Episode 29

Passionately Casual Podcast Ep. 29: Huree Back, Jessie!

↓Press Play


A SWTOR Podcast for Unholy Alliance and Wookiee Mistake guilds on the Harbinger server. Our podcast is a proud member of MOG Nation!

With Jessie unavailable this episode but safe in Australia, it’s left to the boys to hold down the fort! We think we did a pretty good job. Our glorious episode graphic is testimony of the fact that we barely scraped by without Jessie!

oHFn7UuKThis week we sit down with Xam Xam and get her impressions of the latest game updates. We also talk about her experience with SWTOR as it has changed directions over the last five years, what it means to stay with the game despite friends moving on, and then about the possibility of them returning now that ops are back. Larry also brings episode 3 of In Character!

Find out more about our guild and our show at unholyalliance.org  or  wookieemistake.com (remember wookiee has 2 E’s) don’t forget to follow us on twitter @PC_Podcast.

Guild News

Remember, WOG has resumed running on Friday nights, so be sure to jump in! Redna has also started WIP nights (What is PVP). Signups for both are on the guild calendar.

February’s contest involves asking a companion or SWTOR NPC to be your valentine. Prizes are available for both the written and visual categories, so be sure to submit your entries by February 28th.


Sechari attended Bad Feeling’s Hung Jawa Junket and posted some pictures here.

And let us know what you think about SCORPIO! Is she chaotic evil, lawful evil, neutral evil, true neutral or something else? Mox posted the poll to Twitter and we had some fun with it before Alexander Freed straightened us out. Still, that didn’t stop Larry from geeking out and sharing some in-depth analysis. So who is winning the #skippyforSCORPIO war between Mox and Sechari? Probably Mox but Sechari won’t admit it!

Game News

Highlights in game news: 350% (I REPEAT, 350%!!) CXP until February 28th, and after that, 250% CXP until April 10th. Boosts are available from both the Cartel Market (100% CXP boost up to command rank 179 for 3 hours) and from the Token Vendor (100% CXP boost up to command rank 179 for 2 hours). The CXP weekly cap has also been elevated to account for all the CXP we’ll be raking in!


We also spend some time discussing odd changes to the minimap.

In Character

This week on In Character with Larry Everett, Larry discusses navigating the jargon of guild advertising on a roleplay server. Helpful as always to those looking to really dig into RP.

Community Highlights

Be sure to listen in on our interview with Xam Xam! Not only does she sport an accent waaay cooler than Sechari’s, she’s super tactful too and avoids falling into Sechari’s trap trying to get another vote for chaotic neutral! Be sure also to check out Xam Xam’s blog at xamxamsays.com and her Twitter account @Rach_Games.

Be sure also to check out the other great SWTOR/Star Wars podcasts, blogs, and YouTube channels this month!

Find This Week in Aurabesh’s expose on the Zakuulan script here.

It’s also worth keeping an eye on the musings of Alexander Freed as he lends both his vision and his artful writing to help build the new Star Wars canon.

The Usual Podcast with Marshall and Will is now being recorded live -so be sure to tune in and troll them! They are also running a contest in February. #swtorsuperhero


The Lisk shares something to think about in Substrate: Don’t Smirk.

Star Wars News

Jessie wanted to be sure we included this gem she found: The Star Wars Art of Terese Nielsen. And she’s not joking. It’s REALLY good! Here’s an example:

4 R

Oh and one more thing before we sign off: Episode 8, The Last Jedi, hits theaters in 310 days! That makes us more excited than Z0-OM meeting new droid fellows!

    Some thoughts:
    1- One boss at a time is not appealing to me, so I fall in that same category that Xam Xam’s friends are. If I was not playing the game currently, I would not feel encouraged to get back.
    2- Classes with poor aoe/dot outputs – most classes actually – will not do any dmg to a merc using that op healing reflect. Quite the contrary, you’re just wasting your time if you think that aoe will help. At least that’s what I think.

    Nice episode guys!
