The Lord Of Pain Darth Sion: A Star Wars Story

Here’s another Star Wars story from The Scoundrel’s Cantina. It was first published back in Dec of 2016, but if you missed it back then, you can still give it a watch. We highly recommend any of these videos from the Scoundrel’s Cantina. They really know their Star Wars stuff, and the videos are well made. They’re entertaining, and very informative as you are sure to learn something new in every one you watch, even if you’re already a super fan. This one is all about another famous Darth – the Lord of Pain Darth Sion. He’s not as well known to your layperson as far as Darths go, but he has an interesting and deep history that is explored fully in this video. They use a mix of both the Expanded Universe and the “Official” Star Wars Canon. He was a human who became a Sith Maurader in the war. Rather than…

By dividing the original buffs among multiple Utilities and removing the stance requirement, we…

SWTOR: Marauder and Sentinel changes coming in game update 3.1.1

  Star Wars: The old Republic won’t see any changes to Marauder and Sentinel with game update 3.1, but rather 3.1.1. While this is not news worthy in it self, we find it quite interesting That Eric Musco posted this update.  BioWare does not usually provide set patch dates for specific class changes, but there is a first time for everything I guess. Check out the forum update below:   Sentinel and Marauder Changes | 01.16.2015, 09:45 AM Hey folks, We know there has been concern from the Sentinel and Marauder community about the status of their class, and when they might be receiving changes. Sents and Maras will see changes in update 3.1.1. As a secondary note, it is our plan that in some cases we will also put our minor patches (such as 3.1.1) on PTS. This way we can get some additional testing, especially around class changes. Thanks everyone!…
