
Getting electrocuted and actually liking it, seems pretty creepy to me.
I skipped all the quests on Korriban and Dromund Kaas involving killing or otherwise harassing slaves, as that would be hypocritical. I leveled fast enough by playing warzones anyway, and especially so with the double XP weekends. I'm already level 33 now, so I think I'll leave most Imp quests (which I haven't one on any character so far) for Yuniper and Shyala to discover. However, I'll need to do some (together with a Social Point slave) to get to Social II for the Slave Girl gloves and sandals, which I think would look great with this set. For the belt I'm not sure if I want to use the one of the Genteel set, or if I want the Voss reputation one (for which I'll need to get Champion with the Voss first).
Outfitting characters - will it ever end?
