Reminder: Cube World Beta Downloads are Scams

Cube World Scams

Just a friendly reminder: All links claiming to have Cube World’s beta for download are scams. The game hasn’t been released in any way shape or form into the wild yet. Wollay even claims on his blog that anything claiming to be a beta is a scam.

I decided to try some digging to see how many are out there claiming to have the beta for download. There are several Youtube videos that claim to have the beta in the description but all the links are to downloads requiring a purchase or survey first (obvious scam is obvious). They don’t show ratings and comments are approval only so there’s definitely not going to be any negative comments about it being a scam allowed. There are a few random blogspots out there that do the same. I tried reporting them all and flagging them as malicious, but they’re just going to crop up again somewhere else.

Just a reminder: If you really want a beta, follow Wollay on Twitter or his Blogspot and keep an eye here because we’ll be letting you know when a Beta really does get released.

 

UPDATE: The alpha version is out and you can buy it from Wollay’s site. Check out our new post on this for more details.

SWTOR: Legacy System Now Live

SWTOR Legacy System

The new Legacy System is a pretty unique addition to SWTOR that a lot of players have really been looking forward to and with the 1.2 patch live, that means we get to see what all the fuss is about.

The Legacy System allows players to create a family tree of characters. Once your character has completed their Chapter 1 storyline, they will be able to choose a Legacy “Last Name.” This Legacy last name must be unique and is shared across all characters on that server.  Once you have unlocked your Legacy, any and all characters on that server will now contribute to that player’s Legacy Experience Points. Much like normal xp, when you reach certain Legacy thresholds, you will increase your Legacy Level. These levels unlock various rewards.

By completing all the Chapter 2 quests you will unlock your classes buff on all other alts. You will also unlock class specific emotes. Completing Chapter 3 with your character will unlock that classes special ability to all classes to be used during Heroic moment. These unlocks have no legacy requirement. Here is a list of class buffs and special abilities you will be able to unlock:

  • Imperial agent – Coordination Buff – Legacy Orbital Strike ability
  • Bounty Hunter – Hunter Boon Buff- Legacy Flamethrower ability
  • Sith Inquisitor – Mark of Power Buff – Legacy Lightning Storm ability
  • Sith Warrior – Unnataural Strength Buff – Legacy Force Choke ability
  • Jedi Consular – Force Valor Buff – Legacy Project ability
  • Jedi Knight – Force Might Buff – Legacy Force Sweep ability
  • Smuggler – Lucky Shots Buff – Legacy Dirty Kick ability
  • Trooper – Fortification Buff – Legacy Sticky Grenade ability

Some of the bonuses can get insanely expensive: A Ship Mailbox requires Legacy Level 10 and costs 500,000 credits.. Rocket Boost which provides an intense speed burst for a short time requires Legacy Level 8 and 2,000,000 credits! SWTOR needed a good money sink though and I feel like this gives enough incentive to players to invest their time and credits into it. For a fairly good list of Legacy rewards and bonuses check out this post on SWTOR Daily Quests.

Take the Day Band

Take the Day

In the first non-gaming news related story on JOB, I want to bring something to light that the brother of an active forum member is doing. Verdente’s brother Clint Hancock’s band is moving out of the garage scene and into the mainstream. They recently won the regional battle to play at the Billboard Music Awards that is usually in December each year and are headed to Vegas to duke it out against 5 other bands for the top spot. Keep them in your sights for when they make it big and you can be all hipster and say “yeah, well I heard of them back when JOB wrote about them.” They’ve got a Facebook and a recent single on iTunes called “Freaks” so check it out!
