Galactic Starfighter Expert Scout Guide

So you want to play the Scout class in The Old Republic’s latest expansion? There are a few guidelines to set forth before we get to the meat of the guide. First of all the Scout class is a dagger class, you need to get in quick and get out quick, and the best damage comes from getting up close. To have any real chance of taking out an enemy, especially a better armored one than yourself you need to be within about five thousand meters from the enemy ship. You are given the Blackbolt/NovaDive free of charge and must unlock the Sting/Flashfire but be aware that the two scout ships do not play exactly alike.

Enter Galactic Starfighter

I love the Galactic Star Fighter expansion for The Old Republic. It’s unexpectedly fun. PVP has always been something of a bane for me. Its hardcore enthusiasts will be first to get the best gear and the best accessories. In most games that means coming in later takes a lot of gumption. You have to ready to eat the dirt a lot to gain the skill and the gear to compete. Enter GSF.

The Fan

As I read comment section after comment section, I have come to realize that usually the most vocal MMO gamers are not actually fans of Role Playing Games. RPG’s are all about combat, loot, level progression, story and rinse and repeat. It’s its purest form the RPG is grind, loot, story and repeat and it’s a diagram that has been repeated by Massively Multiplayer Online RPG’s as well. The shell may differ from game to game but each MMORPG looks the same when broken down.
