Sales Runs

  • What is a sales run?
  • Sale runs – has Scya or Mal ever been on one?
  • Is that cheating?
  • Is it healthy for the game?
  • How about items like nightmare crystals?
  • Is SWTOR “pay to win”?


This week on You Can’t Make This Sith Up people on stealth classes who never sap. In a recent trip to the Red Reaper, a healer, whose name has been redacted to protect her cat, encountered a startling and disturbing phenomenon. You see, the flashpoint group included a scoundrel dps, a class celebrated both for making others “catch these hands” as well as their stealthing ability. Upon arriving at the first set of enemies that could be sapped and thus successfully passed by, the group waited eagerly as the scoundrel dropped into stealth, snuck up behind the enemy, and Back Blasted it….


Achievements Points

  • How many points do you have Scya? 

Mal: 54,015

Scya: 39,320, mostly from just trying to play different parts of the game

Mal: I really enjoyed doing the MM Uprisings.

Scya: My first-time hard mode ops achievements and the few nightmare ones I have

  • What are some of the most impressive achievements that you have?

Mal: All my nim Ops achievements and timer runs for sure.

Scya: Nothing as impressive as Mal has. But I’m really proud of my run through Master Mode Knights of the Fallen Empire and Eternal Throne.

  • When achievements were first launched how did that go? 
  • What do you really want to complete that you haven’t yet? 

Mal: 16m nightmare Ops (last 2 of DF, all of DP), DP timer, and nim Dxun. Also the MM Chapters

Scya: I want more of the nightmare mode achievements just so I look less like a scrub.
I’d love more of the “Possessions” achievements
