  1. blablabla*I already said I really enjoyed the game, and that's why I didn't bash it more. I payed for it, I have the damn right to critise or praise as I see fit, you don't like it? Tough luck jerk, its a public opinion forum. * edited by Darth333: when you see an inappropriate post, please use the report post button at the bottom of the post.
  2. XD Sorry I just HAD to respond to that. I'm rushed as I write, but simply put, Revan was right, I support him all the way.
  3. EXACTLY Achilles! I used to think KOTOR was dark, but jesus, compared to TSL, it was a load of cute rabbits with glowsticks lol. TSL REALLY felt Dark, Twisted, and savage throughout, and with the story being the way it was, and the characters it used, certainly should've been. Of course that didn't stop the clever use of humour at times, HK47 is yet again my personal god. Though nothing could surpass his classic meatbag speech from KOTOR 1. Great job for really capturing the Dark and evil side of SW devs, I havn't seen such a good job since Return of the Jedi, the first time my mast........er I mean the Emperor talked his Dark side rants.
  4. Well after 37 Hours(Much longer than I would've expected after reading many of the posts here.) I finished TSL, and I am left feeling empty, incomplete, like the rest of this game. KOTOR 1 was a masterpiece, and BOTH endings were outstanding, and left room for a sequel, but also left MORE THAN ENOUGH closure. TSL ending is basically a slap in the face with a sign saying "HAHA! Wait for KOTOR 3 and pay more!" But I won't have too much of a go at the game, as I did(Make NO mistake) enjoy it a lot, but it just felt very empty at times. The story has a lot of plotholes, and causes yet more little annoying niggling clashes with the EU(Probally only annoys me as I love the Old Republis EU era a lot.) And I know this is nothing new, but some of the things they made clash with the EU really irritates me. 1/Darth shouldn't be used for another 3000 years when Bane extablishes the "Rule of 2".(I said the exact same thing about KOTOR 1 BTW.) 2/Naga Sadow was NEVER laid to rest on Korriban, he fled from Korriban after his borked attempt to take over the Galaxy, and was chased away by whoever the new Sith Lord was. He fled to Yavin 4 and died there, until his spirit was awoken by Freedon Nadd, who eventually destroyed Sadow's spirit, once he had grown strong enough in the Dark side of the Force. 3/Small thing that most probally don't know, Ludo Kressh was killed when his flagship was destroyed, I don't think there would've been anything left to entomb, let alone a skeleton. 4/And this is the one that really bugs me, people saying "Revan" went to fight the REAL Sith. That's bull****, and I wish people would get to grips with that. Revan NEVER stole anything, there were no other "Sith" in the Galaxy, there were some in hiding, but they didn't reveal themselves, many were left from the war of Exar Kun, others perhaps desendants of the Sith Empire of Marka Ragnos, that has never been explained in detail what happened to them after Nadd's time(He rose up away from the Empire, as there was a Dark Lord currently ruling over them, this is why he only held power over Onderon, he knew if he tried to branch out, the Sith would destroy him.) Now to be fair, the EU clashes are mostly down to the people who wrote said events on EU, and either not explaining them in more detail, or clashing them with other EU material. Some things have NEVER been explained in ANY EU, like the fate of the Sith Empire(See above) So perhaps it is possible Revan sensed they still lived, and went to find them. Who knows, only the story writers for KOTOR 2. > *Rant off*
  5. Yeah I noticed that in the Movie section, nice touch if I do say so.
  6. I'm near enough the end of TSL, and my thoughts and feelings are very different, which I plan to post about when I finish(Later tonight I thinks.) However I just HAVE to comment, and say bravo, to Obi. for that fantastic cutscene you get by speaking to Kreia about her past. I'm raving so much because its a great cutscene, really dark and twisted(Like the rest of the game, a BIG plus for me.) I mean KOTOR was timid by KOTOR 2's standards, and this scene really helped reflect that.
  7. Kinda. You have to wait a little while, then talk to Ordo, he really opens up to you, and you see him as the tortured soul he is, the quest "ends" somewhat there.
  8. I was just sitting here thinking about TSL(Just over 1 week to go.) and it got be thinking about the characters, how I've already kinda ruined a lot of the game by being on these forums. But in short, I got to thinking about KOTOR 1, and the excellent characters sidequests, however I quest I've never finished and am really bugged about not doing so has to be Juhani, I always get her upto a good level of "friendship"(It doesn't matter I know hehe, but just saying.) And then meet the slaver from her childhood, but after that I CANNOT figure out what to do next, I've tried talking to her and she just repeats the phrase over and over. I've been to just about every location in the game I think, and nothing. Can I run into this guy somewhere and set up a finale for her quest? Kill him or show mercy I'd imagine. A definitive answer would really be appreciated.
