Bounty Hunter Beta Impressions – Early Level Gameplay

Posted Wed, Nov 30, 2011 by jeffprime

The Bounty Hunter is a versatile class in The Old Republic and a fine choice for players looking to go toe-to-toe with Jedi scum. Some of the Bounty Hunter’s core abilities continue to make an impact upon gameplay even after following an advanced career. Join Ten Ton Hammer as we look at the early level gameplay of the Bounty Hunter.

As a Bounty Hunter, you start out on a trash heap of a planet, Hutta. Your goal is to join the Great Hunt, and to do that, you’ll need the sponsorship of the local Hutt lord, Nem’ro. You’ll travel through polluted wastelands collecting bounties and enhancing your street cred, whilst also gaining new abilities and improving upon those abilities. When your Bounty Hunter finishes his quests on Hutta and leaves (around level 10), he can choose an advanced class of either Mercenary or Powertech.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
