    I have now played JK and two trooper for different gender. One for Aric and the 2nd for Elara.

    I played on tuesday with my 2nd trooper and it went well for Elara. I took a picture and showed it for Charles on Twitter and swtor and they liked it that I want more story with my trooper.
    I did only bad things for Lormen to make him as a slave. "It is Minister Lormen!" and the 2nd to have Lord Dramath with me against Vaylin.

    I played today JK and it was nothing more special in the end with Elara and JK. I thought like Kaliyo Aric Vette and Torian that you could do the Iokath missions with Elara but just Theran and no one else.

    For the 1st trooper that I wait and watched her talk to Elara and she mentioned as a surpries bad things about Zakuul. My trooper are not Elara:s Commander.
    Where can I see a list about how and where I choosed bad things? Can I do War on Iokath again?
    I can take Elara from the terminal but she wrote good things in the mail about my alliance.
    Elara is like Koth when bad things is happening then they don't want to be with you anymore.

    I think about this and I am very happy about my 2nd trooper to continue the romance with Elara.
    The other romances with Kaliyo Vette Aric and Torian looks normal and Elara are different.
    I guess update 5.3 will be released in June not later.

    I just finished the Iokath expansion on my Knight, who sided with the Republic. I had an odd niggling that I made the wrong choice.

    Anyone notice that Dorne literally just disappeared after her first cutscene? Never saw her again. I have her as my companion right now but she was literally nowhere to be seen the whole entire story. I saw Quinn more than her (and speaking of Quinn, he just kind of disappeared, too!). :confused:

    Didn't they say there was going to be more Iokath story? Maybe they'll show up there. I'm just happy my trooper has all of havoc back together. :)

    Actually, Raf, I've been playing since before launch--was in Beta. SoR had a ton of bugs, but given the relative size and scope of download (it was an official expansion after all with 8 hours of gameplay, 2 flashpoints, 2 new worlds, and 2 new operations), I can forgive them.

    This is merely an update--1 new daily zone, 1 hour of story, and 1 ops boss.

    And the quality of it has been largely unacceptable. It's the buggiest update I've experienced.

    Yup, we can only speak with Elara after the story content if we play as Trooper. The same goes with Quinn and Sith Warrior (here we can speak to Quinn even if we joined the Republic).

    I am wondering how Jaessa will think about it when SW are joining with the Republic and she were a former Jedi.
    It might be possible for her to go back again.

    About the person who is behind this plot on Iokath to have a new Galactic war between Empire and Republic.
    The person who is the saboteur are not alone and three characters Malgus Satele and Garza might be suspicious to do this kind of plot.
    It might also be Jadus and he could be working with Raina Temple because she is an professional agent and fit for the hidden dark robe for sabotaging the Gods.

    I red from swtor forums about Kira. That Kira can do this with an order from the Emperor Valkorion but he is dead and she should not feel anything from him like Arcann said to the Outlander.

    I haven't made my decision yet.

    I can't get the fact I'm best friends with Theron and possibly killing his father.

    But could I betray Lana?

    Would she forgive me for siding against the Empire?

    Honestly, this is just a poorly done expansion regardless, and it's really showing some of the issues with making this a MMO while trying to do a RPG.

    TBH Theron doesn't even really care that much, from what I can tell. And Lana barely blinks if you turn against Acina. At this point, their loyalties to their former governments are completely severed; I think they're 100% on your side, no matter what.

    I think the story is better siding with the Empire, more emotional especially for Theron. I think it is just a really good tale and I honestly don't think I will side with the Republic for anyone other then the trooper (my trooper hates traitors and loves Elara)

    Now this is fun - you can play as TYTH on Iokath (in daily missions)
    Show Spoiler




    As others have said both Lana and Theron are loyal to the Alliance (even if they are still more or less biased towards the Empire or the Republic).

    My JK joined the Sith Empire for more "drama". Still, he was not happy with Acina and her "crush these republic dogs" attitude (to be honest Malcolm's attitude towards Imperials is not much better).

    I'm guessing the traitor is Sane-Rae, Malgus (back from the dead), or some new character. Any of the three could work--depends on the execution.

    Sadly, my faith in the team over there has been pretty well shaken.

    Well that's sneaky. Are we to take it that the named NPC is not the traitor, or are we chasing them as we follow them?

    The Umbara flashpoint is honestly the last straw for me. If they can deliver solid content and story that makes sense within the larger narrative, then I'll stick with SWTOR. If not, it's time for me to move on.

    That stated, the leaked files above look promising. And a Manaan stronghold would be fantastic.

    The new update (5.2.2), which is coming in June will give us the opportunity to customize Theron’s outfit.

    They are also trying to make it possible to have weapons as a part of our outfits (TBD).

    Saw that--all exciting changes. If the Umbara flashpoint is well made, the Gods of the Machine op keeps going smoothly with the new bosses, and they can fix some bugs every update or so, I'll be feeling better about the direction of the game. The Manaan stronghold is just great though---really excited about that.

    I've heard we're getting a Zakuul stronghold too.