  9. *Chuckle* Ok anyways, I THINK I've finally settled on it. Sentinel and then onto Maurauder/Wep Master. This way I get the immunity powers, the VERY useful skills, and more force points than I would as a Guardian. The downsides are the lack of Vitality, however I will try make that back with a very high starting number of Constitution points, and then the feat that gives more constitution(I forgot the name of it.) And also one less feat, however being that the game can let you level up MUCH higher than KOTOR 1, that's no problem at all. By the time I hit Level 15(Prestige time) I will hopefully have enough skill points to get me through the game, I think I'm gonna get repair, security(Don't wanna break loot.) Treat Injury(As a pure darksider Master Healer won't be of great help.) and a bit of persuade.(Though I'm a Sith so I won't be doing much negotiating.) Quick question, is it perhaps worth using Drain Life/Death Field instead of Master Healer? As I AM going Sith first time around, so I will have huge Darkside points to aid the power, heal would cripple my force pool as its a lightside power. The downside is I guess I'm gonna have to sacrifice constitution and Dex points to get Will and Chrisma upto a decent standard so my force powers are at least half decent.(Though in KOTOR 1 they were never higher than 12 as a guardian and I STILL was able to use Force Storm/Death Field to walk the later battles.)
  10. Was there really any need for THAT much sarcasum?
  11. Can I make something clear? True Sith, as in the species, are long dead, they were dead long before the War of Exar Kun, so there is no chance they are still around now.(Though I guess a few could've survived in hiding.) And to everyone who says Revan wasn't a real Sith, infact he was, kinda, let me explain using the EU(If there's someone who's a HARDCORE expert, and by that I mean knows EVERYTHING, then please correct me, but if you don't, then don't pick holes in it.) Exar Kun, a fallen Jedi, becomes nearly the most dominant Sith practicioner in the Galaxy, and seeks out Ulic Qel-Droma, the only other Sith strong enough to stand against him, to claim his rightful place as Sith Lord. It is NOW Marka Ragnos, the great Sith Lord of the Golden Age of the Sith(5000 Years BEFORE Battle of Yavin, and therefore 1000 years before KOTOR.) appears in spirit form and warns the 2 of them they must work together, and proclaims Kun the Dark Lord of the Sith, and Ulic his apprentice. Basically what I mean by this is, Revan wasn't pretending to be anything, there were no other Sith around WHO DARE TRY TO CLAIM the title of Dark Lord, so Revan took it for himself, and took Malak as his apprentice.(To clear another thing up, the "Darth" title should NOT be used in this timeline at all, it was only 3000 years after KOTORs timeline, 1000 years before the Battle of Yavin, did Bane form the NEW Sith, who would come to use the "Rule of 2" and the "Darth" titles. The one thing I can't be sure of in the EU is, after the lengendary battle during the Golden Age of The Sith, where Sadow and Kressh battled for the title of Dark Lord, nothing is made clear of what happened to the Sith empire, its a fact that the Golden Age DID end, but this doesn't suddenly get rid of the thousands of Sith(NOT the species remember, but the followers of the ideals that make one a Sith.) who made the Empire. The Jedi order, who were know aware of the Sith's existence, may well have hunted them all down, or nearly all of them, and they may never have fully recovered, hence why no-one challenged Revan when he took the title of Dark Lord. Many plotholes have Bioware and Obi created, here's hoping when KOTOR 3 eventually roles around they will really make things clearer, or at least limit the numberof new plotholes they form. :/
  12. Then I have a fairly important question, if I go Guardian(Which I probally will.) on the few occasions I can invest in skills, 1 per level, what should I go for? Drazin is near certain about repair not being important as you can get Bao-Dur/T3 to do it. That leaves Persuade(I'm getting Force Persuade as always anyway.) Treat Injury(Helped a LOT in KOTOR without force heal.) or Security(Could get Atton to excell in that I guess.) Anything else? Its good stuff guys, confussing, but good. Keep it coming! Okoru
  13. It just occured to me, you can turn nearly all of your characters into Jedi, that's all fine and dandy. But can you get them a prestige class? Or do they stay as a Sentinel/Guardian/Consular? Thanks in advance
  14. Drazin, mate I respect ya and your a nice guy, but please stop with that corny trash. I'm gonna do everything I can to kill off as many of my characters as possible, I'm a Sith at heart, always have been, always will be. THAT is what REALLY turns me on about TSL, its so much darker, so much more sadistic, and finally caters to the evil ones like me. I CAN'T WAIT! Feb 11th, so close, yet SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO far.
