SWTOR Sith Warrior Class Review

This will be a quick SWTOR Sith Warrior Class review. If you ever wanted to play Darth Vader then the Sith Warrior is for you. They are the Empires strong arm and use their lightsabers along with heavy armor that is equipped with experimental technologies that enhance their strength and powers to get the job done. The Sith Warrior uses their negative emotions to fuel their powers and can effortlessly defeat multiple opponents at once.

The starting abilities of the Sith Warrior are:

  • Assault: A series of quick melee attacks.
  • Vicious Slash: Deals high damage to a single opponent.
  • Force Charge: Jump to a target stunning them and dealing low damage.
  • Channel Hatred: Restores health over 15secs (must be out of combat).
  • Unnatural Might: Increase your own and any party member’s melee, ranged, and force abilities for a limited time.

The Sith Warrior has 2 advanced classes, the Juggernaut and the Marauder.

The Sith Juggernaut wears heavy armor and uses a single light saber. They use the Force to become almost invulnerable in combat and to manipulate their opponents with their Fear and Darkside auras. The Juggernauts have 2 main skill trees, Vengeance and Immortal.

Vengeance is the dps tree. This tree gives you the ability to use the Force to charge your lightsaber to unleash heavy damage or to make your Force Charge grant Unstoppable which reduces damage by 20% and gives immunity to movement impairing effects for 4 seconds.

Immortal is the tanking tree. This tree has Invincibility which reduces damage by 60% for 9 seconds and Revenge which has a 50% chance to reduces the rage cost of your next Force Scream or Smash by 1 after a successful parry, deflection, shielding or resisting an attack.

The Sith Marauder wields dual lightsabers and is a pure dps class. They have 2 main skill trees, Annihilation and Carnage.

Annihilation has Annihilate which is an instant ability that hits the opponent with both lightsabers and decreases the cooldown of your next Annihilate by 1.5 seconds. They also have Inescapable Torment which inflicts extra damage from bleed effects to choked opponents for 15 seconds.

Carnage has the Ataru Form which increases your accuracy by 3% and successful melee attacks have a 20% chance to grant an additional force strike. Their other ability is Gore which causes Impale to attack with both lightsabers.

Both classes share the Rage skill tree that gives greater control of the Force and mastery of the Shii-Cho form.

All the classes in SWTOR have up to 5 companions that act as their crew. They can be assigned task such as crafting gathering, and going on missions to supply your character with resources to use or sell. The Sith Warrior Class companions are:

WoTLK Guide Review – Zygor WoTLK Guide

There’s a new wave in the WoW 1-80 leveling guide collections. There are two recently released guides from Zygor. One is especially crafted for Horde and the other is for Alliance players. The two separate guides are written to add more specialization to the instructions included, which is very important in the WoW game.

There seems to be a new guide being released for the World of Warcraft each week. This time around, there were two of them even. Some guides are not worth anybody’s time simply because they tend to ignore some important information. However, there are others that contain too much information that it overwhelms users. Too much data is almost impossible to pack together in a comprehensive guide. Zygor’s guides are very different through. This one is truly worth your time and your money.

The idea of having two different guides for the same quest is more than appealing. Indeed, the Horde and the Alliance require different sets of strategies. However, these guides were created in full detail, with both of them exceeding 300 information-filled pages. But more than just the guide that you have to read from cover to cover, Zygor has also created a map as an add-on to your game. This can make your questing twice as simple. Included in the map are gold guides. By using the guide and the special map together, you can actually build up on your wealth while you try to reach the power levels.

The details included in the two guides are fantastic. It covers all the important quests that gamers have to follow while playing the game. Compared to other guides of similar scope, Zygor’s guide would fair twice as much better. The author takes pain in removing all the quests that you don’t have to pursue as they would only take up most of your time and slow you down. There are also quests that provide very little reward in the end and as such, they are not worth your time either. The guide is especially created to take you to level 70 in less than eight days. That is, if you choose to follow every bit of instructions and recommendations in the book.

The guides also include the map-mod Cartographer. This program makes possible various map modifications to make it apt to your needs. Uploading the map-mod also allows you to follow all the things as indicated in Zygor’s leveling guides in a highly methodical manner. Each spot that you need to reach in the WoW game map can be set as waypoints. By doing so, you don’t have to open the map all the time just so you’ll know where you should be headed. By making a particular spot a waypoint even though it isn’t, the arrows would point to it directly, thereby showing you the right road to take.

Zygor’s guide provides gamers a complete walkthrough on the relevant parts of the game. This includes the starting area of the race. Whether you’re taking on alliance or horde, the guide covers both of these areas.

