The Academy Ep 10 & 11 -“Gearing and Stat Optimization in 4.0”

Gearing and stats can be a confusing concept to a new player. This is just one more great benefit to follow The Academy series from swtorista. In the latest episodes, 10 and 11, she talks to us about these specific points. These are great episodes that delve more deeply into important aspects of enjoying SWTOR. If you know someone who is new to the game, or thinking of picking up SWTOR, we highly recommend you point them in the direction of the Academy. Even if you’ve been playing for a long time, you might still appreciate these videos so go ahead and give them a watch/listen.  Here’s what these two episodes are all about.

Gearing up your character can be one of the most daunting tasks in the game. The first half of this episode talks about how to mod your gear, and the second half talks about stat optimization – how to get the very best gear in the game for your character. [Stats start at 4:49 ]
The Academy is a series focused on the basics of SWTOR. If you want to listen to more, tune in to Ootinicast’s latest episodes.

So what do you think? Did you learn anything? Maybe you knew this already if you are a seasoned player but maybe you didn’t. or maybe there was something in there that triggered something about the game you may have forgotten. I know I’ve been there before where I forgot something that was kind of a newbie thing because it had been awhile. So good for new players, good for a refresher, and just interesting for anyone who loves and wants to support SWTOR.
