One Star Fortress Down

A bunch more to go.  After a failed attempt to defeat a Heroic Star Fortress a few weeks ago, I returned to try again.  Last time, I just don't think my gear or companion influence was good enough.  Even with the buffs, I could not get past the 3rd part before the main boss fight.

This time was different though.  I still died at the 2 elite ambush, but I was able to make my way to the Exarch.  The fight with him was surprisingly easy for my Trooper.  It took a little while, eventually he met his fate.  The loot was unimpressive.  Not sure why it gives 208 items when you need 208 items to be there.  Oh well, I did score some nice decorations and a new companion.

 Overall, it was a nice challenge.  It was really the first time I had to worry about my gear in SWTOR.  Usually that's left up to the raiders, but I like having something to work towards as a solo player.  Now I just need to take on the rest of the Star Fortresses.  No rush though
