Things I Hate About SWTOR
This is a link to an editorial on Darth Hater by a contributor named Baelor that was just posted today. While his views may not reflect the entire staff at Darth Hater, one of the premier fan sites surrounding the game, they certainly reflect mine.
Anyone who has read my articles on specialized gear grinds for PvE and PvE, the holy trinity and its boring combat design, the illusion of complexity involved in a WoW-based ability system and so on, will see a lot of my points echoed here.
I doubt that it’s a coincidence that this article from a former champion of SWTOR comes on the heels of the release of Guild Wars 2.
The gang is back together to discuss the launch weekend of Guild Wars 2! We cover everything from questing, crafting and personal stories to world versus world and structured PvP. The only question we don’t answer is if Mark will ever get any cinnamon rolls!

Luckily, all of them were positive!
Running a dynamic event and a heart event on my Asura Warrior during the final beta weekend. The heart vendor sells a greatsword with an icy glow that is the exact weapon that the nearby Jotun (frost giants) use. The great thing is, thanks to transmutation stones you can get in the game, I can keep the look of this all the way up to max level and beyond by combining the look of this weapon with the stats of another.
