Blood Hunt

My gaming goal yesterday was to do the new SWTOR Flashpoint, Blood Hunt.  One of the nice things about the expansion is that the flashpoints are now a part of the story instead of being one off adventures.  As such, they have a solo mode.  There is some scaling going on and you get a super droid to help you out.

So I got to the point in the Rishi story where I was sent into Blood Hunt.  Basically, I had to question a famous Mandalorian.  You just don't ring the doorbell, of course.  Mandalorians are a feisty bunch, kind of like Klingons.  So I had to fight my way to some answers.

Overall, I thought the flashpoint was fantastic.  The setting/environment was very well done.  It had a dark hunter's preserve feeling about it.  The first few bosses were all animals.  They were pretty easy, and nothing too memorable.

Then we got to the Mandalorians.  This is where things started to get interesting.  The fights were a lot more fun and the voice overs were great.  To be fair, the whole experience was pretty easy.  I did actually die during the final fight, but the 2nd time around it was no sweat.

So great job BioWare.  I am really looking forward to the next one, Battle for Rishi.  Heck, I'm even tempted to try out the group version now that I know the fights.
