SWTOR: Bravado by Isriana SWTOR: Bravado by Isriana
"Captain... You're bleeding on my Alderaanian carpet."
"Hmm? Oh, this? 'Tis but a flesh wound."


I love how the game allows my Smuggler to maintain the aura of cool inspite of my own ineptitude... :XD: This sketch was actually born almost a year ago when I first started playing SW:TOR. I think it's worth pointing out that the twi'lek Smuggler here was my very first character in this game. The stealth based class combined with my n00bness actually made whole Ord Mantell one long deathfest for me and my poor Seela - so it was quite (grimly) amusing to act as this swaggering, overconfident gunslinger when my actual gameplay could not have been further from it.
In hindsight I probably would have done myself a favor by starting this game as a Trooper or something - I don't know if it's because of the features of the class or me actually getting better at this game, but my second run through Ord Mantell as a Havoc Squad member was sooo much easier than this. Still, this class is definitely one of my biggest favorites.

I'm taking a break. I'm not really one of those people who can keep playing multiple RPGs at the same time. Right now I'm having my hands full with The Elder Scrolls stuff.

I hear ya there. I had played TOR for a while, then went on a hiatus and played Mass Effect and Skyrim in the meantime. Now I'm on my second wind with TOR... at least until I burn myself out again. lol

Anyway, keep up the fun comics.

*dies* I love your comics!

 

Well, my first was gunslinger and actually did better with her than I did with my trooper later. but then I played a hunter in WoW for several years, which is almost the same class....    I do have to say, for conversation options the smuggler cannot be beat.

My most fondest memory of playing a Smuggler was on Ord Mantell, where I fooled the guard into thinking his droid was malfunctioning, and doing so in such a sarcastic manner that I still don't see how I managed to pull it off.

whether with help or not it always felt like you were on a time limit to get things done before all your hardwork was undone by fast respawn rates

"I swear I just cleared these corridors five minutes ago" ugh, tell me about it. The only time I like the rapidly respawning enemies is when a mission calls for a certain number of kills.

Love the expression on her face when she gets caught sneaking up on a guy, and of course "Hey, look! Republic Infiltrators!" will always be hilarious just because that actually works :giggle:

This is awesome :clap:

Yeah, same here. If I have to do a lot of running back and forth in same areas my Smuggler usually just goes "ugh, I'm not gonna tangle with these guys again" after a while and simply sneaks past them in stealth... No such luck with my other characters, though. :XD:
Hehe, thank you very much! :la: I'm glad you think so!

I so know what you mean about all this!  I've run a few more smugs (and troopers) through Ord Mantell since my first time playing the game and it's hella easier now that I know the layout of the area, but the first time?  *cringe*  And my first one was a trooper, not a smuggler.  I died more on her than my smuggler lol.

Hear, hear. My first few hours in Ord Mantell were so embarrasing I'd like not to think about it too much... ^^; Hehe, I see - then I'm pretty sure I would've failed even if I had chosen some other class aside from Smuggler. :XD:

I don't remember things being this difficult when I ran it with my potential gunslinger. Then again, I may have been a little too overpowered....

Isriana Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, like I said this was my first character (and by that I mean I was literally fresh out of tutorial, still trying to remember whether to left or right click stuff and such, lol) so it really was this difficult for me... :XD: I'm sure that if I made another Smuggler right now the whole Ord Mantell wouldn't be such an ordeal simply because now I'd know to avoid most of those rookie mistakes I did the first time around. Still, I think Smuggler really isn't the easiest possible class to start with. I went for Smuggler/Scoundrel and quite honestly it was bit of a struggle until level 15 or so - mainly because it took me a while to learn how to make most of Smuggler's class abilities, but also because at that point Underworld Medicine and lots of other skills began to improve.

My first was my Jedi Shadow, but I made my Gunslinger right after. Back then, I was a F2P player, so I could only make two. Still, I had a relatively easy time with my smuggler. I even had the balls to fight the world boss somewhat solo. Even with all the lag I normally get, I still survived and reaped the benefits.

Well, cheers for you! :D I'm just saying that when you pick a character class that can neither take or do as much damage as many others, it's easy to mess it up - which is what I've been doing apparently. XD

I went through this phase too, it first was "Why did I say I'd do this blindfolded!? It's not that easy at all!" to "The why don't you do it if it's so important, instead of relying on a random smuggler that might take whatever you want and sell it off for more than what you pay?"

Good times, good times :)
