Deadly Planets

There was no level system in Star Wars Galaxies. A player trying to be a jack of all trades was unable to compete against other players who mastered their respective professions. There was a large discrepancy between a Master of a profession compared to one who was 99% of the way to earning the title.

Certain planets in the galaxy stand out as having the toughest environments. Rough terrain, elite level NPCs, and few outposts make planets like Dathomir and Dantooine part of the “end-game” for players seeking to obtain the rarest loot and kill the toughest monsters.

Star Wars Galaxies was a simple game. Fly to exotic worlds. Meet interesting things. Kill them. Get paid.

Choked by the Force for the First Time

My character's first encounter with The Force. I was wondering how my HAM bars disappeared, instead of dropping normally. Shit was crazy. There was a high concentration of Force-sensitive NPCs on Dathomir.

Gotep Vegitunks trained in the Commando profession, as commanded by a Holocron. Quenkers were a universally agreed upon good critter for XP when high kinetic Ubese armor is worn.

The Commando profession was an underdog for a many months until a buff gave them the ability to do extremely high burst damage. Commandos were specially designed to do blast damage, which was effective against AT-STs and AT-ATs.

Missile Launch

A Scout can mask his scent, allowing him to get in optimal distance of a critter. Kneeling lends more accuracy, especially for large weapons like the rocket launcher.

Crystal Valley, the city we built in the winter of 2003, was currently a Metropolis at the time of this screenshot.

Dathomir had some crazy ass creatures. Players less skilled in their professions have to travel in groups or they'll be killed by the numerous openly aggressive NPCs roaming the planet.