Joana’s WotLK Horde Leveling Guide Review – For Horde Players Serious About Leveling Fast

Reaching the level cap in World of Warcraft is going to take a lot longer now that Wrath of the Lich King has been released. For those players that insist on getting there as fast as possible, Joana’s WotLK Horde leveling guide helped me speed up my leveling quite a bit. Joana is well know for his 1-70 guide, and the latest 70-80 version includes a nice, new little feature.

This new feature is an in-game mod, or guide. You install this like you would any other addon for WoW. This mod allows you follow the guide using the game interface, rather than toggling back and forth between the game and a pdf file. The guide can be moved around on screen and minimized when not in use. This is my favorite feature of Joana’s guide as it really saves a lot of time and is easy to use.

Blizzard has said that leveling from 70-80 should take about the same amount of time that it took to level from 60-70 when the Burning Crusade expansion came out. With Joana’s WotLK Horde leveling guide, you can do it much quicker. There are a lot more options for leveling at the higher levels, especially with the two different starting zones in WotLK. Joana’s guide will save you a lot of time by showing you the exact quest paths to take and where you need to go to complete them. Everything is mapped out from quest givers, objectives, quest turn ins, and interactive map coordinates to make sure you can easily get to where you need to be.

Joana has always been big on videos, and he once again over delivers in that area. There are over 100 videos of demonstration for doing quests in Northrend, the new continent in World of Warcraft. These videos are very helpful and I love watching WoW videos and I know a lot of other players do also.

Fragger – Game Review

Remember the game worms? Remember how annoying it was to use the grenades? Well here you can relive your past. Fragger is an extremely straightforward grenade throwing game, but is there anything more to it? Let’s take a look and find out.

Fragger launches us straight in at the deep end, there is no story, no hello, no nothing. Harold Brenes (the creator) wanted to get straight down to some gaming, and who can blame him. The whole concept of Fragger is to throw grenades next to your enemies to blow them up; the challenge comes in with the map designs. Some enemies may be behind obstacles, while others may be in crevasses.

There are 30 levels to be played across 3 difficulty settings, normal, hard and elite. Each one can only be unlocked by finishing the previous one. The difference between the difficulty settings are the amount of grenades you are allowed to throw, for example, normal may give you 8 grenades, hard 6 and elite 3, this means you are required to be much more accurate on the higher difficulty settings. You can view the amount of grenades you have left in the top left hand corner of your screen. When you complete each setting you receive a nice firework display, and an additional reward for the next stage.

The controls are some of the most basic you will come across, direct your target with your mouse, and hold down the mouse button to generate power. Also some particularly handy controls, especially if you are as bad as me, are the R and space buttons. The R button resets the current level you are on, and the space bar just scraps that stray grenade you just threw.

As you progress through levels, each one is supposed to become harder than the last. For example, the first level is just one man in a big hole, and the last level comprises of several people in a barricaded house.

On most levels you can instantly work out your tactics, but on some later levels, you should always devise a strategy before throwing your grenades. You will often find that one target needs to be taken out before you can progress. However, while you may find some levels a pain, Fragger does not need to be anything more than a simple game, because of its addictive game play, and this is why it is such a popular game.

Facebook Game – Tennis Mania Review

Tennis is one of the sports which is worth playing either in real life or in a virtual one. In Tennis Mania, players will be thrown in with a ghost player (Real player skills being recorded by the server and then loaded as if you are playing with a real player) into a one to one match.

The game is straight forward and follows the rules of tennis, there will be fault and scoring accounted on where the ball lands. All player has to do is to ensure that the ball they hit landed on the other side of the court and hopefully do not get a fault.

The game play is rather easy as there are only 3 keys in use. The keys are consisting of the left and right arrow keys and the space bar. Running around the screen and getting a better position is rather useless in this game as I found that the AI can perform super accurate counter shot even you shoot it to the other side of the court. Furthermore, players will keep missing the tennis ball as it fly pass way over to the other side of the court. The game is rather one sided, it is very hard for me to score even one shot at times.

Graphic

Very plain and nothing much can be said about the graphic part.

Sound

No music, only sound of ball getting hit and bounce. This is rather disappointing.

Conclusion

I would really like to play tennis in Facebook, but Tennis Mania is not one of them. Aside from the game play not being balance, I also find that the application loves to publish your status of your wall and flood your friends’ Facebook walls as well. Avoid this game at all cause unless you really love tennis.

Rating to this game is a 1 out of 5.
