  1. Yeah, I vaguely remember something about it, like it'll go, "Radiiiiooooo!" before you get any leads to the next mission. I zoomed past it on my current rogue because I was using 50% xp bonus.
  2. Playing only roguish missions is turning out to be more difficult to achieve than I had expected, because of the system of contacts needing to be introduced. Playing the mission arcs I have missed through Ouroboros is an option, but I'm hoping to level up my character by never having to do anything truly villainous while also doing the roguish mission arcs at the level they were intended. So far, I've been mixing in alignment missions to help with the feeling of being a rogue.
  3. I see, I'll try that. On a related matter, I was doing Alignment missions and the rogue choice really struck me as more villainous than the supposed villain choice - Smooth Metal. The text says the villain choice is to steal the rest of the rage-inducing metals and plant them all over the island to cause mayhem, but in-game, you only do the stealing part. The rogue choice has you lie and tout the metal as impervium, sell it to Blast Furnace who needs it to repair his armour, and then wait for a bounty from the RIP to put him down when he goes on a rampage. I feel that the rogue choice is more villainous, especially since I had learned from my hero alt that Blast Furnace needs his armour to keep himself from losing control and exploding. I picked the putative villain choice the next time I played this Alignment mission.
  4. My rogue is now level 23 and I've run into a problem with playing just rogue-like missions from roguish contacts. I often need to work for a certain contact before being able to get work from a roguish contact. For example, to get Operative Vargas, I need an introduction from Lorenz Ansaldo, who seems really villainous. Using the Find Contact button doesn't give me some of the roguish contacts. Is there a more direct way of getting contacts that I don't know about?
  5. I'm in Asia and the Canadian servers give me 340 ms while Reunion gives me 250 ms. I've lived with 250 ms from when I played SWTOR on West Coast servers, so Reunion plays fine for me.
  6. Thanks, everyone, I've got more clarity for my upcoming Rogue's career now!
  7. Thanks, @Chris24601, for sharing the ins and outs of leveling up a Rogue. I normally don't like failing missions, but I may just have to, to stick to being a Rogue. What is your opinion on the Patrons?
  8. Yeah, his backstory makes him seem the least villainous. But I have a lot of time to decide on the Patron.
  9. Ah ... and so far there are 2 such Rogue-only contacts? I hardly ever played Villains to 50 back then and I assumed Sciroco would be less villainous than the rest. Never expected Black Scorpion to be the least villainous of the bunch.
  10. Ah, I see. And there are dedicated Rogue contacts?
  11. Thanks for the list, @FoulVileTerror! Are Mr G's missions of Rogue alignment? I'm asking specifically about him because I left the game before his missions were introduced and they involve the goings-on in Praetoria.
  12. I'm thinking of starting a villain character that changes alignment to be a Rogue at 20 and from then on, only do Rogue-like story arcs, which are arcs that aren't evil, but are closer to the Rogue alignment. So, does anyone have any recommended contacts? Also, out of the 4 Patrons, which one is closest to the Rogue alignment?
  13. You have no idea how much of a revelation this is for me. I've always assumed that all the servers are in the same place. I live in Asia and I get very bad latency on Torchbearer. I'd assassinate an enemy and the game only tells me if he's dead or not a full second after the completion of the animation, for example. I then learned that the servers are in Canada, so I just shrugged and resigned myself to the poor latency. But the fact that Reunion is in a different location is a pleasant surprise. So, I hastily created a new character there and tested the latency with /netgraph 1 and compared it with a character on Torchbearer. Sure enough, on Reunion, I got 250 ms on average while on Torchbearer, it was 345. I got 100 ms less on a European server! Granted, Torchbearer was having medium load while Reunion was having light load. I may have to test again when Reunion has medium load. Now, I am seriously thinking of transferring all my characters over to Reunion. I may have to learn the do's and don'ts of transferring characters properly.
  14. I wasn't famous, just hoping to reconnect with the group I used to run with. Hey, Branche, Vincent, Shaman, are any of you guys here? It's me, Blue-Mirage!
