This was Blaugust.

I just resub'd after a couple years. Getting my feet wet again by starting a brand new character. Only had one level 50, a Sith Sorcerer on Ebon Hand. His gear is pretty decent, no greens at all. Just stepped foot on Makeb tonight but didn't really do anything there but land. Currently playing my Jedi Consular who i'm taking dark side. Interested to see how his dark path differs from my sith.

I had a good experience when I returned after a break. It recharged my interest in the game. I like the GSI buffs on Makeb, just because they make things go much more smoothly. It took me a while to realize that I had to click on the special terminal to receive the buff, though. My Jedi Sage was the first character I took to max level so I'm with you on that class. On that first character, I made her all noble and went straight light side, so I've yet to see the dark Consular story. Hope you enjoy Makeb!

Some personal musings about whether characters can be anything other than simply a collection of statistics. Do Mages Dream of Digital Sheep?
