SWTOR Escape Pod Cast

Recommended Posts

Hi team! I wanted to drop a thread here to introduce our podcast, give you some background, and announce new episodes.

 

@AIESema and I (@MaxTheGrey) play on Jedi Covenant, both Imperial and Republic, as part of the Alea Iacta Est gaming community. Inspired by our favorite SWTOR podcasts, we've started a weekly cast to lightly cover the latest news and mostly focus on a rotating segment covering some aspect of the game.

 

You'll be able to find new episodes and a show summary every Tuesday at NewOverlords.com

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 17 – Reputation

 

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-17 bring you news about Life Day and the Return of the Gree. We also offer up some quick tips for the week on Galactic Starfighter (like how to re-order your ships and why you shouldn't focus on kills) and we crack open a holocron on the basics of the reputation system.

 

Oh... and laying ceramic floors on ice planets is a tough job because it's difficult working in a Hoth-tile environment. (We fully apologize for the quality of these jokes. We'll see to it that the writer is promptly sacked.)

 

The reputation tools and links referenced in the podcast include:

The maximum weekly turn-in chart: http://www.newoverlords.com/calculate/swtor-rep-maximizer/

The cumulative rep tracking spreadsheet: http://www.newoverlords.com/calculate/swtor-reputation-calculator/

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 18 – Two Year Anniversary

 

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-18 are joined by @AIEMachia to talk about the two year anniversary for SWTOR and AIE in SWTOR. We also offer up some quick tips for the week on Galactic Starfighter and, of course, cover what we have been up to.

 

And… Life Day is pretty much just like the Rakghoul Pandemic but with snowballs exploding in your face for prizes instead of other players exploding in your face. Oh, and a bit less vomiting.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 24 – 2014 Roadmap Discussion

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-24 bring you a futures discussion based on the 2014 Roadmap blog post. We also talk through the Q&A from the Phoenix Cantina Tour meet-up and cover the final details on the patch released today.

 

Radical speculation: Given how much the new KDY Orbital Lifter looks like it was based on a submarine research vessel we are quite sure that the next planet coming this year will be a water planet!

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 26 – Tips for Flashpoint Success

Rumors we've heard (lies!): Next evolution of tactical flashpoints will be tactless flashpoints. The bosses will bluntly tell you when you are doing it wrong… and that your gear looks funny.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast #27: Scoundrel-Operative Healing

 

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey, Sten of AIE and Astromech EPC-27 talk about some of the trick of the trade for Operative/Scoundrel healers. We also cover news for the week from SWTOR in general and from AIE in SWTOR. Of course, you'll also hear what we have been doing lately.

 

Rumor we wish was true: The next major expansion will feature a new race and class. The Kanaydian race will be able to roll as either the Imperial Goalie or Republic Lumberjack and will politely use variations on melee weapons. This race is not your buddy, pal.

http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-escape-pod-cast-28-datacrons/

Rumor we wish was true: In the summer expansion there will be a new "+11 to all stats" datacron. It will take 11 people to attempt and will take 11 hours to complete. It will be awesome because… it goes to 11.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 31 - Galactic Stronghold Housing

 

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-31 collect all the news and rumors about the Galactic Stronghold hosing announcements and comb through them for everything we can find. We also cover news for the week from SWTOR in general and from AIE in SWTOR. Of course, you'll also hear what we have been doing lately.

 

Space lie of the week: With the Galactic Stronghold expansion, Agents and Smugglers will gain the Burgle ability. This will allow them to break into strongholds, ransack decorations, and rummage through your personal under armor drawer. This can be countered through the use of Guard Akk Dogs.

We also cover news for the week from SWTOR in general and from our guild, Alea Iacta Est in SWTOR. Of course, you'll also hear what we have been doing lately.

 

Anti-April Fools Actual Truth: For those newer to the Star Wars expanded universe, there are a series of books that cover "The Old Republic" as an era in Star Wars lore. The Old Republic: Revan in particular is an interesting lead-in to the current setting in SWTOR. You can find details at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_wars_books#Old_Galactic_Republic_Era

Our Wish of the Week: Multi-person mounts! Awesome speeders like the new Desler we see in the Boston Cantina screenshots should really hold two people. Also, if no other player is hitching a ride then your active Companion can sit in the passenger seat.

Our Wish of the Week: I'm on a Boat! With the expected coming of Manaan, we think it's about time that boats are added to SWTOR. There's a whole market of adaptive gear and emotes that could certainly follow. So yeah… get your towels ready.
