Ding! 50!

It took me 6 months, but I have finally leveled a character in SWTOR to 50, the current max level. Here she is, my new level 50 Jedi Sage:

To commemorate this event, I thought I'd share some screen shots from my adventures (excuse the low quality video settings--my computer system isn't that great). Cue the nostalgic music...

Overlooking the sarlacc pit
Reenacting The Lion King. If only I could have zoomed out more, it would be clearer that I'm on a narrow rock outcropping.
Speeder surfing (a fun glitch I got once)
My pet orokeet races to keep up with my speeder, like in that imprinted duckling video
Tattooine's twin suns
I loved Alderaan, especially for those sweeping thranta rides.
Reclining in the Alderaan palace throne room. I could get used to this.
Upon reaching level 40 (and all levels other than 50), the achievement was greeted by droids carrying a banner that says "Congratulations" (in this shot, it actually says "tulations con", but just picture it scrolling). Not sure why they thought level 50 deserved less celebration.
Hoth: cold, but in some places strikingly beautiful.
Lightsabers are great, but sometimes you need a big gun.
Portrait shot of my Sage on the bridge of her ship, from the load screen
I still haven't finished my class storyline--two more planets to go, I think. Then there are all the hardmode flashpoints and operations to improve my gear and hone my skills. No rest for the Jedi. But it has been, and continues to be, a fun, exciting journey.

ahh I should take some screenshots of my SWTOR character! I honestly haven't played in at least a month...I've been SO busy with work and whatnot. sigh. but I really really mean to play tonight or tomorrow night! My smuggler is only like level 24, but I have a Jedi Knight character that I need to work on. so we'll see :)

I'm excited about the new group finder function in 1.3. Should be so much easier to do flashpoints, now.

Awesome to see that your enthusiasm is as strong as the first day you started playing =)

I had to take a break from the game for a whle, but with all the new updates and improvements I am eager to return soon!

Your character is looking pretty badass too!

Yeah, I'm still having fun! I think they've made a lot of improvements, and with the server transfers and group finder, the multi-player aspect of the game should be much stronger.

Still don't have a guild, though. Once I'm through with the class story, I'll probably need a guild to do all the hard mode flashpoints and operations and such.
