Main Character Name: I have 2 main characters - Arvenia and Wopegia
Forum Handle: Arvenia
Discord Handle: Arvenia#0190
Player Association: Sentinels of New Dawn [Dawn]. Also [STAR], but I’ve created this one with Wopegia, simply to honor my old entertainer guild from Europe-Chimaera. [Dawn] is like a family to me, full of old friends and newly found ones.
Where in the RL world do you live? Eastern Europe, Bulgaria, in a city of 8000 years of history, nowadays called Plovdiv
How long did you play the live version of Star Wars Galaxies? I started late, in 2007, and played almost till the shut-down. Due to some problem with my debit card I’ve missed the last months. It broke my heart even more, that I couldn’t be there at the very end.
I started playing because of 2 friends of mine. We shared this addiction to the Star Wars Universe and they kept saying “You have to play SWG with us!” I’ve never played any video game before, so I kept saying “No!”. Well, as you can see, they have won :D
What type of work do you do? I work in the local customs, at the front office. Nothing really exciting, but it doesn’t engage my brain too much, so I have time to make plans for the things I wanna do in game, when I’m back home.
What does a typical Star Wars Galaxies day consist of for you? I like getting up as early as 6 in the morning, so I can have some time in the game before I head to work. I’m usually checking my harvesters, working in my beast lab or even decorating, while having my morning coffee.
In the evening, when I’m back home, I’d start with checking my trader mails, restocking if needed, then I’d do all different kinds of things - questing, decorating, or just chatting. During the weekends, I’d do some heroic runs with the guild, or some other instances that require a group, basically spending more time in guild activities.
What was the race and profession of your very first character? My very first character was Wopegia - a zabrak entertainer. Later on, I found out most of the entertainers were twi’lek, which made me even more happy about my choice. I like to be different :D
What is the one thing you’ve always wanted to be in Star Wars Galaxies that isn’t or is no longer? A real Teras Kasi combat profession. Drama entertainer is as close as it can get and fun, but still not the same.
What other hobbies or activities do you take part in, other than playing Star Wars Galaxies?
I love travelling abroad. I’ve been missing that so much during this year, due to the unfortunate situation we all in at the moment. Other than that, I like listening to loud music (usually metal), watching movies, drawing with pencil (mostly fantasy characters inspired by Star Wars and Lord of the rings)
What race and profession is your main character?
As I mentioned above, I consider 2 of my characters as main - my zabrak entertainer Wopegia and my human Jedi Arvenia.
What do you like most about the profession you have chosen for your main character? About the entertainer - well ..everything :D The first thing I fell in love with was the dancing, but I also love the ability to image design and buff players. I find this amazing. About the Jedi - saber wielding I suppose :D Joke aside, I like that I have to put some additional work (compared to the other combat professions) to improve my character. I mean all this hologrind, the search for good crystals and pearls, the preparation to fight the npc at the statues. I don’t mind seeing even more hardships for the Jedi added.
What faction is your main character? Both are Rebel (Sorry M’ak :D)
What is your favourite player owned ship? I’m not much of a space girl, but I do like my Naboo N-1 Starfighter.
What is your favourite ground vehicle? I have a few favourite, but let’s say the RIC-920 Rickshaw
How did you choose your main character's name? Wopegia’s name was just randomly generated. I had no idea what name to put, so I just scrolled through the generator. I must say she wasn’t only my first character in SWG, but also my first character ever, in any game :D
What is your favourite planet and/or city and why? Oh, it’s Naboo! The green cover everywhere and the architecture makes it look so pretty. There is one thing I hate about it though - the snakes, or so called rawls in here lol I don’t even mind the peko peko albatrosses so much, even though they kill my innocent traders way too often...My favourite city, well that’s certainly Theed. Amazingly pretty architecture and it feels like a capital more than any other city in the game.
What is your favourite NPC? The old republic ship AI! It makes me giggle each time I do The Champion of Mustafar questline.
What are the most credits you have ever spent on purchasing a single item for one of your characters? I don’t remember the exact amount of credits, but in live I’ve spent hundreds of millions for 2 paintings - Dusk in Kachiro and Portrait of a female zabrak (not sure if this was the exact name). In SWG Legends - about 50 mil for a nice jedi crystal. I’ve started playing only 1 year ago and can’t afford to throw too much credits yet, but when I can I would pay hundreds of millions for a nightsister armguard hehe. I’m missing my old one so much!
What do you like best about SWG Legends? I like everything! The ability to play this amazing game again, after thinking it was all lost. The new content you are constantly adding. I was so pleasantly surprised to find the game in this state, and it is all thanks to the amazing team you have. I love you so much, guys and girls! :)
Describe your best experience playing Star Wars Galaxies. The first Cantina Crawl I’ve ever participated in. It blew my mind seeing so many people, dressed in the same colours dancing for hours. In life these were even cross server events, as some people would remember. I’m glad me and Nikoline managed to revive this nice tradition from live, and it makes me extremely happy that people are still enjoying it.
What is your favourite questline and/or place within Star Wars Galaxies and why? Witches of Dathomir. Because I like the witches and I like the potted plants, the clothes and the decorations I can get from them :D
Thank you very much for taking the time to answer our questions!
May the force be with you,
