Gift Ideas For The TOR Fans On Your List!

While we wait for BioWare to crank out one of the final Friday Updates before the official launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic, we have a different kind of Friday update for you: Black Friday Update!

As many of you know, the day after Thanksgiving in the US has come to be known as “Black Friday” due to being the largest shopping day of the holiday season and leaving retailers “in the black” on the balance sheet. We thought this would be a great time to dig up a list of things bound to be found on the wish-list of every TOR fan – even if that fan is yourself! :)

Star Wars: The Old Republic

I would be remiss if I didn’t list the game itself here. While the Collector’s Edition may or may not be available at retail launch, you can still order the regular edition and get some Early Game Access. There’s still a chance TOR will be sold out, so pre-ordering may be the only way you get to play! Don’t get left behind – do eet now! $59.95 – Pre-Order Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Star Wars: The Old Republic 60-day Game Card

Star Wars: The Old Republic 60-Day Game Card

Game time cards are a great way for people to pay for their time without having to use a credit card and needless to say they also make a great gift! We didn’t yet see any evidence of other denominations such as 30-day or others, but we have to assume they will be coming soon. $29.99 – Pre-Order Star Wars: The Old Republic 60-Day Game Card.


The Art And Making of Star Wars: The Old Republic

Usually found as part of the Collector’s Edition, BioWare elected to instead make this book available only through a separate purchase. For the hardcore fan and those who like a peek behind the curtain, this is a great gift! $26.40 – Order The Art And Making of Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Star Wars The Old Republic Explorer’s Guide

The nature of MMO games is that they change. Often. So sometimes it seems that these strategy guides don’t make a whole lot of sense to buy. However, for the completionist fan this too will be a must have. $19.49 – Order the Star Wars: The Old Republic Explorer’s Guide.


Razer Gaming Keyboard

Experience ultimate power and attain absolute control with the technologically revolutionary Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Gaming Keyboard by Razer. Ten dynamic adaptive tactile keys intuitively present all your skills, macros, and hotkeys with matching iconography straight from The Old Republic™ MMO for faster key-bind accessibility. And the multi-touch full-color LCD track-panel below can be set to either respond to direct gesture input or display interactive in-game information for an exciting new way to experience the game. $249.99 – Order Razer’s SW:TOR Gaming Keyboard

Razer Gaming Headset

Hear the ambient noises of an alien world, the chaotic explosions in battle on Alderaan, or the iconic buzz of a lightsaber powering up behind you, thanks to the positional 5.1 surround sound power of the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Gaming Headset by Razer. Get clear, precise three-dimensional audio for the tactical advantage, preventing backstabs and pinpointing hotspots of action all around you. $129.99 – Order Razer’s SW:TOR Gaming Headset 

Razer Gaming Mouse

The Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Gaming Mouse by Razer is also built with cutting-edge gaming grade dual wired/wireless technology to allow greater freedom of maneuverability when unwired without compromise on control or accuracy within the game. When the battery needs charging, switch the mouse to wired mode and jump back into the fray with zero downtime. $139.99 – Order Razer’s SW:TOR Gaming Mouse

Razer Gaming Mouse Mat

Power and talent for the Force™ are nothing without focus. A hero without allegiance has no place in the galaxy. With the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Gaming Mouse Mat by Razer, choose to swipe either for the righteous good of the Galactic Republic or the ruthless domination of the Sith Empire. And secure your revered or feared status in the universe. $49.99 – Order Razer’s SW:TOR Gaming Mouse Mat

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan

The latest novel from author and BioWare Senior Writer Drew Karpyshyn is perhaps the most anticipated item on this list (other than the game of course!) If you’ve played Knights of The Old Republic and were curious what really happened to Revan, this book will bridge the gap between that game and TOR. $15.13 – Order Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived

Once Star Wars fans caught a glimpse of the Deceived trailer, easily one of the best video game trailers of all time, there was no turing back. Our introduction to Darth Malgus set the stage for an epic story. $16.46 – Order Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance

Fatal Alliance by Sean Williams was our very first voyage into The Old Republic set around the timeline of the game. Of note, it highlights some Empire and Republic cooperation – will we see the same in-game? $7.99 – Order Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance.


The Jedi Path

While not technically a TOR-related item, this is a virtual must-have for any Star Wars fan, particularly those of the Jedi. This is an excellent collector’s piece that features a handwritten journal edited by many Jedi masters over time.  It explains the history and hierarchy of the Jedi Order, and what Jedi must know to take their place as defenders of the peace in the galaxy—from mastery of the Force to the nuances of lightsaber combat.   $62.99 – Order The Jedi Path Vault Edition.

The Book Of Sith

Counterpoint to The Jedi Path above, the Book Of Sith lets you explore your darker side and get the full story on some of the most famous Sith Lords along with their teachings. Of note for TOR fans, this tome does include writings of Darth Malgus. $62.99 – Order The Book Of Sith

All of these items are not only cool, but if you buy them through these links you are also helping support Ask A Jedi… and these Jedi robes ain’t cheap!

Happy shopping, and don’t get trampled out there. See you on Cyber Monday!

  1. Well I have been both naughty and nice, so I am unsure what I should put on the list. I guess its going to be a copy and paste to be sure

  2. Sick Website. Never been on here before. Just waitin on my early game access!!!!!!! But holy shit the Swtor Mouse and keyboard are hella expensive. such bull shit.

  3. These are too cool! I’d love to get The Jedi Path and I know quite a few people would appreciate either that or The Book of Sith too! Awesome finds.

  4. wish they had a tournament were you can win 1000 cartel coins for guilds on star wars the old republic and they had something that when you make a guild you don’t have to be a subscribers to make a guild or need your friends with you.