  15. Thank you WhiteBloodCell, that makes things a little easier. I think I've finally settled on what I was originally going to go for, Guardian and then Sith Mauruder.(For first time through at least.) Thanks all
  16. Taken, unaltered, from Dan Simpsons FAQ over at GameFAQ's, check it out, its awesome, link at end of post. Sith Assassin 8 Vitality / Level 3 skill points / level Bonus Feats: Weapon Focus: Lightsaber Sneak Attack I Greater Prestige Sense Class Skills: Awareness Computer Use Persuade Security Stealth Treat Injury Bonus Powers: Force Camouflage - use Stealth without a Generator There you have it! Second, another quote from same guide, making me worry, as if he's right, I will have to go Sentinel for the Skill points: Perhaps the single best way to get items and improve the items you find, is by creating the upgradeables yourself. This is wholly dependent on skills, and the game uses every skill for this except Persuade. This gives you a good reason to have skills for the Exile, but you don't need it(although I'd still take Repair, as noted above). With Bao-Dur/T3 giving you the tech skills, Atton for Stealth and Kreia for Treat Injury you have all the skills covered. Every time you come across a workbench, get in the habit of checking out what items you can upgrade at that time, then go through the list of createable items to see what's good. http://dw.com.com/redir?asid=920194&astid=8&siteid=19&edid=107&destCat=34337&destURL=http%3A%2F%2Fdb.gamefaqs.com%2Fconsole%2Fxbox%2Ffile%2Fstar_wars_kotor_ii_a.txt
  17. I've been pulling over numerous guides on GameFAQ's tonight trying to plan which class, and later prestige class, I'm going with first time around. I have always ruled out Consular/Sith Lord/Jedi Master as its just too flawed for my style. Now I played KOTOR many times, always as a Guardian, so that was my first idea, but then I saw some of the stats on Sentinel and the same things in their prestige classes, Assasin has Averge on Feats AND Skills, and even more shocking, FAST on Powers, its like the perfect class......but, the specials it grants aren't great, and the feeling of not picking a set area(Lightsaber or Force Powers) to advance in is something I can't shake off. Something that's really bugging me is from what I can tell, it really requires your character(Exile) to use skills, something the first game didn't at all, I just went with Treat Injury all the way. Aswell as the fact apparantly EVERY attribute is so important, for every class. My head is seriously close to exploding from it all. The point of this thread though is, as a starting class, is Sentinel worth considering, as I've done my homework, I would have 1 feat less than Guardian at level 20, aswell as less Vitality. But much more skills and a few powers aswell I belive. Also the Sentinels special power, Immunity, is awesome,and will surely come in handy.......but then Guardians Jump(As a big LS fan) is awesome. I really am at a dead end. PS. An all important question, once you pick a Prestige class, do you gain only those benefits per level, or do you gain both your starting gains per level ASWELL as the prestige classes gains. If you follow me?
  18. I must admit in KOTOR 1 pretty much every time I went through I just used "Med Use"(Or whatever, its what I call it though) And nothing else, as Mission/Zaalbar got the skills to do everything I wanted. Persuassion would be nice, BUT, since I'm playing Dark, I can either use the old hand wave trick, OR kill em hehe, never had to persuade anyone, I'm a Sith......I TAKE IT! Your sure that breakdown/build trick works? If so that makes my choice a little easier, as I only really need to put points into Med Use, so Guardian would win.
  19. Good stuff mate, just a couple of things though: I have heard from several people that breakdown/create is only affected by the Exiles repair skills, as its him using the workbench, so leveling Bao-Dur/Atton in it would be somewhat pointless. I must admit I'm having a hard time picking my starting class now I look a guides listing of the differences. I definatly don't want Consular as I played one in KOTOR and it wasn't much fun I have to say. So that leaves Guardian or Sentinel, now I would like to level several skills so Sentinel wins due to getting 3 per level compared to Gaurdians 1. I do however want Vitality, and Guardian gets 2 per level compared to Sentinel. Powers at level 20(For example) are both the same for these 2 classes. So that leaves feats I guess, and Guardian comes out on top due to 11 to 10. However I CANNOT decide what to settle on, simply because I DON'T want to tie myself down as a LS/Melee combat guy only, I really would like to use both LS and Force with devestating affect, so some would argue Sentinel/Sith Assasin would be the thing to do, the only problem is you end up as a somewhat "dabbler" and don't specialize in anything. I've played through the first many times, and had always been a LS whore, until I REALLY started using Force powers a lot(Not just to knockdown or heal and such.) and I enjoyed it to hell, taking out near everyones health in a room with Force Storm, Chocking with "Kill" and diseasing them, really fits playing a Sith I think. I must admit due to the fact guardians only plus is 2 vitality per level, and 1 feat, that Sentinel followed by Sith Lord or Mauruder(Sp?) would be best. Bah, no matter how many times I go over it I really don't know.
  20. Hope your right I've just been doing some last minute research on the game, to help avoid any serious bugs, or missing something big in game. I did the same with KOTOR 1, and after reading about the Carth bug, I'm glad I did, as I did the right things needed to avoid it. There are some horrible bugs in TSL, and some in-game events you can **** up by total mistake, I can see I'll have a lot of save files this time around. I've just about worked out my character/party strategy, see what you think, and if you could give me any points on how NOT to screw it up, I'd appreciate it. Dark Side Male, unsure on starting and prestige class yet, probally Guardian/Mauruder. Supporting party Handmaiden(JEDI version) and Viass(Sp?). A real Sith team. I'm thinking of going to Dant first and doing some of the quests there first, and sorting the Saber/Crystals out, and then instead of playing through normally, going to Korriban and using the spawn exploit(You have heard of it I'm sure) to get upto Level 40+(And then getting Prestige class earlier than usual)
  21. *Crys* And I didn't read the last page first, I had been following the chronicles since the start, not that they were anything new to me(BIG EU, Sith especially, whore.) Damn, seems like such a crappy twist, from the first time I saw her in a screenshot, to the final few weeks before the game, I've hated her, I'm extremlly pissed off she's such a big focus of the main game. *Angry mode on*
