  1. Hey guys I'm looking to be moving my a few characters over to Harbinger. Now that Character transfers are an option. I hope to have a chance to join the old community there if you would welcome this old modder.
  2. In truth Tommycat from a historic point of view a person using a single handed weapon such as a Longsword or Bastard Sword without a shield actually used it less aggressively and more defensively. Meanwhile when using 2 swords or a large double ended weapon as would be conceived in a double bladed sword those styles of fighting were much more aggressive. Your standard 2 weapon fighting was not a defensive fighting technique your intent was to do harm to your opponent or multiple opponents at one time and the typical fighter he wielded 2 weapons generally charged into battle both arms swinging wildly in an up and down chopping motion moving quickly with his slices and generally overpowered his opponents. As compared to your single weapon style of a single blade most typically found with Bastard sword but also longer Long Swords. There are specific styles of combat for using these weapons they easily enough the High guard and the Low guard. The High Guard you held your sword high usually at chest height or inverted at a downward angle over your head. Low guard you held it defensively from your waist. Both were typically used depending on your opponent and what his stance was to best defend and counter your opponent. I'm going to curse myself but I'm going to point to the Death Knight Class in World of Warcraft. This class has the ability to tank in fact is the only plate wearing class that cannot use a shield which makes it a good example. Now in WOW for many reasons you don't duel wield to tank you use a 2-hander there are mechanics as to why such as having reduced chances to block with the 2nd weapon unless you have an exceptionally high hit, also better stat bonuses overall in the two-handed weapons. While I use the example of from WOW above it is not the only example of games and game systems where duel wielding weapons for defensive purposes is considered either a waste in the long run or a bad idea. Usually you have to put more effort and training into the ability and sacrifice other abilities in the long run that are much more advantageous.
  3. So update Everyone I have registered the "Knights of Holowan" as a guild with there pre-launch guild system they have setup if people are interested we are going to need like 4 people who have signed up and that pre-order the game for it to launch with the game. Now of note this guild will be a Republic guild, On a RP Server(RP fan myself is why), West Coast, and English. Here is the Guild Page http://www.swtor.com/guilds/87139/knights-holowan
  4. Forum lurkers are merely those who have not found a need to lend a voice. Thankfully Lucasforums does not punish you for being a lurker. That said my attitude matches that of LF and I welcome you Avisto to the forum and to the forming guild.
  5. Light side Dark side these are just labels. However welcome to "The Knights of Holowan"
  6. I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner i've been enjoying my vacation. But yes inter-clan warfare is fun for all ages. I would be interested to see How they handle factions in the game and guilds. I'm glad we have such an early level of interest in a LF guild.
  7. Yeah we need a healer oh wait we have jedi's for that
  8. Cool will do EW. So far that gives us a 5 man party. Now to get enough people for a 40 man raid.
  9. It's always good to see old Holowan Veterans replying and I'm more interested in being a part of a guild with LF members in particular those whom i count among my friends such as Mav above.
  10. At least Paul Harvey. Jr is almost as good as his dad.
  11. This Is an Official Update as of Today "The Knights of Holowan" is a Live Pre-Launch guild open to all members of Lucasforums and Holowan Labs. The Guild is a Republic based guild and will be on a RP, West Coast, English speaking server. Anybody will be welcome there no matter if you like to PVP, PVE, or RP. This will be A community oriented guild and will not have strong demands on all members to be active. The guild page sponsored by The Old Republic site is: http://www.swtor.com/guilds/87139/knights-holowan If we make our guild membership official on game launch I will be dedicating a subpage off of my website for the guild. Also I will probably purchased an expansion on my Ventrillo server for guildies interested in voice communication or for other end game purposes
  12. Well I had been thinking to form a guild packed with all of us LFer modders Called "The Knights of Holowan" but I might have to scrap that since there at least 3 people here yourself included Jae whom I would prefer to hang with in TOR so I might have to just join Lost Haven.
  13. I'm A breastplate man myself shoulders are nice but show me that Chest.
  14. As proof of concept that not only can it be done but that it works for an MMO and full customization look at secondlife. It would be great if they used some of those in game.
  15. You going to do any more work on the Make Zaalbar a Jedi mod? Although there already is a mod out there that makes the entire Party a Jedi.
