all that Echani/Mandalorian stuff annoyed me.

Weapons (Y)

Gurges-Ahter 08-06-2008 09:45 AM

^^ Agreed - I don't enjoy non-weapon fighting at all. I mean, c'mon, it's a Star Wars game - - I HAVE to use a lightsaber. I was annoyed with any part of the game that I needed a ranged weapon - blasters are for my non-Jedi party members.

On the contrary, I enjoy (as a darksider) facing down hordes of attacking, blaster-wielding enemies with nothing more than a full force gauge and force lightning!:lightning

Gurges-Ahter 08-06-2008 10:58 AM

Yes, using force powers are fun too... I only meant I don't enjoy the hitting and kicking involved with hand-to-hand combat when compared to wielding a lightsaber. As a LSer, I almost always have Kreia or Visas in my party to do the fun DS force powers. I usually start with a force wave of my own, set a few saber attacks, switch to Visas/Kreia and unleash DS force power fury. For the smaller battles I typically just go lightsaber with the occasional force usage for fun.

Yes, I agree. The hand-to-hand combat animations leave a good deal to be desired - especially that flurry animation where the character spins in the air!:lol:

The whole unarmed specialist feats were just a pointless bunch of crap. If I had a choice between unarmed and ONE bonus feat of choice... wouldn't give the unarmed thing a second thought.

Brianna was an Echani, but her training didn't extend beyond hand-to-hand. C'mon! I never event bothered to have her fight unarmed because hand-to-hand at its best didn't match a lightsaber at its worst.

Same thing goes for great items that can't be upgraded. I would rather have an upgradable vibrosword than the higher end, but not upgradable versions.

Yeah, and you could get those "Unarmed Accuracy Gloves." it's like... when are you ever unarmed in the game, apart from the first part of Telos?!

If I had people with blasters/lightsabers pointing my way, I'm hardly going to be all noble and say "how about a sparring match?" fact is - lightsabers are just always used. :^:

Gurges-Ahter 08-06-2008 01:01 PM

The only other time after Telos is in the ring against the Mandalorians, but it's certainly not difficult or significant enough to warrant specialization/equipment for it.

Sgt. Strike 08-06-2008 01:19 PM

If you use mods, or even just pick up stuff at random, sometimes you pick up some nice equipment to use in unarmed combat. However, myself, once I get things right, I just use stealth and use dominate mind, I think. Whichever of the force powers allows me to make one enemy into one of my allies, for a short while. It's fun collecting the xp from them, until they get themselves kilt.

TKA-001 08-06-2008 02:13 PM

I wonder if the developers really thought for a second that anyone was going to have Handmaiden fight unarmed rather than with her staff thingy.

bally3000 08-06-2008 03:17 PM

i love fighting unarmed its funny when a load of enemys run at you with blasters and sword s and u kick there arses literally with hand to hand. but when i get my light saber i quickly change cause it is more fun that way lol, force chocking is fun too tho =]

I rather like those gloves... they fetch quite a bundle or components or credits. I never used the worthless things... that's what the lightsaber is for.

bally3000 08-06-2008 05:20 PM

i never really sold or made stuff into conponants and i never made anying with the lab or work bench to be honest i just tended to use wht i got lol

I sold like everything. I'd just get everyone to become a Jedi, and sell the armour. Some of that stuff cost a lot.

I sold a lot in K1, but I never had much need for credits in TSL. My first play-through I was hoarding all of my credits in case I wanted to buy something really expensive (like the crazy crystals in K1 - heart of the guardian, etc), but that opportunity never came in TSL. I just ended up with a ton of credits.

SW01 08-06-2008 06:52 PM

Honestly, I use KSE or the workbench to get all of the items I want (I standardise equipment!)

The unarmed combat is never used in my game - I always use force powers or swords and blasters as needed until I get a lightsabre.

Gurges-Ahter 08-06-2008 10:50 PM

I used the workbench quite a bit too, although I found it more of a nuisance than anything else. I mean I guess the upgrades were worth it, but it was annoying to have to do it. Perhaps I'm just lazy.

It was much better than K1. Those upgrades were worth almost nothing to blasters and melee weapons. I liked how you could modify the enhancement and have another resource to manage other than credits.

I always used the workbench. I loved upgrading weapons and armour, it made me feel secure :^: maybe I'm just a nerd.

Gurges-Ahter 08-06-2008 10:59 PM

That's true - I should also mention that my first playthrough (I'm barely into my 2nd) was limited in time allotted for me to play. I basically had 4 nights to finish it. I was able to (it took me 55 hours over those 4 nights), and I didn't want to miss anything, so time consuming things (like manually leveling up each NPC and using a workbench or labstation) sometimes got on my nerves.

BTW, I was out of town on a business trip when I played the 14 hrs per day.

bally3000 08-07-2008 06:15 AM

i made a long sword with it once but that was it TBH oh and bought some mandalorian amour and light saber cristals but all i ever bought really. i use the lab more than the work bench for making stuff, but i upgrade quiet often =] i like to get the best out of my weapons ;]
