Back in the day when I played my Super Nintendo, I had games like Donkey Kong and Yoshi’s Island that kept track of your completion percentage for the different levels. I spent a lot of time making sure I got every coin, flower, or whatever was needed to fully complete the level. However, with SWTOR, surprisingly I did not have the same philosophy.
This may have been because the game was launched without an achievement tracking system, so I didn’t see the value in making sure I did everything. I simply played the game and did what I felt like doing.
With the upcoming advent of Game Update 2.9 Galactic Strongholds, it is more important than ever to make sure I’m getting my in-game achievements as close to 100% as possible! I want to have cool decorations obtained from completing different parts of the game. However, I honestly don’t care if anyone sees how good my Stronghold looks. I suppose I’ll probably take some screenshots for you readers here on the blog, but I don’t think I would like to publicly list my Stronghold.
These past few weeks I did try to fulfill a few achievements I didn’t have, like 16-man Eternity Vault Story Mode (surprisingly) and 100% companion kills on my Inquisitor. Apparently I don’t like to use Andronikos Revel ever! I also attempted to complete Korriban and Hutta to 100%, but somewhere along the way I got a bit lazy and/or couldn’t find what I was supposed to be killing.
Currently I have 10,000 achievement points. I have no idea how good that is since I’m comparing this number to friends with over 20,000 points, which is likely more than the average player. I’m looking forward to going back to old content to increase my number!
