Welcome to the Cantina

“Here goes nothing.” – Lando Calrissian

If you’re reading this then one of two things happened, you had a hankering for some sangria and Google directed you here instead of to your local Mexican bar, or you happen to be a big Star Wars/MMO fan who, like me, is anxiously awaiting the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Either way, welcome to the Cantina!

Now before I begin writing about the good stuff, like story driven content, operations, war zones, companions, titles and such, I ask that you bear with me as I go through some formalities, i.e., the obligatory who am I, introductory post.

I write under the name Darkbrew. If you play World of Warcraft, then you’ve probably visited my companion blog, The Brew Hall, or listened to me talk about Hunters on The Hunting Party Podcast (Bah, who am I kidding, you’ve probably done neither of those things).

Yes, I’m an avid WoW player that enjoys end-game raiding, min/maxing, and theory crafting. I’m also a big Star Wars fan, and my first MMO experience was with Star Wars Galaxies. Now I’m turning my sights to SWTOR. Am I hoping it will be WoW but in the Star Wars universe? No, I’m just hoping it will be an awesome Star Wars MMO that I can enjoy with friends for a long time.

Despite having zero hands on experience with SWTOR, I’ve pre-ordered the game and opted to blog about it anyway. As much fun as I’ve had playing WoW, participating in the extended WoW community has been nothing short of awesome, and I look forward to having that same experience here. Well enough babble, time for a real post.

May the Force be with you!


  1. Darkbrew!

    It’s a nice surprise to totally stumble upon a familiar old Hunter sharing some new community love for swtor! I will be sharing my view of the game from the Trooper perspective, and I can’t wait to hear more from you in regards to your travels once the game launches!

    Great post, hope to see some more updates soon!

    1. I suspect that there will be a bunch of us WoW folks giving SWTOR a look. I’m glad you’re able to decided on class at this early stage, I’m still pondering those options. At the moment Smuggler and Imperial Agent are calling out to me, heh.
