Greetings all.

I just found out about SWGs this week and I have been trying to learn everything i can about it asap. I can't wait to get my hands on this game, i dont know how all of you who have known about it sinse the beginning have been able to wait for so long ;) props to you

anyway i have a bunch of questions, i've found the answers to some by researching numerous forums and sites. I'll just ask one for starters, because i'm sure you are all sick of answering newbie questions.

here goes: i saw that you can equip numerous items, like 2 rings, 3 levels of jackets, wrists, shins, etc...is there any word if there are magical mods to items (like diablo2) or are they just defense pts and for looks?

thanks a bunch, see ya's soon

Welcome and enjoy the stay.

And I hereby place you under the protection of the NLF, so no .... wait a minute, there's no need for that here ... I forgot this isn't the SWG Forums over at the Station. :D

Nevermind, just Welcome then!!! :cool:

May the force be with u, as long as it dont leaves me

Well, I said welcome to you on your other topic, so here I'll just give you a big old HOWDY!

I doubt if there will be magical mods to the items. It's Star Wars not a fantasy universe, so there is no magic. If there's any special properties there will probably be technological reasons for them.

Oh, here's a tip to help wait out the time until release that's worked for all of us. Take up dancing.

Yeah, I agree with Mike, there won't be magical stuff. However there will probably technilogical things, like he said (ie mechanical pants that make you run faster)

they might make-up things just for a game like iof your a vertain guy...bonus to wokkies here blah b;ah blah or extra skill thingy for zabraks blah blah blah but its all just speculation

ok, didnt know if it was mentioned somewhere that i had missed...

perhaps items like rings will have boosts to strength, or pools or something. Perhaps to heal faster. What else would the 2 ring slots be used for, they wouldn't add much to your char's appearance.

You never know, they could be signet rings or identification rings that allow you to enter high-security areas.

Give in to the insanity. It is unreasonable, but it is your destiny!

Hi Saiyan22! I think you've been welcomed enough, so I won't welcome you ;)
Since you've been doing some research on Galaxies, have you decided what type of character you'll be playing as?

Greetings Saiyan22, welcome to the forum!

There will probably be no such thing as 'magical' rings, but I think they might give you acces to certain areas (as mentioned before) or show your alligiance with a clan or something like that. Or maybe even little transmitters, or homing devices for your vehicles, or distress beacons or....or ......

Or maybe......they have a cherry inside, that you can nibble on while you are in transit to another world.

Who knows?

Who knows, maybe a conceiled blaster? :)

Welcome @ the board.

maybe there for "ring pops" in case you get hungry on a long journey ;)

05-14-2002, 03:35 PM
thanks for the warm welcome

as to what type of character i'll be making:
probably a warrior/soldier type, not nesessarily bounty hunter but if give bonuses maybe...after diablo2 got boring, I started making duelers with friends and that was a lot of fun :lsduel: ... so i'll probably go the route of the warrior...and if luck permits...eventually jedi:syoda: gotta stay optimistic :cool:

heh, despite the facts given, i remain optimistic to one day becoming a jedi, until then i can explore other professions...

sinse you can reallocate skill pts, perhaps i will move from perfession to perfession...maybe a tattoo artist to give myself a buff tattoo ;) then make myself some nice clothes, then time to move on again...etc

its really hard to say before the game comes out, until then I picture myself as a jedi:D (it could happen)

Hmmm, I hope so too actually, but don't tell anyone ;)
A well, maybe I'll be a warrior. And with my other char Droid maker, Clothes maker, Tattoo-artist.

Or hairdresser, but that's not for sure yet :p

Darth Maxx - do you want to groom my wookiee? ;)

Thats a leading question...
